Health and fitness is the ultimate driver to power you to excellence in whatever you want to do in life, and simply by committing to focusing your energy into your own body, you connect your mindset to one of success and abundance.
This was very much in evidence when we met the corporate executive turned celebrity wellness coach, Hollie Philippa, who told us how she turned her back on office life to embrace her own journey through fitness.
WHO: in your life inspires you?
My dad! He has been my mentor and always gives me great advice which allows me to learn, grow develop and create resilience.
I also love to follow people who inspire me on social media within the fitness field or even the mindset, motivational field. Charles Poliquin was another huge influential mentor in my life and his advice will always stay with me.
I am inspired by others but I also aim to inspire myself and become the greatest version of myself I can daily by showing up daily as the person I wish to be.
WHAT: does your absolute achievement look like?
Achievement to me looks like success, which in essence is happiness.
I am always striving and achieving to build my dreams and my business, which are always in my control, and take the steps daily to achieve this.
Reaching a high level of achievement daily within my career is about putting in the work and the sense of accomplishment if a client reaches their goals or if I see someone develop a healthier lifestyle, this brings me joy!
Personal achievement is close to my heart and the dream is to have a gorgeous little family, whilst running my coaching business alongside it.
WHEN: is the next opportunity to take another step in the right direction towards your success?
To build my YouTube channel, social media platforms, and to attend more fitness events where I get to meet like minded people and add value to more peoples lives through a wider audience.
I aim to take each opportunity daily that feels right for me based on my core values and I am always looking to build, grow and connect.
I’m a natural introvert away from my work so potentially working on this and being more open towards people also.
WHERE: you’ve visited that drives you to achieve your end goal?
I like to visit different types of fitness studios, classes etc and I love to learn from others, and I am always open to this. It inspires me and motivates me to be the best I can be.
Maybe potentially a little backwards, however, I recently got back from a trip to Los Angeles and I came home grateful to be home and realised how amazing my life is already here. I truly believe that home is a feeling not a place, and when I visit other countries I appreciate home even more so than before the trip. This drives me to build my business and work with my clients at home. I am a home bird for sure.
WHY: a memory of something you’ve done and WHY it pushes you to keep chasing after your dream?
Going for the corporate world madness and working a job that didn’t sit well with my core values to taking the risk and running my own business as a trainer.
I literally went and didn’t have a clue what to expect, after the club asked me to be a trainer, and I think I had enough to cover the first month’s rent, but after that eve thing just flowed to me. I was in a state of flow and that is truly when you know you are on the correct path – when life just flows and it feels right.
That resilience, work ethic and the risk I took here makes me realise that anything is possible and even writing this now (we need daily reminders) has encouraged me to keep going! Keep building! To keep achieving!
