The Power Of Words

“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”
Rudyard Kipling

Words have power.

Our words determine our attitude.

Our success and failure.

I take words very seriously. I am careful when I choose words on my blog posts, dealing with clients and people around me.

In my book Annihilation:Total Body Training System, there is a whole chapter on words that you must remove from your vocabulary in order to succeed.

Which brings me to my point…my least favorite word.

That word is resolution.

I know it is ironic isn’t it?

I mean I am a personal trainer and a membership director of a fitness facility. New Year’s Resolutions should excite and inspire me right?

Well I am sad to say that I don’t like the word at all.

So back to words…

When you hear the word resolution, do you think of people making great changes to their lives, overcoming obstacles and making positive lasting changes?

I doubt it.

I would be willing to wager a sizable sum that you have the same thoughts I do.

People work out, quit smoking and eat right for a week…

Then they give up. Just like everyone said they would.

You probably roll your eyes and have a smug grin on your face when you hear your friends and co-workers talk about what they are going to change.

If you had a resolution in January you probably kept it to yourself so that you wouldn’t get the same response.

We all know the routine all too well. It has become an accepted sport to make fun of people making resolutions and booking bets on who will quit first…

So I have pointed this out, that is easy.

Pointing out flaws and shortcomings is simple to do, no talent required.

So me being me. Doing what I do. I decided to fix this situation.

revolution

Try and convince me that Revolution isn’t a better word…

Resolution kind of sounds weak. It’s like saying I am going to try.

If you have ever trained with me or read my book you know how bad I hate the word try.

Revolution…now that sounds exciting.

It sounds violent and unrelenting…Revolution is the opposite of acceptance…

It means there is no turning back…

I was so inspired by the word I looked it up. I am a bit of a nerd like that…

I love the dictionary. Always have.

One of the definitions was:  a sudden, radical, or complete change a fundamental change in the way of thinking about or visualizing something : a change of paradigm.

That’s right in order to succeed at any goal there has to be a fundamental change in the way we THINK about something…

If you are only thinking about all the fast food and candy bars you are going to be missing out on, instead of thinking about having more energy and fitting into those favorite jeans in your closet that you used to wear, you will fail.

I see it everyday…

The other great thing about a revolution is it can take place at any time…

Not just the first week of January…

You can be a rebel…

You can begin your fitness revolution RIGHT NOW!

I know that the toughest step is the first step.

That’s what I am here for!

That’s what I do.I show you the trail and point you in the direction to walk…

I know not everyone lives in my area or has the opportunity to train with me.

But don’t worry…

That is why I wrote Annihilation:Total Body Training System

So everyone could have access to the ultimate guide to fat burning success!

And because I am so excited to see you start your own revolution I am going to offer my book at a discounted rate from now until March 1st by clicking on the link below!
