You Need to Take a Deep Breathe with Me

Sometimes we need to hit the pause button.

In today’s episode, I encourage you to take a deep breath with me and observe.  

Breathing is key to being present.

Being present is the key to living.

Stay Hungry

Do you remember where you were a month ago?

You know, right when this whole thing was just starting out?  

If you were like most, you were probably trying to get your mind around how to adjust to the new normal. 

Well, that time has come and gone.  

And fortunately this is coming to an end, despite what the ‘fear mongering media’ wants us to believe.  

Come Memorial Day, people are going to be able to look around and say, ‘Damn, that person made the most of their quarantine!’ or, ‘Looks like he/she sat around and binge watched while eating a bit too much ice cream…’.

Stay hungry my friend.  If you’ve been dragging or if you have been getting after it, stay hungry.  

Now is the perfect time to challenge yourself and push yourself.  

A little reminder to stay hungry never gets old.

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:) 

 

2-I am opening the doors to the second Panda Challenge, which will be starting within the next 3 weeks.  The first 12 ‘Panda’s’ are crushing it and dare I say, all 12 are on track to hit their 45-day goals! Yes, I only take 12 because of the high level of Coaching each client receives.  5 of the spots are already taken from people that just missed the cut for the first Panda Challenge. If you’d like to find out more info and at least throw your name in the ring for me to decide if you’re a good fit, then go here: https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/step_1




When to Speed Up and When to Slow Down

As humans, we crave patterns, which is even more important right now.  When routine is lost, it is easy to get into bad habits.  

With week 2 of the Corona upon us, we need to address this coming week with discipline. 

Also, in this video, I discuss the concept of slowing down and speeding up, depending on where you are feeling threatened right now.

The Amazing Story of Roger Bannister

Roger wanted to be a doctor, and he went to medical school in England.

 

He also had another goal.

 

He wanted to be a star runner, but when you go to medical school, you go to school all day and you study all night.

 

But he still had this goal of being a champion runner and doing something that nobody else did.

 

Every day he would cut a different class, and he would meet his college track coach, because of course, medical schools didn’t have track teams.

 

He would meet his track coach at a track, and he would train, but since he was in school, he only had 40-45 minutes every day to train.

 

He only trained 40-45 minutes every single day, and he’d go back to school, and Roger Bannister, on May 6, 1954, became the first person to run the mile in under 4 minutes.

 

This story takes place way back in the early 50s when Roger Bannister was hoping to become the first person to run the 4-minute mile.

 

There were two other groups of people, and I said groups, that were trying to break the 4-minute mile.

 

A guy in Australia named John Landy, had a whole team of people. He had money and people.

 

He had massage therapists. He had nutritionists.

 

He had trainers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 

He was living his life in training to break the 4-minute mile.

 

Then there was another group in Kansas and a guy named Wes Santee, and he had a group of people, nutritionists and physiologists.

 

He was training, too, but the guy that did it first was Roger Bannister.

 

A few weeks after Bannister broke the record, John Landy broke the record.

 

When people talk about this, they say the record was more psychological than physiological.

 

Roger Bannister is one of the more amazing people ever to live.

 

One of my friends had a neurology book on their shelf that was written by Sir Roger Bannister.  Yes, the same Roger Bannister.

 

He was knighted twice; once as an athlete and once as a neurologist.

 

This guy is an amazing, amazing person.

 

In those 45-minute training sessions, do you know what he did for this training?

 

Well, I can tell you a few things he did.

 

It’s not how much time you put in it.

 

It’s what do you put into the time? He was totally engaged.

 

They’ve done some interesting studies.

 

Well, these studies are pretty old, but on football players.

 

Now football is a fall sport, and college football players usually get better grades in the fall than they do in the spring.

 

They say if you want to get something done, ask a busy person.

 

Football players are busier in the fall than they are in the spring, but they get better grades in the fall.

 

Bannister had so many other things going on, so when he was at the track, he didn’t have any time to waste.

 

He was totally, totally, totally engaged.

 

Focus on your ONE thing to the exclusion of all other things when you supposed to be locked into that ONE thing.

 

Here is your Sunday article that I wrote for you, enjoy!
