I was 8 months into my journey as a health and fitness coach when I found my purpose. I was on day 3 of the man cold where I had stayed home in bed nearly dying 😂🤪 ( Come on, you know us men when we get sick)
Gabby told me to get up, shower, get dressed, and walk to pick Kina up from the school bus. As I was walking down our culture-da-sac in the direction of the school bus stop I was a little over half way there when the bus pulled up and stopped. I stop sign flung out and I heard the hiss of the doors as they opened. Then these two little hands grabbed the hand rails and this little 5 year old girl looked up and our eyes met. A huge smile from ear to ear spread across her face and her eyes grew larger.
I on the other hand was stopped in my tracks, tears streamed down my cheeks and a profound thought came to my mind.
“How many of these moments have I missed? How many more will I miss if I don’t keep trying? You must not give up.
She ran to me, I picked her up and spun her around in my arms. That moment I decided. I will not miss Donuts with Daddy dates. I will not miss recitals. I will not miss anything that she wants me to be a part of in her life. I will HAVE the freedom to decide what to do with my time and life.
Then something deeper hit me, a purpose more profound. They say there are two of the most important days of your life. The day you are born and the day you learn WHY. This is my purpose. If this college dropout could do it, I could teach, mentor, and guide ANYBODY out there to accomplish the dreams they have.
This was the screensaver that I made with her that week to remind me DAILY of the sacrifices that I was making to create the life that I wanted.
Are YOU one of those people who knows you are meant to do BIGGER things with your life but never really had the platform and place to GROW? If you are, I’m looking to mentor 10 new STRONG, CONFIDENT, WILLING to learn and WORK people to finish out 2018. Comment interested and I will reach out to you.
