Transformation On Demand

How do you transform?

How do you make such a dramatic change in your life that the new you is clearly different than the old you?

How long does it take?

Is it even possible?

Some people have to hit bottom before they change. Some never do. Others do it spontaneously. Still others do it intentionally.

I’m interested in the last group; those wonderful souls who choose to transform. If you’ve been wanting to make a change in your life, this subject might interest you, too. So let’s explore it.

Three weeks ago today I completed the Bill Phillips Transformation weekend. It’s a three day kick start on a twelve week program to transform your life, focusing on your health. I love the program, have already had dramatic results,  and see principles in it that you can use to transform your life in any area.

Let’s talk about it…

Bill Phillips and wife Maria

Bill Phillips and wife Maria

I’ve been a fan of Bill Phillips since he started the famous Body For Life fitness contests back in 1996. I entered and completed five of them in a row back in 2004 and 2005. It took discipline and commitment and I gave it my all.

I lost 80 pounds, received five certificates of completion, and won an honorable mention for my success. I’m still proud of those five certificates of achievement. I’ve showed them off to everyone who visits my gym, including actor/bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno.

When I met Bill Phillips the first time years ago,  I told him how he influenced my life. He flattered me by saying he had studied my marketing materials and that I had influenced him, too. It was an unforgettable moment for me.

But that was almost ten years ago. Bill Phillips moved on. I grew older. I lost touch with him and his wisdom. As I approached the age of 60, and felt my body age and my waist line grow, I wanted his help again.

I had tried low cal, no cal, low carb, no carb, high protein, veggie, juice, HCG, cabbage, low Glycemic, blood type, kitten food (kidding) and other diets. They all work in the short term.

But as Bill Phillips says, dieting is like holding your breath. When you come up for air, you’ll devour everything in sight.

Been there.

Not good.

Or healthy.

I knew you had to change the inside before your outside would change. After all, that’s the core of my message these days. For that reason, I’ve gone through a long list of self help processes, including personal work with the amazing Morty Lefkoe.

And now I wanted and was ready for the complete package. I wanted the dramatic and long term results I had gotten on the Body for Life program, only with any updates in transformation since those days long ago.

So I did the only logical thing: I Googled Bill Phillips.

Turns out Bill is doing great, looking great, and still inspiring others through something he calls Transformation Camp and the Transformation Challenge. It didn’t take me long to decide to register for his three day weekend and be trained personally by him.

Bill trained Clint Eastwood, Sly Stalone, Whoopie Goldberg, the Denver Broncos and other celebrities and athletes. Having the chance to train with him personally would be worth whatever the investment. I’ve met movie stars and super stars and worked out with their celebrity fitness trainers, but I was more excited about being with Bill than anyone else.

And I wasn’t disappointed.

Bill is warm, wise, relaxed, supportive, inspiring. He loves scientific research and quotes it as easily as others quote sports scores or jokes. He’s also a great storyteller, and openly shares his personal struggles.

For example, Bill had a near death experience when he almost drowned in Hawaii. It shattered his world view. It triggered a quest for him to study esoteric literature and ancient spirituality. He traveled around the world, visited healers and mystics, and probed for the secrets of the universe.

He also fell down the stairs in his home and broke both his legs. That experience caused him to put all his life research and life experience – everything from fitness and spirituality to psychology and metaphysics – into an entirely new program. It’s what he today calls Transformation.

Bill’s insights are mind opening:

  • He said focus on process, not perfection.
  • He said he doesn’t care to avoid death, that he instead wants us to live long enough to complete our life mission.
  • He said he’s seen dramatic transformation right after people take total self responsibility.
  • He said he’s seen 225% better results in achieving goals when people have group support.
  • He said lives transform after people experience forgiveness and let go of resentment.

Of course, Bill’s seen these transformations firsthand and been the catalyst for a staggering amount of them. Not a few hundred, but a few hundred thousand.

His earlier book, Body For Life, influenced a million people. His later book, Eating For Life, is still a bestseller. His latest book, Transformation, is picking up where his earlier work left off.

I’m used to Bill’s evidence based approach to proving his methods. I still recall flipping through the pages of his popular magazine from a decade ago, Muscle Media. It was packed with pages and pages of before and after photos of people who had dramatically transformed their bodies and their lives, in only twelve weeks. Bill’s gym in Denver, Colorado also has before/after pictures.

The evidence that change is possible is overwhelming.

Today Bill focuses on a more all encompassing transformation. Health and fitness are still a focus, but not the only ones. He’s less concerned about muscle building and more focused on inner life building. His whole being approach to transformation is about taking control of your entire life, not just what you see in the mirror.

And today Bill is offering it on a smaller scale. Once a month he personally trains, inspires, and guides thirty people in his Transformation Center in Denver. Every weekend camp sells out in advance. Besides the three day intensive, Bill’s team offers ongoing support by email and on Facebook for another twelve weeks.

It’s clear to me that Bill is on a life mission. He doesn’t appear to care about financial reward. He cares about you. And me. He’s donated over two million dollars to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This is a man who cares about people.

And that’s why I joined his Transformation Camp three weeks ago. I’m going to respect the privacy of the thirty people in the weekend with me and Bill. I’m not going to describe our experiences. They were personal, and my group is now a support team. I love them.

Let’s just say that when I walked in the door for the first day of Transformation, and was met with Bill’s sister making me pancakes, I knew I was in the right place. (They were protein pancakes, tasted delicious, and the recipe is in the book, Eating For Life.)

But let’s go back to the questions I asked about how people change. Since the other questions were answered in this post, let’s just look at the key one: How can you transform?

