What Drives Your Life?

I am slowly but surely re-reading "The Purpose Driven Life." Last night I was reading the chapter titled, What Drives Your Life? The author listed quite a few reasons and then began listing the benefits of purpose driven living.

Benefit 1: Knowing your purpose gives meaning to your life
Benefit 2: Knowing your purpose simplifies your life
Benefit 3: Knowing your purpose focuses your life
Benefit 4: Knowing your purpose motivates your life

I am learning more and more each day that "without a purpose, life is motion without meaning, activity without direction, and events without reason. Without a purpose, life is trivial, petty, and pointless."

I know I am at CrossFit Central for a reason and feel blessed beyond measure to have the opportunity to work with this community. I finally have the opportunity to pursue my degree in an element that allows me to be me (aka: a showout), as well as truly have an influence. Each day I am encouraged to see the improvements happening in each one of my athlete's lives. I know my purpose is to positively impact, encourage, and challenge individuals each day--whether it be physically, mentally, emotionally, nutritionally, socially. I am here to listen, learn, and teach. It is encouraging to be reminded of what drives my life, and why I am doing what I am doing daily.

What drives your life?

Sprint to FGB status: ran 8x100m sprints with 30 sec rest. 3 miles down, 7 to go...


  1. Ironically I was thinking this morning after class that you are having a significant impact on my life! (in just short time too) Your knowledge, energy, confidence and spirit are contagious! I feel mentally and physically stronger...and I want more!
    ShowOut Miss Megan and thank you for doing what you are doing!

  2. And THANK YOU so much for the encouragement!! You are a joy to coach, and I am beyond excited to see where your CrossFit journey will take you. Keep up the hard work!
