Discover the life-changing connection between using this one unique tip and achieving your fat loss goals…
We have a very special announcement at the end of this article, but first we want to introduce you to a simple lifestyle principle that will help you CRUSH your fat loss goals.
If you’ve ever had an intense desire to succeed in any area of life, you’ve probably realized by now that fitness and fat loss can indirectly be the catalyst for both personal and business success.
Regardless of what your long term personal, business, and financial goals are, in order for you to enjoy the journey now and freedom down the road, you must make health and fitness a priority.
Let’s face it: you’ll never live the good life if you don’t have your health. It’s impossible.
We have found over the years that most people generally fall into one of two categories.
- A very successful personal and business life with poor health
- A lean and healthy body with a lack of success and balance in their business and personal life
You can probably relate to one or the other. If you have both “locked” in then congratulations. You’re officially ahead of 99.9% of the population and you don’t need this article or this life-changing tip. You can move on.
But if you’re anything like us, this is a constant battle that has to be consistently worked on a daily basis.
In my 20+ year journey as both an entrepreneur and fitness expert, I have struggled with the balance between my passion for fitness and my desire to succeed in business and my personal life.
I’ve had times where I’ve failed miserably and I’ve had times where I’ve accomplished things I never thought were possible.
Soooooo…what was the difference between the successes and failures?
One word: ACCOUNTABILITY
Just look at the true definition and let it resonate for a minute.
1. the state of being accountable, liable, or answerable.
REAL accountability is the key to taking your results to a new level and finding a healthy balance between your personal life, your business life, and a fat loss lifestyle.
After helping and coaching a very large number of people from all walks of life, I have found that we all need to actually seek and find accountability.
In order for you to be successful in business, you have to hold yourself accountable to certain daily tasks and/or large projects. When it comes to being a parent or a mate, we also hold ourselves accountable to spending time with our children and our significant others.
If you don’t have accountability, your business and financial life will suffer right along with your relationships and family life.
The same is true with exercise and nutrition. Most people fail with keeping the weight off because they lack an accountability system. There are a few different ways to do this depending on your personality and of course your personal desire to really get results.
The best accountability system is to hire a food coach or personal trainer. This will not only show you the fastest proven path to success, but also can obligate you financially.
Another great way to hold yourself accountable is to enter a contest or event with a goal or deadline. This positive pressure will help you stay focused on a pre-determined goal. By having a deadline it also creates the urgency needed to help develop consistent habits.
The last method of accountability is partnering up with a friend or mate and committing to weekly workouts. If possible, it’s also a good idea to pay in advance for a series of classes for added accountability.
My wife Karen uses a food coach and weighs in every week to hold her accountable. If she knows she has to report to a coach or get on the scale every week, it automatically increases her discipline level to follow through. I think you would probably agree, this is something we all need if we really want to see lasting results.
The final analysis: There will never be a perfect time in your life to begin developing fat loss and fitness habits. The best thing you can do is seek and find an accountability system that best fits your lifestyle.
Bringing it Home with Real World Proof
In 1998 I spent 12 weeks doing Bill Phillips’ famous physique transformation contest called “Body for LIFE”. The contest required four to five hours of strategic exercise per week and a balanced, fat burning nutrition plan.
This was not only a great way to hold myself accountable, but also allowed me to develop long-term habits that I still use today, over 12 years later.
Although there are many more efficient tactics, techniques, and approaches to use with today’s fast moving science, the basic principles of accountability still apply to this day.
This contest also taught me how to use accountability systems to dramatically improve focus and productivity in all areas of my life.
When all was said and done the changes in my physique were nothing compared to the person I had become through being held accountable.
After being a 1st Runner-Up Grand Champion out of over 221,000 contestants, I realized the power of accountability and immediately started sharing my passion with others.
My first student after this contest was a friend and fellow gym rat named Marty Reddy. I held Marty accountable to our efficient tricks and the results were nothing short of astonishing.
Just take a look at what happened to Marty’s body after only 12 weeks of being held accountable to our coaching.
Now it’s your turn! Remember that your life will never be in a perfect situation to be held accountable. As NIKE says: Just Do It.
