It\’s hard to stop thinking about all the little things that you have to do to keep your business afloat: marketing, advertising, practice, getting more people in your door, what you can do to make your place more popular, and if you are good enough to succeed.
While you drive your children to school, these thoughts are running through your mind (what did honey say?). You could be thinking about making dinner, or cooking (at the kitchen counter with a million miles from your mind), or washing your hair in a shower.. or shopping for vegetables at the grocery store.
You do everything right.
You\’re following the advice you were given in your continuing education and certification courses.
You believe in the work you do and are passionate about it.
It seems so difficult.
You\’re so busy trying to balance your fitness business with your personal and other paid jobs.
You are passionate about health and fitness, so you want it to be your only job.
Fitness instructors often feel like frauds. We call it \”fitnessfraud\”. A person who feels like a fraud is someone who has high achievement but can\’t internalize it and fears being exposed as fraud.
What does that mean? A health and fitness professional who feels like they are a fraud in our industry is one who is either overweight or underweight due to body image issues. They also have to be able to practice healthy lifestyle habits and not feel like they are modeling healthy living.
You are, in other words, driving to the drive-thru in a blurred mess after teaching your classes about exercise and advising your peers about taking care of their bodies. Yet, you continue to drink sugary drinks and cocktails.
We are all human. We don\’t judge people by their size. They may look \”big\”, but they were actually 300 lbs heavier the year before.
Enjoy the journey and remember to share the milestones. It is not possible to be perfect all the times.
#bossqueen Advice – If you feel like a fitness and health fraud, it is time to get in touch with yourself. Find out WHY you are feeling this way. What are you really trying to achieve by self-sabotage? What are you really looking for?
If you are looking to become a health and fitness professional, it is important to have a heart of gold and a passion for helping others. To have a successful health & fitness company, you must let go of your Mother Teresa image and be realistic about what it will take to make money.
Your bottom line is what is going to make money. If you\’re leading a vibe tribe, this is how you will make your clients happy.
#bossqueen Advice – Answer these questions honestly
Do you serve your tribe in ways that they cannot get from their competition in health & fitness?
Are you able to manage your day effectively enough to be a #bossqueen? Or are you just navigating the waters, responding to everyone around you and never moving ahead?
GUT CHECK #3: LIMITING BELIEFS THAT YOU ARE NOT AWARENESS OF
Limiting beliefs are beliefs that we hold in our subconscious minds. They can have profound consequences and limit our lives. They can be harmful to your life or your business, causing self-sabotage and negative thinking that leads to negative decisions, bad behavior, sadness, anger, depression, and other negative consequences.
Negative beliefs are a part of our DNA that run our lives. These beliefs started from the time we were born. Some even believe they began before conception and during pregnancy. They then continued throughout our childhood, based on our experiences and the relationships we made.
All of your subconscious beliefs about yourself, the world, and your relationship with others, money success, safety, love, spirituality and work were established by the age of seven. They were programmed.
Unfortunately, many people still use this primitive, negative programming.
#bossqueen Tips: If you\’re working hard and doing what they tell you, but not seeing the results you desire, it could be that your subconscious programming is causing you problems. You need to update your operating system!
Meditation, affirmations and positive thinking are some of the methods that have helped people achieve success. These are great ways to increase self awareness and be a more successful person in your personal and professional life.
