Defiant Commitment. That’s what it took for Tiger Woods to make one of the greatest comebacks in sports history.
14 years after his last Masters, 11 years after his last major, 7 surgeries and after the earth shattering humiliation of public rebuke, he won!
I love this story because it highlights perfectly the kind of belief, commitment, desire and persistence it takes to overcome our greatest challenges.
Our clients who get amazing results show up this way.
Not just believing they have control when they’re having a good day, but believing there will be a day when they’ll always have control. Even on their worst days.
Not just looking for the easiest, fastest trick so they can feel better in the moment only to fall off the wagon a week of month from now. But determined to find a smart sustainable solution so they can live free for good.
Not complaining about food being so difficult for them, but accepting it so they can get the help to move on.
So many driven and got-it-all women (myself and my clients included) have achieved whatever we set our mind to.
Sometimes we saw momentum instantly…
At other times, we worked out assess off…
And through all this, we motivated ourselves with the short end of the stick a.k.a tough love and harsh words to get up, moving and winning.
It worked great! As did it for Tiger. His father employed prisoner-of-war tactics to train him as a kid. He would shout abuse at him hoping to teach him to thrive under pressure. When it got too much to take, he asked Tiger to say “enough”. Years later, Tiger would proudly own that he’d never once said that word because it was a term for quitters.
It helped Tiger become a larger-than-life champion very quickly but this competitive have-it-all nature eventually led to him needing sex addiction therapy.
Ladies, there are always two sides to every coin.
Our biggest strengths are also our biggest weaknesses. Especially with food.
Food needs love, not fear…
Gentle prodding, not all or nothing…
Surrender, not control…
Grace towards yourself, not hate or despair…
For my clients, for me in the past and for most of you today – that’s the hardest part.
Even if you know how to do these things,
You’re afraid of losing who you are if you give up control.
You’re scared of stagnating if you’re kind instead of tough-loving on yourself.
You’re terrified that loving food will make you binge even more, so you’d rather make it just fuel.
So instead of fixing food and moving forward, you’re stuck AND sabotaging yourself to boot.
Because this is so intrinsic to who you are, 90% of driven women can’t even see what they’re missing. That’s why when our clients start working with us – they see such amazing results because we can pinpoint what’s holding them back. We break barriers, fast!
Look boo – you might be in the 10% of women who can figure this out yourself. Go for it. Or you might not be ready to make fixing food a priority yet – that’s fine too. But if this is important to you right now, if the fight with food has you in despair, losing hope and doubting yourself – you owe it to yourself and your family to get help.
P.S. – I’m secretly (or not so secretly) really proud that what we teach our clients doesn’t just stop their sabotage with food but actually helps them get even better results / feel happier in their personal and professional lives. We can talk about how to do this with you too – book a free breakthrough to freedom call, and in this call we’ll get clear on how you’re sabotaging yourself and what awesome future with food is possible for you when you move past it
