Yesterday I was watching yet another Animal
Planet tribute to Steve Irwin – aka ‘The Crocodile
My son watched with me and when he saw something
heroic, which was about every four minutes, he looked at
me and says, ‘I’m Steve.’
My goodness. You mean you’re not Darth Vader
anymore? Or Spiderman? Sponge Bob? And so
on. Now you’re going to be a real human? Oh,
Anyway, ‘The Crocodile Hunter’ was teasing an
alligator while explaining how they attack. At first
Steve stays back a bit, then he gets a bit cocky
and puts his hands in the water. Being this wasn’t
crazy enough, he put his bare hand (minus any
food) out for the gator.
Then, after a few minutes of toying, the gator
caught Irwin’s hand between his jaws. As if nothing
had happened, Irwin stayed relaxed. When the
gator pulled away from the bank, Steve moved along
with him. An instant later the gator released Irwin’s
Irwin then turned to the camera, with his bloody hand,
and began explaining why the gator let go of his hand.
It was simple – He didn’t react in a fearful way. He didn’t
pull back. He went with the bite – and therefore the gator,
not sensing a battle, let go.
What Irwin explained is a simple martial arts principle –
as well as an important law of the Universe. When you
react in a fearful manner, you provoke fear in others.
When you react by staying relaxed – even smiling – others
don’t know what to do next. And most of the time the fight
ends. You need two to tango – as the saying goes.
When it comes to your health – think of yourself as two
people, often in combat with one another. You have your
body – then you have someone inside your body who
looks you over and puts you down, tells you you’re too
fat, too thin, too ugly, too weak and so on.
Yet, the key to changing your direction is NOT self-criticism.
It is not stressing out about how you look and feel.
The key to improving your body is accepting the condition you’re
in right now. Not ‘liking’ it. Merely accepting where you are now –
letting it be okay – but also having a desire to change, and to act
upon that desire.
When the gator got Irwin’s hand, he accepted it as a reality, he
stayed calm and got free. He got free without a fight.
Think of that, my friend. You can get free from the extra flab and
weakness that you may feel imprisoned by. You can break free
by accepting where you are instead of denying it. You can break
free by accepting your condition – and while doing so, allowing
positive changes to flow into your life.
It just so happens that my program is your key to you escaping from
the gator’s clench.
