Put Your Mind Where Your Eyes Can See It

A week and a half ago, I was having a nice conversation with a loyal Newell Strength client, Dan, and his son Daniel.

 

I always love seeing them together because I know how much of a great bonding experience lifting together is, especially for a father and son.

 

Well, in this particular conversation, I was explaining to Daniel the concept of a good workout.  

 

If you are going to enter the weight room and throw around the iron, then you must make sure that you put your mind in an uncomfortable situation.  See your mind in the palm of your hand and picture new grooves and pathways being formed because of the demands you are placing upon it in your workout.

 

Now, it depends on the purpose of your workout plan, but for me, if I don’t go somewhere that expands my mind, it was a less than fruitful session.  

 

Be aware that working out is first and foremost for your mind (it’s absolutely useless when used as  a weight loss tool). 

 

Something for you to ponder.

Who Can You Help?

About 5 years ago, I added a bumble bee tattoo on my left arm.  

 

It’s hard to spot but when you focus in, you can see it.  

 

It represents a concept from an old mastermind group that I was in where you never know the power of your words or energy towards another person, so be sure to reach out with a word of encouragement from time to time.

 

And that is all I am reminding you to do.  Be someone else’s Coach today.  No, you don’t have to get into the weeds with them, just offer them a boost.

 

Afterall, a Coach is someone that can help get someone from point A to point B, point B representing a place that they can’t get to on their own (after the term ‘stagecoach’).

 

When you become too focused on the self, troubles arise.  When you shine your focus on someone else, your worries melt away.

 

The same door you give through is the same door you receive from.

Here’s How I Did It

A week and a half ago, I was looking forward to leg day with my buddies Frank and the Wolverine.  

It’s an unusually tough workout as legs should be and it is nostalgic for me since it brings back memories of my competition days.  

Anyhow, we’ve been finishing with a set of 4 minute squats (to put this in perspective, it’s rare to see anyone do even a 30 second set of squats) after a whole bunch of other tough stuff.  

Well, I planted the seed in my brain a few days prior to see if I could do the entire set with only nasal breathing, no gasping for air through my mouth.  

And wouldn’t you know it, I was able to do it.  How?  Well, I’ve been practicing and learning and realizing the benefits of it.  But what it boils down to is that I simply decided that that was what I was going to do.  

New area of my brain was accessed.

Decide you are going to grow and you will.

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

Mary Lost 15 Pounds and 7%!

Mary first approached me about doing the Panda Challenge in early March, but by that point, the first round had sold out.  

I knew from Mary being a client at Newell Strength during the prior year, that she is quite the endurance athlete.  

She had asked me questions about fasting before and had an interest from the edge of the water.  But she decided to go all in with the second round of the Panda Challenge.  

She wound up losing 15 pounds and 7 percent body fat, despite not being a large person to begin with.  

Why did she want to do that?  Simple, she wanted to master her eating habits and improve her performance.  When you are going long distances, every pound can lead to more of a pounding on your joints.  

Take a look here at what Mary’s experience was like.

The Reason MJ is the GOAT

About a month ago, a 10 part docu series about Michael Jordan’s last championship season wrapped up. 

It brought back a lot of memories for me because I was an avid fan back then of the NBA.  

Once MJ retired, I appreciated his greatness even more because you realized just how dominant he was.

It is clear in the series about how competitive he was and how he wanted to win at all costs. 

Some of our former high school and college athletes keep in touch with me on a regular basis and they said that after watching it, it was apparent that he wasn’t a great mentor and things of that nature. 

I said, ‘Guys, he wasn’t trying to be a great mentor.  Usually great mentors in sports aren’t the best players.  Jordan had a sole purpose of winning, no matter what.’

They saw my point and I think anyone that played with him can say that they became better in all aspects of life because of being around such a dominant and winning mindset.

To me, it will never be equaled, which is the reason no one else can ever be considered the greatest of all time (GOAT).

How can you start making your mindset just a little bit better?

Breakthrough for Brax

About two weeks ago, we were at our good friend’s beach house.  It’s one of our favorite places to BE.  

It is amazing to watch the relationships with Brax, Tank and Emma evolve with our dear friends.  And Devon and I know that it takes a village to raise a child.  

Watching Brax learn from Sweet Lou in the pool was amazing.  Brax rapidly progressed from Friday night until Sunday afternoon.  

Much, much quicker than an adult can learn anything.  

Part of the reason is youth and a, ripe brain.  But the other part is that Braxton is so endlessly curious.  He is self-competitive.  

He asks a ton of questions, he tries something, then evaluates and adds on the next skill.  In this case, it was jumping in the pool with no life jacket, staying underwater for up to 10 seconds, searching the bottom of the pool for toys, etc.

It was amazing to watch and I was as proud as a dad could be.  

What did I learn from Brax?  Simply to always be endlessly curious and to be better than I was prior (prior day, prior week, prior year and on).

Leaders Are Inquisitive

In today’s episode, I explore the concept of leadership and asking questions.  

By nature, I am a skeptic.  This is at the root of one of my  personal life philosophies of ‘doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing’. 

I may be wrong, but at least I ask questions.  You can take a listen to today’s episode here: https://unlockingyourinnerstrength.libsyn.com/leaders-are-inquisitive

Amazingly it All Started With This

9 years ago, I made today’s video.  

It’s about how I began and yes, it began with a simple exercise band.  

Take a listen for 3 minutes and try to gain a spark of inspiration.  

(Don’t mind my eyes, they  were a bit puffy because of allergies).

Enjoy! https://youtu.be/wa61Mmg9mRs
