Our mind responds best to stimuli that is simple, concrete, and immediate.

 

 

If that stimuli contains a strong enough purpose, we will take action.

 

 

Example 1: Weight loss
simple, concrete, immediate: change food intake, increase exercise, increase positive self-image practice (Meditate, affirmations), good snacks when hunger calls, willpower.

 

 


Example 2: improve my PTSD
simple, concrete, immediate: focus on awareness and letting go, affirmations everyday, meditation (mindfulness) practice (nothing simpler), aerobic exercise, constant vigilance of where my mind has wandered, a focus plan for panic attacks, resilience (willpower)

 

 

If you are a coach, personal trainer, or a therapist, inspiring clients to take action is the challenge.

 


Change does not happen without action.

 

 


Actions overcome words, thoughts and emotions.

 

 


What purpose is important enough for you to take action?