There are five key steps to transformation:

  1. A decision. You “demand” transformation by choosing it. Your conscious intent to go in a new direction redirects your life flow and aims you where you want to go. It all begins here.
  2. A plan. You control circumstances when you are prepared for them. Having information on what to do, how and when, will guide you down the path to transformation.
  3. A vision. A clear picture of the end result you want will help you attract it into your life. A great way to accelerate that transformation is to step into the end vision and live from it right now, today.
  4. A why. The more reasons you have for wanting transformation, the better and faster will be the results.
  5. A support team. When someone believes in you, odds are you will boost your own opinion of yourself. When you are in a group of people who want your transformation as much if not more than you do, you will go in the direction of speedy transformation.

Finally, let’s hear from Bill Phillips —

“No matter who you are, no matter what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to change, and no one can take that away.”

The path is clear for you or anyone to begin their own transformation.

It all begins with step one — a decision.

What’s yours?

Which Are You Choosing?

Let’s start off 2013 with a lesson….

As you probably know, you are either living your life from Faith or you are living it from Fear.

Most people live in fear. It’s not very helpful and not much fun. It creates an “attractor field” that pulls to you more to be in fear about.

Forget that. You did that last year.

I want you to go into 2013 with FAITH.

Faith in yourself, faith in your dreams, faith in other people, faith in your future…

Here’s how you can do that —

Of course, you’ll have to wait for the book to arrive sometime in late February.

So what do you do till then?

What can you do today?

Here’s what I suggest:

In every moment, ask yourself if you are feeling fear or you are feeling faith.

Actually, what are you feeling right now?

Fear or Faith?

Fear is belief in the negative.

Faith is belief in the positive.

Both are simply beliefs, yet beliefs are what create your reality. They’re the software operating your life.

Take a breath and choose faith.

Living in fear is limiting and exhausting.

Living in faith is liberating and energizing.

Which do you want?

My new book will explain how to have faith in yourself, faith in other people, faith in a higher power, and more.

You always have a choice.

What’s yours?

Ao Akua,

Now What?

Well, December 21st came and went overseas and yet we’re still here.

Now what?

I hope surviving the “end of the world” taught you not to listen to the paranoia of the media and the masses.

Life is to be lived, not feared.

That said, I think it’s time you took a stand for your life and did something big and bold.

Mark Twain's Secret Book

In 1891 members of The Authors Club of New York came up with a terrific idea to raise funds for a permanent home for their meetings. I love their idea and want to share it with you. You could adapt it for many uses today. Plus there’s a lesson in prosperity here for you.

Let me explain…

The Authors Club of New York formed in 1882. Among its members were Mark Twain, Teddy Roosevelt, Andrew Carnegie, William Dean Howells, Henry Van Dyke, Frank Stockton, and more than a hundred others. They met socially to entertain each other and support younger, not yet successful writers.

In 1891 they conceived the idea of publishing a limited edition, one of a kind book. Over one hundred members would each write an original article, poem or story.

They would all be compiled into a hand bound leather book. Each author would sign their contribution in each book. They also agreed that all contributions would be exclusive, and never appear elsewhere, making the book very collectible.

To make it even more valuable, there would only be 251 copies of the book. No one would get paid, including the printer. Everyone donated their expertise for the larger cause.

Rare book signed by Twain etc

That’s exactly what they did, too. They titled the collection “Liber Scriptorum” (Latin for “book of writings”). Printer Theodore Low De Vinne bound 221 copies of the book (unbound but signed contributions were sold separately) in morocco-gilt leather and offered them for $100 each, about $2,500 each in today’s dollars.

As you might guess, copies of this rare book are scarce today. Still, I located two of them. One was unbound and selling for $25,000. The other was bound, numbered 147, in perfect condition, all contributions signed by their authors, and selling for a lower five figure price.

Truly limited edition

Truly limited edition

I wanted it.

I’m a fan of Mark Twain. And Teddy Roosevelt. And Andrew Carnegie. I’m an author. Ive been in writers’ groups. I’ve published books where others contributed articles. I felt this book calling me.

But five figures for a book?

Each author signed their article in the book

Each author signed their article in the book

This was pushing the limits of my wealth set point.

The most expensive book I own is a triple signed first edition of A Magician Among the Spirits by Harry Houdini. It stretched my money mindset to get it at the time. But I did. And I’m glad I did. I love that book.

But five figures for a book?

I cleaned and prayed and meditated on the Liber Scriptorum book for a week. It wouldn’t get out of my mind.

I asked the seller to send me more photos. He did. It made me want the book even more.

But I still didn’t buy it.

Then I received a check for the exact amount of the book. That’s usually my sign to make the purchase. After all, there’s the money for it.

But I still didn’t buy it.

My mind kept delivering limiting beliefs to me. Every time it did, I erased them.

But I still didn’t buy the book.

I went on a radio show and talked about my bestselling free e-book, Attract Money Now. After it, I remembered a key step from the book, called prosperous purchasing. In short, if you have the money, and you have the desire, buy it. Else you’re reinforcing lack and limitation.

But I still didn’t buy it!

I had to let yet another day go by.

Then I remembered Dr. Hew Len, my coauthor for the book Zero Limits, saying if you clean for three days and the desire is still there, then go for it.

So I did.

I now own that amazing book.

And I love it.

Lesson: Even prosperity authors have growth work to do.

Question: What are you resisting investing in right now, but only because of fear?

What would you do if you weren’t afraid?

Ao Akua,


PS — Also keep in mind that what Mark Twain and the others did in 1891, you can do today. It’s the secret behind numerous books, including my own The E-Code, and of course the legendary “Chicken Soup” series of books. You gather contributions from authors and collect them into “your” own book. Think about it.
