Often times we have conflicting wants and desires within us, different parts of our brain and consciousness seem to have opposing needs and fight with each other. What do you do when the angel and devil on your shoulder are at war?
What you may not realise yet is that the two parts of yourself do actually have the same highest intention. Hard to believe when one side says “eat the cake” and the other side says ” “What, are you crazy? Put that down now!”
Just like flip sides of the coin, both drives are necessary for you to maintain balance and equilibruim, however when they’re at loggerheads it can be exhausting and lead to poor choices.
Do this exercise with me. Seriously do it. It will take about 10 mins and it works.
The truth is the answer may not always be the same. When you have conflicting voices that tell you to get up and train or sleep in, there are times when each one of them is right. It is not healthy to always get up and train, every single day; what about resting, recuperating, or when you are sick? Just like it is not healthy to sleep in every day. If you’ve been at war with yourself, take the time to work through the conflict and master the dichotomy. This is how you can overcome black and white thinking, through integrating the two into the multifaceted shades of grey.
How did you go with the exercise? Got any questions?
“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 clients when I had my gyms with Vision and more recently 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.
I highly recommend her work.
