Episode Description

On the last episode of The Mickey Ellison Show, Mickey announced the joining up of forces with Beachbody Coach Michael Gowan and Tiffany Sweeley Ministries to change the world. This week the show will introduce you to Katy Ursta, One Fit Fighter. Imagine yourself as a mom of two young children and a Beachbody Coach training others how to be fit only to find out you have stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while on maternity leave. That’s Katy Ursta! What would you have done? What has Katy chosen to do? Meet Katy Ursta this week on the Mickey Ellison Show. She could have felt sorry for herself and given up, but she didn’t. Katy has turned this dreaded disease into a way to bless and help others. She IS changing the lives of other people with the help of Beachbody. Yes, the Beachbody that brought us P90X, Insanity, and T-25. “With what Katy has had to deal with, none of us have an excuse to quit. I can’t wait for my listeners to hear her story. We can change the world!” www.onefitfighter.com

Children are more wise than adults because they question everything, and as adults, we are often annoyed by those questions, especially the question “Why?” We adults become “set in our ways”, when in reality answering the question “why” may cause us to question what we believe. We would rather give the answer, “it just is,” because we are intellectually lazy and we really don’t know why. The question “why” is an important question because it requires critical thinking to answer. “Why” can back up our beliefs or “why” can break them down and cause us to realize that many of our thoughts are really not our own, rather they are thoughts of others that we have accepted as our own.

Here are some “why” questions for you to consider. Why do some churches ban dancing? David danced! Is a little inflation a good thing? Is our tax code over 70,000 pages long? Are there racists? No one is born that way! Never stop asking why! You never know what you might discover.

I was born in a small town in South Carolina with the dream of playing professional baseball. That dream died in 1993 when my career at Vanderbilt ended. I chased wealth through network marketing only to be $200k in debt after two years. In 1999 I became a financial planner, and a Certified Financial Planner in 2006. While in network marketing and financial planning I heard so many times that perception is reality and “Fake it till you make it,” and those clichés are lies! I had that gut feeling that something was wrong and never spoke up or acted, and in 2009, I found myself scared with one prayer, and that was to know the truth. In my search, I had to look in the mirror, and realized many of the gut feelings that I had about the industry were correct. My goal is to educate, and most of that education is simply common sense. For what it’s worth, I believe my experiences in life can help people, from failing in baseball, and reflecting on the excuses. From pretending to be someone I’m not to get rich in network marketing. From being scared to death because of debt. Pretending to be someone I wasn’t in the financial industry, and now helping people understand what they have in investments and what they are paying. Much of what society tries to sell us is a lie, and if we think for ourselves, search inside, question everything, we can find truth. Find the child inside of us that asks the question “Why?”
