Changing your self image is a powerful way to create dramatic changes in your life.
let's talk about you for a second0:02specifically let's talk about your0:03self-image because your self-image is0:06the mental representation that you have0:08of yourself and it's critical in0:11deriving your behavior and so if you0:14want to change something in your life0:16I think it's really important to reflect0:18on the self image that you all to0:19yourself and the new one that you want0:22to cultivate because if you don't a lot0:25of times it becomes a source of sabotage0:27me give you an example that I mean just0:29so often I working people are they have0:32lost weight in the past until I asked0:34Miffy know we lost the weight but then0:36you put it back on you know what0:37happened and very often I'll hear0:39something to the effect of like just0:41didn't feel like myself and this is0:44really a perfect example of what it's0:46like when you dont cultivate a new0:48self-image to go along with your new0:50behaviors in your new results in a lot0:52of times this is what creates that0:54feeling of attention within you or that0:56feeling the rebellion rebellious miss0:58that a lot of people on diets feel they1:00know they want to lose weight they feel1:01is some part of them that is driving in1:04the wrong direction and so a lot of1:06times that your old self image if you1:08define yourself as say an overeater it's1:12very difficult to define yourself that1:13way and then all the sudden start acting1:15totally different going to create the1:17tension and usually the cell phone is1:20ultimately going to win so what do you1:22do the things that to remember first1:24office that so often the self-image we1:26hold of ourselves is not something that1:28we sat down and designed intentionally1:30it's something that we just kind of you1:33know except absorbed from different1:36experiences we had environment have been1:37people we know and so it's important to1:40stand it no matter what self-image you1:42all to yourself1:43you were always more than that you're1:45always more than that self-image you1:47hold so for example we go to someone who1:49define themselves as an overeater maybe1:51they are having eat over even the past1:54but they're much more than that in1:55certain other areas of life guarantee1:57they have willpower they have control1:58they have the ability to manage2:00themselves and so if they have that2:03ability in other areas they are not just2:05you know an overeater that's just one2:08behavior they have2:09and so you do not want to find yourself2:10that way and so when I first began2:13working with people when people go2:15through my program we always start with2:17beginning to find a self image that you2:19want to have2:20ok so we don't be fantastical great so2:23it's not like myself and with all the2:26mother and the seven-foot basketball2:27player2:28I'm not we want to keep an idealistic2:30though what use the ideal version of you2:33right you as you know yourself as a2:35person what's that ideal version you2:38again if I may overreach sometimes but2:41then other situations that a lot of2:43control you know they have a lot of big2:45ability to get themselves to take action2:47so we want to utilize that we want to2:49pay attention that and bring that into a2:52new self-image and cultivate who we want2:55to be as much as we are just trying to2:58change what were behaving that what2:59we're doing okay and i think this is the3:02missing piece a lot of people's people3:05questioned change is they're just trying3:07to force themselves to add a new way3:08it's obvious you suggest that you do3:10both at the same time3:12yeah change your behaviour for sure i'll3:14be at the same time begin to think about3:16the person you want to be right how you3:18want to find yourself right who you are3:21because again you you're much more than3:23you divide that we're all more than we'd3:25find ourselves at the odd mark on3:27quality than just that and um again that3:31the thing understands that self-images3:32their global that we have kind of just3:34global general ideas ourselves and then3:36we have specific self-images in specific3:39situations and so we want to pay3:41attention to those so what I would3:43suggest to you is whatever area of your3:45life you'd like to make some changes and3:47start by understanding what tell him to3:50hold yourself right what you believe3:51about yourself in that area then ask the3:54question where that believe come from3:55either well-founded it's just some idea3:59you you picked up along the way is it4:01something you picked up because you have4:0312 experiences4:04hey and then begin defining to yourself4:07who do you want to be anyone's cell4:09phone if you want to have how do you4:11want to find yourself and begin to craft4:14and cultivate the the person who you4:15want to be and again from the inside out4:18as well as from outside4:19you want you want to affect both at the4:21same time ok so so think about that a4:24little time to reflect on it and I think4:26you'll find that it's a worthwhile4:27exercise to do okay to do that4:32[Music]
Find out why your brain doesn't like willpower and the best way to create long term change.
