Why do some people not do what they say they are going to do? And why do some people say they want to change what they have, but still don’t make the changes that are needed?
These are the questions, as a health coach, that I ask myself every day. It is fundamentally why I love the process of coaching.
Being given a puzzle to solve really ignites something in me. It is partly a challenge but also a desire to help people move forward and achieve their potential.
So why do some people not do what they say they are going to do?
Well in my experience, it is just not some people, but the majority of people I have encountered with regards wanting to improve their health.
The fact it is most people would suggest that it is more common than not to not carry out what you said you wanted to do.
Now I want to make something very clear, I am not one of these coaches who tell people what to do (even though many of my clients think I do). So the reason people don’t do what they say they going to do, is not predominately down to because someone else told them to do it, and that they don’t truly believe doing it will provide the results they want.
Based on someone's desires and current mindset and environment, I provide recommendations on what to do to achieve a certain outcome based on numerous years of coaching and outcomes (positive and negative) I have witnessed.
My coaching approach is very much ‘you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink’.
