What happens when you have the guts to follow your dreams?
By “dreams” I mean following the things that excite you the most,
more than anything else in the world.
It’s October 2004, I get the call.
I’m penciled in to work the night shift down at the old paper mill.
This was my 6th year. I loved my job but looking back I realize it was
just a graveyard for shattered hopes and dreams. Everybody had an
epic story, and a compelling excuse.
I could have been this…
I could have been that….
I almost set up a business once..
Etc, etc, etc.
I believe there’s a divine spark in each of us, it’s that thing that’s
always nudging, always pressing, always guiding, but only
for those who take notice.
It’s March 2004; I get the call.
I was almost laughed out of the building when I broke the news to my
coworkers that I had joined the military, except for the boss who’s
lad was in the army. I often heard the other guy’s taking the piss,
placing bets on when I’d be back.
It’s now mid November 2005, I get the call.
I’m being deployed to Afghanistan with the British Royal Marines!
I was 6 weeks out of training when I received the notice. It was a day of
stark realization. The penny had finally dropped so to speak as I realized that
our only limitations are the ones we choose to place upon ourselves, this single
thing will determine the degree to your success.
It’s March 2010, I get the call.
Sound Fitness Team Training is born. 14 people show up for the first session,
2 people join. The talk of team games, fun challenges and creative circuits soon fill
the town, and not before long I’m 75 clients strong.
Workouts based on team work, forge friendships. Team games, if only for a brief
moment, are capable of revealing the child in us, the child which is usually obscured
by our daily troubles.
It’s March 2013, I get the call.
My website is all set, I’m ready to share my ideas with the world. I had worked hard,
months of planning, motivated by the endless hours that had passed, scratching my eyes out,
searching endlessly on the internet for new workouts.
My main passion, even more so than my business, revealed itself. A passion that would
see me fulfill a goal that was close to my heart. I wanted to inspire trainers all around
the world with my ideas I wanted them to have more fun doing what they loved, without
the stress of not knowing where their next awesome workout would spring from.
It’s July 2013, I get the call.
It seems so surreal.
