Steph Curry's weight loss secret
I saw a commercial the other night, that in true American sports fashion was an over-dramatized highlight reel of Steph Curry’s life, dubbed with pithy sayings expressing the thoughts in his head during the pivotal moments that got him to where he is today.
The last image was of him winning a championship, then a fade to black…
He stares straight at the camera, saying:
“The mind is where every challenge I’ve ever faced has been won or lost.”
He disappears, and the words “Train the mind. The body will follow” take over the screen.
The ad was for a big insurance company.
Which was highly amusing to me because the message is so anti-the-traditional-medical-establishment, it would make most western MD’s laugh their pants off.
But celebrity and drama is a selling combo. And who knows, maybe this insurance company has actually caught on to Steph Curry’s secret. It would certainly save them big buckeroos.
Anyway, my main point here is that the idea that every battle is fought first in your mind, and then in your body, is commonly accepted in the sports world.
And almost nowhere else.
It’s like a not-very-secret secret.
I don’t know much about sports but from what I can tell, almost ALL sports superstars do some kind of mental training, in addition to their physical training.
Getting your mind aligned with where you want your body to go is considered JUST as important as working out.
Big tough guys talk about visualization like eating Wheaties for breakfast. Nobody poo-poos it. And it’s certainly not considered woo-woo.
Cause it works.
Yet the rest of society bumbles along huffing and puffing, counting calories, cleansing and eliminating, all while ignoring this essential mind component because they either don’t know about it, or they don’t believe it makes that big a difference.
But it does make a difference.
A huge one.
And, the great thing is you don’t have to be an athlete or superstar to tap into the power of your mind.
You just have to know how.
That's what we teach here:
