Today’s post is a terrific message from MY coach – Joe Arangio (check him out HERE if you want to get in the best shape of your life)
I love this message and have “tweaked” it just a little bit to make it relevant for your health.
One of the things that I’ve come to accept is that successful people are weird.
They are different.
And frankly, that’s how you lose fat, get healthy, and slow aging too… by being different.
By taking uncommon actions.
See, if you do what everyone else is doing it’s easier to be what everybody else is… sick, overweight or obese (well, 2/3 of the population is in this category).
To become lethargic and unhappy and unsatisfied.
But if you show up differently, you can stand out. You have a greater likelihood of living the life you desire and deserve.
So think about what your unhealthy friends and family are doing… and be different. Do the opposite.
Be the weirdo, you know, the health-and-fitness “nut.”
Perhaps it’s being willing to do what they’re not willing to do when it comes to prepping meals ahead of mealtime.
It could be getting up early for a workout, which most are unwilling to do (because they’ve prioritized popcorn and Netflix, the night before, over their health).
Perhaps it’s skipping the wine and cheese after dinner, because that extra 600 calories is keeping you fat.
It might be investing in coaching or a doctor when the rest of the crowd won’t.
Look, there are no shortage of ways to be different… from how you train, to how you eat, and get a good night’s sleep.
But most will settle for being the same.
They’ll accept “getting older and fatter” or “just going to the gym” with no real long-term plan of action.
They’ll do what everyone else does and then, predictably, be dissatisfied with their ordinary results.
So be willing to take unusual action.
To commit to being weird on a daily basis.
I know you’re reading this because you want uncommon results. You want your ideal body and life…
…and being willing to take unusual action is one big step toward achieving that goal.
Thanks Coach Joe. Couldn’t have said it better myself…
