The Model

The Model

The Model was created by my teacher and coach Brooke Castillo.

She didn’t come up with the concepts, but she organized them in a way that is easy to use.

This is the foundation of my coaching practice.

You can solve any problem by using The Model.

C-Circumstances
T-Thoughts
F-Feelings
A-Actions
R-Results

It’s a way to show you what you are creating in your life.

Here is an example.

If you are overeating, you plug that in the A line

C-
T-
F-
A-Overeating
R-

Ask yourself why am I overeating? Because pizza tastes so good. I chose pizza as the C because it is neutral and it’s triggering thoughts.

C-Pizza
T-It tastes so good
F-
A-Overeating
R-

When you think the thought “it tastes so good” how does that make you feel? Desire/wanting which drives overeating. 

C-Pizza
T-It tastes so good
F-Desire
A-Overeating
R-

The Action line is where willpower shows up. Willpower has limited supply. Most of us use up our willpower by 10am! No wonder it is so hard to not over the eat the pizza at dinner, our willpower has already been used up for the day.

What result do you get when you overeat? 

C-Pizza
T-It tastes so good
F-Desire
A-Overeating
R-You keep eating because you think it tastes so good

This is how our thinking keeps us overweight. Can you see that? It’s subtle.

Pizza is a neutral. You have the option to think many thoughts about it. All thoughts are available to you.

If you want to lose weight, you need to start practicing thoughts that will not result in overeating.

C-Pizza
T-I’ll be good with two slices
F-Satisfied 
A-Eat planned two slices
R-I only eat two slices 

Bringing awareness to your thinking, feeling, and actions give you good information. From there, you can make any changes you want!

I would love to help you make a change in your life.
