SCIENCE OF SUCCESS
BE YOUR OWN HERO
HI! I’m a Successful Tulsa Business Coach,
In February of 2012, I weighed in at a little over 300 lbs. I had come to terms with who I was. I was content with my destiny.
I was a fat guy.
I was born with nice teeth, I had developed a sense of humor and the gift of gab at a relatively early age and so I was ok with my genetic disposition and it didn’t hurt that my wife was beautiful and seemed to love me regardless of how much weight I put on. I was overall pretty content and generally very happy or so it seemed.
Then, EVERYTHING changed. We had recently attended the company Christmas party for Lindsey Management; where Jessica and I had been just been awarded the Manager of the Year Award by the company.
As a team, we’re competing alongside the largest, most competitive category and some very skilled Community Directors and Management Teams so this win was kind of a big deal for us; like the biggest of our careers. Let me paint this clearly: Jess and I were making 6 FIGURES and at the top of our corporate ladder so I should have been on top of the world, but I had something nagging at me. Like a seed that wedges itself in the weathered rock along the meandering streams of the rivers I swam near Kawhia New Zealand, in my twenties, I had a narrative that had landed and rooted itself into my deepest desire and it wasn’t going anywhere until it produced a strong and thriving catalyst for behavioral change.
What caused this transformation?
A colleague had asked me if I had seen a popular documentary over the effect the Standard American Diet was having on our health while we were all seated together for the banquet. My heart sank. I knew that I was the fat guy who needed to see the movie. Everyone else at the table was in fairly good shape. I was sitting there at around 40% body fat and 100+ too many pounds of fat on me. I held my award and wondered silently to myself
“Who will raise my son when I die of diabetes or a heart attack?”
So, I queued up the documentary on Netflix.
The documentary could’ve been about anything, but it wasn’t; it was emotional propaganda piece and I bought it hook, line, and sinker, but here’s the truth,
I WAS READY TO BUY ANYTHING.
The truth is, I had been telling myself a story since Gene had turned a mirror into my face and reminded me that no matter how many awards I won, no matter how much money I made, no matter how happy I was today with my wife and my son, it can all be wiped out by an easily correctable variable.
I had told myself that no one was going to do it for me. It was time for me to grow up. It was time for me to find out what it was I really wanted.
Why did I care what Gene thought ANYWAY?! I am confident, I love myself, I am proud of me! YES, in every area, I was happy, but not in this area and I knew it. I cared about what I thought, and I thought it was time for me to take control of what I put into my body just to see if it made a difference.
So we changed our diet.
1ˈdīət/noun 1.the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.
We are all on a diet. Stop saying you don’t want to be on a diet.
The morning I changed who I was, was epic.
I remember that moment very vividly, that moment when I looked into my own eyes at 5:00 am when the alarm went off. I looked into the mirror and changed who it was that was looking back at me.
I was tired, but I had made a decision. I had decided that I was going to eat a new way; I had done my research. I was sure that I could not be doing anything worse for my body than the behavior which led to my becoming 300+ pounds so I started eating vegetables and drinking water.
I felt sick, very sick. I even missed work and had to go see a doctor. I began to doubt whether or not it was healthy for me to eat vegetables and drink water so it was good that I had already made a decision. Sometimes, pain and comfort can cause us to make irrational or emotional decisions that have no validity but merely are the result of our primate brain design to find patterns which aren’t there.
I looked into my own eyes and began to speak to myself, I began to ask myself who I wanted to be in my world, how do I want to impact and affect the emotions of others, how do I want others to feel when I enter the room and I began to connect with the image of the man I truly wanted to be.
It was over at that moment. I was a machine. It took me an additional 6 years before I sat down and recorded that method on paper and put it into a system to help others, but now I am convinced that using this same method, I can help you BE YOUR OWN HERO too.
