Difficult teaching moment: – couldn’t please every client. Had one client that was asking for too much and Jason had to let him know where he stood. The client ended up leaving bad reviews. Jason’s mentor said: “you can’t make everyone happy, you have to focus on your mission”
Thoughts on mentorship:
He worked with 8-9 different coaches
Each coach has a different perspective
When you’re just starting on something, mentorship is very important
Some coaches are for mindset others are for strategy
Greatest moment mentoring someone: helped coach a young lady with some deep rooted beliefs. During their conversation she sighed the biggest sigh of relief.
“Whether you’re dealing with business or fitness, those two things are very psychological” – Jason Benavides
Common fitness mental blocks:
negative energy associated with food
Ex) The emotional pain from A strained family relationship can be relieved through eating
How do you eat healthier when the ones closest to you isn’t on the same page?
The healthy support system is important to help you keep focus
If you don’t have the support at home, consider joining a community online
If someone at work brings bad food to work or at home, you can reach out to your online community, vent about whats happening, and the community will keep you on track.
