Cool Stuff Happens When You Show Up
Conference life, yall.
I’m in New Orleans, waking up at 4:45am to go to a workout, and then staying up all day being inspired and learning new things – that sounds fun!
I’ll admit, it’s only fun for a few days and then I need to sleep!!
One lesson that the Universe keeps reminding me of is to SHOW UP
Here’s my sweaty hyped up video about it:
Showing up can be super simple or filled with mental drama.
This weekend I indulged in some mental drama about attending a 6am workout with my fit family and fitness mentors. Sometimes I feel excited and then nervous about something. As the event approaches, I wonder if I should even bother to show up. I thought “I’ve done this before. I can miss it and get some sleep.”
This time, I remembered how fun it would be and the people who will be there, so I set my alarm and made the decision to go.
Often when I am anticipating an early morning, I have trouble sleeping, so I woke up several times throughout the night. Finally it was 4:45am – I got up and got out the door by 5:05. Yawn!!
What happened next?
It was my first ever front row experience. AND I got to high five my favorite fitness star.
Wow – I’m glad I didn’t sleep in and skip that!
You never know what’s going to happen when you show up.
What would happen if you made a decision once and stuck with it? You didn’t second guess yourself, or go over and over it in your mind.
I’m practicing this because for me – what happens is I’m a happy human. I feel more peaceful.
Next time you hear about something that sounds fun or you think it would help you – at your work, your hobbies or your friends group – Just go!
So many amazing things could happen that you’ll never imagine!
At the end of the workout, the leader shared some words of wisdom:
Blood flowing through our veins is involuntary. It just happens. We don’t choose it. However, we do choose our excuses. We choose when we show up or when we quit.
I’d love to connect! Tell me about a time that you showed up and something great happened!
