You can’t be both a Before and After Picture at the Same Time

SUCCESS TIP FROM BILL PHILLIPS

To transform your body and life, you have to want to change more than you want to stay the same.

One of the interesting contradictions of life is that we want to change, and yet at some level, we want to stay the same. But you can’t do both. Clearly, you can’t be a before photo and an after photo at the same time. Every single success story I have seen is created by the person wanting to change more than they wanted to stay the same. Sometimes people were absolutely at the end of their ropes — their health failing, their relationships suffering, their lives falling apart. Other times, people wanted to change because they knew that their lives could be even better.

Inspiration or desperation — whatever your reasons are for wanting to change, please don’t lose sight of them! If at some point during the 12 weeks you think of quitting, carefully read the reasons why you began… that can keep you going strong!

  1. So true and having done Body For Life for over a decade and transformation I can say it really works. Even when you are challenged by surgery as I have been with complications for months now, doing whatever part of it you can or more really makes the difference and can help you even heal faster! I like what Bill says when he says: Progress Not Perfection……It does work, give it 12 weeks and see for yourself!!

  2. How true? Do we want to look in the rear view mirror or look ahead through the windshield as a backyard philosopher once said.

  3. Thank you Bill!! I needed this! I did re read my reasons-and it gave me extra power to keep at it!!! with gratitude Terri
