I was interviewed on South Florida LIVE last week, and I received several emails after the show saying I was too tough. One person even said I was ‘mean’. This is NOT an uncommon response to the mental toughness message. I’ve been called every name in the book since I started delivering speeches about mental toughness back in 1996. Jack Nicholson said it best to Tom Cruise: “You can’t handle the truth!” The middle class mentality would rather die fat than grow up and solve a tough, (but simple) problem like obesity. That’s all I was saying in this interview, and it’s why I wrote the book, Die Fat or Get Tough.
(www.diefatbook.com) Middle class thinking is the problem and mentaltoughness is the answer! You want to feel great? Get fit. You want to look even better? Get fit. You want to make more money, have better sex, enhance your self esteem, be more productive, and be happier? GET FIT! But first you have to get mentally tough. World class thinking won’t make you thin and healthy, but that’s where it all begins. Watch this 3 minute interview and judge for yourself. Was I on track or did I sound like a jerk? You decide. I’ll look forward to hearing your comments. Steve Siebold (3 minutes)
