Overcoming Your Fears to Follow Your Dreams

I was just thinking about what it takes to reach your highest potential...
Vision, Passion and quite possibly the most important...Courage
Courage: When you are afraid...hands shaking... butterflies swarming your tummy...and you forge ahead and follow your dreams anyway.

Sometimes making a BOLD move is the only way to force yourself to grow into the person you were meant to be. I look back on some of my boldest moves...quitting my full time job to become a coach...buying a one way ticket to California... At the time, they were the scariest decisions I've ever made, but they also turned out to be the most rewarding.

Fear is a poison that will try it's hardest to immobilize you and paralyze your actions. Every Time you give in to your fear, you lose strength and belief in yourself.

Draw a line in the sand and decide that no matter how difficult the path ahead may seem...you will push past your anxiety & keep moving forward.

I've been afraid to rejection, afraid of what others might think & afraid that I would stumble and fail. What I am most proud of is being fearful and taking action regardless. Many times, I have surprised myself by rising to the occasion and prevailing. But there have also been moments of great failure. While I may not have understood it at the time, those are the experiences that taught me the MOST valuable lessons.

So I'm asking you to trust me and challenge you to step out of the norm. Take a chance and vote on YOU. There will be obstacles, others might not understand what you are doing, you'll stumble, you'll fall, some people might think you're crazy (and others will be crazy enough to tell you so).
At times you might feel like the world and everyone closest to you is against your dream- telling you it's not possible. Telling you that you can't possibly achieve it so don't bother.
In those moments, you may falter. You might find yourself giving in to the fear. You may be so frustrated that you want to give up.
But consider the alternative... if you give up on your dreams.... will you be content living in a rut? With an endless loop of "woulda, coulda, shoulda" playing through your mind?
The pang of regret, "What would my life be like if I didn't care so much about what people thought?"
What if instead of failure...you achieve success beyond your wildest dream? What if pursuing your dream gives others the courage to bet on themselves? What is finding your joy and following it means a life of fulfillment?

Instead of fear being a roadblock, look it right in the eye and decide that you're going to GO FOR IT no matter that. The TRUE measure of courage is not whether or not you reach your goal...it's how many times you get back on your feet. It's standing up and pursuing your dreams.

You're never going to feel READY...and you might always feel that fear...but weight the FEAR against the incredible POSSIBILITIES...and I have a feeling you'll be ready to dive in headfirst 
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.

What is Beachbody Coaching?

If I could travel back 3 years, I would give a BIG hug to myself for taking the leap of faith and signing up as a coach (even though I wasn't sure what that meant).

Sometimes, you settle into a pattern or routine...and you don't realize it right away.

Sometimes you just don't realize it, but you settle into a pattern...and you stop dreaming.  You settle for "less than" or find yourself constantly saying "One day I will (insert dream)"
If you would have told me that in 3 years, I'd be a 2X Elite Beachbody coach..making 6 figures...with ZERO debt...I would laughed. 
That was so far from my reality at the time.
I was a retail manager at a dead end job...20 lbs overweight...miserable... surrounded by toxic relationships & I lost the ability to dream for a better life. I basically became a slave to my job (and no, it did not pay well). 
I'd say things like, "Gosh if I can just hang on for 40-50 more years...THEN I can retire and start doing what I want..."
By some crazy twist of fate (and a lot of late night informercials), P90X fell into my path and I soon discovered a whole network of positive people willing to help. They inspired me to dream a little bigger...to reach a little higher...to work ON ME and figure out what I wanted out of life. 
I never would have imagined that I would work from a BEAUTIFUL home with my man and puppies. I never would have imagined I'd have ALL of my debt paid off including my mortgage.  I never would have imagined that I'd be this HAPPY...and that I would achieve it all by simply helping others <3 font="" nbsp="">

If you are feeling lost, stuck, frustrated but you KNOW your life was designed for bigger things...I URGE you to take a chance & try something new. It MAY or may NOT be Beachbody, but I promise you...Nothing will change unless YOU do. 
I WAS you 3 years ago. I want to pay it forward and inspire you to DESIGN your future 
This THURSDAY Oct 16th, you will hear my journey with Beachbody along with my good friend Nikki Johnson and how she was able to leave an unfulfilling job to stay at home with her daughter for a lifestyle of total freedom. And she isn't stopping there...she has big plans including helping her hubby RETIRE!

