Three simple rules in life: (1) If you do not go after what you want, you never have it. (2) If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. (3) If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.
I chose to start going after a goal of mine not that long ago, pushing aside all of my fears. I was worried about what people would think of me if I put myself out there. If I started asking more people to join me and my tribe. But the more I asked, the more I realized that you're never going to get your answer if you never ask the question.
I had no idea how many people have been watching me, watching us and our journey, until I started asking. I get a lot of messages, mostly spam or people wanting me to "rep" thier clothing line, but I do get a ton of people messaging me about how I inspire them. About how they saw my post and because of that, they went and worked out. Some don't know where to start, some are lost. But they all have the same thing in common, they just want help.
So I started asking and thankfully, they would respond. No, not everyone is ready and that's ok, but those who are, I make sure I talk to them almost daily, one on one. I don't just tell them what they need to do, I ask them how I can help. I become more than just their coach, I become their friend and confidant. Friendships and relationships grow daily because we trust another and we help each other reach our goals.
It kills me to think that if I never would've asked them to join me and my tribe, because I was too selfish and only thinking about what they would think of me, I wouldn't have been able to help them. Who knows where they would be?
All because of stupid pride......glad I stopped it from getting in my way of my goals!
Happy hump day loves!! 💓💓💓💓
