When Your Client Says “I can’t”

When your client says “I can’t,” what do you say?

I can’t give up gluten. I can’t eat greens – they’re boring. I can’t exercise – my knees hurt soo much.

Whenever I hear them say I can’t, I ask, “What do you think would happen if you could?”

Our deep conversation often (and usually) unearths some very strong limiting beliefs.

The power of a simple question should not be overlooked.

Curious questions, asked without judgment or desire to persuade are amongst your most powerful tools.
