Not Getting the Results You Want? These 2 Tips Will Help.

Do you feel like you’re not getting the results you really want with your health and fitness? As I was joyfully practicing my weekly leg workout this morning, I thought back to 2 frustrating times in my life: 1) When I felt like I was “working hard” but not getting the results I wanted and 2) When it seemed like no matter what I did I didn’t get the results I wanted; I felt clueless as to what to do, so I just decided to quit and do nothing. It occurred to me that I did two things that were instrumental in helping me finally get the results I wanted, so I share them with you with the hope they can help you too.

Tip #1. Do something completely different

Prior to figuring out how to really get results, my routine was running, lifting a few weights, and eating processed crap. When I decided I didn’t like the results I was getting from that, I decided to run farther (10K instead of 5K and half marathon instead of 10K). Yeah, that didn’t work. Another thing I tried was to still eat processed crap but just less of it, or maybe mix in a couple healthy things here and there. That strategy also worked about as well as a lead balloon.


When I decided to do something completely different, P90X + Shakeology, all of a sudden I started getting amazing results. If you aren’t getting the results you want, I recommend you do the same. Do something different such as:
  • Enroll into one of my fitness challenges
  • Hire a personal trainer or health coach
  • Enroll into a healthy cooking course
Mix it up with something new, and watch your results start to take off.


Tip #2. Burn the ship

Burn the Ship‘ is a reference to a story from the timeless classic Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

A long while ago, a great warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision which insured his success on the battlefield. He was about to send his armies against a powerful foe, whose men outnumbered his own. He loaded his soldiers into boats, sailed to the enemy’s country, unloaded soldiers and equipment, then gave the order to burn the ships that had carried them. Addressing his men before the first battle, he said, “You see the boats going up in smoke. That means that we cannot leave these shores alive unless we win! We now have no choice—we win, or we perish! They won. Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn his ships and cut all sources of retreat. Only by so doing can one be sure of maintaining that state of mind known as a BURNING DESIRE TO WIN, essential to success. “

By “burn the ship,” I am suggesting that you make a long-term commitment to achieve your health and fitness goal. How about burn the bandwagon? Decide that you are not going to “try out” your new approach but rather you are going to do it and reach your goal no matter what. Before starting, research your new solution to make sure it will help you reach your goals. After you have chosen your solution, make a long-term commitment to it to set your intention that you are in this for the duration. Make sure that your solution includes accountability because that is one of the most important factors your health and fitness journey.
