You see it all the time …
Advertisers telling you how they’ve uncovered the “secret” to losing weight and getting fit.
They tell you that if you just take their one pill … follow their new revolutionary diet … or eat carbs only on every second Tuesday of the month, you will finally win the battle of the “bulge.”
Sadly, that’s just not the case.
There’s only one “tried-and-true” secret to losing as much fat as you want and looking great in a bathing suit or anything else you want to wear …
What’s the secret? It’s one word: action.
See, most people want to get fit … they want to get healthy … they want to look great and get admiring looks from passers-by. But they’re not willing to do what it takes. It takes action to eat right. It takes action to get into the gym and workout. It takes action to find and make the time for a personal trainer who can help get you there faster. And, it takes action to learn about different supplements that can help and then actually take them on a daily basis.
Let me ask you a question … what is the secret behind brushing your teeth this morning? Or showering and getting ready for work?
What’s that you say? There’s no secret? You just “did it?” Well, getting in shape is no different.
Sure, you need to educate yourself and learn about the actions you need to take. But those can be shown to you by a good personal trainer.
Once you have the knowledge, however, the secret ingredient is to take action. Do whatever you need to do, starting with where you are.
Are you so out of shape that climbing a flight of stairs leaves you winded? Start by walking 5-10 minutes around your neighbourhood every day. Are you exercising but eating things you know you shouldn’t on a regular basis? Then stop and start eating those things you know are good for you.
Wherever you are and whatever your situation, there is at least one action – no matter how small – that you can take towards getting in shape. Once you figure out what that action is, then do it. Do it right now. Not tomorrow. As cliché as it sounds, you don’t want to put off tomorrow what you can do today.
See, lots of folks already have a lot of knowledge on what it takes to get them in shape. But remember, knowledge isn’t power. Applied knowledge is. And the only way to apply something is through taking action.
Of course, like anything else, getting into the habit of taking action is something you build, just like a muscle. Start small and grow from there. Start taking one action today … one tomorrow … then maybe two the day after … until you’re taking massive action to achieve the physique and level of health you want.
And truth be told, this isn’t just the “secret” to getting fit and looking great. It’s the secret for success in every area of your life. So once you get into the habit of taking action on getting fit, start using your action muscle in other areas of your life.
It’s so great for me to work with clients that take this action and see what amazing transformations, in all aspects of their life, that they make. You’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish!
