The Slight Edge

One of the main philosophies that I live by in life is the concept of the slight edge.

Get a little bit better an inch at a time.

When you combine the mindset of the slight edge thinking with consistency, life transforms and you can control your destiny.

In today’s episode, I cover this concept of the slight edge.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/podcast/why-i-practice-the-slight-edge/

What Can You Learn from Falling Twice in One Morning?

Not too long ago, I went outside to get in my truck for my morning workout followed by a day of highly focused work.

I had a little trouble opening the door because they had iced over, which was my first clue that it was slippery.

The thought crossed my mind that I should watch my footing before I put my bags into the back seat.

No sooner did I close the door than I stepped on one of our railroads ties that lines the driveway and I went flying. Luckily, nothing was injured and it served as a jolt to my nervous system, which was like having coffee mixed with crack.

I did my workout, meditated and went off to my first meeting. When I pulled into that parking lot, I thought, hmmm, that looks slippery. Mind you, it was still only 8AM so the sun didn’t get to do it’s thing yet.

I stepped out of the truck and wham! This time I took and even harder fall right onto the pavement. I was nervous to look at my tongue because I knew I had bitten into it pretty good.

Luckily, it was only a cut and not a severed chunk.

I gathered myself and headed into the meeting with a bloody mouth, not as bad as it could have been.

What’s the lesson here?

I knew in both instances that it looked and felt slippery and had the thought both times, ‘I hope I don’t slip’, which is a weird thought to begin with for me.

Yet, in both cases, I slipped and fell. My brain was telling me to be extra careful and I didn’t heed the advice.

Be aware of your environments, be it the actual physical environment or the people around you. Your brain is hardwired for survival, usually the signals it is sending you are spot on.

Listen to your ‘gut’.

What Does Your Sunday Night Look Like?

Don’t worry, I am not asking you to give up your Sunday night for a hangout.

Nope, I am usually holed up on a Sunday night with Devon.

Yet, if you are like most people, you may get the frequent ‘Sunday Night Blues Syndrome’.

That’s when you feel a dip in energy, a feeling of dread and a sadness because your weekend is over.

How about you make this Sunday night different.  Plan out your week, write down 3 things that you love in your life, 3 great memories you’ve had and why this coming week is going to be great.

Life is the story you are telling yourself about ‘it’.

Your mental fitness is just as important (in my opinion, more important than) your physical fitness.

The Compass of Your Life

Last Friday, I had a call with a friend about whether she should go all in on her own fitness studio.

After making sure the numbers made sense, I asked which way she was facing more resistance.

She replied that it was definitely towards going out on her own.

Well then, that’s the way you must go.

Part of what makes life so cool is that we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen.  I mean, think about it, what if you knew every single thing that was going to happen to you before it happened?  Life would be a drag.

With that in mind, one of the points on my compass in life, True North if you will, is figuring out which way there is more resistance and going that way.  Resistance never shows up when you are trying to regress, only when you are trying to grow.

Member Showcase: Ryan Ross

Ryan first reached out to Newell Strength in early October of 2018.

He was actually the first dad to reach out for our first ever Ripped Dads contest in Flemington.

He was the father of 2 year old Owen and was expecting another son in December.

Well, Ryan now has two sons, a full-time career and managed not to miss a beat with his training at Newell Strength.

Listen to Ryan in his own words recall what’s different about Newell Strength compared to the other places he has been.

Keep it up Ryan!

The Action of a Panda

4 years ago, I got a tattoo of a ying-yang panda on my wrist.

To me, it represented duality, fierceness with tenderness.

It happens to fit for me and it is part of my philosophy of life.

In today’s episode, I discuss the action of a panda, and I think there will be one or two things within here that you find useful.

The Chinese Farmer

100 years ago, there was a Chinese Farmer.

His horse ran away and all his neighbors came over and said, ‘What a shame’.

He said, ‘Maybe’.

The next day, his horse came back with 7 wild horses! His neighbors came over to marvel and said, ‘Isn’t this fabulous!’

He said, ‘Maybe’.

The next day, his son was trying to tame one of the wild horses and in so doing, broke his leg.

Once again, all the neighbors came by and said, ‘What a shame’.

He said, ‘Maybe.’

The next day after that, the Chinese Imperial Army came by because they were rounding up the younger men to join the war and they saw the son, with the broken leg, and excused him.

All the neighbors said, ‘Wow, amazing!’

The Chinese Farmer said, ‘Maybe’.

Ha! The thing is, don’t be so quick to judge the outcome of something, there is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ in everything.

Go with the flow.

Wolves vs. Squirrels

We have a lot of squirrels where we live.  Which means I get to observe them daily.

They are scavengers, often working alone, scrounging up material and food for storage.

Wolves, on the other hand, are predators.

They are pack animals, thriving on a sense of community, working together to take what is theirs.

A pack of wolves is a force to be reckoned with.

We are like wolves, or at least we are more like wolves than squirrels (and this is coming from a big time introvert).

We get much more done and stay the course more when are are involved in a pack with a common sense of direction.

Maybe the reason your fitness goals haven’t stuck or materialized is because you are going about achieving them like a squirrel.

Information isn’t the problem, so stop believing that it is.

Maybe you just need to find your pack (which is another thing that separates Newell Strength from anywhere else).

Alphabet Soup

10 years ago, I was on a quest to become the greatest strength Coach of all time.

I was rapidly investing in courses, Coaches, seminars, books and dvds.

And I wouldn’t change that for anything, it molded me into who I’ve become currently.

It got to the point that I had doctors asking me for advice on things concerning the body (some still do), which is great and I only point that out to tell you the level of knowledge I acquired.

I had some 20-odd letters after my name, the alphabet soup, which included exclusive certifications, secondary schooling and on and on.

I have let all but my master’s degree expire (because once you have that, you have it for good).

Why?

Because they didn’t mean anything.  Over the years, as I matured as a person, I realized that simplifying all that I knew was where the true mastery was.

If you can’t explain concepts to a third grader (with short attention spans, with their level of vocabulary and then having them apply what you taught), then you haven’t mastered it and I would argue that you have a menial understanding of the subject matter.

Be careful of all the ‘fake fitness experts’ out there.  They are a dime a dozen

Member Showcase: Andrew Tina

We are super proud of Andrew and he was recently awarded the member of the month for our Flemington location.

Andrew reached out to us before we even opened our second location in Flemington.  Apparently he had been following along and had high interest because of a wake-up call he had while Coaching youth football.

Andrew started at Newell Strength in the third week in September and has since lost over 60 pounds!  All while improving his attitude, energy levels, mobility and strength levels.

Andrew is a walking inspiration.

Check him out here, in his owns words.
