This topic just keeps on reoccurring so I needed to share it with you all!
About a year ago, the amazing John Hardy bought my attention to the fact that in the fitness industry we ask some really unhelpful questions…So as a trainer I needed to learn to ask better questions.
As a child we always asked questions, which seemed to annoy a lot of adults or result in the answer, “I don’t know” As we age, we can get into a habit of not questioning or not wanting to be rude… But questions are awesome when you ask better ones!
Every single day of our lives our mind is going through an internal dialogue, we have around 65,000 thoughts a day, 80% negative and 90 % the same as the day before! Can you remember any of yours?
We can be guilty of wasting time asking negative questions like, “Why can’t I lose weight?” “Why do I eat so much?”, “Why can’t I stop eating chocolate”
We are bombarded with images and marketing telling us that we need their products to be better. Why don’t I look like them, why don’t I have that car? Why is my hair not shiny like hers? You get the picture.
Comparison is the thief of happiness. And what I really want for you is simple, to be happier and healthier!
Once the question is out there we naturally find answers in our own minds. We ask questions and answer them all day long. Most of our answers are backing up the question, making it seem true!
“I can’t lose weight because I’m lazy, I have no will power, I’m big boned”… or “They wont pick me for the job because I’m not good enough, there will be someone better than me, I never get what I want”
So what I want to inspire you to do… What I beg you to do, What I wish and hope you will do is join me on the quest of asking better questions with me! Like anything it’s simply a new muscle that needs building up and making stronger. I found it really hard to being with, but with practice you will soon see an incredible difference!
So here are some questions for you to try…
Why am I good enough?
Why am I going to get inshape?
Why do I deserve health?
Why do all of my friends value me so much?
Why is my life incredible?
How can I look after myself better?
How can I make a few easy steps to reaching my goal?
What do I really want?
Once you are on a roll there will be no stopping you!
Then start questioning others too! In a kind, compassionate way of course!
We would love to hear from you so please let us know Why you freaking rock!!!
