Is Today a Superstitious Friday?

Nineteen years ago today.

Yup, I remember watching it on tv.  Yes, I saw the second plane hit live.  

I was the only one in my fraternity that took 8 AM classes and I happened to be coming back from a class when I stopped to watch the television in our main room that was still on from the night before.  

I was confused at first and then it became pretty clear as the day went on.  It was no accident.

9/11 is a date that will live on in infamy, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a great day today.  

Two of my uncle’s were actually born on this date, two great men.

 

Pay respect by remembering those that were taken that day but honor them by living life to the fullest you possibly can today.

 

Superstitious dates can only be negative if you bring that energy to that date.

P.S-The next Panda Challenge will begin Monday, September 14th.  I am only taking 10 students this time and I have 3 NEW things that will be implemented into this journey.  It will be 7 weeks.  *ONLY 2 SPOTS REMAIN!!!*. To apply and set up a call so I can see if you’re a good fit, go to: https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/panda_diet

 

P.P.S- We are in fact having our annual Fat Shredder contest, albeit a little later than normal.  If you are ready for some fun, accountability and ready to take back your health, then this is it.  Contest begins on Sept. 17th and we are only taking 20 teams.  Each team is made of 3 people and must include at least one woman and one non-member (can be one and the same).  If you are interested, reply to this email or sign up at either Newell Strength location.




Evolution not Revolution

As I was going for my Monday morning walk, I had a smack of inspiration.

When this comes to an end, regardless of which beliefs you  have about it, we need to be thinking evolution, not revolution.

A revolution would only lead to force vs. force, which is lower levels of energy.  

An evolution begins more on a level of the self.  Yes, things should change after this….for the better. 

Appreciate your relationships more.  Realize that life is finite and that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but rather, spiritual beings having a brief human experience.  

Evolve to have compassion for those that differ in opinion, even if you will never see it their way.  

Let’s all start raising our vibrational energy  level as we come out the backside of this.

P.S-We will be up and running soon.  Some of you have been reaching out about the annual Fat Shredder contest.  We will be doing it, and are aiming to start in the beginning of June.  More details to come!




My Success Principles

Nine years ago, I made this video while driving to jury duty.  

In it, I talk about my success principles.  The interesting thing is that they remain true today.  

And I can trace my path back to following these principles day in and day out for the past decade.

See if there is anything that  you can pick up from this short clip, enjoy!

The Most Beautiful Quote of All-Time

While down at the creek on the same day as when we had the puking incident (see yesterday’s email), I was talking to Brax.

As I’ve mentioned, he loves all-things army, navy, marines, etc.

And as dad’s do, I’ve been painting the vision for him of how great he is going to be as a soldier one day.  Yes, we fantasize about him being a SEAL (Devon disagrees). 

Well, I was asking him about what he pictures and all that and he looks at me and says, ‘Dad, I just want to be a kid and stay with my family.’

Floored!!!

The wisdom of kids is so beautiful and in that case he was my teacher.

I think we can all ponder that for a few seconds and see how beautiful it was.

Think Differently- Kyle 

P.S.-If you’d like to work with us and have the best Coaching in the world, before this craziness is behind us, then check out the opportunity below.  The first round of clients are crushing it and they’d be the first to tell you  that it’s the best investment you  could make in yourself, particularly given the current climate…

1-Last week I opened the doors to the second Panda Challenge, which will be starting May 11th.  10 of the 12 spots are already taken and it looks like this will be the trend going forward for this Challenge as it’s one of a kind and dare I say, the most effective ‘Nutrition Challenge’ in the world (mark my words, you heard it here first).

What Are You Going to Do to Get Out of Your Comfort Zone?

This morning, I went for my 45-minute walk with my 80 pound weight vest on in a tsunami.

Why?

Because it’s Mental Toughness Monday.  

I am switching the name to mental toughness Monday rather than Mindset Monday because mental toughness is a skill.  Mindset is more fluid, some days we feel up, some days we feel down.  

But I have found over my life that when I feel down or in a rut, I can usually climb out just by challenging myself to be uncomfortable.  

What are you going to do today?  How are you going to challenge yourself?  Even if its something like taking a cold shower or writing a few sentences with your opposite hand.

 

DO SOMETHING!!!

Remember, mental toughness is a choice and a skill. 

And all skills can be learned.  

You got this.

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:) 

 

2-I am opening the doors to the second Panda Challenge, which will be starting within the next 3 weeks.  The first 12 ‘Panda’s’ are crushing it and dare I say, all 12 are on track to hit their 45-day goals! Yes, I only take 12 because of the high level of Coaching each client receives.  5 of the spots are already taken from people that just missed the cut for the first Panda Challenge.

What About Your Emergency Fund?

Each day this week I will be bringing one of the five areas of growth to get and learn from this situation.  Today’s topic is the emergency fund….

I am by no means a financial expert.  But I do know that all the ones worth their weight in salt will tell you that you need an emergency fund.

And for all those people that never saw the point in having one, now you can see it very clearly. 

An emergency fund is for just that, emergencies!

There are tons of people out of work right now.  If they had 3-6 months socked away, then there would be nothing to stress financially right now. 

Yes, you read that right.  You want to have 3 to 6 months of your average monthly living expenses saved away. 

I know very few people do this because I know how people behave.  So how does this help you right now? 

Well, hopefully it gets you to wake up and begin one right away. 

The next emergency will probably be different than this current situation but rest assured that it is coming.  It might be you getting laid off, it might be your spouse getting laid off, it might just give you the freedom to pursue a dream career, but I do know 100% that you will need it at some point. 

Figure out your monthly expenses and start by putting a few bucks in to build the momentum and then make it a regular part of your weekly credit. 

 

Trust me and thank me later J.
