With that in mind, I want to give you all one final (and certainly succulent) excerpt from the book.
Well, two actually. One for your mind. And one for your body.
The first is a small extraction from the section on “How To Get What You Want Out Of Life”.
The second is a series of some of the downright dirtiest kettlebell complexes I’ve ever concocted.
I hope you all enjoy these two small selections from “Fitter, Happier, More Productive”.

Success = Imitation:
How To Get What You Want Out Of Life
These notes are my own.
But they are not all mine.
Does that make sense?
If not, it will soon…
Throughout my unremitting and tireless pursuit of strength and “optimum health”, I have thoroughly come to the conclusion that your success is more about what you do, rather than what you think.
Of course you should take time to rid yourself of any“head trash”.
Read As a Man Thinketh.
Go to a Tony Robbins seminar if you have to…
Just know that “thinking” alone will get you nowhere quick. All of the motivation, positive thinking, and “visualization” in the world isn’t ever going to sculpt you the body of your dreams.
And as sexy as it sounds, you will never be able to just “think away” body fat.
And that is really what this book is all about – a collection of notes you can implement immediately.
Throughout this extensive collection of notes, I have quite literally given you every single reason, tool, and opportunity to succeed; and it is now on YOU to take action.
Don’t go out there and over-complicate things.
It’s only as difficult as you make it!
Because when it comes right down to it success is merely imitation.
As unsexy as it sounds, your success heavily depends on your ability to be a copycat!
Modeling, as it is most commonly referred to, is mimicking the behavior of those who are more successful than you.
My greatest success from a physical standpoint didn’t come from reading tireless amounts of research, fitness books, or magazines. For the most part, all that ever did was crowd my mental-bandwidth.
Instead, I found success when I started to make friends with folks much stronger, much leaner, and much smarter than myself.
I began to model my behavior after the folks who already had what I wanted; which was the proverbial “hot-bod”.(Hey, I’m not afraid to admit it…).
I ate like them. I lifted like them. And I tried to live as much like them as I possibly could.
I mean, wolves hang with wolves right?
Sure enough, I quickly became a product of my environment. I became a wolf.
So if you want to be lean, then you better model your behavior off of those who are leaner than you.
If you want to attract wealth, then you better model your behavior off of those who are wealthier than you!
Do you think stopping off at the donut shop every day after work is a strong behavioral reflection of those who maintain a single digit body fat percentage year round?
I’m telling you that it’s not.
Don’t bullshit yourself.
If you’re goal is to drop 30lbs, but your behavior is still reflecting that of a pessimistically obese person, then you’re just lying to yourself.
I can’t think of anything worse than that.
Again, these notes are my own.
But they are not all mine.
They are a collection of the most effective habits, principles, and systems utilized by the worlds leanest, stronger, and most successful people.
I hope you take the time to mimic them to the best of your ability…
And with all of that being said, just be careful what you model yourself after
You may very well become it.
