The 5 Keys to Unlocking Your Potential

“The best time to start was 10 years ago. The 2nd best time to start is now.”

Here’s how you can start living your dreams – today!

1. Identify & Remove the Bottleneck

Trying to lose weight through exercise is like trying to sing underwater.

If diet is the #1 thing keeping your overweight, you can train till you puke and still be overweight because it’s not addressing the root of the problem.

Lose some weight from training, but gain it all back as soon as life gets busy?

Then diet is STILL limiting your success.

Exercise did NOTHING for me. It barely made a dent in my weight, and I didn’t look any better. But when I improved my diet…

Everything changed.

What had ZERO impact in the past started helping me look and feel better than ever.

Stop trying to sing underwater.

Make it easier to succeed and harder to fail by identifying & removing your #1 bottleneck.

I was never overweight, but...

I had extra belly fat that I could never shake. Now I know that I have the know-how to lose it quite quickly whenever I need to.

2. Start Doing the Right Things

In the 6th grade I had a friend I looked up to. He was smarter than me. He always did the most amazing science fair projects. And everybody liked him.

BUT, he didn’t do his homework – or study for exams.

That same year, I learned that if I just passed the final exams early, I could skip a grade.

One less year of classes.
One less year of projects.
One less year of homework…

So I took a month to cram a year’s worth of knowledge into my head, passed the exams, and joined the 7th graders for the 2nd trimester.

I gained a year of life while he lost two (failing the 6th grade).

I wasn’t smarter.
I didn’t work harder (his science projects were legendary).
I wasn’t better looking or more likable.

None of the ordinary excuses hold up.

The only difference is that I was doing the right things while he was only doing the things he liked…

Read that again. It’s important.

Dieters are NOTORIOUS for working too damn hard on the wrong damn things.

You can pop pills, weight train, do pilates, spin classes, diet boxing, never eat chocolate again, detox, pray, etc…

And STILL not lose weight.

After removing your bottlenecks, the next step is to get busy… doing the right things!

Otherwise, you’re just working hard to go nowhere fast.

I continued losing weight...

I am now down to 214lbs and wearing 34 size jeans (down from 42 in the beginning). I definitely feel more energetic.

I must say that I am truly grateful to you that you jumpstarted me on this path 2 years ago.

3. Stop Overcomplicating Things

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

We all have a tendency to overcomplicate things. Even if you’re successful, you can be MORE successful if you start simplifying what already works.

You’re so used to friction that, when you remove a bottleneck and start focusing on something new, you overcomplicate things to feel “normal.”

After discovering my bottleneck, it only took 1 year to lose 80lbs.

That was the easy part.

I spent the next 10 years refining HOW I keep the weight off. I was doing all kinds of things to stay lean that didn’t matter. They wasted time, money & effort. I spent most of my time majoring in the minors – stressing out about the unimportant.

Today, success is easy & automatic. I RARELY rely on willpower. I exert 1% of the effort it used to take to stay lean.

Despite doing less and less, I keep looking better and better.

Resist the pull to overcomplicate things.

The biggest surprise for me...

Has been that I can still eat until I am full everyday while still losing weight.

4. Get Help

You can stumble along wasting time and effort trying to figure everything out on your own — or —  you can get better results, faster, by hiring a coach.

I’m a coach AND a student. I hire coaches to help me.


Because your friends and family are too busy being “nice” to be honest and helpful.

A good coach brings a fresh set of eyes, experiences and expertise to your problems. They don’t just see your blind spots. They tell AND help you fix them.

Nick is a joy to work with...

Because of his eagerness to excel in whatever he does and to enhance any group he is a part of.
