count my blessings....

It occurs to me on a daily basis how blessed i am to absolutely love what i do!! I don't consider my position as a Personal Trainer a job or a vocation or a trade although it certainly requires plenty of qualification, knowledge and experience (+ so much more) to be a good Trainer. Instead, I regard myself as a person of influence with absolute positive intention - the opportunity that people allow me every day to have effect on their lives is truly a priviledge. This means more to me than a job, it is a gift, one that I accept with grace and integrity and one that I devote my attention to for the purpose of growing and learning and continuously teaching!! Thank you for those of you who have been sharing this journey with me (you all know who you are:-)) and thank you to those who are open and ready and willing.....

Commitment is a capacity, and it grows as a muscle grows, by being exercised."

The fact that you acknowledge that the relationship you have with your clients is something very special... a privilege of sorts, is what makes you a gifted trainer. Your respect for that relationship and for the potential that lies therein is what will always help you stand out among the many who can only attempt to bring to their work what you do each day.
