Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2

Tonight, my wife and I had the pleasure to go watch the sneak preview of ‘Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2‘ at the movie theater.  As always, I'm drawing a lesson or two from every book and movie.  This one was no different.  I got two major lessons  from this movie.

The first lesson:  Find your passion and others will follow you.
Leadership is taking the reins and showing others the way.  Many will be inspired, especially when you've achieved something that they were always aspiring to do.

fatJoe Cross was fat, sick and suffering from various illnesses brought on by his choice of diet.  In fact, he was on medication .  However, he decided he was going to do something about it, and he did.  He took the plunge and went on a green juice diet across America for 60 days.

As a result, he ended up losing more than 80 lbs in those 60 days coming down from 309 lbs.  Joe puts it well when he says ‘What I've learned: the best way to change the world is to change yourself.”  And that he has done as he's inspired many others to change destination and live on purpose once again.  He's found his passion and he's living on purpose.

The second lesson: You need a community around you.
There's nothing more powerful than having a community of people to help support you in your endeavor.  While Joe Cross has lost the weight and managed to keep it off, you'll learn once the movie is released that one of his followers didn't manage to do as well.

However, this is nothing to judge him on when you learn about his choices and how he ended up being isolated from a community.  People crave community.  Frankly, we were made to live in community.  Nobody can do it alone.  When surrounded by a support system it's easier to replace old habits and step into your purpose.  This is because we were made for interaction/feedback!  How am I doing so far?Community-support

Social Media is powerful than you think  While many people can find a support system in their family, the community, the church or even a club, many ended up finding that support online from people who live hundreds and thousands of miles around the world.

Bonus lesson: The slight edge or compound effect will always keep working for or against you.
Every action toward your purpose or procrastination are effecting not only you, but others around you.

In the end, Joe's choice to take the plunge has changed his life destination.  One doctor scanned his arteries and proved to him what his end might have been if he didn't start juicing in the last 6 years.

Wouldn't it be nice for you to find out where you stand with your health?  It is actually possible to reverse many of the degenerative diseases with the right approach, as many of Joe's followers proved.  Can you feel great every day again?  You can.  Let's do it, and let's add life to our lives!

The movie will be available on DVD in November.  Meanwhile you can start a Reboot with Joe!
