Welcome to my cuddle egg chair. This is a wonderful chair. It’s a cuddle chair in that there is room for another person here and when I’m in my cuddle egg chair, I feel happy.
I was thinking about this, relating it to coaching and food. Let me show you how I got there. So the circumstance is: the cuddle egg chair (there is this thing on my porch called a cuddle egg chair) and I feel happy when I think about it. I consider my chair and the feeling of happiness comes from not just having a chair on the porch, which is the circumstance, it’s just a fact I have a chair on my porch. The feeling of happy comes from a thought and then the feeling comes.
It may be imperceptible. It may be a subconscious thought I’m not aware of, this thought, but it probably is a thought. Something like ‘I feel safe in my cuddle chair… I love sitting in this place of relaxation and comfort and I love cuddling with someone in my chair‘ and then I feel happy.
So relating this to coaching and specifically Eat to Live Coaching, which is what I do, is an example from many clients that I can bring this home to. They’re Eating to Live. They’re doing the Nutritarian thing and they’re feeling despair like ‘I’ll never get this right’, feeling helpless and hopeless and if we look at why, it’s the thought that they’re having that’s in between the Eating to Live and the feeling of despair like ‘it won’t work’.
The thought could be ‘it won’t work’ the thought could be (this is a very common one) ‘if I eat one bite off Nutritarian protocol I may as well give up because I’m a failure’ ‘I can’t do this’ and then despair comes in and the helpless and hopeless feelings. Maybe some shame along with it. So it’s not that they’ve taken a bite of food off of protocol or even eaten a pizza or whatever it is, it’s the thought about it that now ‘I’m wrong… I’m bad… I’m not perfect so I can’t do this’.
So that’s what we look at in Private Coaching, the one-on-one coaching in the Eat to Live Family, in our Accelerator Program which is our group coaching program. All of it is based on this idea that thoughts create feelings create actions create results.
So it’s just as easy, it takes just as much brain power, to think ‘it’s okay… I’m learning how to Eat to Live for life… I’m learning how to make this the way that I eat, the majority of how I eat… and yes there’s going to be times when I am off protocol but I can get back on… I know what to do’ and that brings totally different feelings than deflated or defeated or helpless.
If you’re intrigued by this idea of thoughts and feelings bringing about actions bringing about results, as it relates to Eat to Live specifically or anything in your life whether it’s cuddle chairs or whatever it is, children, relationships, finances, jobs, whatever it is, I’d love to chat with you.
