Exercise The Power Of Thought To Achieve Your Goals #LLTV


First Step To Reaching Your Goals: Power of Thought

What’s goooooood Live Leaner…in today’s episode of Live Lean TV I want to talk to you about one of the most powerful tools you have for success…the big thing between your ears…more specifically, your thoughts.

But before I get started, I want you to keep an open mind because I’m about to throw a little bit of motivational sauce at you.

First thing, if you can’t take control of the power of thought’¦ you will have a very hard time living your BEST life.

Your thoughts ARE things…but not just ordinary things.

Your thoughts can be the biggest BULLY…

…like Nelson from The Simpsons…

power of thought


Your thoughts can be the best ever WING MAN…

…like I am to all my buddies…

How you doing

When you combine positive thoughts with a…



– BURNING DESIRE to obtain it…

You WILL turn your desires into reality.

It doesn’t matter if it’s your dream body, your dream job, or finding your dream significant other. You can do it if you really desire it and you’re willing to do anything, and risk everything, to achieve it.

Imagine what you could accomplish if you knew what your definite purpose was and you worked towards it EVERYDAY until it came true.

Nothing will be able to stop you!

Success begins with a…

– State of mind

– Definite purpose

– Action


People are too used to the word “impossible”.

Everyone knows why things won’t work or why things can’t be done. DON’T BE THAT PERSON!

Write down the word “impossible” and tear it up. Cut it out of your mental dictionary.

im possible

The only time I want you seeing those letters side by side is when you say “I’m Possible.”


Power of Thought: Success Conscious vs. Failure Conscious

Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who allow themselves to be failure conscious.

I see a few of these failure conscious people on my Facebook Page. It’s all negativity.  They blame EVERYTHING else for why things are not working out for them. DON’T BE THAT PERSON.

The point of this video/blog is to help you change your mindset from failure consciousness to success consciousness.

And I know, you may be saying Brad, I’m 300 lbs, I don’t know where to start, or what to do.

OK that’s fine. But think about it…

Do you really think you’re the only person that has ever been in that situation? Do you really believe there has never been another 300 lbs person that has ever lost weight?

There are plenty of success stories! The difference is those people took initiative, they had faith, and the desire that IT IS possible. And most importantly, they took action on investing in someone to help them.

Don’t Be A Quitter

Now…one of the most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting. People quit when they face a temporary defeat.

In my entrepreneurial career I’ve faced so many failures. There were times I wanted to quit and just go back to work at an advertising agency but i kept telling myself…

This is my destiny, keep working at it, I can make this happen.

I’m so pumped to say that this year has been my most successful EVER in all of my professional career! So even if you THINK you’ve tried everything’¦have you even asked for help? Did you invest in expert advice?

Before you reach success, temporary defeat and failure is inevitable.

Trust me, this is true. And when temporary defeat does happen, of course the easy and “normal thing” to do is quit. And that’s what most people do. But it’s the successful people in life that keep going.

There’s a saying that…

Success is one step

And I totally believe it.

Analyze why you’re failing, learn from the lesson, and keep moving forward no matter how hard it may seem.

I am so grateful that I did NOT give up on my dream.

Once you understand this, you will succeed in anything. Determination will always win!

So what is your desire in life, in fitness, in your relationships?

Figure out what you want out of life.

You are the master of your fate…

You are the captain of your soul…

You control if your thoughts are success or failure minded…

And you control if you take action on your goals!

Your thoughts are a magnet.


They attract the positive or negative forces,  circumstances, and people into your life that will bring you closer or further from your goals.

And I want to nail home this message.

There is no such thing as SOMETHING FOR NOTHING!

Anything of value CANNOT be had without a price.

But I promise…

The PRICE you pay in the form of sweat and discipline is far less than the VALUE you’ll get in your life from LIVING LEAN.

All successes begin with the first step.

The first meal.

The first workout.

The first time passing up that delicious looking bagel at the office.

If you want to lose fat and build muscle…

First magnetize your mind with the intense desire that it will happen, be success conscious, and take action every day towards accomplishing it.

I know I just dropped a lot on you…

So watch this video a few times and be sure to send it to the 5 people you hang out with most. Because as you know, you are the average of the 5 people you hang out with.

You don’t need to be perfect. Just strive to be better today, then you were yesterday.

  1. i hav lots of goals…. but the thing stopping me is that i am resisting
    myself to take the actions by finding excuses and reasons……… can u
    help me out???

