How Arnold Schwarzenneger Became a Weight-Loss Guru with One Simple Statement

  When you move your body, what do you think about?

Does that sound like a silly question?  Maybe you’ve never thought about such a concept.  Yet, if you’re not purposely thinking the right thoughts, you’re wasting a precious opportunity.

Quantum physics tells us that the outer world (what we see) is created by our inner world (how we feel).  (Click that link to Tweet it) What we believe is what we see and what we focus on is what we get more of.  So, given that knowledge, doesn’t it make sense that if you focus on the right things when you’re moving, you’ll see better results?

Why “I’ll Be Back” Should Be The Title of Arnold’s Self-Help Book

Arnold Schwarzenegger, when he was winning “Mr. Olympia” world titles, said that people who want to grow their muscles should be flexing them at all times.  I believe Schwarzenegger was unwittingly making reference to the quantum concept that what we focus on grows.  I realize that, logically, his statement can be explained by saying that if you flex your muscles their fibers will be stretched as they fill with blood – which will make them grow.  That is the physical explanation, and, yet, the quantum explanation also applies.

You’ve probably never thought of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a quantum physics expert, yet I suggest you take Arnold’s suggestion to heart. (Click that link to Tweet it) Because, as I’ve explained, he is correct in more ways than one.

How to Coax and Encourage Your Muscles for Maximum Efficiency

When you are moving your body, focus on the muscles you’re using.  Your hamstrings, your thighs, your calves, your buttocks, etc. are all working – focus on them and flex them as you move.  Imagine them growing stronger as you use them and they will.

The same goes for your abdominal muscles, your chest, your shoulders, your biceps, your forearms, and so on.  Flex them when you use them.  Focus on them.  Imagine them growing stronger with use.

And don’t just focus on them and flex them; send loving encouraging thoughts to them.  Literally.

Why You Aren’t a Machine and Should Never Treat Your Body Like It’s Broken

Remember that your body is not a machine; holism has replaced the machine paradigm.  We now know that your body’s systems (like your muscles) are more like independent entities, free-agents if you will, who are all voluntarily cooperating to make the larger unit (the total, physical “you”) work.  So don’t ever scold your muscles or berate them with your thoughts – love them, uplift them, and encourage them with your thoughts.

In addition to focusing on them and flexing them.

This concept, by the way, applies to simply walking to your office, walking up the stairs in your home, carrying in your groceries, vacuuming your home, etc.  Just as much as when you’re walking, jogging, lifting weights, or doing any other type of workout.

What Happens If You Try These Techniques Today?

These techniques, remember, are based on hard, scientific data.  Not it- sounds-good, I-hope-it-works philosophy.  And, since you’re going to be walking, lifting things, and otherwise using your muscles all day, every day, anyway – why not try it and see what happens?

I can tell you what you’ll find.  Your body will improve through the process (for many reasons).  I guarantee it.

Why You Probably Shouldn’t Look in the Mirror if You Want to Lose Your Unwanted Weight

  Quantum physics tells us that each observer has her own universe.  That’s meant to be taken literally , which means reality is completely subjective.

Reality is so subjective, in fact, that I’d be willing to bet that you have a different image of your body than almost everyone else does.

Some People’s Brains Play Horrible, Even Deadly, Tricks on Them

We’ve all heard about people who suffer from anorexia and, while I’m not qualified to speak definitely about that disorder, I do know that these folks see their body vastly differently than you and I would.  Where you and I might see a nice-looking man or woman, folks with anorexia look in the mirror and see an ugly, fat person.  Because that’s what she believes she looks like and that’s the unfortunate side of reality’s subjectivity.

And here’s where  “…each observer has her own universe…” becomes so important to embrace.  For that anorexic person I just described, since her body is ugly and fat to her, she doesn’t just “see” her body as ugly and fat, her body really is ugly and fat. To her.  But that’s all that matters, even when everyone else tells her that is it is not ugly and fat.  Because that is what she believes about her body that is her reality.

I certainly hope you don’t suffer from such a drastic body image incongruence, but I do know you have a body image of yourself that you see every time you look in the mirror.  We all do.  And that image has nothing to do with how your body “really looks”, because there is no such thing as how your body “really looks” except how you see itYour body image is your reality; you see what you believe.

How Your Body Image is Created By You and Is Yours Alone

And since what your body looks like (to you) is completely self-created, losing your unwanted weight is as much a journey to form a new body image as it is a journey to eat differently and exercise more often.  In other words, you can radically change your diet, eating only raw food like a rabbit, and also become the ultimate workout warrior, putting Jillian Michaels to shame, but without reforming your personal body image, you will still see that same overweight person when you look in the mirror.

Sound crazy?  If you believe that people with anorexia do this, isn’t it also easy to see that we all do the same thing?  We look in the mirror and we see what we believe we are.

You have unwanted weight and you’ve been eating better and exercising more often.  Yet your weight loss largely remains elusive.  You already know the reason – your body image, what you believe you look like, hasn’t changed and, until it does, all the lettuce and stairclimber workouts in the world won’t give you the body you desire.

Yikes!  Are You Sick and Tired of Seeing That Unwanted Body Staring Back at You in the Mirror Like I Was?

So what should you do, right now, to begin changing your body image?  Run, don’t walk, to Amazon to secure a copy of Why Quantum Physicists Don’t Get Fat.

And, in meantime, here is a “street level” tip that might sound elementary, but it is created straight from the amazing science of quantum physics and kick starts your mental evolution: Don’t ever look in the mirror (and assess your body) unless you feel good about yourself and your weight.
