Doing stuff by yourself is boring and less effective – at least most of the time. Working out is boring and you never work as hard as when someone else is there to push you. Heck, naming your new puppy isn’t that much fun unless the kids share their creative ideas! Let’s face it, humans are social creatures so we have more fun and work better/harder when people who “get us” or who have been in our shoes surround us. Here are my top 3 reasons – David Letterman – to work within a group.
3. A Personal Support System – Who can’t use this?? Coaches and buddies in “our” group not only show us the way, they spur us on, keep us going when we feel like giving up, show us what we’re really made of and that we can and should love ourselves “as is.”
2. Benefit from Collective Wisdom – This is where 2+ 2 = 10. You’ll open creativity channels and uncover opportunities and solutions that you may not have discovered working solo. Have you ever been in a study group where you’ve learned from a classmate who gets it? Other group members help you master new concepts like a pro!
Getting fitness coaching or nutrition coaching, like in Lean Watchers, provides you the support you need to build healthy habits; using accountability to your benefit so you can see the results you’ve been working towards.
1. Higher Likelihood of Achieving Goals – You’ll finish that marathon, hike longer and eat healthier foods when you are surrounded by like-minded people and those who are interested in the same goal as you. You are almost guaranteed to reach your goals when you work as part of a group.
If feel like your in a rut or you’ve ever said “I know what I should do I just don’t do it” than it’s time to get some coaching to help show you the way to the next level.
