As humans we are generally motivated by fear. We are afraid of death, loss, pain, suffering... but then why don't we choose healthier lifestyles, or get help when we need it? Fear is crippling and NOT motivating.
Hinge #1 - Motivation without fear = love yourself + focus on self care.
We are also procrastinators... always looking to start a project, go through bills, learn a new skill, meal prep, exercise, TOMORROW.
Hinge #2 - Just start = sign up for a consultation now.

Ever start a new project with lots of excitement and passion, then over time you lose momentum and and the project fizzles? Happens all of the time. Working with a coach or a group will help keep you on track to achieving your goals.
Hinge #4 - Enroll others to help hold you accountable.
