Is There Really A Secret World Operating Parallel To Ours?
When we see people with the physical skills, vigor and beauty we wish we could have, we think…
- “They know something I don’t know.”
- “They are keeping the best for themselves.”
- “If only they let me in on their secret, I could succeed too!”
Many people believe there is a secret of fitness success… and they are right!I’m going to unveil the secret of fitness success… allowing all your past failures will make sense and the “answer” you have been looking for to be revealed before your eyes.
I’m Going To Let You In On The Secret, But Be Forewarned! Secrets are often hidden in plain sight… and people don’t see them because they are so obvious, or refuse to see them because they want to believe something else.
People are exposed to the “secret” to fitness success every day… but miss it, or purposely avoid acknowledging the truth.
When someone “in the know” reveals the secret, most people say… “I knew that, it is just common sense”.
Unfortunately, when people say “I knew that”, what they really mean to say is “I should have known that”.
Because, if they already knew the secret of fitness success, and were not taking advantage of it… well, that would be just plain stupid.
The Secret Of Fitness Success
Those that succeed in obtaining a high level of fitness, improving health and developing an attractive physique all have one thing in common… they consciously or unconsciously “know” the secret of fitness success.
Some people apply it naturally… without any thought whatsoever.
Most people have to apply it with conscious effort… until such time as it becomes automatic.
But no-one becomes the best they can be without it… no-one!
And The Secret Of Fitness Success Is…
You, and only you, are responsible for your fitness success!
- Genetics are not responsible…
- Secret exercises are not responsible…
- Gym memberships are not responsible…
- Magic diets are not responsible…
- The latest machines are not responsible…
- Personal trainers are not responsible…
You, and only you, are responsible for your fitness success!You have the power to successfully increase your fitness level, improve health and create your best body… right now, this very second!
All you have to do is access that power by…
- wanting fitness success…
- learning how to obtain it…
- applying what you learn…
… and not stopping the wanting, learning and applying process until you succeed!Every successful person before you has followed this pattern… and if you follow it, you will be successful too!
“I Knew That… It Is Just Common Sense”
I knew you were going to say that!
How can I claim something “common sense” is a secret?
Because this “secret” was hidden in such plain sight you probably never thought about it properly or applied it effectively… therefore, it was still a “secret” to you.
Do not discount the secret of fitness success because you feel you already knew it… take the time now to fully understand it and it will change your life!
Understand And Succeed… Refuse And Fail!
Right now there is a portion of you who are feeling the power of this “secret”, maybe for the first time.
And if you apply it… you will succeed!
However, there is another portion of you, maybe a larger portion, who can’t believe the above really is the secret of fitness success.
Because the above “secret” implies an investment of time and energy.
These unbelievers will stubbornly hold on to the theory there really is a simple way to get fit, healthy and attractive without an investment of time and energy… and that I am holding out on them.
They will continue their search for the “get-fit-quick-and-easy-miracle”… bouncing from one failure to another until they finally give up.
On the other hand, the believers will start a journey with one common destination… fitness, health and the attractive body they deserve! The Proof Most People Refuse This “Secret”
The desire to be fit, healthy and attractive is a primal urge… it is an itch that simply must be scratched.
It is largely responsible for our survival for thousands of years.
So I think it is safe to say we all would rather be fit, healthy and attractive… than unfit, unhealthy and unattractive.
And if you…
- have a burning desire to become the best you can be…
- learn from the products that get results…
- apply what you learn by putting in the time and effort…
- and never stop wanting, learning and applying until you improve…
… you will succeed in improving your fitness, health and physique!
It”s that simple!
So if we all want fitness, health and an attractive physique… why do so few people have these characteristics?
Simple, most people refuse to believe the secret of fitness success… and are holding out for something better.
- deny responsibility for their fitness success… and spend their time and energy making excuses and blaming everything-under-the-sun for their failure.
- will accept nothing less than a quick, easy, magical route to fitness, health and physique success.
- make no notable, long-lasting progress while the few accepting responsibility, wanting, learning and applying… are succeeding all around them!
Which will you be?
In part 2, I’ll tell you how to become a Fitness Secret Conspirator.
Become a Fitness Secret Conspirator!
In 1920, Alois P. Swoboda published a small book called The Subtle Principle Of Success, and its message is as pertinent today as it was the day it was written.
In the book, Swoboda states…
“The Subtle Principle of Success is destined to revolutionize the human race and lift it through individuals from adversity to prosperity, from mediocrity and inferiority to superiority – the Subtle Principle of Success will lift the human race from pauperism to supremacy.”
Successful people in all walks of life consciously or unconsciously use this life improving principle…
“THE SUBTLE PRINCIPLE OF SUCCESS can be stated in a few words, namely – secrecy – personal conspiracy and intense desire, used as an evolutionary influence.” In other words, if you…
- develop an intense desire for something…
- conspire within yourself to obtain this desire…
- and maintain this desire a secret in order to cultivate its power…
… this desire will become such a profound part of yourself that all conscious and unconscious thoughts and actions will be made for the attainment of this desire.Swoboda states…
“Make up your mind to strive for success and to seek success, and to plan for success and to work for success, and thus, to drive your personality constantly in the direction of success. Moreover, make up your mind to give your attention to some specific concrete object of success.”
