Decisions Determine Your Destiny
A prosperous mindset propels your future
People ask me to share my simple steps on how I lost 40 lbs in 4 months.
An essential factor for me was deciding.
The Latin meaning of the word decision is “to cut off”.
A decision eliminates some other course of action.
Now that may sound a little severe and limiting, but it’s not...
Having choices is great, but at some point, if we’re going to get to where we want to go...
We need to make some decisions, and it isn’t debilitating.
It provides freedom from endless options and creates a crystal clear vision.
So here are the decisions I made at the beginning of my journey.
Clean up my diet, get enough sleep, work out consistently, meditate, and focus.
These all sound familiar, don’t they?
There was one more choice I made, and it was the most important...
I determined who I was in advance.
My identity is a person who’s lean, energetic, inspirational, and grateful.
And I speak at conferences where my brand is health and wellness.
I was certain of who I was at this moment, and my subconscious obeyed my instructions.
There was no more debating or second-guessing myself.
A lean, energetic, inspirational, grateful person eats, sleeps, trains, and acts with a razor-sharp focus in life.
By the way, the morning came when I was about to go downstairs from my room to a beautiful resort in Maine to speak to a packed house…
I said a prayer as tears flowed in gratitude.
My dream became a reality!
And it will be for you too.
Decide right now who you are and where you’re going in life…
And the power of your mind will propel you into a magnificent future.
