“Remember, what you get by reaching your destination isn’t nearly as important as what you become by reaching your goals” Zig Zigler
It has been my experience that we all have what the ability to create an extraordinary life. If you are one of those people that want more out of your current situation, your health, your fitness, your wellnessthen I invite you to step out of what is current for you and create extraordinary.
You can claim or reclaim your dreams and harness this power to succeed in actualizing them. Changing or going beyond our present life, the beliefs surrounding it and the limitations we put on ourselves is not easy and more than possible.
 I want to explore with you this idea and some ways that have worked for me and may work for you as well. I had to go through this very process on my way to the top of many mountains and in other endeavors like starting a business, living overseas, anything that has felt a bit like jumping off a cliff.
Here is some homework to get you started on this journey of waking up to your passion and creating the life you desire. Feel free to use health, fitness and wellness as your focus if that helps you be more specific.
1. What did you love to do as a child or young adult? In what ways did you like to move your body? Make a list.
2. What was your perfect day to date? Describe this in detail. Does it have any elements related to health, fitness and wellness? If not could it?


We start with our dreams and build from there, one step at a time. The above exercise is only the beginning and I trust will be a huge support for your big picture goals!!
Once you have decided that you are now wanting to make healthy lifestyle changes ,for example, you want to have more energy, feel more alive, sleep better, feel lighter you are ready for the next step. It is a mind set change so that you  can have even more clarity around the kind of changes you are making, what works best for you and what you will commit to. Think of this as searching for boots that fit you. What does it means to find YOUR hiking boots in what may be uncharted territory? This is a process and only you can answer this question. Are you making changes for you or for someone else?  Keep in mind that there are lots of tools and strategies you will need on this journey but first off you need to be standing firm in your own boots.
It is imperative that you are careful and pay attention to every step along the way. A most important consideration to think about as you explore what it means to be climbing in your own boots is your clarity of purpose. How do you know you are on the right track? My experience has been that the right goal will involve a combination of your strengths, passions and desires. I have always felt a sense of excitement, some fear and increased energy when I think about my goal and a desire to get started on the plan. If you use these suggestions around creating, healthy,lasting lifestyle changes or preparing for a larger fitness goal(running a 10 K, cycling a century, hiking to a destination that you have only dreamed about) it will give you an anchor.
It is an honor to share some ideas with you that may support a different way to bring about desired change.  Change is up to you and the more tools you have , the more support you enlist the easier this journey will be. Behavior change is creating life long habits. Here’s to your new ones!
It is my desire to help people reach their health, fitness and wellness goals. For more information I can be reached at
