Results not typical.
It's in either really, really small print or someone is talking really, really fast.
This statement is made in products for weight loss and get rich quick schemes. Why, you ask, is it in such small print or in such rapid words - because people wouldn't fall for it otherwise.
In a previous post about "Are You Typical" I wrote about failures. Why not be out of the ordinary, NOT typical, and lose weight in a healthy manner while exercising and building muscle?
Results not typical usually means that the results are usually less than what is depicted in the commercial.
Let's make results not typical mean we did more than the usual, more than the typical. Much more. I think I read somewhere that we use less than 10% of our capabilities. How much better could we have done in school? How much farther could we have gone or could go in our careers? How much more could we accomplish each day? How much more effective could we be in our weight loss efforts? Much, much more in many cases. I know I can do better. I can even sense myself resisting doing better. I am going to have to think about that one. Do we hold back because we are afraid that if we fail we will have that to think about? Are we playing it safe so that we don't do so well it will be expected of us?
What have you and I said about people who have lost weight and then gained it back? We cluck our tongues and shake our heads and wonder how anybody could do that. I have done it twice.
My results aren't going to be typical this time. How about you?
