Waiting – The Adversary of Success

I could tell you that success is something that you’re born with or is something that lands on you once you hit a certain age but, unfortunately, that isn’t true. Success is a series of little actions taken by you to get one step closer to what you want to achieve.

The thing is, these little actions are where we get all confused, and I don’t think there is a person on earth that hasn’t made this mistake, myself included.

Have you ever had a BHAG© – a Big Hairy Audacious Goal? Something so huge and amazing and thrilling that you got super excited about? You’ve got the goal in mind, and you’re pumped… then you wait. You don’t have the time right now. You don’t have the support right now. You don’t have the energy right now, but you’ll get on that really soon…

This is the trap. We’re so busy staring into the future looking at that big shiny goal that we’re ignoring the right now. Each day we do this, is a step not taken and a goal not achieved. There is a solution. Stop waiting. There is no perfect time, no perfect situation, there’s only you and the path to where you want to be. Nike had it right “Just do it”. Do something, do anything, make that call, google that thing, go to that training, it’s up to you.

You can’t do everything all at once but no matter what your goal is, know that you can do it, you just need to take the first step.

Trainer of the Month

The month of May celebrates many things, Star Wars, Youth Week, and most importantly Mother’s Day. What better way to celebrate the wonderful women in our lives than by saying a big thank you to an excellent Mother, Grand Mother and Bounce Trainer of almost two years, Kristine Zimmer.

From a young age, Kristine knew she wanted to lead a life of helping people – it’s like she was born to be a Bounce Trainer. She studied and practised nursing for many years, delivered First Aid, health and community programs, and taught swimming for more than 26 years, with her eldest daughter representing the Australian Swim Team (wow!).

Kristine has two kind and courageous sons and four beautiful shining daughters, who have given her and her husband of 42 years three adorable grandsons and says “Together they fill my heart with pride and it overflows daily with so much love for them, it is such a privilege to be their mother.”

The care and love she shows her friends and family flows straight into her programs and into the hearts of her participants. Thank you, Kristine, your life long passion for helping people from every walk of life is inspiring, and it is a privilege to have you be a part of our Bounce family.

Tip of the Month

“Try to view your biggest challenges as your greatest opportunities. By understanding what isn’t working, we are inadvertently being shown what does work – it’s all about perspective! ”
