As a member of Toastmasters International, I just THOUGHT I had heard great motivational speakers. You, by far are the best I have had the pleasure of hearing.
You spoke long and loud to my heart today. I have just recently started Medifast (05-11-11) and become a HC (6-13-11) and was so scared to step out of my comfort zone. I wanted to make this work but wasn't sure if I had what it took to be successful. I knew Medifast was an incredible product because I have gotten rid of 34 lbs in 10 weeks. I knew the program was great, because I have been following it and have had success. I just wasn't sure if I had what it takes to make this WORK.
You made me face my biggest barrier (insecurity in my ability to help others and therefore not be successful) and made me believe that I could breakthrough that barrier. I was lucky enough to have a newly found friend video tape me breaking the board. It is funny, with the 1,000 (?) people in the room, all of the clapping and encouraging people all over, and when I was looking into the eyes of that coach.... I heard nothing. I told myself if I could break that board, I could do anything! I focused on the rewards of breaking through and I accomplished it, as I broke the board the first time! I vaguely remember hitting the board. . I wasn't scared I WOULDN'T break the board because you told me I could. I believed you and I did it.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart, for today. It is a day I will never forget.
God bless you and your incredible family!
You achieving Optimal Health - your personal best health status - is my goal!
