Julie Voris: Ask Me Anything

The format of this episode is a little different. Recently, I asked people in my collective community what they would like to hear on the podcast. I would like to share what I’ve learned to help shorten the learning curve for all of you! This is a conversation about using fear as a catalyst, following your spark and creating your own momentum. 

[0:50] A CONVERSATION WITH YOU AND ME  

The format of this episode is a little different than other episodes. Think of it as a conversation with you and me. I start out with telling a story from March 2020 when I went from being an empty nester to having a full house. I started getting up at 4:00am to do my morning routine. I recorded my journey and shared it with others on social media. These came to be known as “closet talks”, which has led to the podcast, and what’s now known as energize live. 

[03:47] WILL PEOPLE SHOW UP?

Every single time I go live, or teach, I always wonder if anyone is going to show up. But somehow, people show up, and I am so grateful for that. Interacting with my community lights me up, so I’m excited to include you in this conversation by responding to your questions and sharing what I have learned. 

[07:53] USING FEAR AS A CATALYST

The first topic I discuss is in response to a comment I got on Instagram recently. There is a trend I notice in the women I interact with, and that is fear. It is often when they are embarking on a new endeavor of some kind and I see it all the time, including in myself. But what if we chose a different path? What are we so afraid of!? What if we looked at fear as a catalyst for our goals, instead of a signal to step back. 

[15:54] CREATING SUCCESS AND THE SPARK WITHIN

I was asked to be a speaker on a team call at the beginning of January 2022 to kick off the new year. At the end of the call, I was asked a question, “what’s the difference between the people who create success and the people who don’t? Even when they have access to the same resources.” I answered that I think it’s a matter of belief. A spark within us tells us that we are made for more. 

[19:30] BEYOND THE CORNFIELD IN MY BACKYARD

I grew up in a tiny town in the Midwest, and while it was a great place to grow up, I knew that I would not stay there. Even when I attended college, I knew I wouldn’t stay there. I didn’t even know if I would stay in the state. Even though I wasn’t sure how, I knew I had the spark within me. If you feed that spark, it will start to grow. 

[23:27] TEACHING IN MY HOMETOWN

After graduating college, I taught high school English in my hometown. Doing so was a catalyst to me doing greater things. I kept tuning into that spark as I moved into different phases and opportunities in my life. It’s not that people who don’t create success aren’t capable of it, they just choose not to. If you’ve got that spark within you, it’s your job to fan that flame.   

[28:00] HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED

A member of my community reached out to me about feeling bogged down daily and struggling to find momentum. I tell a story in response to this question. When I was asked to be the first live speaker for team Beachbody, I was shocked and honored. The topic was “how do you stay motivated?” What I wonder is, how do people NOT stay motivated to get up and move towards their best life!? Time flies by in this life, and I am so propelled by wanting to do all the things that I want to do, and having the time to do so. 

[32:54] DREAM BIGGER

Stop waiting on momentum to fall down from the sky, you need a vision and a dream for your life that is so big, it sets you on fire and propels you out of bed in the morning. I think there is a misconception that momentum has to come first, I recommend just doing the thing. In the doing, you create momentum through action. You have the power to do so!!!
