Y sus beneficios

Hola a todos,

La frase en cuestión es del libro Cuenta contigo de Patricia Ramírez Loeffler.

Observación

Ahora que sabemos que la ciencia avala la imitación y que tienes claras tus necesidades y sus beneficios, observa tu alrededor. El proceso de atención es fundamental en este punto. Prestar atención supone focalizar lo que quieres copiar y desatender lo que no te interesa.

Am I correct in thinking that "y sus beneficios" refers to "la imitación"?

Or does it imply the benefits you will receive as a result of having your needs met?

Thank you.

It's hard to know what «sus beneficios» refers to given only this context. Without more context, we're only guessing.
It couldn't be "imitation." That's not plural.
It could very well be "the benefits you'll receive as a result of having your needs met."
After looking at it over and over, I'd say that makes sense (and is the best guess you could make).

Thank you, Rusty!

Before that she was talking about how imitation can help you become a person you want to be.

"Todo no puedes cambiarlo a la vez. Elige tu objetivo. Sigue un criterio; lo que más necesites, como podría ser la responsabilidad para hacer frente a tu trabajo, o lo que más te apetezca, como la positividad para sentirte mejor. Gracias a la imitación podemos aprender todo lo que no es innato. Así que tú serás quien desees ser, ni más ni menos."

And then she gave two examples (where benefits are mentioned):

1. Decido transformarme en... «UNA PERSONA MÁS PACIENTE». Y con ello creo que tendré los siguientes beneficios:

Yeah, based on the additional context, I'd say those are the benefits she referred to.
