Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank.
Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace.
Suffering usually relates to wanting things to be different from the way they are.
Nobody who ever gave his best regretted it.
At the end of the day, vigorous self examination is the greatest form of maturity.
Life isn’t about getting and having,
it’s about giving and being.
Be happy in the moment, that’s enough.
Each moment is all we need, not more.

There will be times in your life where you’re challenged,

where nothing seems to be going right,

where tragedy strikes and you’re left to pick up the pieces.

In some cases,

being strong is simply about being able to persevere through extreme adversity.

It can be something horrific like the tragic loss of a loved one,

or something difficult and trying like getting laid off.

It can also be emotional trauma,

like recovering from a divorce or a tough break up.

These experiences leave us feeling weak and hopeless.

But that’s no reason to stay down for long.

No matter what you’re going through in life,

other people just like you have gone through the same or worse

and come out stronger on the other side.

It’s times like these you need to be strong and never give up.

But it’s important to remember that setbacks, failures, and tragedy are a part of life.
Whether we manage to find joy and success in the daily struggle of life
is largely dependent on our ability to persevere through even the toughest adversity without ever giving up.
“We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.”
“The gem cannot be polished without friction,
nor man perfected without trials.”
“Tough times never last,
but tough people do.”
“It is only in our darkest hours that we may discover the true strength of the brilliant light
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life.
It goes on.”

BEST SPEECH EVER…. ROCKY…..

Let me tell you something you already know.

The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.

It’s a very mean and nasty place

and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees

and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.

But it ain’t about how hard ya hit.

It’s about how hard you can get it

and keep moving forward.

How much you can take and keep moving forward.

That’s how winning is done!

Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth.

But ya gotta be willing to take the hits,

and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody!

Cowards do that and that ain’t you!

You’re better than that!

PATIENCE, TRUST & TEAMWORK:
the below pictures show my client Christine Wallace​ BEFORE PICTURES
& her last competition which took a period of 2 yrs to accomplish.
Her 1st show 2012 was Bikini where she placed 4th,
then she did Figure 2013 and got 2nd.
Then 2014 moved up to Physique and was CHAMPION.
So many people think this CHANGING OF THEIR BODY TRANSFORMATION is INSTANT…
and when they don’t get what they want,
flippantly jump ship & try another trainer usually lookin for an easier, softer, quicker way to get what they want.
Christine is a perfect example of a GREAT STUDENT/ PROTEGE
as she listens to her coach & follows instructions for diet, training, supplements
and all the things a coach gives their client in order to succeed,
she works hard, stays consistent, stays focused,
when she’s struggling she reaches out, tells me what is going on,
and what obstacles she’s up against so i can help her overcome them.
If you don’t tell your coach what is going on they can’t help you,
Success is far beyond lifting weights, cardio & a meal plan….
Its a balance and dance of TEAMWORK between CLIENT & COACH.
And only through COMMUNICATION, PERSEVERANCE, COMMITMENT, DEDICATION,
& TRUST ON BOTH SIDES can the COACH/CLIENT relationship & GOALS OF EACH COME TO FRUITION….
thank you Christine for allowing me to be apart of your journey & life,
and having the trust in faith in me to stick with me these last almost 3 years,
and to watch you rise not only as an athlete,
but as the wonderful soul you are,
love you, your coach Dawn Alison

“Everything we have created on this planet
was essentially first created in the mind.
All the work done by humans
both the wonderful things and the horrible things
first found expression in the mind,
then became manifested in the outside world. In the yogic tradition,
a well-established mind is referred to as a “Kalpavriksha” or a “wishing tree.”
If you organize your mind to a certain level,
it in turn organizes your whole system;
your body, emotions and energies get organized in that direction.
If this happens, you are a Kalpavriksha yourself.
Anything that you wish will happen.”
~Sadhguru

“I am thankful for friends who stand by me through the ups and downs of life.
My truest friends are those who know everything about me,
but love me just the same.
The words that escape a friend’s mouth are
“I’ll be there when you say you need me”
but the words that are unheard from a true friend’s heart are
“I’ll be there… whether you say you need me or not
LOYALTY

Success is the result of
perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence.
No student ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him/her:
it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required,
that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.

PIC: TEAM Fit Body’s INCOMPARABLE Christine Wallace​

CHRISTINE…came to me several weeks before her 1st show in 2012
when i helped her do Bikini and had to talk her all the way thru the show….
she’s one of the most loyal and hardworking clients i’ve ever had the pleasure to work with,
she’s a GREAT STUDENT, meaning SHE TRUSTS & LISTENS…
she trusts the process, and has the drive, heart, mind & guts
to go as far as she chooses to go

“With everything that has happened to you,
you can either feel sorry for yourself
or treat what has happened as a gift.
Everything is either an opportunity to grow
or an obstacle to keep you from growing.
You get to choose.”
“Learning is a gift.
Even when pain is your teacher.”
“No matter what the situation, remind yourself “
I have a choice.”
“You must make a decision that you are going to move on.
It wont happen automatically.
You will have to rise up and say,
‘I don’t care how hard this is,
I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”

Letting go is can be a painful yet necessary part of life.
And letting go can also result in feeling free.
Letting go helps us to to live in a more peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance.
It allows others to be responsible for themselves
and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us.
This frees us from unnecessary stress.
Let go of your attachment to being right,
and suddenly your mind is more open.
The mental and physical space we create by
letting go of things that belong in our past gives us…
the option to fill the space with something new.
AMEN !
