Before you begin your personal 12 week body sculpting journey you must ask yourself a very important question: How serious am I about transforming my body and my life? On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your current level of seriousness as you begin this new stage in your fitness journey?
Why are you this serious about sculpting your body and life? Why did you decide to embark on this new stage in your fitness journey and follow this new program? Why even exercise at all? After all, it’s hard work and it can be time consuming. It’s so much easier to just sit on the couch. Plus, compared to the ‘norm’ you may not look too bad, so why not just settle for an average body and average life?
This is the very first step in your fitness journey. Do not continue without spending some quality time reflecting and responding to these questions. I couldn’t be more serious! I do not want you to lift a single weight, prepare a single meal, or continue reading this book until you have answered the above question with all your purpose and passion.
Grab a journal or notepad and spend 10-20 minutes brainstorming just how serious you are about transforming your body and life. Once you complete your brainstorming session I would like you to create an EMPOWERING paragraph in response to the question...
I am so ridiculously serious about sculpting my body and life that I am willing to...
I am this ridiculously serious about sculpting my body and life because.

I take great pride in my health and physical appearance. I believe that my body is a billboard. My physical health and appearance say a lot about my drive, character, dedication, values, and ability to achieve the goals that I set out to accomplish.
I believe that there is a direct correlation between my level of fitness and my family’s freedom and happiness. When I am in great physical shape and health I have more energy to play with my kids and be ultra attentive to my wife’s needs and concerns. When I am in great physical shape and health, my business experiences great success. The more successful I am in business, the more freedom I have to take my family on vacations. My family’s freedom and happiness means more to me than anything in this world and I am willing to do whatever it takes to preserve it.
I am a role model to my children, to you, and to tens of thousands of people around the world. I refuse to let my children down, and I certainly refuse to let you down. I take great pride in the fact that my actions inspire others to become the best that they can be.
Bottom line, I’m doing this for me. I experience the most joy and happiness out of life by living in an active, healthy, and vibrant body. I want, need, and MUST live life to the fullest. My life is a gift. As far as I know, I only get to live once. I MUST make the absolute most out of it!
I’m going to get all Jedi Master on you and share the famous quote from Master Yoda after Luke Skywalker says, “I’ll give It a try”...
Yoda follows that up with “No! Try not! Do... or do not. There is no try.
When you say the words,
“I’ll try”, how do they come out of your mouth? Typically in a ho-hum voice... correct?
What’s your body language look like when you utter those words? Slouched, scrunched face, and shrugged shoulders. You look as if you are already defeated and you haven’t even “Tried” it yet.
Compare this to the times when you have been 100% certain that you will DO a
Specific task and achieve your goal. Were you full of excitement, confidence, and passion when you shared the goal that you were about to conquer? Did your face light the room, were you standing tall and proud, and did you have your fist pumping in the air?
These are defining moments in your journey. Saying that you are going to “TRY” this Metabolic Masterpiece 12 week Body Sculpting Program implies that you are going to give a half-assed effort. With this kind of effort you can expect half-assed results.
Right now you are at a fork in the road. To the left is the path where you can “TRY” the Metabolic Masterpiece Body Sculpting Program. To the right is the path where you “WILL DO” this Metabolic Masterpiece Program. Two different paths that will produce two different outcomes.
The “TRY” path is heavily worn down during the first 100 meters, but just beyond that there is a pebble in the middle of the road and you can see that a large majority of the previous travelers turned around at this point and went back to where they came from. A few people persevered and got around the pebble only to face a 5% incline in the road just ahead. All but one person turned around in the face of this new challenge. But moments later the lone person came across a fallen tree on the road, threw his hands in the air and said, “I give up!”
The “DO” path has not experienced the great level of traffic as the “TRY” path, but there is something peculiarly different about this path. All the footprints are moving forward. No one turned back. As we travel along the path we see the chunks of rock that once formed a giant boulder, but someone blasted through it in order to continue on their journey. We then notice that a bridge is out in front of us, but the first woman to approach it had decided to call upon the help of others to throw a couple of ropes across and build a temporary suspension bridge to help her get across and continue “DOING” what she set out to do. We come across many obstacles and challenges along this path and at every one of them, there are signs that the travelers had found a way to get around, go under, go over, or simply blast through them.
At the end of the road there are signs of celebration. Streamers and empty champagne glasses are everywhere. “We are the champions” is playing on the sound system. There are journals on the table, which tell the story of each travelers journey, their challenges and their triumphs. But there’s also something very strange going on. There is nobody here. Each traveler took their moment to soak in their achievement, celebrate their victory, and then moved onto a new path and a new goal. They approached this new path with great enthusiasm and a deep belief that they “WILL” get to the end of the road and reach their destination.
Now my question to you is... “Are you NOT going to do this Metaboiic Masterpiece Body Sculpting Program or are you going to DO IT?"
There is no question that it’s going to be hard work to achieve your fat loss goals. The Metabolic Masterpiece workouts are very intense. Making positive changes to your nutrition plan will be challenging in the beginning and you will be faced with temptations. There is also no question that the
Greater the effort that you put into your body transformation, the more rewarding this journey will be for you.
