Show Me..Don’t Tell Me!

 

I find that people have difficulty being consistent with their Fitness and healthy eating routines. As the end of this bootcamp nears, I keep hearing people say, Miss Tadda I am going to do better, I am going to bring my nutritional meal plan book in, and day after day, no book and now they are coming in later and later or not showing up for days. I think I might have hurt one client’s feelings because he’s been saying this week after week, and I said show me and stop telling me. He said, you don’t believe me, I stated ‘People can tell you all day who they are however, who they really are always shows in their actions”.

Showing what is going on, as opposed to telling, is the answer to staying on track and being consistent.  While, telling is boring’ and so cliché. Action is the key. When you act, you show what you are doing, with direct action. When you tell, you describe what you will do. The way you fix the just telling problem is to see the scene in your mind and describe the action. Visualization is the key to putting your words into action. 

So many people love to talk the talk but when it comes to walking the walk, they do not want any part of that. They only want to talk a big game, so everyone thinks they work hard. Who you should be watching are the ones who work in silence? For example; I have really been impressed with a new client, Michael, one of our midpoint biggest losers. He’s a quiet guy, shows up on time, brings in his book everyday and when he first started writing in his meal plan booklet it was terrible, when I asked him to increase his water, he did, when I asked him to eat healthier, he did. He started coming to more than one session a day and I have seen his strength and confidence increase so much that I have him working out with the Orange Team now. When he wanted to learn more about running he attended the Run Clinic and then put into action what he learned, like showing up early to warm up and stretch. I love the fact that he makes no excuses, he takes the constructive criticism I give him and makes quick changes that have already made a difference in his fitness level. He doesn’t say much at all however his actions are screaming…” I am No Mess”.

A lesson I learned is that the greats don’t talk about what they are gonna do. They just do it! And if they do happen to talk, they can back it up. You can’t talk if you have nothing to show for it. Don’t be that person who keeps barking. Nobody likes it. Be that person who grinds every day, supports and motivates others to do the same. Remember the old saying “I can show you better than I can tell you!” No Mess
