Life (226)


Free Fear or Freedom Over Fear?

When I was 7, I had the stark reality of a childhood friend dying.  It was almost too much for me to comprehend and it put me into a hyperfocus on death for the next several years.

But believe it or not, I think that this gave me a big advantage in life.  

For one, I live with urgency, because I know life is not infinite, at least this ‘5-sense’ reality isn’t.  Now, I don’t live with urgency in the sense that I am hurried, I live with urgency in that I want to experience a lot and achieve my mission.

Secondly, I have been able to connect the dots with death to my mastery of Mind Mapping and I realize that although fear is a real feeling, I can usually tamp it down until the point of acting in the face of it and not backing down when it wants to look me in the eyes. 

The mainstream media sells you ‘free fear’.  They know the brain is hyper focused on all things fear so it drives ratings.  The question is, are you going to choose free fear or freedom over fear?

It’s a matter of focus and attention.

P.S-My new book is finally out on Amazon.  It’s all things fasting, from my point of view.  If you want a world class tutorial and ‘how to’ with my system of fasting, then you pick up a copy of  the book.  And if you like it, please leave a review.  https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Diet-Unconventional-Approach-Lasting/dp/0578687372/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kyle+newell&qid=1592831921&s=books&sr=1-2

P.P.S-Now that we are taking new clients once again, we are opening the doors for July to 12 new trial members.  This is just what the doctor ordered for you if you’ve been locked in, with little outdoor time, not enough physical activity and not enough fun.  You can apply for a spot at this link and Coach Dana will be reaching out to you.  https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/jumpstart




Most People at 25 and are Buried by 75

A week ago, I heard the same message twice within the span of an hour, which means I was being spoken to by the Universe.

The first message was from some random video on YouTube during my walk and the second was from a written excerpt from a MLK speech.

The gist: If you have a calling at 38, as Dr. King did, and refused to do anything about it, yet you live until you’re 90, you really died at 38.  

Life is a gift and with that gift you have gifts that you are supposed to share.  

Is it scary?  Yes.  But if you share gifts despite what you think others may think (ego and reputation) and you listen to your gut, then you are truly living.

What have you been holding back on that keeps yanking at your heart string?

It’s Time For You to Look the Dragon in the Eye

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I discuss the concept of examining your true fears, looking the dragon in the eye and not backing down.

The thought process in this episode is interesting as it was pretty much when I decided we were going to open the gym on 5/18, despite the fear on multiple levels.

P.S-I am taking people for the next Panda Challenge, it begins June 22nd.  Based on the first two challenges, the average inches lost around the waist in just 45 days is 3”!!!! If you are interested in one of the remaining 7 spots, go here: https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/panda_diet

 

P.P.S-After much consideration, we are pushing our Fat Shredder to September.  We will be able to run it better and people will be ready for it.  We don’t want anyone to miss out.  Details will come out as it gets closer.  




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.

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.

Up and Down, Chaos and Peace

Two weeks ago began the most amazing and emotional week of my life. 

I had made a video to give people hope on a Tuesday night about our choice to open Newell Strength. 

Within a few hours it had almost 10K views.

Fox News reached out the next day and it was on.

My intention for opening Newell Strength was more about hope than anything. If was just about opening up for business, the easier thing would have been to stay closed.

Saturday I had the interview on national television which was surreal. Then the rest of the weekend was up and down, not being sure what to expect on Monday afternoon when we opened. 

Monday was full of talking with reporters and such during the early part of the day and listening to other people tell me how the scene was unfolding at Newell Strength. I wasn’t planning on going in until [2:30] or so for our 4 PM opening. 

Driving in was wild because I had no idea what to expect from all the different things I was hearing. 

I was listening to ‘Born in the USA’ by Bruce as I pulled in for parking. 

I walked in, noticed there was already a crowd gathering, opened the bay doors and began to play patriotic music. 

To be continued tomorrow…..

The Best Advice Ever

When the kids are older, I hope I can  be a source of guidance and wisdom for them.  

I  know sometimes they will just need me to listen.

And I know other times, they will need a nudge.

The best advice I will ever be able to offer, without even knowing the circumstance, will be to simply begin.  Take action.  Take action towards your inner wisdom and gut feeling.

If you wait too long to begin, that inner spark of inspiration will be gone and you will  have missed your opportunity.   

Simply begin…..

Time to Get High On Your Own Supply

20 plus years ago, when I was a junior and senior in high school, I would work out before the school day started.

It was unusual at the time for a young high school kid to wake up and workout at that time but it made me feel good.

My mind would be on fire in a good way and I would enter the school day with a lot of confidence, which was big for me because I was a shy, introverted kid. 

I didn’t know then what I know now, but the reason I felt so good working out first thing was because there are certain growth factors and brain chemicals that can only get to your brain through physical movement.  

This is how you can get high on your own supply.  And better  yet, when it’s nice and sunny out, get out there and do some type of physical activity in the sunshine.  Vitamin D from the sun is potent as a feel good hormone when combined with physical activity (even when you are just exposed to sunlight you will feel better).  

 

Essentially, you are your own drug dealer.
