Chalene Johnson: Smart Success Seminar

Monday, April 15, 2013

Just got home from Chalene Johnson's Smart Success Seminar and omgosh I have one work for it: AMAZING! or as my Bombshell friends would say...Mind= blown lol
Oh my gawddd it's CHALENE!! 

The girls! my loves!
What is success?
Well I guess it depends on who you ask...according to Google, Success means "The accomplishment of an aim or purpose."

This might seem random, but hang in there I swear I have a point. Some mornings I wake up and think "how did I get this AMAZING beautiful life that is my reality?" I swear it feels like a DREAM sometimes. It's weird to backtrack and look at how far I've come.

College is supposed to be the time you figure out your calling in life and really move towards your goals. It's weird because I've always KNOWN I was going to do something amazing but I could never figure out what exactly...I fell into a job working retail and moved up to management and somewhere along the way...I lost the spark. Don't get me wrong...I worked HARD. And long long hours but the successes felt shallow. I used to think...if I can just survive 40-50 more years of this...I will be able to do what I want to do and not live pretty much paycheck to paycheck. 
At one point, I remember feeling like I was drifting...with no set goals or big ambitions. I'm a girl who runs on BIG dreams and ambitions so I think it made me a little depressed. 
It wasn't until I found Beachbody (more specifically...coaching) that I started to dream again and set some goals. When you know where you want to go, what you want to achieve and put your goals on feels SO satisfying when you ACHIEVE them!

My first goal as a coach...get my Shakeology paid for...I had to share Shakeology with my friends/family and get 3 of them to love it as much as I do. 

My next goal was to get my car payment covered....from there it grew...get my mortgage covered...and then a BIG GOAL.....gulp....QUIT my "real job" and do beachbody FULL TIME.

Do you ever have a goal that you feel like it takes FOREVER/no time at all to achieve?! haha It's weird because I felt like I waited SO LONG to get there and yet it happened before I knew it. 
TODAY is my ONE YEAR anniversary as a FULL TIME COACH. And in that time, I've been able to help and serve so many more people than I was when I had to juggle it all. 
It's amazing to say that it's been ONE YEAR of owning my schedule, owning my life, owning my agenda and being the deciding factor in MY success! I decide how well I do, how many people I reach, how much time I dedicate to my passion. 
And it feels good!

Chalene Johnson is all about goal setting and reverse engineering it to figure out exactly how to get there. 
I wrote out MY definition of success and what I want out of life so I know how to craft my days to achieve it. 
MY DEFINITION of SUCCESS:  I feel fulfillment everyday. I’m doing what I love. I’m challenging myself and learning new things all of the time. I work with the people I love and care about. I work according to my schedule and when I feel like it. I have total freedom over my schedule. I work from home in my beautiful office where I feel productive and creative. I have my own ‘studio” space and workout space. I date my husband (boyfriend for now hehe). I want a deep connection and support from him and for him. I have inner peace and clarity. I have the money to do the things I love with the people I care about. I have the financial freedom to provide a ridiculously amazing life for my family. Jay pursues his interests and follows his passions along side me. I mentor women and have created incredible leadership in my business so that my presence is not needed for the business to grow at an insane rate. My business thrives with my leaders and I have taught them how to create the same freedom in their lives, the freedom they crave. I wake up every morning with butterflies- excited to take on the day. I have the freedom to honor my priorities. I control my destiny, my schedule, my income and my happiness.

Now that I have a CLEAR vision for the future, I can continue creating it and making it better! I already am my own boss so while I DO control my schedule and the hours I GOAL is to become better at managing my time so that I can help more people and work with the people I truly connect with. My passion is helping other women gain confidence and follow their passions. I love helping them build a successful Beachbody business (and look good doing it hehe)
My mentor from afar is Marie Forleo. She has no clue how much she inspires me! If you haven't checked her out you HAVE to go to like right now!! 
My mission is to create my website for mini Marie Forleo's like me who want to create a brand, a business and infuse their personality, their passions and a lot of love all rolled into one. "It doesn't take talent or luck to succeed, you just have to DECIDE"
It got me thinking about who I enjoy working with and who starts a business that THRIVES

"I fall in love with people’s passion. the way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love & the way they fill with light."

This is who I am looking for...this is the type of person I want on my team:
I know what it takes to succeed in this business and where I am going...I'm looking for the women who want to join me on this journey and achieve THEIR definition of success. 
If you think this list describes you, I would love to hear from you =)
