I say all the time that motivation isn't something that strikes the fortunate. Not at all, in fact. Motivation is something you have to CHOOSE to create EVERY day! Of course, as soon as I say that, the first and most obvious question is "how??" In today's episode we're tackling just that - how to create motivation. I am going to share 11 powerful motivators from my favorite book, Ryan Holiday's The Obstacle Is The Way.

In today's episode we'll be tackling all these questions and more!
There is a legit problem that keeps many people from reaching their fat loss and fitness goals. Actually, there are two major problems:
Lying about our options to make ourselves feel better.

You know the steps. Check the pilot light, etc. But we tend to lack that strategic thinking when it comes to food and fat loss. In today's episode, I will help you create your own Standard Operating Procedure for how to bounce back after a rough day, weekend or month.

Not only that, I'm going to give you access to a worksheet you can use to understand your own cravings to accelerate your progress in banishing them. Let's dive in.
