Common Pitfalls and Roadblocks to Success
What are your Roadblocks to Success?
I wanted to write about this topic to discuss why clients might not improve on a wellness program. Half of this process is physical and half is mental and emotional. Physically, when clients follow our program they begin to completely heal their body which results in better health and increase energy levels. There are very few physical roadblocks. What stops them from achieving success is always emotional and mental. So, the question to ask yourself is what are my roadblocks? What mentally and emotionally will get in my way to achieve success? Common roadblocks are:
- I don’t have enough time
- I don’t feel like taking all of these supplements
- I don’t like cooking
- I’m too busy
- I feel better when I eat junk food
- I want to have an active social life and drink as much as I want
- I want to enjoy life and eat what I want
- I work too much to do this program
- When I’m stressed I eat more
- I hate my work so I eat more
- I don’t think any program will help me
- Nothing ever works for me
There are many roadblocks that person can have. The bottom line is that there is a specific resistance that blocks a client’s success. This process is not only physical, it is also an emotional and spiritual journey. You will learn many valuable lessons along the way and get to know yourself so much better. But in order to do so, you must always ask the question “what are my roadblocks?” and “why am I resistant?”.
Doing this type of work for many years, I’ve noticed that some clients can be more successful than others in reaching their goal. Here are a few common pitfalls:
- Lack of compliance
- Didn’t do follow up testing
- Poor nutritional habits
As clients learn more about themselves, keeping pitfalls and roadblocks at bay is an important part of the process – self awareness and accountability is a key aspect to attain long-term success.
Stopping the Program after Success
Starting to feel better? Another issue I’ve seen is that the main symptoms go away, so a client will stop all of their supplements and begin to stray from good quality nutrition. It is important to fully heal. This means to continue retesting, supplements, and healthy eating until all symptoms go away and your labs show that you have completely healed. Of course, even after fully healing it is important to continue to eat healthy.
Quick Fix Mentality
Another issue that I see with today’s modern advertising campaigns is the emphasis on the “quick fix”. Simply put, it is easy to change and it’s “quick”. Healing takes time, dedication, consistency, and discipline. Don’t get sucked into false advertising. This is incredibly common in the fitness, health, and medical industry. It is better to tell a client what they need to hear vs. what they want to hear. I like to be up front and honest with my clients and make it clear that it does take time and work, but the benefits are worth it.
Goals and Dreams
Use this program as a bridge to connect you with your goals or dreams. This process makes it much easier to achieve success and will allow you to maintain consistency in the long run.
