It’s a dirty little word that no one wants to talk about because it makes us feel weak and vulnerable.

Psychology Today describes fear as: “a vital response to physical and emotional danger — if we didn’t feel it, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate threats. But often we fear situations that are far from life-or-death, and thus hang back for no good reason.”

No one wants to feel vulnerable or weak in front of others. However, we often miss amazing opportunities because we let fear take over.

Opportunities to excel in our career, meet new people, or hit a PR at the gym.

As a Coach, we see it time and time again. 

Jane is attempting a new 1 RPM, she hits 155#, looks great, form is terrific.  Jane throws 175# on the bar and suddenly it feels a bit heavy. She goes for it – form is still terrific, but her mind starts telling her “this is your new 1 RPM.”

Did Jane fail?  No, at least not on her lift! She just let fear take over.

Is 175# really her 1RPM? Probably not!

What Jane, and many of us, needs to learn is that failing makes us stronger.  We cannot learn if we do not fail.

Getting uncomfortable, vulnerable, and failing is all part of the growth process. 

If you have kids, they NEED to see you fail, pick ourselves up, and keep going. Why?  Because that’s REAL LIFE. 

No one is going to have everything perfect.  Why teach others that when life gets a little hard…stop. Do we want our kids to take the easy road?

Do yourself a favor; don’t take the easy road in the gym.  Face your fear and get uncomfortable.

Failing is not the worst thing that can happen. Failing to GROW personally, professional, and physically is!

-Coach Sandy

    Hey Guys,

    Warning: From February 2024, all existing email autoresponders will become obsolete!

    In fact, if you want to send marketing emails, promotional emails, or any other sort of emails starting in February 2024, you’ll need to comply with Gmail’s and Yahoo’s draconic new directives.

    They require regular marketers like you and I to setup complex code on sending domains… and existing autoresponders like Aweber and GetResponse are not helping: they’re requesting you do all the work, and their training is filled with complex instructions and flowcharts…

    How would you like to send unlimited emails at the push of a button all with done-for-you DMARC, DKIM, SPF, custom IPs and dedicated SMTP sending servers?

    What I mean by all of that tech talk above, is that with ProfitMarc, we give you pre-set, pre-configured, DONE-FOR-YOU email sending addresses you can just load up and mail straight away.

    We don’t even have any “setup tutorials” like other autoresponders either, because guess what: we already did all the setup for you!

    All of our built-in sending addresses and servers are already pre-warmed with Gmail and Yahoo and they’re loving us: 99% inbox rate is the average!
