Fricking Fat People

Do you have any bad habits that you know you need to kick, but haven't done it yet? Maybe it's biting your nails, overeating, or overspending. Whatever the case is, the reason you haven't been able to kick that bad habit yet is because you have not associated enough pain with the bad habit to make it unbearable to you anymore. Instead you came up with euphemisms for it, saying stuff like "I'm just a nervous guy so I bite my nails," or "It runs in the family--we're terrible with numbers so we always overspend."

At UPW Tony Robbins said of overweight people: "Don't tell me that you're "a little on the chunky side," or "have big bones"! What a joke! What are big bones anyhow? Tell me and do yourself a favor by saying "I'm fucking fat!" Does that make you feel uncomfortable? Well I sure hope it does because as long as you keep making yourself feel good for doing things you know are not good for you, then you will not make progress in your life. I'm not afraid to tell you the truth in saying that you're a fucking fat person."

So to all my friends out there, do yourself a favor and say it how it is. Stop making yourself feel even slightly comfortable doing things that are not the absolute BEST for you. Settle for nothing less than what you know you need to make that next hurdle in your life.

Stop telling yourself that you will try to improve later when you can. Learn to associate pain by using language to paint a different picture of your reality. Learn to hate it!

As Tony Robbins so elegantly put it: "Say it out loud! I'M FUCKING FAT AND I FUCKING HATE IT!"
