Most FitPros would never dare say what I’m about to say to you right now.

It’s not that they don’t care, or have your best interests in mind…

It’s just uncomfortable territory.

As you read through this take the time to “think” about whether or not these things have held you back, or hindered your goals, like they have mine in the past.


#1: Guilt

Guilt-driven people are manipulated by bad memories.

They allow their past to control their future.

A perfect example is the guilty feeling you have right after you eat food that doesn’t serve your goals.

We’ve ALL done it!

If you’re one of those people that holds onto your food guilt, or any other guilt, LET IT GO.

Yes, we are products of our past, but we don’t have to be prisoners of it.

Get up tomorrow, dust yourself off, and get back in the fat loss game.


#2: Resentment and Anger

Listen to me – those folk that have hurt you in the past cannot keep doing it unless YOU hold on to the pain and resentment.

Worry and resentment are two emotions that are a total WASTE of your time,

but if you’re not careful, they can consume you and stop you from achieving your fitness goals.


If you have frustrations boiling inside you, get to MDF and take it out on the punchbag

Exercise is the #1 source of emotional renewal in your life.

Don’t EVER forget that.


#3: Fear

Fear driven people often miss out on great opportunities because they’re afraid to take any risks.

Instead, they play it safe and avoid taking chances to maintain the status quo.

Here’s a secret from me to you to help you live a better life…

Do your feared things first.

For example: Do you hate exercise?

Get up first thing in the morning and get it done!!!! … or at the very least get it out of the way as soon as possible after you start your day.


Consistent exercise will increase your confidence and self-esteem AND help overcome your fears faster than you could ever imagine…. that’s a FACT 🙂


#4: Materialism

The drive to always want more “things”, or what I call BSO’s (Bright Shiny Objects), is part of human nature because we think it will bring us more happiness or make us feel more important.

In reality, possessions only provide temporary happiness.

Remember, self worth and net worth are not the same.

The most valuable things in life are NOT things.

That’s why losing weight and getting healthy is so much more rewarding than buying a new car, toy, or house.


In short?

If you let ANY one of these control your life, you’ll NEVER achieve your health and fitness goals because of the emotional baggage that’s holding you back.


I know from this from firsthand experience because all of these have over my life, at some stage.

When you really stop and think about the grand scheme of things, we’re just seconds on the clock that we call time.

That’s why it’s so important to dive into uncomfortable territory and talk about these emotions that really drive our lives.

“It’s not which way the wind blows that determines your success or your future. It’s the direction you set the sail.”
