Excerpt from "How To Eat An Elephant: Simple Solutions for Lifelong Energy and Vitality"

So How Do You Eat An Elephant?

by Dr Brett Hill

Well as the saying goes, one bite at a time!

Have you ever wondered why dieting doesn’t work? Or why most people let their gym memberships lapse shortly after joining? Or why that positive thinking book or seminar wears off a few weeks after you attended it? The reason is usually that you haven’t really committed to change. You have decided to ‘give it a go’ or you have set yourself a short-term goal. Or you have simply tried to bite off more than you can chew. This often means that what you are trying to change is often simply too hard, or there isn’t enough margin for error. Or even worse, you don’t really believe you can make the change stick.

If you want to make real change in your life then you need to make a commitment for life. Whatever you decide to change needs to change forever. Sounds hard, doesn’t it? But it needn’t be. The trick is to eat that elephant one bite at a time. This means small steps of continuous and never-ending health improvement.

So what does this mean for you and your lifestyle changes?

Well, the best way to make big changes it to make them slowly, one small step at a time. So pick a small change that is easy for you to make, that you are prepared to make for the rest of your life, and do it. Once you have mastered that one, pick another. If you do this once a month over the course of a year, just imagine how much healthier you will be in 12 months’ time!

Health is a journey, not a destination

This book is designed to be a reference book for the rest of your life. You will never be perfect, no one is (and I certainly am not). It doesn’t matter if you redo a step 100 times. Your goal is not to be perfect, but to make continuous, never-ending improvement.”

Dr Brett Hill is a wellness expert, chiropractor and author of the life-changing book How To Eat An Elephant. He regularly appears on TV, radio and in print, and his media appearances, seminars, coaching and consulting have inspired thousands of people over the last decade to live a long, happy, healthy life full of energy and vitality. In his early 20s, Dr Brett realised that it was time to make a change. He had been the kind of child who was always sick – not terribly sick, but not terribly well either. For as long as he could remember he had suffered from coughs and colds at least half a dozen times a year, he didn’t sleep well, was low in energy and not particularly fit. He realised that he had been doing the same things over and over again (including regular doses of antibiotics) and kept getting the same results. He decided to do something different.
