(Fair warning: - the material below is very controversial with many of our readers - I receive more strongly opinionated letters on this than any other email)

Let's face it , your physical health is as important as your mental health for your overall well-being.

But mental and physical health go hand-in-hand... this is because getting in shape is just as much, if not more, a mental and emotional process as it a physical one.

Even if you get the physical results, you still need to make sure  that you make the changes needed in your mind and emotions so that your new behaviors stick.  

You don't want to be like 95% of dieters, for example, that gain all their weight back within a year of losing it.

But of course, there's always the question: "How can you  create a mindset that will help you to stick with your weight loss plan in the first place?" If you're burning up to learn this secret, that this might be one of the most important things you'll ever read...

First, Motivation is Both Positive and Negative

Many people who try to create a mindset for getting in shape only make use of the positive thoughts and emotions: having a great body, having a lot of energy, looking good naked etc. And of course, these can provide you with a powerful source of motivation and inspiration...but some days, they just aren't enough to keep you motivated and sticking with your plan.

That's where the power of negative thoughts and emotions  come in.
 
Yes, negative thoughts and emotions have power. Just think of how motivating fear is when it comes to defending your life or even running away from something that you fear. In fact, just imagine how mucheasier it would be to go jogging everyday if you had a steamroller at your heels!

In other words, negative energy is energy just as positive  energy is. The question is whether or not it's actually  driving you towards actions which will support your commitment. In fact, when you think about it, positive thoughts can  actually keep you from sticking with your commitment.

After all, if you sit in front of the TV every night and  say: "I've been doing good with my weight loss plan, I'll be  fine if I take a few days off... I've earned it." You might be thinking positive thoughts and patting yourself on the back, but you're still not sticking with your commitment.

So the  bottom line is that if you want to stay motivated to stick  with your plan, you need to learn to use both positive and  negative energy...

Belly Fat FurnaceHere are step-by-step instruction on harnessing Both Positive AND Negative Energy:

   1. You've probably already come up with several reasons why you want to get into shape, but it's important that you write ALL of them down and keep them in a place where you'll see them every day... writing things down will solidify your commitment.

   2. In addition to this, if you haven't made a dream board with  some visual reminders of what you want, and put it somewhere  that you can see it every day. This will help you to keep your  mindset focused on the positive things that you're hoping to  gain from getting in shape. But that's only half of the story...

   3. Now it's time to come up with several NEGATIVE reasons why you want  to get in shape. For example, what are the potential consequences  of being overweight? How might your health and longevity be  affected later in life? What kind of opportunities will you  miss out on to spend time with the people who you love?

   4. Do some research into the grim realities of heart disease, diabetes, gangrenous limbs (caused by diabetes), sleep apnea, erectile dysfunction and any other negative health consequences  you can think of. As you do this, your fear of these things will drive you to do something to prevent them from happening.

Together with the momentum caused by your positive desires, the fear and disgust of these negative consequences will make you a furious and determined ball of passion!

Most important, start this process right now... before you have the chance to put it off...
