There are so few stories out there about transformed lives, but so many about short term transformed bodies. When we challenge the paradigm, they can be one and the same. Here’s an example. She challenges the standard. She challenges the excuse makers. She challenges me.
This client really challenged me on my under-sharing problem. She was very open about her incredible journey (check out the IG post, swipe left and see her words: https://www.instagram.com/p/By2qgDzDgDh/ ). And it became increasingly evident to me how bad I am about sharing client journeys. I was so averse to marketing for so many years, thinking of it as the type of thing only phonies and bad fitness professionals do, that I avoided it. In my mind, professionals are private and amateurs are showy.
I now realize my avoidance of sharing denied the public to learn about what’s possible. Even to this day, I have weeks where 30 clients hit personal records in that week. But I’m lucky if I think to video 2 of them or save the shots or videos they send me. I may or may not remember to share 1 of every 20 I save.
So I’m working at it. The same way she opted to alter the paradigm of how she interacted with fitness, I have re-evaluated how public to be. My guess is most people out there have a paradigm that’s holding them back. Challenge it
