Everything is Fattening If You Don’t Exercise

Also, did you know if you eat it and you don’t need it, you will wear it? Sometimes, in life, all it takes to make a hard-to-swallow circumstance an indisputable truth is an adage.

"Misery motivates, not utopia." -Karl Marx

After all, if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten, because insanity is really just doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.

Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion

Jim Rohn said this. Truly, what good is making a declaration if we lack the discipline to make it happen? You are beautiful and do deserve to be successful, but if you’re not doing the maintenance and groundwork required to remain beautiful and become successful, an affirmation can quickly become cliche.

You become what you think about

When Earl Nightingale wrote The Strangest Secret, it was later called “one of the greatest motivational books of all time.” Why? Even though it is hard to prove that thoughts become things, Muhammad Ali proved that “to be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.” Remember, “It isn’t what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about.” — Dale Carnegie.

Expecting a pat on the back can sometimes result in a swift kick in the ass

A good deed well done goes without saying and if you’re hoping to get praise for a possibly well-deserved accomplishment, you may be disappointed. Losing weight is a private decision. Keep it to yourself… for now. See: 5 Popular Bad Habits That Destroy Motivation

And finally, “Don’t measure yourself using incomplete people as rulers.” – Stefan Pinto

  • Thanks Stefan, I love your work. You motivate me. I have lost 100 lbs more than once in my life and again I have to diet and get the fat off to be fit. Its eating right and exercising but it all starts in the mind. You have to know you can do it and have a mindset to resist temptation and habits. Thanks for your work.
