“Talent is useless without training, thank God.” – Mark Twain
One of the greatest curses of humankind is being someone who possesses a ton of natural talent. You’d think the opposite is true, that having great talent is the key to success. But it’s not.
Yes, talent plays a role in becoming successful. It often plays a significant role. But more often than not, the most talented only rise to the top if they’re willing to train more often as well as more passionately than anyone else.
Far too often, those with the most talent are NOT willing to do the training that will develop their talent to the full. Usually those who really make it are those who are hungry; those who are willing to compensate for lack of talent with something called relentless repetition.
Rising to the top through relentless repetition and dedicated enthusiastic practice is only part of the journey, though. Remaining at the top of your game also requires practice because the easiest thing to forget is what got you where you are.
For an athlete, practicing a specific technique a hundred times a day, or even a thousand times a day, may lead him to the top. But it would be a major mistake to think that once he’s there he doesn’t need to practice his skills any more.
Let me put it to you this way, resting on your laurels leads to rust on your skills.
Yes, I’ve had to eat these words more than once. The easiest thing in the world is to get complacent or become casual about what it takes to get good and stay good.
Your health and fitness level is the same.
Most people are born with a healthy body. Then, through neglect, or ignorance of how to keep it healthy, the body begins to rust and wear out; to get overweight.
As a youngster, you probably didn’t have to think about being active, fit, lean and healthy. You just were. Then as you got older you became less active and things started to change.
In your attempts to undo the damage you see in the mirror and feel in your clothes, you may end up thinking all is lost or that the process is impossible. Or that there’s got to be a better way than what you’re doing.
Last weekend at Ted Nicholas’ seminar he said that one of the keys to being a successful entrepreneur is your willingness to go against the grain, to ignore all the so-called experts who’ve never been there and done it, but offer a lot of advice on how you ‘should’ do it.
The same is true when it comes to fitness. Most conventional fitness advice is totally wrong. Hence, you see people working out everyday who don’t look any better than they did when they started.
Now, you might think that not looking any better than when you started is somewhat positive. After all, you could look worse. But let’s get serious. If you want to lose body fat and you’re following an exercise program that’s only maintaining your current level, you’re doing something wrong. Sure, moving your body on a daily basis is part of the answer. But it’s a very small part.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a complete answer?
Yesterday, after dropping the kids off at school I went to the baseball field to do my famous fat burning workout. My entire routine took less than 15 minutes. And the rest of the day I could feel my metabolism cruising at supersonic speed.
I did not accomplish this metabolic shift with a slow jog or walk. I accomplished it with the secret I reveal in my new program The Fastest Way Humanly Possible to Burn Fat.
When you follow this program you will be stunned at how quickly your body changes. So will your friends and family. And when you go into a restaurant to eat, you’ll be able to eat what you want and still burn it off.
Isn’t that what you want.
Get this program NOW and realize the key fat burning is far simpler and less time-consuming than all the nonsense being spouted by the conventional experts.
