had a good conversation with one of the soldiers today regarding handling behavioral traits for peers/friends/employees who are characteristically "kaibosing" themselves when it comes time to "take it to the next level"and how to help those...that is, we all know someone who has consistently at many points/times in their life got to a point of somewhat success with something, and then they throw in the towel completely (this can be done by finding a way to get injured, taking on too much, reating more work than is needed, procrastinating on has many sides to it)...and then ironically move on to some other venture and do the same thing...just in another suit (that is, with fitness, work, relationships...) i see it sometimes with traits in folks who experience this in trying to achieve the path to higher levels of fitness

what i have found that has worked with folks is to first bring them back to discussing the "emotions" they are feeling around the time they decide they need to "throw it in"...and really work together on discussing these times and what they are feeling, this allows a "noticing and awareness" of what is going on at the time...sometimes it allows the person to then DETACH themselves from the moment completely, giving it a new owner so to speak...and secondly, then go away for a while and think about why these feelings are really coming up, what has brought them on...i usually get reports back of some really powerful indications of fears of failure and success and what usually accompanies this (most times from some things that have shaped them from a young age)...sometimes people are just not ready for in life, it becomes a learning

but if you have to hold people accountable for their actions that are close to you and are experiencing these happenings, listen and listen some more, ask questions about how they are feeling at these times, and help them understand what's going on...when they become aware, it'll help everyone

Oddly enough I was just thinking about this the other day. I can definitely relate to it myself...

Very interesting - it's got me thinking!
