The green image you see above is me.
My skin wasn't really green.
I just thought it looked cool, so...
I am at 3.8% bodyfat in this image.
I was 42 years old.
This physical condition happened AFTER I CHANGED.
I changed my MINDSET.
When I changed my Mindset - I changed my RESULTS.
It has been said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different RESULTS."
Usually this quote is attributed to none other than Albert Einstein...
It doesn't really matter who said it first.
But if Einstein would have heard someone make that remark, I'm sure he would have agreed.
If it isn't working, then stop.
It's time to CHANGE.
It was just before I ended my nine year term of service (ETS) with the U. S. Army.
It was the Fear Into Power Weekend Experience - The Firewalk.
Firewalking is an ancient ritual practiced by different cultures around the world to demonstrate strength, courage and faith.
As the ultimate metaphor for working through life’s challenges and obstacles – and our own fears and insecurities about them... it's pretty awesome.
And could be dangerous.
IT'S TIME TO CHANGE.
I remember being onstage with Tony Robbins at that Firewalk Event in Atlanta, Georgia.
Tony looked at me and then looked out at the crowd of around 500 people.
As part of the preparation for us to walk across those red, hot burning coals, Tony said, "If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always gotten."
I wanted to experience incredible RESULTS.
So I changed.
in 1981, Narcotics Anonymous issued a pamphlet.
Within that pamphlet were these words:
"Insanity is repeating the same mistakes and expecting different results."
The same message.
Tomorrow is Ground Hog Day - February the 2nd.
There just might be some of you who are NOT getting the RESULTS you want.
Do you want the same RESULTS you've been getting - over and over again - and continue to find yourself in a frustrating, self-defeating loop of the SAME unfulfilling, unsatisfying RESULTS?
Remember: It was ONLY when Bill Murray (Phil Conners) made the decision to STOP doing the same things over and over again every day.
He stopped making ILL, INEFFECTIVE CHOICES.
He made the decision to CHANGE.
But not just any change: He decided to IMPROVE.
And when he made that commitment - he was FREE from the repeated HORROR of his OWN BAD CHOICES.
And it's FREE.
Think about it.
Do something about it.
