“When you have a burning need to lose weight, you’ll see faster results in getting your dream body. Here are two exercises to harness your inner fire.”
Without a true, burning need to lose weight, nothing that is truly valuable can ever be accomplished—except, of course, by luck, and it doesn’t pay to count on that.
Once you have committed to achieving a goal and developed an intense desire, your brain begins to draw into your life the dominant thoughts that you hold in your mind. Success coaches have proved time and time again that your outer world is an exact picture of your inner world.
If you subconsciously focus on how fat you are, your mind will present opportunities for becoming even fatter. But if you have a burning need to lose weight and feel energized, you will develop a stronger self-image—and your outer world (your body) will be affected accordingly.
What is even more amazing is that the stronger your desire, the faster the results will become a reality!
Remember, wishing alone will never bring results in great numbers. Appropriate action must accompany those wishes.
- The first step is to develop a true, burning need to lose weight—so burning that it becomes an obsession.
- Next, you need to create a detailed plan of action for reaching your goals (or have a professional create a plan for you).
- Finally, you have to back up that plan with a level of persistence that refuses to admit failure.
The information and exercises contained in this website are intended to serve as a set of blueprints to help guide you through the process of attaining a heightened metabolism, better health, and a more attractive appearance. Thus, you should use the website as your plan of action for reaching your goals.
Your Need To Lose Weight
Before we go any further, I’d like to share with you an exercise that helped me reach more goals in one thirty-day period than I had been able to reach during the entire year leading up to that time.
I met a man who felt so strongly about this exercise that he instilled it in me. I have to confess that when he first described it to me, I thought it was going to be a waste of time.
After completing it, however, I had a better understanding of myself and my desires. And I had my top four goals laid out in front of me. By the way, the goals that I developed in that process were far different from the goals I had thought were important to me prior to going through it.
The exercise is called Crystallizing Your Focus. That’s because after you’ve completed it you’ll have a crystal-clear focus of what your goals are. And it’ll reinforce your intense desire and need to lose weight.
Whatever you do, don’t skip over this exercise! I assure you, its relevance will become clear as we continue.
Make a list of 51 wishes for your body:
- things you’d like to change a little,
- things you’d like to change a lot,
- your health (be specific),
- small alterations in your appearance,
- the way you walk,
- your strength level, endurance level, energy level,
- your ability to handle stress, etc.
Take as much time as you need to complete this exercise. But try to do it in as short a time as possible. I’ve had some clients who have finished it in an hour. And I’ve had others who had to put in three days of consistent hard work to get through it.
Do yourself a favor, and start when you have at least an hour of silent, uninterrupted time. That may mean getting up an hour earlier than everyone else in the house in order to find the necessary peace and quiet. Do what you need to do to make time for this exercise.
Once you’ve completed the first part of the exercise, move on to the second part, which is far easier . . .
“Time prioritizing” your list.
Next to each item, write a number that represents the amount of time (in years) you’re giving yourself to complete each one.
- For example, if one of your wishes is to shed 25 pounds and you know you can do that in a few months, you’ll write a “1” next to that one. Because you know you can reach that goal in the first year.
- Use the numbers 1, 3, 5, and 10 (for 1, 3, 5, and 10 years, respectively) to time prioritize the wishes on your list.
Okay, stop looking at this website right now, and don’t come back to it until you’ve completed your time prioritization.
Great! Now you’re ready to prioritize the items within each “time category” on your list. Just as in sports or other contests, you can make a basic tournament board to help in this process.
- First, list all of your 1-year goals on one page, all of your 3-year goals on another page, and so on, until you have four pages (one page for each of the four chronological groupings).
- Next, take your list of 1-year goals and complete the tournament board:
- Take your first two goals, draw a box around them.
- Decide which of the two is more important to you, and then write the more important one just outside and to the right of the box.
- Then compare that “winning goal” (the one you wrote outside the box) to the third goal on that sheet:
- Put them both into a new box and choose the more important of those two goals.
- Then write the more important goal just outside and to the right of that box.
- Continue this process until you have only one “winning” goal on that page.
- Then go through the same process and prioritize your 3-year goals, your 5-year goals, and your 10-year goals.
Stop right now and do the exercise.
Congratulations! You’ve now identified your top four goals for your body and your health. I’ll bet you’re a bit surprised by the results. If nothing else, you should be much clearer as to what you need to focus on this website.
Now make a list of all of the things about your life that will improve once you’ve achieved your highest-priority 1-year goal. Things such as:
- the new doors that will open up for you,
- the increased energy you’ll have,
- the richer friendships you may have,
- the more confidence you’ll feel, etc.
Make sure to have at least twenty-five items on your list.
Now do the same for your highest-priority 3-year goal, your highest-priority five-year goal, and your highest-priority ten-year goal. Remember: list at least twenty-five benefits for each goal!
You’ve now completed this exercise and understand what drives your need to lose weight. Next, I want you to focus all your efforts on your highest-priority 1-year goal as you work through all the exercises and assignments in this website (if you haven’t already done so).
Some of the top ones that you should take action on are centered around diet, cardiovascular and strength training workouts, body cleanse, and visualization training. The Weight Loss Plan In 7 Days conveniently combines all of that in a 7 day format. So if you have a need to lose weight, then take action and start the journey on getting your dream body!
