The Crucial Step To Successful Change Most People Miss

Why do you rubber band back into damaging health patterns even when you have the best intentions??

The magic step of "Preparation" is likely the 
missing ingredient in your recipe for healthy change.

You must prepare your mind and spirit.  You must prepare by creating positive pressure with public committments and accountability groups.  And you must prepare by researching the type of program you're getting into.

In this video (shot with poor light at nightfall, please excuse 😉  I talk about the art of preparation and what I believe to be the most powerful tool to overcome any addiction.

Enjoy!  Write me YOUR personal change affirmation and leave it in the comments!

  4. Thanks Dr Steve, I really want to improve my health and wellness and decrease my stress which I have had alot of lately. I have really been enjoying all you Emails . I had a spinal fusion almost 2 years ago due to deg. arthritis and deg. Disc. I know my posture is not good and I also have found out from a Physical therapist my paraformis muscle is very tight casuing N/T down my legs so I have been trying to do stretches which has helped. I am probably 30 lbs over wt which is not helping my back. My new year goal is to lose the weight and become healthier. Thank you for your tapes… They have been beneficial in helping me in reaching my goals. Linda

    • Stick with it, Linda! Glad I could help you on your journey! You can always improve your function! Stay tuned in…there’s lots more to come and new developments on the way in 2010 for the website!
