How do you define success? If you read my first blog post, you know that I define it by much much more than just financial wealth (although that certainly has it's place too).
So this month, August, 2011 was my month to be successful. Prior to that I was in a rut - a deep rut. I wasn't working out regularly, I wasn't happy with where my business was going, I wasn't happy with how my marriage was going, I was worried, anxious, and depressed often by just about anything - the economy, politicians, the have's vs. the have not's, world disasters, war, foot fungus - you name it (ok, maybe not foot fungus - that's not something I've ever had to deal with thankfully).
Then on the weekend before August 15, I got to be re-acquainted with the reason that I work in health and fitness in the first place - the people. IDEA World offered me the opportunity to commune with the best and the brightest in my field as well as be recognized and revitalized by those very same fitness stars.
When I got home I made a mental commitment. Five things I wanted to change for at least 21 days (I heard somewhere that 21 days makes a habit, so I figured it was a good place to start).
