“I’m doing everything I’m supposed to be doing but I’m not losing the weight?!?!?!?”
“I work out regularly & eat clean but the weight just won’t budge”
“I have done extreme…. and things did changed but it was impossible to maintain”.
“How come some people can eat and do what they please and not gain an inch while I just have to look at a bread roll and I am 2kilos heavier?”
“I don’t want to do some crazy diet, I want to enjoy life as well….but at this rate, I am considering going back to …….(fill in the blank of extreme diets)”
Do any of these statements sound familiar?
I bet they do and I have personally used them in the past myself!
On paper, you tick all the boxes. You have dotted all the ‘I’s’ and crossed all the ‘t’s’ but nothing is happening.
I have heard this more times in my career than I can count. And I have personally worked with numerous women who have experienced this.
Now, this is something that doesn’t just happen in relation to our body and weight. It’s a phenomenon that happens in a our relationships, business, careers, love lives…..you name it!
You are doing what others are doing; you follow the guidelines; you take the correct steps but somehow you don’t get to where you want to be. And what makes it, even MORE, frustrating is that when you look around, you see others who are doing LESS, have fewer qualifications/experience, LESS personality/charisma, LESS whatever…..but they seem to be cruising ahead.
I have really taken the time to study this over the past couple of years because let’s face it, there are a countless number of “guru’s” out there who say “If you do this, you will get these results”. And ya, maybe you do get the results but they are so brief, so unmaintainable & so unenjoyable that it’s a guaranteed fail. OR maybe you do do everything “right” and get zero results!
The question remains…..What makes someone succeed at achieving their “body goals” while others struggle so much?
Here’s what I can tell you.
It’s NOT a specific diet
It’s NOT a specific training plan
It’s NOT a special coach or guru
It’s NOT a supplement, shake or pill
It’s NOT will power.
And it’s NOT even about the weight!!!! It is NEVER about the weight. Most women think the ideal weight is what will make them happy but it’s not (read Destination Addiction)…..guaranteed!
Yes they do have an effect on results but only AFTER you address the REAL blockage which is this….
It comes down to a belief system because what we BELIEVE about ourselves has a direct impact on our results. And what’s even scarier, is that our belief system outweighs ANY AND EVERY physical effort you put in.
So before you tell me: “Ok Jody, so what now? Am I supposed to ‘think myself slim’?”…..Definitely not, it will have no effect or benefit to your results.
“But Jody, I don’t have a bad belief system about myself, I know I am a good person who deserves results.”….If that was the case I can guarantee you, you would be happy and satisfied within your body and your results would have manifested themselves long ago. You THINK this about yourself but you don’t BELIEVE it.
Thinking something and believing something are 2 very different things.
And here is the part why most people fail…..
Changing our belief system is harder that ANY EXERCISE OR DIET OUT THERE!!!! 9/10 people would rather try another fad diet, starve themselves, gym for 3 hours a day, buy copious amounts of pills, hell, I bet some people would rather run the comrades, twice, before they start working on changing their mindset. Because to change your minds belief about WHO YOU ARE & WHAT YOU DESERVE, will be one of the hardest things you will ever have to do!!!
HOWEVER when you do……EVERYTHING CHANGES. Not just your body, but your entire life!
Now there isn’t enough space or time to go into this in detail but what I want to leave you with is this.
If you KNOW you are doing everything right, but not achieving the “body goals” you want….it’s NOT your diet, stamina, training, coach, supplement or will power. It is your BELIEF system and until you change that…. you will NEVER achieve your goals.
I believe in this so much that I have even stopped selling “diets and training” programs and my focus is primarily on healing, exercising & changing THE MIND & SOUL so that you can achieve your true body goals (physical, mental & spiritual) which ultimately is what I call BODY FREEDOM (…and I’ll let you in on a little secret….what you “think” are your body goals, really aren’t. They are a watered-down version of who you are born be).
