Fitness Influences vs. Root Causes

Root cause vs influences. Which one are you going to bet your time and effort on?

When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, there are root causes and then there are influences.

Root causes give you everything you want and less of what you don’t. They bring you greater results a lot faster and with minimal effort.

They also bring you results regardless of anything else in your life. As long as the root cause is covered you’ll have success, no ifs ands or buts.

Influences, on the other hand, can cost you needless time, money and effort. They are also a complete crap shoot towards helping you achieve your goals.

The biggest reason for the struggle within our fitness culture is because there is too much confusion over what are root causes and what are nearly influences.

Listen in here and learn why getting the two confused can cost you everything you want from fitness while also draining your time, money and other resources.

    Hey Matt! Just like when you mentioned (in an old podcast) that people intentionally sabotaged their progress in the ‘Biggest Loser’ challenge you were involved in, the only thing stopping people applying your 3-Steps (once they learn about them) is themselves. Those that want to change can/will change (to some degree) using them whilst the rest will find a reason not to start/continue with their choices. Great revision/update to the Root/Surface topic. Good to know we are all learning this F.I thing together :-)
