Today I was talking to client about achieving her health goal of her perfect weight. I knew that with my coaching she can get there in just a few months, but in the beginning she had her doubts. Then I asked her a question that shed the light onto the dilemma -- "What is holding you back?"
When it comes down to it, it is all about facing what's in your way and figuring out how to get what you want. And I will admit that the answers that come up may sound intimidating to the person saying them. However, if you look at it from the shopping perspective, you may be surprised how easy it can be to get what you want.
Think about the Apple IPad. I know people who have stood in line since 7 am to get one of those. Did they hate their lives and feel miserable? Not at all. They all voluntarily got up at the crack of dawn and got to the store in order to buy this new toy. And examples don't have to be that extreme. Think about walking around your favorite store and spotting an outfit you liked, just to find out that there was a line to the fitting room and then to the register. Did that stop you from getting the clothes? If you wanted them enough, then probably not.
Look at vibrant health, perfect weight and high energy the same way -- as something you want to achieve. So, you may need to make some adjustments to your life, but they don't have to be extreme. With the right coaching and support, they will be just like "standing in line" to get it.
I know you are worth having the body you want. All you need is to decide whether you are willing to "stand in that line." And if you see that you don't want it that bad, then hey, life just got even easier -- you have one less thing on your to-do list.
I hope this makes you think about your true wants and helps you prioritize your life accordingly. Because I know that there is nothing that can hold you back, if you truly want something.
One of the biggest challenges my clients face when they start working with me is discovering that deep inside them there is a voice that sabotages their successes. Somewhere deep inside there is a voice that keeps telling them that they are not good enough… Continue reading here.
One of my favorite Disney movies is Beauty and the Beast. Little girls from an early age are taught to look through the looks and love people for who they are. I think we all consciously try to do that. Except for one person. In my line of work I often see women who can't fall in love with themselves. Continue reading here.
