One Year Already? Time Flies!


One Year ago today, I left a safe and secure job to pursue my life-long dream of owning my own business.  With the amazing support of family and friends, I opened the doors of Active Evolution Fitness.  I began with 2 clients and quickly grew to well over 40.  I am very fortunate to be able to say that I have had many success’ and very few failures over the past year.  I have learned and grown a great deal and look forward to what the years to come have in store for me.  I owe my success to my wonderful clients who have trusted and believed in me along the way.  This past year has flown by.  It feels like just yesterday I was in the process of setting everything up and working hard to build my clientele.  I now have a solid foundation, and look forward to continued growth and expansion during this upcoming year!

The time it takes for dreams to become reality varies depending on the person and/or the dream.  Although my dream of owning my own business was developed at a very young age, I never imagined that I would accomplish it this early on.  In the spring of 2012, a close friend of mine gave me a framed piece of art with the quote, “The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be…because of all I may become I will close my eyes and leap!”  I hung it in my bedroom and read it every morning (and still do).  After reading it day in and day out, I quickly began to overcome my fears and hesitations of doing what I had always dreamed of.  I slowly began putting the pieces together of what it would take to begin my journey and within just a couple of months, I closed my eyes and took that leap.  I did not have every detail figured out nor every question answered, but I believed in myself.  I knew, at that moment, I was as ready as I would every be, and that leap was necessary.

We all have dreams, whether personal, professional, spiritual, etc.  The initial phase to accomplish those dreams is all the same.  You must first believe in yourself.  Tell yourself every single day that you can accomplish your dreams, that you do deserve to have the life you have always dreamed of.  Positive self talk is the game changer when working towards accomplishing your goals and dreams.  Think about a goal or dream you are working towards right now.  Take a few minutes and write down a few positive affirmations that you can say to yourself every single day.  Begin today.  Soon, you will truly believe those affirmations and you will be that much closer to accomplishing all that you have dreamed of!
