Killer Accountability/Motivation Technique

Ever had one of those days when you just can’t be bothered? I have them all the time. I use various techniques to try and get me through. Willpower. Keeping a promise to myself. Thinking about how good I’ll feel afterwards. But sometimes nothing works and I just get lazy.

Can you relate?

If so, you might like to use a little trick I came across recently. Let me explain how it came about.

In February, I attended a BioSignature Modulation refresher course. Charles Poliquin is an awe-inspiring man for many reasons. Not least because the man is in such phenomenal shape and health that you’re practically shamed into living a perfect life just from being around him for a day or more.

Anyway. For those in the class who were willing to lay themselves on the line, Charles set a personal challenge. The challenges were based on what he knew we could physically achieve, so each person’s was different. Even as I queued up to find out my challenge I wondered what I was letting myself in for. I mean, this is not a man who is known for letting his athletes or clients off lightly, so there wasn’t much chance he’d go soft on his students. And even though I was bracing myself I still had a small inward gasp of dismay when he told me what my task was. Because here’s the real kicker – if we don’t meet our side of the bargain, we’ve all agreed to donate $350 to a charity of Charles’ choosing (which is fine) AND to be named and shamed on his Facebook fan page. Which is growing at such a rate it’s almost a cert that basically everyone within and most people outside of the fitness industry will get to point and laugh if we don’t succeed. Not that they would you understand, but the idea of it is enough.

So – you wouldn’t believe how on track I’ve been since then. Sugar-free. And I mean completely. Structured cheating. Eating ENOUGH (protein). Which is not always easy, by the way. In fact, the better you eat, the less hunger and cravings you have, but it’s crucial that you regularly fuel your metabolism if lean muscle growth and fat loss is your goal. And training? I’m doing it like I mean it. Each and every time. Loving the lactic. Of course I’m not a robot – I’ve had one or two slip ups (a Lindt bunny got the better of me over Easter) – but all in all I’m just so darn proud of myself that I might give myself a gold star. Maybe two.

And it’s a great feeling. One that I’ll bet you’d love to get a-hold of for yourself. Here’s how I think you can do that.

In my opinion there are two key reasons why this is working so well for me – and no, neither of them requires you to make a bet with CP.

  1. Respect
  2. Potential humiliation faced off against potential public acknowledgment and the pride that it would entail

Respect is all about making yourself accountable to someone who you well, respect. Ideally several someones. One of the ‘bonuses’ of my bet is that all of the other BioSig students know what it is. And I know what their challenges are. This not only enhances accountability but it results in a great feeling of camraderie and support. And sure enough, we’ve all been checking up on each other, helping each other along.

Potential humiliation may well sound like a negative thing but it sure is an excellent motivational technique. Especially because it comes back to point one – I want to be able to prove myself to me but also to Coach Poliquin and the other students, all of whose opinion (and yes, I’ll admit it, acknowledgment) means a lot to me.

Of course laying yourself open to a public shame walk may not be an idea that’s really grabbing you, but here’s the thing. Reality is that no-one is going to tear me apart or call me names if I don’t meet my goal but have truly given it my all. Okay, maybe there’ll be a few jokes, but I can handle it. Because really, as long as I know I put my all in, I’ll be happy. And as much as I’d like to think I would have put my all in anyway and just for me, the truth is that I hadn’t been. Not 110%, and not every day. So scary as this may be, it sure is working. And it sure beat’s a case of the I-can’t-be-bothered’s every time.

So now it’s your turn.

I’m going to ask you right now to think of a challenging personal goal for yourself. It could be strength and fitness related, it could be purely aesthetic, it could be to do with consistency and determination in your approach to improved wellness. It’s up to you – but make it something that not only inspires and excites you when you think of achieving it, but also scares you a little. Name your goal in the comments section below. The deadline is the beginning of December, same as me.

Life is Now. Press Play.

Expansion.

10 Days of Live Soul Transmissions, to Help You Find and Follow the Messages Within

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
