When you use the snowball motivation technique to create change, you start out with a tiny action that is easy to achieve. When you consistently achieve that action for a week, it increases your self-belief and confidence in yourself, then when you add on another small action it is easy to achieve because you have a history of completing your commitments to yourself.
One of the biggest problems with massive life changes is that it encourages the All or Nothing mindset which is not conducive to long term success. This is where you go hammer and tongs for a few days then fall off the wagon and stop completely, until you gird yourself to go at it like crazy again. Using the snowball change seems slow at first, but you will quite quickly gain momentum from your simple changes. And they will last because they are so easy.
When you gain momentum, you are using the energy of the achievement of the first simple change to help propel you forward. You are also changing your lifestyle one thing at a time by adding in a new healthy habit. When you add in a new healthy habit, and focus on that, you are positively and proactively focussed, rather than when you commit to stop something, which is negatively focussed. When you add in enough small, healthy habits, you will eventually crowd out your old unhealthy ones, and they will simply fall away.

“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.

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.
