Author of The 30 Day Makeover
A long time ago, a farmer found an eagle's egg up high on a hill, so he
picked it up and brought it back to his farm and put it in a hen's nest
along with some other eggs in the coop...
a few days, the eagle hatched along with the chickens. As the
eagle grew, it did what the other chickens did, since that's what it
was convinced it was. It clucked, it awkwardly flapped its wings and
flew a few feet in the air, and like the other chickens, was more than
satisfied with the insects and seeds it found from scratching in the
dirt. One day, the eagle looked up into the sky and saw the
most amazing creature soaring through the air.

gracefully in wide circles in and out of the high

I believe that
you're a lot like the little eagle in that story.
were made to soar. To accomplish absolutely great and
wonderful things, to be happy, at peace, secure, and confident, but
somewhere along the way, you became convinced that it wasn't
meant to be, that somehow, you were different.
you were conditioned to think you weren't destined for greatness because of what your parents or
friends said a long time ago, or because of what your spouse says
now. Maybe you think it because of what you've been
saying to yourself, and maybe it FEELS so true…
it's an illusion.
I say anything else, I need you
to understand something...
don't want you to believe ANYTHING
I tell you just because I say it. I want you to look for the
proof in your own life…
I or anyone else says something, don't just
blindly accept it as fact. Look for the evidence around you and use your own logic and see if you think it's true or
not. YOU decide.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret…
are no different than anyone else who's achieved greatness,
and believe it or not, I'm convinced you have the potential inside you to achieve
whatever it is you want.
I don't expect you to believe that just because I said it, so
let's see if that statement makes sense.
matter what you want, whether it be peace of mind, courage, money, a
great marriage, more free time, a body you're proud of, or
anything else…someone else has already accomplished it.
you think that you're different from those people?
Maybe that you lack some trait they have, or weren't born to
the right parents, or don't have the right education, or
genetics, or that you've had life kick you around too much?
I guarantee you that no
matter what you want to accomplish, how hard things have been
for you, and what obstacles are in your way to the outcome you want,
there's not only a lot of people who have accomplished it
despite the same or similar challenges, but there's a lot of
people that have done it with FAR LESS than what you have.
you think you can't have a great relationship because your
parents didn't…there's someone else who
has wonderful relationships and had worse role models, or no
parents or all.
you want to have a great body but you've “always
had a weight problem” or “everyone in your family
is fat,” you can find examples all around you of people that
have a similar family history but has decided to succeed
you think you don't have the mental wiring to accomplish
great things? That you lack the courage to really take on the
world AND WIN? That massive accomplishment is for a chosen
few..the lucky ones...but not you?
only thing that separates you from the people that have overcome these
challenges and reached their goals is the choices they made and how
they decided to live their lives, regardless of what stood in their
along the way, they learned the method to achieving what they want, and
simply acted upon what they knew. They weren't fundamentally any
different or better than you...what was different is what they KNEW and the ACTION they took.
I believe success
can be TAUGHT...
if you took the same actions as those who have accomplished what you want to
just like a recipe. If a world class chef prepares an
exquisite meal, it would probably be impossible for you to duplicate it
home (well, it would be for me anyway).
what if you had the recipe? What if you knew exactly what the
chef did to get the end result, in what order, down to the
you could have the same outcome any time you wanted, right?
Why can't you just learn what successful people do to propel
them towards their goals so fast and seemingly without effort, and then
do the same things?
problem is “success” isn't that
It's not just ONE thing…
where it gets a little sticky...
people, at any point in time, want to change a few specific things in their
life, and understandable, that's what they focus on.
instance, they want to lose weight, advance at work, have a
better marriage, or overcome a fear, etc.
want a band aid for the wound that's bleeding the worst at
that point in time.
problem is, I've found success doesn't usually work like that, so that typical
approach is destined to fail.
in any area very rarely occurs in isolation. It works in
concert with changes in other areas simultaneously, just like multiple
instruments played on their own wouldn't make a melody, but
when played together in harmony, can create beautiful music.
phenomenon is known as synergy,
and is what I believe separates those who seem to be successful in so
many different areas of their lives from those that struggle for years
to make a change in a single area.
synergy occurs, it's like a switch being flipped, everything
starts to flow, and wonderful things can happen extraordinarily
I've found that when
key areas of your life begin to work together to support one another,
the effect can be rapid change in ALL areas, not just one, and
that's precisely what's needed.