the average person makes over 200 food0:02decisions unconsciously every day0:04according to brian wansink is a0:06professor at the cornell food laboratory0:08there's a really important number0:10especially if you struggle to change0:12your eating or lose weight in the past0:14because i think if you look at every0:16weight loss plan already died out there0:18and you can read between the lines but0:20every one of them is telling you is that0:22you need to use conscious willpower in0:25order to change your behavior and i want0:27to show you why that rarely works the0:29first understand how your brain works0:31because it has literally evolved to save0:35you as much energy as possible and to0:37get a great experiment proving this with0:40mice and amazed they put electrodes in0:42their brains to monitor their brain0:44activity and the first time in the maze0:46you would find their brain was spiking0:47all over the place because they're0:48trying to figure it all out but as they0:50consistently went through the maze what0:52ends up happening is the brain activity0:54went way down until eventually was a0:56spike in the beginning when the gate0:58opened and there was a spike at the end0:59when we got the reward and our brains1:01work very similar to this that we want1:04things to be on autopilot because it1:06conserves energy now as a hypnotist1:10I help people utilize the power of their1:12unconscious mind because the unconscious1:15part of your mind is much more powerful1:17than the conscious part of your mind1:19I mean think about it not only does it1:21run automatic behaviors like you're1:23breathing your body temperature but also1:251000 behaviors that you have learned1:27complex behaviors like reading and1:29writing driving a car using a computer1:32mouse brushing your teeth things that1:34you had to learn but now we're1:36completely automatic and to appreciate1:38how much energy saving imagine of1:40tomorrow you woke up and you had to1:42relearn how to get dressed1:44how to tie your shoes how to drive a car1:46where you'd be so tired be back in bed1:49an hour later1:50so again our brain is literally designed1:52to save us energy and to have us running1:54on autopilot1:56ok so now you understand how the mind1:57works you can make changes where they're1:59really going to matter your unconscious2:01mind specifically your habits and2:04routines your belief the decisions you2:08make every day that you never think of2:10out as you start focus on the2:12unconscious things are consistently2:13doing and transforming and tweaking them2:16something really good happened2:18not only do you get better results but2:21you get better results with less work2:23because remember once we make these2:25changes unconsciously we want to think2:28about anymore because now we're using2:30our brain structure for our own benefit2:32we don't want to be thinking about food2:34we don't want to be thinking about2:35weight loss and exercise we just2:37automatically want to be eating the2:39right foods and give us the body and the2:40help that we want and the way you do2:42that is by transforming your unconscious2:45perceptions beliefs and associations2:48ok so think about this stuff reflect on2:51your unconscious idea that you have and2:54I'll doctor
Get more motivated by changing what losing weight or getting healthy means to you.
welcome to today's video so let's talk0:02about meaning for a moment I you know0:05one of the first things almost always0:07ask everyone that I work with is why do0:10you want to lose weight why do you want0:11to get healthy and look for the reason0:13and what you'll quickly find out is that0:16a lot of times people don't have a very0:18clear reason why they want to do this0:20and I think this causes a lot of0:23problems for people make things tougher0:25than it needs to be you tell you0:27personally I was reflecting on this0:29question what is the weight loss mean to0:31me but if you didn't know you know my0:32father died when I was nine and he was0:3454 died of a heart attack0:36now he did not lead a very healthy0:39lifestyle and he was overweight and he0:41had some other health issues so to me0:44managing my way to really about life and0:47death you needed got it means everything0:49you know to me and so when I work with0:52people i get that I find out that weight0:55loss doesn't mean much to them0:57yeah they like the fit outfit or they0:59like to look better but they like to be1:02healthier but all these things are there1:04just kind of a kind of superficial and1:07they're not that inspiring right so the1:09meaning is just not that powerful to1:11them so they're saying you know that1:13with a strong enough why you can always1:16figure