"When the student is ready, the teacher will appear."
I must be ready for a total transformation of body, mind, and spirit because that was the theme of this year's IDEA World Fitness Convention held in sunny Anaheim, California last week. I attended four days of workshops, lectures, and master classes in a variety of modalities, including group fitness, yoga, the business of fitness, and even a mind-body connection presentation by Cheryl Richardson, author of You Can Create an Exceptional Life.
Virtually everything I took was absolutely fantastic and the presenters were truly top notch. The Expo with its 600 vendors blew me away. I discovered new types of equipment, classes, foods, and even a certification program for pet personal training! Sounds right up my alley, doesn't it?
I left the convention feeling inspired and knowing that I need to cut a few things out of my life in order to focus on fewer areas--less is more. Letting things go can be difficult, but considering that I keep hearing the same "messages" from recent books I've read and now the IDEA convention, the time for me to transform my life is NOW. Because the past is over and the future is always ahead of us. Now is the only time we truly have.
I capped off a tremendous week with a trip to Disneyland on a twilight pass. If anyone knows how to do things right to achieve success, it's the Walt Disney Company. I had an epiphany in Cheryl Richardson's presentation and again as I toured the park concerning myself and Disney. I won't share it at this moment, but let's just say it's a humdinger of an epiphany.
So what is ONE thing you can do to transform your life? What are you willing to do differently in order to change? Start with one small thing and each week add another small thing. In one year you will have made
52 positive changes--talk about a transformation!
So go ahead, become the change you want to see in the world. You can do it and you're worth it!
