There are few things in life I appreciate more than encouraging words.
I also love to encourage other people. As a coach, I like telling my clients that I’m proud of them and they are doing a good job!
Just thought I would say thanks to some of the people that have encouraged me lately! It helps balance out some of the negative feedback and comments I get (reminds me of a time 2 years ago when I first began competing – you would be shocked at what some people say!) THANK YOU for loving on me and yes, I save all these emails and texts!
“…I just wanted to let you know, I love following your blog. It is inspirational to me. I am trying to make healthier adjustments to my life. My grandpa had a heart attack in September (he is doing well now), and it’s really made me think a lot about my health. Not to mention I just turned 26 and am still single and deciding to do some soul searching to find out what I want out of my life…I found it easy to let go of myself while I was happy in a relationship and now I’m here single and looking to improve the positivity in my life…”
“…I read your blog a few weeks ago. I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the message. I totally believe the Lord is using you to educate women on fitness and health etc.. I really think you are doing an amazing job with everything. I wanted to let you know that I will be reading from now on. It’s great! Keep it up!!”
…”Hey! Figured I’d give you a shout and say I always love reading your blogs! Totally enjoy knowing that there are other young and inspirational women out there! P.s. Finally started making more time to train…looks like a fitness comp is becoming more of a realistic goal for me!!!“
…”I thought of you as I recently have been evaluating my passions and career direction and if they match, and, well, they didn’t because I’m in the ___ industry and I just don’t fit in with it. Well, I found an opening for an ___. I remembered you recently leaving your “Corporate Gig” to pursue your current role and that popped in my head when I was deciding what to do. It’s unknown and kinda scary to step out to what’s uncertain, but I’m going to do it! And thanks for your example of stepping out and doing what you’re passionate about! I’ve gotten very interested in running and overall just being fit and healthy as well and who knows – maybe we’ll cross paths here soon should my job bring me to South Florida. Thanks again for the inspiration!”
…”Cor, I really never would have tried (my fitness competition) if it wasn’t for you encouraging me.”
…”I’m all the way in ___ visiting my mom and she told me “This girl in the Gold’s Gym postcard has such a pretty smile, she makes me want to join the gym.” LOL! You influenced my mom, honey!”
…”I just printed your picture so it is on my fridge to look at for a boost of motivation anytime I need to remind myself of what I want! Thank you!”
…”Good Lord, girl. Hard work pays off. You are sooo disciplined it’s insane. So proud of you. You seriously motivate me, and I am the least healthy person I know!”
Thank you all for coaching the coach! xoxo
