therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort in love, any sharing in the Spirit, any sympathy, complete my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, being united an agreeing with each other. don’t do anything for selfish purposes, but with humility think of others as better than yourselves. instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others. Phillipians 2: 1-5.
this was the scripture read at church today.
i followed along in the bulletin.
i was struck by the last line…instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.
that line is my life right now. everyday.
i closed my eyes in the pew and let it sink in.
i am a mom, a wife and a Team Beachbody coach.
everyday i am watching out for what is better for my family and my friends.
that is what a parent, a spouse and a coach does.
i did not become a beachbody coach because i needed a discount on the products.
(i hadn’t even tried Shakeology. yet.)
i did not become a beachbody coach because i needed something else to do.
i did not become a beachbody coach because i needed the extra income.
i did not become a beachbody coach because i had researched the company and loved their mission.
i became a coach because i had been part of a challenge group on facebook.
a challenge group that helped those who participated reach their goal.
i helped someone reach their goal.
i helped motivate someone to a healthier way of life.
i became a coach because i liked, no, loved, seeing that person change their life.
i became a coach because i loved being part of someone else’s journey.
i became a coach because i have a gift for watching out for what is better for others.
i thank God for giving me the opportunity to do so. every day.
i have ideas.
i have knowledge.
i have plans.
i have programs.
i have love.
i have passion.
i have compassion.
i have what it takes to help others put their health as a priority.
“every one matters”. that’s team beachbody’s motto for the year.
it’s a perfect fit for what we do–remind folks that every one matters. including you.
if you need help and don’t know where to start. i am watching out for you. just ask.
