Often people say they want to look better, fit into their jeans, or feel better, however in my experience, I don’t think this is a strong enough reason for many people to actually do what it takes to get slim.
These are wishy-washy, general answers and don’t really get to the heart of the matter. When you uncover the reasons that make you get emotional, and that lead you to that “whatever it takes” feeling, that’s when you know you’ve got the reason that will see you achieve results. This kind of reason, leads to a resolve and commitment that will help you to overcome the tough days and keep going.
I recently read a great analogy from Michelle Berger the Buffmother. Her book was excellent and very inspiring, I highly recommend it. She talks a lot about your legacy and having a reason why that is bigger than yourself. Would you risk your life to achieve your goal?
Imagine you are standing on one side of a river, there is slippery looking fallen tree that goes to the other side. The water is lapping at the log. You can see the river has a fast current and you can see crocodiles and pirahnas in the water, one the other side of the river you see a pride of lions in the distance and coming closer.
If you were to instantly achieve your ideal body weight and shape, and look better than you ever have before, would you cross to the other side of the river and back again?
Would you do it? Or would you hesitate?
Now, imagine that your newborn baby is on the other side of the river, dangerously close to the edge, and you see a crocodile coming closer, would you run across that log to save your baby from being tugged apart by a lion and crocodile?
It’s not even a competition. You’d be across that log faster than you could blink.
This is the power of a reason that is about more than just you. When you have a reason that inspires you to act even in spite of danger or pain, then you have a reason that will get you results.
‘Looking good’ and ‘feeling better about yourself’ are for most people just not a strong enough reason to get you to act in spite of pain. Often losing weight and getting healthy is actually just a milestone or a step, that leads you to be able to achieve a larger or more meaningful goal.
For me, I didn’t find my big reason why, the reason that compelled me to act and achieve my results until I fell in love, and my boyfriend went away on holidays. I loved him desperately and when I thought about being with him suddenly a whole new world of possibilities opened up for me. Being loved, having a family with an emotionally stable man with an amazing extended family, children, wonderful and successful friends, living a wonderful happy life all seemed like it was possible. And even though we got together while I was bigger, and I knew I was loved for who I was. I also knew that being overweight was not a part of that life that I wanted. It just didn’t fit. I was terribly afraid of losing the chance at that happiness. So my big reason why was to become the goddess that would have a successful, happy, loved, emotionally stable life.
Sometimes it’s hard to put your reason into words, but when I think about how much that dream meant to me at the time, when I was emotionally scarred and barely coping, is more than I can even express. I was willing to do whatever it takes.
If you want help to get clear on your goal, discover your big why and remove the emotional obstacles. The Kickstart Motivation Program will help you.
Dig deep inside yourself and find your reason, your legacy, your reason and you will find the fuel to create it, just as I have done.
“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.
