Decisions, Decisions...

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
~Dr. Seuss

Did you know that you're one decision away from greatness? Right at this moment. One decision... that's all.

When I became a Mary Kay consultant, I heard this a lot from my director, other directors, NSD's, people who were where I wanted to be. I heard it... but didn't quite believe it.

Then I kind of forgot about it because I let my MK career fall by the wayside.

But it keeps coming up again and again, like many truths do, waiting for me to really get it, and to allow myself to believe it.

And I'm finally there. Or rather, I got there about a year ago.

Thing is, it seems so simple. TOO simple: Make a decision and be great. Yeah, sure, there's got to be more to it than that. The 1st step for the FlyLady system: shine your sink. That's it?!

But really, that's it.... do something small and big things will follow. It's not complicated - just make a decision to do something: move more, get into shape, be happy, get out of debt, be great.

So why it so hard? Why do we resist making the decision to take hold of the reins of our life and going where WE want to go? Because making the decision is easy. It's the follow through that's difficult. You have to believe deep down that you CAN do it, and, more importantly, that you WILL do it.

Yep, that's the hard part.

I've consciously made several key decisions over the last year that have lead me to the amazing place that I call my life, and I'm ready to make another one.

One friend gave me a challenge without even knowing it: she asked if I've told the universe what I wanted to be when I grew up. I haven't because I wasn't quite sure what I wanted. I've been thinking a lot about it though. I'm not sure if being a personal trainer in the physical sense is really what I want to do, BUT I see it as an awesome first step towards what i want to do. I keep hearing that, if I'm doing what I love, the universe/God/The Powers That Be will conspire to reward me and help me stay on that path.

Sometimes the universe conspires to push you towards the path you're meant to be on and for me, that path is one where I help people in a life/health/wellness coach capacity.

I decided that by March 1, 2009 I'm beginning that journey. I'll order the program and by my 40th birthday I will have my PT certification so I can start in on the Nutrition and Wellness course. At this point I have no idea how I'll pay for it or find the time to study.

So, this is a call to the universe/God/PTB/Friends/Family: Bring it! Conspire on my behalf. Flaggship Fitness is waiting.
