humbled by many things

humbled by many things

I sit here trying to think of an awesome topic to write about and all I can think about is how HUMBLED I am of these last couple of days

Two amazing things happened to me this weekend:
1. I bought my first BMW
2. I passed my State Board Exams for Massage Therapy

It might sound pompous that I talking about my new BMW but if you know anything about me you know everything I’ve driven in the past was modest at best. 1990 Chevrolet with 150,000miles, a 1995 Chevy Caviler, an most recently a Honda CRV.  I wanted something different this time. I wanted something to symbolize my hard work. Plus I worked really hard to pay off my old car, save a couple thousand dollars, and most importantly have kept my credit score at an A+ rating. It was a smooth purchase to say the least.

I also passed my State Boards for Massage Therapy on Saturday. Working 15 hour days have become the norm for me. Coaching classes, going to school, to coach more classes has not been easy. I do it because it brings me great joy to see my members work hard, but I’m human, I get tired and exhausted too. I’ve been studying for 6 months to pass this test. I worked really hard and it paid off!

I think you get what I’m trying to say. The expression “DO WORK” that I say all the time in class is an extension of what I’m trying to instill in you guys and that is “working hard always pays off”. If there is something you want reach for the stars. If you are passionate about something, go do it. Great things come to those who work hard, and remain hopeful.

DO WORK!
