"I lack motivation." This is the number 1 reason clients give me for not working out.
Oh, I get it. In fact, I just hit a wall myself.
Instead of the word "motivation" let's use "mindset."
Why? Because motivation changes daily. If you control your thoughts you can control your mindset. Motivation is not so easily controlled.
I had a DESIRE to work out on a regular basis. I lost motivation. I had a DESIRE to stop sleeping in and hit the gym.
I needed to do this for my health and wellness.
But I love sleeping. My old vehicle was using an alarm to help but that was not working.
My conflict was I was getting groggy in the afternoons, having brain fog, and bad headaches when waking up. <I knew my fitness could relieve all of this, but I lacked motivation.>
What if I didn't get back in the gym? I knew I was going to have worse headaches and serious weight gain. And the brain fog was growing cobwebs.
My new opportunity - I get very motivated...
Propaganda is any device, plan, or method by which people can be influenced without knowing that they are being influenced or the source of the influence.
How often do we encounter propaganda and let it draw us into fear? It is so EASY to do in today's world.
I often compare propaganda to pendulums in Reality Transurfing. A pendulum is simply a thought that everyone else is thinking and only wants your energy.
Examples of pendulums are:
Pendulums are not "bad". They can become "bad" when they get your energy and drain you.
Let's talk about how to counteract propaganda and what we can do to find FAITH over FEAR!
From the book:
"I mix propaganda with the news of the world. I have it taught in public and private schools. I see that it...
"Those who control and use their minds escape my web." The Devil in Outwitting the Devil
Control and use your mind - that is the basic premise of Stop the Mind Screw!
In today's video, I discuss a time when I had severe depression. I know a thing or two about depression and mind screwing myself right into the devil's web.
Enter Shary Davis, my wonderful therapist who saved my life. Literally!
She taught me the Victim-Victimizer Cycle and how that even went on inside our own minds. I was in victim and then I victimized myself out of happiness.
I was in major pain. Both physically and mentally.
I became aware of my thought habits and my self-talk and changed it up using a mental diet.
Steps of Stop the Mind Screw: Go from thoughts of sadness and glum to simple thoughts in the zone!
Standing in a federal courtroom, all alone, I hear the news come from the judge. "Yes we will proceed with the eviction."
It was August 2018. I had just been through 8 grueling months of a legal battle for my home. I was misled by 3 attorneys and this guy, Clay Vilt, my last attorney had just let me down.
We had been through an emergency deposition on August 17. It was an emergency because of this very court date.
Yet when the judge asked my attorney what he had prepared for this day, he said, "I have nothing, your honor."
Now I'm not an attorney but something was totally off here. Yes, he had let me down. For $5,000 I got absolutely nothing.
I should have listened to him when he told me to take that $5,000, get a new place, tear off the rearview mirror and never look back.
In hindsight, I do think that the attorneys had all gotten together and decided the easiest way to end this battle was for my attorney to let me down. And boy did he ever accomplish that!

"Either get the vaccine in the next 2 weeks or we accept your resignation." This was the subject of a meeting at my corporate job, that I love, last Wednesday.
I was not vaccinated so this meant me!
I have been with the company for 8.5 years and I was not about to give up my beloved job over a stupid shot.
So I got it. And while I had my doubts about it, I did it anyway. And this blog post explains why.
I was very upset at first. Then the owner of the company met with me personally. I understood her reasoning.
I honestly feel better about getting the vaccine. My mom wanted me to get it too. I see others who did not get it, get very sick.
Even though I trust my immune system I see this as necessary.
I am not anti-vaccine, I am also not pro-vaccine. I am in the middle of the road.
I think for myself and I avoid conspiracies dressed in fear.
If it brings me an ounce of fear I drop it!
If it messes with my chi, I let it go.
I sat with my circumstances before me for a minute. I...
"What have you been eating?" This question is common in my everyday practice as a Certified Fitness Trainer since 2002.
I remember the day I was training one of my clients. His heart rate quickly escalated to the 170s and his comfort was the 120s. I knew something was off.
I told him to stop what he was doing and sit down for a minute.
I asked him what he had to eat before coming to the gym.
He regretable announced that he had a burger, fries, and a regular coke. WTH!
Your food affects so much and it is important to understand what the devil talks about in Outwitting the Devil by Napoleon Hill.
The thing is food is good! And there are a lot of great foods out there.
What one must do is develop self-discipline and stop eating so much.
How about getting a meal you love, taking half of it to-go and eating it later. Instead of eating the entire portion of food at once.
Practice Ho'oponopono on everything you eat. I say "I love you....
"I can't make it today." Those are the words from my client I am about to lose and let me tell you why.
As a Certified Fitness Trainer and Wellness Director at OCuSOFT, I am "free" to the team.
Because I am free they have to make a commitment to themselves for their workouts to be consistent.
They begin to easily "drift" as the devil calls it in Outwitting the Devil.
How does one prevent this? Come up with a solid "WHY."
This is Step #1 in Stop the Mind Screw - "what do you want." Want help with this? Download this simple template that guides you on what you want.
When you have a solid "what do you want" you are very likely to stick to it, especially when tempted.
And I promise temptations will come! Heck, the devil plays on this.
Outwitting the Devil is the best book I have read to date (and I've read a lot) on mindset.
Whether you believe the devil to be real or imaginary, the fact remains, there is an evil force that exists in your mind- for 98% of us,...
