Can transforming your body transform your life, or are physical body changes superficial? I have some strong beliefs about this, especially after seeing thousands of Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle success stories, where the impact was felt far beyond the body fat numbers dropping. I think physical transformation has a positive ripple effect through your entire life – mental, emotional, social, even career/financial. The transformation of one person I believe, can then go beyond the individual and transform others. Today, I only want to introduce this idea as food for thought; I’m going to hold off on writing too much more. Instead, I want your opinion.  If you take a few seconds to answer my survey question below, I’ll enter you in the big drawing for free signed books, free ebooks and free memberships…

Transform your body, transform your life.
I have always had many goals for my work in the fitness field. But this year, after a brief period of struggling with “what now,” I think I have finally gone beyond goals, which have an end point, and uncovered my mission and purpose, which will not end, but will continue on for the rest of my life and career…
My mission is to show people how body transformation and fitness have the potential to carry over and improve every area of your life. Simply put, it can make you happier and help you enjoy ALL of life more.
I believe that transforming your body is not a superficial endeavor.
It is not vain (as some have stereotyped bodybuilders or physique athletes).
It is not non-functional. What could be more “functional” than life enjoyment and happiness – what could be a more ideal ultimate end?
Transforming your body may not automatically change everything else in your life, and surely a mental transformation must take place in sync with the physical changes. But I believe body transformation is not only one potential path to life transformation, it is one of the best paths.
Getting fit serves higher purposes and when you stop looking at the smaller view and take in the bigger life picture, I believe you’ll increase the emotional drive and motivation it takes to make a change, and keep the change.
“Transformation literally means going beyond your form.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer
I am tempted to keep brain dumping everything I’ve been contemplating on this subject onto this page… but for that I am going to wait. I will be writing a “manifesto” about transforming your body and transforming your life before the end of the year, and sharing that with everyone who has eyes to see or ears to listen…
But as I mentioned above, I do not want to reveal all of my thoughts just yet. I’ve already given you the core of the big idea.
For now…
I want to know what YOU think.
I know this will be controversial and opinions will vary because I have already heard the various opinions. And that’s ok. That’s why I’m doing this. I want to hear it all, from every type of person.
There are two types of people who may be reading this:
1. One is a person who has already transformed his or her body and it had profound effects through every area of life – health, self-confidence, self-esteem, relationships, career, finances, happiness and more…. how others treat you, how you perform simple daily tasks, what it’s like when you travel, how you feel on a date, during intimate moments, in a job interview, or at school. The list could go on and on.
2. The second is a person who is about to embark on a fitness journey or is on the path and is a “work in progress,” who knows in his or her heart that the physical change is going to change more than their looks… and they have high hopes for realizing ALL those changes.
This is deeply important for all of us
Whichever group you are in, I want to hear from you. Tell me about your already actualized results… or your future anticipated results.
The responses I’ve gotten to various blog survey and giveaway contests in the past have been priceless, but this one has very deep meaning and implications for you and for me.
By expressing what you are thinking in words, you are going to heighten your emotional involvement and motivation to change or to keep the changes you’ve already made.
And for me – this may be the most important question I have ever asked my readers. This big idea may be the focal point for the rest of my career and the answers to this one post will help me know the right places and ways to start, as I focus on my mission and look for better ways to help spread this message:

Transform your body and you will transform your life.
