  • 5 Ways to Get Over The Wall

What is the Wall

What is the wall?

  • Divides rooms
  • Provides privacy by blocking a view or keeping people out
  • In this case, a barrier (2014) which is an obstacle, imagined or real, that keeps people or things apart, prevents communication, or slows progress.

The wall to me is the third definition. I had this habit of sabotaging myself especially when it came to my weight. I'd come up to the finish line and pull a hamstring, trip over my shoelaces, or just plain stop.

My Wall Was My Weight

I got so stuck on the how-to that I forgot to get to basics, the want-to. I had to ask better questions. How can I turn this around? What can I do to get over this wall?

I have been a yo-yo dieter. I have struggled with my weight since I was young. I was diagnosed with Morbid Obesity at 380 pounds. The last time I weighed 200 lbs I was 13. My wall was 340 pound mark.

Since I started using my coffee and taking the Organo Gold Capsules, part of my 30 day mental fast, I have shed over 50 pounds. I found I no longer crave breads or desserts. I no longer have a taste for beer which is weird because I used to brew it. Now I'm weighing in at 328.8 as of this post.

5 Ways to Get Over The Wall

These are 5 ways I took to get over the wall

  1. Consume Healthy Products: Take Organo Gold Capsules and Drink the Coffee. There is a mind-body connection.
  2. Ask Better Questions: I just started asking "how do I" or "how can I".
  3. Take Action: Schwartz (1987) suggested to overcome obstacles you must take action.
  4. Baby Steps: Kiyosaki (2000) suggested that you take baby steps.
  5. Picture It: Picture in your mind overcoming the obstacle.

The Wall

What is the wall?

  • In a house it divides rooms.
  • In your yard it could provide privacy by blocking a view or keeping people out.
  • In this case, it's a barrier (2014) an obstacle, imagined or real, that keeps people or things apart, prevents communication, or slows progress.

The wall to me is the third definition. I had this habit of sabotaging myself. I'd come up to the finish line and pull a hamstring, trip over my shoelaces, or just plain stop.

I got so stuck on the how-to that I forgot to get to basics, the want-to. I had to ask better questions. How can I turn this around? What can I do to get over this wall?

Getting Over The Wall

These are some of the steps I took to get over the wall

  • Ask Better Questions: I had to ask better questions to myself like "How can I turn this around?" or "How do I improve this or that?"
  • Take Action: Schwartz (1987) suggested to overcome obstacles you must take action
  • Baby Steps: Kiyosaki (2000) suggested that you take baby steps
  • Picture It: Picture in your mind overcoming the obstacle

No TV or Newspapers

No newspapers or TV.

Read 15 Minutes a Day of a Good Book

I'm reading The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.

Personal Development Audio

This Morning I listened to Robert T. Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!

Drink water & take Organo Gold Capsules

I start the day with Grapeseed Extract and Mycelium great for arthritis and mental clarity. Midday, I take the Ganoderma capsules for overall health and body detox. Just before bed I take the Spore Powder. All I know is I get a better quality of sleep. Looking forward to Wednesday weigh in.

Exercise

I walked for 45 minutes. WootSauce!!!!

Reflection Time

Just went deep and pictured all those things I want. I think it's about time to do some guided meditations.