out the how and i see that people1:18struggle sometimes we come up with the1:19wire real compelling reason why they1:22want to do this so I don't talk about a1:24couple ways to to find that because they1:26exist i think the first way I think1:29sometimes people try and trick1:30themselves they think they have to1:31pretend and change and make it feel like1:34like health and weight loss are really1:36important and I want to just doesn't1:37feel that way and then I see that never1:39works it works for a little while maybe1:40and it doesn't last1:43so what I found that works a lot better1:44is when you look at your life and you1:48think about what's most important to you1:50great so for a lot of people that a1:52person or people maids maybe the a child1:55your partner parents family friends when1:59you think about the people that are most2:01important to you in your life okay you2:05already have that value system you2:07already have all that meaning that you2:09attach to them okay so we want to start2:10there2:11we don't want to have to create a bunch2:12of you mean2:13we want to start where we already2:15something we're really passionate and2:16would do anything for on you can also if2:20you look at your career maybe we want to2:22make money you want to work and live you2:24know where you want to live2:26I'm so again there's enough motivation2:28meaning there for you to get out of bed2:30when you don't want to in the morning to2:31consistently do things you don't2:32necessarily feel like doing2:34that's if everything we're looking for2:36until you find those things now what we2:38want to do is we want to see how does2:40your your lifestyle your health and how2:42does your weight impact the things that2:44you already are absolutely committed to2:47it because there is an absolute direct2:50connection and so that's all we need to2:53do we need to recognize the connection2:55between you're eating and your2:57relationship with your children2:59I your your healthy lifestyle or are not3:03unhealthy lifestyle and that influence3:05on your ability to make money if that's3:07important to you because it does affect3:10it doesn't it3:10and so you start looking at it this way3:12again it's just a home of the local3:14level of motivation of tapping into so3:17you know if I get tempted by some food3:18of a night of course it happens I'm3:22bouncing off the idea that was life or3:24death for me you know and say yeah i3:26think yes sometimes for sure but I'm not3:29gonna say yes all the time for those3:30foods because again i want to be alive3:33here and again I've done that with3:34everything i want to be alive3:36I want to be a better husband i want to3:38be a better father a role model I want3:40to be able to provide for them to get my3:42own personal development goals and I3:43need my help i need to have a body3:46that's running optimally to be able to3:47achieve those things so weight loss to3:50me is not about being aware of certain3:52pair of pants are looking at an outfit3:54and those things are nice by the way3:56ok but a lot of times it wouldn't be3:58enough motivation for me you know and so4:00what does motivate me is knowing that4:03again this is life or death and4:04everything that matters in my life4:05depends on how healthy i am and you know4:09how I feel physically mentally4:10emotionally and I take those things very4:13very seriously because they mean a lot4:14to me in my life so again it's more of a4:16shift in perspective you have to trick4:18yourself into making into believing4:21those you know it for a fact you know4:23that if you lived a healthier lifestyle4:25he had more energy4:26if you've had more self-esteem felt4:28better about yourself if you became4:30healthier increase your chances of4:32avoiding diseases that would hamper your4:36life at the least and ended at the worst4:38you know that if you live this new4:40lifestyle all those things would improve4:42and you would be on a better track you4:44know this and so I would suggest you4:46take a little bit time to reflect on4:48this yourself4:49thank yourself what is important to you4:50again how does the weight and a healthy4:53lifestyle or the consequently the4:55overweight in the unhealthy lifestyle4:57affect those things you need to draw5:00those connections together because it5:02will help you with your motivation your5:04consistency and ultimately help you get5:06your goal5:07ok but the key thing so so make weight5:10loss make health more important than5:13it's been5:14you always want to start that because5:15women really important to you you'll do5:17what you need to make it happen okay5:19think about that how can I
Discover your habit loops and how to change them.
