Meaningful Teaching Moments

In my experience… If I see someone drowning I jump in to save them.

Typically when you resuscitate them, and they breathe life again, they are a bit discouraged. Then it becomes a motivational force that keeps them going straight (toward a target).

So for me, I am all about the motivational/awareness teaching points. This impacts people in meaningful/long-lasting ways. The motivation has to be derived from what makes them tick (mindfulness). This is what “it” is all about. Enabling people to discover what “it” is that drives them. The discovery is like training a muscle or movement. People who have found success are better practiced at this skill. Similarly, it is like any exercises; with more experience you can break plateaus and discover more about the practice.

Also I know that the brain is like a muscle, in the generic sense. It must have oxygen, blood, and nutrients (etc.) to survive. If you want your brain (mind) to be strengthened you have to push through muscle fatigue. Of course there is a hormetic cost/benefit with this. But most typically when it comes to mental capacities, people will quit before they have reached failure. This is the point where guidance comes in. Everyone will need some mentorship or teaching moment. This is true because any good teacher simply enables you to take a piece of their knowledge and make it your own. Knowledge which will nudge you to the next level of mastery.

Ironic that the ‘hardest’ part of my job is the least important. Physical training does next to nothing for the bigger picture. Smoke and mirrors to get people to eat best and be happy. Obviously if your shoulder hurts or you are over weight the previously stated is not happening…
