Recently, our girl Sophie O'callaghan won the Oxygen Cover Girl challenge which is cray cray because when Sophie joined the SMP she had two goals.
To be on the cover of Oxygen
To become a WBFF Pro
Seems simple enough right?
Sophie set the goal and got it.
After all It happens all the time for the girls in The Sports Model Project.
SMP girls get features in Oxygen magazine
SMP girls win WBFF Pro cards
SMP girls compete at the world championships
SMP girls social media followings grow and so do their businesses.
Sophie was tested all the way up to the magic moment because she has competed in all three WBFF shows this year which is really tough physically and mentally!
In her first show she made the top 5
in her second show she placed 2nd and 3rd
and on Saturday's show she placed 4th.
So close all year, but Sophie still hadn't got what she wanted.
So that's Saturday night.
Sunday was the Sports Model Project photo shoot with Dallas Olsen.
Heaps of buzz, all of the SMP girls excited
getting hair and make up done
and shooting photos
and while Sophie was shooting they brought out her cover........
So What Can We Learn From That?
So although Sophie has just fallen short of Pro status one of her other goals came true. The deeper truth is that Sophie could have quit or dropped her bundle at anytime in the year.
She could have quit when she came second or third or fourth
which are actually all amazing results
but I see girls quit all the time when they don't get exactly what they want straight away.
Those women are robbing themselves of the victory that is right around the corner and in Sophie's case her great victory came the morning after a "defeat".
It's not just about fitness
because the way you do one thing is the way you do everything.
This is about winning the game of life.
So often you doubt
you quit when you don't get what you want and you don't see that the universe has just got you one hurdle closer to victory.
Sophie is an absolute gem of a client
she trains so hard
her response to every challenge has been to try harder
smile more and have an even better attitude.
That's why I love The Sports Model Project
I'm constantly inspired by the women in my team.
It makes me want to keep pushing myself as a coach and as a competitor.
It makes me want to push YOU as a person and as a competitor too.
We only accept women who are
ready to be held to a standard
and work super hard.
It's not for the faint hearted
It's just for women who want to be the best of the best.
