On Change and Familiar Stories

On Change and Familiar Stories

We all want to be healthy. Whether that is losing weight, gaining muscle, running longer, or whatever, most of us have some sort of health goal we would like to achieve. However, many of those goals are never accomplished. Year after year, so many resolutions are abandoned and our bodies become weaker, fatter, slower, etc.

The problem? In the words of my friend Adam Gilbert: lack of support and accountability + proven strategies and tactics.

There’s no one I know that understands better how hard it is to change and implement new habits, especially when it comes to health, than Adam Gilbert. I’ve known Adam for a years now, and it’s impressive to see the consistency of his message and the growth of his business. He truly lives and breathes his purpose every day and he makes you feel how much he cares for you when he’s helping you become a better, healthier self.

To see what I mean, here are some thoughts he just sent me over email:

  • Human beings find change to be extremely difficult. To leave without being instructed to leave is a risk.
  • People need a familiar story in their minds to guide them. We want to know what new story we’re stepping into before we exit the old one. We don’t want an exit if we don’t know exactly where it is going to take us, even – or perhaps especially – in an emergency.
  • Change requires loss. And the prospect of loss is far more powerful than potential gain. It’s difficult to imagine what a change will do to us.
  • We want to know what new story we’re stepping into before we exit the old one. We don’t want an exit if we don’t know exactly where it is going to take us, even in an emergency.
  • Discomfort is our compass. Whenever we have an opportunity to feel uncomfortable we want to take it. That lets us know we’re headed in the right direction. It lets us know we’re doing something different. It lets us know we’re changing.

If you are serious about getting the right help in order to achieve your body goals, I can’t recommend anyone better than Adam and the services he provides in “My Body Tutor”. I’ve had him as my own health coach, and no one helped me adopt new habits faster and better than him.
