I read this excerpt to all of my clients at one point or another... It's about turning pro, which is really easy to see in our business but it's also about turning pro in your life as well. Who you are being and who you show up as makes a difference. What are you willing to sacrifice to create the life you really want?
This morning I woke up after having very little sleep, about 3.5 hours broken up into little interrupted naps. All I wanted to do was to hit the snooze button.
With some language not appropriate for sharing I dragged myself out of bed at the very last moment to toss on my workout clothes and arrive exactly on time to my exercise group. Exhausted and dehydrated, I worked through a headache and a pinched lower back.
In that moment, I turned up as a pro in my own life.
I was willing to give up the warmth and comfort of my own bed so I could honor my body and create the health I truly desire. I hate working out. I hate that I can't have a leisurely cup of coffee while writing on the computer.
AND I want what I want MORE and am willing to drag my lazy out of shape but to fulfill a commitment to myself.
Where are you willing to turn up as PRO in your life? In your business? What needs to become a new non-negotiable for you to be able to succeed? Where does your own discomfort be less important than the potential of you you can be?
