Your subconscious is a fickle beast. . I was recently speaking with a business coaching client of mine about what he charges and how he thinks he is perceived. . It quickly became clear that he never considered being an authority to people who are close to him. . I asked him why he wasn’t engaged in conversation with two specific people who I believe he could help, and he told me “both are friends with my wife”, as if friends are off limits to help! . The reality is that his perception is that his wife’s friends do not view him as an authority on the subject he IS an authority in, so he should continue giving them free advice instead of trying to serve them more deeply through a sale that would formalize the relationship. . I get it. You feel weird asking your friends or your wife’s friends in this case to pay you for your expertise. So you convince yourself that you shouldn’t even try. . What’s really happening is this. . You are suppressing your gift. . You are sacrificing the outcomes your friends COULD have. . You are leaving your friends to continue to suffer from something that you could help them overcome. . And most importantly, you are soothing your subconscious to believe that this is what you should be doing because it’s who you are and what you were meant to do. . You built a ceiling half way, or less, to your potential, and the pain of knowing it is too much to bear, so you numb yourself to it. . You’re meant to be more. . You’re meant to be more than you could imagine. . Drop your perception and build a new one. . Become you. . #TurnPro

In this episode Jason Ackerman sits down to talk with Dr Sean Pastuch to discuss TED – Toxic Exercise Dependency.   Have you heard of “Toxic Exercise Dependency” (TED)?

TED is a condition that is defined as the following:

Person(s) who exercise vigorously causing measurable negative findings in common health markers including but not limited to: Elevated white blood cells, hormone variability, loss of menstrual cycle, persistent muscle, tendon, and joint pain, and irregular sleep patterns.
In severe cases of TED, people have experienced intense pain, loss of libido, headaches, weight loss, kidney damage, and more.
Early signs that you may have TED include but are not limited to:

  • You exercise daily and have not taken a day off in more than a week.
  • You are in pain and instead of getting it taken care of or resting, you use support equipment to allow you to exercise.
  • You require pain killers (OTC or Prescription) in order to exercise without pain.

TED is a real condition often misunderstood to be a healthy habit, but it is actually as dangerous as habits widely accepted to be poor for your health.

If you have signs of TED, speak with your coach immediately. As coaches as well we should be looking out for our
