Who do you sometimes compare yourself to? Why is it that we can never just be happy with who we are and what we have? As a fitness instructor, I am constantly comparing myself to other instructors. It is both good and bad. If I want my classes to stay current, I see what other instructors are doing in their classes. This way, I can stay on trend and keep my classes fun and fresh. However, when I try to imitate another instructor because they are doing a "dance" that everyone loves...I often fall flat on my face.
In the six plus years that I have been an instructor, I have learned that it is okay to be me. In fact, it is better to be me than try to be someone else. I am not perfect but I am pretty damn good the way I am.
