We had the good fortune of connecting with Iassac J and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Iassac, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
My career in fitness/ personal coaching has been great and rewarding. The habits that I have applied early in my career I believe are the ones that keep me going. Number one is to keep learning and reading a wide range of topics. I have a lot of interest and threw these interest I have always been able to connect with al types of people in conversation. I approach everyone with a non judgmental attitude because I am interested in there story can find common talking points Number 2 is waking up early to self care. I am up 4am or 5am just depending on when I go to bed, I started with meditation and some type of positive info audio/ book/ journal of gratitude . This has me in the perfect flow state when interacting with clients to give out amazing energy. Number 3 is education in my field is key. I have 20 plus certifications and I am always looking for more. Practice and the hunger to learn what you don’t know shows up in your work no matter what you do. Complement others work is number 4 and I believe one of my top traits. I love to see people succeed and enjoy what other people think is cool. I tell people my thoughts not to get anything from them because usually just keep moving but, I believe this just puts out good energy that keeps everything in motion.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My back ground started off challenging while growing up in a very rough time. That background shape my belief that if you work hard you can get some different from where you started. My career started coaching kids and then teach and designing fitness programs for schools. This helped to shape my belief of giving everyone a chance to grow. We are human and that in itself is complicated and I believe my genuine compassion is my super power. It was a challenge to over come this background mentally but, I want people to know that you can change you future self with work and baby steps. One of my mentor Homer Post would always say inch by life is a cinch and yard by yard life is hard. My brand is about digging into life changing habits and letting the habits do the work.
