We’ve mentioned before that sometimes the best way to help people see through their own self limiting beliefs…….


Is a somewhat short reply (check out the monthly briefing meeting if you want to see other methods we use).


“So?” is a good one.


Try it!


Whatever your or someone else’s reason for eating badly, missing workouts, etc…….


Just keep saying “So?” in response.


Doesn’t always work perfectly.


But often does.




“I know I’ve gained weight, but I’ve been on holiday”




“Well, it was all inclusive”




“I thought I might as well get my money’s worth and just have everything”




“That’s what most people do on holiday”




“I suppose you’re right. I didn’t have to. It was still my choice”




“I’ve had a difficult few weeks. Works do, social things and so on”




“Well there was lots of crappy food and drink available”




“I thought it would be rude not to”




“Everyone else was”




“And I was quite rushed and stressed!”




“You’re right, I didn’t have to, did I?”




You get the message.


No one EVER ‘makes you’ eat or drink anything.


If you chose to, that’s cool.


We’re not your mum, we don’t tell you what to do.


And we’re not preaching – we’re hardly perfect!


But accepting it was your choice and no one else’s is empowering.


Keep asking yourself “So?” till you see that…….


And it might help you make a different decision next time.



Much love,


Jon “So?” Hall and Matt “So? So? So?” Nicholson
