The Fountain of Youth World Summit with Donna Krech writer, speaker and "belief builder."

Kevin: Right. Let's get into that system, it sounds good. I'm fired up. What are some of the key things that we can identify for people who want to be successful in weight loss and success? How people can identify their motivational assassinators, and what they can do to get through them. So, we'll start with the first part of the question, what are a couple of things that people need to identify as keys to success or things that are causing them failure.

Donna: I think you can probably do it in one and that is you can maintain your motivation so that you can have life success. You can maintain motivation. I don't know if people stop and realize that motivation has been zapped. Identify a few of the keys to whether it's weight loss again or business success, relational success, it doesn't matter." The very first thing I would tell you Kevin is that you need to picture a funnel in your mind, and I don't care if coming out the bottom of that funnel is permanent weight loss, permanent fitness, or being a millionaire, or building a business empire, it doesn't matter what is. When we go to the top of that funnel and I'll just use, for example, weight loss, what happens is people look at that funnel and go, "Oh, I've got to watch what I eat. I've got to put all the different foods that I eat to that funnel." No, no. I'll tell you that if you can picture that the bottom part where the, you know, the end-result comes out, that bottom part of that funnel, you're going to go up on that funnel only about 15%, and 15% of permanent weight loss has to do with food.

Kevin: OK.

Donna: Now you are going to move up on the funnel, and I'll give you about 30% more space in that funnel and I am going to tell you that movement has to do with about 30% of permanent weight loss. It's more important than the food, but it's not the remaining 55%. The remaining 55%, Kevin, is motivation or what we call life success. And I could prove that to you by telling you to ask anybody you know this question, "Well, let's see have you ever counted calories to lose weight?" "Yeah." "Have you counted carbs to lose weight?" "Uh-hmm." "Have you gone on the newest high-protein craze?" "Yup." "Have you tried the bars?" "Uh-huh." "The pre- packaged foods, etcetera?" "Yes." And we could just keep going and going, and everybody goes yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yeah. OK, so you've done about everything there is to do with regard to food, and you're still not at your goal, right? So, it must not be about the food. It must be about focus and belief and habits and emotional reaction and surroundings and time management. It must be about maintaining motivation. Now, I can go to that same thing with you and have the bottom of the funnel be making money or business success. Business success only has about 15% to do with the sales that that business makes.

Kevin: Gotcha.

Donna: It's only got about 30% to do with the marketing and the relationship. It's got 55% to do with maintaining the motivation so you can celebrate when times are high and keep going when you hit the hiccups. No matter what the successes we're trying to achieve, you got to picture that funnel and you have to understand the components of the funnel.
Now, the second point, the second thing that I would identify is that you need to understand that in that 55% section live, unfortunately, the motivation assassinators, but the good thing about getting to know the motivation assassinators is that that is how you now can attain never-ending motivation. The motivation assassinators are focus or they try to zap your focus. You would maintain your motivation when you learn how to maintain the focus. The negative belief, motivational assassinator, but then learning how to build your belief and you can completely change your belief, you can completely change from "Money only happens in people's lives who are conniving and evil" to "I was created to be incredibly wealthy and full of abundance and prosperity, so that I can bless others lives as well." Habit is what "H" stands for, emotional reactions, surroundings, and time management and the "E" for emotional reactions can also stand for energy, but the acronym that we live by is FBHEST. That's how you maintain motivation, that's how you start to increase never-ending motivation, and that's how you identify the motivation assassinators.

The third thing I would say, you asked for three keys, is to understand life success, like I said weight loss is not about food, anymore than building a business is about making sales, or leaving a million dollar legacy is about making money. It's about maintaining motivation. You have to know where you want to go, and you got to understand ahead of time what is most likely going to come against you to keep you from getting where you want to go, and then you make a choice, and if you'll allow me to say it this way, choose your weapons because if you've got a motivation assassinator coming against you maintaining your motivation, there are tools that you can use, simple, easy to use tools that will equip you with a never- ending motivation artillery, and you can take out the motivation assassinators. That's been the biggest difference in my life from the old story to the new story. The biggest difference in my life has been...listen I just identify... because they don't go away completely ever, but I identify them. I can see those motivation assassinators when they start showing up and I get rid of them so quick. Where unfortunately, we in the past, we've let them kind of eat at us.

