I began to get quite a large following of students, and finally, I didn't catch someone laughing at me behind my back any longer. CLICK HERE NOW ■■■ http://ishbv.com/1minweight/pdf

  1. 1. HOW to STAY vegetarian LONG-TERM By Applying Simple Mind Skills © 2016 Rui Jun. Non-commercial, fair use allowed. 1
  2. 2. Using the “Golden Circle” by Simon Sinek  1. Give yourself a very STRONG “WHY am/did I going/go vegetarian?” The “WHY” must deeply resonate with your heart. It will not work if you force yourself to adhere to a STRONG “WHY” that doesn’t sync with your believes. Find a STRONG “WHY” that makes you feel EMPOWERED by just thinking about it. A STRONG “WHY” should be BIGGER than yourself. E.g. STRONG “WHY”: “so that no animals will have to suffer” E.g. WEAK “WHY”: “so that I can lose some weight” References: “How Great Leaders Inspire Action” TED Talk, Simon Sinek 2
  3. 3. If you cannot identify a STRONG “WHY” that is in sync with you… Here’s what to do:  2. ASSOCIATE & DISSOCIATE (practice this often – this will re-pattern your neural habits) Associate with and strengthen the positive objectives of the goal (veg diet). Dissociate from and weaken the negative hindrances towards the goal (veg diet). Using “Associate & Dissociate” 3
  4. 4. E.g. ASSOCIATE - Read up an get really knowledgeable about the benefits of going and staying a vegetarian and the negatives of a meat-based diet. Find and meet like- minded people who support your believes or can coach you. E.g. DISSOCIATE - Whenever you find yourself and others questioning or finding excuses for you not to go and stay veg, immediately dissociate the thought instead of blowing it up in your mind. Move your focus back to ASSOCIATE. Remember the rational decision to go and stay veg. Using “Associate & Dissociate” 4
  5. 5. ASSOCIATE & DISSOCIATE helps you strengthen your determination and believes for switching and staying on a vegetarian diet and eventually identifying the STRONG “WHY” you are aligned with. Using “Associate & Dissociate” 5
  6. 6.  3. Now work on the “HOW” (and “WHAT”) With a STRONG WHY you are now able to support your “HOW” and “WHAT” and kick-off your vegetarian diet and stay vegetarian. 1) Go back to “WHY” and 2) Practice “Associate and Dissociate” whenever you feel your conviction weaken. The “HOW” (and “WHAT”) 6

  12. 12. Cravings may be dependent or independent of our nutrition intake. It is that when your body craves meat it needs it. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” Nutritional issues can be addressed by clean, proper vegetarian nutrition and eliminating processed food devoid of nutrition. If the underlying cause of the craving is nutrition, the craving will be eliminated. 12
  13. 13. If craving continues, use the 6 CONTEMPLATIONS: Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 1) Seeing meat in their actual compositions 2) Seeing meat as a rotting lump from a decomposing corpse 3) Seeing meat as an animal with a face 4) Visualizing animal suffering 5) Thought transformation 6) Avoiding the 6 herbs 13
  14. 14. SEEING MEAT IN THEIR ACTUAL COMPOSITIONS Meat is compose of the same components as human flesh: Skin, fats, ligaments, muscle, bone, blood, nerves, arteries, veins, capillaries, gut, organs, sweat, pus, urine, shit etc. Nothing appetizing about all these. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 14
  15. 15. SEEING MEAT AS A ROTTING LUMP FROM A DECOMPOSING CORPSE Meat is but a small lump cut out from a decomposing corpse, it is no different from rotting flesh from a dead and decomposing human. Still hungry? Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 15
  16. 16. SEEING MEAT AS AN ANIMAL WITH A FACE Meat comes from an animal with a face - an individual just like us. They are not cubes, balls, cylinders, lumps, or slices which we are often misled to see. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 16
  17. 17. VISUALIZING ANIMAL SUFFERING Animals feel just like humans. They suffer from pain, agony, physically, mentally, and emotionally before they are brutally murdered. Watch videos and visualize their pain and suffering. Turning our heads away will not change the truth. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 17
  18. 18. THOUGHT TRANSFORMATION We will crave meat if we keep thinking about it. If we see or smell it, but don’t continue to think, the craving will not stay. Shifting your attention away from meat and engage your mind in other positive activities like promoting vegetarianism, will help avoid cravings. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 18
  19. 19. AVOIDING THE 6 HERBS Garlic, Onion family, Leeks, Chives, Shallots, Asafoetida. The entire Allium family of plants + Asafoetida gives meat their “aroma”. Without these, meat itself is bad smelling and tasting. If you are transitioning into a vegetarian diet, leave all these out in your meat cooking. For vegetarians, usage of these plants is optional. Dealing with “Cravings for meat etc.” 19
  20. 20. When there are two paths in front of us, we are hard- wired to take the easy way out. MAKE IT A HABIT TO FACE YOUR CHALLENGES and you will find that taking the path less treaded as a vegetarian is MOST REWARDING. FACE and GROW from CHALLENGES 20
  21. 21. You will LEARN: 1) To Find Creative Solutions To Problems. 2) To Face Difficult Situations and Overcome Them. 3) That “Difficult” is just a Mental Barrier. 4) To Face the Truth & Stand Up for What You Believe. 5) To Apply All the Above to Other Situations in Life. 6) So Much More! All This, by Simply, Not Giving Up on a Veg Diet. FACE and GROW from CHALLENGES 21