Synergy makes 1+1 = 4.
look at an example so you can make up your own mind if what I'm
suggesting is true...
you would like to lose a few pounds, like many people would,
what advice do you get from most books on the
subject? Well, they give you lists of foods to eat and not
eat, exercises to do, and things like that, right? Sure,
those things are important but if that was the real solution to the
you have achieved it by now?
don't try to tell me that the reason we have so many people
overweight and sick is because they haven't gotten the right
food list yet. I don't believe that you
didn't know that pizza, candy, and sitting around in front of
the television wasn't the path to your physical goals, sorry,
I'm not buying it.
if that's not the problem, what is?
problem is that there's so much more to it than the
related to the outcome itself. If you don't have
the time in your life to eat the right foods, you'll make bad
choices out of convenience. If you still have unregulated stress in your life,
you'll continue to eat emotionally to cope with those
feelings if you don't know a better way. If you still view
yourself as a “fat person,” you'll still
engage in behavior consistent with that view of yourself!
I'm convinced it's
not a matter of will power, inner strength, or discipline. If
the approach itself is wrong, it can be virtually impossible to succeed, no
matter how hard you try.
see if it holds true in another area...
about your relationships? Do you think you can maintain a
great marriage with someone if you don't like yourself
first? What about if you're stressed out, angry,
and critical all the time? Pretty difficult right?
probably becoming clear
that if you were to make changes in a few STRATEGIC areas, you wouldn't just improve ONE area of your life,
but MANY AT ONCE, each one acting like a foundation to support and strengthen
did I arrive at this "formula"?
set out to find what I consider the most common areas of challenge are in
people's lives, and I discovered that they're the
Self-limiting thoughts and beliefs, fears and anxiety, feelings of
being “off course”, stress, low self-esteem, and
other problems that are created and maintained by your mind are a very
common area of desired change.
Not seeming to have “enough hours in the day” or
never accomplishing anything of real long term value, no matter how
hard you work, is another challenge many face.
Being overweight, unhealthy, or tired are all things that can be
changed, and as you probably know, are at epidemic proportions.
Whenever asked what is truly most important, I found that most people respond with
something relationship based...being a good parent, spouse, friend,
etc. If your relationships are in turmoil, or just not as
good as you know they could be, it can leave you perpetually dissatisfied.
I sat and looked at them, it screamed at me…
is the “foundation” of your life!
To me, it's obvious that all
of these areas have to play in concert with one another for you to
achieve lasting success.
like a flute won't sound right if there's a tuba
blowing out of tune in the background, I don't think you can't truly change
your physical body without changing your inner self, or your
relationships if you don't have any time to spend on them,
it gets even better…
you start orchestrating the concert, the results can be
astounding. I believe you can get control over your destiny and can change
virtually ANY area of your life on a whim, quickly, with a very small
amount of effort when "pressure" is applied to the RIGHT PLACES. I've found that when your
playing in harmony, you can literally become the conductor of your life
and direct it however you choose!
On the other hand, if your attention, pressure, and focused ISN'T on the right areas, it doesn't matter how hard you're try, success can remain beyond your grasp forever!
know this is a lot to take in and absorb, so take a minute and read
what I've just said again and make sure it makes sense to
you. I think you'll come to realize that you know
in your heart what I'm saying is true. Deep down,
don't you know you're capable of more than what you're living?
Don't you sometimes feel your true potential boiling inside
you, wanting to be released, but you don't know what to do with it?
you starting to see how this approach is radically different and far
more effective than what you may have tried in the past?
you may already know, I'm the author of the some of the most
recommended and successful self-help programs available. I
don't bring that up to impress you, but I do want to share
something that I've learned in my years being a "guru"
and being involved behind the scenes with
countless others in the self-improvement industry.
can count on one hand the number of people I know in the
self-improvement industry that are REALLY providing solutions to elicit
What they're REALLY peddling is HOPE.
don't get my wrong, hope is important. It inspires,
motivates, and uplifts, and every self improvement program should
provide hope for the future, as a matter of fact, if I'm
doing things right you've gotten some renewed hope from
reading this already...
there has to be MORE than just hope, otherwise all that's there is
a mirage, another illusion.
