If you have been watching the NBC Show Titans you will have been introduced to a former Driven Coach Kara Lazauskas! Kara is an awesome person with a great heart, a lot of energy, and brings it everywhere she goes!
So when we found out that she was going to be on the show I don’t think anyone who knew her was really surprised. A badass female with tats, muscles, who’s also a science nerd, with a great story and a great smile. NBC was like, “yes, please!”
Yet, there is something we can all learn from this show, these contestants and what it takes to live a life of meaning, achievement and become “Titans.”
We watch this super cool show captivated by the stories of strangers who we do not even know, except in our case we do, and we say things online and in person about Kara and the Titans about how inspiring they are and ask questions like “how do you do that” or “I wish I could,” or “I could never..”
America gets moved and touched because we see what they are doing and think to ourselves, “man, what makes them so special?” “Do I have what it takes?”
You may not vocalize it or want to admit it..and that’s okay. Because that’s the irony.
It’s a game show of people telling their story and being called “Titans” when they win.
But what about the lives we have been given for ourselves? What about the challenges we have overcome? What about the gifts we have been given? These contestants are not blessed with perfection,
So what about you? Do you see yourself as the Titan you really are?
What about raising a great family that is healthy, strong and confident? That sounds pretty heroic.
What about overcoming your obstacles when it comes to food and weight loss so that you prove to yourself that YOU can do it? Sounds pretty heroic.
What about being the most thoughtful, loving, present version of yourself? When no one is watching, how do you show up to those closest to you? Pretty heroic.
What about being honest with your health and your future? Achieving and sustaining a goal you set out to achieve is pretty damn heroic.
It is why America gets captivated by others. They are IN THE ARENA.
But so are you and you don’t need NBC cameras to live a life of impact, joy,
I have a three-year-old daughter and yes, I’d love for Sierra to watch the show and see someone like Kara fighting and think it’s awesome to be fit and healthy. But to be honest, I’m more interested in empowering her to love her muscles because they are her muscles. To fight for her goals because they are her goals and to empower her to get up when she falls…because she WILL FALL.
You know what? I’d bet Kara and the Titans would agree with me.
Sierra can’t learn that from a show. But she can learn it through the example of those closest to her and the way in which she lives her life. That’s why motivation is fleeting….drive however, something that runs way deeper than a thrill is everlasting.
So, how about you?
I see a lot of people that walk through our doors that are their own Titans. That have their own arena to fight in and can find their own joy and discovery in this journey of life, lifting and health.
Many have made such tremendous strides… I wonder do they feel proud of themselves every damn day?
Many are just starting their journey and are filled with self-doubt and self-sabotage? I wonder do they realize they are more than enough?
Many feel stuck when they start, unable to advance or retreat, because of the what ifs… I wonder do they realize they have nothing to lose as their family and our Driven Family will still think they are awesome..and maybe even more awesome, regardless of where they start?
Many are eager to find another gear, another level… I wonder if they realize what they are capable of.
You do not need a T.V. to tell
As they say in the show, Titan’s aren’t born, they are made.
