Only kidding, these aren’t magical.
They will work though provided you put in the effort and stop making excuses like you have every year since you found out that excuses kept you safe.
Harsh as it sounds people fail all the time.
Mostly due to their own ineptitude and lack of willing.
You see if you need a reason to do something you’ll find it, regardless of how monumental the task you will find the exact means you need to justify the end.
Keeping this in mind here are your 9 Magical Methods 💪
Make your intentions loud & clear for all to hear.
You’d also find that a very public penalty or forfeit may keep your head in the game, something like you will buy all your best friends clothing for an entire year.
^ Have this written up in a contract that is legally binding, honestly don’t fuck about, actually have a price to pay if you fail because talk of punishment is cheap, make it a real possibility.
Pay someone to get you to your goal, and pay someone that is expensive, literally at the top end of the price scale.
So much so that it requires you to sacrifice various creature comforts and habits to pay for their services, make your sacrifice mean something so that if you fail you’ll know you’ve let yourself down.
3 – Ask children for their opinions
Yep, kids are the best critics because they tell the truth.
If you’re fat a child will tell you, same goes for being ugly, having bad hygiene or sucking at sport.
These unforgiving little buggers are the ones you want to listen to, not people your own age because chances they’re also in a sad state as well and will tell you what you want to hear, not what you need to hear.
Yep, listen to all the things that evoke strong emotions and make you feel uncomfortable because you will always move away from pain.
Being fitness related of course, if people are talking lumps out of your character for no reason then high 5 them with a metal chair.
5 – Stop acting like a child
This means preparing meals from scratch, taking responsibility for yourself and admitting that it’s no one else fault except your own.
You’re not in control of everything in your life, yet one aspect you can take charge in is your physical state, so do it.
Your old fiends are holding you back because you’re ‘one of them’.
Look at the 5 people closest to you, if they’re all carrying execs body fat, unhealthy, excuse making machine then chances are you will be as well.
Find people that make you better not hold you back.
7 – Remove all food temptations from your home
I knew a chap who would always talk about how clean he was eating yet still held quite the impressive amount of belly fat.
Despite his bluster his partner found all his empty chocolate bar wrappers kidding down the side of the bed and made everyone aware in a hilarious social media shaming.
Don’t be the person that lies because you only hurt yourself in the long run by doing so.
If you genuinely struggle and need help them please ask for it.
As mentioned above, asking for help is crucial in success.
It’s not weak, it’s not bad, it’s a bloody good idea.
Finding a group of people that will help pull you up to higher standards is the way forwards, it will be tough, you’ll mentally feel like the worst person in the room because you probably are.
Even if faced with this fact don’t crump like a wet richmond biscuit in tetley tea, you’re worth so much more than that.
Have the same level of faith in yourself that some of us have in you and take the leap, don’t wait and think, just take it.
9 – Listen to people that have been where you are
You’re not along you know.
A lot of people struggle mentally because of their physical state.
It is very much my belief that we live in a superficial world, and deep down I feel you know this too.
As such people need to find a place they’re physically happy before they can make any real progress mentally, this is also confirmed by the science too, physically healthier people suffer less mental strife (better balance hormones, neurotransmitters, etc).
Find people to talk to that have made the journey already.
Listen to their story, hear their struggle, how they got through it and what it meant to them in the end.
You see it’s not being a physical specimen that we truly desire, it’s what comes after that, this is the real goal.
Self confidence & knowing we’re okay.
^ That’s what people want.
None of the above is magical, it is however all relevant.
You should investigate this thoroughly.
