Action Creates Opportunities

Recently, I've come to accept that in order for things to happen, I need to get out and MAKE them happen. I can't sit around waiting for a sponsorship or an opportunity; I need to actively seek and take advantage of opportunities.

So I'm very excited to share that this new approach has led to some very exciting things for me!

This past Sunday, J and I drove up to Syosset, NY to Bev Francis' Powerhouse Gym - aka the East Coast Mecca of bodybuilding - so I could film a workout video for Fitness Rx Magazine online.

My GPS prefers to provide the scenic route, so we ended up driving directly through downtown NYC on the way to the gym!
It was such a fun experience! I'm so thankful that recording my video blogs helped me feel more comfortable on camera.

The video shoot led to another opportunity: submitting guest blogs on the website! I can't think of a better fit for me: it combines my love of writing with my love of fitness. How perfect!

My first guest blog was posted yesterday! The workout video should be posted soon, and of course I'll post the link to it on here!

I'm so proud of myself for finally taking the initiative and following through with opportunities. In the past, I've been guilty of letting things slide and saying things like, "Yeah, I prolly SHOULD go after that opportunity," or "Well, I STARTED filling out the form ..."

No more of that! I'm going to take action, follow through, and finish things! Thank you to FitnessRx for offering these opportunities to me. I feel empowered and motivated, and am looking forward to even more exciting things to come!
