Can I ask you something?

Do you rely to heavily on someone else for something that you want?

The reason I ask is because I've trained members before who I felt like were looking for too much.

They would get frustrated when they weren't getting the results they were looking for, and inevitably when we would sit down and talk... their lack of results came from them not sticking to their nutrition plan or making it to their workouts consistently. 100% of the time.

And what I have to explain to them is that no trainer, dietitian, or doctor can do the work for them when it comes to getting in shape.

You see, a lot of times the reason why we fail to lose weight and get in shape is because we never take full ownership of it.

We buy a book on the latest diet...

We purchase a membership to the newest gym in town...

All with hopes that these things will get us to our goals.

But here's the reality of the situation.

It doesn't matter what diet you follow, or what type of workout you do... if you don't fix what's going on inside of you.

In the words of Lauryn Hill...

"How you gonna win when you ain't right within?"

And part of getting right within is coming to terms with the fact that you must take FULL ownership of your health.

This means that if you don't succeed on your health journey...

It's not because the nutrition is too hard or the workouts weren't effective...

It's because you chose not to follow the program.

This Is Real

You will never completely transform your health until you take FULL ownership...

100%

Nobody else...

No victim mentality...

You and you alone are responsible for making the change you desperately seek...

Now here's the thing...

These external services like trainers and nutritionists are helpful in guiding you. So you must approach them in such a way that they are calling on a wealth of experience to help steer you in the right direction, but your nutrition coach can't follow you around and slap the fork out of your hand when you overeat... your personal trainer can't be with you 24/7 motivating you making sure you never miss a workout.

Only you can do those things...

And ultimately that is what a good fitness and nutrition program consists of...

It teaches you the necessary skills to coach yourself... hold yourself accountable.... make good choices.

It empowers you and gives you the confidence to stay the course during everyday life...

Let's say you're at work...

You're in an important meeting where your coworker is supposed to be presenting on an extremely important project for the company.

In fact... the company has been focusing on the very project for the better part of 5 months and it could completely change the companies trajectory.

Everyone files into the conference room and sits down...

And as your friend approaches the front of the room he looks frustrated...

Your boss asks him to begin his presentation...

And he responds with...

"I don't have one."

"What do you mean." replies the boss... visibly angry...

"Well I recruited people from accounting, hr, and sales to work on it and I thought they were going to do it." says your friend

--------

What would you think of this situation?

Would you take your friends side?

Or your bosses side?

Obviously, your friend is in the wrong for the simple fact that they were put in charge of this project and did not deliver. In fact, them blaming others is kind of childish right?

Hopefully you see where I'm going with this...

As leader of this project, it was your friends responsibility to ENSURE that it got done. It doesn't matter what the sales department does if you don't utilize it. It doesn't matter what reports the hr department gave you if you choose to do nothing with them...

None of that matters and those are just excuses for not getting the job done...

Now I want you to put yourself into your friends shoes but instead of a work project its a personal project... and that personal project is your health.

And just like the work project could completely transform the company... your personal project can completely transform your life.

With the work project you recruit accounting, hr, and sales...

With the personal project you recruit a fitness coach, nutrition coach, mindset coach...

You have the resources at your disposal and ultimately you are in control of whether or not you put them to good use.

That's good news because in the same way that nobody can do it for you...

Nobody can stop you once you've made your mind up...

So I challenge you TODAY to take full ownership of your health, and reach your full potential... you've got this.

All it takes is a decision.

Hope This Helps
