the Powers Within Your Own Mind That Will Have You Achieving
Amazing Results in Weight Loss and a Life of Joy and Blissful
Friday 11:15 a.m
know your time is valuable, but I have a bit of explaining to
do and would appreciate your patience for a moment because...
need your help!
have held the release of a new book that is intended to reach
a great many people and need experiences from people like you
to help them.
see I believe weight loss is not so much about what you eat,
diet tips, how often you exercise, nutrition or the program
you use, it is a product of your mind.
the book explains in simple language about your mind. How it
works and how it comes to think about things. How it has taken
you to the point in your life that you are at now. How it has
made decisions that have affected not only your weight, but
also your health, your financial status, your working life,
where you live and even your relationships.
decisions that you look upon in hindsight and wonder "why?"
book is also about giving you action steps to overcome those
unconscious decisions that can put up invisible barriers in
your life, allow you to break free and attain the happiness
and joy you deserve.
it comes to weight loss there are many people who jump from
one diet or exercise program to another, can't seem to lose
weight no matter how hard they try or if they do manage to lose
weight will put it back on not long after.
this point in time you may find it easier to blame yourself
when you fall short or give up on a goal. What would you usually
say to excuse it? "I will never have the will power lose
weight", "my genetics make it harder for me",
"I just don't have the time to do it". Or you could
blame someone else - "I was ripped off by the one who sold
me the program
I'm too busy to diet
this new fancy
program is really the answer, if only I could afford it
another serving of cake won't hurt, everyone else is eating,
I can run it off tomorrow".
this can happen one too many times in your life and the 'pattern'
may be the same in a lot of things you do.
see we all have 'patterns' that are run by our sub-conscious
minds to keep us in that familiar, non-scary place called our
pattern that makes you eat excessively may be the same pattern
that makes you spend money raking up huge credit card debt.
Or the pattern that makes you give up on a diet when you are
so close to your goal weight is the same pattern that makes
you sabotage a relationship when it could develop into something
if you have read this far I would like to say two things to
of all, thank you for sticking with me. Secondly
can only assume that that you are at a point in your life that
may have you looking for a change, questioning choices or wanting
answers to the negative patterns that plague your life.
it may seem hard at times, you are actually at a good point
in your life because
is said that recognition is the first step to change.
if you have previously or can now recognize your pattern, that
is the kind of help you can give by sharing it with others and
I'd invite you to go to the form at the bottom of the page where
you can fill in your story.
you would still like to help but are struggling to get my point
I will detail a few examples from the book in the hope that
it further explains what you can offer:
and her abandonment - Amber is the younger of two girls
by about ten years. She grew up in a happy, loving family that
liked having company over to entertain and party.
parents were both from large families so the parties would often
have uncles, aunties and cousins at her house. Problem was that
while all the merriment was going on, Amber who was the youngest
by far often felt that she was alone or left unnoticed.
would leave her either playing cute, acting out for attention
or consoling herself in a quiet spot in the house with sweets
and other party food.
seemed normal and Amber grew into what appeared to be a confident
and carefree woman.
came at moments when she felt anxious
those times where
the feelings were familiar to the abandonment feelings of her
childhood and she would console herself with food.
that Amber is a little older her eating has made her conscious
of her weight and that makes her anxious and the cycle of consolation
with food continues.
'pattern' is revealed in her need to console these anxious feelings.
What she initially did with food she also does with credit cards
and her 'comfort shopping'.
way to console her anxious feelings is to act out or be over-confident
as she did when she was younger. This may have appeared cute
when she was a child, but can make things tense when around
Henry and his habit - from as far back as anyone can remember,
Henry was a boisterous child. The easiest way to quiet down
and satisfy Henry was to give him exactly what he wanted!
instant gratification became Henrys habit.
of their ideal of love and care, Henry's parents would offer
him food as a sign of affection and toys or money as the 'cure-all'
if he was happy, sad, confused or angry.
physical signs of affection were not the culture in Henry's
and sporting as a child, now that Henry is older and busy with
life his use of food as the instant fix when he needs comfort
has left him with a weight problem.
'pattern' also has left him with a credit card debt and a string
of failed relationships as instant gratification is not sustaining
in the long term.
James' story - possibly the most difficult and disheartening
of all obstacles to overcome is one you cannot see. A silent
and sneaky opponent that gets a hold of you long before you
realize it. James' story is about just such an issue and something
that a great majority of people have as a part of their lives.
James has never been homeless, he hasn't been bankrupt or desperately
down on his luck. He did ok in school and was able to easily
get good stable work and earn an average to good income.
has never really had major health issues. He hasn't been to
hospital, had a broken bone or taken longer than a week off
school or work.
relationships are good and consistent, his children appear to
be well balanced and he always felt that he had a good relationship
with both his parents.
was never abused or molested as a child. He wasn't bullied at
school or made to feel different in any way.
everyone I suppose, there was fun with family and friends, even
the odd fight or two. So there were good days and bad days,
average days and memorable ones, nothing he thought would require
therapy or sessions of self discovery.
taking into account that things look better when you are looking
back on them, the only drama in James' life were mainly on the
television or in movies.
was never a sense of 'lack' in James' life, but by the same
token there wasn't an 'excess'. He always seemed to have enough
of what was needed - love, health so wealth.
James senses something. It's just a feeling, a subtle feeling,
that something is not quite right.
has noticed that he has put on a bit of weight and wants to
do something about it, but not matter what he tries he cannot
get the energy, the consistency or the drive to get any results.
prompted James to have a look at himself and he didn't like
what he saw.
weight, his finances, his relationships
whatever he wanted
to better about himself, even with the best of intentions, he
could not make any improvements.
had the seeming 'non-problem' that many of us has. The familiar
surroundings that James has always been in, his comfort zone,
is just so comfortable that he has never needed the necessary
drive or effort to gain that little bit extra in life. And now
that he really needs that energy he cannot produce it.
none of these stories are very remarkable or cause a great deal
of hardship to those involved. No different to the normal day-to-day
experiences that you or I might have and in that way are easy
to relate to.
any of these stories seem familiar, remind you of yourself or
someone you know?
they help you think of your own circumstances?
you find you over eat to mask a feeling? Do you often neglect
to exercise or eat healthy as you 'busy yourself' with mindless
tasks to disguise an emotion?
you really just scared, scared of failure or even success because
of the ridicule or attention you might receive?
have you just become so 'unaware' of yourself that you find
yourself in a familiar place that is not so comfortable?
important side note: This is not about blame. Blaming someone
else for your current circumstances, as I believe blame takes
the power away from you. This is about understanding and awareness
of how you are which is a much more positive and capable position
to move forward from.
we can have many patterns, both positive and negative, but it
is the negative patterns that inhibit our growth and possibilities
that we want to become aware of work with/work out.
that all said, if you can now recognize your own experiences
I would really appreciate it if you would take a moment to let
me know what your "pattern" (or patterns) may be.
If something doesn't come directly to mind I'd invite you to
add this page to your favorites and have a think about it. I
can guarantee that your story will really help someone else
looking for answers.