0:00hey welcome to today's video let's talk0:02about habits now this information is0:04coming from a book called the power of0:06habit by Charles Duhigg and the first0:08one understand is the components of a0:11habit and he refers to this as the habit0:13loop and so there are three parts the0:15first one is the Q followed by the0:18behavior of the routine and then there's0:20the reward that we get out of it now0:22when it comes to the q we're talking0:23about about four basic things0:25the first one is location right so you0:28get to a certain place like maybe go to0:29a restaurant and kind of triggered you0:31to overeat or choose unhealthy food0:34the next thing is time maybe specific0:36times of the day trigger certain0:38behaviors people write that you may be0:41around the trigger certain behaviors or0:43an absence of people are it's always fun0:45when everyone leave that may trigger0:47behavior and finally as emotional your0:50emotional state and I think we can all0:52relate to this one and so those cues of0:55triggers happened and they kick off0:57certain behaviors and it is through0:59those behaviors that we expect to get a1:01certain reward now let's talk a little1:04bit about the reward for a second1:06there's the physical reward which is1:08pretty obvious and I think this is what1:09most people focus on so you know you end1:12up eating ice cream because it tastes1:14good right you overeat you know potato1:16chips and cookies because it feels good1:18to be full right into get that sugar1:22into your body our body likes it so1:24there's a physical reward enjoy of it1:26that that's part of it but i think the1:29big thing understanding is that a bigger1:30part of that reward is actually1:32emotional and if you can start to look1:34at the roared on the emotional level1:36that's where you really start to get1:39some leverage on your habits and so what1:41I mean is that a lot of times you know1:43maybe someone is snacking at night1:45regularly and yet taste good that's part1:48of it but a bigger part is that for them1:50they are getting an emotional sense of1:54fulfillment from that specifically maybe1:56because they worked hard all day now1:57that this is their chance to relax right2:00or you know day today was really2:03stressful and now they're going to eat2:05and just kind of check out a life for a2:07few minutes and just enjoy themselves2:08and so a lot of times the rewards2:11emotionally it can be a sense of real2:13taxation checking out a distraction from2:16stress in your life and so this deeper2:18emotional of thing goin on that is2:21deriving a lot of the behavior2:23ok so how do we change our bad habits2:25and in the book he talks about the2:27golden rule of habit change being that2:29we want to keep the same q we want to2:32keep the same reward but we want to2:34focus on changing behavior in the middle2:36and how we're creating the reward and2:38this is the key and I've seen this video2:41so many times over the years where a lot2:43of people do is they fail can you get2:45rid of the habit but they don't think2:47about the reward aspect to it and so2:49again if we think back to someone who2:50snacks at night if that's your form of2:53relaxation if that's how you can be2:55compressed from the day and all the2:57things you say okay I'm not gonna do2:58that anymore i'm going to get rid of the2:59eating and again they don't realize that3:01they're also getting rid of reward the3:03chances that lasting long are not good3:06because you need that reward you need3:08that downtime3:09ok so we still want to keep the reward3:11we won't keep it down time the3:13relaxation3:14we just want to focus on a better3:15healthier way to do it and so this is3:18where you want to put your attention3:19your energy into it again it's not just3:23going to recognize this just when you3:24start to change it it's not3:25instantaneous it's a consistent process3:28of change experimenting what works what3:30doesn't and continue with it but again3:33the focus is on that middle part in3:34changing the routine and so when you do3:37that again you're still getting the3:39reward and that's the main thing because3:41it's that reward that we're3:43unconsciously focusing on and that we3:45need in order to feel right because I3:48see lots of people where they will3:49change their habits up and starting to3:51lose weight they're feeling healthier3:53but they're under a ton of stress3:55because they have given up their method3:58for reducing the stress4:01okay so we got to keep that reward in4:03there and so what it means for you is4:04that you need to bring some awareness in4:06the process identified to have it you4:08want to change but then break them down4:10into these sections recognize what the4:12queues are so you can prepare for I4:14recognize the routine that you are using4:16and understand that you probably just4:19somehow picked up that routine you never4:21intentionally plan to eat ice cream at4:23night in order to relax it's just kind4:25happened ok and then recognize the4:28reward after specifically the emotional4:30part of it4:31ok what the emotional needs that this4:34habit is feeling for you because they're4:36there and the more you can identify that4:38the easier it's going to be to come up4:40with alternative behaviors that will4:42give you that4:43okay to spend some time with this again4:45in the process of trial and error but4:47stick with it because it's one of the4:48most effective ways to truly transform4:51your habits and the best news is this4:53once you do actually transform transform4:56your having create a new one is that4:58they run on pretty much autopilot and so5:00they don't take a lot of effort they5:02don't take a lot of energy to do and5:04that's the key because we're setting up5:05here for long-term success and so in5:08order to do that we want to make our our5:09weight in our health as automatic as5:12possible and so that's why do is to5:14focus on your habits5:15okay so take some time to think about5:17this and i'll talk to you tomorrow
How long do you think it'll take to lose weight and reach your goal?
