I have a coach to support me in my weight loss process. Part of my commitment is to be more active. When I started, I set a goal to increase my number of steps by 500 per day every week. I moved from 3,000 to 8,000 steps a day which was pretty great for me. Now I do 10,000 steps every single day. The new habit required change. And I go to the gym 5 days a week.
Looking back, I remember the week where I was upping my steps, didn’t make it and almost wrote down the number I had committed to achieving. I stopped and said to myself, “Who are you kidding?”
Who wants to lose weight? Me.
Who committed to the changes? Me.
Who benefits from the steps? Me.
Who am I kidding?
Of course, my coach wouldn’t know. But I would know. I stopped and marveled at my own conniving. Who am I kidding?
As I coach many top salespeople, I hear, “I made a TON of calls,” “I worked sooo hard!” and lots of other statements. Who are you kidding?
When I coach direct sellers, I often remind them that I want to not only hold their dreams but hold them to the activities that will lead to their dreams. When you make a commitment, there is a temptation to want to appear to be doing things “right” for your coach. Stop and ask yourself, “Who am I kidding?”
