Luke’s Famous 2 Word Speeches

Rant Add comments

One of my clients recently compared me to the speaker Tony Robbins.

It flattered the heck out of me.  (Tony is awesome!)

Just one problem – my personal motivation speeches are too short.

When someone tells me they want to lose weight but don’t want to exercise or change what they eat, here’s the speech I give them:

“You’re lazy.”

If someone comes in and says they aren’t going to follow the advice they paid for in a consulting session, seminar, or course of mine, my two word speech is a little harsh:

“You’re stupid.”

Sometimes people announce that, in spite of overwhelming evidence that aerobic exercise actually causes muscle loss and fat gain, leads to more illnesses, and beats up your joints like a bookie with a baseball bat, that they are going to keep running for a hour a day anyway.  My response?

“You’re stubborn.”

Last week a woman told me she can’t follow her diet because she doesn’t want to lose weight and make her family and friends feel bad….

“You’re crazy.”

To people who order diet pills and “magnetic weight loss earrings,” I usually say:

“You’re deluded.”

See, most people aren’t willing to face reality.

The great author Robert Ringer wrote, “Reality isn’t the way you wish things to be, nor the way they appear to be, but the way they actually are.”

Until you own up to reality you can’t start making changes.  I use my rude two word speeches to try and wake people up to what they’re doing.

Here’s my last speech for the day: “Rock on!”
