I read one of the most amazing quotes the other day: "People spend their lives in the service of their passions instead of employing their passions in the service of their lives," said Sir Richard Steele. The realization that I've been one of those people described in the first half of the sentence rather than the second almost made me choke. And if you're working 10-hour days and going home exhausted, you too may have a hard time swallowing such a statement.

Begin to plant the seeds of what life would be like if your passion for fitness and personal training served you rather than you serving it. How would your life be different? Where would you work? What would you do? How much would you make? How much free time would you have? Intriguing questions, for sure!
