Are You Struggling To Lose Weight?

So, it may be getting a little challenging, especially if you haven’t exercised for a while. Don’t worry, this is normal but it is very important you understand what is going on.

The reality is, in the first week of starting a new exercise routine, many people will begin to doubt themselves. They begin to doubt their new routine before allowing it to really work. The end result is never good. Another failed attempt at getting in shape.

Not You…Not This Time…Not Now
Depending on what you may or may not have going on in your life right now, change can be difficult if you don’t approach it the right way.

If you have a plan to follow, you can put yourself on the path of success.

That’s Life
I understand that life gets in the way at times but we are going to work through that to help you stay on track and FINALLY get you lasting results.

I want you understand the commitment and focus it is going to take to succeed. I also want you to realize, this is not an overnight process.

Sometimes we have these unrealistic expectations or outcomes, especially about losing weight. Because of these expectations we don’t allow the necessary time for the body to adapt. One word…Patience.

I won’t promise any unrealistic outcomes, but what I can promise you is, if you are mentally ready to commit, this program will show you the way to succeed.

Any Health Issues?
If you are dealing with any health issues whether that is early signs or you have already been diagnosed, my job is to improve your physical activity along with some adjustments to your eating schedule to reduce or eliminate these issues.

My job is to reduce your health risk like Cholesterol and High Blood Pressure before they become major health issues for you. Allowing issues like this to go untreated, can lead to major health issues and even death in the future.

It’s happening faster and faster these days. The foods we have access to is less nutritious and our lifestyles are putting more and more stress on our bodies.

Look Around You
If you look around you, you will notice the majority of people are overweight. Almost 3 out of every 4 Americans are overweight. Unfortunately, many people are becoming comfortable being over weight and this new acceptance is leading to major health issues.

It is also getting harder and harder to lose the weight once you put it on. It’s not impossible but it certainly isn’t as easy as some want to believe.

But ask yourself, how important is your health to you? Do you want to have more energy so you can actually have productive days that lead to a positive emotional state?

Do you want to look better to rebuild your self esteem, your confidence, your mojo? Trust me, once you start feeling and looking better it affects all aspects of your life, relationships, work, personal confidence etc.

Are You Ready? Are You Really Ready?
So how do you know if you are really ready? First, you need to ask yourself on a scale of 1-10, how serious are you to committing to a program that will get you the results.

Without going into too much detail, there are some underlying issues you are dealing with that have 2 root causes. If you are anything below and 8, the odds are you fall into 1 of those 2 categories:

  • You don’t have enough time and/or
  • You don’t have enough money

This is no time to be discouraged. This is a time to finally be motivated. You have signed up for an introductory program that shows you an effective and proven way to lose the added pounds and be in the best shape of your life?

You job right now is to stay focused and commit to creating new good behaviors and getting rid of the old ones that have gotten you to the point where you want to make a change.

How Do I Find The Time?
I am an entrepreneur, a devoted and very involved father and married to a cancer surgeon. I also train for triathlons year round, so the demands on my time are very real every day.

That said, there is a way and I would like to show you. I have found a way to own my time, accomplish more in less time and do it with limited amounts of stress to the point of going stress free in an entire day.

Seriously, ask yourself when was the last time that happen to you. Before I starting using some simple mental fitness training techniques, it seemed like everyday was exhausting both mentally and physically. It finally got to the point where I answered 10. I just didn’t want to live the way I was living anymore.

If you previously answered 8 or less, I want you to ask yourself the same question again on a scale of 1-10, how serious are you to commit to this program that will get you amazing result using a proven system?

You really have to believe.

What Is Mental Fitness?

 Change Your Mind!
This is really amazing when you truly grasp and understand how powerful it is and if you don’t it can have such a negative impact on your life. Why do you think a lot of people go through life year after year getting the same results.

Your brain does not know the difference between what you actually experience and what you vividly imagine. The use of Positive Affirmations helps the Subconscious mind to reprogram through repeated personal, positive, present tense statements that can override the negative belief or negative thoughts already registered. The repetition of these affirmations brings about new attitude while creating new pathways in the Subconscious mind.

You can sit down and listen to or read any of these self help books and say I can do that, that make sense and is logical or I’m willing to do all of it to make the change.  You can read all you want, you can listen to all you want, you can study all you want but if you don’t gain an understanding to alter the program, the current program is going to continue to give you the same results. So for you to increase your likelihood of success, you have to install some new programs. To do this, you have to literally create your future and you do this by planning. Below is a list of important questions you need to ask yourself.

Future Planning
* WHERE are you now.
* WHERE do you see yourself
* Steps NEEDED To Get There 

Setting Your Goals
* Why do you really WANT to do this?
* WHY does it mean so much to you to accomplish?
* What PAIN are you going to finally get rid of?
* How PASSIONATE are you about making it happen?

Finding Your Vision
The more we see and focus on what we want the faster we attract it. Get excited about your vision and goals and imagine what it will be like when you accomplish them. The more you do this, the more you harness the power of your subconscious mind to help make them come true. This process will help you develop the compelling reasons why you want to achieve your goals It will help create an emotional drive within to ensure you don’t give up.

Mindfulness
Meditation generally has something of a ‘bad’ reputation. That is to say that a lot of people associate it with religion or esoteric ideas and they think that they can’t meditate unless they’re ‘spiritual’. This can be off-putting for someone who doesn’t hold any religious beliefs or who doesn’t like esoteric ideas in general. But in fact you can practice meditation whether you are religious or an atheist.

All meditation really is, is a directed attempt to control your thoughts and the content of your mind and thereby to gain some peace and quiet or at least to be able to better understand the contents of your own brain. Often this means completely silencing all thoughts.

Many types of meditation, such as transcendental meditation, instruct you to think of ‘absolutely nothing’ and often this is achieved by focusing on your breathing, a mantra or a physical object like a candle flame. This can be difficult for beginners though, as they constantly find their mind wandering.

The idea behind mindfulness meditation then is not to try and empty your thoughts but instead to simply step back from them and ‘observe’ them like a detached third party. This way, you aren’t letting your thoughts affect you and make you stressed but you also aren’t going to struggle with not being ‘allowed’ to think anything. Meanwhile, using this technique will also allow you to become more aware of your own thoughts and thereby able to edit any thoughts that are leading you into trouble.

I strongly suggest getting more in tune with meditation. I have attached a great 5 Step Process to help you get the most out of meditation, even if you are a complete beginner.
