Beyond Know-How: Why Your Best Self Needs an Accountability Sidekick

Hey there, you health enthusiast you! So, you already know the drill, right? You know what you need to do to be

your best self. You're well (enough) versed in the importance and foundations of nutrition, you can whip up a mean kale smoothie, and you have a expansive, exploding library of workout routines based on length, interest, location, etc.

But somehow even with knowing exactly what to do, you still aren't doing them. Your clothes aren't getting loser, you don't have more energy, you are still mindless eating at night, your workouts are subpar at best with long breaks, weak reps, and intermittent frequency.

Does this would like you? Can you relate?

Let's talk about the missing link, the game-changer, in your journey to a healthier and fitter you: an accountability coach.

Now, I know what you might be thinking, "I know what I'm supposed to do. Why do I need someone else telling me what I already know?" Trust me, I get it. But here's the thing – knowing and doing are two entirely different beasts.

Picture this: You have a to-do list as long as your arm, and the intention and desire to crush your workout and eat a balanced diet is there. But life happens. Work gets crazy, Netflix calls your name, and suddenly, that kale smoothie is replaced with a bag of chips because it's...just....there (and easy). Been there, right?

This is where the magic of having an accountability partner or coach comes into play.

Sure, you might be hesitant. You might think, "I can handle this on my own. I don't need to pay someone to keep me in check. They're expensive. What are they really don't anyway?"

But let me ask you this: What's the cost of not having someone in your corner? The cost of feeling sluggish, the cost of low energy, the cost of not living your best life?

Even worse, what's the long term cost of that action compounding over time? What could it lead to from a health level with doctor visits and possible prescriptions and other means to try and "get you healthy".

There's a cost to everything.

While you might think investing in a coach is expensive, let's talk about the cost of being unhealthy. Medical bills, medications, missed opportunities due to low energy – it adds up. Being unhealthy is expensive, not just financially, but in terms of your overall well-being (which I'd argue is even more valuable).

Now, let's address the elephant in the room – the "I'll do it later" mentality.

Procrastination is a silent killer of dreams, especially when it comes to your health. It's either hard now or hard later. Choosing your hard is about deciding which path you want to walk – the path of discipline, accountability, and a healthy lifestyle now, or the path of regret, health issues, and limitations later.

I know it sounds simpler and easier said than done, but I'd argue that it's pretty true when you look at if from that perspective.

Having a coach is not just about someone telling you what to eat and when to hit the gym. It's about having a partner in crime, a passenger on your journey, someone who understands your struggles, celebrates your victories, and keeps you on track when life gets hectic.

Think of it this way: professional athletes have coaches, not because they don't know how to play the game, but because coaches bring out the best in them. They provide that extra nudge, that accountability factor that turns knowledge into action and action into results and results into beliefs about who you are and who you are becoming.

So, here's your challenge: Consider the cost of not having a coach – the missed opportunities, the potential health issues, and the impact on your overall happiness. Then, weigh it against the investment in a coach who will guide you, push you, and help you become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. Let me know what the scale says.

Remember, it's not about knowing what to do; it's about doing what you know.

Choose your hard wisely – the hard work of discipline and accountability now, or the hard consequences of neglect later. Your best self is waiting, and a coach might just be the missing piece to unlock your full potential. Let's unlock it together.
