“Why NOT me?”
Right around this time last year I applied for the @bodybuildingcom spokesmodel search. One of the first things that I was asked upon sending in my video application, was “Why this year? What made you apply this year?” My response was rather simple. “Why not me?”
For years, I’ve watched others step out of their shell and GO for it. Why not me?
For years, I’ve watched others accomplish THEIR goals and chase THEIR dreams. Why not me?
This time last year I vowed to stop convincing myself NOT to go for things and instead started asking “why NOT me”? And while I COULD think of a long list of reasons NOT to go after what I want, I realized that that list was merely a reflection of my own confidence (or lack there of). One reason to go after something is better than 10 reasons not to.
Since then, I’ve worked hard to stop limiting myself based on my own self doubt. I stopped viewing other people’s journey with envy and started viewing my OWN with confidence. I stopped making excuses for why I couldn’t or shouldn’t do something and started making lists of why I SHOULD. I stopped fearing failure, knowing that failure promotes growth.
Sure your comfort zone is cozy and warm. But, nothing magical happens there. Ever. I don’t want to live an average life. But if I only ever view MYSELF as average, that’s exactly the life I’ll live.
So step out of your shell. Stop doubting yourself. Own who you are. Your squinty laughs, your crooked smiles, your goofy quirks. Just be you, unapologetically. And GO AFTER IT. Whatever it is. You have the power. Why NOT you?

Come taste it at breakfast - combined with our house-made goodies (pictured here: my personal favorite...the dried apricot and white chocolate scone. 😘). #themonkeytreehotel
