You may have heard of the ‘Be, Do, Have’ paradigm already. I didn’t coin it, although I wish I did, that credit seems to belong with one Zig Ziglar who said:

“You’ve got to be before you can do, and do before you can have.” – Zig Ziglar

If this doesn’t resonate with you, then I’ll put it another way for you. Don’t be a ‘When’ ‘Then’ person, you know, the ‘when I get more money, then I will concentrate on my diet, fitness and health’…

I get it, we are waiting for the ‘perfect’ time to get started, heck, many will take a ‘pretty good’ time to press on with pursuing their goals and life’s mission…but as I’ve said before, if you wait for the perfect time, that time will probably never arrive.


The principle here is that you have to start changing your identity, it’s simple, answer me this question…

Q: Did you buy cigarettes today?

A: No

Q: Why Not?

A: Because I don’t smoke (whispers idiot under breath)

Now whether you answered Yes or No to the above, the principle is the same…if you buy cigarettes it’s because you IDENTIFY as a smoker, if you don’t buy cigarettes it’s because you DON’T identify as a smoker. Make sense?

Now I speak hypothetically here because right now we may not be working together on this (that’s what MANtra Diet Reset is for), but in order to change your self-identity from a person who is unhealthy and eats poor quality food and drink and doesn’t exercise, to a person who is healthy and eats fresh, nourishing food and exercises regularly, you have to start doing it FIRST.

Do the things you want to do, persevere, absorb the feeling of accomplishment (if only for an hour or a day to begin with) and soon enough you will start to identify as this person and the change will stick.

You cannot ‘Have, Do, and then Be’…it simply doesn’t work like that. Ever notice how lottery winners take home thousands and millions of pounds only to end up with no money? They didn’t identify as a wealthy person, not truly, and sure enough the money and lifestyle dwindled.

‘Be a healthy person, Do healthy things (eat better, exercise more, relax more) and in time you will Have the ultimate gift that is health.

Need help getting on the right path for this journey? My MANtra Diet Reset will take you from total dietary reset through to total dietary realignment to suit YOUR goal. Make it happen guys. Don’t be that When/Then man!
