Welcome to part 2 of IDEA WORLD Blogfest Highlights 🙂 Today I’m sharing the inspiration I received from the amazing Heidi Powell.
A little about Heidi: Heidi Powell is the ultimate female force. She is a trainer, transformation specialist, devoted wife, mother of four, savvy businesswoman, author, nutrition nut, and overall health guru. Heidi became a fixture in America’s living room as she worked side-by-side husband Chris Powell on ABC’s hit show, “Extreme Weight Loss.” (yes I just copied this info. from her website) Read more about Heidi here 🙂
Here are some of my favorites:
They don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care
Would you rather work with someone who knows everything or someone who cares about you? I have always got caught with “I need to know more” mindset; I can’t start sharing or blogging about wellness/fitness until I have read this many books or have this many certifications. Although education is very important in this field, caring is more important. Hearing Heidi talk about this was a reminder to myself to focus of my passion of helping people instead of waiting until I “know it all”
Comparison is the thief of Joy
When is the last time you compared yourself to someone? In person or online. I can’t tell you how many times I have. It’s so easy to fall into that trap of comparison. But not at the expense of our joy.
Why are we so afraid of failure? Take risks, do things you might not be the best at. Comfort is the thief of progress. Yes, Heidi, yes!
And now the best one of all:
BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU
This one really shouted out loud to me because I struggle with it most. Just be yourself. That should be easy. Well, it is if you’re not worried about what others are thinking. Sometimes I think people do not know the real me because I don’t let them see who I really am in fear of disapproval. Why do I allow that to hold me back? BE YOU!!!
Here’s to being unapologetically me. Flaws and all. Thank you Heidi. 🙂
