So we didn't win the super lotto, but can we still hit the jack pot?
Chances are you bought a lotto ticket. Chances are you didn't expect to win.
Here's what happened when I bought my tickets:
I talked to lots of people discussing the number one question, "What would you do if you won?" I heard lots of different answers; travel, buy homes, donate, give away, help my family and friends, hire an in home chef and masseuse, move into a mansion, build a home theater, and the list goes on. I indulged in these fantasies for they were all things I wanted too. However, I knew there was something seriously wrong with all of this. Here's the thing, you didn't win, I didn't win, millions of people DID NOT WIN. But why?!?! 1, the odds were not in your favor. 2, there is a good reason why money has to be earned by a majority of us. You can argue with me and say some people need it more than others, some can't earn the money, etc. This is in regards to the working class, the ones hustling, the ones who work for their money, work to stay alive, work to get the most out of life.
Here's the thing, I thought a lot before they announced the winner. I thought, if I won, I would still do what I love. Sure I would be able to do it differently, but I would still do it because I have a deep desire to change lives. THAT'S WHEN IT HIT ME. I am working hard every day to change lives because it is what I am MEANT to do. I am meant to change lives while getting the most out of mine. SO there is a clear reason why I did not win. I must continue to work hard, face adversity, and earn my living. Why? I will have the ability to genuinely connect and relate to those around me. You're probably thinking, you could do that with allllll the money in the world, this is true. However, the best part about what I do, is I get to grow with my clients, I get to see them accomplish their goals, and they can relate to me.
I will be honest, if I won the lotto, chances are I wouldn't be posting a video everyday, or lending my help and advice to everyone I meet, or working as hard to make my dream of changing lives a reality. There wouldn't be as much of a drive. Believe it or not, fitness is my life. It is my passion, my career, and fuels my why. When I bought a ticket it helped me really put in concrete that I do not do what I do for money. My passion is not driven by putting money in my pocket. I have to make a living off of it yes, I have to sell and make positive impacts on people in order to find my greatest success and have an income I can live off of, this is all true. But no way would I be able to give this up with 1 billion dollars. I would use a lot of that to blow my business up! Not because I need more money and need to sell, but because I NEED to help more people, I need to change and literally save lives.
My sister asked me, would you still go to school? I was hit with a wave of sad confusion. I was sad because there's no way I want to stop learning. I was confused because why would I need to learn and grow to have a career if I had all the money in the world? Well, it's passion. I have a deep desire to learn more, to become a Registered Dietitian (RD) and to continuously learn more to continuously deliver the best to my clients and the world.
So, I hit the jackpot when I didn't win. I have kindled and added fuel behind my fire. I have to continue doing what I love because I couldn't give it up. I want to change lives because it is what I am excellent at. I still want to have financial freedom, but the difference is, I want to know I earned it transforming people's body and mindset. I don't want a handout, sure I would take it. But damn it, I still want to be an expert. I can say that my abilities, talents, and business will give me the ability to change lives, while earning my financial freedom.
SO I can hit the jack pot everyday knowing I am living out my passion, super powers, and delivering the best to the world. I can hit the jackpot everyday by committing to myself and to those around me, finding balance and love in my life that I must to sustain and hold close. Money will come, if you really believe in helping others, find out how YOU can make a difference, what can YOU bring that's new, fresh, and necessary, what do YOU need to do in order to fulfill your life's dreams, in order to do the things you would have done if you won the lotto?
If money wasn't a problem, what would you do? DO IT! Invest in you, invest in your life, invest in learning and improving, the return of investment will come back 10 fold. You must treat yourself and invest in yourself to improve so you can bring more to the world, so you can make more of a difference. SO now you have won the lotto daily, rather than waiting for a 1 in a billion+ chance. Consider now, how do you hit the jackpot everyday? How will you win the super lotto in your life time? How will you use your winnings that I like to call: life, knowledge, expertise, commitment, desire, love, and passion?
