This Dude Saves Lives Like It’s His Job

It might seem like a far out statement to say someone saves lives like its his job, but in this case, it’s Dr. Andrey’s literal job.

I haven’t met another Doctor like Andrey in my life and I’ve met a lot.  He is cutting edge, outside the box and he actually cares about each and ever patient and potential patient.  

I have too many stories to tell about the heart this guy has.  

You can take a listen to the interview I did recently with him on Hillsborough and Hunterdon REAL right here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/hillsborough-and-hunterdon-real/id1515959526?i=1000486670249

I Finally Saw It!

About 3 weeks ago, we were up in New Hampshire with some great friends, making memories to last us a lifetime.

The days were filled with amazing hikes and swimming in rivers with nighttime chats around the firepit.  

And if you know me, you know that I am always in search of the ‘hard to find’ and something I always wanted to see was a bear in the wild.  

Well, wouldn’t you know it, the guy in the picture below came to our dumpster two nights in a row.  (There was no bear bar on the dumpster, the manager told me to put a cinder block on it, as if that would work, ha!).

I watched in awe from our bedroom the first night and then from ground level from the boys room the second night.

Is my life complete now?  As far as seeing a bear goes, yes, but in all other ways, the show and wonderment must go on.

You never know when the moment will come when something you have always wanted to happen will happen and you will remember it forever.  Pay attention because life is always happening.

Once Your Mindset Expands…

I was incredibly fortunate a year ago to be able to hire Matt Furey as my personal success Coach.  This is a cat that is super modest, despite his extreme success.

In fact, people don’t know this, but Tony Robbins has paid him a few times to come and do a consult (I always wondered who the masters went to as their teachers).

Everytime we have a Coaching call, he expands my way of thinking.  So funny enough, he actually brought this up on our call last week.  

He said, ‘Kyle, once the mind expands to new realities and possibilities it can never go back’.  And how right he is!

The problem is that most people don’t let their minds expand because they get stuck in a rut with their way of thinking.  

Once you know what’s possible, why would you settle for anything less?  When I see someone use a weight in the gym that they’ve never used before, I will tell them, ‘Awesome job!  Now you can’t ever go back, you now know what your new capabilities are’.  

 

In which area does your mind need to expand?

The #1 Skill You Must Know

As you may or may not know, I have Coaches for multiple areas of my life.  I wholeheartedly believe in Coaching. 

On a recent call with Matt Furey, my Mind and Brain Coach, he was helping me to re-frame some goals and struggles.  

Which got me to thinking: if more people knew how to re-frame, more people would succeed.

You and I can look at the same situation and see something totally different.  And it all comes down to the question we ask of ourselves about that situation.  

Actually, most people don’t question the situation, they just say in one way or another ‘F my life’.

However, I have been trained and taught to always ask myself, ‘Where is the silver lining?’ and ‘What is great about this problem?’

Your brain does not like open loops . So if you ask it a question, it was will go on a mission to find the answer.  

There you have it, now you know how to re-frame and you didn’t have to spend 2 days in a seminar hooting and hollering.

Idaho in New Jersey

4 years ago, Devon, Munchie and I took a vacation out to Wyoming and Idaho.

A lot of people  know this but a lot don’t know this; when we took that trip, it was booked with the idea of going out there to scout out because we thought we were going to move there.  

It was really nothing more than escapism on my part.  

The things we thought we could only find on the other side of the country were right here.  

We found and moved into a house on the water.  

But more importantly, we realized that happiness isn’t a foreign destination.  

Your mind will play tricks on you and try to get you to think that you can only be happy when (you fill in the blank).  

Happiness comes from freedom, play and growth.  

Wherever you go, there you are.

Where Will You Be In 23,000 days?

Almost a year ago, we gathered to celebrate my grandparents 70th anniversary. 

Amazing!  

If Devon and I are fortunate enough to even live that long, we will celebrate our 70th in about 23,000 days!  

