Believe (20)


Are You Aware of Your Internal Drive?

A few years ago, I heard Professor first explain the concept of the apple tree in the middle of a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lesson.  

 

‘The apple seed wants to become an apple.  It has an innate intelligence.  It must become the tree, sprout branches and so forth until it can manifest as an apple.’

 

When we examine a tree, we understand that concept.  

 

Now, transpose that into your life.  What is your internal drive? You are becoming something and that something is an outward manifestation of some underlying power.

 

That power is the attention you have on a day in and day out basis as well as what you are envisioning for your life.  

 

Your life has its own ‘apple’ but unlike the apple tree, you have choices.

 

But you can only create the ability that you know you are the creator.

 

You may have to read this a few times to internalize it.

Count How Many You Have

This morning, on my weighted vest walk, I was contemplating what to make the Monday morning video about.

And this idea of ‘critical thinking’ kept popping into my head.  

Based upon different conversations I’ve been having recently, it’s become more apparent that the ability to think critically is more important than ever.  

It’s a HUGE advantage if you possess this awareness.  

Why do I say awareness?  Because, it takes awareness and setting aside the ego to examine your thought patterns.  Most people don’t critically think because they are either lazy (thinking does take a lot of energy) or because they’ve committed to a certain stance and to examine the other side of that coin might mean they would have to admit they were incorrect.

Listen, I always say, I reserve the right to change my mind at  any moment.  I know that as a voracious student of life (which I hope you are), I am always learning and therefore new information will eventually come along that makes me change your stance.

This is how the Panda Challenge was born and how it is continuing to evolve.

So, do yourself a favor this week and see how many conversations or thoughts you have that are genuinely original.  

The first step to change is self-awareness.

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 Should’ve Saw this Coming

2 weekends ago, I was down at the creek with the boys.

We were trying to catch frogs in between setting up little plastic army guys for battle.  

Tank and Munch wanted to take a break and go on the tire swing.  And man, we were having a blast.  I was twisting it up so they could do the ‘tornado’ as they were calling it.  They would get wound up and then I would let it unwind, while they were swinging about the water.

Well, after about 20 minutes, Tank wanted to get off.  I grabbed him and then he proceeded to puke all over the rocks.  

Yes, I should’ve seen it coming, but it didn’t phase him, he’s a tough kid.

Sometimes too much of a good thing is no good.  The key is in finding that sweet spot.

Why You Can Have an Advantage over 99.9% of People

As I’ve been looking back at videos I made from nearly a decade ago, I get goosebumps.

Why?  

Because, I am learning from my younger self.  Some of the stuff resonates now with me more than it did back then.  

It’s a cool thing when you can learn from your younger self.  Old videos, old journal entries and such.  

If you don’t have a record of your younger thoughts, then begin now.

Anyhow, enjoy today’s throwback video of why you have an advantage over 99.9% of people out there if you choose to.

Check out these ‘Unfinished Business’ Stories

Despite everything that is going on, I am happy to report that some of our transformation sweepstake clients are still focused and going strong.  

They had a choice just like all of us, revert back to old ways or stay the course and embrace the discipline to help them through these times.

They chose discipline. 

Enjoy! https://youtu.be/xaZgpSeDTz8

1- The Fat Shredder is coming!  Realistically it’ll probably start at some point in the backside of May and run until the 4th of July weekend.  Here’s all you have to do for now: start thinking of your teammates. Each team will have at least a member, non-member and one woman (teams of 3).  It’s gonna be epic and just what we all need at that time:)




Member Showcase: Snoop

It’s hard for me to believe that Snoop has been coming to Newell Strength for nearly 2 years.

He came in way back when with his son because his son wanted to get into better shape before heading off to college.  It wasn’t long before Snoop was asking about joining for himself and I knew from talking with him that this was way outside of his comfort zone.

So, truth be told, I thought there was no way this was going to last.  Yet, here he is, still plugging away.  And as you’ll see in this video of his story, he did it so he could set an example for his two sons (now that’s what a great father is!).  You can take a quick watch over here

P.S-We are having our annual Festivus party on the 15th of December.  It’s a great event, it’s BYOB and Potluck, kids are more than welcome (hopefully we will be able to get the live reindeer again this year).  All donations will be going to Coach Gina and her kids for the holiday season because as you may or may not know, their house burned down a little over a month ago….be grateful for the little things.




How to lift a mental fog




Here’s an X-mas Gift Article for Ya

Here’s an X-mas Gift Article for Ya

 

Milt Campbell may be the saddest story in sports.

 

He’s from Plainfield, New Jersey, there’s a field in town named after him.

 

Way back in 1952, it was between his sophomore and junior year in high school, he goes to the Helsinki Olympics and wins the silver medal in the decathlon.

 

He wasn’t even a high school junior yet.

