We ain’t just whistling dixie…
CFP’s Mission/Vision Statement:
To provide Rochester Minnesota’s most effective health and fitness training.
A community that is healthy, strong and vital, who’se participants have the courage to live outside the generally accepted as “normal” belief that health, fitness and vitality must decline with age.”
The Whole Life Challenge
A challenge is a general term referring to things that are imbued with a sense of difficulty and victory.
“I don’t need to do the Whole Life Challenge I already eat paleo/primal/clean”
-How does this mindset help the community get better?
“I can’t win the challenge.”
-The challenge is about you doing better in your life and seeing how your choices affect your own outcomes. It is not about winning. But to me it is also more then that. Do I need to do the challenge? Not really. I eat really well, Jen is a super paleo chef and is hugely positive influence in my life. I have my pre-Jen lab(bad) work and my post-Jen lab work(really good). There really is no need for me to do this challenge. But I want to. I want to because I know others need to do it. I know how much it can help them get what they want out of life. I know the change it can bring. That is why I am doing it.
To our ancestors belonging to a tribe or family literally meant the difference between life or death. In many ways today it still carries huge value on and influence on our quality of life. Who you hang out with greatly affects your standard of living and your health.
Just as we all do better in a group during our work outs, the same thing can happen in other areas of our lives.
If you want to be a leader in a community you need to lead.
Consider the Whole life challenge. Not just for you, but for the other people in your life and at CFP. No one knows who may be swayed or be assisted by your commitment.
Are you just whistling Dixie?
