Success, what they don’t tell you

We have those who do, those who don’t, and everyone else.
Where do you fall?
Morning All,
Have you ever wondered why some people succeed where others fail?
What is the reason for it.
Is it because of their upper hand starting in life, the people they associate with, good luck or perhaps some divine intervention?
It might be some or all of those reasons, or maybe, just maybe it could be the simple truth that they just wanted it more then everyone else.
Have you ever considered that?
When it comes to achievement this is often how it looks:
Initial success
Initial praise
Initial praise fades
Plateaus begin to appear
Get ready butter cup things are about to get hard
Dues paid for the require amount of time
More dues paid
A few more dues
The last couple of dues
Long term life changing success
The part people forget to tell you is that to achieve anything you need to be prepared to work for it and this important little gem:
Now it’s fair to say that not everyone will survive, that’s just a sad truth. Did you know that sometimes paying your dues can take you a lifetime, just something to remember. 
This is where some introspection is required.
Do you have what it takes to weather the storm and do what needs to be done or not?
If the answer is ‘you don’t’ it’s okay, put that endeavour to bed and move on, not everyone is meant to succeed after all.
However, if you’re that rare individual who knows they can survive and do what needs to be done then you brave the storm, then once you’ve given all you have you come out the other side and are welcomed/rewarded for your efforts.
Congratulations, you succeeded.
I would love to say that everyone will succeed, I can’t, they won’t.
Which side will you end up on?
The one looking to the horizon of wishes and dreams or the one who makes it past the horizon and sees what the other side has to offer?
Your choice.

The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Fat Loss

I hope all of you who are reading The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Fat Loss are learning lots, this is because the Habits are now about to get more interesting.

Here is another recap of the first 5:

1 – They Write Things Down.
2 – They Say No.
3 – They Don’t Listen to Every Single Opinion.
4 – They Use Common Sense.
5 – They Make Their Own Meals.

Time to Start the next habit:

Habit 6: They Avoid Looking RIGHT At Snacks.


Don’t be, I shall explain how this habit works and it’s reasons. Everything will become clear in a few short minutes of reading.

Everyone loves a good snack, but do those successful people avoid snacking too much?

There is nothing wrong with a good snack, however, one can become two, then three and eventually eight.

Snacks a devilishly moorish, and with good reasons too. They are made to be this way so that we can’t just have one, we must have more.

What I have noticed is something that leads people to snack more than is necessary.

Look at your snack draw at work, or where you put the bag of nuts, sweets or biltong.

Is your snack of choice on the right hand side of you?

If the answer is yes you will be lead to you snacking more. This has been discussed in several psychology articles we have read along with a couple of books. Have you ever noticed that the sweets, magazines and special offers at check out stands are on your right? You will now.

There seems to be some inherent connection with the right hand wanting to pick up what ever is on it’s side.

While there are no specific studies on this subject, the simple observations and notes made by various psychologists lead us to feel there is defiantly something more to it.

Yes it might sounds crazy, but all we are asking is for you to try moving your snacks over to the left draw or your left hand side and see what happens.

This is a little known habit used by those highly successful people who started out just like you.

The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Fat Loss

This is the half way point, the fifth habit practiced daily by those who are highly successful in not only achieving but sustaining their fat loss.

Just incase you missed the first four habits, here they are again:

1 – They Write Things Down.
2 – They Say No.
3 – They Don’t Listen to Every Single Opinion.
4 – The Use Common Sense.

Time for number 5.

Habit 5: They Make Their Own Meals.

I am not just talking about food preparation for evening meals, I am talking about each an every meal and it doesn’t take as long as you think either.

Apart from the obvious benefit of steering clear of many common processed foods, making your own meals also means you will get lots of nutrient dense meats/vegetables overtime you sit down to eat (chances are you will also end up eating more fibre without trying too). You can eat your favourite meal more than once a week if you wish.

When a lot of people think about making meals or preparing food they picture a person stopped in the kitchen slaving away for hours on end, but this isn’t the case. More often than not you will be done within an hour as you get more efficient.

Don’t see making your own meals as a chore, see it as a chance to experiment and try different styles of cuisine.
