I am surrounded by some of the world’s best here in San Diego at Todd Durkin’s facility Fitness Quest 10. A mentorship program of twenty something people led by visionary trainer Todd Durkin, the energy and passion here is electrically contagious. The atmosphere of the Fitness Quest 10 studio is simply saturated with greatness. Todd’s facility is filled with a mix of MLB and NBA players working out, 80 year old clients rehabing dynamically, people high-fiving, and fellow mentorees sponging it up alongside me. My co-mentorees are brimming with innovative ideas, drive, passion, and a desire as strong as mine to change their world.
This is an environment of optimal fitness and exceptional standards that could be easily intimidating. Every client, every trainer, and every mentoree each with their own story of excellence.
It’s easy to compare ourselves to others. We compare bodies, paychecks, dreams, and even life paths. What is essential to remember is that no one person has the same journey to walk in life. No one way is the right way to do something. As I was surrounded by greatness yesterday during the first day of the mentorship, looking around in awe of the impact each person at Fitness Quest 10 was committed to, I realized that every single person SHINES loudest when they are true to their core self and core values.
Commit to being originally and authentically you, because it is when you do that you start leaving a legacy.
