🔐𝟑 𝐊𝐄𝐘𝐒 𝐓𝐎 𝐔𝐍𝐋𝐎𝐂𝐊 𝐀 𝐒𝐓𝐑𝐎𝐍𝐆 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐃𝐒𝐄𝐓🔐
I’ve been enjoying our 21 day challenges — so lets keep the ball rolling!⚽️
This time I want to go deeper than exercise or diet.
After all, you already know what to eat. You already know that you need to exercise.
And you already know that there’s no exercise or diet plan out there that’s ALWAYS fun, easy or something you look forward to.
So, unless you have a strategy for developing the mindset of CONSISTENCY, you’re always going to be on the rollercoaster of “motivation one day, apathy the next”🎢
That’s why REAL transformation happens from the inside out.
The body you create on the outside is a reflection of who you become on the inside.

In our 1-N-Done Weight Loss program we focus on 3 key areas of what we call the “Inner Game of Weight Loss”.
𝟐. 𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐀𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭
So many of us see motivation as something we have no control over.
It comes and goes.
And when it’s gone we wait around for the next wave to hit🌊
Yet what if you knew exactly how motivation worked?
And what if you had a strategy for re-upping your motivation on a daily basis?
Where could you be in 10 years?
Could that 1 new skill completely transform your life?
🔑𝟐. 𝐈𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐫 𝐀𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭
If motivation is like pushing down on the gas pedal, then inner alignment is like taking your foot off the break.
It makes success so much easier!
What do I mean by “inner alignment”?
Have you ever gone to a party where you didn’t know very many people?
Did a part of you want to engage, socialize and “let your hair down”?
Yet another part of you just couldn’t do it?
You couldn’t relax and “just be yourself”…
It was like you were being policed by…well…you!👮
No?? Just me?? *whomp whomp*😞
Well, if you can relate in any way, we would call that weird happening “inner conflict”.
One part of us wants one thing and another part of us wants something else.
Is this true of you when it comes to, say, working out? Or sticking to a food plan?
What if you could pinpoint all the inner conflicts that are holding you back🎯 and strategically go to work on resolving them.
Not by repressing them.
But by aligning them — hence the term “inner alignment”.
A mental frame is a meaning we put around an experience.
Just like a picture frame that goes around a photo🖼
You and I can have the same experience and yet we can each take away completely different meanings.
One of the worst frames that’s all too common is the S̲H̲A̲M̲E̲ ̲F̲R̲A̲M̲E̲.
For a lot of people, weight loss is about taking one’s punishment for their sins of worshipping at the cookie-crumb laden feet of the Nestle god🍫🧞♂️
Even worse, shame is so pervasive and sinister that its often used by coaches and athletes alike as a “motivational tool”.
I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve had people tell me that they just need someone who’ll “kick their butts (aka: chastise or guilt them) if they mess up”😕
What if you were selective about the frames you adopted?
What if you adopted a more empowering frame — and it got you to your goals FASTER?
How could you re-frame your journey of self-discovery and transformation in new ways?
Would it change the very essence of the journey?
Would it change the outcome?
Would you gain more from it than simply “hitting a goal”?
👉 Fitness, martial arts, changing your eating habits — these can all serve as avenues into exploring who you are and reaching your full potential.
