In the world famous 0 Excuses Fitness System, yours truly breaks things down and gives you the "10 Commandments of Physical Training" (success at it) before anything else.
Before the exercises. Before the workouts. Before all of it, because the mind is always the most important. I've made sure to really emphasize this in the first book on pull-ups as well, one of the most notably tough exercises for people to do right, and also in "Shoulders like BOULDERS!" for obvious reasons.
These lessons and commandments apply not just to fitness, but to life.
And today I'll give you three golden rules of manifestation which most gurus wont agree with - yet those same so called gurus have either knowingly or unknowingly followed these paths, and are not telling YOU because they're telling you what you want to hear, not what you need to KNOW in this regard.
Works for fitness - and life both.
Here it is, if I were to break it down into "three".
There's more, but these three are core tenets of any sort of successful manifestation which I've struggled with at the start my friend, and it's effortless now.
One, let me tell you what it does NOT involve - saying "I am".
It doesnt involve becoming a hermit or standing on one leg in the Himalayan mountains, or meditating for days, or growing a long beard like I am right now.
And any of that self help rot they tell you.
It aint about the so called Law of Attraction. That is a crock if there ever was - it works, yes, but only in its purest form.
It's about a lot of hard work first off.
Second, more importantly. It's about the right WORDS. And FEELING.
Third, and this is MOST important.
MENTAL FOCUS is KEY.
Thats the three commandments in ascending order, my friend.
Not sexy, not what most self help gurus tell you.
Look at the lives of most following those self help gurus though ...
This, my friend - is how you manifest success in ANY Field - fitness or not.
I'll have more on this subject later, but as I literally live a life of "think and it WILL happen" - remember one thing.
There is no magic involved.
It is a rational art and science both.
Dont think you can go out not having done any workouts in ages and think you can start sprinting up hills like Walter Peyton for one.
It aint gonna happen.
Dont think a million dollars will land at your doorstep tomorrow if you just think about it.
It aint gonna happen.
Other hand, you do the work, use the right words, most importantly, focus like a horse with blinders on and have FEELING behind not just your self talk but your bloody actions too - and it'll happen like "magic" almost.
Trust me on this one.
That, my friend is that . . .
I'll have more on this in the future as well.
Thats the update for now.
