Hi, guys, welcome to Mental Monday. I'm Lindsey Wilson. Okay, I heard this quote the other day, and it's "You cannot give out what you're not actively working on yourself". If you're not actively practicing, heard from Dr. Becky. And I was like, wow, this is exactly what we are working on with our coaches. Because when you are trying to influence someone else, if you are not sitting in absolute authenticity, it is really hard to work on it with them. And when you're modeling the behavior, yes, you may be at a different level than the person that you're trying to influence.
But when you're not modeling how to work through that thing, you are missing a huge part of being able to influence them. Because words only go so far, right? We can tell somebody all day long to be confident, we can tell them all day long to be relaxed or under pressure or take a deep breath, we can tell them to do those things. If we are not doing them, even if they don't see us doing them, if we're not doing them, our words, ring hollow. And I think we're missing a huge opportunity to impact other people in a way that their bodies and their minds can understand and practice, again, because the verbal language has so many limitations. People tune things out. They don't quite understand how to do it. But the way that we are communicating through our body and our actions, people are paying attention to us all the time.
So the best example I see is if I'm telling my kids how to handle big emotions, but I'm not doing it myself. When they see me frustrated, my new daughter even does this. They see me frustrated or mad and remind me to take a deep breath, which is hilarious. And also like, why am I not doing it myself? So just a quick little reminder that if you're trying to influence people, and I know that you are, remember to practice what you preach. Now we have our monthly coaching program coming up soon, we're going to open up to you. So if you're interested in doing it as a group, if you're interested in doing it with me getting coached and committing to doing this, more information is coming soon. But regardless, I want you to remember, whatever the change is you want to see in other people, whatever the thing is, you wish people would just do, do it yourself.
Do it yourself. Practice what you preach, walk the walk, you'll be happier, you'll be better and they will be getting the message. This is how we do it. And that is so much more powerful than anything you can say.
