20lbs in 3 months!

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

You’re probably wondering what on earth I’m talking about with the header line: “20 pounds in 3 months”

Well, I’ll tell you… and in doing so I’ll be explaining a KEY component to achieving your goals (financial or otherwise). You see, like most Americans, I have a little bit of a “weight problem”. But it’s not what you think…

My problem is that I it’s hard for me to GAIN weight. I’ve been skinny my whole life and for years I was just as self-conscious about it as overweight people are about their weight.

Back in 2000/2001 (when I had just graduated from college) I was 6’2″ and an anemic 137lbs (Yes- I was that skinny!!). Between January 2001 and July 2007 I gained about 20 pounds “naturally”. Meaning that people just naturally gain weight as they get older.

I constantly bitched and moaned about hating my weight but I would never go into the gym for more than a month at at time and I would never CONSISTENTLY take my weight gain supplements that I spent a fortune on.

Then, in July of 2007, something happened that caused a lot of pain in my life…yup you guessed it..A GIRL!!

We’ll call her the “Little Miss B$#@H” – lol

Anyway…when we broke up I got REALLY motivated to change my life and reach the goals that I had set for myself several years earlier.
Don’t ask me what a break-up has to do with going to the gym… but hey, I was motivated, so might as well put the motivation to good use!

I hired a personal trainer and hit the gym hard. I followed a workout plan, doubled my caloric intake, and in 3 months I went from 157lbs to 177lbs.

It felt so good to FINALLY feel comfortable walking around in a just a T-Shirt! So, what’s the point of me telling you this?

Simple…

At any point in time between Jan 1st 2001 and July 1st 2007 I could have followed a workout plan, doubled my caloric intake, hired a trainer, and gained 20 pounds of muscle in 3 months. The ONLY thing stopping me was ME

It’s the same in business…

At anytime between 2001 (when I first started) and 2006 (when I started making money) I could have
– gotten a business plan from ONE successful marketer
– put on my blinders
– taken consistent action everyday
– built my list
– etc…

The only thing stopping me was ME!

Instead of reading about gaining weight and buying expensive supplements; I should have been eating more and hitting the gym! Instead of reading about making money and buying home study courses; I should have been focusing on driving traffic to ONE website!

I think you get the point

I hope this little bit of insight into my life has been helpful 😉

Now its your turn to get super focused!

    Hi Devon, I was on the webinar conducted by you and John. signed up for the Twitter program, and am looking forward to sept. 8th and future success. Have a great one.

  2. Hey Devon,

    I have to say, it surely was
    noticed when I saw you at
    the StomperNet event in
    Atlanta a few weeks back.

    It had been months since
    I’d last saw you and if you
    remember… I asked you if
    you were putting on size.

    In good way! :o)

    Continue to get your workout on!

    Won’t Be Denied,
