21 Days To The New YOU…….FACT or FICTION

21-day concept was first introduced by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, in a book titled, ‘Psycho-Cybernetics’  

Dr. Maxwel Maltz
Dr. Maxwel Maltz Founder Psycho-Cybernetics and The 21 Days Habit Forming Principle.Dr Maxwell Maltz wrote the bestseller Psycho-Cybernetics. Originally a Plastic Surgeon, Maltz noticed that it took 21 days for amputees to cease feeling phantom sensations in the amputated limb. From further observations he found it took 21 days to create a new habit. Since then the '21 Day Habit Theory' has become an accepted part of personal development self-help programs. Brain circuits take engrams (memory traces), and produce neuroconnections and neuropathways only if they are bombarded for 21 days in a row. This means that our brain does not accept new habit changing data unless it is repeated each day for 21 days (without missing a day).He also noticed that many of his customers retained a poor self image even after having surgery which improved their appearance. This prompted him to work with his clients' self image prior to surgery, and he discovered that he could assist them to acquire an improved self image without surgery, using the same 21-day period to create changes in their mindset, and that surgery then became unnecessary for them. Further review of the book and observations finds Maltz’ 21 day phenomenon particularly enlightening and applicable to so many vital situations in life. In fact the human mind takes almost exactly 21 days to adjust to a major life change, universally whether it's a negative like:loss of a limbLoss of a loved oneChange of employment or residenceOr positive like :entering into a new romantic relationship. The book is also available in a CD audio format at http://www.amazon.com/ Dr. Maltz also a wrote a highly-rated book titled, 'The New Psycho-Cybernetics', which was updated in 2002 available on http://www.amazon.com Psycho Cybernetics

Dan Kennedy, a wildly successful speaker  laid all of his success at the feet of Dr. Maltz’ Psycho-Cybernetics, and now publishes and teaches a system called ‘Zero Resistance Living’, which, he asserts, includes previously unpublished works of Dr. Maltz. Its as if Dr. Maltz himself had put together a step-by-step daily and weekly program to follow outlining exactly what to do each and  every day.

  1. No thinking.
  2. No guess work.
  3. Just follow the instructions and remain on target. 

 You see Dr. Maltz understood the need for such a program, which he created before he died. He called the program Zero Resistance Living but it was never published. Instead of being in people’s hands changing their lives – it was gathering dust until Dan Kennedy brought it out. Zero Resistance Living began with the work of 5 authors who published a book titled, ‘Zero Resistance Selling': Dan S. Kennedy, William T. Brooks, Matt Oechsli, and Jeff Paul and Pamela Yellen, which focused on improving self image in sales people:

The essence of the technique is simply to devote at least 15 minutes a day to the formation of any habit you wish to establish, and do this faithfully for 21 days. By the fourth week, it should actually be harder not to engage in the new behavior than it would be to continue doing it. This applies to any type of habit, whether it is a physical practice or a way of perceiving something, such as self image. In Zero Resistance Living, they talk about changing your self image in “the theater of your mind” for 15 minutes a day, for 21 days. It will also help to establish the habit if the behavior  (for example: exercising) is performed at the same time of day every day. Other senses can be utilized to establish the habit. For example, if you want to establish the habit of meditating, you can reinforce the practice by wearing the same clothing, burning the same incense, occupying the same location, and assuming the same posture. The more senses you can involve in the new habit, the more likely it is to become ingrained in the neural pathways, so, even if you’re working on your self image in a mental construct, it’s helpful to use all the faculties of your imagination to include sights, sounds, smells, and the senses of feeling and taste to strengthen the image which you come to associate with your new self image. In other words, make it seem as real as possible. If you miss a day, just keep going until you’ve been doing the new behavior for 21 days in a row.

 
 Success ofcourse is more solidified upon completion if you commit to a 30-day program instead . And if you’re   really shooting to create a lifelong habit, why even stop at 30 days?Furthermore the human tendency to like ’round numbers’ makes1 month or 30 days somehow more desirable.

So in the arena of health and fitness coaching particularly weight management realize therefore that the only thing between you and the “body of your dreams” in 21 days is

·       Daily fat-furnace meal plans

·       Daily fat-furnace workouts

·       Daily empowerment and inspirations

And quite like Dan Kennedy’s ‘Zero Resistance Living’, we have put together a step-by-step daily and weekly program  to follow outlining these.

·       No thinking.

·       No guess work.

·       Just follow the instructions and remain on target.
