Studies have found that focusing on improving one area of your life with a proven system leads to amazing results faster than you would imagine possible.
Have you ever noticed how some people have a seemingly endless supply of motivation while other people struggle to take action?
Well, there's a perfectly reasonable explanation.
Welcome to the Innercise on motivation! Here's where we use proven psychology and the latest advancements in neuroscience to help motivate you to put your ideas into action and, with practice, keep the motivation part of your brain alive and active.
Tens years ago, I was about 60 pounds overweight. I was feeling pretty lousy, as you can probably imagine . . . so I decided that I was going to lose the excess weight once and for all.
I lost 10, then 15, then 20 pounds . . . But unfortunately, I gained it back. I wasn't willing to give up, so I tried again. The problem was, I'd lose it, then gain it back, lose it, gain it back.
Do you know what I'm talking about? Has this ever happened to you?
It's the yo-yo diet syndrome. I just couldn't get lean and fit. And I wasn't getting any healthier in my attempt.
I needed some serious help so I hired Ari Witten, one of the leading exercise and nutritionist energy experts in the world, to help me understand what was I doing wrong.Read More >
Close your eyes and picture your ideal future self . . . what do you see?
Are you in shape? At your optimal weight?
Do you see a bigger body with less energy?
Or do you see yourself as you are now?
The answer to these questions is important for determining how successful you will be in achieving your weight-loss goals.
Why? Because if you can’t visualize yourself as fit, you cannot expect to be fit.
But this Innercise is about more than creative visualization . . .
Research shows that over 95 percent of people who go on a diet, especially when their only strategy for losing weight is the diet, end up regaining the weight.
In this video, I talk with leading nutrition and fat loss expert, Ari Whitten, to discuss the best way to go about losing the fat and keeping it off.
Before I joined NeuroGym, I was working in a job that was full of drama. I felt completely burned out and unhappy, but I was afraid to leave.
I was afraid that I couldn’t make the giant leap—out on my own—to start doing what I love to do. It was a horrible feeling. I felt so trapped but knew I wanted more.
It felt like a thousand pounds on my chest that I didn’t know how to remove.
I was drowning in debt and my financial future did not look like it was going to change any time soon. To top it off, I had recently found out that my finance had been cheating the entire length of our 8 year relationship.
My heart was broken and my spirit felt at an all time low.Read More >

External forces of motivation can only take us so far. If you want to sustain a motivated mindset for growth, there must be a deep-down desire to take action on a daily basis.
Have you heard the story about the inquisitive visitor to NASA (in the 1960s) who asked the janitor—who was mopping the floor—what he was doing with his life?
The janitor stopped mopping for a moment and replied: “Helping to put a man on the moon.”Read More >
What’s your biggest fear? Heights? Snakes? Airplanes? Snakes on planes?
Most of us can think of a couple things that send shivers down the spine. But have you ever stopped to wonder where the fear came from initially?
Have you ever missed out on an opportunity because you were afraid?
Fear is an insidious obstacle. Sure, it used to keep us alive back in the days of dwelling in caves when large, predatory animals wanted to eat us for dinner.
There's no doubt about it, having a heightened awareness, stress hormones, and a clear focus saved many of our ancestors' lives.
But nowadays, there aren’t as many real threats to our immediate survival. Inside your brain, however, you have the same fear circuit that your cave-drawing ancestor had.
So instead of freaking out upon spotting a saber-toothed tiger, your body responds to more modern terrors (i.e., fear of public speaking, fear of failure, fear of rejection).
The trigger is different, but the response is the same. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between something that's real or something that's in your imagination.
