great info!

This was very motivational and encouraging for me! There may have been some things we've all heard before, but that's true for most encouragement. What's tried and true will always be tried and true, but it was the way this was worded that really struck my core spirit and sparked that inner fire that we need to drive us. These words are a great intro to my journey to positively influence and help as many people as possible! Thank you! ... and the beginning quote was perfect!

This is very encouraging. Well written and something I can always remember to help me focus on my daily life.

Well written! Something to ponder about, not just for ourselves but the ability to use it well for our clients. Empowering them to reach for their goals with a firmer and clearer mind..

This was definitely one of the best I've read in a while! Thanks

Maureen seems a bit lost to me. Kind and generous reply Bobby. I remember when you came on with NASM and they had you do the first talk, I think it was IHRSA in Las Vegas. At least that was the first time I personally saw you. I was blown away. So Maureen, for those of us that have been around for a long long time, and have benefited from Bobby's work, I was a bit offended in the manner of your remarks. I'm an agnostic but I can't believe you took even a moment to be offended.

Hey Maureen. I appreciate the feedback on this. With regards to "God" this was not intended to make an assumption on anyones beliefs. It was not the message I was meaning to convey.

I simply thought that Williamson's quote was relevant in the context that passion and self-expectancy are in fact prerequisites for the continual development of the skills required to continually expand our circle of influence. The skills to guide a client to his or her own conclusions by examining his/her own motives, using his/her inner resources to identify an appropriate solution to whatever impedes the realization of his/her fitness goals.

This article was intended to discuss some of the intrinsic factors that either support or conflict with our clients ability to achieve their fitness goals. i make no assumptions in either way about religious belief or affiliation.

At the time I wrote this i didn't feel comfortable with editing the authors words as I thought the message of self-expression superseded any theological over-tones. I didn't mean for it to be in any way insensitive or even reflective of my own personal beliefs in that regard. You do have a point and in retrospect I might have in fact taken that into consideration a bit more in the opening.

I also understand that there are a few catch phrases in here. I wrote it like that because they are quite easy to remember and I thought they may serve as anchors.

Again I appreciate you taking the time to write a response as it gives me space for pause.

The one thing I am confused about is if one is a "free thinking" how can the ideas of another person alienate or appease? They are just ideas and if we exercise independent thought then whether we agree or disagree they can still be a source of exploration, even provocation. In the end our acceptance of them is not required.

But to feel alienated would mean you have an attachment to an ideology that is extraneous to the content. So if there is a pre-existing attachment to an idea powerful enough to make you feel alienated based on your interpretation of the authors intent, is that not the antithesis of free thought?

Spagnolo, Maureen | 07 Feb 2012, 01:51 AM

Perhaps I've just read too many of these kind of messages. It has all the catch-words, and is trying so hard to inspire.
Caroline Myss is one of the New Age messengers whose message is not for all of us. I, for one, do not believe that there is a God who has created us for a purpose. I resent the fact that the author assumes we are all in his same boat.
The article alienates free-thinkers at the get-go.