It’s mind boggling to think about the commitment required for anything to stay focused for that long: a calling, a career, a relationship, a life…

My grandparents are a part of the greatest generation.  They were taught never to give up and to be resilient.  

Resilience will take you all the way to the top, especially in the microwave world we now live in.  

Listen, it’s easy to feel like you should throw in the towel when you start stretching your comfort zone.  But if you give into that feeling, you’ll never grow.  

Be resilient, put one foot in front of the other and see what happens.

Memory Lane: The Original PIT

In 2008, my parents let me open a gym their basement.  

It was known as the PIT.

And unless you’ve heard stories or watch videos from the Youtube channel from 2008/09, then you’ve never seen it.

Well, here it is:  https://youtu.be/UHxNv0jq5TQ

Yup, we have all come a long way.  Thanks for your hand in building up Newell Strength!

Laziness and Energy

I had an epiphany last week. And that epiphany was this:

To create anything, we need to bring energy to the table.  Creating can only happen when energy is present and ramped up.  

Think about money for example; money is just a form of energy, an exchange for you providing energy.  Some people’s energy can affect tons of people, while other people’s energy can’t even affect themselves.  

When we go into freeze mode, when too much stress piles on, we are entering a depressed state.  Everyone has dealt with depression of some sort at one point or another.  When we are in that frozen state, energy is crap and creating is almost impossible.  

So, what’s this got to do with you?

If you want to create better health, you need to bring more energy to the table, not less. 

If you want to switch careers, you better up your energy.  

If you want to have better relationships, you better up your energy.  

Sometimes, you have to be ‘lazy’ in order to cultivate and protect your energy.  When I say lazy, I mean you have to recharge; maybe that’s a little extra sleep, maybe it means doing something fun and so on.  

I used to sleep very little because I thought it was a sign of laziness and therefore weakness.  Little did I know that I was robbing my ability to create what I aspired to.

Don’t Envy the Transformers

On our last date night a little over a week ago, Devon and I were talking about the brain and how change actually  happens.  

(Don’t you feel sorry for her sometimes that she is stuck with my weirdness?)

I was explaining to her the difference between thinking about change and when change actually happens.  Many people think and ponder changing their life for the better for months, years, heck, even decades!  

In their mind, change and transformation is this long, drawn out process that must be suffered through.

In reality, real change happens in a split fraction of a second, once you make up your mind to transform.  Will the physical manifestation happen in a split second?  Nope, but all things start in the mind first.  

People that have totally transformed their lives have done so by first making up their mind to do so.  So, while you may think about changing, it will remain nothing more than that; a fleeting thought that you have every now and again.  

When you finally make up your mind to transform, it’s like a lightning bolt.  

You don’t have to envy those that transform into the butterflies of life, you can BE one yourself once you decide to BE.

Fax About Focus

I remember when I first read the line, ‘What you focus on expands.’

Bam!  It hit me square in the jaw.  So profound, yet so simple.  

While you cannot control your thoughts, let alone anyone else’s thoughts, you can control what you focus on.  

For a long time, I trained myself to be like the Terminator, in my own mind.  As soon as I felt an emotion I didn’t like, I would ‘clear the calculator to zero’ and direct my attention elsewhere.  That is both a good and a bad quality depending on the circumstance.

Yet, I knew that I had a choice in what I focused on.  Clearing of the calculator was not good when it comes to deep, human relationships.  

Emotions are like lighter fluid for your focus.  Think about a time when a partner broke up with you.  You probably went through the gamut of ‘What if….’.  That is emotion + focus gone crazy.  Take those ‘what ifs’ and throw them out the window because they are an endless rabbit hole.  

The ability to stay focused on the prize is one of the hardest things to do.  It requires that you constantly connect to why you are doing what you are doing.  It’s very easy to lose focus on the bright shiny new object.  

Bright, shiny, new objects and unchained emotion are the two things you must be on guard for when it comes to remaining focused on the right things.  The goal is to keep the goal, the goal.
