7/7/7 may have been considered the luckiest day
of the century, but I don’t want you to rely on
luck to get you to your goals.
You should never leave your fat loss goals or
any other goal for that matter, to chance. At
least 97% of the people out there are simply
hoping that their dreams will come true.
How far has hoping gotten you? How often have
you been ‘lucky’?
“Wow I just got so lucky. I just came across
this great fat burning pill that will make achieving
my dream body easy. It’s everything I’ve hoped
That sounds like a success story to me
For the remainder of July I am running a contest.
On July 31st, One lucky person is going to win
a copy of all my products…
Unstoppable Fat Loss
The Fit Chic
The Fit Chic Year Of Workouts
The Fit Bastard
The Fit Bastard Year Of Workouts
And if you already own all of my products I will
give the winner a full hour one-on-one consultation
where we can talk about anything related to
achieving your dream body.
I can hear the comments already… “Wow that person
sure is lucky that they won all those products.”
A tiny bit of luck may be involved here, but the
person who wins will certainly have to earn it.
And in the process of earning this prize, (not the
actual winning of the prize), they will have taken
a step closer to achieving the body and life that
Let me explain…
For this contest you have to do a little work.
You have to spend some time reflecting on who you
are, who you want to become, and what it takes
to become that person.
Here’s the contest rules… They’re pretty simple,
but definitely not easy.
All you need to do is leave a comment here in this
post about anything around us that represents who
you are and what you are becoming.
It’s a metophor for the journey that you are going
Let me give you an example. Here’s my metophor:
I, Scott Tousignant, am like a TREE!
I began as a seed that required nurishment to
break free from my shell. Even still I had to
battle the earth to push through to the surface.
There were thousands upon thousands of other seeds
all around me. Some of them didn’t sprout out of
Most of them, scratch that. Almost all of them
felt that the journey to the surface was too
dificult and they gave up.
Surprisingly nearly all of them were just barely
under the surface when they gave up. They just had
to make one last giant push to break free.
This took persistance and those seeds that never
gave up were rewarded by seeing day light for the
first time and had now become a tiny tree.
Even after all that hard work some trees just
couldn’t take the challenging winds and dry seasons.
Part of their problem was that they didn’t build
a strong enough root system which is a solid foundation.
Myself, I found that the challenges of the high
winds only made me stronger. The more resistance
that I encountered the more I grew.
The times when I was fed the best nutrients, I
grew faster than I ever imagined. The times when
I was deprived of these nutrients there was almost
no growth at all and I became dormant.
I will continue to grow until my time on this
planet has come to an end. Although there may
be times when it’s less obvious of how much
I’ve grown because it’s just been small amounts
of growth each day.
Over 100 years, those days of small growth add
up and I’ve become magnificent. Something that
people admire and I can be proud of.
… So there you have it. I’m like a tree…
I take the extra step beyond where most people
I accept challenges as an opportunity to grow
When I feed myself nutrient rich foods I grow
much faster. When I deprive myself of nutrient
rich foods I go dormant and don’t grow at all.
I grow and improve a little each day and will
continue to do so for as long as I live.
So what’s your metaphor? What are you like?
Take your time and think about it then come back
here and post it as a comment with your name and
On July 31st I will choose a winner, which I’m
sure will be tough for me to do.
See, it’s simple. But it’s not easy to take the
time to sit back and reflect on what represents
you the best and how you want to live your life.
For some frickin crazy reason people get all
wrapped up in the things in life that don’t
really matter and they neglect these simple things
that can have a huge impact on your life.
The people who own my products are action takers.
They know what’s best for them and they know what
it’s going to take to achieve the body of their
I love giving away my products, but I don’t just
want to give it away to someone that’s not going
to take action on what I teach.
That’s why I’m making you earn it. Prove to me
that you can take action and are willing to do
what it takes to get closer to your dream body.
Leave a comment here in this post and on July 31st
I will announce the winner.
There’s a lot of power in metaphors. Take your time
and choose yours wisely. It will serve you well through
the toughest of times.
Have a totally amazing day and continue living the
YOUR DREAM BODY AWAITS YOU…
