[center]The Three F’s[/center]
Are you ready for the V-Diet? Not everyone is. It’s not a diet to adopt lightly, nor is it a nutrition plan for someone “thinking of maybe losing a few pounds or something.”
No one has ever achieved great things by “kinda sorta” wanting it.
The truth is, I’ve talked a lot of people out of doing the Velocity Diet over the last three years. They weren’t serious. They didn’t display a sense of determination. And most of all, they didn’t possess any of the “three F’s.”
Those who succeed are:
1) Frustrated: Do you think you look okay? Good enough? Have you had long term success with previous diets? Think you know everything about how to exercise and eat right? Then the Velocity plan isn’t for you.
J. Willard Marriott, the hotel executive, once said that dissatisfaction is the basis of progress. When we become satisfied in the business world, we become obsolete. It’s true for business and it’s true for health, fitness, and life in general. There are people in this world who are content with their bodies, their income levels, and their places in life. Good for them (I guess) but I’m not that way. I bet you aren’t either.
Some of us constantly seek improvement in all areas of our lives, and that includes our health and the way our bodies look. Dissatisfied and frustrated people are the catalyst of change. And they do great on the V-Diet.
2) Furious: My journey to leanness began when I put my fist through a mirror. And the truth is, I’ve never seen anyone make a drastic change in their body without first getting really, really angry.
After the frustration stage, the type of person who’s truly ready for the Velocity Diet experiences anger – anger at himself and anger at what he’s allowed himself to become. While others fall into the trap of feeling sorry for themselves or blaming others, the person primed for the V-Diet gets mad at himself. They’re better than this. And they’re ready to prove it.
I’m more of an ass-kicker than a hand-holder. The Velocity plan is the same, and you better be ready for it. If you’re mad and not going to take it anymore, then the V-Diet is for you.
3) Focused: People who succeed with this diet make the decision that they’re going to follow the plan perfectly for 28 days. They develop a mindset for success. How do you do that? You simply decide to do it.
It sounds simple, but it works. Most people start a diet with only vague goals in mind. They say they’re going to “eat better” and “train harder” but they don’t have a real plan, no starting date, no ending date… no real goal.
Many people don’t make a determined promise to themselves, a strong statement of “I will do this and I will succeed,” because doing so is scary. They’re afraid to fail, so they never really begin. They have hazy ideas about planning to lose fat, but they never truly decide to do it.
The V-Diet will give you the plan you need, but it’s up to you to decide to follow it, come hell or high water. Decide now. Are you ready to change your body? Grit your teeth, clench your fist, and make the decision. Today. Right now.
