About David Sampson

I have been a personal trainer for over 9 years and I love to see people change and go from pain and discomforts to no pain. Fitness has changed and improved my life. I use to hate eating. I believed it was a waste of time (the time to cook, clean and eat) and the food always tasted awful. I wished there was a pill I could take that would give me all the nutrients I needed to survive. One day it really struck me when my husband asked me what I ate today, I couldn’t answer the question because I didn't know what I ate in the past 2 days, except for coffee and 2 muffins and I didn't have any hunger pains. This really scared me - the fact I could not eat for 2 days and not even know. To make a long story short,  I joined the gym and found that I was extremely hungry after working out. I studied nutrition through Precision Nutrition and started to learn how to cook (I stopped burning things) and the food tasted so much better.

Over the past 2 years I have been building my businesses and they were going no where which is incredibly frustrating. When I was working for someone else, I had never realized I had the following limiting beliefs; being cautious and very calculated, being stuck in my head and not being present with people, having the fear of failure and the fear of what people will think of me if I am not 100% correct all the time.

Over the past year I have been able to start conquering my limiting beliefs and have stepped out of my head (most of the time) and be with people where they are, truly listening for what would make a real difference for them. As a result I have been seeing a huge leader starting to grow from within me. This leader is going to make a huge difference in the world. I don’t know what that will be, and I am very open and humbled to be that person. I am very blest to have the opportunity to write for YourTango.