 

Four years later, he’s a student in Indiana University and he wins the gold medal for the decathlon.

 

Then he goes into the NFL and then the Canadian Football League.

 

When he went to the Olympics, he also could have made the Olympic team as a swimmer, etc., but he decided just to focus on the decathlon.

 

Later in life, he got a gold medal in the martial arts.

 

In his 70s, he still looked like a pro-football player.

 

What’s so sad about that?

 

Well, he only spent a few weeks in the NFL.

 

In the late ‘50s, he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

 

After a couple weeks at the training camp, he was told that the president and the owner of the team, Paul Brown, wanted to see him.

 

He said, “Milt, why are you dating a white woman?”

 

Milt, who was African-American, said, “Mr. Brown, it’s none of your business.”

 

The next day he was cut by the Cleveland Browns and no NFL football team picked him up again.

 

Olympic historians have called him the unknown Olympic champion.

 

Everybody knows Bruce Jenner.

 

Everybody knows Rafer Johnson.

 

Most folks don’t know him.

 

He spent most his life multi-level marketing.

 

He never got the acclaim he deserved.

 

Milt became a motivational speaker, and an unbelievably good one.

 

They say a charismatic person lights up a room when they enter it, and a non-charismatic person lights up the room when they leave it.

 

He lit up every room he walked into.

 

He’d say, “How many of you have goals?”

 

Everybody would put up their hand.

 

He’d ask, “How many of you have written down your goals?”

 

Most people put up their hands.

 

He’d say, “How many of you have your written-down goals with you right now on your person?”

 

Nobody would raise a hand.

 

Milt would reach in and take out a little card.

 

He said, “That’s my secret. That helped me win my Olympic gold medals. You have to write down your goals and keep them with you 24/7. “

 

He set his goals, and he took every challenge that hit him.

 

He played football in the fall and basketball in the winter and track and field in the spring.

 

One day he was in the weight room in the winter, when there was a wrestling match going on.

 

All of a sudden, the wrestling coach barged into the weight room.

 

He said, “Milt, here’s the deal. We have one more match left. I need a heavyweight, and the other team has a state champion.  If you come up and beat this guy, we’ll beat this team for the first time ever.”

 

So Milt Campbell, who never wrestled a day in his life, went up, put on a wrestling uniform, and beat the state champion.

 

He died of prostate cancer two years ago in the fall.

 

Sports Illustrated does a retrospective on all the great athletes who died that year, usually late in the year.

 

They left him out of their retrospective.

 

His achievements stand for themselves, though.

 

If you set goals like Milt Campbell, if you keep your goals in mind and in hand always, you can accomplish great things in spite of the obstacles that block your way.

 

Hopefully that little story about Milt inspired you a bit, but just to cement it a little further, here is an article I wrote for you about making 2017 the greatest year of your life.

Munchie’s Cold Hands

While preparing for this coming week’s Unlocking Your Inner Strength workshop, I have been digging back into a lot of brain science.

 

And, as it turns out, which I have been saying for years, the hands are highly tuned into the nervous system which means they are highly, highly tuned into the brain.

 

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that the hands are the key to unlocking the brain.

 

But let’s backtrack for a second here.

 

Twice in the past month, I went for a short walk with Munchie and didn’t put gloves on.  Not because of neglect or ignorance, but because I couldn’t find them.

 

Actually, it has happened three times, but the one time on our hike up in the Sourland mountains, Devon had me take my sox off to use them as mittens for Munchie.  Worked like a charm, thank God, because we were pretty far up the mountain.

 

Back to the story at hand.  One the main primal threats to the brain is cold (along with hunger, thirst and neglect).

 

I, myself, have always had very poor circulation in my hands to the point of pain when it gets real cold out.  Poor little Munch got this same trait from me.

The two other times I have been caught out on a walk with him, he started crying and screaming and I felt terrible.

 

It was because his hands were so damn cold.  Remember what I said before; the hands are greatly in tune with the brain and nervous system.  Now it all started to make sense why a person’s hands usually get the coldest the fastest.

 

It’s the quickest route to signal ‘danger’ to the brain.  If your knees got cold, it wouldn’t quite have the same impact would it?

 

Just a little connection to mind map from being open to observation, which further validated what I was working on for the upcoming workshop. Hands are the key to the brain.

 

What is your favorite thing in the whole world to study and learn about?

 

The more you are learn it and teach it, the more connecting of the dots to your favorite topic you can do.

 

Teaching is the greatest way to learn and the most rapid.

 

If you know someone that’d like to find the simple (not easy) path in the beginning of 2017, then send them to fill out one of our applications for our ‘Anti-resolution program’, which starts in a few weeks and is only $99 for the 30 day program.  https://goo.gl/forms/jKNTGBp6WEnomWCE2
