Believing In the Power of Your Dreams

As I sit here in sunny Florida, feeling the sun, smelling the fresh air and hearing the chatter of 30+ girls discuss their dreams! I am floored at how much my life has changed within the past year.

A year ago, I was a substitute teacher, loving the work, but not able to find solid employment. I also wasn’t happy having to leave my baby girl while I worked all day. I knew I had to go and that I had to use my education! After all…why else did I go to college and earn not one, but TWO masters degrees?! My heart was at home, my dreams were BIGGER and I KNEW that I wanted MORE out of my life……I just didn’t know HOW I was going to achieve that.

I was always a ” believer ” or a dreamer….my hubby always calls me a dreamer! I knew that life has more to offer than just a cubicle, a mortgage payment and two days out of the week to yourself. I knew that other people in this world had different lives. Lives that are happy, fulfilling and full of joy! I just needed to find mine.


Fitness and healthy living was always a passion of mine! About a year ago, I was researching new at-home fitness workouts and stumbled upon Beachbody. I found my coach through this search and was SUPER skeptical about what it was that she does. I continued to research and find out more because it looked like a lifestyle that I would love. It also looked like it could pay my bills! Haha! I signed up and paid the $39.95 fee and thought that you only miss the chances you aren’t bold enough to take. I waited a month to actually do anything with the business….still a bit skeptical…but once I felt a little more certain of it all, I was ALL IN and I haven’t looked back yet.


These past 9 months have been LIFE CHANGING. This business isn’t about selling shakes and workout DVDs, like so many believe it to be. It’s about letting go of what holds you back, reaffirming that you are made for so much more than the status-quo. There is a “norm” that is placed upon us by society. You are almost expected to live a certain way, and to do certain things and be “okay” with not being in love with your life. I disagree! Life is meant to be lived! If I had never followed my passion for fitness, I would never have found this opportunity that has changed my life and will continue to do so.

What is your passion? Find what speaks to you. What gives you butterflies to think about? What do you love to do that you could get lost in for hours? Find it! Follow it and discover a way to make it your living. It is your purpose and why you are on this earth. Search until you KNOW that you’ve found it. You will discover how much better your world can become and you deserve to know how that truly feels.

If you think coaching may be something that you’re interested in, leave a comment……you never know….it could just change your life! đŸ™‚



Break Out, by Joel Osteen

One component that is VITAL to your success as a coach is something called, Personal Development. When I first started as a Beachbody coach and learned of this, I was not as convinced as I am now, about just how important Personal Development really is to not only your business, but to your life! It can improve and enhance you in SO many ways by developing your self-confidence, your self-worth and your knowledge of how to build and run a successful business!




I have been reading Break Out, by Joel Osteen and I LOVE IT!! I have always believed in God and in a higher power. I was raised in the Catholic Church and went to “Church School”, as we called it; however, I had never really developed a strong relationship with God. I feel that I now have and in doing so, my life has been even more fulfilled. I can feel His presence and I know that everything that happens to me, is for my betterment.



This book does a good job of explaining how by developing a relationship with God and building a strong level of FAITH in Him and in His works, how your life can be more rewarding, fulfilled and how you can truly have everything you have dreamed you would. God would not have put a dream in your heart, if he did not equip you with the tools to achieve it. You have to BELIEVE in yourself and in your GOD that know that no matter what, your destiny will be fulfilled. You may not see a way, but God HAS a way.




You see, God’s vision is so much greater than our own. We aren’t able to envision what God has in store for our lives, because it may be TOO big.  You may be asking God for a dream to pass and you feel that He isn’t listening. You may have asked Him to help you to achieve a promotion, a new house, a new partner —-> and it hasn’t happened. The KEY is to NOT get discouraged or let down. You need to have FAITH that he is doing what HE envisions for you life — and that it is EVEN BETTER than what you could have imagined!! You cannot get discouraged when doors close or when opportunities don’t come to pass on YOUR timetable. Have FAITH, believe that something BETTER is on it’s way. God knows what he is doing. He has already planned out your future and your opportunities, and he wants them to be for THE BEST. HIS timetable is what you need to trust — and that can be very freeing once you do.


So…..I ask that you step out in FAITH, TRUST  that the Creator of the Universe has your BEST interest at heart. He only wants what is BEST for you. Know that. Believe that. Stop worrying……….and start BELIEVING!
