Monday Mindset: Resist and It Will Persist

When  I first  started working out seriously, back in my sophomore year of highschool, I was all consumed.

 

I would spend literally hours in the gym, wanting so badly to get bigger and stronger.

 

I knew that with resistance training, I had to overcome the resistance in front of me in order to force my body to grow.

 

In life, what we resist will persist.

 

We need to go into the resistance, it is one of the surest ‘x marks the spot’ on the map of life that I know of.

 

And if you are avoiding something because it  is going to be tough, then that thought will eat at you until you tackle it.

 

Thus, that which you resist will persist.   Resistance training of the mind is a real thing.  Resistance of all forms is there to make us grow, just like I found out nearly 25 years ago when I first started hitting the weights.

 

And if a situation keeps coming up with a different dressing, but the same type of problem, know that it will continue to come up until you overcome the resistance to it.

The Real Reason I Dropped Home Ec

We had an awesome date night not long ago with another couple that used to live 2 townhouses down.

 

The night started with Devon and I going for manny/peddies:).  Yes, I go from time to time…

 

Anyhow, we wanted to socialize a little bit afterwards so we went out for a drink with our friends.  Now, Stacey and I graduated high school together.  We were acquaintances but not friends.

 

Out of nowhere during our relaxing cocktail she says, ‘I thought you were such a jerk in high school and so did all of my friends.’

 

Devon started laughing and so did I, which I followed up with, ‘What did I ever do to you?’

 

There was nothing I did, she took my introverted ways and interpreted them as arrogance and then she also saw that I had a bunch of athlete friends because, well, I was an athlete.

 

I explained to her that I was horribly shy in high school and insecure like many people are.  She reminded me that we shared a home ec class together our freshman year.  That made me think of the home ec class I signed up for my senior year.

 

I only lasted a week because I found out there would be a presentation at the end of the semester and it scared the B-Geezus out of me.  As I said, I was terribly shy and thus petrified to speak in front of others.

 

The teacher found me in the hallway before basketball practice and ripped me a new one, calling me lazy and having ‘senioritis’.  If she only knew…

 

I regret making that decision but like anything, that same lesson continued to appear again and again until I was willing to slay it.  In college, I practiced a 5 minute ‘how to tie a fishing hook’ presentation for weeks because I was so nervous.

 

After college, I enrolled in ToastMasters and now I have zero issue with public speaking.  That which we resist, will persist.

 

Deal with the lessons of life as they come your way because, well, they won’t go away until you embrace them.

What Do You Mean ‘Don’t Ice’ Your Injury?

6 years ago, I came across some compelling research on the healing process for the human body.

 

And it went against the grain, just like so many things that we teach at Newell Strength.

 

What’s that you ask?

 

It was the idea of not icing an injury.  I could go on to why that is, but that’s not the point of this piece.

 

The point is that we are all affected by cognitive dissonance to some degree; this idea that we are so entrenched in a belief that we cannot fathom the other side and refuse to see the other side.

 

Well, if there’s one thing I am good at, it is ‘emptying my cup’ and examining all sides of an issue, implementing and experimenting and then making my own conclusions.  With my second knee injury, I didn’t ice one time, in fact, I did the opposite: heat, compression, movement and so forth.

 

I had a record recovery and my doc was shocked.

 

Last week, a good buddy texted me an article from a big publication about ‘How we should no longer ice an injury’. He said, ‘Look at that, you were right.’

 

In life, don’t be married to too many things, keep an open mind and be like water, test stuff out, teach it to learn it and continue to grow.

Way Back Day: Everyone Has a Plan Until…

Growing up, I was a BIG Mike Tyson fan.

 

‘Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face,’ is one of my favorite Tyson quotes.

 

In today’s throwback video, I discuss this concept in my old office.

 

Hopefully it resonates with you!

 

The perfect time to start is now….

How to Turn Lemons into Lemonade

As far back as I can remember, I had an  optimistic mindset.  I  would always look for the positive in situations and in other people.

 

I took this way of thinking and ran with it.  In fact, one of the top skills in life and one that I teach whenever I get a chance is the skill of reframing.

 

In every situation, there is a positive.  No matter how bad it seems in the time being.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about how I flipped my horrific knee injury into something that has helped hundreds of people all over  the world.

 

Yes, you can turn lemons into lemonade, no matter how dire the circumstances seem.

Great Goals Attract

Have you ever had a friend set such a big goal that you became excited just by being exposed to it?

 

Almost as if your first thought were something like, ‘They’re crazy, who do they think they are?’

 

And then it transitions to inspiring you?

 

There’s a reason for this way of thought.  When you first feel resistance towards another person’s BIG goals, it’s because it exposes your limited way of thinking at the current moment.

 

Once you get over that, it will magnetize you because great goals attract and put off great energy, while mediocre goals attract little energy.

 

So imagine what having no goals does….

Your Decision is Proven When…

I always love it when another Friday the 13th rolls around.  It brings me right back to Halloween mindset, even though we are nearly in winter.

 

Anyhow, one of the things that I have been blessed with is the ability to make quick decisions.  Who knows why this is, I am sure it has to do with nature and nurture, but right or wrong, I don’t let fear stop me very often.

 

And because of this, I often act with speed, which is a huge advantage in the game of life, especially in business.

 

Think about it, everyone wants to know that their decision is the right one, so they wait and wait and wait, hoping that all the lights turn green before they put the pedal to the metal.

 

But you know something?

 

The only time we can be certain that our decision was the correct one is after we have made the decision.

 

Either way, you win, because you took action learned.  Even if it was ‘incorrect’, you still win.

 

Because remember, you only lost if you don’t know why you lost.

Pay Peanuts, Get Monkeys

There are many ‘copy-cat’ gyms that have come and gone over the years.

 

They make the mistake of thinking that what makes Newell Strength special and unique is the technical side of what we do.

 

And, yes, I will put our Coaches up against any crew of Coaches anywhere, they are, afterall, the most knowledgeable Coaches in the industry; it’s even more so about the community that has been created at Newell Strength.

 

That’s not something that can be copied.

 

There’s a reason the copycats charge much less than us, because you get way less.  In life, you get what you pay for.  If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

 

Is your health an expense or an investment?  Depending on how you answer that, I have just the place for you, either way….

Member Showcase: Lenny Schiro

Lenny was one of the first new members to join Newell Strength when it became an official facility back in 2011.

 

I remember having so many great conversations with Lenny, soaking up knowledge and wisdom from him any chance I had.

 

Lenny told me that training hard helped him in negotiations, it was a mentality.  That stuck with me.

 

Lenny explains his experience at Newell Strength throughout the years and how Newell Strength is different.  Check it out here:  https://youtu.be/ukU0LuyywPY

Resistance is There to Make You Stronger

When I first started lifting weights, I didn’t take it seriously.  I was lifting because my football Coach made us.

 

Then, a few years later, going into my junior year of high school, I bought in.  I did it because I wanted to do it.

 

I would spend hours, literally, in the gym.  There were times that I couldn’t lift my arms for days.

 

But you know what? I got stronger.

 

You get bigger and stronger when you lift weights that your body hasn’t been exposed to before.

 

And in life, you face resistance and obstacles to make your mind and spirit stronger.  Don’t shy away from these obstacles.

 

They are there to help you grow.

 

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I discuss that very concept.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/12/09/Resistance-is-There-to-Make-You-Stronger
