This past weekend I stepped entirely out of my comfort zone.
I felt like throwing up the entire time.
You see for months, my husband and others have been advising me to do online videos of exercises and post them.
I’ve resisted. I didn’t want to be on camera. I didn’t think the amount of time it would take me to film, edit and post would provide me a return on my investment.
But after attending a weekend fitness conference I realized that if I am going to grow my business, I have to be willing to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things.
So last weekend we filmed a series of 25 exercises, with the intention of posting 5 every day along with guidance on how to complete the workout.
Will my efforts pay off? Will people actually benefit from the videos? Will they not only benefit from them but see the value in attending my classes or hiring me as a trainer? It’s entirely too early to answer any of those questions.
But what I can tell you is I’m willing to take a chance, at least for a while, to see how this might help me grow as a person and as a trainer and instructor.
I’m passionate about health and fitness and for me to succeed I’m going to have to be willing to take a risk.
So I ask you, what are you passionate about? What risks are you willing to take to be successful?
