Validation

The path you walk is yours to walk alone…. while it would be nice for your friends and family to offer support and encouragement, they do not NEED to agree with you 100% of the time or even understand why you do what you do.   You are the one living your life and it is up to you to make the most of it.  For years, I tried to live a life that I hoped my family and peers would approve of… no, be in awe of… and the thought of being successful revolved around how many zeros were in my annual salary… WRONG!   Guess what… I decided in 2012 to change my life… and while I wound up taking a HUGE pay cut, I am much happier… It was a big risk to shift gears into Personal Training from working in Corporate America as a Property Manager for nearly a decade (total nerd with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering)… But my passion for LIFE kept pushing me in this direction.  Here’s a side note, I still have the admiration and awe of my parents and friends, because I had the courage to take the leap.

Many times, it is best to move in silence, and let the outcome speak for itself… I believe following your passion is a good starting point, but make sure you plan a few steps and can pay your bills… Then…

let it go!

I’m a blind jumper. Lol. But the best pair to have besides a pair of “huevos” is happiness and passion. They tend to go hand and hand. If you believe in yourself first, then everyone else will in their due season/time.

Cheers!
