Is Your Belly Getting Too Big?

 

You could be the greatest athlete alive,

Or the most famous model in history

(ehem…Tom & Gisele) and still not

Be happy with where you are.

 

Infidelity stories aside, these two are

Considered to be one of the most famous

Non royal couple in history.

 

Yet if you ask either of them if they’re

Happy with where they are, secretly they’d

Probably said no…

 

I mean honestly, it’s probably what drives

Them both to be as successful as they are today.

Think about it, you have to have some levels

Of dissatisfaction with where you are to have

The motivation to move forward.

 

But where does this motivation come from?

I mean if you had it all along, you’d probably

Be a billionaire with rock hard abs and

Your own island in the middle of the Pacific

That you get to by your own hand made boat.

Right?

 

Maybe…But what our brain says and what we do

Are two different things…

 

So why the disconnect?

 

 

Today, I’d like us to discover how motivation is

 

Helping you get (or not get) what you want in life.

 

I’m sure you’ve had those flashes of brilliant

 

 

So you want to lose a few pounds right?

It can be tough because there are so many things that

Make you feel so good that also make you gain weight.

But the thing is not to focus on what you don’t want

It’s to focus on what you do want.

 

You see, when we focus on what you don’t want

You are actually telling your brain that you do want that

Conceptually your mind can tell the difference between

“Yes” and “no,” but unfortunately, our 100,000 year old

Brains are not equipped to differentiate between feeling

Good and feeling happy (yes there’s a difference)

 

There is a ton of science on this and I hope that we can

Chat about this another time one on one or in my

Private Facebook group Project SELFFY, but for now

I’ll leave you with this:

 

What you believe whether good or bad, is what you

Can and will achieve with action. I’m not saying that

You’re a mindless zombie that can’t make decisions

On your own, but you kinda are.

 

Controlled by your emotions and mindset, the only

Thing we can really do is step outside of our normal

Way of thinking and be present to what we actually

Desire in our lives.

 

Be present to be what you want to be.

P.S. If you feel like your thoughts

Are holding you back they probably are.

I would like to invite you to change your mindset

By first realizing that you have absolute control over

How you think, feel, and act.

To do today or in life overall. I would love to read how

You are making a difference in the world. Talk soon…

Numb (What are you feeling?)

Lately I’ve been going pretty hard getting back into ninja shape. I’ve been eating much healthier and I’ve been working out a lot more consistently.

The thing is though that I’m starting to realize that my body doesn’t bounce back like it once did.

I tell ya, it seemed like just yesterday when I could go out all night, then go to class all day, then still whip everyone on the track and at meets.

That’s not bragging, it’s the sad truth. Kinda wonder what would have happened if I took my training more serious in the past.

But I digress…

You see chico, I’m tired of not paying attention to my body. Too often now, the first thing that we are prescribed is something that handles acute or pressing issues instead of the underlying cause.

It’s like the general theme in everyday life now is to sedate yourself enough for the next 24 hours to get you through the day.

To ease the pain of not doing exactly what we want to do

Lighten the pressure of not being exactly what we want to be

Dissuade ourselves from feeling bad because the things we do are not fulfilling

Enough!

I want to feel something dammit! So I’m throwing away my Ibuprofen as I write this.

Now I’m not crazy, I’m not just gonna walk around in pain all day now (at least I hope not)

But I’ve been listening to a few books on tape and watching a few seminars on meditation. I think I’m ready since I’ve read a few articles on how to do it, because honestly as recently as 3 weeks ago I probably knew as much about meditation as this guy:

Anywho, the whole lesson today is here that your body never lies. Pain, fatigue, weight gain, these are all things that you just can’t fake. You have to deal with the underlying issue or the problems will just keep coming back.

Believe it or not, I know you have some issue that you are dealing with because we all have something.

I’m dealing with a new found interest in meditation.

How are you dealing?
