We all have a health dream that we would like to come true – successfully achieve our dream lifestyle and body image.
Every woman has a health and body image role model – someone they want to be and look like.
When I ask my personal training clients what they want to achieve, they often say: I want to look like you!
“Pause right there and let’s take this right back”, I would say.
“I didn’t ask you about Your Vision OF You.
I am asking what is Your Vision FOR You”.
If you aim to get as close to looking like someone else, you are setting yourself up to fail.
If you aim to create the best version OF YOU, you are on a mission to achieve it.
Basically, many women have a clarity of an image that is totally irrelevant and unauthentic to them and very often unachievable. Having this image in your head is a great start, but it doesn’t bring you any closer to your goal – Your Vision FOR You of a dream image of you – simply because you are carrying an image of someone else in your head.
Where to from here?
I encourage my health coaching clients to focus on these things:
– creating an image of their dream themselves WITHOUT having any distracting images of others
– having conversations with themselves about themselves WITHOUT having conversations with themselves about others
– learning how to FEEL health instead of seeing it as an image – especially an image of someone else.
With that said, what does health feel like to you?