Many of the so called “self-help gurus”
are more like casino owners to me. When I go to a casino, I
go to win money, otherwise, why go, right? On the drive over,
I think about what I'd do if I won a bunch of money and how thrilling and exciting it would be...it's what makes me put more chips on the table or keep pulling the
lever of a slot machine. At its most basic level, the casino
provides me with temporary hope.
those feelings can be exhilarating. I don't go to
casinos very often, but when I do, I know
I'm probably going to lose, but I don't
mind paying for the fleeting feeling of hope and the emotional high
that comes with it.
to me, the self-help gurus that only provide hope are less
ethical than the casinos! At least the casino
doesn't make a secret of the fact that you'll
probably lose money, the odds are right there in the open.
of the gurus don't have that much integrity, do
they? They package it up as the end all be all, when all it
is is a temporary condition of renewed hope, nothing more. No different
than a short trip to Vegas.
Remember this...Hope IS NOT a strategy.
providing hope is like a doctor only providing aspirin for a gushing
if you take enough pills the pain will go away temporarily, but nothing
is really fixed, nothing changes. And when your
“hope medicine” wears off, like it always does,
where are you? Right…exactly where you were when
you started, except with one less option. It's depressing and
me tell you a little bit about me, some things you may already know,
others I know you don't...
life used to very different than it is now, in almost every
area. My family didn't have a lot of money growing
up, in fact, for a long time I slept on a mattress on a bare plywood
floor, there wasn't even always heat in the winter, which in
Chicago, is a problem.
was raised around alcoholics, and there was no shortage of violent behavior
around me, I still remember going to sleep wondering if tonight was
another night a drunken war would be waged around me.
was a fat kid, back then they called it “husky,”
but that didn't make the teasing at school any less
relentless, so I hated school almost as much as I hated home.
I spent doing more than my fair share of stupid things,
and although I don't blame anyone else for my actions,
looking back at my history, they weren't all that
unexpected. I was kicked out of high school, got in some
rather serious trouble with the law, and tried to hide from the
feelings still bubbling inside me by abusing drugs and alcohol.
years later, when I had finally started to get my life
together, I was dealt a new card I wasn't prepared to deal
got so bad that at many times, Icouldn't even leave
my house. I was 23.
forward to now…
have a successful business where I'm blessed and fortunate enough to be able to
help people around the world every single day conquer their fears and
start to reclaim the lives they feel they lost. I honestly
get to do what I love.
married to a wonderful woman who's way out of my league, and I have two
wonderful children who add sparkle and sunshine to my day whenever I
don't have panic attacks anymore, and it's been a long time
since I was held back by fears or anxiety.
lost all my extra weight and went
from a chubby kid who got picked on to an athlete who played football,
ran track, and competed in triathlons before most people knew what they
were. This experience, and how differently the world treated
me because of how I looked, instilled in me a passion for health and
fitness that drove me to become a successful personal trainer long
before I became a well known self-improvement author.
don't tell you my story to impress you, or even to inspire
you, I tell it so you know I'm someone
who's been there…
I've spent a good portion of my life learning or teaching
what I know in these areas, either as a fitness trainer or
self-improvement author. What I've
learned are things I desperately want to share,
because life can be so much easier than most people make it and
I don't think there's any more important job I have than to
teach you to eliminate that unnecessary struggle.
I started to put my knowledge on paper and I instantly knew I had to organize it in a way
that you would understand and could easily and quickly USE. After a few dozen
different ways of doing it, the entire process seemed to fit perfectly in
a 30 day action plan.
the program step by step and easy to follow was critical, so every day, I'm going walk you through precisely what I think needs to be done. I've removed
as much "thinking" as possible, I
guide you through every
step of the process, just like following any other recipe.
When you follow the recipe, results are inevitable, right?
me when I tell you, this wasn't easy. It was
probably the hardest, but most important, thing I've ever
done. The result is my “play book” for
life, because I think it's impossible to win when you don't
know the rules and strategies for success.
inviting you to to take part in what may be the most transformative and life altering 30 days you've ever experienced...with the 30 Day Makeover.
30 Day Makeover is composed of four major sections, each addressing one
of the four areas of improvement I outlined earlier that I think you'll discover can work in
harmony to help you reach your goals faster and easier than ever before.
guide you by the hand through the program one day at a time, each day
requiring about a half hour. You'll get the
weekends off, so the entire program will take you thirty days, and I
think when you're done, you'll realize it was a
pivotal point in your life - that your
life will now have

what you think)
- Why the worst
thing you could do is spend hours in the gym. My Accelerated Fat
