Good Morning from sunny Cancun, Mexico! The Coach Jimmy here and yea it’s morning, checking it out – you like the glasses and bed head? Just sitting here on my balcony, would you like to look at my view with me here for a moment? Looking at the ocean here and it’s pretty ridiculous. And you know there’s times in life when you really just step back and you go, “Wow let me just realize that this is my world and know that my world was drastically different just a few short years ago.”

I mean think about just maybe 5-7 years back in your life and think of where you were and think how that really doesn’t seem that long ago and how much things have changed. I go from living in New York City as a broke, out of work actor that couldn’t get casted in things, that was really questioning things – was I talented enough? Was I good enough to pursue my dreams?
Stressed because I was always out of money, drowning in debt of multiple credit cards, in a newer marriage that frankly I wasn’t bringing any income too and you know that takes a toll on a guy’s ego or anybody’s ego when you feel like you’re not contributing to your marriage to sitting here on a balcony in Cancun on a free vacation that was gifted to me by the people at Beachbody just because I decided to take action on my health and fitness and was willing to say, “Hey I’m going on this journey, I’m tired of excuses, I’m tired of blaming other people on why I’m not where I am, so I’m gonna take control of what I can take control of right now.”
“Hey I’m going on this journey, I’m tired of excuses, I’m tired of blaming other people on why I’m not where I am, so I’m gonna take control of what I can take control of right now.” – Coach Jimmy
For me that was my physical health and not waiting until I was an “after photo,” not waiting until I was the perfect weight or whatever because all of that is bullshit anyway. But just saying, “Hey, I’m gonna take this journey and encourage people to come along with me on the ride.” And we’re gonna have out ups and downs, but it’s gonna be such a cooler trip because we’re in this thing together and really just making that one decision and saying, “Look this is my new lifestyle and it’s not perfect, but I’m gonna team up with some people” has landed me in places where I’ve run out of counting of how many free vacations Beachbody has sent us on! It’s pretty amazing! You may be watching this video and your like, “Yea Jimmy that’s for you, but I can’t because __________ “and fill in your own blank there.
That blank really at the end of the day it’s just a story that you’ve just sold yourself. I always find it so funny, that people are like, “I can’t be a Beachbody coach ’cause I’m not all that into sales.” But, you know what? You’ve been selling yourself all of your life on why you can’t do this, why you’re stuck where you are, why whatever. I mean you sell yourself every day and whatever you sell yourself or whatever story you buy, is a reflection of where you are today.

Now, let’s look at this; whatever the big goal is – if it’s getting free vacations in Cancun, if it’s loosing 100lbs, the big goal seems unattainable right now because you’re like, “Jimmy you don’t understand my situation” and maybe I don’t but I know mine was pretty dissolute and I know that many people on my team have crazy stories that were even harder than mine, from people being homeless that were on my team to people with huge amounts of weight to lose to medical issues to whatever. And they all made the same decision not to jump to the top of the mountain, but to get started – to just get started and just to say, “Yep I don’t exactly understand how everything you guys do works, but obviously it works and obviously it’s something I want.”

You’ve probably heard it before, but to get something different in life, you’ve gotta do something different! So I just wanted to take a moment of reflection while everybody’s down working out with Shaun T, Tony, and Autumn and I kinda just thought, “You know, I’m just gonna chill this morning” and reflect and kinda take a day to soak this all in and be grateful to share with you that it was possible for this three time college drop-out that was 100lbs overweight to change his life and its possible for you too. The good news is, I wanna teach you how to do that. So if you’re interested, just check out the link. Take care!!
