Get clear about the goal you are working TOWARDS, that is, who you want to become, and how you want to feel instead of what you want to lose. Imagine a moment of future success, so instead of saying “I want to lose 10 kgs”, which just makes you feel fat and like a failure, imagine the moment when you can look in the mirror and be totally happy, and love what you see, your body feels healthy, and energetic. This positive goal is one that is much more achievable and less focussed on the scales and more on health and feeling good.
Often when you’re dieting all you can think about is the restriction and deprivation. So you need to build up positive links with becoming slimmer so your mind wants to achieve it. Write a list of as many ways that becoming slimmer will help you in all the other areas of your life. How will it make you a better, happier mum? How will it make you more energetic and productive in your work? How will it stoke the fire of your romance?
Sometimes you also need a kick up the butt to face the consequences and pain of staying the same or getting worse. Get real with yourself about what it’s costing you to be unhappy in your body. Write down all the ways that it is stopping you from living your potential for happiness and fulfilment? And then what are the likely consequences if you don’t make a change NOW.
Dieting does not work. You know it. I know it. So stop doing it. It will not ever create lasting weight loss. Dieting only makes you feel bad and messes up your metabolism, leaving you fatter in the long run. Instead of dieting, focus on ONE habit that will move you towards your slim self. Focus completely on just one habit that will make you healthier. Maybe it could be getting up at 6am, which means that you can go to the gym before work, or it could be as simple as including a green vegetable with every main meal, or drinking a glass of water before you drink any sodas. Latest research shows that habit swapping one by one, is the secret to creating lasting change. It’s easy and feels good. Join my free One Habit Challenge Facebook group to get the lowdown on how to do it!
You might think that being mean to your body will make you more motivated to lose weight, but the truth is it just makes your feel bad and reach for the cookies. Focus on all the wonderful things your body does for you, and start to treat it like a friend. When you stop bullying and criticising yourself it becomes easy to make healthy eating choices, and choose to go for a walk instead of sitting on the couch. Your body is the most wonderful miracle of life, even if you have cellulite, or a few extra kgs, it deserves to be treated with respect and love.
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I met Kylie I was feeling very lost working full time in law in Sydney CBD. I’ve known my whole life that I was here to help people, but I just didn’t know exactly how. So when I found Kylie, it just was really fitting that it was going to help me ground my magic. I started the coach training and had an amazing time. It was beautiful to go through the process of having a mentor that had that spiritual element and that holistic element, as well as the very grounded science-based knowledge as well. So that really helped me to conjure that for myself.
I started my business before I even finished the course. I just started putting myself out there. And now I’ve gotten it to a point where I’ve got really grounded solid message, and two years later am running a multi-6 figure coaching business as a leading pioneer in my niche, helping clients all over the world.”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
Before attaining my NLP Coach certification, I was an online trainer who was getting excellent results for “some” of my clients. I used a mixture of experience, intuition and an exhausting “helicopter-parent” style of accountability coaching. It was like the 20% of the clients who weren’t getting good results took up 80% of my effort, and it was draining my passion for my business. Completing my Certification with Kylie has been the best decision of my career. The very next month after finishing I created a new program and made $30,000 in new sales. I now have a repeatable system to coach my clients and I can get them both immediate AND long-lasting change, sometimes in less than 40 minutes. In the past 12 months, I have doubled my freedom and fulfilment in my business I have created raving clients who snap up my offers.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
