Why: do you want to ..... (fill in the blank)?
Clients come to me saying "I need to workout!" "I gotta lose weight."
So I ask them "why?" If I'm going to work with you, and you know going deeper, why what your reasons are for coming to me to help you excel and transform mentally and physically, your chances of succeeding are far higher than a generalized answer.
When you know, you'll now have laser focus, a clearer head and then - you'll see yourself transform.
Your reasons might be:
- Life events piled up on you so you're busy catching up
- Depression whether it's low or high grade
- You're a people pleaser, and realize now, you need help
- You feel like shit and your running out of steam
- The Dr. is hinting that your health could be better
- Fear of falling behind
- Relationship stress
- Anxiety and feeling overworked
Here is a brief back story of my personal "why."
Years ago, I went through quite an ordeal at a.low grade Community Center where I worked. I was trying to keep my head up and push through, working hard to prove my worth while they abruptly laid off me as well as three others. I had spent countless hours working extremely hard, yet was also trying to cope with emotional abuse and harassment.
I suffered from depression/anxiety, anger and absolute fear of walking into another situation if I applied for another job.
It took me a very long time to recover and, people get laid off regularly, but in my case it wasn't just a"lay off." with all that I had tried to push down so I could keep going, It was later realized that I have PTSD.and that is the reason why I could not just "move on!" as those of whom I realized, wheren't understanding."
My Father was also ill and frankly, I lost my passion...
But after a routine Dr.s visit when she told me my blood pressure was high and would give me one month to see if I could make some changes, THAT was my wake up call..
I didn't want to be put on medication..
So I pulled myself out of my funk and made the necessary changes I needed to do for my health and wellness.
I've got my passion back.. and I'm not letting it go..!