For fitness success , the intense desire you must develop, and secretly conspire to achieve… is the desire to be fit, healthy and attractive.
Why So Intense?
Your desire to…
- become the best you can be
- finally achieve your fitness, health and physique goals
- start living a better quality of life
- and live life to the fullest like you deserve
… must be a burning desire.If you can take it or leave it… you will eventually leave it.
Fitness, health and an attractive physique must be priorities in your life for you to do what it takes to attain them.
If they are not… you will fail!
Ok… But What’s All The Secrecy About?
Secrets hold power.
If you’ve ever tried to keep one you know what I mean.
Secrets seem to take on a life of their own… building up inside you until you feel as if you will explode unless you tell someone.
This is the power you need to harness in order to succeed.
Fuel your desire to become fit, health and attractive by not telling anyone… let it fester inside you and drive you to achieve your goals.
If the only way to relieve the pressure of the secret is to attain your goals… you will not stop until your goals are attained.
Do not tell anyone of your goals and plans to achieve them! The mere act of putting your goals and plans into words will relieve the pressure… weakening your desire.
Only conspire within yourself… adding fuel to this secret desire.
Make Your Goals Personal… Another Reason To Keep Them A Secret
The more personal your goals, the more emotion attached to them… the more you will strive to achieve them.
Make your goals as personal and charged with emotion as possible… and keep them a closely guarded secret to fuel the fire of desire.
- “I want to get fit”…
- “I want to be healthy”…
- and “I want to look good”…
… are not personal.Goals like…
- “I want to get fit and finally beat my classmate, co-worker or teammate at X”…
- “I want to be healthy and use my money for me instead of medicine”…
- “want to look better than all my friends and be envied by all”…
… are personal.These personal goals may seem egotistical… but they are exactly the type of goals needed to fuel your burning desire.
These goals should be so personal they would be embarrassing to reveal to another person… reinforcing why you should keep your goals and plans to achieve them a secret.
You are not a bad person for wanting to be the best you can be and advancing yourself above all others… but don’t expect other people to understand.
They will not understand… and what is more they will do everything they can to sabotage your efforts.
Become A Fitness Secret Conspirator!
You must become a Fitness Secret Conspirator… trusting no-one with your secret and revealing nothing.
Build your secret desire on personal goals, and conspire within yourself to achieve these goals and satisfy this desire… and you will have no choice but to act.
Your secret planning to satisfy your burning desire to be fit, healthy and attractive will force you into action!
In the following Part, I’ll teach you what to look for when choosing fitness products.
Choose Your Fitness Products Wisely!
Now that you have created a burning desire to be fit, healthy and attractive, and have begun secretly conspiring to satisfy your desires, the obvious question becomes… How?
There are so many different types of fitness products to choose from… all claiming to be your perfect fitness, health and physique solution.
* So many recommendations…
* So many famous personalities…
* Many advertisements…
But which fitness product will work best for you?
Characteristics to look for when choosing Fitness Product
Here are some characteristics to look for when choosing a fitness product.
The more of these characteristics the fitness product has… the better the chance you will succeed in achieving your fitness, health and physique goals.
- Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Effective
- While this characteristic seems like a no-brainer… you would be surprised at just how many people are actively using a fitness product that will never give them the results they seek.
- Many people say they want improve their level of fitness… and get a bodybuilding product.
- Big muscles are not necessarily indicative of a high level of fitness.
- Many people say they want to lose fat… and get an aerobic endurance product.
- Aerobic training is only a part of the fat loss equation, and will not produce the lean, muscular, athletic body most people want… regardless of all the hard work.
The point is, make sure the fitness product you choose is designed to get the results you want… or you are doomed to failure before you begin.
If you want to increase fitness, improve health and develop an attractive physique… look for fitness products designed to produce these results.
Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Interesting
Let’s face it, if you are not interested in the fitness product you choose… you will not use it long enough to see results.
I don’t care if the fitness product was proven to work by thousands of scientific studies… it will have no positive effect on your fitness, health or physique if you don’t do it.
And you won’t do it… if it does not hold your attention and peak your interest.
No matter how many times you say… “This time I’m not giving up until I get the results I want.” … you will eventually give up if the fitness product is not interesting to you.
Don’t force yourself to struggle with a fitness product you hate… look for interesting fitness products that fit into your lifestyle and match your personality.
You should look forward to physical training… not dread it!
Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Modifiable
There is not one fitness product in existence that can be all things to all people… regardless of what all the slick-tongued advertisements say.
Fitness products must be modifiable to your goals, needs, abilities and limitations… you must be given a degree of freedom to make the physical fitness program uniquely your own.
Have different wants and needs.
You have different strengths and weaknesses needing specific attention.
You must be able to take an active role in the use of the fitness product… modifying it into your perfect fitness program.
Cookie-cutter programs claiming long-term results do not work.
Look for fitness products that can be easily modified to your unique situation.
Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Sustainable The more the fitness product is dependent on machines, devices and other complexities… the easier it is to destroy.
What happens when the machine is not available, the device breaks or the complexity you have based you entire fitness program on is lacking?
Your physical training comes to a grinding halt!
I am not saying you should stay away from fitness products that use machines, special equipment, etc… only don’t choose a product that makes you dependent upon them.
You are responsible for your fitness success… not the availability of a piece of equipment, or access to a machine.
Look for fitness products that help you sustain physical training in your lifestyle no matter what the circumstances.
Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Progressive
There are many fitness products out there presented as a fixed workout.
“Do this over and over again and you will get the results you want.”
And the workout may be effective in the beginning… for some people and for a limited amount of time.
Unfortunately, any workout program not part of a progressive over-all plan is doomed to failure.
Progessive Workout Plan
This is why you still need fitness products with all the free workouts out there.
A workout without a progressive plan is little more than manual labor… and will fail to take you where you need to go.
Any improvements you see in the beginning will quickly disappear, leaving you asking, “What do I do now?”
Then it is off to look for another workout to try.
Make sure the fitness product you choose is progressive in nature… and not just “add more weight” either.
Progression on many different levels is probably the most important aspect of any successful fitness program.
Track your fitness Program
Your Physical Fitness Program Must Be… Measurable
The pursuit of fitness, health and physique is a journey… and like any worthwhile journey, it should be documented.
The ability to measure your progress will keep you on the track of success… enabling you to see where you’ve been and where you’re going.
Make sure the fitness product you choose comes with a workout journal, or that one can be easily made… Don’t underestimate the importance of a workout journal.
Your workout journal will help you…
* judge if your physical training efforts are getting you closer to your goals…
* decide if you need to modify your fitness program…
* and determine if it is time to switch to something completely different…
… ultimately guiding and documenting your fitness success.
Look for fitness products making it easy to measure their effectiveness… how else will you really know if it is working for you or not?
Use Your Common Sense
If the fitness product…
* attracts you…
* speaks to you…
* excites you…
* and ultimately makes sense to you…
… it is probably the right fitness product for you.
After all, only a physical fitness program you actually do, and that becomes a part of your lifestyle, will give you the long-term fitness, health and physique benefits you seek.
Now that you have a burning desire to be fit, healthy and attractive, have secretly conspired within yourself to achieve your goals and know what to look for in a fitness product, there is only one thing left to do… act!
In the next part , I’ll show you how knowledge without action us useless.
Guarantee Results Through Action!
Only through action will you achieve your fitness, health and physique goals.
* Just thinking about it won’t work.
* Just wanting it won’t work.
* learning only about it won’t work.
Only doing it will work.
Up until this point you have cultivated a burning desire and learned how to make informed decisions about fitness products… it is now time to put your plan into action!
Do Not Become… A Workout Collector
I know people who collect workouts.
They scour the web printing off every free workout they can get their hands on, they buy product after product because the marketing was enticing and they have an impressive library of workout books.
Unfortunately, collecting workouts will have zero positive effect in bringing you closer to your goals.
Only the physical training you do as a result of the fitness product will bring you closer to your goals.
You Must Become… A Physical Training Practitioner
If you have done everything correctly so far, you have a burning, secret desire that can only be satisfied by success as well as the knowledge to make an informed decision about the fitness product right for you… so pick one and get started.
Formulate your secret plan and put it into action.
You will improve and succeed as a result of the time and effort spent actually doing what the fitness product says.
And remember… you are putting in the time and effort now for results you will see later.
Be patient and Learn
You Never Fail… You Only Learn
Your physical training is a learning experience… so be prepared to make changes. If the fitness product you choose does not get the results you want… you did not fail.
You learned what does not work for you!
Use this knowledge when choosing another fitness product… one with a different approach.
If the fitness product you choose only takes you so far… you did not fail.
You learned about a certain type of physical training and the reaction your body has to it!
Use this knowledge when choosing another fitness product… one with a similar approach.
If you got everything you want from the fitness product but feel like you need a change… you did not fail.
You learned what works for you!
Use this knowledge when choosing another fitness product… now you know what to look for.
Never Give Up!
Once you start… don’t stop.
Keep at it consistently enough to be able to make an honest assessment of the fitness product you are using.
If you decide it is not working for you… don’t just give up.
Figure out why it was not working for you and look for a fitness product to help you move forward.
Assessment, modification and change are forms of action.
Never just throw your hands in the air and say, “I’m never going to be fit, healthy and attractive.”
You will, you just have to find the fitness product right for you… and the more experience you have the easier the search becomes.
Keep wanting, learning and applying until you get what you want!
After all… you can not fail when failure ceases to be an option.
Success comes from doing… so be a doer!
There is no excuse that cannot be overcome if the desire is great enough.
Now YOU know the secret to fitness success… and the responsibility to use it falls solely on your shoulders.
Take the responsibility, fuel your secret desire to be the best you can be (and better than others), choose fitness products wisely that are already getting spectacular results and act.
The road to fitness success is clear… but it still is a road you must choose to travel!
I wish fitness success.
