Need to get your friends, family members or office companions as motivated as you? Tough job, but walking the talk and living the life of wellness will draw more people into the movement than preaching. Take it from me, as a wellness and life coach, I have alienated as easily as I have motivated! The trick is to tap into someone’s strength and “invite” instead of nudge or push.
The biggest issue I find with people who are not taking care of themselves is energy, both physical and mental. Most are poisoning their bodies with the wrong food and that pollutes their mental process as well as their drive. With both aspects in disarray, it’s tough to reach that spiritual part of their persona that wants to do better. Working against their physical and mental states, you may only have the emotional and spiritual to work with.
When we walk tall and in control, look our personal best, hold a smile on our face throughout the day and keep going full of vim and vigor, we are sending a powerful message to everyone around us. Just standing in line at the grocery store in Pilate’s stance gets people interested in what I do. It doesn’t take much.
When we make our goal to help others be their best selves, we already set out the energy and intention to make it happen, so all we really have to do is help when we are asked. Being humble helps too! After all, if people think they need to be inordinately gifted to be healthy, they won’t even try.
