very little I enjoy more than meeting people who have changed
their lives. Very often they thank me, and my response
is always the same.
didn't do it. You did it." All I
do is simply give people the information they need, and that
information offers the power to change. Thankfully I
got to meet 500 of you on February 1, 2001. Some of
you already made a positive change, others are just getting
ready to take the step. Either way, you deserve commendation.
A concern for the way you look and feel is not a selfish concern,
but rather a selfless one. There is nothing better that
you can do for the people you love than make certain you're
the best you can be. Then, and only then, can you optimally
give, and when that giving comes back in rewards tenfold,
you'll understand where my passion comes from.
After a seminar
people ask me how long it took me to learn all of this.
My answer is, "from the moment I was born until now."
People still want "tips." They just want to
acquire some great wisdom that will suddenly give them the
power to change. A tip won't do it. Understanding
In 8th Grade
Mr. Sussman was my Physics teacher. He was a nut.
He dropped a bowling ball off of his desk to teach us the
principles of gravity. He taught us to make "stink
bombs" using "products you can find under the sink"
and in the process, cleared out the whole school. At
the time I didn't think I'd ever use anything I learned from
him. I remember the Periodic Table of Elements and his
lectures on molecules and atoms. Everything serves us,
and on February 1, I actually used some of what Mr. Sussman
taught to illustrate the true power people have.
I explained that
in the Universe there are only five things. Sure, there
are lots of things you can mention to attempt to prove me
wrong. Ice cream cones, giraffes, protein powder, tennis
shoes, the ocean, and Pamela Anderson Lee. Those are
six things (umm...maybe seven depending how you count Pamela)!
How in the world can I back up my statement that there are
only five! Simple. If you understand a bit about
physics, you'll realize that ice cream cones, tennis shoes,
Pam, and you, are all actually the result of the five things.
Here they are:
Matter, Energy, a Universal Intelligence
in when I began to study success and achievement and was privileged
enough to come upon the works of Napolean Hill. Visions
of Mr. Sussman's class replayed in my head as I began to relate
physics to physical excellence. If we understand, at
an elemental level, what we're made of, we then gain insight
into how we can reshape it. Let's look at the five things
one at a time.
We all have time. I know sometimes it doesn't
feel that way, but we are all given 60 seconds in every minute,
60 minutes in every hour. How we use our time is up
to us. I meet many people who initially tell me they
don't have time to exercise. In reality, they've simply
used their time in such a way that they felt overwhelmed.
A careful look at priorities and a bit of time management
can help anybody fit 15 minutes of daily exercise into their
all inhabit space. Some of us inhabit more space than
others, or more in fact than we used to. We are actually
in control of how we utilize the space around us as well as
how much space our bodies actually inhabit.
are all actually made up of matter. The molecules that
form your body might have once been involved in forming the
body of Marilyn Monroe. Matter doesn't vanish, it simply
changes form. The way the molecules that make up your
body are assembled dictates how you look and feel every time
you glance in the mirror. It might feel as if those
molecules have run amok, but in reality, if you learn to modify
what you eat, what you do, and what you think about, you are
quite capable or reassembling that matter to create a vision
that pleases you.
Energy is what holds that matter together. If you learn
to utilize your energy efficiently and effectively, there
are no limits to the physical excellence you can ultimately
It stands to
reason, therefore, that we are in control of four out of the
five things that make up everything in the Universe.
The fifth we can't control, but we must understand.
is a Universal Intelligence. You can't keep a
fire burning without oxygen. It's not possible.
It's a Universal law. There are Universal laws that
apply to fat loss, but many haven't yet come to understand
them. If you attempt to lose weight by putting your
body in a state of calorie deprivation you're going to wind
up fatter in the long run! It's a Universal law!
If, however, you learn to effectively combine the right nutrition
with moderate aerobic exercise and a concern for muscle, the
law dictates that you gain control. You gain control
over time, space, matter, and energy, and that control becomes
the vital first step to placing you right inside a body you
If this seems
abstract, if you think I'm losing it, don't worry. I'm
not about to drop any bowling balls or create any "stink
bombs." I've learned to help people understand,
any way I can, the Universal Laws that dictate how we look
and feel. If you understand those laws, you'll no longer
seek out destructive diets, dangerous drugs, or bogus supplements.
seminar is not an exploration of physics. It involves
shoulder rubs, balloons, and all sorts of things that help
me to have an impact. 500 people came in to the February
1 seminar confused, 500 people had fun, 500 people became
empowered, and 500 people walked out with complete clarity.
I found the feedback so rewarding, and we've already received
so many calls asking, "when's the next one," I've
decide to do it again! June 7, my Best
You've Ever Been seminar returns to South Florida.
I can't promise balloons, but you never know what to expect.
Bring your matter with you and I'll show you how to control
time, space, and energy. You'll walk out empowered and
on your way to physical excellence.
If you're not
