How do you create a great life?

How do you create a great life?

Hi There,

Chris Chouteau here with Custom Body Bootcamp!  Hope your week has gone well!

I want to give you something to think about today!

I went for a walk this morning down at the beach and I got to thinking “How do you create a great life?” and my answer I came up with was do what you love!

I am very fortunate and blessed to be able to have many things in my life that I love. I have a beautiful wife who I love dearly, I have a bootcamp studio where I help people positively change their lives by exercise and eating healthy. I am able to ride my bike and enjoy the outdoors.

I have all these things because I have worked hard and created them. I want to say that I am lucky but in reality I have worked my butt off and taken risk and they have paid off! I guess you could say I am lucky but the funny thing is the harder I work the luckier I get.

I have created all these things in my life and there is no reason why you can’t create the things you love in you life as well You just have to want them so bad that you will do whatever it takes to create them!

We all create our life as human beings and you create it by the choices you make. Of course, unfortunate and unexpected things happen but you are not a product of circumstance. You always have a choice to change your life and you can always find positive in every situation in some shape or form.

I put this list together to start your process to do what you Love…

 

  1. Write down the things you love to do and want to create in your life
  2. Then ask your self…what actions steps do I need to take to create these things in my life.
  3. Then make the decision and commit that you are going to create these things in you life
  4. Then Take Action and start creating

 

If there’s a will there’s a way.  Life is full of abundance and opportunity and it’s available to you and everyone.

Stay positive, work hard, and be patience,

 

Chris, owner Custom Body Bootcamp

Tell us why do you do what you do?

My parents have always taught me to be thankful for everything I have. So I’m always grateful. My parents have always given back since the beginning of time from what I can remember.This is my main reason, this is how I was raised. To give to others.

How did you first get involved in supporting the resident’s of Los Angeles Skid Row?
I got involved in community work through the running group that I started two years ago. I reached out to my own personal network to continue this work to benefit others.

What kind of support do you offer them?

We try to offer them the essentials like tooth brushes, tooth paste, deodorant, razor blades and then support them nutritionally with fresh fruit, vegetables and staple food products for health and nourishment. We offer them our respect and gratitude as well for giving us the gift of helping them.

What kind of donations do you look for and what would you like to acquire for them?

We are looking for basic toiletries for both men and women. Products that you need, they need. It is pretty simple. Small travel sizes are good for transporting and distribution. Plus always fresh fruit, vegetables and easy healthy snacks that can be eaten on the go or without preparation.

Have you worked with other charities?

Yes, I have also worked with youth groups under Shi-Chi Youth Empowerment Solutions.

Why do you think it is important for everyone to care about what happens to the people on Skid Row?

The people that are on skid row may look down but they are not out. They are people just like you and me that can use a helping hand. The greatest gift int he world is to tbe the hand that gives. We also respect that this is their home, so I think it is important for us all to remember and treat it as such- HOME.

Ask Yourself “Why” And Find Unlimited Energy

What’s your Why? Why are you inspired to get out of bed in the morning and go to work? Why do you work so hard?

Have you given much thought into these questions? Dig into this question, find the
deep reason within yourself that motivates you to be successful and work hard.
Find your Why!

This is something I always help my clients figure out? It a great source of energy
and can be used to overcome obstacles.

I thought long and hard about my Why and I will share them with you. My wife is
first Why on my list.  She is why I work so hard! We are also planning to start a family in the next couple years and I would like for her to be a stay at home mom. With this being said, supporting my wife and children on one income is my driving force to work so hard.  I would also like to be able to travel to see my family in Ohio and my wife’s family in El Salvador, with airfares become more expensive, I would like to have the liberty to get up and go when I want.

Another Why are my clients. They trust me and have given me the opportunity to work
with them to make a conscious effort to change their lives in a positive
way.  The things I teach them have help them become healthier and happier.  I
enjoy sitting and talking to my clients as we co-create their goals and healthy
living plans, not only does it enriches their health but also all areas of
their lives.

These are my main “Whys”. Whenever I find myself struggling to find the motivation to
get to work, I take a moment and think about my Whys and it always gives me
energy to get moving and get to work!

What are your Whys? I’ll give you an exercise to help you find them:Find a pen and paper and write down at least 20 of your “Whys”.  Once you get close to #20 you find who and what is important in your life.  Allow these reasons inspire you to get you back on track of your goal.

When you are having a tough day finding motivation, think about your “Whys” and
watch how it gets you moving!
