We all know how to lose weight. There is no mystery. Eat less. Exercise more. Sounds simple enough, right? What about losing the habits that keep you locked into a mindset that doesn’t work for you anymore? Simple, yes. Easy, not so much. Jillian Michaels’ Unlimited helps one lose the excess baggage that one carries while trying to live a full life, a life that uses one’s God given gifts. Unlimited gives you the tools to accomplish letting go of bad habits, unsuccessful mindsets, and stifling fears. Jillian’s experience with people from all walks of life, her own experiences, combined with her keen insight about human nature has allowed her to decipher what it is that really keeps someone from reaching their true potential. But she makes it simple. Notice I didn’t say “easy.” She gives you assignments to start you on a path of articulating the things that keep you stuck. How many times do we dare ask ourselves why we aren’t doing we want to do when it is so “easy” to blame someone, or find an excuse. Jillian teaches us that we have it within us to make changes now. And then she shows you how to do it. When someone has had success altering the patterns of people’s lives for the better, as Jillian has, we can consider it a gift that this book has come along. We get the benefits of all her years of experience, trials and errors. Why shouldn’t we live life without limits to our happiness? Unlimited can help you on your journey. Pick up a copy. It’s that simple.
