Creation of MoJoTiVatioN®
MoJoTiVatioN® - Concept Creation
Summer 2010 I was in search of a new challenge. I had attempted to enter the New York City Marathon, but was not accepted through the lottery. So, I decided to totally change gears and pursue a sport that had intrigued me for years - Bodybuilding!
I signed on to train with an amazing Bodybuilding Team and entered my first competition September of 2010. Determined not to be "One and Done", I competed a second time that October. Surprisingly enough I ended up winning the Over All and as a result became qualified to compete at the National Level!
Takin' It to the Next Level
Sights set on National Level competition meant I had to take my training to the next level.
I had proven to myself and my team that I had the drive, dedication and determination to train hard, but I needed an extra "umph", so-to-speak, somethin' that would remind me EVERYDAY, that I was in "Trainin' Mode!".
I discovered three necklaces in my jewelry box, each of which had a silver charm - a cross, a navajo symbol and the barbell I had won back in October 2010.
Each symbol resonated strongly with me, but wearin' all three necklaces didn't showcase the symbols. So, I created one necklace that featured each symbol individually. (See picture)
Once I started wearin' my new necklace, people took notice. They would usually extend a compliment and / or ask me the significance. My response - "I'm trainin' for my next bodybuilding competition and this is my "Mojo Trainin' Necklace". You've got to have "Faith" (cross) and "The Fire Within" (navajo symbol) to build true inner "Strength" (barbell)."
