What’s stopping you from being fit for success? Health for success means aligning your body-mind-spirit to be your best. It’s not just about surviving, but about thriving.
One of the biggest roadblocks is fear. We’ll focus on what Napoleon Hill described in Think and Grow Rich as the ghostly fear of ill-health.
Hill noted that fear of ill-health related to two other ghostly fears: fears of old age and death. If you dwell on sickness, or just ignore good health practices, sickness becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy as you age. So being old and sick can be scary. And then there are the uncertainties that surround death itself.
The good news is that as you clear you fear of ill-health, the other fears diminish as well.
FOUR KEY FACTORS
Let’s look at four key factors that generate a fear of ill-health:
1) Media messages
“Diet and exercise alone may not be enough,” as the drug ads warns us. In other words, you need drugs because even if you do take care of yourself, it won’t work. In addition to drugs, there are the fast food and processed food industries advertising, which can give you indigestion in more ways than one.
2) Negative self-talk
How do you talk about your body? Are things a “pain in a neck,” something you “can’t stomach,” that will “be the death” of you?
Also, do you compare yourself unfavorably to others’ looks and health? Isn’t it time to stop that? Strive for your personal excellence, not perfection.
3) Bad habits
What about taking care of your diet? Do you deprive your body of exercise and sleep? Drinking, smoking, overeating, gambling, tv and internet compulsion and other addictions are often used to deal with not being fit for success.
4) Self-medicating behavior
And then there is coping with stress by self-medicating behavior: drugs to fall asleep, drugs to wake up (including caffeine), alcohol, nicotine, drugs for stress, headaches, allergies, etc. – all issues that can be dealt with in a more holistic way.
You may know what you need to do but can’t bring yourself to do it, with any consistency.
To have health for success, you know that you need to treat your body like a car, a car that must last a lifetime. To continue this analogy… get a tune up, deal with those warning signals, start tapping on EFT pressure points while saying these affirmations…
Even though my body feels like it’s breaking down, I love and accept myself anyway.
Even though I don’t have the energy I want, I can choose to think positively about myself.
Even though I have bad habits, I can start to make a small change today.
Even though I’m too busy [it’s too hard, I’m confused, overwhelmed], I can start to breathe deeper… stand up straight… stretch more… and relax myself.
Saying these affirmations is a pretty easy thing to do. Try them, or ones of your choosing. You might be surprised at the shifts you experience. Or just start tapping on the pressure points. Do it as a daily fit for success practice.
Then follow through with baby steps, making gradual changes perhaps eating one healthier thing a day, walking or sleeping more, etc.
You have a lot to offer and a lot to gain. Being fit for success is the foundation for living a great life now.

Here’s the final roadblock to fulfilling your full potential. (To see the other roadblocks, view links in Related Posts section below this one.)
4. Lack support.
Successful people all have support systems. The Lone Ranger approach doesn’t work. To fulfill your goals and purpose, you need help. This is not a sign of weakness, but one of strength.
It’s hard and costly to try and re-invent the wheel. Actively get the help you need to succeed.
Solution: Invest in training and coaching and associate regularly with uplifting people who support what you’re doing, including your dreams and aspirations.
The people around should be good listeners, cheering you on and being inspirations for you. Of course, you should be the same for them.
Which of the four roadblocks are holding you back? Successful people decide and act. Just by intending to improve and fulfill your potential, you are moving forward.
Remember the world needs what you have to offer. It’s good for everyone, starting with yourself.

We interviewed success coach Kate Beeders on our blogrtalk radio show on “How to Create a Vision of What You Want with EFT.”

* Your vision’s components include:

Are you ready to learn a powerful, elegant healing tool, one that can strengthen your inner knowing as well?
Like EFT, Spiritual Kinesiology (SK) is an easy-to-use, effective healing tool. We developed it in the 1990’s. SK uses muscle-testing, reframing and anchoring. It can also be used as a complement to EFT as well and other modalities.
In this short video, Phillip demonstrates the reframing and anchoring part of Spiritual Kinesiology. This approach not only delivers powerful results, often quickly and easily. It also helps you develop a stronger connection with your inner guidance.

What are your thoughts or experiences with Spiritual Kinesiology and reframing and anchoring?
You do deserve to be more prosperous.
It’s good to keep telling yourself that. The only problem are the “yes, but’s,” as Gary Craig says. We have automatic defenses in place to stop us from attracting what we want, including money.
We are offering a short, to-the-point, course on the subject. The hands-on course is called “Manifest More Money with EFT” — and it’s surprisingly affordable.
