If you’re not satisfied with your position in life or expect more from yourself, your career or your relationships then you clearly have to make some sort of change. Doing the same things that you’ve done up until now will only get you what you already have. If what you have isn’t enough then you must demand more of yourself and everything around you. So how do you start?
The first step to a really changing your life is changing your body. The leading man always looks like a leading man. And believe it or not everyone around you will treat you differently simply based on how you look and present yourself.
Imagine that you were going for an interview for a new position that you really want. Now imagine that it comes down to you and one other guy who is equally qualified, but that other guy is in significantly better shape than you and he just looks like more of a leading man than you do. Which person do you think will get the job?
In most cases the guy who looks the part will get the benefit of the doubt, which means he’s going to get the job, the girl, the money and whatever else he wants. This is partly because he believes he deserves it, and partly because other people also believe he deserves it. It might not sound fair, but this is the way the world works. This is called the ‘halo effect’.
Whenever you’re ready to accept this you can start using this to your advantage and start getting more of what you want in any area of your life.
The first step is taking care of your body. Sure clothes and presentation is important. But the nicest suit on earth wrapped around a sloppy out of shape body doesn’t hide the fact that you can’t take care of yourself.
Getting in shape is the single most important and powerful thing you can do to start affecting real and lasting changes in your career and your relationships because it causes both an intrinsic and extrinsic change.
As you build a better body you will gain more confidence and exude this confidence (whether you know it or not). This will have an effect on everyone that interacts with you. They will start giving you the benefit of the doubt because of what they are seeing.
People judge each other within the first 2 second that they lay eyes on you, so you better be something to look at in those first 2 seconds.
In that time they will make a decision about your ability to take care of yourself, how much confidence and respect you seem to have, how intelligent they think you are, and whether or not they even want to interact with you.
All of this happens in a couple seconds, and this happens way before you ever have a chance to say a word. It’s your job to make your first physical impression a good one. And that is done by building a perfectly proportioned body.
This is no mystery and you and I both know the look of the leading man. It’s not too big, and not too thin, it is in fact the proverbial ‘just right’ size. Believe it or not there is actually scientific evidence for the ideal muscular size of a man’s body and I’ve put it all together into a system I call the Adonis Index Workout.
The end result is the Adonis Effect.
