Do you wish you were different? Better? More successful?
Would you like to be thinner? Have better habits? And feel more positive about life?
You may think that change is hard, that it takes time. But it really doesn’t have to be.
I believe that lasting change happens in an instant.
Sure, this goes against mainstream belief. Most believe that change has to be a struggle. They expect to try and fail numerous times before ultimately losing or succeeding.
For example, how many people do you know who struggle with their weight? These are people who want to make a healthy change by getting in shape, but the change never seems to happen.
What is the biggest part of your life that you want to change? Do you have inches to lose? Do you have preventable diabetes? Do you have a pair of skinny jeans that you want to fit into? Or maybe you have an unreached goal completely unrelated to fitness.
What specifically is keeping you from making this change in your life?
According to professional speaker and author, Tony Robbins, it’s the preparation for change that takes times. In the end there’s a single instant when the change occurs.
Use these 3 steps to instantly create a lasting change and a reinvented you.
Step #1 to Reinvent Yourself: Believe that something in your life must change. Do you kinda want to get into shape, or do you absolutely have to lose the weight? Does dropping a few pounds sound nice, or is living another day in your current body simply unbearable? In order to reinvent yourself, you must believe wholeheartedly that things must change.
Step #2 to Reinvent Yourself: Believe that you must change it. It is vital that you take full responsibility in making the change rather than assigning responsibility elsewhere. Sure, others may help you, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to want this change enough to make it your personal mission—no one else can do it for you.
Step #3 to Reinvent Yourself: Believe that you can change it. Don’t let past failures get you down. The truth is that you are capable of amazing things when you put your mind to it. Believe that you are able to lose weight or to make any other positive change in your life.
Why do most people fail to make change stick? They rely on willpower. This works for awhile, but you’ll soon revert back to what’s comfortable. The solution?
Change what you are comfortable with.
People are motivated by two things: 1) to avoid pain and 2) to gain pleasure. When you want to change a behavior pattern the key is to associate pain with the behavior that you don’t want and pleasure with the behavior that you do want.
You know that you want to lose weight and that to do so you need to quit eating comfort food late at night. You also know that you need to start exercising on a regular basis. Up until this point your brain is trained to associate pleasure with eating comfort food late at night and to associate pain with exercise.
It’s time to retrain your brain to feel good about exercise and to feel bad about eating late at night. Think about all of the negative things about being overweight and connect these unpleasant thoughts to your late night snack. Now think about all of the wonderful things about being in shape and connect these pleasant thoughts to exercise.

Low-Carb Roasted Asparagus Pasta
You’ll need a spiral slicer for this recipe, in order to create long, noodle strands out of zucchini. If you don’t already have a spiral slicer, it’s a great tool that makes low-carb noodles quickly and easily. The addition of roasted asparagus to this pasta is simply delicious. Enjoy! Servings: 4
Here’s what you need:
1 bunch, organic asparagus
1 teaspoon olive oil
dash of sea salt and pepper
5 organic zucchini
2 Tablespoons sun dried tomatoes, chopped
For the dressing:
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 Tablespoons yellow onion, chopped
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sweet paprika
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup fresh chives, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Trim the ends off the asparagus, and chop into ½ inch pieces. Place in a medium bowl and combine with the olive oil and a dash of salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
Trim the ends from the zucchini and use a veggie peeler to remove the green skin. Cut the zucchini in half, width-wise, then run through a spiral slicer to create long, angel hair noodles. Place the noodles in a large bowl. Add the sun dried tomatoes and roasted asparagus.
In a small bowl combine all of the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the noodle salad and mix well to combined.
