During the Fat Burner Series we are going to be addressing our urges and cravings and over-desire. We are going to do that by learning how to use the thought model.
The thought model is universal truth, you can google it and just about any self-help book written talks about it. I am going to show you how to actually use it for anything in which you want a different outcome.
When you learn how to use it, you can use it to overcome anything! That’s a powerful statement but I know because I have used it and overcome some pretty heavy stuff.
Here ya go…
- Circumstances trigger thoughts
- Thoughts trigger emotions
- Emotions become the fuel that drive behavior
- Behaviors and actions or inactions drive results
Circumstances are always, always, always neutral. It’s what you make them mean with your thoughts that make them good or bad, positive or negative. Those thoughts then trigger the emotions or feelings and that becomes your fuel for action /no action or reaction and that drives results.
Circumstances being neutral was a really hard concept for me to grasp because “he pissed me off or he makes me so happy” were common thoughts that I had.
Its human nature to look outside of ourselves and to blame others for our feelings or give credit to others for making us happy, but the truth is, we control our feelings and emotions by how we think about things. And that my friend is where our power to overcome cravings and urges lies.
Watch the video link to here for examples and a not so flattering personal experience.
You might be wondering what this has to do with becoming a fat burner. It has everything to do with it. It’s because of the “results line” that we need to learn about the thought model and learn how to use if we want to get different results, so hang with me.
I am going to be using the thought model a lot as we learn how to manage thoughts and emotions that drive our eating behaviors (cravings and urges) so that we can have the outcome and results that we want.
If it were as easy as “just changing your thought” we would all be doing it already. There is a lot more to it. It’s simple but not easy. I will teach you the steps.
If you are willing to put in the work, you will see the results.
The next video is going to talk about the road map for week 1 in converting your body to a fat burner.
