Going into the Weekend Thought….

 

Praise Behaviors, NOT Results.⠀⁣

 

Whenever people lose weight, lower body fat, or experience positive health changes, it’s very tempting to high-five them and lavish praise.⠀⁣

But But there are risks of doing this.⠀⁣

“Results are somewhat unpredictable. Therefore, it doesn’t make sense to praise metrics. Because they’re fickle. And clients have limited control over them.⠀⁣

On the other hand, behaviors are controllable, and consistent behaviors often lead to long-term, sustainable outcomes.⠀⁣

So, when you praise behaviors (instead of outcomes), people will associate taking action and showing up — not dropping numbers on the scale — with smiles and high-fives.”⠀⁣

The next time someone shares an exciting milestone with you, try praising them for the habits that got them there — for example, consistency in showing up to appointments, making more home-cooked meals, going to bed earlier, etc.⁣
