THIS I BELIEVE by Sydney Baska
All my life I wanted to help people. First I wanted to become a cop, then I wanted to become a vet, then I wanted to become an FBI agent. Now I believe that becoming a BeachBody coach fulfills my dream of helping others. A BeachBody coach helps people reach their physical and financial goals. Growing up watching my mom living the life of a coach really inspired me. My whole perspective changed when I attended a BeachBody coaching event with my mom. We went to SuperSaturday, which is a meeting held for BeachBody coaches all across America. Listening to all the inspirational stories really made me want to get involved in this amazing community.
I remember the big story that influenced me. It spotlighted a mother of two who was really struggling financially. She had filed for bankruptcy and faced losing everything. Along with all the stress, she had gained a lot of weight. Just when she had reached her breaking point, she found BeachBody. She signed up as a coach, started feeling great as she lost the weight and took care of her body, and she found a community of very supportive people. And on top of all of this, she started earning money as she began helping other people do the same thing. She got out of bankruptcy and could finally support her family. After hearing this story I knew I wanted to help people.
I believe God puts us on this Earth for a reason. I want to help people reach their goals, both physical and financial. I want someone to look at me and say, “Because of you I didn’t give up.” What would be better than that? Along this journey of learning about BeachBody coaching, I stepped back and looked at my life. I realized I had to stop judging others and become a more caring person. Also I learned how to care for my own body by giving it proper nutrients, exercise and rest. Without BeachBody I wouldn’t have become the person I am now, which sounds weird since I am still in high school. But it really is true. Also I have become really close with my mom. We have this kind of strange bond that a normal teenager and their mom would not have. We would rather go run, do a Rugged Maniac or a Shaun T workout than go shopping.
So it’s strange how things come into your life that can completely change it. I have watched my mom workout and live a healthy lifestyle for many years; however, I had to find myself in the right place at the right time in my life before I opened my eyes and saw what lied in front of me. I believe that I can make a difference in this world – by helping one person at a time find their fitness. I believe that we all bring something special to the world. Becoming a Beachbody coach will become my special gift to the world.
This I believe.
PS – Her mom is super proud!!
