I was told I wouldn’t make a good coach. ⁣⁣

When I was starting out with my career in health & fitness – two comments plagued my journey. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was told I wouldn’t make a good coach from a fitness trainer I had really respected. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was too quiet. ⁣⁣
Didn’t have the personality for it. ⁣⁣
It wasn’t the right fit. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
That same year when someone asked what I did and I responded with ‘I’m a nutrition coach’, they replied that they ‘would only take nutrition advice from someone who is 100lbs and 10% body fat.’ ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As much as those comments stung, by some miracle even with my then very low self-esteem, I didn’t let them stop me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Maybe it was stubbornness of wanting to prove them wrong. ⁣⁣
Maybe it was the passion I had for genuinely wanting to help people. ⁣⁣
Maybe it was the fact that I had been in the exact spot of the clients I wanted to help. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But something inside me knew that I was capable and I decided to work for it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I think back to those two comments a lot and realize just how much they taught me. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I quickly learned to never let someone else decide what I was or wasn’t capable of. ⁣⁣
I taught myself that “Looking the Part” means nothing… ⁣⁣
and that having the heart, hustle, knowledge, & belief is everything. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Please never let fear of judgement or failure hold you back. ⁣⁣
You are FOREVER more than enough. ⁣⁣

What things are you letting fear and judgement hold you back on? ⁣
