When To Say YES When You Want To Say No!

This past weekend was huge for me.

Most of you probably don’t know this, but speaking in front of large groups of people scares the sh$$ out of me.

I’d much rather jump out of an airplane (done it) or swim with sharks (done it), than stand up in front of a large group of people.

Don’t ask me why. It’s irrational, and I can’t explain it.

But you know what I did last weekend?! Check out this pic below…

I presented TWICE in front of hundreds of fitness professionals at IDEA World 2017.

My first presentation was about how to scale your fitness business using Facebook Groups, and the second was all about how to build your new-client onboarding system to create raving fans for life.


Did I almost pee before I went on stage? Of course.

Was my heart pounding out of my chest? Sure.

But I did it anyway because I believe the best things in life truly are on the other side of your comfort zone.

It’s not the act itself that is great. It’s the GROWTH that comes from it.

Darren Hardy said it best this weekend in his keynote…

You don’t achieve goals. You GROW into the person you need to be in order to achieve your goals.”

One of my commitments to myself is that I will NEVER let fear hold me back from reaching my goals or going for my dreams.

If something aligns with my values and goals….even if it scares the crap out of me, I’ve promised myself that I will always say YES, no matter how much I want to say no.

I’m continually challenging my coaching clients to get out of their comfort zone, and I practice what I preach.
I challenge YOU to do the exact same thing.

You truly can do ANYTHING and achieve ANYTHING in this life that you want to do. You just have to be brave enough to say “YES.”

Do you have something that you KNOW you should be doing, but haven’t done it yet because it’s outside your “comfort zone”?

Do it. Say YES.

Committed to your success,


P.S. Just want to say a huge thanks to my amazing husband, Keith, who has listened to HOURS of me practicing. He has probably heard me practice each speech at least 25 times. In fact, if I passed out on stage, he could have picked right up where I left off 😉 Thanks hun.
