The Five Things Tool (And How it Makes Weight Loss a By-Product)

I’m always telling people that weight loss isn’t the real goal. It’s just the by-product of getting your mindset right.

The more weight loss becomes a by-product in your life, the more weight you’re going to lose.

Getting rid of your problems and making changes in your life are the real goals.

So here’s what I want you to do.

Grab a piece of paper and write down the numbers 1 to 5. Now, list five things that you want to improve.

Get really specific here. For example, one of your things might be to eat less sugar. Or you might want to consume less caffeine. Maybe you want to knock alcohol on the head.

These five things can be anything as long as they’re specific to you.

Once you’ve got your list, attach a rating to each of your five things. Just a number from 1 to 10 to describe the amount of pain this problem causes you. The higher the number, the more pain.

If you’re following my 21-day plan, you’ve done this already. If you’re not, this is the kick-off point.

Over the next three weeks, focus on the five things you wrote down. Start making changes that are going to help you solve those five problems.

At the end of the 21 days, come back to your list.

Now I want you to follow two steps.

First, re-rate each item on the list. Give each item a number from 1 to 10 based on the amount of pain it’s causing you after 21 days.

Hopefully, it’s going to be a lower number than it was the first time around.

That right there is enough to give you a boost.

Secondly, I want you to write 100 words on your transformation for each item. What did you do differently that helped you to drop that rating? What might you do differently if you didn’t drop the number?

You’re charting your progress!

It’s so simple, but it gives you something to look back on. When your head isn’t doing you any favours, you can use this list to see how far you’ve come.

Work on those problems and weight loss becomes a by-product.

I believe in you.
