Life (90)


Member Showcase: Action Jackson

Action Jackson gets everyone inspired and pumped up.

His love for training and life comes through in every conversation he has.

Which is why I thought it a great thing to showcase AJ as people strive to get into better shape for the coming summer.

Go All In

5 weeks ago, I recorded this episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength.

 

Is it a coincidence that yesterday I wrote about the brevity of life?

 

And I wrote that before looking ahead to which episode was going to be released today.

 

But no, I don’t think it’s a coincidence.  Use it is a sign on your path that there is more waiting for you to ‘go after’ in life.

 

In today’s episode, I discuss the concept of ‘going all in’ in my view.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/podcast/episode-148-go-all-in/

 

Take a quick listen to the roughly 11-minute episode and jot down 1 thing that you can put to use.

The Average American Lives Only…

A few weeks ago, I wrote a letter to the boys about how many remaining days I had left based on projections.

 

The average American lives 28,470 days and chances are, if you are reading this, you are probably at, near or past the halfway point.

 

No, it’s not morbid to think about.

 

You must live with some sense of urgency.  In fact, today is Suzy’s birthday (aka Devon), which marks the passage of another year for her.

 

Something I’ve challenged Suzy to do is to make a list of 12 habits for this next year and implement one per month.  In essence, she will stack monthly habits on top of the previous month, leaving her with 12 new behaviors come next April Fool’s Day.

 

Now, imagine if she did this each year.  Heck, imagine if you did this each year!  In ten years, you’d have 120 new habits that can dramatically alter the course of your life!

 

Life is about growth.

 

Growth makes us happy.

 

Therefore, life is about being in a state of happiness as much as possible.

 

Start making that list.

The Real Secret of Life

4 year ago, at a conference, I heard an Alan Watts video for the first time.

And my mind was blown.

In fact, I still listen to the 2 minute video every day.

Here is a snippet from that speech:

“This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” -Alan Watts

Life is a game and games are meant to be played.

Ponder this today.

Empty Your Mug

A few weeks ago I recorded this podcast and funny enough, it is right in line with what I was writing to you about yesterday.

In life, you must have principles that you live by.

Otherwise life will toss you whichever way it wants, like a plastic bag out on the street on a windy day.

‘Emptying the mug’ is one of the principles that I live by.

In today’s episode, I give you a few pointers on how and why I believe you should be practicing this.

The Slight Edge

One of the main philosophies that I live by in life is the concept of the slight edge.

Get a little bit better an inch at a time.

When you combine the mindset of the slight edge thinking with consistency, life transforms and you can control your destiny.

In today’s episode, I cover this concept of the slight edge.  You can take a listen here: http://kylenewell.com/podcast/why-i-practice-the-slight-edge/

What Does Your Sunday Night Look Like?

Don’t worry, I am not asking you to give up your Sunday night for a hangout.

Nope, I am usually holed up on a Sunday night with Devon.

Yet, if you are like most people, you may get the frequent ‘Sunday Night Blues Syndrome’.

That’s when you feel a dip in energy, a feeling of dread and a sadness because your weekend is over.

How about you make this Sunday night different.  Plan out your week, write down 3 things that you love in your life, 3 great memories you’ve had and why this coming week is going to be great.

Life is the story you are telling yourself about ‘it’.

Your mental fitness is just as important (in my opinion, more important than) your physical fitness.

The Compass of Your Life

Last Friday, I had a call with a friend about whether she should go all in on her own fitness studio.

After making sure the numbers made sense, I asked which way she was facing more resistance.

She replied that it was definitely towards going out on her own.

Well then, that’s the way you must go.

Part of what makes life so cool is that we don’t know exactly what’s going to happen.  I mean, think about it, what if you knew every single thing that was going to happen to you before it happened?  Life would be a drag.

With that in mind, one of the points on my compass in life, True North if you will, is figuring out which way there is more resistance and going that way.  Resistance never shows up when you are trying to regress, only when you are trying to grow.

The Action of a Panda

4 years ago, I got a tattoo of a ying-yang panda on my wrist.

To me, it represented duality, fierceness with tenderness.

It happens to fit for me and it is part of my philosophy of life.

In today’s episode, I discuss the action of a panda, and I think there will be one or two things within here that you find useful.

Wax On, Wax Off

I remember watching the Karate Kid back in the mid 80’s when we lived in Michigan.

At that age, I was more pumped about the fighting and kicking butt that Daniel displayed.

As I got older, I realized there was a lot more to the movie, which is part of why it became a legendary movie.  There were lessons for any age group in it.

Mr. Miyagi, the ever-wise teacher, is what resonates most with me now.

We all need a Mr. Miyagi in our life.  Someone that can see things from a different perspective.

And, teach us.

Yet, a Mr. Miyagi will only appear when you, the student, are ready.

However, beware of the Mr. Miyagi that goes around giving unwarranted advice.  This means that you aren’t ready, if you haven’t asked and that this fake Mr. Miyagi, doesn’t understand true teaching.

Somethings to think about.  (And if you are looking for a whole team of Mr. Miyagis, then you should try us out at Newell Strength).