Kevin: Right.

Donna: And then sometimes even, I'm sad to say, they destroy us before we even realize they were coming against us. Well now, I know which of them are going to come against me most often, and that's true by the way for everybody. Everybody's got a couple that comes after them most regularly.

Kevin: Let's talk about what that means. What is never-ending motivation? To me, that sounds awesome. I want to know how you can do it. I think everyone has some sort of an issue with motivation, maybe procrastination, maybe "laziness," so what is never-ending motivation and let's just tear into it.

Donna: Well, let's talk about the person I mentioned a little bit earlier when we were talking. Marsha is a...she really is a go-getter. She really is. Yet she found herself at a point in her life...and she has been a goal-setter too, by the way, so she's a go-getter and she's a goal-setter. She found herself at a point in her life where her confidence had just disappeared. She was unfit. She was depressed. As I mentioned before, she had an incredibly low income in a company where there was astronomical potential in the position that she was in. She knew the potential that she had in her position, but she also knew that she was not motivated, that she didn't feel the motivation she had once felt. Now, she didn't understand why she didn't feel it. She just knew that she wasn't motivated and she would tell me that, "I'm just not motivated. I'm just not motivated," and you know what, if we're honest, we can all say that about a certain point in our life, "I am just not motivated."

Well, we began to go through FBHEST, and we began to identify what was zapping her motivation, so that she could then build the never-ending motivation, and she identified that when she was in her work environment, she was pretty good. She wasn't really producing a lot because the motivation had been zapped, but she felt better when she was in her work environment because it was positive, it was upbeat, it was uplifting, and at about the moment she would go home, she would get into a funk. She would, in her case, dig into the ice cream, sit in front of the television with the remote in her hand and never left her house for like the whole weekend. Now, you have to understand, her personality is very social, very outgoing, very fun-loving, and she was completely the opposite of most of what she is, and her motivation assassinator was "S," as in Sam, and it was surroundings, and she identified that in order to build her never-ending motivation, she had to change her surroundings. Now when she did that, she became incredibly fit. She lost weight. Her habits began to change. She doubled her income. Her entire life got better. She thought that her motivation assassinator was time management because she was a little bit scattered and not getting everything done when it needed to get done, and while the time management tools provided in never-ending motivation were very helpful to her and she really has applied them, when we really got to analyzing it, we found out that her main one was surroundings and again, we all, like I said, we all have a couple. When she got her surroundings kind of repaired, she really focused on the time management tools with never-ending motivation and, well, that's how everything has happened. She is now making more money. She is more fit. She is building her career, she's, I mean, she's completely changed her look. She is so confident and her life is full of friends again, and it was simply because she needed to learn how to build never-ending motivation.

Kevin: Right.

Donna: So, that she could keep it going in her life.

Kevin: And so, if she is having these challenges, what are some of the ways that, what are some of the techniques that she specifically used? How do you go about changing some of that belief?

Donna: We identified first, obviously, which of the motivation assassinators come against you most often. From there, we then know how we can begin to give you never-ending motivation by providing you with the tools. So, we'll use more Marsha's example. She believed it was time management, and like I say, in most cases of her life, she was right. Time management was a problem. Most people can't and don't identify, "Oh, gosh! Time management is a problem for me." They go, "Oh, my Gosh! I am so busy. I'm so busy." So, when I hear a person say that to me, I can then begin giving them tools. Marsha began to use that tool and just picked a couple of those techniques. One of which was she cut her television back. She didn't cut her television out because that's pretty unrealistic for most people. She cut back and in place of the television, on one day, she would workout and on another day, she would read, some sales building or personal development building material. OK. So now, she had found time to build herself up where she was spending time that was actually taking her down. She then started making more money in less time because of the tools that she was using in the time she had found.
