Expect to Suck at First

Two weekends ago, Tank performed in his first race at BMX.  

 

It was an awesome and exciting moment for us as we’ve been coaxing him to ride a bike but didn’t want to force him.

 

Braxton was riding before he was two but again, a different path, a different person.

 

Now, Colty did great, even won two of the 3 races and picked it up really quick.  

 

As a youngster, he can pick stuff up much quicker than an adult as the nervous system is still developing and there isn’t as much fear of failure or fear of judgment.  

 

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn something new.  It’s just that you have to expect to suck at it at first.  When I teach people the mallet drill, I instruct them to just tap and catch.

 

Forget about getting 100 hits in a row or even 2 in a row, just tap and catch.  

 

I’ve been doing drills with my toes and feet and I am absolutely terrible at, but I know each day, I get a fraction of a bit better, which is exciting.

 

Break down the skill you are learning until you feel good about that tiny fraction of a skill and go from there.

Stop Kidding Yourself

3 weeks ago, in our weekly Saturday morning workout, I wrote a quote on the board for the crew, which I rarely ever do.  

 

‘Keep your mind open to everything and closed to nothing’. 

 

I didn’t erase it, in fact, I still think it’s up on the board. 

 

Anyhow, during the next week, long time client and friend, Manny, came in with his wife Sandy and said, ‘I was just at HomeGoods and I thought of you!’  

 

He went on to tell me that he walked by one of the picture frames in the store and in that frame, there was a quote, the exact quote that I wrote on the board!!! (See below)

You can brush stuff off like this is coincidence or you can look at it as energy and a frequency trying to get your attention and affirm the path you are on.

 

I choose the latter.

 




Scrawnier Yet More Powerful

20 years or so ago,back in my frat days in college, I topped the scales at 260.

I was the strongest dude around campus.  Looking back, I was a bit on the fat side. 

You see, from the get go, I wanted to be big and muscular.  Arnold was my idol.

And then I got into competing and wanting to see how far I could take my physical appearance.  

 

While I learned a lot and wouldn’t trade those experiences for the world, it was a shallow perspective.  For a good while, that drive to look a certain way was driven by insecurity.

 

Now, I was to be the scrawniest I can be, within my set point, yet I am able to have more impact and influence (power) over those in my sphere.

 

As my muscles have shrunk, my mindset and spirit have grown.

 

I don’t want to have to take up physical space, rather, I would want someone in the same room as me to feel my positive vibrational energy.  

 

Point being, be fluid.  As time goes one, let go.  Don’t be married to an ideal.

Turns Out I was Right All Along

Two weekends ago, I finished a book called the Circadian Code, which was authored by, ironically, Dr. Panda.  

 

Some of the book was rudimentary, but as I got to the end there were about 10 pages of cool research that validated stuff I’ve been teaching in the Panda Program.  Yes, this is the best eating system in the world if your goal is energy and permanent weight loss, but it’s nice to see my philosophy validated by a fellow expert’s book.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about some of the stuff that was within those 10 pages.

 

You can take a listen here:

Emma is a Rockstar

About 2 weeks ago, I had Emma on one of my life weekly videos because that’s just the way things shook out.  

And although I thought the message was on point, Emma stole the show.  People kept commenting on her and how precious she was.  

Maybe just seeing Emma that day was all that people needed.  Seeing her smile with her big baby eyes is enough to make anyone smile, ear to ear.  

A buddy of mine actually pulled me aside the next day to thank me about the video, nothing to do with Emma, but the words.  It completely turned around a funk he was going through and after listening for the 3 minutes, he went inside and gave his wife a big hug and the funk was no more.

 

Every message means different things to different people.  

 

Take what is useful and discard the rest.

People Were Shocked that I did This

About 2 weeks ago, I put up a post about a coffee enema I was about to do.   

And despite that prodding from some of my buddies, I saved everyone and just put up a photo and didn’t do it ‘live’.

To me, it was an opportunity to learn through application to myself so that I could speak on and teach on it.  

