Going All In – A Strategy “Willing To Lose”

So I honestly am making up the name of this strategy.  If you read this and can come up with a better name, by all means, let me know.  Until then, I’m naming it “Willing To Lose”.  

My coach has this great example of proving whether or not her clients are believing that they are really going to make their goal happen, that they are 100% all in.  

Let’s go with a weight goal – losing 6 lbs this month.  Just a tad outside my comfort zone but not ridiculously out of the question.  

I’m going to have the belief: Oh, yeah, I’m going to lose 6 lbs this month.  No problem.  

My actions are that I’m eating bread once a week, no sugar, and exercising twice a week.  

And after two weeks, I only lose two pounds.  

I start panicking or thinking I’m doing something wrong or wasting my time.  

At this point, I’m completely doubting whether or not I’m going to hit my goal.  

My coach will say to me – are you willing to pay me $10,000 if you don’t hit your goal?  

And because I’m doubting, I’m not willing to lose $10,000 so I am going to say ‘HAIL’ no.  

I’m not really all in.  I’m full of doubt and fear, not determination and focus.  

Do you see this?

A person who is ALL IN is going to say – yes.  I am going to to do whatever it takes to lose the other four pounds.  This is possible.  It is happening.  I can say yes I’ll pay you because I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am going to show up for myself.  I am going to make it happen.  I am not willing to lose.

What is your goal?  Like a specific real goal.  

Are you willing to pay me $10,000 if you don’t hit it? Don’t play not to lose. Play to win.

Old You vs. New You

The old is gone and the new has come.  What parts of the old you are you still leaning on?  

Old me:  Oh, I’ll just take my time and wonder around for a while, read all the signs and directions; google all the possible disasters.   

New me: That’s where I’m headed. Running the whole way.  This is happening.

I am the daughter of the King.  I serve a mighty God who will move Heaven and Earth for me to run after what He has called me to do. 

I will run, not half-jog, in this journey with desire, love, and excitement. 

It is fear that keeps me alive, but it will not be fear that holds me back.  

It is always love.  Love for myself, love for others, and love for our God.  

Now, I am looking for moms and dads who want to know more about how to light the fire under their teen’s you know what and get them to not hold back.  I have a quick 10 minute virtual training next Tuesday, the 23rd for parents at 11am.  

After the session, you’ll also get the three short videos I made for your teens – How To Get Moving, How To Get Motivated, & How To Get Mentally Strong.  Those will be sent to anyone who signs up for the session.  

The videos alone are life changing for your teens. I can’t wait to help them change their year and their life!
