Why ‘What’s Your Excuse?’ Isn’t That Helpful

what's your excuse?I’m sure you’ve read it over and over again. You’ve seen the before/after pictures of people who’ve lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks.

  • The most powerful concept I know to help change your behavior (it all has to do with how you actually perceive yourself).
  • A simple, but powerful, 5-step habit creation framework you can implement immediately.
