Change Your Default Settings and See Real Progress

by | Oct 19, 2021

You know that moment when you want to throw your phone or laptop across the room?

It’s not working the way you want it to.

You’ve got all these weird error messages popping up.

You’re beyond frustrated and smashing it against the wall seems like the obvious choice.

After you realize that banging it against the wall hasn’t fixed it, you do the unthinkable …

You restore the default settings.

The reason your phone or laptop got jacked up in the first place was likely a combination of things …

You probably downloaded some shit that took up a lot of memory.

You probably got some poor advice from a friend about some software you needed.

You probably didn’t take care of it as well as you should have (ya know, like never turning it off).

You probably had some bugs that were completely out of your control.

Does any of this sound familiar?

I don’t know … maybe similar to every time you diet?

You drained your mental energy.

You took poor advice.

You treated your body like shit (ya know, like never turning it off – aka high stress from low calories and lots of exercise with very little recovery).

And you probably had some stuff happen that was completely out of your control.

So, what did you do?

You tried to bang your head against the wall in frustration.

And when that didn’t work …

You restored the default settings.

And therein lies the rub.

Your default settings are what got you into this mess in the first place.

Your default settings are consistently ignored.

Your default settings are driving you to diet in the first place.

I used to witness this exact scenario play out all the time.

People signing up for a 6 week challenge.

Following all of these rules to lose a considerable amount of weight.

But they never learning anything in the process.

Their default settings were never changed.

So, once the challenge was over and they diverted back to their default settings …

They gained all the weight back.

Isn’t that the issue with all diets?

They focus on the extreme. The unsustainable.

How is eating 1000 calories worth of powders and bars going to teach you anything?

How is a laundry list of food rules going to fundamentally change your operating system?

It won’t.

Need proof?

How has that worked out for you so far?

Lasting results comes from changing your default settings.

Maybe it’s time we stop focusing on the advanced settings and start changing our default settings.

Imagine if you defaulted to quality food choices, moving your body, drinking water, self care, balance and flexibility in your decisions, and a growth mindset.

Wouldn’t that be less stressful than constantly searching for the next quick fix to inevitably bang your head against the wall in frustration and land back at square one?

How many times do you need to do that before enough is enough?

That’s a serious question.

Don’t be like me and wait 10 years.

Make that decision right now.

Changing your default settings is how real progress is made.

It’s more sustainable. More effective. And yeah … it’s really boring, too.

Which is why most people don’t do it.

They’re not patient enough and they struggle to delay gratification.

But, it’s the only way, in my opinion.

It also helps to have some help.

When left to your own devices, you will struggle a bit more.

That’s human nature.

We do better with accountability and guidance.

Personally, I know exactly what to do but I still have coaches who hold me accountable because I need it.

I also like being able to offload that mental energy.

I’m already pretty busy so anything that saves me time and relieves stress is a no brainer for me.

Working on your default settings is what we do in the lifestyle integration phase of our 1:1 coaching program.

That’s where we ensure that everything you’re doing is tailored to your lifestyle and is 100% sustainable.

We want you to walk away with total confidence and self reliance that you have your forever plan.

In my opinion, it’s the glue that holds everything else together.

Are YOU ready to change your default settings?

Neurotyping is cool and really fascinating.

Metabolic priming makes things easier and more efficient.

But, the lifestyle integration is the magic that makes it all last.

It’s why our 1:1 clients are able to lose 20-30 lbs. on average during our 6 month program and keep it off for good.

More importantly, it’s why they’re able to be social and enjoy the process while achieving those results and obtain total food freedom.

If you want that for yourself, simply shoot me a message on FB. 

We’ll schedule a quick chat to make sure it’s a good fit on both sides before moving forward.
