Facebook brought up one of my best memories today: The day I won an award for Best Self Help Book!
The Three Pillars of Strength: Increasing Your Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Fitness was the first book I had ever written, and I’m EXTREMELY proud of the hard work I put into it. I wrote that book while still working in corporate America. I wasn’t happy with my job or direction in life, and knew I had to make some changes. I knew I had to make some decisions, because there was no way I’d last much longer.
It took 18 months to write that book. I’d stay up till 2am some nights, writing it on my I-phone. it was rough and didn’t seem like I’d ever finish but I did! And to my surprise, it even won an award!
That one book was the springboard to EVERYTHING: personal training, ghost writing, editing, 10 more books, wellness coaching, and even the Virtual Learning Center. If I didn’t write this book I don’t know where I’d be today!
This one event had a major impact on my life. it gave me the confirmation I was on the right track and that dreams DO come true if you’re willing to put in the work!
This book is still the cornerstone of everything I believe: to be the best we can be, we must work on our physical, mental and spiritual fitness simultaneously.
- What good is mental toughness if you’re too sick to give your all?
- You can be physically fit, but what if you lack the mental toughness to reach your goals?
- How spiritually fit are you if you lie, cheat and steal your way to the top? What are the chances all the harm you caused others will come back to haunt you, and cause you to lose everything?
- What good is success if you’re too sick (obesity, heart disease, etc.) to enjoy it?
I live by these principals to this day and will continue to. It’s critical we all strive to be the best we can physically, mentally, spiritually AND financially.
Never give up, and ALWAYS go for your dreams. You never know what you can do until you try!
