A tale of a non-runner, November Project, & a Turkey Trot! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving week. Mine was pretty interesting because I decided to run a Turkey Trot! These races vary from a 1mile fun-run to a 5k, but I let my friends talk me into running an 8-mile turkey trot. That’s the […]
A lot of people ask me how I’ve kept off the one hundred pounds I’ve lost and it’s an easy question to answer. Consistency. Before I became Coach Jimmy and built my seven figure home based business, I was just Jimmy Nelson trying to lose some weight and be happier with myself. I didn’t like how I looked or how I felt and I knew that losing weight would be the change I needed to live a happier, more fulfilling life.
Dream big, act small is my new mantra. What do I mean by it? I’m glad you asked. I’ve talked to thousands of people over the last 8 years as a Coach and I keep hearing how hard it is for them to hit their goals. Whether it’s a weight loss, training, or business development goal, it just stays out of their reach or they lose steam along the way. Naturally, my first question for them after hearing this is, “Well, what’s your goal?” and it’s some pie in the sky goal like losing 100 pounds, making a million dollars by 30, or owning a Ferrari.
I know that sticking to your weight loss goals can be tough. I’ve been there. I’m still there. I’m just like you. I’m a vain guy and I get caught up in comparing myself to others. It’s so easy to ask “Why can’t I look like that?” question in your head when you see someone else pass you on the street.
