Some corporations are dangling their carrots or are they apples?
I have read & heard from employees-”If YOU want ME to lose weight- show me the money”.. Wow! Do you find a small problem with that statement? Does this mean corporations can count on sustainable changes from an employee, buy giving bonuses for the most weight loss, which by the way, is a temporary bribe. Does it make a difference of whether the weight was lost healthfully? Would he eventually gain all the weight back, increasing risk to lower immune system and more doctor visits?
You might as well be talking about games, when you say, “show me the money”. My thoughts are raising the stakes with weight loss, doesn’t work unless there is commitment to oneself to want to achieve true health with true weight loss.
Without a frame of mind to “be-healthy” or “mindful” of our choice of foods,toxins in our world and exercise program in place, we might sometimes find ourselves with a limiting belief system. A fast, do it now, forget about the consequences later attitude. There may be true comfort staying in that same place. Our comfort zone, may unconsciously keep us stuck, unable to step up or show up fully in our work environment.
In health, there seems to be a wide margin of beliefs preventing prevention. It could mean you think you have no way out from hereditary ailments. It could mean you don’t believe in yourself or are overwhelmed when you make changes.
What does it cost to be healthy? Are there cost differences in being sick or can preventing an illness be less expensive? Yes, I would have to say-Prevention always cost less.
True healthy weight loss could taste better, feel better, look better, smell better and always cost less than being sick and/or obese. Yet, how many dollars, hours and flowers are spent on sickness every day, before we make that decision to change?
Unfortunately being healthy is something we don’t even consider before taking that magic pill or playing those money games like “Show me the money”.
Show me the money or show me health, are two very different steps, with very different directions and very different results.
One solution could be teaching “Balance” in all areas. I teach corporate employees true health from within and they are happy to see my success rates and results.
