Drama Vs. Data: Which one are you feeding?
“Hey! What’s up? Today I want to cover a topic which is Drama Vs. Data. Since we’re a personal training facility part of our value is tracking data and holding people accountable to move in towards the data that they are looking for and that data would be weighing people in, re-doing our InBody assessment that graphs everything out, also doing before and after pictures; and just those 3 points of data can tell you a massive amount. And then we’re also adding the heart rate monitors coming in soon. So we’re going to have polar flow heart rate monitors where you can see on the screen what your percentage of heart rate is, what your max, your lowest heart rate throughout your workout, how fast you recover, etc. and that will give you even more data. And so the more data we give the better.
Now there’s difference between data and drama. Drama is… “Ugh! I’m so fat, Ugh! I don’t feel good, I don’t feel like doing that, I can’t do that… blah blah blah…” that is drama. And drama takes you further away from your goal whereas data takes you closer to your goals so for an example if someone is going to weigh in… “Ugh! I just feel so fat, I just take so much on the weekend, I hate the scale, I can’t weigh in, I don’t feel good…” that’s drama or approaching the scale by saying “You know what this is telling me that 20lbs away from where I would like to be…” and now that’s data. If you focus on the drama, you’re not going to get closer to your goal, and that drama, that feeling, and that vibration you’re giving off actually is a low energy which takes you further away from your goal whereas the data brings you closer because it’s a mindset change.
So what I would suggest or consider looking at where do you have drama in your life that is actually stopping you from getting to where you want to be and turn that into data. So change the mindset around it. Just say Okay, you know you can relate it to anything so weight how you feel, money in the bank right you know would people have this reels in their head that are telling them so that’s a certain thing. And so, your self dialogue comes from your thoughts, your thoughts come from your feelings and your feelings come from your environment so ultimately either something needs to change in your environment, or you’re not hanging around the right people to make you feel good, you’re not living in an environment that makes you feel good, feel healthy and happy, you’re not buying the right foods, the foods that might trigger the emotional eating. So your environment ultimately dictates your feelings, thoughts, actions, all those things and can create more drama. So, stay away from the drama, focus on the data and you will get closer to your goals.”
