The " flaw" that I see is what is being celebrated- what is being celebrated is the tool.-Weight Watchers, Medifast, Slimfast, or Beach bodies, etc (I am not highlighting these programs for any particular reason other than they are popular) .These tools, as they are, have benefits that do work and help people get results. They are however just tools! If people utilize tools( any tools) the way they are intended they will improve their health-they will lose weight and their lives can be drastically changed for the better. AWESOME!
Therein lies the common factor...People did the work. Individuals decided, for whatever reason-family, poor health, wanted to feel better, improve or eliminate disease states- what ever the reason- Individuals decided TO DO the work.
That is what should be celebrated. Celebrate the decision to act. Celebrate the individual effort put in. Celebrate the results YOU created! Celebrate YOU! Appreciate the tool; appreciate information and the external motivation that was given but own and celebrate the fact YOU did the work and stuck to a plan and created your success!
So it comes down to when you are ready-when you have reached a point that your results are not getting you where you want or need to be you choose to act and make a difference. When that point comes you find a tool-a trainer, a coach, a program-and you choose to follow/listen to/ adhere to that tool properly/responsibly/ honestly and then you take the appropriate action and YOU create results that make a difference!
In other words you are Responsible for your success. Embrace and celebrate that!!!
I finish all my "blogs" with a certain phrase...I am going to alter slightly that phrase. Since you (out there, the reader) are actually doing the reading and not me I want you to read the "new" phrase out loud because...that is who is truly responsible.
I AM THE DIFFERENCE!!!
