However the simple truth is… as boring as it sounds we all have the same 24 hours in a day, and our choices are never really about time, but instead about values.
Our choices are never really about time, but about VALUES!
What is most important to you?
As I considered deeply after posting about my schedule why I have always had the time for exercise – yes even when my bub was little – it’s because it’s important to me! Ever since I lost that 30kgs 11 years ago, I know that in order to be my best, I need to do some exercise 3 times a week. So as soon as I was able to, (and probably a bit too soon in retrospect) I was back out running, taking my little baby Ruby to the park with a TRX suspension trainer (they are fancy ropes), hanging it from a tree while she slept and doing a workout because I didn’t want to put her in a Creche yet and I wasn’t going to give up working out. Notice how I said that? I wasn’t going to GIVE IT UP.
I remember clearly making a pact with my husband when we married that he would always support my time to go to the gym and exercise, and I would always support him to go surfing. Getting out by yourself to exercise is critical not just for your physical health but most importantly your mental health. I know when I miss a workout for a week or so, my body gets achy and I become cranky, irritable, and short tempered. I am not fun to be around. I owe it to myself and those I love to be in my best state…. And that requires me to have 3 hours a week to exercise however I choose. It’s really not too much to ask!
I see so many women give up this commitment to themselves (or never make it in the first place) and then exhibit the same cranky, victim, short tempered mindset that a simple walk in the fresh air would fix! It becomes a downward spiral of awfulness!
It’s a catch 22 right? Because you’re cranky and bad tempered, you don’t allow or enlist anyone to help you, and you prioritize things like cleaning the house or washing over your own mental dirty washing.
Just yesterday I left the house like a complete BOMB had hit it, imagine cheerios on the floor, socks on the table. Clothes & toys everywhere. Laundry in piles. You get the picture…
Why? Because I felt a million times better, and instead of grumpily staying home and RESENTING the clean house, I just did it later that afternoon, super fast, with my favourite music on in a happy mood.
You will only “find” the time to exercise when you decide that it is a must.
Even if you’re really busy, have lots of kids and a growing business or a job it can be done if you value it enough. Obama exercises daily. If he can find the time, you can too.
The other important thing about exercise is that it makes you more productive at the rest of your life.
Guess what I’m doing while I write this post? Pumping it out on the spin bike at the gym. You’d never guess right! 12 minutes typing on my phone sitting up straight, and I’m done! Then I email it to my amazing VA, and edit and post it later today. Productivity! Imagine what you could get done if you were full of energy and pumping productivity?? Tell me below…
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
