Life (112)


Where Will You Be In 23,000 days?

Almost a year ago, we gathered to celebrate my grandparents 70th anniversary.

Amazing!

If Devon and I are fortunate enough to even live that long, we will celebrate our 70th in about 23,000 days!

It’s mind boggling to think about the commitment required for anything to stay focused for that long: a calling, a career, a relationship, a life…

My grandparents are a part of the greatest generation.  They were taught never to give up and to be resilient.

Resilience will take you all the way to the top, especially in the microwave world we now live in.

Listen, it’s easy to feel like you should throw in the towel when you start stretching your comfort zone.  But if you give into that feeling, you’ll never grow.

Be resilient, put one foot in front of the other and see what happens.

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.

Here’s How He Did It

One month 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!

I was looking at Devon we both shrugged in amazement.

My expectations were clearly different than Braxtons.

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….

Today is Devon’s Due Date

Well, today is the day. That is, assuming the baby didn’t come early. But I don’t know that as of the time of this writing.

Either way, life will change.

And change is the one thing people fear most, yet it is the one constant in life.

People tell us, #3 is a real game changer. Yes, I am sure it will be, but so was #1 and #2.

All changes in life revolve around relationships when you actually think about it. A new baby, a new marriage, a new colleague, a new client, a new relationship with yourself.

Embrace the change. It’s coming at you either way.

And as far as the baby, I’ll be sure to post something up on social media with name, gender, etc.:)

Feed Your Stallions, Starve Your Ponies

One of the keys to success in life is to figure out what your strengths are, otherwise known as your unique ability.

We all have at least one, but most of us spend very little time putting it to good use.

In today’s episode, I talk about figuring this ability out and why you owe it to yourself to figure it out.

Health is Simple

I recall a presentation that I gave to the teachers of Bridgewater-Raritan school district 10 years or so ago.

At the time, I was still teaching there.

I was asked to present to the BREA on nutrition.

Well, one of the ladies had a question about why she always struggling with diet and exercise.

I told her it was a matter of discipline, a terrible answer and something my young, dumber self believed. I was nothing else if not blunt with her. Hey, we all make mistakes and that was a huge mistake of mine, the way I handled it.

Yet, the point I was trying to get across (I just didn’t understand the brain yet), was that health was simple.

I didn’t say easy, making change in life is one of the hardest things in the world to do.

But once you decide and cut yourself off from all other options, the process is simple.

Move, sweat, eat foods with less than 5 ingredients, drink water and get enough sleep.

How’s that?

The real issue is in first figuring out what is blocking you from taking the first step, and that my friend, is where Mind Mapping comes in to play.

How To Create Unstoppable Momentum

The most powerful force in nature is momentum.

Think of a massive tidal wave or rogue wave and the destruction it can cause.  Once it builds and gains momentum, there is no stopping it.

Think of an avalanche…

Ok, you get the picture.

So, how can you create unstoppable momentum in life?  Because I got news for you, momentum is showing up and acting in your life right now, and it’s either working for you or against you.

In today’s episode, I discuss how you can create unstoppable momentum.  You can take a listen to the 12 minute episode here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/07/08/How-to-Create-Unstoppable-Momentum

Things Don’t Happen to You, They Happen for You

I just finished writing another entry in the book to Braxton and Colton.

The message was that things don’t happen to you, they happen for you.

The quality of your life will come down to the quality of the questions you ask.

The quality of the questions you ask is your ability to reframe any situation.

When things happen to you, you are the victim.

When you believe that everything happens for you, you are the VICTOR!

Happy 4th of July!

Hopefully you have a nice day and weekend planned with some loved ones.

And I don’t want to interrupt that, so just a quick note today…

Enjoy your freedom in all aspects of life.

Freedom is a key ingredient to happiness.

We are lucky to be alive and thriving during this time in history, despite what the media will have you believe.

Raise a cup of beer or water today and say cheers to yourself and your great country that you and I both call home.

I am happy to have you as a part of my life:)

What is Your Life?

I remember going outside on a foggy afternoon, way back when I was 9 or so, to see what it felt like to be in ‘heaven’.

My understanding of life was limited, as is any 9 year old’s perspective. But in some ways, it is more pure than when we become adults.

Some of the happiest memories of my life are from when I was a young boy.

The summers of fun playing baseball, stick ball, pool parties, sleep overs, birthday parties.

That was the life.

That is life.

What is your life? When you break it down, it’s nothing more than a collection of memories and experiences. This moment, this minute, this is what you’ve got.

Life can be as magical as you want it to be.

The secret is in being grateful each and every day. An attitude of gratitude brings more and more to be grateful for.

But stop waiting for ‘life’. It’s right here, right now, enjoy it.

I thought that since this was on my mind, it was somehow on your mind too. Start your week off right.
