I really enjoy weight loss shows… This past one was with a 23 year old from Wisconsin who had only 1 arm and he went from 410 lbs to 193 lbs in a year. As I watch shows like EBM and Biggest Loser, I am struck by the fact of how much hope the person receives when they find out they have been selected. It is like they have a new lease on life, the opportunity to get their bodies and their lives back.
The funny (or not so funny) thing that these people believe is they need a trainer like Jillian, Bob, or Chris Powell, to help transform them. In reality everything that those trainers teach them could be learned for free online, or found in my Fit Moms For Life book, or free in my 500 plus blog posts.
Maybe you are just hoping and wishing for a miracle. Wanting something or someone to fall from the heavens and give you the road map to follow. It isn’t a road map you need my friend, as much as the confidence to believe in yourself that you are capable of succeeding, and that you are capable of greatness.
If you watch the episode of this kid, you will see him stare fear in the face on a number of occasions and continue on.
Sure I would love for you to attend one of my programs, or invest in my DVDs, but none of that really matters unless you believe in yourself and you are going to recognize that there will be times fear is very intense, but it is in those times that you must acknowledge it and push past.
That is what I believe the best trainers and instructors in the world do, they help you to believe in yourself when you don’t believe, they help you to stare that fear down in the face, and celebrate together when you push past it.
So I choose you!
I choose you because you are destined for greatness.
I choose you because you deserve to live out your wildest dreams.
I choose you because if you don’t do it who will?
I have seen too many people from all walks of life overcome incredible challenges and transform to let you be any exception to the rule.
Go out there and choose yourself!
