Embracing Change

January 31st, 2012 by nealon

“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you always got.” – Mark Twain

If we want to make changes in our lives, if we want to see new results that we’ve never seen before one thing is for sure. We have to step out of our box and switch some things up a bit. The number one reason people end up failing in reaching their weight goals, or for that matter, any other major goals or aspirations they have in life is simple… (more…)

THE POWER OF small

Here’s a quick and easy tip to help keep you on track today (more…)

It ain’t about how hard you hit…It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. – Rocky Balboa

I’ll never forget the day that I made the decision to pick myself up and try again…the day that started my transformation and brought me to where I am today. But, there is something else I’ll never forget either; the hundreds of times that I have failed at the same endeavor.

Failure, I have come to understand, is just a part of the learning process.  We all fail from time to time.  This is how we learn. Children fail at walking, until they get it. We fail at math, until we get it. We fail at driving a car sometimes, until we get it. We fail at dating, until we get it (hopefully). I failed at getting healthy, until I got it and learned the art of weight release. It matters not how many times you fail, but how many times you get back up and try again.

Get up…try again. You can do it!

It ain’t over till you stop breathing.

Be great today!

My Top Three Weight Release Tips

January 13th, 2012 by nealon

So when I was interviewed by FOX news there were many things I told them that did not make the clip. So I figured I’d circle back around and just reiterate what my top three things to keep in mind when trying to lower your weight and keep it that way….here goes.

1. Start drinking water. This will eliminate a good portion of your hunger, start pushing unhealthy beverages out of your diet, give you more energy if you’re dehydrated and make your entire body function better giving you a far better chance of recovery. Try 8 cups/day to start.

2. Get plenty of sleep. So many of us walk around sleep deprived. It is next to impossible to release weight long term if you’re not giving your body the down time it needs. Try 7-9 hours a day. Four…just won’t cut it.

3. Add don’t take away. Add healthy things, don’t worry about taking away the unhealthy when you start. Doing so can lead to deprivation which is what most diets really are and eventually your body will reject the radical change.

There’s more…much more, but I would say those three are some of my top picks.

The EASY Way to Make Money (or lose weight)

December 2nd, 2010 by nealon

Ok, I’ll make this quick because it’s simple and effective and shouldn’t take a lot of explaining.

I heard a brilliant quote today:

“You make money from turning the wheel, not reinventing it.”Bill Harrison

What does this mean?  Find a plan that has been proven to work and work the plan.

You can apply this to money or letting go of weight.  No need to bang your head against the wall and drive yourself crazy…find something that someone has actually done and it was effective to maintain the result.

I have been down the path, tried hundreds of different diet programs, health regimens, weight loss books, you name it.  I have boiled all of the fat off and came up with six universal and simple truths that show what actually works.

I’ve let go of over 100lbs and I’ll show you how to do the same.

You can sign up for our next Tele-workshop where you can learn these simple techniques from the comfort of your own home.

Be well and I hope to hear from you soon,

Is Weight Loss Mind over Matter

December 1st, 2010 by nealon

Couldn't resist Pink Floyd cover art here.

It has been said for many years that your mind has control over your body.  Mind over matter thinking has been applied to  weight loss, financial prosperity, anything that people have struggled with and overcome.

So if that is all there is to it, why don’t we all just master this one and be done with it?

Simple, there’s a missing link here. That would be your heart, your inner wisdom, the spiritual component that can guide you through things that your mind just can’t master 100% of the time.  This wisdom can be captured through meditation or the simple act of quieting your mind and listening to your heart.

So, does that mean our mind doesn’t matter?  Of course not, we need that thing to be working too or we’d forget everything.  What is the new, better paradigm?

Heart over Mind over Matter

Now you got the juice to make it happen.  That’s what I did when I finally realized I couldn’t think my way through my health problems. I had to feel my way through and listen carefully to my heart for direction.

What is your heart trying to tell you?  

Be well,

P.s. And one more thing…you’ll have a much easier time with weight release than weight loss.  Stay tuned for more on that.

Time for a Break?

August 25th, 2010 by nealon

Once upon a time there was a small quaint town nestled in the forest that relied heavily upon wood for cooking and warming their homes.  Wood chopping was a very honorable trade and there was one young man by the name of  Big Henry who was convinced that he could chop more wood than anyone in town.  In fact he was so certain that he challenged anyone in town to a contest.  If they could beat him, he’d chop their wood for one full year.  Most folks knew of Henry’s strength and skill and nobody dared challenge the young man.

