Opposed to Doing the Opposite

Every Wednesday afternoon, I take the kids for a nice long bike ride to a playground, in which we play Michael Myers tag, followed by the ride back to my truck.

 

It’s always one of the highlights of my week. 

 

When we are there, Emma is scaling the steps and slides, Tank and Brax jump off heights up to 7 feet high and my phone is nowhere to be found.  

 

All opposites when you compare how most operate.  When I go to crowded playgrounds, I see parents trying to stop their children from exploring and pushing their limits, I see parents on their phone, there in body, but not in mind.

 

And I just shake my head.  It’s not out of judgment, well maybe a little bit, but more so out the missed opportunity to have a memorable experience.  

 

A friend recently remarked that she couldn’t believe how laid back we are with the kids.  I said, ‘Listen, in life, do the opposite of the majority and you’ll be right on target’.  

 

This has never failed me in fitness, nutrition, writing, business or parenting.  

 

Just some food for thought.  

 

And if you want to see how I apply this to my Coaching in the Panda, follow the directions below.

How Much More Money Are You Willing to Waste?

Two weeks ago, I received two separate text messages. 

 

One was from a long time Newell Strength member, who had recently purchased my Panda Diet book.  She went through it and applied the lessons and protocol within and dropped 8 pounds, easily I might add, in her first week on the plan.  

 

She was ECSTATIC!

 

The other text was from an old friend that ordered the book, read it in one sitting and wanted to inquire about joining the next Panda Challenge.  He raved about the book, over and over.  

 

Point being, you can simply purchase my book, for a pittance of $30 and have all the ‘dieting’ answers you’ll ever need for the rest of your life or you can continue to search out dieticians, magical programs, ridiculous experts that will have you weighing every morsel that crosses your lips, only to have those programs work very short term after which you’ll suffer the dreaded rebound.  

 

Or, if you want direct Coaching throughout the Panda program from yours truly, the doors are open for that as well.  See below, although by the time you read this there may not be any spots left.  

 

If you want to get the book, that link is down below too.

If You Wait, It’ll Be Too Late

7 months ago, the country, and world at large, went into lockdown mode.  

 

There was mass panic and fear, which led to a lot of irrational decisions and actions.  For me, from a Mind Map perspective, this whole time has been a fascinating thing to witness as I watch the real world application of Mind Map unfold.

 

For one, the emotional center of your brain functions opposing the logical, more human part of your brain.  When emotions are high, logic goes out the dang window.  

 

Nevertheless, the point I want to make today is that I have had more people than I can count, reach out to me privately, to ask me how I’ve been able to stay positive and strong throughout.  

 

How’d I do it?  I’ve been preparing my mind my entire life to deal with whatever comes my way.  If I had not been such a student of the mind, then I may have fallen in lockstep with the masses and gone into a fearful state.

 

If you are setting out to do a marathon, you train for it.  You don’t just show up the day of and hope for the best.

 

The good news is that even if you’ve never trained your mind before, you can begin now.  You never know when the next time you’ll need to call upon the powers of your brain.  

 

But if you wait and keep putting it off, it’ll be too late.

Don’t Limit Yourself to the Your 5 Senses

3 years ago, while being taught by a great Zen Master, whom I paid handsomely for a year of Coaching, I saw him do something unbelievable.  

 

He was going through his Tai-Chi rounds on camera and then boom, he pushed energy towards the camera screen and you could see the screen from the other side vibrate.  You  could even see it on rewind.  

 

I couldn’t believe it, but he could.  He explained that the five senses are really just surface level and that there are energy fields radiating all around us, that we can control to a large degree.

 

I’ve since been using his secret methods in my daily rituals and when I tell you that my visualizations come true, it’s an understatement.  

 

Do I have a super power?  Nope, I just learned from him and applied my learnings.  

 

Your dreams, your thoughts and your body language, ALL of it radiates energy frequencies that you cannot see, just like radio stations.  

 

I’ll be holding a small, private workshop in November (date TBA soon) teaching visualization and theater of the mind.  Keep an eye out.  

 

In the meantime, know that you are far more powerful than you previously believed.

What Say You?

2 weeks ago, I was doing a walking Mind Map session with a client, when she shared with me what one of her prospective employers had asked her.

 

Fill in the blank: Failure diminishes _______________.

 

Her response when put on the spot like that was ‘confidence’. 

 

She asked me my thoughts and my immediate gut response was ‘weakness’.  

 

I could see the lightbulb go off in her head.  

 

Failure and resistance build you up.  If you are being built up, you are becoming stronger and less weak.  Resistance training of any sort makes you come back bigger and stronger (not only literally).

 

When you train your mind, you see the opportunity in every setback.   Setbacks are for you, they don’t happen to you.

Is it Possible to Run a Full Marathon Fasted??

To call Mary a fitness enthusiast would be an understatement.  

 

She came to Newell Strength about 2 years ago and later joined the Panda Challenge this past summer. 

 

Mary is a highly competitive endurance athlete, so her fears about the Panda were more based in performance.  

 

Well, I received a text from her this morning that read: ‘Good morning. Just had to let you know I ran the Marine Corps Marathon yesterday, 26.2 miles, all alone, fasted.  Did not use nutrition, but did use a liquid IV which has electrolytes and almost zero sugar (just like the ‘juice’ drink I recommend).  Not to mention, I was not well prepared with training because of my new job and my time was one of the better ones and I feel amazing today! The Panda is an absolute game changer!’ 

 

And here’s her short story of her experience with the Panda Challenge this past summer: https://youtu.be/nhSNSh0njKE

Here Are the Keys to Your Universe

I have some BIG news for you.  The secrets to your universe aren’t in some hidden cave at the bottom of the ocean, locked in a vault.  

 

Nope, they are right up there, in your brain.

 

And it begins with self-awareness.  

 

In today’s episode I discuss:

-fear of change

-the 3 brains

-how to become more self-aware and why that’s so important

As You Think, So You Are

Two weekends ago, we were at one of our former intern’s weddings.  

 

It was a great time for both Devon and I.

 

At our table, we had some cool people, one of whom was also trying to get into the fitness business.  

 

We wound up having a nice chat and as the night went on, he opened up about his fears.  

 

I said, ‘Look, what are you actually scared of?  You’re not going to die if you did fail at opening your in-home personal training business.  And, the only way you’ll fail is if you believe you will fail.  If you give yourself no other option but to succeed, you’ll succeed.’

 

I have a feeling after that little impromptu pep talk that he’ll be succeeding.  

 

As you believe, so you are.  Your thoughts lead to your beliefs. 

 

And sometimes, just having a chance conversation can flip the switch of your beliefs.

Pay for Peanuts, You Get Peanuts

Recently, we had a prospect inquire about training.  

 

He was shocked that we were so ‘expensive’.  

 

He griped that Gold’s was running a 3 month special for $99. 

 

Ha!  Here’s what you get at a big box gym:

 

-No attention, little if any guidance

 

-A plethora of personal trainers that want you to ‘grind’ and cut out carbs for the rest of your life, while of course charging you an arm and a leg for those extra sessions and advice

 

-A bunch of machines that you don’t know how to use and that have no real world application

 

-Judgmental stares from the meatheads and cardio queens that have made the fitness their life, rather than using fitness to enhance their life

 

-If that weren’t enough, there’s pretty much no sense of community 

 

-And being stranded to your own devices which is why most people just get frustrated and hop on the cardio equipment, like giant lab rats

 

If you want the nice box of gourmet nuts, you have to pay for it.  

 

Newell Strength is the box of gourmet nuts.
