Why isn’t everyone skinny and rich?

Why isn’t everyone skinny and rich?

If we all know that we should be eating healthy and that we should save more than we spend, why are the vast majority of people overweight and in debt?

The answer is deceptively simple: Knowledge is not enough, not by a long shot. Especially with things that involve temptation like food and money.

In my experience as a health coach knowledge is 10% of the equation, at most, and implementation, habit formation, and accountability are 90% of the equation.

Emotion and temptation will ALWAYS defeat reason and rationality, unless we develop a habit to counteract those tendencies. So, how do we overcome this situation?

One of the most effective ways to overcome this situation is to hire a coach. A coach is someone who holds you accountable to your goals, even when your motivation is waxing and waning.

The best financial advisors have their own financial advisors. Therapists have their own therapists.

I personally have my own health coach, and I don’t know of single CrossFit coach at CrossFit South Bend who programs workouts for him or herself. Why? Because “any lawyer who represents himself has a fool for a client”

We all have a tendency to short change our goals if we’re only accountable to ourselves. However, hiring a coach is one of the most effective ways to reach your goals.

If you’re truly serious about your goals, then you should hire a coach to help you. It will be the best money you ever spent, and you’ll definitely get closer to your goals way more effectively and efficiently than you would on your own.
