You are now 2 steps closer to knowing what people do a their 10 Habits of Highly Successful Fat loss.
1 – They Write Things Down.
2 – They Say No.
The third habit however is very different from the first two.
If you’ve read any of my other blogs you will notice that I often speak about trying to learn all you can and to never discount anything until you’ve researched it and tried it, however the third habit of these highly successful people goes against my normal advise… and do you know what?
I think it’s absolutely BRILLIANT!
Here it is:
Habit 3: They Don’t Listen to Every Single Opinion.
I know right? It seems counter intuitive, but it is the single most brilliant thing I’ve ever really heard.
Lets look at the facts:
– Everyone will have an opinion on the ‘secret’ fat loss formula.
– There are hundreds of diet books with thousands of methods to lose fat.
– The internet is filled with tips, tricks and remedies to aid in shedding the pounds.
– Everyone’s and expert in their own right when it comes to THEIR body. THEIR BODY… not yours.
The last fact will make you giggle
– Everything works to some degree for a certain light of time.
As you can see, with all of the advice floating around it’s ease for people to get confused. Weight watchers works for some, not for others, slimming world is great for Aunt Mavis but not Lady Brenda and the 1000cal diet will certainly help you lose weight but your health won’t be far behind either.
This is why I really really like the third habit of these highly successful people. They know their own mind and stick with what is working for them.
Simply because a new fad piece of advice comes out it doesn’t mean YOU need to listen to it. It’s the old adage: Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
If you have been following advice that is working for you then don’t change it until you need to it’s that simple.
Once again this useful habit can be applied to your normal life. A ‘helpful neighbour is offering some advice on how to cut your grass differently for a better result (Perhaps you like your grass the way it is.), you can just say “That’s great advice, I shall bear that in mind.” secretly meaning “That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard and I will never use your advice EVER.”.
