Lewis Hamilton is the youngest ever Formula 1 World Champion. At 23 he has the world at his feet. But isn’t it amazing how true talent always shines through?
It’s the mark of a true champion when they make it look so easy. As you watch, in the back of your mind always the thought that you could have done it just as well. The reality would be somewhat different! Do you have the self-discipline, self-confidence, determination and dedication to be a world champion? Would you be prepared to put in all the practice? Would you be single-minded enough? Would you put in the effort?
The simple truth is that if you want to succeed in anything you have to make an effort. All of us need to adopt the same disciplines that Lewis Hamilton used to become world champion – perhaps in a slightly less intense way – to achieve our goals.
Every world champion can teach us a lesson. In nearly every case it boils down to the fact that success in anything doesn’t come easily, you have to work at it.
Perhaps it’s time that we all became a little more suspicious of people and programs that offered us an easy way out. Today we are bombarded by diets and weight loss programs that promise instant weight loss with the minimum of effort. The results speak for themselves – transitory short-term success. Long-term success remains a dream.
The bottom line is that if you want to achieve permanent weight loss then you’re going to have to work at it. You need Lewis Hamilton’s determination and self-discipline if you are to succeed.
This may seem a tough call, but it’s not as bad as it sounds. What you need is a program that will help you to make change and give you support at the same time. Permanent weight loss is really only possible if you are prepared to make personal change and learn to live your life in a different way – in other words you make things happen rather than letting things happen to you!
Want to lose weight? Find a program that offers you a roadmap to change. Change comes when you understand where you’ve come from and when you are prepared to learn new habits – slim habits. By learning new habits you will be able to make the changes in your life that will allow you to achieve permanent weight loss.