  2. Hi Brad,

    Been watching all your videos for quite some time. I must say, you are doing an amazing job, i.e., really amazing job. (real source of inspiration) for many. Please keep up the good work. I wish you all the very best. And, i will for sure keep this motivation in your video with me. Thanks once again for sharing.

  3. Dear Brad,
    I am really positive and never ever once want to quit being fit. But the problem is, I just found out recently, I have binge eating disorder. I was terrified when I knew this. I’ve been trying to calm my mind, stay under control when it comes to eat and work out as much as I can, but it doesn’t help. Any advice, please!

  4. Awesome video I was already inspired this just put more fire in me. I’m a black belt in martial arts going for my second I feel like and do it and pass the test. I also work out 3 days a week I feel like now adding two more days.

  5. Impatience!! Want it now!! If that scale won’t move, I quit!! But so far, I’m on a roll. Ty for this video….you have to have a support system!!!

  6. hey brad ive been lifting very consistently for about 3 months and eating literally just like you and it seems like i get pretty lean towards the end of the week but right after my cheat meal i feel less lean, is it all mental? people tell me i look the same but i truly dont see it 🙁 p.s love your videos

  7. One of if not the major self-limiting belief is lack of belief in myself. I could have two solid weeks of clean eating and gym time, then something sets me off track and I know how hard I am on myself. My wife has to check me every time I do it. Blessed and thankful for her and your videos!!

  8. He knows and follows Dr. Esselstyn’s advice and that of Dr. Ornish; he has discussed this and acknowledged these clinician physicians on television programs, such as Leno, Letterman, and on PBS with Charlie Rose.

  9. BTW, I forgot to mention that these researcher /physicians have great YouTube vids readily available. They are lengthy, but they also show the clinical evidence on which they base their conclusions about fats in the diet [Dr. Esselstyn is famous for yelling out to the an audience (as seen in the video, “No OIL!”) because he feels so stridently about any kinds of fats in the diet; he’d even quibble a bit with Dr. Ornish allowing the consumption of fish oil in his published diets.

  10. I’ve listened to many of your videos. You are terrific! What great work you do!
    I have only one concern, and that’s about your feelings about consumption of saturated fats. I’m referencing the work of Dr. Caldwell Essylsten, Dean Ornish, ‘The China Study’ by T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Fuhrman’s work. etc.
    I’d really like to know more in depth of you stand about the consumption of fats. I’m a chemist [MS] by background, so feel free to ‘let me have it’.
    Many thanks for your great work!

  11. You just nailed my problem,my thoughts. I have all the tools I need to get fit, except the biggest tool of all – MY MIND. I have to get my mind right. I know when i get fit, and healthy I will be able to handle stress better,sleep better, have better relationships with my family,and friends, have the courage, and confidence to go out and live the good life. Honestly, you and Tony Horton inspire me to no end. I would love to get in the fitness game, and help people out as you guys do. Having said that, seeing that you guys are so good at what you do, I always tell myself that I could never come close to doing it as good as you guys. So I think why would people want to look to me for help when they can have you two. I have to remember that we are all unique in our own way. And go after what we want. Anything is possible with the right mind set. Loved todays video! Keep ’em coming please.

  12. my biggest thing is where to start. with food and exercise regimens. it overwhelms my brain and i instantly quit. still ashamed to say/write that

  13. Believe every word this guy says, I came across Brad on Youtube randomly. Best thing anyone could do who wants to live lean. I have lost a ton of weight (220lbs to 180lbs). Brad is an awesome guy, I believe in 100% of what he has to say and I’ve never met the guy once. Brad, I can thank you enough. Truly.

  14. Oh my god. I neeeeded this SO much! I know all of this but really needed to be reminded of it. Thank you thank you! Favoriting this to watch again later.

  15. I love this! Thanks so much!
    The thought that gives me a spirit of defeat is…you’re too tired, you didn’t get much sleep!

  16. My self limiting thought revolves around not being worthy of the effort … accepting that I’m less than I should be. This comes from negative self esteem. Alongside Brad’s words I’d urge everyone to exercise greater self compassion. Its being a good friend to yourself. If your best bud wanted something real bad and you could see them giving up, you’d advise support encourage and refocus. Not criticise. Which is what I am now trying to do with myself. Half marathon here we come…

  17. One of my self-limiting beliefs has always been that I don’t have the “x-factor” to take my career to the next level. I’ve been using everything I spoke about in the video to change this belief. And as I mentioned in the video, this has been the most SUCCESSFUL year of my entire professional career and the future is SO BRIGHT! What are you self-limiting beliefs?
