The Journey Begins
11 years ago, I was eating fast food every single night and I never exercised.
I remember my friends would tease me about how little I cared about my body, but since I wasn’t facing any major pain staying where I was at, I didn’t see a reason to change.
However, something happened that shifted everything for me to where within a single year, I become a hardcore health nut, was exercising regularly, put on over 20lbs of muscle, and made a *permanent* shift in my habits that’s stuck with me 11 years later.
What caused this shift?
I’m going to give you three very significant insights.
3 Things That Changed Everything
1) Greater awareness leading to caring
At first, I didn’t care that I was eating a crappy diet because I didn’t see the consequences.
Once I read a book on what the bad foods I was eating full of trans-fats were doing to my health, I then started to care because I saw what was happening to my body right in that moment.
It wasn’t a matter of dealing with consequences when I was eighty years old. The consequences of poor skin, lack of energy, and premature aging were *immediate*.
2) Self-image change
Since I prided myself on being a smart guy, once I saw my actions weren’t smart, I made a shift in my behavior to do the “smart thing.”
I also made a conscious choice that I WANTED and CHOSE to be someone that is a fit person. When I chose the identity of being a health conscious person, my actions started to change to match that identity.
3) Action without perfection
I didn’t wait until I had a perfect plan to get started. I did the things I knew would start moving me forward right away like…
Cut out french fries. Drop all of the soft drinks. Workout to a video I found in my parents’ house.
Months later I would later invest in getting a great workout and diet program after a lot of searching for the “perfect” program.
However, I didn’t let not having that (seemingly) perfect program stop me from doing *something*.
