In this video we will share tips and go over the "Pain and Pleasure" of the client video.

Pain and Pleasure (Coach)

Everything we do in life is because we’re either avoiding pain or moving toward pleasure.
If you’re continuing a pattern or behavior that you don’t like, it’s because you’re linking more pain to stopping it than you are to continuing it. And if there’s something you’re not doing that you want to do, it’s because you link more pain to doing it than not doing it.
