Do You Want to Get Well?

I believe that, once you become CEO of your body, mind, and soul, you will be able to conquer all of life’s obstacles, and there will be no dream you cannot achieve. But why do I use the term CEO, and what does it mean? I KNOW that what is in your head is in your body. Therefore, the result of my coaching is a body with full connection and function between physical, mental, and spiritual levels. This is why I call it “Heavenly Body.” Once you create your Heavenly Body, you become a Centered, Empowered, and Original being.

How does being CEO relate to fitness and faith?

CENTERED means staying on your path.

I wrote a post about finding your own path and how to get into your own “soul tracks.” (You should read it.) If you follow these tracks and stay CENTERED (not letting any circumstances pull you off the road), they will eventually lead you to your HOME, which is living life to your greatest satisfaction and joy. This includes being proud and satisfied with your body, which you have transformed into a beautiful physique.

(I know the next one should be Empowered, but I will talk about that one last because it’s basically the main topic of this post.)

ORIGINAL means always true to yourself.

I can’t stress enough how important it is to find everything for ourselves instead of blindly following trendy tips, especially when it comes to our bodies. I always say to follow your own ORIGINAL diet: the ‘diet’ your body is asking for. I have one client who was on a Keto diet before she came to me. She said she had gained weight following the Keto diet because her body was storing more fat while eating Almond Butter. Each body is a unique machine that needs to be fed and taken care of uniquely, and only you know how — if you listen to your body.

EMPOWERED means you have THE power within you.

Every once in a while, when I talk to people about my coaching and beliefs about fitness, I get responses like, “I will start after I get a new job.” “I gained weight because of my husband’s cheating.” “I have tried everything; nothing works.” As a woman, as a coach, and as a Believer in our Higher Power, nothing makes me sadder than seeing a person give up on their own power. Waiting for a miracle pill, a new job, a new boyfriend, a special trendy diet, or the perfect star alignment to start eating healthy and exercising is just like the man in the Bible (and many others like him) who waited to be healed by the water:

“In these lay a great multitude of sick people, blind, lame, paralyzed, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well of whatever disease he had.”

“Do you want to be made well?” Jesus asked.

The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.

The man, having been paralyzed for thirty-eight years, didn’t believe in his own empowerment; he put his own life and future into the hands of the circumstances, hoping that one day he would be the first one at the water. How many of us are waiting for the perfect day to start taking care of our bodies? How many of us are waiting for the New Year to lose weight because, somehow on that day, all the stars are perfectly aligned to start a diet?

Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked.

We wait until the miracle happens to get the body we desire. But it needs to happen the other way around: get your body healthy and fit, and it will lead you to all the miracles. It is having your body in good shape that will open the doors for new opportunities, dreams, friendships, joy, and happiness. How long have we been waiting to be healed by the water? And how much longer are we willing to wait?

I KNOW that we, as human beings, have all the power within ourselves to create fit and strong bodies to the best of our abilities. (Not everyone needs to have the body of bodybuilder, just like not everyone must be a doctor.) However, we all have the tools to get our bodies to our own individual “fittest and healthiest” potential, once we take 100% responsibility for our own actions.

So, if you are asked, “Do you want to get well?” the REAL question is, “Are you TRULY ready to let go of waiting for the circumstances to change and, instead, change and heal your body on your own?”

Are you ready to see your own power and true potential?

Are you ready to be Free from your old self?

Are you ready to let go of your old pain, insecurities, fear, and food cravings?

Then: Pick up your mat and walk.

It is time to believe that YOU are as powerful as that person whose body you have always admired.

You too CAN have a happy and strong body. But ONLY you can transform your body: not the water, not the miracle, not the stars, not the new job or boyfriend…

Stay Centered

Become Empowered

Be Original

…and I promise you, you will create the life you have always wanted! That’s what we CEOs of our body, mind, and soul do!
