Are you taking responsibility for your success?
What does success look like to you?
For me, it’s:
* To be the best cyclist I can be;
* To execute all Pilates exercises and classes perfectly;
* To be the best mother I can be to my children; and
* To make my Pilates studio an amazing, nurturing environment that helps my clients achieve their success
But, while I know what success looks like, I don’t always take responsibility for it.
What does it mean to be responsible for your success? It means knowing what you want to achieve and how you’re going to achieve it. But, more importantly, it means knowing WHY you want to achieve it.
I thought about this myself the other day and spent some time journalling on it.
This is what I came up with. I want to be successful because:
* I want my studio to be a safe, non-judgemental place for anyone – all shapes, all ages, all genders, all races – everyone;
* I want to create a space that feels like home, where parents feel comfortable bringing their children and including them in their healthy lifestyles – a healthy body image and mindset starts at a very young age;
* I want to create a safe space where clients feel comfortable sharing their visions with me and allowing me the privilege of helping them turn those visions into a reality;
* To always provide my clients with the same level of support and guidance, no matter what stage of their fitness journey they’re in;
* I want to be someone that my clients can be accountable to, without judgement or criticism; and
* I want to help may clients to be happy with and in themselves and never to feel inferior.
These are just some of my ‘whys’ – the reasons I get out of bed every day.
What are yours? What keeps your fire burning? I promise that if you keep these in mind, you’ll achieve great things. Just image the feeling of running your first 5km or cycling 100km or losing 10kg. Visualise it, write down why you’re doing it, and then take responsibility for it. Figure it out and do something about it!
