focus (11)


Your Path is Your Path

Over the past few months, something has become even more abundantly clear to me than it was prior.  

We all have our own lessons and own path to walk in this life.  We are all here to experience life in a different way.  

My path is not worse or better than your path.  It’s just different.  

This means that we will not agree on a lot of stuff and that’s okay.  If you are here to learn algebra and I am here to learn biology 101, not too much will align.  It’s not supposed to.

Listen and learn from others.  You might get a different point of view to add to your path.

Afterall, the teacher will appear when the student is ready.

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 Must Focus on the 25%

A week and a half ago, after I got word that Governor Murphy was going to announce and be okay with the agreement they approached me with two days earlier, I made a video.

I rarely show tears of joy on video, but I couldn’t help it.

I wanted to share the news with the community and the people that were following the story.  Last I saw it had almost 15, 000 views and about a 100 shares, pretty amazing stuff.

Anyhow, friends and family informed me of the incoming haters that were trolling on the video.  But here’s what I told them…..

‘In life, 25% of the people are always going to love you, no matter what.  25% of people are going to strongly dislike you, even hate you, no matter what.  Then there are 25% that are going to not like you and then grow to like you and finally there are 25% that are going to like you and then not like you, for one reason or the other. I focus on the 25% that love me’. 

I believe too many people are focused on the 75% that won’t go into battle with you anyhow.  They  fall victim to the fear of being judged by them and therefore, hated on.

I don’t pay those people any mind, I don’t read their comments, I simply ‘let go of my end of the rope’.  The funny thing is, they are giving me their most valuable thing; their time and attention.  

Focus on your 25%, you may not agree on everything, but they will still always love you no matter what.

5 Takeaways from the Corona Situation

No matter what side of the fence you sit on with how to this Corona situation was handled (there’s actually a 3rd position that I will be speaking about in an upcoming podcast), there are 5 different takeaways we can all take from this.

In today’s episode, which was recorded early on in the chaos, I bring some posititivty and insight that still holds true, maybe even more so now that even then.

Take a listen and share it with a friend if you found it helpful.

Discover the Power of Your Relationships

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 about relationships….

In case you didn’t realize it before, it should be pretty obvious that we, as human beings, are social creatures.

When I do Mind Mapping lessons and sessions, I always teach about the mammalian part of the brain. 

This part of our brain is wired for connection and bonding.  It is also hyper-sensitive to judgment because of how much we crave to fit in with a tribe or pack. 

With all that is going on, many of the relationships that you cherish have been put on hold.  At least in terms of face to face interaction. 

I know, we can hop on Zoom or social media, but that is not nearly the same.  Yes, it’s better than nothing, but not the same.

Now, you have plenty of time to focus on those within your 4 walls.  You know, your spouse, your kids, the dogs. Those that mean everything to you but that we are normally too busy to actually give undivided focus to.  Well, NOW is that time. 

Where your attention goes, energy flows.  Put the damn phone down and listen and talk and laugh.  

Pick up the phone and reach out to someone that you don’t call often enough.  I know for me, this has been a blessing because I now talk to my mom a few times per week whereas in the past I wouldn’t make time for a phone call or I would wait until I heard from her. 

Write a letter.  Yes, handwritten.  It’s genuine and has a much different impact than email or text (there are studies that show how the brain actually lights up way differently when someone receives something physical in the mail rather than email). 

I just wrote my dad a cursive, one-page letter last week and it was awesome.  I got to tell him things I normally don’t tell him and he was greatly appreciative.  Taking the time to sit down and write and put it in a stamped envelope is one of the greatest investments you can make in any relationship. 

Don’t take your friendships for granted again.  EVER. It’s one thing to say that, but it’s another to act it out. 

The easiest thing to do when this is all said and done will be to revert back to the norm.  Don’t let it happen. 

Relationships are the spice of life, they are what make life worth living.

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:)




Monday Mindset: It Happens For You

I remember when I was heading under the knife for my second patellar tendon rupture in the span of 3 years.

Right before the lights went out, Dr. Gecha said, ‘Kyle, I am so, so sorry this happened again.  But I promise I’ll fix you up as good as new.’

To which I replied, in a drugged stupor, ‘It’s okay Doc, I got this.  It’ll allow me to help more people.’

I didn’t think much of it, but when I went in for my follow-up two weeks later, he asked me about that.  He couldn’t believe I didn’t have the victim mindset.  He even asked me if I would speak to his group of surgeons about mindset and mental strength.

You see, in life, you can either believe that things happen to you or that they happen for you.  It’s only the difference of 1 word, but its light years apart as far as mindset.

And the cool thing is that it’s up to you which one you choose to focus on….

Fax About Focus

I remember when I first read the line, ‘What you focus on expands.’

Bam!  It hit me square in the jaw.  So profound, yet so simple.

While you cannot control your thoughts, let alone anyone else’s thoughts, you can control what you focus on.

For a long time, I trained myself to be like the Terminator, in my own mind.  As soon as I felt an emotion I didn’t like, I would ‘clear the calculator to zero’ and direct my attention elsewhere.  That is both a good and a bad quality depending on the circumstance.

Yet, I knew that I had a choice in what I focused on.  Clearing of the calculator was not good when it comes to deep, human relationships.

Emotions are like lighter fluid for your focus.  Think about a time when a partner broke up with you.  You probably went through the gamut of ‘What if….’.  That is emotion + focus gone crazy.  Take those ‘what ifs’ and throw them out the window because they are an endless rabbit hole.

The ability to stay focused on the prize is one of the hardest things to do.  It requires that you constantly connect to why you are doing what you are doing.  It’s very easy to lose focus on the bright shiny new object.

Bright, shiny, new objects and unchained emotion are the two things you must be on guard for when it comes to remaining focused on the right things.  The goal is to keep the goal, the goal.

Where is Your Focus?

Ever since I was a little boy, I struggled with finding the balance in life because once I set my mind upon a thing, it was all I would focus on.

Yes, I had what would be called laser like focus.  It can be great but then again, all weaknesses will come from a strength.

Yet, in life, focus is paramount to your energy levels and staying the course.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I shine the light on where your focus is and how you can adjust it.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

The Anti-Resolution Plan

 

While at a party the other day, someone said to me, ‘I am done with making resolutions!  They never work and they only ever make me feel like a loser.’

 

She was right, they don’t work.

 

Resolutions are usually made on a whim and they are usually based on an extreme amount of willpower that mere mortals don’t normally possess.

 

Think about what resolution means.  It means to resolve a problem.

 

A problem has a solution.

 

A solution is a plan.

 

The reason resolutions don’t work is because there is no plan of action.  Saying you want to do something is meaningless.

 

Action is where it’s at.

 

And if your undertaking is something you are dreading, you are doomed to fail.  You don’t transform your life by doing something you despise.

 

The anti-resolution program is to do it differently than everyone else.

 

You focus on habits and systems and you don’t do anything that involves boatloads of will power.

 

The anti-resolution plan means creating a map ahead of time.

 

Planning is one of the most important things you can do, a quadrant 2 activity.

 

Plan for success – Kyle Newell
