How Do You Challenge Yourself?

When you are a student of life and you sit back and observe human nature, you will notice that most people choose not to challenge themselves.

We accept it because it’s just what the majority of people do.

The people that do challenge themselves and make things harder on themselves are the ones that stand out.

I remember when I was 8 and 9 years old, playing Little League Baseball.

My parents doctored my birth certificate so I would play up a level in age.  What?

Well, that made it harder for me.  They wanted to challenge me and it worked.  To most people, you’d think of lowering your age to make it easier.

Are you used to taking the path of least resistance?

If so, how can you challenge yourself this week to go head first into the area of greatest resistance?

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

Mental Toughness Monday: I Challenge You

A week ago, when I was going for my Monday morning weighted vest walk, I was pondering what to talk about in my Monday video.  

Sometimes toughness can be taught and conveyed as force and pushing yourself.  Sometimes that is appropriate. 

Then there are times when toughness is simply choosing the path less traveled. 

I challenge you this week to have a focal point for your attention when you start getting caught up in the fear and divisiveness that seems to be around every corner during these trying times.

I want that focal point to be something positive, something you have control over, someone you love, something you are grateful for. 

How is that toughness?  Because, your thoughts are a habit.  Habits are hard to override, especially thoughts, because our brain is hardwired for the negative, it’s a survival mechanism.  

So that’s my challenge to you this week.  Focus on something great in life everytime the fear goblin tries to rear his ugly head.

You Have 2 Choices

11 years ago, I almost through in the towel (more than once) on Newell Strength.

You see, at the time, I was running myself ragged, teaching full time, getting my Master’s degree and getting the business going.

Building anything requires tremendous energy. Let me repeat, to create anything requires a tremendous amount of energy.

But, when you are split between so many things, energy is often running low.

I had two options, either quit, or lower my expectations. Actually, I was unwilling to do either, which led me to a third hidden option: working on my mind set.

Quitting would lead to the pain of regret and lowering my expectations would just lead me to being average.

However, realize, those two options are always on the table for you. And sometimes, just knowing that, is enough to keep you moving forward. You’ll have to think this one over I imagine 🙂 The logic is below the surface.

Should You Let Go of Expectations?

I remember all the way back to when I was 7 years old and I began to ponder life and death, mainly death.

In fact, I became obsessed with the philosophical implications that death brought up.  I used to cry every single day after school 2901to my mom because I couldn’t comprehend it.

Point being, I have always pondered the unanswerable questions of life.

Which brings me to expectations.

Should we have expectations?

In my opinion, not if they lay out in the future and not if they are dependent on some other source for the outcome to meet your ‘expectations’.

All disappoint in life will come from some expectation that isn’t met.

Expectations as most think of them lay out in the future.  Which means expectations raise anxiety and fear levels because there is a lack of accurate patterns out in the future.

How about letting go of all expectations except for being present in the moment with whatever it is you are currently doing?  Expect to follow a process, that’s about it.

The $50 Burger

Have you ever had a $50 burger?

Well, I have, and let me tell you, it was damn good!

Was it the expectations that made it taste better?  Sure, that’s part of it.

Was it the quality of the meat?  You bet.

Was it the superior experience and service?  Yup, that’s part of what you are paying for.

In fitness, you can’t get the $50 burger while paying the price of a Mickey D’s ¼ pounder.

I can’t tell you how to invest your money, but I can tell you that Newell Strength is the $50 burger.

There’s a lot more that goes into it than the training (although, we are the best at that too, by a long shot).

Just some food for thought.
