Motivational Monday: What are you looking for?

What Am I Looking For.jpg
One of my star coaching clients (you are all stars), confessed that she found herself walking in and out of the kitchen all day long – looking. Opening and closing the cabinets, the fridge, the oven … over and over and over again – all day long … looking, foraging, helping herself to a bite of this and a lick and taste of that.
Needless to say, this was not helping her weight loss efforts. So – together we came up with a plan. Aside from exploring what she was really looking for, as in life and not food, we still wanted to keep Martha (the name has been changed to protect the innocent) out of the fridge. You dig?
So … Martha made signs that read “What am I looking for?” and posted them on all the cabinet doors and the fridge. The signs created a ‘pause.’ Martha stopped and read them, giving ‘pause’ for thought. What was she looking for, indeed?
The signs were working brilliantly for weeks. And then one day Martha told me that she’d returned to her old routine, foraging the fridge, grazing the pantry. I said, “Oh no, are the signs not working any longer?” To which she replied, “Oh, they fell down.”
Martha put them back up with sticky tape, this time, and they are still working wonderfully!
The moral of the story: If your signs fall down, put them back up!