hey welcome to today's video now I was0:02working to wait a lot of client0:03yesterday and this is a person I've been0:05working with about six months or so0:06they've lost believe the 25 or 30 pounds0:09so far and have another 30 pounds to go0:12to get to their goal now one thing0:15that's happening is it he found a little0:16discouraged that he hadn't achieved0:19faster results and that he was still0:21trying to figure things out0:23okay so I'm gonna get it still took0:24effort you still trying to figure out0:26you know somebody eating things some of0:28the good habits that he wants to0:29implement and I thought this was the0:32perfect example of a really a deeper0:36problem I see with almost everyone wants0:38to lose weight in this culture and what0:41that is is timeframes I think we're0:44still barred with weight loss marketing0:45and if you look at the one thing they0:47all have in common is how fast can you0:49lose the weight and we all get we always0:52get fast results but if you only focus0:54on how fast you're going to lose the0:55weight0:56you're much more likely to choose plans0:58that are extreme and unsustainable and1:02this is what i see people doing and a1:03few problems with this the first thing1:05is when you choose unsustainable diet1:08and workouts what happens is you just1:10stay stuck in that that initial loop1:12right where you try it you do it for a1:15couple weeks you lose a couple pounds1:17you can maintain that you stop1:19eventually at some point you start over1:21to just keep looping through that1:22initial stage you never grow you never1:25evolved you never really change1:27ok on the other thing is that you get1:30discourage quickly because in your mind1:32you're expecting okay well I'm going to1:34live this way for you know a few months1:37I lose the weight but that timeframe is1:40it's bananas that where they come from1:42either in my client that listen I said1:44it six months ago you decide you want to1:45learn the piano and practiced every day1:47you think you would know the piano at1:49this point after just six months if you1:52want to learn a language you think that1:53six months would would do it you'll be1:55fluent right so so with most things in1:57life we have a longer timeframe for2:00those things where you want to be ready2:01to make money i mean you have to put the2:04time and the effort2:05ok weight loss is no different the2:08problems we just were bombarded would be2:10fast fast fixes and2:13I think they really screw with people's2:14heads because I where most people I2:17think are looking of time frames in2:19terms of length of the weight loss of2:21days weeks and months and I think you2:24need to start looking time frames of2:26months years and decades2:29ok and start planning your long-term2:31success because ultimately the weight2:34loss phase should really be a very small2:36fade forgot how much you have to lose2:38you know if it takes a year or a couple2:40years and you lose the weight but then2:44there's the rest of your life to live it2:46that way they don't lose sight of that2:48and that's what we're always were always2:49focused on the fast weight loss part but2:52we do it's the detriment of of weakness2:54the bigger picture that we want to2:56maintain this way we want to live it2:58this way we want to live with this new2:59lifestyle and in this new body and3:02they're two separate things and so if3:04you've been struggling just looping you3:06just keep going to the cycle of trying3:07to diet losing weight for a little bit3:08put it back on this is part of the3:11reason why3:12ok it's not your fault we're just3:13bombarded with hard not to think in3:15those terms3:16ok but start thinking along the terms3:19and when you're gonna you know when you3:22start thinking about in terms there's3:23two really important things happen3:25the first one is you start shooting more3:26sustainable arm tactics3:30ok so if you're going to start to3:32implement and you have it and you3:33something okay this is something i could3:34live with forever be the thing something3:37I haven't I want to live with for a long3:39time right so getting started thinking3:41more maintainable habit but the other3:43thing is that you don't hold yourself to3:44some ridiculous expectation because3:47that's really important because if you3:49think you're going to lose all the way3:50in three months and then you only with3:52have to wait three months right but you3:55can feel discouraged if you die your3:56nose all the way we going to the guys at3:59the GW lost 30 pounds and here's the4:02important part 2 which may not realize4:04you don't know if you know what you know4:05about