The greatest gift you can give someone is not to give him or her anything. When you give people things you take away their power. That is the opposite of what you should do. The greatest gift you can ever give someone is to EMPOWER him or her. To empower is to give power. This is huge.
So often you see people looking for an answer. So often you see people giving them that answer and thus depriving them of their right to fight for the answer and grow from the process.
There is a common perception that a butterfly needs to fight it’s way out the the cocoon. The process, THE FIGHT, builds strength and character. The strength of the first flight is built as they tear apart their temporary prison. It is a beautiful thing.
What if we help the butterfly? In a very literal sense we then sign the butterfly’s death certificate.
Why do we think that humans are so different?
Health and fitness is as prime example as you are going to find.
People decide to be healthy and it is our natural instinct to look for the easiest and fastest way to get there. Truth is that, like the butterfly, you need to build strength, stamina. endurance and character along the way so that you can maintain that weight loss or that new found muscle.
Staying healthy is a lot of work.
If you don’t fight to get there then you don’t see the value in what you have. This is part of the reason that most people that lose weight gain it right back. If you take the easy way you are under the false impression that it will be easy to keep off. WRONG.
Did you know that most lottery winners end up filing for bankruptcy?
Why? These people did nothing to deserve this money. It has no value.
This is the big reason that fad diets don’t work. Heck, it’s the main reason that people that get healthy very often don’t stay healthy. If it’s easy it’s not worth it.
I love the word empower. It literally means “to give power or authority to”. Awesome.
I love to empower people to get healthy. In other words: ‘here’s why you need to do it and here’s how you do it. Go….”
I absolutely REFUSE to hold people’s hand, sugar coat the process, or give them an easy way reach their goals. I REFUSE.
I’m sure that if I changed my methods a little bit then I would get more people to “get fit”. But will they stay fit? Probably not.
I believe in empowering people. I believe in CREATING AN ENVIRONMENT where people are empowered to succeed. In other words, if you raise your hand I will call on you. If you sit and the back and hem and haw and squirm and make excuses then I don’t have time for you.
Does that make sense? I’m not trying to be crass but, gosh, enough is enough people. There are no short cuts. You have to work your ass off if you want to be fit. You have to make investments in yourself. It’s going to take time, it’s going to take effort and it’s going to take money.
Your trainer isn’t going to do it for you. Nobody can make all your decisions or change your mindset. YOU have to take care of that. We can empower you but the rest is up to you.
