Today is the fourth day of our Fit It Forward challenge! This week, we’re working on your happy. (And the world’s!)

Fit It Forward Challenge #4: Find The Genius.

It’s easy to look at what “we don’t have” or “what we lack”, at least it is for me. The things we are good at may seem trivial to us. To be completely honest, it’s hard for me even now to think of what I’m good at.

I know one of the things my gife (part girlfriend/mostly wife), Dayna, is good at. She’s amazing at making sure my daughter and I always have everything we need. No matter where we go or what we do, all of our things are packed, we are always prepared, she always has our tickets ready and a bit of itinerary if needed. She excels at taking care of us.

I know watching our new coaches show up day after day excited to coach and do their job very well is genius. I know our veteran coaches showing up day after day STILL excited to coach and do their job very, VERY well is also genius.

I know watching Cathy Olivetti running “without stopping” for the first time in a workout just last week and seeing Ben Kozik “touch his toes for the first time in years” is genius as well.

Genius in ourselves and others is very easy to take for granted. Especially when life gets so busy.

My friend Chris Cooper (where we got the idea for Fit It Forward), says, “The quiet uncovering of genius is a crime. If you see something, say something.” I believe he’s one hundred percent right.
