How Do I Put Into Practice What I Know?

That's a great question, M.

I think we all battle with this to a certain extent. We know what to do but we don't do it.

The answer is simple but it's not easy to do!

1. You have to be motivated by why you want to do it, and then have the discipline to start doing it daily. It takes 21 days to build a habit and once the habit is created, it becomes easy.
2. Make yourself accountable to someone. This is why coaching is so great - you're checking in with your coach every week or two and if nothing else, this will accelerate you towards your goals of more time, more purpose in life, more money, better relationship, etc. Whatever the specific things are that you want out of life.

Personally, the best way for me to make any life change is definitely to make myself accountable to someone.

The only time I ever have sustained weight loss is when I'm on Weigh-Less and I go to group meetings to weigh weekly. Now the thing is they're not teaching me anything new because I knew 90% of those things before. It's the holding myself accountable that does it for me. That's how I put good eating habits into practice.

With other life issues like in the past when I had BAD time management issues, I got myself a coach and accelerated to a "normal" life in a few short weeks. Then we could move onto the fun stuff like achieving some of my other goals - promotions, more money, those sorts of fun stuff.

Hope this helped you, M, and remember, if you need some coaching, email me on
