Stop Being A Tweaker!
You’re All A Bunch of Tweakers!… Excuse Me?!:
That’s right… I said, “Tweakers!”
I’ve worked with over 600 of you in just the year 2018 alone…
There are two things I’ve determined as irrefutable fact. The Top 2 trends I have seen in virtually every single client…
Obesity is an Ego Problem.
You’re all a bunch of “Tweakers.”
I want to be clear; both of these items work synergistically and hand-in-hand…
They feed on one another in the worst ways possible…
Obesity is an Ego Problem!
This is why I say if I can’t fix your mindset, there’s no reason for you to switch to Clovis… You will fail.
Because Obesity is an Ego problem.
We need to fix your mindset first.
I need you to Unlearn everything you thought you knew and Relearn the accurate information that will empower you to live a better life.
I need to fix your mindset before you can ever begin to pursue a life of meaning and fulfillment.
I Had To “Trick” You To Get You Here:
The problem is… In the beginning, you were all so focused on “weight loss” that I couldn’t mention a word about mindset or Ego or you would have never consumed a moment of my content.
Everything I said to you had to be
“Lose 10 pounds in 1 week!”
“Lose 30 pounds in 30 days!”
“30 Days to Rapid Fat Loss!”
… and on and on.
My first every E-book was called, “The Simple Slim-Down: A Guide To Rapid Fat Loss.”
Why is that?!
Well, because you were all married to your ideas… You lacked even a baseline level of self-awareness to understand the root causes of your weight problems…You had blinders on!
We have an Epidemic in America that I call, “lack of self-awareness.”
People are brainwashed and 100% married to their beliefs, and they don’t even realize it…
Dogma is everywhere. Challenge peoples’ beliefs and they see it as a personal attack on their character… I want to be clear:
- There is nothing on Earth more silly than thinking your beliefs define you as a human being.
- You cannot attach your identity to ideas
- I assure you, you very rarely have a thought, opinion, or idea that is 100% original and your own.
Thoughts and ideas are put into your heads by others!
Tony Robbins has one of my favorite quotes:
- “All suffering begins with a focus on the SELF.”
What Is Ego?:
Tricia Nelson was a guest on my Podcast and is a Best-Selling Author. In her book, “Heal Your Hunger: 7 Simple Steps to End Emotional Eating Now,” Tricia outlines the following examples, all of which are manifestations of Ego:
- Low Self-Esteem
- Taking things personally
- Comparing ourselves to others
- Seeking approval from others
- Feeling superior to others
- Wanting credit for your actions
- Putting people down and gossiping
- Showing off
- Being a know-it-all
- Trying too hard to be funny…
These are all examples of Ego.
Most people want their new Diet Plan to work… so they can inflate their Ego.
So they can brag to people about the weight they lost and prove how much smarter they are than all of their fat friends…
They’re always looking for the next best thing… To prove their worth to others!
And the marketers are happy to oblige with constant shiny new things…
You Were Brainwashed:
Think about our collective experience with the world of fitness and nutrition…
- Whole 30 – 30 Days
- 14 Day Juice Cleanse
- 21 Day Sugar Detox
- P90X – 1, 2, and 3 – 90 Days to get in the best shape of your life!
- Insanity – 60 days to get in the best shape of your life
- Insanity Max 30 – 30 minutes per day for 60 days
- Beach Body 80-Day Obsession – 80 Days
- 30-Day Keto Challenges
- 30-Day Paleo Challenges – The first Paleo Challenge I ever did was 30 days
- 30-Day CrossFit challenges
- 30-Day Yoga Challenges
- People are even doing 30-day squat and pushup challenges on their living room floors
All with the promise of results in very little time…
Nothing is long-term, and certainly, nothing is permanent!
I mean, god forbid you adopt a healthy lifestyle FOREVER, right?!
What This Means for Clovis:
This means that you come to me with little to no patience or attention span…
This means constant “tweaking.”
It means most of my correspondence with clients is spent telling them NOT TO CHANGE ANYTHING!!!
People will often lose 15 to 20 pounds in the first few weeks. Then, weeks 3, 4, 5, or 6 they might lose just 2 or 3 pounds…
Or God forbid, have a week where they lose zero pounds!!!
The inevitable e-mail comes, “Justin, I’m not losing… give me some advice! What can I change?!”
They almost seem pissed at me when I say the same line over and over, and I’m going to repeat it here… and many of you are going to laugh at home in your living rooms because you’ve gotten this e-mail from me…
“Don’t change anything. Consistency is King. This is why I tell you not to weigh yourself. Stay away from the scale; this is self-sabotage.”
Boom! I have that line ready to go with copy and paste… I kid you not. I must say it ten times per day!
You are all a bunch of Tweakers!!
- That is how yo-yo dieting happens!
- That is how self-sabotage begins!
- It is all, yet again, a manifestation of EGO!!!
You are all obsessed with being in Control!
The fact is… when it comes to health and wellness, I know what is best for you… much more so than you do.
And you paid me… why not just listen to me?!
Stop Being a Tweaker!
