Maybe you have a great job, a beautiful family, plenty of material possessions but on the inside it’s a different story. You feel disconnected and sometimes worthless. Your mind jumps back and forth between imagining a greater purpose you were created for and the hurts and fears that hold you back.
That’s how I felt. My young life started out with pain and insecurity. Always trying to be what everyone else expected of me, I found myself in one disappointing relationship after another. I always knew there was something greater in me, I just didn’t know how to pull it out.
I journeyed through life, keeping myself distracted with unsatisfying relationships and wearing myself out by trying to maintain a phony facade. Despite how tired and unfulfilled I was, I kept muscling my way through life, telling myself how strong I was.
Having spent over 15 years running personal training businesses, I was no stranger to shallow attempts at happiness.
Although I loved helping people achieve a level of health and fitness they never thought possible, I longed to go deeper with people than simply talking calories and muscle groups for the sake of looking a certain way. I wanted to help people find hope and purpose from the inside, not merely change the way they looked on the outside.
Before I could do that, though, I needed to reinvent myself. I had spent too long pushing my way through to something that unsatisfying. It was time for a breakthrough.
