Coaches Corner…with Coach Ali

My Prescription To You

One night last year while I was coaching, a member of my class told me that she wishes she could bottle up my positive energy and sell it. That comment kind of stuck with me. Others have asked me “Ali, how is it that you are always smiling?”. First off, I believe that positive energy feeds off of positive energy, and great things can come out of it. Being happy, silly and dancing around for no reason is catchy, right? Smiling. I smile because I am happy. I am happy because I love my job and I love everyone who I am surround by on a daily basis. Smiling is so easy and it goes a long way. One smile can brighten someone’s whole day. How cool is that? You know what I love? When you walk by a complete stranger and they smile at you for no reason at all. Pretty cool. While a lot of people think im crazy for leaving a nursing career behind to go work at a “gym”, it was the best decision I have ever made. I feel so lucky to have a job that doesn’t even feel like work. To never wake up and dread going to work. To never be at work and count the hours left on the clock until its time to go. Sometimes I forget that I even get paid to do what I do. If I won the lottery tomorrow and didn’t have to work, I would still be working at CFNE. Life is way too short to be spending time doing what you don’t love doing, or missing out on great things in life because work is miserable and too consuming. Helping people better themselves is one of the best feelings in the world. Making people happy is addicting. One of my favorite things to do is if you are thinking something nice in your head about someone then make sure to tell them!  How good does it feel when someone pays you a compliment? CrossFit has dramatically changed my life, and my perspective on life and I want that for everyone else. How fun is it to work on yourself as a person? To be a better person, to do the right thing, to treat people right and to surround yourself with great people.  There is something that I want to share with you guys that I read to myself every day. Something I try to live by. So here is my “prescription” to you…

Promise Yourself…

 To be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time towards improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
