No pills, no potions, just hard work.

Coincidentally, some teammates and I were making comments on this very matter the last couple days. So much information out there, promises, hypes..... When I ran across this, it is exactly true.

The Original (and ONLY) FAT Reducer.
by Shawn Phillips

Just when you think you've tried everything...

There's this.... Okay, maybe not this gadget but there's always a new pill, program or diet strategy.

What are you really buying... (see below)

That's really it. Right. It's simply H-O-P-E.

Hope for a better future, hope for a brighter day. Hope for more love, joy and happiness.

Sure, six packs abs would be nice but come on... what do we really want but to feel like
we matter, like we have a chance, like we're gonna win one.

Good Golly I love HOPE and the human spirit.

The damned thing is that this HOPE is also a weakness--or an opening for others who'll
use your hope to fulfill theirs.

They HOPE you buy the HOPE they are selling.

And you know, some times we all do. And when we do, we may get a good surge of hopeful
energy only to find ourselves without hope...

Hope Isn't Out There...

May I take this moment to remind you of what you already know... deep down... Hope
and all the potential that exists to achieve all that you can dream isn't out there.... It's IN HERE. It's inside you. It's your spirit, your heart, your passion... it just needs a spark
to light it some times...

And let's face it, that spark comes from seeing the light in others, in connection, in stories of
others who are living thier purpose.

When you need a lift, when you need a spark, skip the pills, forget the new diet book and
reach out and lend a hand.

Nothing picks up our own spirit like sharing your Strength, light and love with another.

And if they need some hope, or help in getting thier Mojo back... tell them what you
know is true:

"Work the basics. Get back to the fundamentals."
- Set a clear, simple Goal

- Eat clean, healthy food

- Train with intention and intensity

- Journal your positive thoughts

- Clear your mind and focus

It's what works. Now. Always has. Always will.

    Great Article, Kris.
    Thanks so much for posting it.

    It is definitely TRUE, TRUE, TRUE.

    The BASICS are the only way to go.
    I'm grateful that there are so many options as far as 'method' goes.
    I'd be S.O.L. if, say - Running was the only 'way' to go.
    I am learning that what works for me -- works for me.
    I don't need to keep trying new things.
    Just stick with the basics.

    Great post.
