One of my favorite things in life is serving others. As you may know, one of the ways I serve is as a mentor to others who want to their life back. I love helping, guiding, planning, talking with and sometimes talking off the edge of the cliff. This journey is about total transformation and will completely transform your life if you’ll do some work.
I can get a pretty good feel for where a person is at in “life” during our first phone call, and the work begins.
One of the people I’m mentoring right now wasn’t in a great place when we spoke. I asked them, ‘Do you believe in yourself’. I got a half hearted made up not real answer. I knew it and they knew it as well. That conversation happened on November 14, 2014. We have talked alot since then and deal with the issues they were facing…..fast forward to January 13, 2015.
I asked the same question in an email. When I got the response I just smiled and thought to myself, ‘this person is going to make it’. They have grown and it’s so much fun to watch this process work!! IT WORKS if you’ll DO THE WORK! (Side note, in that time, they’ve lost nearly 20 pounds and I’ve only begun the physical training in the last 2 weeks.)
I wanted to share this response, I believe this is encouraging to all of us. Coming from the place of our first phone call to this response, WOW! I’m so proud of them.
“I’ve always wondered when you would ask me this again. Do I believe in myself?
A month ago it was hard question, now I can say I do. I know I’m gonna have struggles everyone does. The weight loss is coming I know it is and I can’t expect it to happen over night. I have a goal I want to hit before my son’s birthday and I will hit it.
I never thought I’d have the confidence I have now back. I’m gaining my flexibility back and strength back in my ankles and my shoulders I haven’t had in a long time. I love waking up in the morning knowing once I get my son off to school I can start my day and workout.
Yes I believe in myself if I didn’t I wouldn’t have the confidence in myself I do now.”
