Find Your Low Hanging Fruit.
Want to know the easiest way to start losing fat?
Or really, to accomplish ANYTHING….?
Find the low hanging fruit and pick that shit off the tree.
It’s called that because they’re easy wins.
And if you really use your imagination here… you can picture an apple tree full of fruit.
You’re STARVING and you’d love to just snack on some apples, since you happen to run into this beautiful and plentiful tree…
What do you do?
Do you climb to the top and start picking the highest apples?
No way in hell.
Because you’d have more energy to climb if you ate first, so might as well grab the low hanging fruit.
On top of that, what if you fell while climbing up there?
You’d feel pretty dumb if you did that, knowing there were apples down low you can reach just by standing straight.
And you might not even know how to pick those apples properly yet, either.
Are the stems hard to break?
Do the apples come off easy?
How many can you grab at a time?
You won’t know, unless you start low.
And you don’t want to get to the top without knowing HOW to do it properly, do you?
Didn’t think so.
Because that’s exactly how so many people fail.
They skip the simple steps, don’t spend time developing the initial habits, and jump too far ahead because their ego fuels an “All or nothing mentality”.
Then they “Go all in” and start with step #9 instead of step #1 — aka climb to the top for an apple, instead of grabbing the ones that are at an arm’s reach.
Does this make sense?
Is this clicking for you?
Can you think of times you’ve done this?
Maybe even some low hanging fruit in your life right NOW that you’re ignoring?
That’s why I wrote this.
Don’t let your impatience to succeed surpass the value of the low hanging fruit.
That low hanging fruit is your foundation.
That’s what gets you started and provides you with the foundation to all your future success.
Start with the apples you can reach now.
And climb to the top when they’re all out….
That is, unless you’re full from eating so many apples by then.
AKA — you got the results you wanted by consistently grabbing the low hanging fruit and no longer need to climb to the top for the difficult ones.
P.S. — that happens, a lot.
