Pay It Forward…
With a platform such as SPINNING®, we share our passion for health and fitness. As instructors, we have the fortunate opportunity to do more than that. We all have the ability to not only take charge of our own lives, but also to simply help and guide those we teach to do
the same. We have the opportunity to use the knowledge and resources we have acquired in our training and pass it on to others. The teachings from Master Instructors, the presenters at WSSC, ECA,
IDEA, CanFitPro, our college courses, our jobs, friends, family and perhaps even our children are valuable and should be shared.
About six years ago, I was given a book from a teammate. He asked that I pass it along to someone else when I was through reading it. Honestly, it’s taken me this long to realize that I haven’t actually passed
this gift along. However, I have unknowingly passed along all the good advice within it that helped me to become happier, to acquire a fulfilling career, and
to enjoy every area of my life. The book is written by well known author and life coach, Anthony Robbins, and is “Notes from a Friend”.
The lessons you can learn in this book and can pass along to those you coach are as follows:
how to turn around overwhelm
persistence and a sense of flexibility
there are no failures
learn from our mistakes
be a decision maker with confidence
the decisions we make that determine our destiny
on your beliefs
belief helps to control what you can see and feel
you see is what you get
on where it is you want to go
are your answers
questions that will give provide you with good answers
the great state of YOU!
empowering words vs disempowering words
through the metaphors of life
Short statements that sum up a big story…what’s your story?
Set, Goal! Setting goals to help build your future
Day Mental Challenge Exercise
I feel that I am where I am supposed to be at this point in my life because of those who have shared their knowledge, experiences and gifts with me.
Who has helped you in your life, and who will you pay it forward to?
