Mind Your Beliefs

I write a weekly letter to the kids that I will one day put into book format for them to read when they become adults.  Here is an entry from a few weeks ago that I thought you’d enjoy!

_________________________________________________________________________

Hey kids!

 

As you may be able to tell by Braxton’s shirt, it’s the Halloween season!  One of our favorite family times of the year!

I wanted to talk to you today about beliefs and the power of your beliefs.

As a famous man once said, ‘Whether you  believe you can or you you believe you can’t, either way, you’ll be right.’

So why do we as humans sometimes choose not to belief in what we are capable of?

The answer is simple.

If we have limiting beliefs and we live up to those limiting beliefs, then we are validated and we are proven correct.

It seems counter intuitive, but the EGO likes to be right and likes to say, ‘See, I told you so!’ More often than not, the EGO thrives on playing the victim because playing the victim means that we don’t have to change, the problem is ‘out there’, not within.

I want you to picture a role model in your head that is stronger, tougher, smarter, more successful and the next time you find yourself in a tough spot or at a growth point, ask yourself how that role model respond and mimic that.

Lastly, and this is mind-altering, EVERYTHING starts and ends with your beliefs.

Your beliefs lead to…..

Your actions, which lead to….

Other people’s beliefs about you….

Which lead to their actions….

Which reinforce your starting point beliefs.

The only way to change the cycle is to change your beliefs.

Mastering your mindset is true power.

Believe that….

Love you! -Dad

Geoff, the BadA&& Lawyer

I can remember the first time Geoff ever came to Newell Strength back in 2012. He came to try it out with long time member, Frank.

Geoff was busy, having his own law firm, but he was going to be getting married and wanted to be in the best shape that he could possibly be.

He achieved that and as life happens, he stopped for a period of time with us at Newell Strength.

But then, after having kid #2, Jackson, he decided that he, being an older dad, needed to make his own fitness and health a priority.

So, he started back up and he is on fire. He makes it in at 5 or 6 am before his busy day with family and business starts. And as you’ll see in the video, little things like playing with the kids on the floor and then getting up, 20 times per night, have become easy.

That’s what it’s all about!

You can check Geoff’s video out here: https://youtu.be/u8GqEDm8TcU

Keep inspiring Geoff!

You Gotta Feel Some Type of Way

I remember back when I was really diving head first into the self-development world, as a young physical education teacher.

At that time, I was often drained since I was training for bodybuilding shows, teaching, getting my masters and launching Newell Strength from the ground floor.

Being tired, meant that it would be easy for the fatigue to set my mindset.  But I realized that I had a choice to either feel down or great.

So, I would often spend a minute in front of the mirror, just smiling at myself, knowing that it would send positive chemicals to my brain.

Your physiology holds the key to helping you change your state almost instantaneously and you need to work on the mindset of being able to choose how your days are going to feel.

Why feel down when you have the option of feeling up?

Emma is Now Sleeping Through the Night!

Emma was born a little over 3 months ago and at that time, I vividly remember telling Devon that my goal was going to be to have her sleeping through the night by Halloween.

 

And that we did.

 

Was it wishful thinking?

 

Nope, it was by following the same system that we used for Colt.

 

Braxton was 8 months before he was sleeping through the night and I vowed not to let that happen again, so we sought a program, Coaching if you will and used it for Colt and simply applied the same system to Emma.

 

When you have guidance and you follow a proven process, you can set goals up and knock them down, much quicker than if you just wing it.

 

And yes, we have a proven process at Newell Strength too that has helped clients lose over 30,000 pounds over the past decade!

 

In case you were wondering.

Arnold Said It, So It Must Be Right…

A couple of weeks ago, I watched the new Netflix documentary, Game Changers, about animal protein and such.

 

It was definitely thought provoking, but no matter what you think of the content, Arnold, who was one of the producers of the movie, had this to say about switching to more of a plant based diet:

 

‘Don’t tell someone they can’t eat meat anymore, because first off, people aren’t going to like that (they won’t form a habit around it) and they will reject it with a big F-U.  Simply ask them to see if they go one day per week without animal protein’.

 

Here we have perhaps the greatest fitness icon of all-time with some great wisdom into how habits are formed.

 

Don’t go ALL-IN, it rarely works.  Start to dabble and build a foundation, keeping your approach ‘alive’ as needed.

 

And yes, I think it’s worth the watch, as long as you have an open mind:)

The Importance of Knowing Yourself

For way-back Wednesday, I came across this old video with a prime Mind Map principle about knowing thyself.

 

Hopefully it gives you some food for thought and insight into asking the right questions about how you show up in life.

 

Enjoy!

An Amazing Pumpkin Carving

I am sad to see another Halloween in the books, but it’s okay, the fall is a wonderful time of year….

 

A week before Halloween, Brax and I had daddy-kid pumpkin carving night at his school and it was quite amazing to see some of the different designs that people had come up with.

 

I actually put a lot of thought and foreplanning into ours, but it didn’t look like much.

 

That’s because I made it a replica of the pumpkin from the opening credits of the original Halloween.

 

To me it was bad to the bone.

 

To others, it looked like Braxton had done it himself.

 

In life, you never know what will excite someone nor should you compare.  Comparison is the thief of happiness and comparison takes you out of the present moment.

Dude, You’re Crazy…

On the same night that the boys had their tub shenanigans (refer to Monday’s email), they were playing with sticks up in the street.

 

Emma was napping in my arms and the dogs were roaming around as well.

 

The sticks the boys had were a couple of feet long and as boys will be boys, they start sword fighting with the sticks.

 

Well, my natural reaction was to tell them to put their bike helmets and safety goggles on so they protected their head and eyes.

 

Somehow this came up the next morning at the gym and the Outlaw, long time friend and member, says, ‘I love it how nonchalantly you tell them to gear up for the fight while most people would have said NO stick fighting.’

 

And to be honest, that thought didn’t even cross my mind.

 

We all have our own style of how we show up in life and it’s all good.

 

Be YOU, even when it’s a little different.
