Have you got a plan or are you just drifting through the motions with no clear goals?

Having a plan is the most important thing and being able to visualise whatever it is your want to achieve. It doesn’t matter what your goal is. A plan thats locked together with a burning desire to succeed is potent. Kyle says its like having ‘rocket fuel’ that  will propel you out of the bell curve of being average and mediocre.

The right track

The purpose of any goal is to increase your happiness, and you can instantly tell when you’re going off on the wrong track because you become unhappy along the journey. Kyle shares his knowledge and wisdom of how he used his happiness gauge to guide him along the right track when he tells you about his inspiring story from the depths of depression to being a stage ready, natural bodybuilding superstar.


Having a burning desire tied with a solid plan is key. But to be truly passionate about what you’re doing is the only way you’ll find that burning desire. Most people go through the motions or follow the journey of family and friends because they think its the right thing to do. Kyle shares his thoughts on why you’ll never truly succeed.

Having no regrets

A burning desire to achieve any goal only comes when we are trying to be our true authentic self. If you want to look back on your journey and have no regrets and leave your foot print in the sands of the universe, its all about showing your true self. Only then will the desire and the passion truly shine through.


Kyle’s story is an all inspiring one. He was no superior genetically gifted athlete, but the fact that he took two sports and maxed  both his mind and body in the two sports showed his sheer determination to succeed and willingness to over achieve. Going above and beyond what most people would do. Kyle lives by the 3 ‘F’s’ which he shares with you and shows you how you too can become an overachiever.

Key Takeaway Points:

  1. Be passionate about what you want to achieve
  2. Have a solid plan to get you to your goals
  3. Remember happiness is found in the journey along the way
  4. Have no regrets and progressing forward

Do You Get Disgusted with Red Traffic Lights?

Do You Get Disgusted with Red Traffic Lights?

This is the official first post on Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I hope you enjoy it! 🙂


“Accept your limitations, accept your imperfections. That’s what it means to be a human being! And accept yourself as you are- with joy, not in helplessness. Because existence accepts you….” –OSHO


I love the clarity that a good vacation brings me. While sitting on our porch in the backwoods in Idaho doing my morning reading, I came across a line that has always struck a chord with me: THIS TOO SHALL PASS.


And although it also refers the magical moments in life and it’s a very good thing to repeat to yourself before a night out with family or friends or a day at the park with you kid (BE IN THE MOMENT); I will use it here to refer to the obstacles that we will face.


There are two types of rose-colored glasses: the ones that make people think nothing will ever get in their way and that every bounce of the ball will go their way and the second kind- knowing the duality of life and that the ying to your yang will arrive, for after all you can’t have peaks without valleys. But with this second kind of rose-colored glasses, you have chosen that you will respond with acceptance to your obstacles.


When an obstacle arrives, we have a choice to decide our attitude and not much else at that very moment. And as a quick aside, as we know from Mind Mapping, your thoughts drive your emotions, however, most people have been lead to believe that it’s the other way around.


Are you going to look for the silver lining that exists in the inevitable obstacle in your path? Or are you going to ‘wish it wasn’t so’?


Let’s say you started out on a business venture or fitness venture and you miscarried the first time around, things didn’t quite go as planned. Does it give you the right to complain and gripe? Certainly it does, but realize that worry is nothing more than wasted energy and these qualities will do nothing to make your life better.


Use this analogy because sometimes analogies help us to realize our silliness a little better: Most people view red traffic lights as a nuisance but not much else. What they really are is just a small obstacle in your way from you getting to point A to point B. If every time you came to a red light, you threw your hands up in disgust and undid your seatbelt to get out of the car and walk away from the car, would it make sense?


So silly, but the answer is obvious. You will have red lights, you will have green lights, and the duality of life will be there alongside each and every one of us. Winning, losing, tragedy and triumph will be there, guaranteed. We can accept the obstacles in our path and use them to become better. I repeat, you are going to have valley’s and lows, they are coming your way full steam ahead! Accept and acquiesce my friend. I’m glad to be back!


Resistance is a Bitch

No matter who you are, you will face this at some point but its knowing what to do when it makes its appearance that is key to your success. Kyle shares his thoughts on Resistance and how you can access a higher sphere of development in this short, enlightening episode.

Be Ready For Battle
Its a force you can’t avoid. It stands in the face of all of us – whether we like it or not. When you’re trying to go from a low sphere to a higher sphere of development, resistance will show its face. Its going to try its best to throw you off track. Use resistance as your ‘guiding compass’ Kyle says. If you’re feeling resistance, you’re on the right path.
Ideas Are Easy
Kyle tells us why its never the ideas or the thoughts you have that make something ‘hard’. Its actually being able to sit down and take action thats the hardest part.
Be Stupid
Remaining stupid in your quest for greatness is crucial. Kyle tells us his inspiring story about not knowing whats around the corner, and if he knew the steps he’d taken already in his own life, he’d have run to the hills and passed up the opportunity.
You’ve got to believe and realise that you can accomplish great things. On your path to greatness, you’re going to come across people that tell you its going to be impossible. Kyle shares his method for flipping this statement round and using it to your advantage.
The Mother Of All Skills
Repetition, repetition, repetition. Realise that you CAN learn any skill and its simply going to take time. You’re going to be bad at first but if you push through the resistance and keep going, you’re going to come out the other side on a higher sphere. Kyle shares his all time favourite books to success and pushing through the resistance or ‘the dip’.
Blind Faith
Just like in the Indiana Jones Movie, you too have to take the leap of faith and step off the bridge in front of you. Kyle shares his own experience why he thinks the time is now. Inspiration is always looking for someone to work through and if you pass up the opportunity presented in front of you, you’re going to miss out.
“You should never be waiting for all the lights to be green before you start”
There is no perfect time and your time is now.
