Strengthen Your Weak Links
The most important muscle in your
body is the one positioned between
And the fastest way to increase your
strength, endurance and flexibility is
NOT by working out harder and harder –
although that can be part of the equation.
The fastest way to get results and make your
weak links stronger is to make the connections
between your brain and your body stronger.
This is done in three ways:
1. Proper breathing
2. Powerful use of your imagination
3. Good posture and movement
Let me take a simple exercise to illustrate strength
and weakness. This exercise is called: Getting out of
bed in the morning.
Okay, if you’re like most, you wake up to the sound of
an electronic rooster.
And when the rooster crows, you either get out of bed
slowly, almost in a stupor, or you reach over and hit
the snooze button.
Now, why on earth would you do this.
You do it because in your brain you store a mental
picture of yourself getting up groggy – or of hitting
the snooze button for more sleep.
Inside this mental picture are words like, “I’m tired.”
Or “”I just need ten more minutes then I’ll be fine.”
Once the alarm goes off the mental picture of being
damn near comatose fires – along with the words –
and this creates a feeling in your mind/body.
You barely have the strength to get out of bed.
But on the days in which you are going on vacation –
or you have a very important meeting at an early hour –
you carry a different mental picture with vastly different
self-talk. And guess what. On those mornings you pop
out of bed with gusto and a feeling of greatness.
You are far stronger and energetic on that day than the
Now you know the reason.
The same applies with strength and endurance. The fastest
way to improve each of these qualities is to begin changing
the mental picture you have of yourself – along with how
your breathe and move.
Here’s a perfect example: Last week I sent out an email
announcing my Get Tough Ultimate Mind-Body Fitness
Challenge – http://gettough.com
A number of Matt Furey Inner Circle members went to the
site and immediately registered. And get this: They were
so inspired just from reading the letter I have on the
site that they worked out harder than ever before. Several
of them did 500-straight Hindu squats for the first time.
One lady did 801-straight Hindu squats.
Prior to doing 500 or 801-straight Hindu squats, these
people had the ability to do what they did. But they
didn’t think they could. They never pictured it. They
gave very little thought to it.
Then, after reading about Sakai Yusai doing 1000 marathons
in seven years, their mental pictures were altered. They
realized that their so-called “tough” workout was wimpy
as hell. They realized how they’d pictured themselves being
less than they’re capable of.
And so, in their very next workout, they set personal records.
Some of these people have been sore for days. Very sore.
You could say they over-did it. But the truth is they now
know they are capable of much, much more than they
thought – and the reason is because they changed what
they thought about.
Now, here’s the clincher.
If these people got that inspired just from reading a letter
promoting the event – what do you think will happen to
them after spending 2.5 days with me and the other
speakers at the event.
What do you think will happen when they’re swimming in
a Universe of different thoughts about what is and isn’t
I can tell you right now, anyone who sets foot in the room
on May 16-18, regardless of whether he or she is wimpy,
weak, strong or super-strong – will have his mental pictures
altered forever. No one will emerge unchanged.
If 5000 words on a website can move you that much – just
think what 2.5 days – LIVE and in person – will do. Go to
