Great story about Tsunami survivor and his belief system, it’s a case of you can NOT you can’t.
Faced with certain death after the surf tour boat he was on capsized, lawyer Rob Marino’s only option was to squeeze from a tiny porthole or concede the immediate fate of death.
Faced with this situation, Rob decided to choose life and managed to squeeze from this tiny orifice.
From Rob “You are left with two choices, you either make an effort to survive but I didn’t want to do”
Quite often the motivating factor can determine whether you make the effort or not to reach your goals, living is a pretty good motivating factor.
When we say sticking to a diet or an exercise program is too hard, we are really saying that we don’t won’t to, ultimately it comes down to the deeper reasons why we resist, a behavior or thought process that was created in the past. This is often not addressed and can lead to failure to achieve your weight lose or fitness goals.
However when faced with a life or death situation, suddenly survival becomes a motivating factor and our deeper reasons for resistance are over ruled by instinct.
If you don’t undertake the prescribed weight loss or exercise program, you will not die, although a lifetime of abuse can lead to cardiovascular and heart disease.
However throw into the equation if you don’t stop drinking alcohol or smoking that you will die within 6 months or alternatively you are a father of 2 young children and you risk having a heart attack, then suddenly the motivating force is once again a fatal outcome.
So maybe mentally you may not be ready, it’s all too hard or hopefully you aren’t faced with a life or death situation to achieve a change in your thinking.
