Day 321: My Video Featured On Diet.com Homepage!

G'day,

It's been a crazy few days, I have spent most my free time answering email and messages from people who have seen my video titled 84 Days In 48 Seconds.

This video has taken on a life of its own. This video has now been watched over 220, 000 times!

I honestly never realized it would be seen by this many people. This is because there are now millions of videos on YouTube so it is extremely difficult for any video to get even 1,000 views.

However, if your video does break out it will get seen by a lot of people and may even attract attention from the "big websites" which will add exponentially more views in a short period of time.

This is what happened yesterday, as I was contacted by Diet.com for placement of the 84 Day video onto their homepage!

I am not a member of Diet.com, however they do run a very popular 10 week Challenge of their own which documents one person's weight loss journey with weekly video updates.

It is great to see a big site like Diet.com using this type of accountability tool for their members. Can you imagine the pressure to succeed when your video is being seen by 500,000 people on YouTube in real-time each week?

I know personally the pressure to follow through on your physique transformation in real-time has been a massive factor in my success thus far (still a long way to go!).

Perhaps you could start using YouTube as your own accountability tool to keep you on track and accountable to other people in real-time too?

If you interested in seeing what real-time accountability looks like on YouTube just take a look through my video archive here.

Before I sign off today I'll just mention that there may be an even bigger platform that this 84 Day video may be featured on soon (Hint: US TV!). That's all I can say right now, I'll keep you posted if it goes ahead!

Cheers,
Adam Waters, NESTA-CPT
