So you’ve downloaded my –> Xmas Survival guide right?
Over the coming weeks I’m going to help make the strategies
inside this guide work for you
I’d like to start helping you today actually with my favourite strategy
A strategy I rarely see people ever use
It’s also a strategy I rarely see fail (when implemented)
WARNING! No Exercise or Nutrition Tips Here
You may be surprised that the strategy I’ve picked
actually has NOTHING to do with exercise or nutrition…
The Strategy?…GOING PUBLIC
Going public is a an accountability tool you rarely EVER
see people use
But here’s one thing I’ve learnt about success (be it in any form)
—-[The BIGGER…SCARIER …& MORE UNCOMFORTABLE
the actions/decisions we make in life, (in most cases)
…the BIGGER, BADDER & MORE KICK-ASS THE RESULTS]—-
You Don’t Have To Believe It
Arguably one of the greatest sportsmen in history..Muhammad Ali
used this strategy all the time in the run up to a fight!
(worked pretty well for him)
Heck, he didn’t just tell a few
people about his goal though…he told the whole world!
That takes serious balls!
More importantly though I reck it had a huge
bearing on his success.
The question is, Did he really believe he would beat every person he fought?
I doubt it…
But I do believe that by constantly telling everyone
he would win, he started to convince himself he would!
Now imagine if you could convince yourself you:
– Could finally lose that last two stone in weight
– Kick a habit like drinking too often or smoking.
– Will finally achieve that fitness goal that you’ve been striving for, for what
feel like years now
Worth giving it an Ali shot no?
How To Go Public
Well if you’ve got the balls & wanna give it a try
here’s the 3 step formula you’ve been waiting for…
Step 1—> The first thing to do is set
what I call a BIG HAIRY Grizzly Bear
of a Goal
Nah that kinda goal setting sucks.
It needs to be the kinda goal that sends
shivers down your spine when you think about it
The Right Kinda Motivation
It must, must, must be a goal that you have an intrinsic
motivation for, (motivation is split into two categories)
Extrinsic Motivation = The goal is to win a prize/trophy etc
Intrinsic Motivation = A goal that gives you deep rooted satisfaction,
something that can not be linked to a monetary value
Step 2. —-> Go Public
That’s right, tell people what you’re going to do. Tell friends, family
maybe even post it on social media if you have the balls of Ali!
Write down your Grizzly Bear & pin it on the fridge,
Set due dates and mile stones,
Above all….DO THE WORK!
Step 3. —-> Get planning
Achieving a Grizzly Bear of a goal is no mean feat!
Like Ali, you gotta put in the work
I suggest you grab a pen n paper
…sit down & brainstorm a MASTERPLAN
..and if you don’t have all the answers, ask yourself who does?
This will probably surprise you but…
Your Grizzly bear doesn’t have to have anything to do with
exercise or food
Infact if you’re struggling with:
- Lack of sleep
- High stress levels
- Personal/Family/Relationship problems
- Work/money issues
- Never having any time
…then increasing exercise OR restricting food intake is only going to
ADD to the threat/stress on your body
MORE THREAT = MORE ISSUES = MORE WEIGHT GAIN
= BIGGER HILL TO CLIMB IN 2014
For Example: If you’re highly stressed your bodies digestive system
will start shutting down anyway
Anything you eat, regardless of how healthy it is,
will not be absorbed or digested properly
