Happiness (8)


What Are You Waiting For?

8 years ago, I made the very tough decision to resign from my comfortable, fun job as a physical education teacher.  

 

There’s a whole bunch that went into that decision, but what I want to discuss today is the tough time I went through when I was FREE and able to work all day before heading into Newell Strength.

 

I thought that my schedule would be fantastic, I would have 8 hours or so of open time to create and work on the business.  Well, that quickly turned into 4 hours and even then, it took me quite some time to figure out how to manage myself. 

 

One of the hardest things to do as far as your ‘art’, is actually sitting down to do it.  The creative process isn’t the hard part, it’s carving out the time to plop your behind in the chair.  

 

You want to create something, you have some passion, I know you do because otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this.

 

Sit down, map out each step that needs to happen and then take the smallest possible step towards your creation, preferably today, if not, then at some point this week.

 

Don’t allow ideas to just bounce around in your head.  Put pen to paper.

Once Your Mindset Expands…

I was incredibly fortunate a year ago to be able to hire Matt Furey as my personal success Coach.  This is a cat that is super modest, despite his extreme success.

In fact, people don’t know this, but Tony Robbins has paid him a few times to come and do a consult (I always wondered who the masters went to as their teachers).

Everytime we have a Coaching call, he expands my way of thinking.  So funny enough, he actually brought this up on our call last week.  

He said, ‘Kyle, once the mind expands to new realities and possibilities it can never go back’.  And how right he is!

The problem is that most people don’t let their minds expand because they get stuck in a rut with their way of thinking.  

Once you know what’s possible, why would you settle for anything less?  When I see someone use a weight in the gym that they’ve never used before, I will tell them, ‘Awesome job!  Now you can’t ever go back, you now know what your new capabilities are’.  

 

In which area does your mind need to expand?

How Long Can You Hold Your Focus For?

Two weekends ago, Devon was away on a much deserved girls weekend, which meant I was blessed with the chance to really be 100 percent dialed in with the kids.

It’s easy somehow to not be present all the way when there are two of you there.

Anyhow, I decided I was going to teach the boys how to focus sunlight through a magnifying glass onto a leaf to create fire.  

Now, we didn’t actually start a fire, but I did want them to see the leaf smoke and burn a hole.  

When Brax was doing it, he was wanting to make the ray of light bigger and he kept wanting move it around, to which I explained that it would never catch if he was doing that.

The light had to be focused to the size of a pinhead and it had to hold its position.

This is like your mind.  

If you can hold your focus and attention, day after day, on that which you want to become, you will have success.

If you are easily distracted, then you will only be successful at becoming distracted.

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).

5 Great Things That Have Come About Since Quarantine Began

Apparently, one of the haters from yesterday’s email had his panties in a bunch a few weeks back because I said that the week was the most amazing week of my life.

This Tool Boy just couldn’t comprehend that I could be having an amazing week despite all the doom and gloom in the news.

Listen, life is always going to be full of death and destruction.  That’s how life is.  If you focus on it, you are going to live a miserable existence.  Struggling is mandatory, suffering is a choice.

With that, I feel terrible for anyone that lost a loved one due to the virus and I feel terrible for all those struggling because of the lockdowns.  

But I bet you if you took the time and made a list, you’d be able to come up with some great things that have come out of this time.  

 

Here are 5 of mine:

 

1- I made some great new with local and county authorities.

2- Newell Strength was able to give some normalcy back to our clients, staff and community. 

3- I was able to help 25 clients totally transform their way of life and their minds through our first 2 Panda Challenge groups. 

4- I made one great new friend that was with me every step of the way through the ordeals of the week of 5.18.

5- I was able to go into ‘battle’ with my grandfather, Leo, the WW2 vet I always speak of and we were able to speak on stage at an event down the shore.

 

The list could keep going, but the point is to have you realize that great things happen all the time, it’s up to you if you choose to focus on them.

Can You Handle Boredom?

‘Most people can’t handle boredom. That means they can’t stay on one thing until they get good at it.  And then they wonder why they’re unhappy.’ -50

 

Most people aren’t aware that the brain loves growth.  Growth and challenge lead to happiness.

 

But you can’t really grow if you can’t stay focused.

 

You can be a ‘hopper’ but that will lever lead to deeper levels of happiness.

 

Focus on the grass right under your feet.

Idaho in New Jersey

3 years ago, Devon, Munchie and I took a vacation out to Wyoming and Idaho.

A lot of people  know this but a lot don’t know this; when we took that trip, it was booked with the idea of going out there to scout out because we thought we were going to move there.

It was really nothing more than escapism on my part.

The things we thought we could only find on the other side of the country were right here.

We found and moved into a house on the water.

But more importantly, we realized that happiness isn’t a foreign destination.

Your mind will play tricks on you and try to get you to think that you can only be happy when (you fill in the blank).

Happiness comes from freedom, play and growth.

Wherever you go, there you are.

Have You Happiness?

Ever since I was a little boy, I wondered what the purpose of life was.

As I got older, I realized that happiness is the main driver of life.  And it’s not as simple as telling you to just think positive thoughts.

In today’s episode, I discuss happiness, what it is, where it comes from and how you can increase your level of it.

Take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/
