We had the good fortune of connecting with Larry Lewis Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Larry, what role has risk played in your life or career?
How do I think about risk? I feel it is absolutely necessary to do if you’re going to succeed at anything you desire. Whether you fail sometimes or not you will have opened the door of I can. I’ve found failure and risk go hand and hand with success. Let me clarify that; failure compels you to make essential modifications to accomplish the goal. Risk challenges you to confront yourself so much so that you are willing to gamble everything I mean everything because you believe in your product or service so much. I have always been a risk-taker I feel if someone else can do it I can too. It didn’t matter what it was I always felt I could do it but differently than anyone else.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Muscle Meditation is a mobil holistic personal exercise service we specialize in Reiki, active meditation and physical fitness both private and small groups.
In the beginning it wasn’t easy getting started only one client out of ten followed me when I decided to leave the gym and get my own studio. Boy was that humbling. talk about counting your chickens before they hatch. After about six months I came groveling back to the gym regrouped and within a year took the risk again. I overcame the challenges by not giving up on my passion I knew it was needed, I knew what I offered was unique and I knew everything will work out because I believed it with all heart and soul. I’ve learned to appreciate the failures as they are a option because without failure and risk how would you know what success is? I’ve learned to appreciate the accomplishments no matter how small. I’ve learned to be more patient and let things unfold as they will to not try to make things happen. What I want the world to know is you can live a happy, fun healthy life just be willing to show up everyday even if you fall keep getting up eventually you’ll fall less and fly more.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would definitely recommend visiting all the beaches on the San Diego coast Mission Beach, Moonlight Beach Oceanside Pier to name a few. Eating well that depends on personal taste. The number one place to go in San Diego is a taco shop it’s a well known tradition amongst us locals when we come back home from vacation the first place you go is the taco shop. I also recommend downtown San Diego it’s definitely the place to be with clubs, breweries, and entertainment for adults and families.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to shout out everyone who’s had had hand in Muscle Meditation. To be honest there are too many people to name and I will not leave anyone out. However I do want to thank Laura at Verticle Printing for helping me get over the hump and taking Muscle Meditation to the next level and for the referral enabling me to share my story on your platform.
