10 ways tapping is like swinging a kettlebell

Healing yourself, loving the world

  1. You realize that you are lacking something in your life. You aren’t as fit as you’d like to be and you want more.
  2. To get started, you have to figure out the basics. You come across this thing, but you might be wondering, “What the heck is this weird thing supposed to do for me?”
  3. You realize that there are plenty of videos, podcasts or posts to read to see what you are supposed to be doing. But which ones are worth paying attention to and where do you start?
  4. You can admire other’s abilities and prowess, but you realize that just watching won’t do jack-diddly if you don’t try it yourself.
  5. You start to try things out, perhaps going to a gym or buying a few weights to use at home.
  6. You might not realize it’s working at first, or wonder if you are doing it right, or you might feel that burn the very first day and wonder if that’s normal.
  7. You ask friends at the gym to help you, assuming they know more than you do.
  8. You might ask for help from an expert trainer, perhaps booking a personal trainer at the start to show you the ropes. Or if you have the resources, you might decide to work with a trainer the whole time, knowing she can motivate and guide you.
  9. But while an expert can show you how to lift, you are the one who has to move the weights.
  10. The more you lift, the stronger you get.

P.S. The only way tapping isn’t like learning to weight-train is that you can’t really hurt yourself tapping by yourself.

P.P.S. I’ve got so much great content about tapping on my site, I want to help you find what you need. If you want to learn more about tapping for yourself, start on the How to Tap page. If you want to explore getting help from me, visit the Working Together Page.
