Patty Zariello is one the the most disiplined and hardest working women I know. No surprise she earned her PRO card at the 2012 Team Universe show on July 8, 2012. I asked her to share with our readers what keeps her motivated. Read below for more
My family motivates me to live a healthy lifestyle. We have a history of health problems in my family including heart disease and diabetes, which can be avoided by taking better care of our bodies by eating right and exercising. It hurts to see loved ones suffer especially knowing that there is something they can do to help themselves. I want to be able to live life to the fullest, to be able to enjoy an active lifestyle with my kids for as long as I can, and to set an example for them. I’m also motivated by my awesome husband who always supports me.
As far as what motivates me to complete I would say that comes from within. There’s something inside of me that just pushes me to work harder. I love the feeling I get from setting a goal and going after it with all I got! I have a very competitive side of me that feeds off the challenge. The more impossible it seems the more I need to find a way to do it. I absolutely fell in love with this sport and I’m having so much fun. I truly just enjoy it so much that it doesn’t take much to motivate me. I just want to become better and better at it! I also want to help others. I enjoy giving support and encouraging others (especially other moms). It inspires ME even more when someone tells me that I inspired them or helped them in any way. To receive letters of thanks or being recognized by other women with the same dreams is an amazing feeling! I love the feeling of making someone else happy.
