In this video I talk about how important it is to be inspired by the actions you take to get to your weight loss goals as doing anything you don’t like will work against you. By writing a list of everything you think you need to do to get to your goal (exercise, diet, hydration, habits, sleep and meditation/visualization) you can go through each item and determine whether you are really inspired to take that action or not. If not, you need to eliminate that action, find another equally effective action that you like or become inspired by that action. One way to change how you feel about the action is to make a list of the benefits and results those actions would provide. By doing this you can see more of the positive end results this actions would produce and that might help you to get excited about the action. If not, you at least have a template that would allow you to find a more inspiring action that has similar benefits and results. Don’t waste your time and effort doing something you aren’t inspired to do! It’s just not worth it!

In this video I talk about how exercising and eating well are reflections of someone who cares about themself–not just what they look like but how they feel about who they are. In fact, the activities (or lack thereof) that got you into your current body predicament are more than likely perfect reflections of the way you have been treating yourself mentally and emotionally. Someone who beats themself up, feels inadequate or not good enough resonates with being lazy, eating unhealthy and things that got your body looking and feeling negative. Exercising and eating nourishing foods are things someone who cares for themself does. This is why when someone tries to take actions of exercise and eating well while they feel bad about themself often fail to either make significant changes or the changes they do make don’t stick for long. Be the person you want to be first then take actions that resonate with that person.

In this video I talk about how to take your end-result goal and why you want that goal and give it more life by adding more to it. Knowing what you want and why you want it will help to establish a good base for daily visualization, which is important in helping to reprogram or rewire your brain so it has a strong program to follow. By adding thoughts about what you will be doing, hearing, and wearing once you are at your goal will help to give depth to your vision. The more time you can spend thinking about what you want with great visual imagery the stronger the neural networks in your brain will be surrounding this subject. The stronger the idea of what you want is in your head the more it becomes a reality in your experience. You are simply teaching your brain what to look for. When you look for success it’s much easier to find it!

In this video I talk about how if you lack the belief that you can get to your goal in the time you wish then you won’t get there. If you ask yourself why you lack belief you will see that you have a story surrounding a limiting belief. This belief was more than likely picked up from an unreliable source–whether it was yourself or someone else, it was someone who didn’t fully understand the implications of one’s thoughts and emotions on the body and subconscious mind. I offer some questions to ask yourself about where those beliefs came from to challenge their validity as well as another strategy to help you find success in other places. The more you believe you can achieve your goal the better state your body will be in–energetically, emotionally and chemically–thus, allowing for more effortless change. When you lose the resistance with your thoughts, beliefs and emotions, you will lose the resistance to change!

In this video I, once again, talk about how important it is to make peace with your current body situation so you stop giving life and energy to the problem. I also provide some simple questions that are aimed at challenging the story that is causing your negative emotion in hopes that you can make peace with the problem and leave it behind. These questions are based on the idea that your body is not causing your negative emotion, but rather, it is your interpretation of your body that has you feeling bad. Feeling negative emotion is supposed to get your attention so you can identify when it is time to shift your focus–it’s just that most of us weren’t taught how to challenge our BS stories. Negative emotions also helps us to identify things that important to us and show us two points of relativity–that is, the problem and the solution. The question is, are you going to keep your focus on the problem or shift your attention to the solution that was born out having had the problem in the first place?

In this video I discuss how important it is to think more about where you are going (your goal) than where you currently are. This means you have to not only give time daily to visualizing and focusing on your goal but to train your brain to look for evidence of success. Rather than looking to see if what you don’t want is gone, you want to train your brain to see if what you want is starting to appear–even if it is something small like better looking toes, looser clothes or moving easier. This shift in focus will cause you to activate a program that will be in line with what you want because you always get what you focus on the most. Where you are is a perfect reflection of where you dominant focus in regard to your body and health has been. Look forward and you will move forward!

In this video I talk about how a process that will help you properly create and follow through with New Year’s Resolutions like losing weight and quitting smoking. Focusing on trying to eliminate a problem will only give more power to the problem. Making peace with the problem, knowing what you want as an end result and identifying the true emotional payoff will help you succeed with the changes you desire. I also offer a bonus technique that can be used to trigger a subconscious coaching process so you can allow coaching to happen without your conscious effort.

In this video I discuss how most people are investing time, effort and money into fixing the problem of weight loss or pain (or any subject for that matter), instead of investing in the solution of being fit, healthy, mobile, stable, etc. Taking action while you are trying to rid yourself of a problem causes your brain to look for more of the problem. In order for you to see if your problem is gone you have to associate with the problem, which causes your brain and body to react as if it was happening in that moment since your brain responds to images in the same way it responds to actual events. The best way to get where you want to go is to invest your time, effort and money into where you want to go, not from where you want to leave.

In this video I talk about how important it is to go beyond setting a goal (knowing what you want) and being emotionally invested in the goal (knowing why you want it–emotional payoff) by spending time each day to focus on what you want while evoking the emotionally payoff. Doing this will help create new neural pathways relative to what you want but it has to be done daily for at least thirty days to effectively create a strong neural network that will trump the old program that got you where you currently are. Miss a day and you just might start your thirty days over.

In this video I talk about how there are different levels of hunger and how understanding them may help when choosing to eat something you may think is not so good for you. Rather than feeling guilty about eating something you want, take a moment to let other levels of your hunger be fulfilled (like eye hunger or heart hunger). Not only would you enjoy your food much more and feel satisfied with less food but you, as a whole (chemically, energetically, physically), will be in a higher state, which will allow your body to be in the best state possible to deal with the potentially “bad” food. If you are going to eat something you think is “bad” for you it is best to let every aspect of your senses and body to participate in the eating process and be fulfilled. Eating is more about being fulfilled than filled.