my approach laws but on i think4:08you know you have lost 30 pounds and4:12you've done it without any dieting right4:14again it was my mentor that is not a4:16diet right it's very comfortable on4:18elastic month and I've worked with them4:21you know holidays happened and so on4:23during december during the Christmas4:24break he took some time off he's4:26drinking4:26regularly of different things that4:28happened during the holidays and eating4:30and being a normal person4:31ok i said so you've been living like a4:33normal person you've been creating this4:35new lifestyle and your now 30 pounds4:37lighter and figure in a much better4:39position you've got a foundation to lose4:42the next 30 pounds and so again you when4:45you may want to tell him to get ok that4:47makes a lot of sense and it's not his4:49fault again we're just so conditioned to4:50think in short-term on short-term comes4:53to weight loss that it's easy to fall4:54into this trap but that's why I'm making4:56this video to share with you to start4:58expanding it it's really a magical thing5:00you can do so what do you need to have5:02to do this though you need to have some5:04more patient right and that's the5:06challenge on the results are slower no5:08question about it5:09however they may be a little flower5:12begin with but one of the things that's5:13really kind of a paradigm shift for5:15people and all the sudden you can just5:17keep going down great weight loss but5:19you can paint on right that's the5:21difference5:22we want to create something that5:23maintainable sustainable I'm so when you5:26start thinking longer-term I'm telling5:28you it is a magical psychological I5:32don't think trick but but a technique to5:34use okay to change it lots of things all5:36the sudden and um if you start messing5:38around again that thing you have to5:39worry about is that I want to lose5:41weight quick if you can get over that5:42bring some patients into this process5:44you may find that thinking longer-term5:46manage it just feels like a relief you5:49know could you know you know it's it's5:51more real because just like they were5:53the piano the language you know you need5:54more time5:55weight loss isn't about you know what to5:57do and you just need to do it that's not5:59what weight loss is about real weight6:01loss really changing your body is about6:03trying different things experimenting on6:07something where something's don't write6:09when things don't work you can take a6:10step back look I do different try that6:12out it's a process of experimentation6:14and finding habits routines and a6:16lifestyle that works for you and then6:19implementing that and letting that6:21become your routine and your habits that6:23one automatically ok it's not just6:26always going to carve out forever that6:28planted it anyway just it's so simple6:30it's so simplistic during the truth is6:32the way lost there's a lot of different6:34levels to it and layers to it and it6:36requires time it requires effort focused6:38over a long period of time6:40just like anything else that you would6:41learn right anything else that you want6:43to learn again you can't just cram for6:45it and in the a month or two but it did6:47take a longer period of time and that6:49approach just make a lot more sense and6:51it created your chances of success6:53tremendously6:54hey I hope this helps you out have a6:56great day I'll talk tomorrow

Learn how to make weight loss and living healthy more enjoyable.
hey welcome today's video and I want to0:02talk about something a little0:03counterintuitive0:04it's about how to enjoy losing weight I0:08don't have anything crazy because let's0:10say that we've all been there we've all0:11heard of the people that usually when0:13people talk about losing weight0:15it's you know if you'd like the worst0:17thing in the world and it's also have0:18used something they have to do you0:20usually hear people saying I have to0:22lose weight i need to lose weight i0:23gotta lose weight0:25my doctor told me I need better it's0:27almost always framed as a something you0:30have to do and this is a big problem0:33because if you feel as if you're being0:37forced to do it you don't have access to0:40as much of your unconscious resources0:43your willpower your motivation your0:45excitement that can help you truly get0:47the results you want and so it's really0:49really important0:51they've done studies where they have put0:53people into two groups and one group was0:55under the impression that they had to do0:57the things that they're doing the0:58experiment and the other group was under1:00the impression that they could do it or1:02not do