If you’ve ever tried hard to lose weight and get fit you know just how complex and confusing it all can be.
And the harder you’ve tried the more complex it gets.
Well, finally… after years of trial and effort, years of struggling, years of–dare I say it?–wasting your time and money it’s here!
Yes! The one you’ve been waiting for. The PERFECT DIET!
But wait! That’s not all.
You also get the PERFECT FITNESS PROGRAM and WORKOUT!
Are you ready?
Here goes… The Perfect Diet is…
There isn’t one!
Doesn’t exist. No how, no way.
Sorry to set ya up there but someone was gonna do it–or has done it–so thought just as well be me to tell you the truth.
There is no perfect diet, weight loss or fitness program. Unfortunately, most the “experts” out there, on the internet and even TV haven’t received that memo yet. For it seems that at the very least hundreds of them have “the way.” The one and only way for you to finally… drop that “belly fat,” lose that last 10 pounds, or whatever the latest dieting hook is.
Now, I’ve no issue with people believing in what they do. They should. But I’ll say it like I said in and about Strength for LIFE; there is no “the way” to fitness only many “a ways.” And Strength for LIFE, like Body for LIFE and even P90X is “a way.” Not to be confused with “the way.”
There’s only two reasons why experts want to tell you that they’ve found “the way.”
1) They want your undivided attention and that usually means money is involved (not theirs). They want you to buy something from them and follow them. (Similar theory to religion but I digress.)
And 2) They are so self focused, misinformed and in the dark that they actually believe it. They’re insanely certain that they have single handedly discovered the miracle mankind has been searching the better part of a century for.
Personally, I’m partial to the former, #1, for at least I know we both know the truth and money motivation I can understand. The #2 reason I find much more dangerous and fanatical for you never know what else the person is going to be certain of and absolute certainty, especially when coupled with limited perspective and knowledge, is a dangerous combo.
Whatever program you choose, whichever diet you try, your belief does matter. I guess that’s the upside of being a fanatical yourself. Once you know the truth, that there is “no single perfect way” to your goals, you may find it harder to give it your 100%.
Often the expert or guru will wisely invest a great deal of time and effort in convincing you of their path. Not only do they need you to believe to buy but the wise ones know that your believing in the path is important to your success.
This is good, right? Who doesn’t want to believe in what you’re doing? Of course you do. Belief is a good thing, even in miracles.
The downside or weakness here is that usually belief is all product, program or diet focused. All the time is spent getting you to believe in “it.” And any guesses what the problem is there?
You got it… what about you? For ultimately, the belief that will make any diet, ok nearly, or fitness program work is the belief in yourself.
When your belief in yourself is high, when you know “I can” you are always right.
