Growing up I was always the fat kid. I was picked on. I wore t-shirts inside swimming pools. I lacked self esteem. It wasn’t until I was 24 years old that I decided to make a change.
Fast forward 9 months after that decision, I completely transformed my mental and physical health.
My transformation results in 9 months.
– 250lbs to 170lbs
– 34% body fat to 6% body fat.
– Size 38 pants to size 30 pants.
In this post you will discover the 3 principles I followed to achieve 80lbs of pure fat loss within 9 months; these 3 success principles I’m going to share with you will transform your life, whether you are 15 or 55 years old.
#1 TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY
Stop blaming others, it’s selfish. Take full responsibility.
There is no habit more closely associated with unhappiness than the habit of blaming others for our difficulties. You move closer to your solution the moment you say “I am responsible”. It’s difficult to say these three words and still feel angry. It all starts with these three words. Say it with me. I AM RESPONSIBLE.
#2 BECOME OBSESSED
All of the people who made an impact in our history were obsessed with their purpose. From Steve Jobs to the Wright Brothers to Grant Cardone; their obsessions were so strong that nobody’s opinion stopped them. Become obsessed or stay average, it’s as simple as that.
My mentor Grant Cardone has given me permission to be obsessed with success. I want to give you this same permission. Success is your duty! What is success? Massive amounts of whatever you consider success. I have learned from Grant many golden rules, but the one that resonates most with me is that it is never true failure unless you give up. That’s right, you are going to have setbacks, anger, frustration. So what? Don’t give up. If you don’t give up, you will never fail.
Out of the 300+ books I’ve read in the last 4 years, Grant’s book “Be Obsessed or Be Average” ranks #1 on my list.
