My Number One Drug of Choice

I started using this drug back in high school.

It was okay, because there was no way to test for it.

Did it give me a HUGE competitive advantage?  You bet!

In fact, I haven’t stopped using it since.

So, what is it?  Its something known as PHW.

It must be administered through your brain, then your heart and put to use by your body….

Pure, Hard, Work.

Yup, that’s it.

Dogged persistence and consistency.

Someone once told me, ‘Kyle, you know what the secret to my success is/was?’ (this as a very successful person in my opinion)…

‘Its showing up, waking up tomorrow and doing ‘it’ again.  Just follow that formula for the rest of your days and you will reach your potential…’

If PHW is a drug you’d like to start using more of, then simply decide upon it.

Member Showcase: Linda DeFeo

I remember a few years ago when Linda first walked into Newell Strength.

Coach Dana was giving her the tour and there just happened to be a football team we were training and about 10 other men training simultaneously.

It was just one of those afternoons.

Needless to say, Linda was a bit intimidated and wasn’t sure that it was the right fit.

She thought about it for a few nights and then reached back out to Dana.  Linda figured she would try it out for 30 days with our risk-free trial and if she didn’t enjoy the experience, then that would be that.

Well, she wound up loving the experience and realized that she fit right in.  She has seen Newell Strength evolve just was we’ve been lucky enough to be a part of her transformation.

Is There a Benefit in Education?

I resigned from my professional career as a teacher at the end of 2012.

I come from a family that has a lot of educators within it.

Education and knowledge is powerful.  Yet, if you are relying on schooling for yourself and your children, then you looking down the wrong path.  School is great, that’s where we learn to socialize and mature emotionally.

But you wont’ enhance your skillset too much at any level of formal education.

Yes, I wholeheartedly believe in educating yourself.  I just go about it in a different way.

You can take a listen to today’s episode which is all about my views on education right here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/07/01/Is-There-Value-in-Education

What is Your Life?

I remember going outside on a foggy afternoon, way back when I was 9 or so, to see what it felt like to be in ‘heaven’.

My understanding of life was limited, as is any 9 year old’s perspective. But in some ways, it is more pure than when we become adults.

Some of the happiest memories of my life are from when I was a young boy.

The summers of fun playing baseball, stick ball, pool parties, sleep overs, birthday parties.

That was the life.

That is life.

What is your life? When you break it down, it’s nothing more than a collection of memories and experiences. This moment, this minute, this is what you’ve got.

Life can be as magical as you want it to be.

The secret is in being grateful each and every day. An attitude of gratitude brings more and more to be grateful for.

But stop waiting for ‘life’. It’s right here, right now, enjoy it.

I thought that since this was on my mind, it was somehow on your mind too. Start your week off right.

‘No One Cares What You Look Like’

I competed in my first bodybuilding show back in the spring of 2004, 15 years ago! Man, time flies…

 

It began as a challenge to myself but like all things, if you aren’t careful, a healthy pursuit can quickly become something else and take on a life of its own.

 

I matured in later contests and realized that it was the process, the journey, that is what it was all really about.  I was never cut out to be a ‘bodybuilder’, it was just something I did.

 

But like you, I struggled with body image issues for a very long time.  And even though I do all this mindset work and yada yada, even with all that, after my contest in 2014, I fell back into big time body image issues after the contests were complete.

 

That was until my Coach, Scott Abel, pointed out to me, that no one cares what I look like.  Everyone is concerned with themselves.  It was perfect timing as Devon and I were getting ready to go on a vacation to the beach.

 

Don’t fool yourself and let your ego trick you into thinking that you are trying to change your body so other people will be more impressed.

 

What is it really about?  Get real, is it more energy, being happier, more confident?

 

When it’s about the externals and the externals only, you are on the wrong path.

 

In this case, your EGO isn’t your AMIGO.

I Don’t Care if It Looks Good on Paper…

Throughout the years, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how many fake experts I’ve run into.

People that simply repeat fitness industry dogma.

People that can tell you the science and write out the perfect program on paper….

But….

It doesn’t matter if it’s the perfect program on paper because the perfect prorgram for you is the one you can stick to.

That is why we place such an emphasis on Mind Map and the science of habit formation.

We will be the first ones to tell you that information is rarely if ever, the problem.  It’s a matter of compliance.

Complexity is the enemy of execution.

Do some soul searching and find out where in your life things are too complex and begin to strip away.

Member Showcase: The Legend of Lombo

Mike began training with us a few years ago after his sister Nina roped him in.

My brothers and I have known Mike for a damn long time so it was good to have him come on board.

Mike has made a complete physical transformation, but more importantly is the mental resilience and emotional muscle that he has built.

He went through a very tough time last year with the passing of his father and just 6 weeks ago, his twin boys, Ashton and Taven, were born 2 months prematurely.

Yet, he still finds time to work on himself because he knows that in order to be the man he needs to be for his wife, Larinda and the kids, he needs to be in his best shape possible.

You Have the Life You Are Willing to Tolerate

I wrote this letter as my most recent entry in my book to Brax and Colt.  In case you missed it, enjoy!

 

Boys, we all have a tolerance, a threshold if you will.

Today, what I want to talk to you about is the life you are tolerating.

In life, most people live it passively, somehow thinking that this is a practice run.  Let me be clear: this is not a rehearsal.  What you have left in the tank when life is over will represent your potential unfulfilled.

Wherever you are at in life when you are reading this is the life you have built up until this point.  Life is a progression, you can’t ever have ultimate success because each decade, in my humble but accurate opinion, is a stepping stone to the next.

 

Your first 4 decades are going to be about building your foundation, it’s going to be about the hustle (while also always cultivating energy, learn from my earlier mistakes of ‘grinding’).  By your 4th decade, you will most likely have a family and if you do, its up to you to provide.

If you move into your fifth decade and don’t have the health you want, the wealth you want or the relationships you want, its because you tolerated your results so far.

Its a tricky thing, because human nature is to seek out comfort, to remain in homeostasis.  It is not a natural thing to constantly seek betterment and progression, because of the change and discomfort that comes along with that choice (key word here).

But as I always say, what’s the alternative?

I don’t believe we can live our ultimate life while remaining complacent and tolerant of results and outcomes that aren’t quite what we dreamed of.

Now here is the key, at least the key that has worked for me.  Examine your life and see where you want better results and start measuring.  We cannot improve that which we don’t measure.  Think about that for a second.

Life is a game and in games, you are supposed to have fun, leave it all out there, compete and keep score! How the hell would you know who won if you didn’t keep score.

And then you course correct to continually get better.  You only lose if you don’t know why you lost.

Put on your battle armor because you will need it as you continually battle against the eges of your comfort zone.

Love you guys!