Yet, I was a bit surprised about the concern I received via messages that night.  People were very worried about me, ha!  

I ensured them that this was a choice and I indeed was fine.  

 

For the finale of my liver flush a few days prior, I had to do one more enema to make sure my colon was all clean and fresh.  I had did a little research about coffee enemas and said what the heck, I had to do an enema anyhow, mind as well make it a coffee enema.

 

A coffee enema will greatly stimulate glutathione in the liver, which is a master detoxifier which binds to toxins and flushes them out of the body.

 

I will be teaching more on this as time goes on and the liver flush will be a part of the Panda Challenge #4 (coffee enema optional:)).  

 

The quickest way to learn something is to try it and then teach it and research it more as you continue on.

Change is the Only Constant in Your Life

About 12 years ago, I learned from my Coach, Scott Abel, at the time, that the one thing people fear most is change, yet change is the only constant in life.  

 

Isn’t that ironic?

 

Yet, it’s important for you to remember that the change isn’t random, it’s driven. 

 

Everything that happens in the universe follows the law of cause and effect.  Nothing escapes this law.

 

Take a listen to today’s episode to gain a deeper understanding of how this can empower you.

Here’s How He Did It

A little over a year ago, roughly, right before I was about to take Braxton to martial arts, I decided I would take off his training wheels on his big boy bike.

It is something that I had wanted to do for a while and I thought we could at least start the process for 30 minutes or so.  

So, he and I go down to the garage and take off the trainers and head back up to the cul de sac.

I helped him get on and start running with him while holding the back of the seat for about 5 seconds and then I let go and boom, he nailed it on his first try, he just took off!

Devon and I both shrugged in amazement.

My expectations were clearly different than Braxton’s.   

What’s the point?  Well, as adults, we often expect things to be too hard or that they have to take a certain amount of time.  They don’t.

And, sometimes, as humans, we are just a natural at certain things.  In other things, not so much.  

Time for self evaluation….

It Takes a Village to Mold a Mind

Two weeks ago today, we went down the shore with the kids to celebrate our actual anniversary date.  

 

Our good friends, Cynthia and Louie, took us out clamming.

 

It was a first for me and my family.  

I watched as Braxton took it all in.  Anytime he was curious, I would tell him to go ask Louie why or what he was doing.  

 

That way he could learn.  

 

This process went on all day and all the way through the point when we ate the clams for dinner.

 

Just like yesterday’s email, it’s about listening, learning and learning by asking questions.  When we converse with the world, we get to organize our thoughts.  And if you only converse with a small number of people, you have a limited world view.

 

It takes a village to organize a young mind, or any mind for that matter.  ?And much of what you learn through talking to others is based upon their body language and reactions, rather than what they have to say in response (although that is important too).

 

There have been many great therapists that have said minimal words in counseling questions, rather, they’d just sit there, and let the client organize their thoughts as they talked through it to another person (the therapist).  

 

When you start looking at interactions and conversations this way, the world becomes much more magical.

Yes, Emma Eats Rocks

A few weekends ago, we took the kids down to the river behind the house to swim around and play.  

I was on Emma duty as Devon explored with Brax, Tank, Mateen and Dax.

And as I had Emma sitting in the shallows, feeling the current, she would reach down, pull up a rock and then hand it to me and then laugh.  Every few rocks she would taste and then spit out.

 

What?!  

 

I learned from one of my brain books long ago that infants and the very young, learn a lot by putting everything in or near their mouth.  This is the area of their body with the most developed sensory nerve endings.  

 

Plus, she builds her immune system, just as the boys have done, and it worked for them.  I believe I remember each of them only being sick just once.

 

Yes, at the Newell house, they still drink out of hoses, have dirt constantly on their hands and run around barefoot.  

 

Every now and then one of them gets stung by some critter but Devon and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

 

Freedom to explore or freedom from having to explore.

 

It’s all exploration and it’s all up the individual parent.  You don’t have to be just like everyone else.  That’s the beauty and the spice of life.
