I am catching up with posting online my articles.
Few days ago I had a client and we started to talk about his health issues. One of them was diabetes and overweight. So I started to give him suggestions in regards to changes in the diet and we came across drinking Coca-Cola and other sweet drinks. I recommended that he should drink it only occasionally and the main intake of fluids should be water. He was really surprised with what I said. As a matter of fact this was a big shock for him because whenever he goes out with friends he orders Cola. Though we continued our conversation and he explained that it is not so much about the taste but ordering water while going out with friends is something not accepted socially.
Well... at least this is what he thinks and believes. To me it is obvious that he allowed this belief in his mind and the friends around him confirm what he believes. And then there is also a point of self abuse as he does something that he does not like and is not healthy for him just to keep his friends "happy".
I saw the big resistance in him and I did not intend to explain it more. I simply let him go. But I am certain that even though he was closed for my suggestions he registered it in his mind and one day it will remember it.
By the way I want to congratulate Coca-Cola company for being successful company.
