Making a body transformation is mostly mental.

Today is a very special day for me. That’s right: today is my delts, traps and calves workout!

Some of you may think I’m kidding around (if you don’t get the joke, don’t worry about it), but I’m really not. Take a few minutes to honestly assess your level of desire. Do you look forward to your workouts, or do you dread them? Do you latch onto every possible excuse to miss your workout, or do you plow through those obstacles like they don’t exist? Are you committed, or are you merely going through the motions?

If you truly dislike what you are doing and every day is a struggle, then you must make a change. If you don’t make a change then eventually you will fail. Most of the time the changes I’m talking about need to happen in your mind.

Negative thinking was a huge problem for me when I first began to lose weight back in 2003. This is a very common issue among people who have a poor self-image, as many overweight people do. Personally I’d become so cynical and bitter that I literally had to re-learn how to perceive the world around me. These changes didn’t happen overnight, but I made a concerted effort to recognize and stop negative thinking. Focusing on the positive changes I was making helped me to also see all the good around me. You might be surprised how empowering this is. It’s terribly easy to only see the bad things in this world – I call the people who do that “lazy thinkers”.

I’ve learned a thing or two over the past four years, and one thing I’m absolutely certain of is that making a transformation to your body is maybe 5% physical. Once you’ve got your mind in the game, you’ll be able to do anything you want.
