Why People Don’t Get Results Anymore (and how to not be one of them)

fat-lossDo you ever feel as though you’re constantly trying to bring back the past? To get back to that life when things were seemingly so effortless, where just going to the gym every few days with your mates and saying no to the odd drink here and there were enough to keep you in pretty good shape?

That life where when work was finished for the day it was, well, finished, and where your biggest financial worry was finding the right outfit for Friday night.

Ah to be back in those days of bliss.

The saying goes we should learn from the past and whilst I believe that applies fully to some things in life (saving your tax money if you’re self-employed, buying Christmas presents in October, not staying out all night the night before something important) I also believe it’s taught us to have false hope when it comes to fat loss, being in shape and being healthy.

Remember when you didn’t focus on fat loss?

At least once a month I have a client tell me that they probably just need to start running again or maybe they should try an all-shake diet – because that’s how they used to stay lean.

And hey – I’m as guilty as anyone out there. I think back over my own health & fitness journey and it’s true that I did get very ‘skinny’ with running. With umpteen hours of cardio per day and minimal weights. With a high whole-grain, low-fat diet.

It’s also true that I was in my early twenties at the time, had pretty much no stress aside from part-time gym instructing and the occasional Uni class, got loads of sleep and had loads of play/down time as well.

And all that aside, I’m pretty sure I was not actually lean – just tiny and skinny. An important difference ๐Ÿ™‚

The truth? I hesitate to say it gets harder as you get older, not because of the cliche and not because I don’t think it’s true, but just because I hate to wrap the whole thing up so negatively.

Trust me – there’s nothing worse than believing it’s all too hard to make it all truly just get harder and harder. It’s something I’ve personally experienced this year.

I guess it doesn’t have to be about it all being harder, but it definitely is about being smarter.

Assuming that simply dropping a few pieces of toast here and there or increasing your exercise will get you ‘there’ is nothing but a fantasy, and unfortunately all too many people are learning this the hard way. And yes, it’s not necessarily fair. And yes, there are people out there who do get results that way.

You might know one of them and secretly hate them just a tiny bit. Hey – that’s life and it is what it is. There’s no point questioning or getting worked up about it.

So let’s talk about being smart.

It can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be, because when all is said and done being in great shape simply requires you to eat, live, move and breathe as your body is designed to. That’s pretty simply, isn’t it?

Of course it’s not necessarily easy ๐Ÿ™‚

If you look at it the other way, being in great shape is a complicated weave of sourcing all organic and minimally processed food, avoiding things you are intolerant to, ensuring your liver, kidneys, gallbladdar, pancreas are doing what they are supposed to be doing, balancing the right amount of heavy lifting with sweat training, getting enough sleep, just the right amount of stress, plenty of downtime or play, avoiding toxicity as much as humanly possible … um, brown paper bag anyone?

Here’s the thing.

You don’t have to be a genius at human or even your own physiology, and nor do you necessarily need to embark on an endless journey of testing, poking, measuring and prodding. I’m not saying it can’t help.

But the very very first thing you do need to do? You just gotta let go! You just have to let go of the past and the idea that what used to work is what you need now.

Because if I can tell you one thing for sure it’s that nobody gets results when their mind is firmly stuck on what used to work and why it’s not working now.

It simply doesn’t happen and it ignores the very real fact that just as your financial situation, your job situation and heck even what outfit to wear on a Friday night have changed, so too have your physical needs. ‘You’ are a different you to the you of last year, last week, even yesterday.

So (and I know it’s hard; I battle constantly to do this) try and relaaaaaaaax a little. Go with the flow a bit more. Be willing to test new things, even if they seem opposite to all that you believe or that’s worked for you in the past.

And if you want to know the things that I believe are first and foremost in importance, then scroll to the bottom of this post. It’s a small list and one that I could easily add to. But it’s a great start for most of us.

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

P.S.

You’ve become complacent.

Boring.

And stuck.

The things you used to get lit up, because they challenged and stretched you, just don’t do it for you anymore.

Sometimes you wish they would all just go away,

even though at the same time, infuriatingly, you still need to do them, perpetuate them, keep pushing them, because you don’t yet have the results you want.

Yes, you’ve come a long way.

Created epic shit.

BUILT.

Made money.

Made an impact.

But you’re not ‘there’ enough that you really feel like you can breathe easy, relax, let go, be free to JUST be you,

and, practicalities aside, you’re also just IRRITATED by this fact, because it’s just kind of BULLSHIT. You should be WAY further along by now! That’s just who you are! Don’t they KNOW who you are!

(as your soul whispers:
don’t YOU?)

Anyway. If you could just breathe a little easier, you could fuck all this shit up, and over. Move on to the deeper and truer work that YOU are really meant to be doing. Get off the damn hamster wheel of same saminess, and feel like you’re laying down DEEP roots, standing for something, ACTUALLY being different, and giving people something to talk about!

(giving YOU something to talk about, and feel alive for, is the truth of the matter!)

But,

even though you know the answer is just to step.off.the.fucking.train.

You don’t.

You REPEATEDLY do more of the same bullshit,

to the same little circle of people, heck, even though it obviously gets bigger and bigger as you go, it STILL just feels like the same little circle somehow,

and you do it all with some sort of vague idea that eventually you’ll be able to REALLY go all in on you.

On the visions you see inside of you of the NEW mountains to climb, to plant your flag on top of, mountains you haven’t even let yourself fully think about, let alone see!

But you know they’re out there.

And you know you can’t keep doing things this way.

Well,

it’s time for a change that will knock the worlds socks off, starting by YOU getting a swift kick in your front bottom (yeah I said that ;)) to wake you back up to who you actually are.

I’m launching my brand new marketing agency with 5 inaugural clients who I and my team will be working deeply and personally with to create and roll out a result-based plan for growth of a structured ‘cash machine’ which gets your message out to the WORLD, all while allowing you to be the polarising AF tear shit up and unleash truth at the world visionary you ARE, but yet simultaneously see continual growth being made for the long-term vision of your empire.

Maybe one of them is you.

Our company produces multiple 7-figures per year on repeat, and we do it with bells on and ONLY by fucking with business in a way that lights us up and excites us.

Following that inner FUCK yes, and ruthlessly shedding and shredding anything that doesn’t feel exiting, alive, different, truly US, and screw all the rules, is precisely why we’ve gotten to where our have,

and helped tens of thousands of clients around the world to do the same, through our numerous live and home-study courses and programs, as well as through private client mentoring, small high-level masterminds, and so on.

Now, for the first time ever, we’re taking what we do, and the systems, structures and processes we’ve developed which allow this whole thang to be a soul-led MACHINE, in terms of efficiency, creative development, and output, which in turn allows the resident genius (Kat) to be ever more in her creative bubble, thus just making it all work even BETTER, even FASTER,

and we’re going to work with you personally to show you where YOU need to make moves for massive growth,

massive fuck yes,

and deeper systems and roots that begin to do the work FOR you, so that you can get more of your TRUE wild message out to more of the RIGHT people, all while you get to stay in the lane of being you.

Interested, and want to know more?

Wild Bitch Marketing Agency has 5 places open for inaugural clients. We will be completely investigating the what and how of your business and how you run things, and then working with you personally to implement an outcome-based and highly specific plan that not only FEELS amazing and right, but also very clearly takes care of all the areas of growth you know you need to just get taken care of,

so that you can finally BREATHE fully, and just be more of you.