it right there specifically to1:04impossible and they were very difficult1:07puzzles the group that felt they had to1:09do it did much worse and they gave up1:12much quicker than the group that felt1:14that they could do or not do it1:16those people felt like they had the1:17choice and so in the head felt like they1:19had a choice they were much more engaged1:22they're much more curious because they1:24felt like they were doing our own free1:25will and so coming back to the weight1:28loss you need to frame this differently1:30and it shouldn't be too hard because the1:33truth of the matter is that losing1:36weight and changing up your life down1:38getting healthier is the number one way1:40to improve the quality of your life and1:43so it's weird that we describe something1:46that can improve our life so much in1:49such negative terms1:50yeah I don't know where how it happened1:53so we need to change that though1:55and so you begin to look at it and begin1:58to use words like I really want to lose2:00weight i really want to eat better and2:02feel good again2:05you know I really want to eat healthier2:06food so i can sleep better and wake up2:09refreshed and I can wear the clothes2:11that I want and I can look in the mirror2:12and2:13happy with myself I can know that I'm2:15living a lifestyle is going to give me2:16the highest chances of living as long as2:18I can with the best quality of life the2:21whole time I want to feel better about2:23myself to think about weight all the2:25time I want to use that energy to make2:27more money to show share more love with2:29my family my you know people are2:31important to me you hate it2:34we do have a choice of how we describe2:35this and how we look at it and when you2:38start describing it in that way you2:40start getting excited and motivated2:42about it2:43well I mean can imagine the process it's2:45tremendously easier2:48ok so don't fall into a trap that that2:50losing weight is horrible thing2:52yeah it's hard don't get undone we're on2:54all change is difficult2:56initially he takes effort energy and2:58focus you get that alot of things in3:01life take energy and focus and we3:03describe positively people go to school3:06to go to work again there's negative3:07sides too but we like getting the check3:09we like we're going to do with the money3:10right so we focus on that part so do the3:13same thing with the weight with your3:15health focus on the good part3:18focus on what you're after the goal3:19right the excitement of it so you want3:22to use all your internal resources you3:24want to be excited you want to be3:26curious about how you can do it you want3:28to be interested in it because it's3:29really fun you know again it's different3:32for each person but maybe want to wear3:33certain clothes you keep focusing on3:35those clothes you know maybe you want to3:37have more energy to succeed in your3:39career so you focus on that and you make3:42you keep thinking about that because3:44that's what you're doing on the flip3:46side anyways3:47instead of focusing on the online how3:49you want to look how you want to feel3:50what you want to accomplish when you3:52feel deprivation you feel like losing3:54weight miserable it's because you're3:56focusing on the food your focus on how3:58good it tastes to eat these foods right4:01so you're just shifting that you know4:03it's still pleasure but you're shifting4:05the pleasure from food to genuine things4:08very genuinely feeling better being more4:12in control and all the rest of it so4:14that that's my message to you today and4:17it's an important one really really4:19important because when you feel like4:20you're being forced you activate that4:22rebellious child within you and when4:25that4:26rebellious teenager within you is4:28activated it's very difficult to say no4:31to these other foods4:33ok so you have to feel like this is4:35something you're choosing to do because4:36you want to do it because it's so4:38exciting and enjoyable4:41it's an adventure it's a fun fun4:43adventure and so when you look at it4:44that way it makes the whole process a4:46lot different4:47ok so think on that and start talking4:49about this is it something that you want4:52to do4:53ok there's something you want to do as4:54much as you'd like to win the lottery4:56for a million dollars you'd like to be4:57healthy and have the body you want you5:00want to do it because it's exciting and5:01it's something that's going to give you5:02a great quality of life a lot of5:04pleasure enjoy ok think about that way5:07i'll talk to you tomorrow
I talk about how to become healthier and lose weight by implementing keystone habits.
