Hello and welcome to the Mind Reprogramming module! I'm super-thrilled that you've reached this level because this is one of the most important modules in the program.

Say you have the absolutely perfect workout plan in your hands. If you don't do it, then the value of this plan is zero. You gain nothing from it.

And while having the wrong expectations is a major reason behind the fact that we don't stick to exercise, negative feelings about exercise, as well as not knowing how to cope when things don't go as planned (e.g., you skipped a workout and now you're blaming yourself) are what push people to quit and give up.

This week you won't just learn the 3 techniques to reframe your thinking so that you become like the people who look forward to exercise, you'll also learn what to do on those bad days - when you feel like doing nothing and really don't want to get off the couch.

Ok now I'll let you take in the material. Enjoy!

Mind Reprogramming

If you don't particularly like exercise, if you beat yourself up over skipping a workout or if you have a hard time motivating yourself to get off the couch and just do it, pay close attention. You'll learn:

  • How to change your natural reaction to exercise or to things not going as planned.
  • What beliefs are and why they matter. How they keep your momentum up.
  • The most common ways we distort the truth, incl. all-or-nothing, discounting the positives, jumping to conclusions, maginificaiton/minimization, and labeling.
  • How to reframe your thinking: The BUT technique
  • How to reframe your thinking: The "it's safe" technique
  • How to reframe your thinking: The "I don't have to do it, but" technique

Remember no matter what tricks your mind plays, don't ever, ever quit. Your dreams matter. You matter. To quote Confucius, it does not matter how slow you as long as you do not stop.

This video is a game-changer. I'll repeat -- pay close attention!

What Insights Did You Gain?

Use this comments section to practice the techniques you learned this week. So, e.g., thinking you'll never get fit because you skipped a workout? Attack this thought with your new knowledge. Find the Truth Distortions, use the BUT technique, or the "It's safe" technique.

Think that you can never be like the people who look forward to exercise? Again use the techniques to turn this thought around. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
