What does it feel like to strike it rich in the world of health and wellness? Does it mean improved sleep? What about being able to walk longer, enjoy a day out at the lake, or just keep up with the family on a lazy weekend? Health is wealth, no way around it. Striking it rich in health is always on your terms. What would better health mean to you, right now? Hold on to that answer, because this book will help you get to that destination.
So, let’s get to the point: are you getting rich…or finding yourself struggling to keep your head above water? What does your health profit and loss statement really look like at the moment?
If things aren’t as rosy as you would like them to be, you’re not alone. For decades, the health and fitness industry has been promising you riches, but giving you pocket change. You’ve probably run into things like, “Lose 20 pounds in 20 days,” “Guaranteed 6-pack in 6 weeks,” and “Drop three dress sizes in 4 weeks!” These are just some of the sneaky slogans that are siphoning away valuable health dollars, sometimes right before your very eyes!
It changes now.
A Missing Piece, Now Revealed
Mainstream fitness programs have one major flaw: they only address one part of the greater health equation. It’s all physical, with little variation: just move a little more, eat a little less, and you’ll be on your way to a huge health jackpot.
But what about the mind?
The biggest mistake made in the pursuit of better health is not using your mind to the fullest. The human mind has far more to do with weight loss and developing a healthier lifestyle than it may seem at first glance. That’s exactly what this book will help you understand.
When you pick up, The Overweight Mind: The Undeniable Truth Behind Why You're Not Losing Weight, you’ll learn how:
The very people you share your daily life with are keeping you fat (even when they “sound happy for you”)
Your own closely-held beliefs are stretching your belt (and the rest of your wardrobe)
The very thoughts that buzz noisily around your mind are slowly devouring your chances at being thin
The everyday words you say are adding pounds and inches
Habits you don’t even think twice about are affecting your health
The mindset you build – or disassemble – affects your physical health (for better or worse!)
Beyond the Basics
There’s more to it than just moving more. All the crunches in the world can’t move you towards the real gems of better health. Crash diets are only short-term, if they even work at all. Every single chapter in The Overweight Mind is designed to showcase your mind’s true potential and its role in your weight loss.
Above all? No get thin quick schemes. No gimmicks. Health is wealth. Get ready to get rich.
Learn How to Turn Tragedy and Pain into a Catalyst for Growth and Success!
It's been said that pain is a fundamental part of life—a darkness that acts as a contrast to the light.
Most, if not all of us experience pain at some point in our lives, particularly the emotional pain of loss. While it may be true that pain is unavoidable, it doesn't have to lead to meaningless suffering.
Pain can serve a far greater purpose in your life than something to be feared.
Jay Nixon, the bestselling author of The Overweight Mind: The Undeniable Truth Behind Why You're Not Losing Weight is back with a groundbreaking new book, The Purpose of Pain: How to Turn Tragedy into Triumph, Because Life’s Not Supposed to Suck!
The Purpose of Pain is a transformational guide that shows you how to turn pain into a catalyst for change—how you can turn your story of tragedy into a life of triumph. In the book, Nixon chronicles his personal struggle with the pain of losing his father at age five in a devastating head-on car crash – an event that cast a two decade-long shadow over his life.
Using a combination of direct truths and a touch of humor, Nixon walks you step by step through the process he used to overcome the tragedy that had dominated his life, and turn it into a life of triumph and success. The result is a compassionate guide that anyone can use to conquer emotional pain in all of its many forms.
In this book, you’ll learn:
- How honoring your pain helps jumpstart the healing process
- Tools and tactics to avoid tragedy that dictate your future
- How to shift your mindset from victim to warrior
- How to use your pain for purpose instead of sadness
- Why rituals are powerful and how to use them to heal
- Permission to stop feeling guilty about claiming the happiness you deserve
- What the Personal Development Vortex is—and how to avoid it.
- ...and much more!
Most of all, you’ll pinpoint the habits and thinking patterns you’ve been unconsciously using to sabotage your own progress, so you can overcome your pain and turn it into a catalyst for progress.
