6 Simple Questions to MAXIMIZE Your Weight Loss MOTIVATION


Have you ever wanted to help someone get really motivated to eat healthier or maybe even you’ve wanted more motivation to eat healthier? If so, in this video, I’m
going to reveal to you six science based questions
that’ll help anyone, even yourself, be more motivated to stick to your healthy eating plan. Recently, I’ve been reading a book called Instant Influence. It was written by a therapist who’s on the faculty of
Yale School of Medicine. His name is Michael Pantalon. The subtitle of his book is, How to get anyone to do anything – Fast. I read his book with fascination because much of it
really resonated with me. It’s based on a lot of science and it matches a lot of
my first hand experience with helping people change. He says that if we want to
influence anyone to change, we have to stop trying
to force them into it by blaming, shaming, and guilting. By the way, I don’t think
guilting is actually a real word, but it works for this discussion, so I’m going to go with it, okay? So let me ask you, have you ever tried to change
your spouse or your child by blaming, shaming, or guilting them? Well, let me tell you from
first hand experience, it doesn’t work. In fact, it will backfire
on you 100% of the time. But the crazy thing is that we, as humans, are naturally inclined to blame, shame, and guilt people to try
to change them, it’s weird. Instead, the author
says that we should ask self-assessment questions if
we want to be able to influence someone into changing. And he has six self-assessment questions that get right to the heart of
behavior change for a person. So, as I ask you these six questions, try to mentally answer them. Write them down and ponder on them, okay. So the first question is, what are some reasons that
you should lose weight or try to get more healthy? In other words, tell
me why someone like you should lose weight? What could be some good
reasons for you to change? The second question is,
on a scale from one to 10, how much do you want to lose weight? One being, you don’t want
to at all and 10 being, I’ll do just about
anything to lose weight. For instance, are you willing to pay a couple hundred dollars
a month to lose weight? Are you willing to get up
at 5:00 a.m. every morning to lose weight? This question is going
to reveal to yourself how ready you are to make
the necessary sacrifices that you’re going to need to
make to change your habits. The third question is why didn’t you pick a lower
number in question two? Interesting, huh? You see, this question
is going to help you to explore your motivation
to lose weight a bit deeper. This is important because in the end, if you don’t have a deep and
burning desire to lose weight, it’s going to be really hard
for you to be successful. Question number four is imagine that you’ve lost the
weight that you wanted to. What are the benefits
that you’re going to enjoy as a result of losing that weight? You see, this question
is going to help you deepen your commitment to change because it’s going to
help you to crystallize what life is going to be like when you get down to your healthy weight. Question number five is you’ve just talked about all the benefits that you’ll enjoy when you
lose the weight you want to. Why are those benefits important to you? You see, if you don’t see those benefits as being important to you, then your motivation just
isn’t going to be high enough to dig in and make the
changes in your life. And here’s the final question, number six; so what’s the next step? Or are there any next steps for you? At this point, you either
want to lose weight and you’re ready to make
the necessary changes in your lifestyle or you’re not ready. And if you’re not ready,
great, that’s okay. You’ve got choices. You’re in charge of your destiny and no one’s going to
make you do anything. And if you are ready and you’re motivated and you’re committed, what do you think your
next steps should be? Now here’s an important
point I want to make. The only people I’ve ever
seen successfully change are the ones who humble themselves and are open to receiving
advice and coaching. If you aren’t open to
receiving advice or coaching, then it means you still
have some resistance and you’re not ready to move forward. And again, that’s okay. Listen, you got a choice. No one’s going to shame
or guilt you into it. I hope as I’ve taken you
through this process, you notice this one underlying principle; no one will have lasting change
unless they really want it. I can never want
something for someone more than they want it for themselves. It never works that way,
never, I’ve tried it. You got to have to want it. And you have to want it so bad, that you’re willing to delay any type of instant
gratification to get it because losing weight and getting
healthy is a long process. It’s a marathon. And maintaining your health involves a lifetime of
daily, good decisions. And it’s within your reach,
anyone who really wants to do it and is ready to do it, can do it. Remember, when you change your habits, you’re going to change your health. And when you change your health, you’re going to change your life forever. Thanks for watching this video. Listen, if you’ve ever lost