21 Day Smart Start: Coaching Accelerated Training Beachbody Coaches

Ready to make a change? 4 years ago...I was sick of feeling STUCK...sick of feeling BLAH...sick of that overwhelming sense of being trapped.
Physically, emotionally, and financially...I needed a makeover! I found Beachbody, and while I wasn't sure WHAT that meant, I knew this was my chance to try something different...to start seeing DIFFERENT results!
I'm so passionate about sharing this and mentoring others because I have a wonderful obligation to pay it forward 
I'm providing YOU with the tools & support you need to not only achieve your fitness goals, but to guide you in building a future of freedom.

I'm so grateful that I found Beachbody because I was welcomed into a supportive community with open arms. We were able to set our little family up for financial freedom early. That freedom has opened so many doors & taken a lot of stress out of my life.
I was able to leave my job and come home full-time about 2 years ago. Being my own boss =    I wake up grateful every single morning.
Let me ask you this....
Why not YOU?
The beauty of this business is...together, we are BETTER. I'm looking to team up with those of you who want MORE. Whether that is MORE time for your family, MORE income to relieve stress, MORE positivity through supportive friendships, MORE emphasis on your health & fitness.
Whether you want to build a 6+figure business OR pay it forward by helping others...MY goal is to help you get there.
I am inviting YOU to be a part of my upcoming NEW coach training.
This is only available for MY coaches because I feel STRONGLY about dedicating my time and forming those ONE on ONE relationships.
I am 100% confident that I can teach you how to build your OWN empire... I can teach you how to build a legacy for YOUR family... from your home.
You will be held accountable & given the support you need to live a healthier, a happier, and a more fulfilling life!
So... if you are ready to get this ball rolling & want to be considered for one of the spots left for this training -
OR email me at katiheifner@gmail.com
EXCITED to start!!

21 Day Fix

Can you give me 30 min a day... for 21 days?
I'm looking for a few girls who are ready to go ALL IN with me. Most people are motivated in the spring & summer, but my sweet spot is the FALL. The upcoming holidays can be a slippery slope! lol
Here is the deal: You are going to get a workout program that tells you exactly what to do, simple but yummy meal plans, portion control to keep a lid on "too much of a good thing"  tons of support, and kick *** results.

It's simple, but it's going to take some effort and planning on your part. I want to help you learn how to make a LIFESTYLE change- not just sign up for a quick fix.
We start next week--tomorrow is the last day to get my fav program on sale! So who is in?!
Comment below with your email & I'll shoot you the deets!

My Story: Why I Became a Beachbody Coach and How It Changed My Life

Did you know...
  • I used to be a retail manager working crazy hours but I could barely pay my mortgage. 
  • I was about 20 lbs overweight despite the fact that I went to the gym almost daily
  • A relative stole $5,000 from me and ruined my credit by opening cards in my name and not paying them. 
  • Despite being a straight A student my whole life, I'm a college dropout.
  • I was too afraid to tell my friends I bought P90X from an informercial. I didnt want them to make fun of me. 
  • My "best friend" used to bring me cupcakes at work to sabotage my results and then gossip about me
  • I stopped dreaming big, and resigned myself to the fact that this was "just the way life is"
....and then Beachbody came along.

Sorry I seem a little quiet here (cramps)! I am naturally a very introverted person, so it was difficult to share my story...but I hope it will help inspire others to take the leap of faith and give this Beachbody thing a chance.

If you are thinking about joining, please fill out the application below so I can learn more about you AND please shoot me a Facebook message
Can't wait to partner up with you!

How To Make Oatmeal

I LOVEEE Oatmeal, so I'm always baffled when people say they don't care for it. Honestly, I feel like they simply haven't discovered the right oatmeal "recipe"
When it's soggy, I think it's yucky so here is how I make it

1/3 Old Fashioned Oats
Dash of Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie Spice
Sweetener (Stevia, honey...but my FAV is 1/2 tsp Coconut Sugar)
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp or less of water

Heat for 30 Secs