Now old man Smitty was old, 79 in fact, but he could still swing an axe and the idea of having someone else chop his wood for a year, well that was just too alluring so he agreed to take up Henry on his offer. Henry laughed at first and asked the crowd for a more suitable component. The town’s people tried to talk Smitty out of it but he had already made up his mind.  They knew he wouldn’t change it so the towns people prepared the wood and set up the event and right on time on the day of the contest, Smitty came walking up with a smile on his face an axe over his back and a old metal thermos in his free hand which was clutching an old fishing pole.

After each chord was cut, they were taken off and stacked in two different wood sheds so that nobody could see how much each had chopped.  At first it seemed to be a pretty fair contest but then Henry started to pull ahead and it was at that moment that Smitty left and went back home.  He retired in his house for a good bit and came back out and started off again.  This went on for hours and every couple hours Smitty would retire and come back.

Henry was so convinced he had this in the bag but just to make sure he started chopping quicker and harder as the day went on. He wanted to beat old Smitty as hard as he could. They chopped on into the night….

The next morning folks rose early and came back out to see how the two were holding up.  They only had a couple minutes to go.  Henry looked dog tired but was clearly ever so confident.  Old Smitty was sipping on a cup of coffee and sitting on a log when he stood up and chopped a couple more logs until the mayor blew the whistle and called time.  They went and checked the piles and it turned out Smitty had beaten Henry by 3 chords.

Confused and upset Henry exclaimed, “But you must have stopped and left 20 times.  I’m pretty sure you even slept for a bit last night.  I worked hard all through the night.  How did you possibly beat me? What were you doing when you went back home.”

Smitty turned around and grabbed his thermos and his fishing pole and as he headed for the creek he muttered, “Oh, I just took a rest, had a bite and sharpened my axe.”

Are you taking enough time to rest, eat well and sharpen your axe.

More effort does not always equal better results whether we’re talking about your health, relationships, money, you name it.

Take a break.

Nobody ever said Smitty wasn't crazy, just that he could swing an axe.

All my best,

Too Much Work Part 2

August 17th, 2010 by nealon

Sometimes a friend can help you have fun...get creative.

continued from Part 1

Ok, so we know that sometimes things are easy and staying on track and accomplishing our goals and eating right and doing the right things just seems to happen naturally, with what seems like effortless ease, right?  So how do we get in that zone where dieting and everything else we struggle with come to us naturally.

Ok, here it is.  The whole trick is to get yourself to feeling better.  This may take different actions depending on where you are at emotionally at the time, but the better and better you can get yourself to feel, you will eventually find yourself in a place where you are feeling wonderful and then you are in the zone.  Then you are connected with your true nature, which is one of good health and happiness.

How do we get to feeling better?  That is a very individual thing but it may be as simple as going for a walk or reading a book or watching a favorite movie or calling up a good friend that always knows the right thing to say to you.  If you focus on it for a second you will realize that you already know the things that make you happy and make you feel better.  Just do more of them.  Keep reaching for a better and better feeling and you will climb your way up the ladder to a place where everything in your life just flows with ease.  It means shifting your focus off of the thing that you are not enjoying or appreciating and putting it on something that you always enjoy or appreciate.

At it’s backbone, this is all about gratitude, which is the first of the Six Simple Truths.  When you can keep your focus on people, things and activities that you can truly appreciate or be grateful for, then you are flowing in the right direction.
When you are stuck in anxiety, depression, anger or even just boredom, you are not focusing on what you have to be grateful for you are focusing on what is not ideal, or what is not “right”.  The more aware you become of this (the basis of second of the Six Simple Truths) and the way you are feeling, the quicker you can start moving yourself in the desired direction. Just keep in mind that it is always easier to take small steps in the right direction than huge leaps.  So if you are very unmotivated or blue, don’t be looking to jump straight to ecstasy, instead, try reaching for anything that feels just a little better than where you currently are.

It takes time to get consistent with this, but remember, it’s progress, not perfection that we’re going after.  And when you can get yourself to feel better, everything else will just fall into place, even your weight release…really.

So get out there and have some fun and when you return to the task at hand, it will be easier.  (Think of it like getting up and walking away from math homework and then coming back to it re-energized)

I hope this helps.  We’ll be talking more about this for sure in the future.

Thanks for tuning in.

Much love,

Nealon Hightower

Listen to Your Heart

January 7th, 2010 by admin

What you want, wants you.

I believe there comes a time in everyone’s life when they become unclear on what to do next or where to begin or how to get what you want. I think what even more people question is, “What do I want?” And though these questions have been pondered by nearly everyone that has walked the earth, even to this day and age, with all the information at our fingertips and vast knowledge available to us, it would seem we are no closer to these answers than we’ve ever been.

There is a simple answer. (more…)
