Are You An Achiever When It Comes To Eating Right For Quick Weight Loss?
Posted Nov 29 2010 10:42am
I just finished reading a book called Strengths Finder 2.0. I read it to help me determine my strengths and weaknesses. The idea is to focus on your strengths and hire someone or delegate someone to take care of your weaknesses.
There have been numerous studies done showing that you are better off focusing on your strengths rather than always trying to improve your weaknesses. Ask for help with the weaknesses.
This relates to weight loss in many ways.
1. If you are an achiever then you are always looking for that next challenge. You are never satisfied resting on your laurels. You are always looking for new healthy meals.
2. If you are a competitor then you are always looking to compare yourself to others. How do you rank amongst your peers. Are you eating right compared to others following good nutrition?
3. Consistency is one of your weaknesses. If that is so then hire someone to keep you consistent. Hire a personal trainer, become a member of Five Week Fat Loss . Follow a scripted program that guides you week by week to keep you consistent.
Don’t try to always improve your weaknesses. Focus on your strengths. If you are an achiever, but have problems with consistency then focus on losing that 20 pounds, but enlist the help of others to achieve that consistency. Focus on achieving your next goal and not dwell on how you will be consistent with it. That is what a personal trainer or Five Week Fat Loss is for.
Jan Grant realized her weakness and instead of trying to improve it herself she focused on her strengths and enlisted help to take care of her weakness.
"I can tell you that after about 10 days of the Five Week Fat Loss program, I have lost nearly five pounds, feel better and look forward to losing more weight.
I have already shared my belief in the Five Week Fat Loss program because after many jump starts with trying various approaches to diet and exercise, I am convinced this is a very predictable, manageable, nutritional program and it doesget results. I really like having the sample menus laid out and that allows me to make sure I’m prepared with all the groceries I will need. I love having new recipes that integrate what I’ve learned in the 5-week Fat Loss program into practical application."

For some this is a really hard thing to do because many of us are wired to always want to improve our weaknesses and don’t focus on what we are good at.
Determine your strengths and weaknesses and then enlist the help of others to take care of the weaknesses for you.
I know you can do it!
Yours in good health,
