NO ONE TOOK A STAND EXCEPT FOR ME.
I was at this Online Coaching Seminar in New York a few months ago to give a speech.
One man, who is a massive influencer in his online space and niche and shall not be named, went up to give his speech.
Let me preface this by saying this is a man who has made a positive impact on lots of lives and has dominated online and really knows his marketing and he's not at all a bad guy.
Anyways, He asked something along the lines of, "Who here believes in that mindset, manifesting, woo woo, spiritual, meditating, law of attraction bullshit?"
(Clearly not his style which I had already known from his online community)
I looked him in the eye and raised my hand high in pride even KNOWING he was going to try and shit all over the idea.
I looked around the room and saw maybe 2 other hands about 1/4 way raised and nervous looking faces or faces of agreement with his statement.
He looked at me and said something like: "I'll be making money and taking your clients in the meantime then"
I laughed. Unphased by the remark or his approach but baffled at the same time.
Lots of thoughts went through my head, I'll b and honest some were loving and some were not so loving but they all came from a positive space.
Here were some:
1. You should've been in the room for my speech. (Just sayin--Believe your way to Badass would've really confronted you).
2. You can have those people anyways, my type of people love the inner work and recognize it's importance in achieving the most fulfilling success. I trust and know mine will come. I don't need to push or be in pain to attract them.
3. Why didn't any of these other future 'million dollar' coaches raise their hand? lol
4. Why is this triggering me so much?
5. I respect everything he's created, the changes he has made, and I KNOW deep down that INTERNAL work was done by him to get there whether or not he will admit it or call it like it is. WHY? Because he's a soul. Just like you and me. And souls reside WITHIN to radiate OUT, its the way it works.
Let's set some things straight:
A. It's not 'woo woo' to listen, feed, and understand the voice inside of you. It's actually quite normal.
B. In order to get others meaningful results that stem from within vs from external factors, you must do the work for yourself first.
C. Mindset work isn't a chore. You have a mind. Your mind creates your thoughts and beliefs and choices so you may as well work it to be the best it can be.
D. However you slice it, you always get out what you put in, so call it a bullshit law or call it energy and frequency, I don't really care, it's just a matter of your beliefs.
E. There are successful people who do extensive internal work and those who do not. No one is better than anyone. We all just chose a different path. But inner work is not fake or unreal it's science.
F. Psychology-nuff said.
NOW, let's consider this.
The fact that I was practically 'alone' in this whole responding to the question thing is a PROBLEM.
I see it like this.
In a room full of fitness coaches who don't raise their hand for mindset work, THERE IS A PROBLEM.
This is what's wrong with the industry.
Diet. Exercise. Corrective movements. Programming.
NONE OF THIS IS ENOUGH.
It's about Building More Than Just a Body
Physical results will never be fulfilling to someone who seeks internal growth.
External factors are NOT what have caused the person to become the way they are. In fact, it's not what they are but how they feel about who they are.
It's the inner work that creates the physical result.
Deep levels of releasing and soul cleansing are required.
Belief shifts and consciousness raising are required.
With inner work comes empowerment to make the BEST decisions for yourself that come from a deep sense of knowing, trusting, honoring, and loving for your soul and the vehicle in which it carries you.
So instead of being reliant on what you 'should' do or someone tells you to do, you are then already capable of tapping into the knowledge you ALREADY have within you that just needs to be REMEMBERED and you can move through life with ease and a feeling of freedom versus well control, restraint, mistrust, and confusion.
Oh and incase you haven't yet, ALWAYS stand up for what you believe in, REGARDLESS of who is asking you, challenging you, or making a point to belittle you for it.
Your souls purpose and message is not meant to be hidden. So if you believe in something you either believe 100% or none at all.
I'd die for my message. I do WHATEVER IT TAKES to make sure that people start Building More than Just a body by focusing on aligning the inner work with the physical results by emphasizing the importance of mindset, self-love, confidence, behavior, and wellbeing allllllll supported with proper training and nutrition.
