Welcome to Day #1!
Over the next 7 days, we’re going to cover key components to
transforming the way you feel in just minutes a day.
And since you’re a multi-dimensional being (you have thoughts
and feelings that affect how you feel just as much as anything
you put into your mouth), we’re going to address all dimensions
in this series with the insights that follow.
So let’s get started with today’s lesson,
**Why Most Programs Fail**
Ever tried a “program” to change your health or something in
your life only to be disappointed it “didn’t work”?
Before we talk about some of the specific physical steps you can
take to change your health and how you feel, today I want to share
with you the top two reasons why most programs “fail”, and at
the same time equip you with a strategy so that you never “fail”
Here’s the first reason:
**The Law of Incremental Change and Compounding Results**
Think for a moment of growing a tomato plant (a wonderful
analogy in Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Life).
When the first green shoots spring up from the dirt, you don’t
stomp on them and say, “But I wanted a tomato!”
But isn’t that what you’ve done when attempting to “grow” other
results in your life?
Whether it’s changing your physique, releasing some weight,
eating healthier, or even a change in an arena other than health–
how you relate to your spouse or kids, or the results you’re
wanting to see in your business–how many times have you been
frustrated with yourself or your apparent “lack” of results?
Maybe you “messed up” this weekend and repeated an old habit,
or maybe you’ve been “trying really hard” but still not seeing
the results you want…
Or maybe you’re overwhelmed by a diagnosis or set of
circumstances and don’t know where to begin…
Well, no matter where you are right now, here’s where you start:
One step at a time.
Now this may seem obvious, but stick with me for a moment.
You can’t be anywhere other than where you are right now–
because that’s where you are.
So start here.
Start taking steps in the direction you want to head.
And start to accept and understand The Law of Incremental
Change and Compounding Results.
You’ve heard of the “penny doubling every day” becoming over
10 million by the end of 30 days.
Well, in the first few weeks, the visible changes are
INCREMENTAL…but the continuation of these incremental
changes begins to compound, and that’s when the magic
It’s the same with your health, your relationships, or any
other area of your life.
You may be ready for a quantum shift…and we’ve probably
all heard of personal transformation that happens virtually
But what happens for most people is the willingness to
cooperate with taking these incremental steps consistently,
and then allowing the magic of compounding to happen.
And compounding doesn’t just happen with money…
It happens in your body, and in any area of your life where
you allow new steps to begin to add together and create a
And the compounding can happen rapidly…just like with the
and create almost “overnight” transformation.
But when you’re “in the middle of it,” if you don’t understand
this principle, you can “stomp” on your tomato shoots…
…stop the steps you’re taking…
before the compounding starts to take off…
and that’s what most people do.
That’s why most programs “fail”…
It’s not really that the program doesn’t work, or even that it
takes too long to see results.
Rather, it’s just that most people don’t understand the Law of
Incremental Change and Compounding Results, and they “pull out”
before the magic starts to happen.
Take a few minutes to ponder this throughout today, and leave your comments and questions on today’s lesson below.
I look forward to hearing from you!
Tomorrow we’ll talk about the one key barrier you must release to heal. See you there!