hey guys welcome to today's video and I0:02want to talk about habits and a specific0:04type of habit called the Keystone habit0:06now I read about this in the book called0:07the power of habit and I while I never0:11heard call the police don't have it is0:12certainly familiar with this idea and I0:14think it's profound and so I want to0:16talk about it today because I think so0:18often when it comes to changing our0:19health and when it comes to changing our0:21weight we really you know we finally get0:24to the point with how can that I'm going0:25to do it and we want to change it and0:27we're excited and motivated and we want0:28to take everything you know we tried0:30changing all of our eating we try to0:32start exercising more you know we start0:33trying to tell you all of these things0:35all at once and it makes sense and we0:38want fast results0:39it's not hard to understand why on the0:41problems though that usually doesn't0:43work raise it very unsustainable you0:46know I think the one exception is if you0:49go into a new environment you know so i0:51personally I remember I went to my yoga0:53teacher training and I went to an ashram0:55for 30 days and so I'm living a 100:58you know I mean all completely natural1:00unprocessed food1:02I you know there's no electricity no TV1:04no radio so you're going to bed early1:05your mind clearing out on so when you go1:08to a new environment you know maybe you1:10have a better chance of doing yet but if1:12you want to change up your habit and1:14you're in the same environment to change1:17them all up at once is just again it1:19sounds great you're the fastest results1:21for sure but it's very hard to maintain1:23it1:24hey it's going to get distracted or1:25tired of border you know something1:28happens it was a little bit of focus and1:29motivation it's hard to keep all those1:31up1:32so what are the keys don't have it it is1:34one habit that you focus on and as with1:38his name basis for country i'm a book1:40review on this child to do hey he writes1:43that he's don't have it often when you1:44initially Institute one habit it1:46automatically affects others and often1:48needs habit create a chain reaction of1:50widespread change and i can tell you1:53this is absolutely the case for me when1:56I look over you know that the changes1:58that i created one of the first changes2:00i had to make what I just stopped2:01beating a night because I used to just2:03smack all my long you don't let the bed2:05so it is a journey of learning how to2:09change that one of things that came up2:10with that started drinking water at2:12night2:12of eating and so that became my Keystone2:15habits are drinking more water and it2:17was the most whatever drink my life you2:19know it's all this and I became a good2:21keystone habit that i had that you know2:23consistently i was doing that one have2:25it started affecting everything else2:27that literally created this chain2:28reaction and so what I'm saying to you2:31is that instead of making and I think2:34this works both ways that I think not2:37only too hard to maintain we try and2:38change all the habits but the other2:40thing i think almost worse is that when2:42we're off track that were not really2:44thinking about our way to our health2:45when we start thinking about getting2:47healthier or losing weight if we think2:49we have to change all these habitats2:51want it seems like a bigger deal and2:53we're not as excited to do it we're not2:55as they have to do it2:57ok so if we make it simple we're more2:59likely to do that and get started with3:01the whole thing3:02ok so that's what I'm saying to you and3:05it never ends really i can tell you what3:07I'm always looking to add new habits in3:10my life but I'm focusing on one of3:12instituting it getting it to be3:14automatic then moving on the next one3:17you know and I know that the smart3:19strategy because it doesn't take much3:21effort and energy and I know again that3:24chain reaction kind of phenomenon going3:26on it that when you do start doing3:27things like drinking water for example3:30if you start drinking the proper amount3:31of water consistently you know after a3:34week after two weeks after a month or3:36two your self-image starts to change you3:39start to think of yourself as a3:40healthier person and that shift alone3:43create again all kinds of other positive3:46changes for you3:47ok so that that's what I wanted to say3:49to you finally done here again i want to3:51make something practical for you is to3:53instead of changing everything pic 113:56habit and make it simple it doesn't have3:59to be crazy i think that's the important4:00point here on because again it's the4:03consistency beating intensity philosophy4:06it's the instead of all or nothing4:09we want to come all or something you4:11know and so this is how you can do it4:13pinky's don't have it drink more water4:15go for a five-minute walk do a little4:17bit of stretching eat a salad you know4:19whatever it may be for you you know that4:22that resonates with you4:24do that and commit to it and you know4:28even if you're if you're on track or4:30off-track commit to this one habit and4:32it's a mind you know it kind of blows4:34your mind a bit when this is a real game4:36changer when you're you're off track4:38right you're tired you know you're here4:40just things aren't going well you're4:41stressed out works not right life4:43stressful and you're overeating even but4:46you're still doing that Keystone habit4:48and that is a profound moment I could4:50tell you but for many clients and my own4:53life personally that's always a profound4:55thing because again we're so all or4:57nothing to all the sudden become all or5:00something so they were never completely5:02off track anymore you know that's the5:04beauty keys don't have as well so i'm5:06just so many benefits to it i'm a big5:08fan i love i love that book too by the5:10way like i said keeping i'm going to do5:11a book review on it because I'm it was5:13just so good and I think that book i've5:17been teaching my habit for a long time5:18but I like houses think he makes it5:20really makes me make the whole habit5:22idea of what they are and how to change5:24them i think it makes a very succinct5:27but again the main thing being please5:29don't have it so so focus on think about5:31it and begin instituting it today if5:35it's too hard NC today5:36think of something else that's easy5:38enough to institute today alright do5:40that let me know that let me know in the5:41comments you know this works for you if5:43you already have one how it affected you5:44I'd love to hear about it5:46thanks a lot of tomorrow
