Meet Jack. 50 lbs lighter and feeling amazing!
For the past 3 years, I’ve had the privilege to do a nutrition talk to a local company (NOVO) once per month.
Jack is a guy that works at the hotel where the meeting takes place and he is responsible for setting up the room and bringing out the food for the group of 60-70 employees attending the meeting.
Today, he came up to me and shared that he lost 50lbs in the past 6 months. He did it after getting inspired by some of the nutrition talks I presented, but primarily a talk I did on my Grandma and the power of eating in moderation (She lived till 100 and past away earlier this year). For some reason that talk resonated with Jack and he completely transformed his life.
Besides the weight loss, he no longer needs cholesterol meds, blood pressure meds and his blood sugar is back to normal. His blood panel is “shockingly “ healthy according to his doctor.
The moral of the story—besides acknowledging the hard work of Jack and acknowledging Grandma—is YOU have the power to choose. You can choose to be resourceful and figure out ways to overcome challenges in order to get where you want to go.
You don’t need all the tools right in front of you. You actually have a lot more tools than you think. We live in the information era where so much information is right at your fingertips by way of your phone!
You don’t need the perfect moment. Work with what you have and develop the habit of becoming resourceful.
I think the moment you start to look at challenges as something that is part of life--and not something meant to stop you from pursuing your goals-- you learn to become resourceful... and that is a powerful thing.
Jack simply listened to the presentations in passing while he was working and he made the decision to take action and develop new habits in his life. He started eating healthier, and he started to move a little bit more.
He didn't have a gym membership, fancy food delivered to his home, a nutritionist or a personal trainer.
He worked with the information he received, got inspired to learn some more on his own and turned knowledge into action.
Once Big Mo (Momentum) came along and he started seeing results, he just kept going and developed some non-negotiable rules in his life.
I encourage you to do the same. What is a change that you’d like to make in your life at the moment? Can you develop micro habits on a daily basis that are non-negotiable?
How can you get more proactive about making it happen? What is an action step that you can do today in order to head towards those changes. One step at a time.
