When to Admit Defeat!

When to Admit Defeat…

It’s ironic that on April Fools day that I discuss defeat. One of my sayings is “Never Give Up!” Some interpret this statement as an admission of defeat if you do give up. Now let me get this straight – sometimes you do have to admit defeat on certain tactics or strategies that are not working. This has nothing to do with being defeated though and has everything to do with continuing the war with a different strategy. Admitting defeat to a single battle is more then Ok as it sometimes allows you to regroup and refocus your energies on the larger picture in life.

In 2008 I walked away from a losing battle where I lost everything in my life and watched my parents lose everything as well. In October of 2015, I had a very public breakup with my then business partners and I walked away from another losing battle. I again lost just about everything for the exception of the supportive eVOLV Family I had gained over the years.

This is the reason why the Phoenix is the eVOLV logo. It represents new beginnings even when the magical bird burns to ashes during certain points of its’ life. Its about getting back up even if you must start over and regrow.

I of all people have had to admit defeat numerous times, but the difference has been that I have never given up. I write these blogs so I can share my story and possibly spark something in you to help inspire you to take that next step to better yourself even if you are feeling “defeated.” If I can somehow relate to you my experiences and help show you that it is possible no matter where you are in your journey – I have made a difference today.

This is the beauty of what I do. I have been there and done that! I have lived through some of the most public and dramatic failures anyone can in life. I am a testament to resiliency. Don’t get me wrong – it sucked, and it sucked bad. Your path may as well in the beginning, but I know you can do it! I was able to come back using the vehicle of fitness as my path. Therefore, I do what I do!
