What Have You Been Playing At?

As I write this it’s the 6th June.

You’re 157 days into 2015.

If you’ve put into practice the tips, advice and information I’ve given you over the last 156 days you should:

Than you were at the start of this year.

If you don’t my question to you is…Why not?

What’ve you been playing at?

Way I see it, if you’re not getting the benefits I mentioned, there are only 4 reasons:

1. You still don’t know what to do

Frankly I find this hard to believe.

If you’ve got access to the Internet you’ve got access to more information on how to stack the odds of a happier, healthier and longer life in your favour than you can wave a gnarly stick at.

In fact you probably know more about this stuff than I did back when I started out on the ZEN+ project.

There I was… 40, armed with a bloated belly, a desire to change, a PDF of Convict Conditioning and a desire to get into the best shape of my life.

But this was virgin territory for me.

I had no idea what I was doing.

I’d spent the last 11 years thinking Qigong was the answer to everything.

So what I did was roll my sleeves up, show up on a daily basis, worked hard and kept updating my plan based on the results I was getting.

4 years later, I’m getting close to having it all dialled in.

I didn’t wait until I knew everything before getting started. I simply drew a line in the sand and got started where I was, with what I’d got.

You can do the same right now.


2. You’re feeling overwhelmed

: There’s too much choice today.

So much choice might seem like a good thing but it quickly leads to overwhelm and indecision. I remember a study [1] that claimed “too much choice can produce a paralysing uncertainty, depression and selfishness.”

So if you’re feeling stuck here’s what to do:

  1. Decide one thing you want to achieve
  2. Choose one method you think will help
  3. Commit to it for 3 months, forsaking all others
  4. Check your results
  5. If you’re happy with them, continue. If not go back to step 2. Or if you want to work on something completely different go back to step 1.

It’s as simple as that.

Make a choice and commit to it. Which leads nicely onto the 3rd reason you’re not getting results…

3. You’re not committed

I once dropped $8,500 for business coaching.

How committed do you think I was to putting into action the information I got?

You’re right… I was as serious as a heart attack because I’d got too much skin in the game to do anything other than succeed.

I had to get a return on that investment.

So how much cash have you invested in your health?

Because the trouble with free information is you don’t value it. If you’re anything like me it just ends up gathering cyber dust on your hard drive.

I remember reading an article about world famous violinist Joshua Bell who played at the Boston’s Symphony Hall – half decent seats went for $100 a pop and the place was standing room only.

3 Days earlier, as part of an experiment, he played his $3.5 million dollar violin to passers by in the Metro.

In the 45 minutes he played only 7 people stopped to listen to him and he made a total of $32 and change.

One way of looking at this: You value more what you pay for.


What you spend your money on shows what you really value.

Either way…

When you part with your hard earned cash for anything your level of commitment is directly proportional to how much you parted with.

And as a result you’re much more likely to:

Unless of course…

4. You don’t want it bad enough

You just kinda want it.

You just kinda want to be stronger, fitter and healthier, but you don’t really want to put in the effort required to actually get it.

And it will take effort.

But most people don’t want to hear that.

They want to hear a story instead.

A story that tells them they can spend 50, 60 or more years treating their body like crap and then take a pill or buy some information and instantly – overnight – they’re going to undo all of that damage… And live happily ever after for ever.

Listen, if that’s you I can’t help you.

I don’t sell quick fixes, I leave that to the shysters, hustlers and snake oil salesmen that over crowed the internet and the pages of glossy magazines.

I only promote tried and tested ways to live healthier for longer.

And they all require you to do the work.

To paraphrase one of my hero’s David Getoff: Getting and maintaining good health isn’t convenient.

Well this Z+D has taken me nearly 90 minutes to write, a lot longer than I intended.

So I’m going to leave you with this:

If you want a clear step by step guide that will tell you exactly what to do to live a happier, healthier and longer life…The ZEN+ Home Study Course (coming soon) is the answer.

And if you don’t want to wait, the best place to get started right now is with the ZEN+ Book.
