Danny Miranda:

An Ohio University set out to examine the effect of a toxic diet on heart disease in the 1970s. They fed rabbits a high cholesterol diet that attempted to mimic what humans do to their bodies.

They found the diet affected the rabbits the same amongst all trial groups, except for one group of rabbits who mysteriously had 60% fewer symptoms.

At first, it was assumed that these rabbits had better tolerance to the diet. But they didn’t.

It turned out the only difference was the student who was running this group liked to hold and pet the rabbits.

Repeated experiments, in which one group of rabbits was treated neutrally and the other group was loved, found similar results.

Are we that different from rabbits?

Neil Strauss’ Editing Process

Danny Miranda:

Neil Strauss has a specific editing process that’s helped him author seven New York Times bestsellers.

The first time he edits his writing… It’s for himself.
The second time… For his readers.
The third time… For his critics.

This three step method is simple, easy to remember, and can be used by just about anyone who writes. Maybe try it out?

The 3 Month Rule

Danny Miranda:

The person others see you as today is the person you worked to become in the past 3 months.

Hypothetical example: You do all the “right things” for 10 years straight. Workout, eat right, meditate, read, etc. Then, you decide… “You know what… I don’t need to do this anymore. I already did it for 10 years.” So you stop doing them.

What happens next?

In the first week… nothing changes. You’re still jacked. You’re still well-read. You still have a clear head.

But over the next month or two…

Your personality *does* change. People start thinking “What’s up with this guy?” The slightest comment starts to irritate you.

By the end of the 3 months, your gut is sticking out. Your muscles are still there but they don’t pop like they used to. You’re fed up with everyone around you.

That’s all it takes.

3 months.

So what does that mean for you?

It means the inverse of this hypothetical situation is true as well.

If you’re not where you want to be, you’re 3 months away from living the life of your dreams. You need to do the disciplines daily…

But if you do…

In 3 months, people will be shocked (in the best way). And more importantly? You’ll be proud when you look in the mirror. Get after it. 👊 👊 👊
