What Temperature is Your Thermostat Set At?

Growing up, we rarely had the AC on nor did the heat ever really go up about 62 degrees (unless we had company coming over).

Were my parents trying to toughen us up? Maybe, but the real reason is that they had 4 boys to feed and take care of and if they could cut down a little on expenses by having an extra layer or two on, then great!

They were able to put all 4 of us through college!

Now, what would happen if I messed with thermostat when I was a boy and started opening windows in the winter time? If the thermostat was set to 62, it would drop temporarily and then get back to 62.

Well, we work the same way psychologically. You will never advance past your self-identity or where your internal thermostat is set to. Can that change? For sure, but it takes work and changing your beliefs.

My Idea Worked Until it Didn’t

Devon and I have been having this battle with Mateena for the past few months.  Every time we go out now, Mateena takes out the garbage and makes a mess.

Now, our garbage can in the kitchen is on a slider behind two doors, not easy for a dog to get in to. And we tried all the cheapo dog safety locks on Amazon which Mateena discards and bypasses with ease.

So I had an idea, I was going to by a small chain and lock it up each time we went out.  Much to my pleasant surprise, while at Lowe’s, I found a ‘u-lock’ that was even simpler and would no doubt do the trick.

That was on a Sunday, on that Monday I dropped Munchie off at school, testing out my contraption.  The good news is that the u-lock was in tact when I got back.  The bad news was that it was attached to part of the cabinet door that Mateena somehow snapped off.

Geez!

It was a good thought, but I didn’t think all the way through the consequences.  Remember: what’s the worst that can happen and are you willing to live with that should it happen?

Kyle Newell’s Rules

Way back in 2006, I had it burned into my brain that I needed to have a firm set of rules that would dictate my decisions in life.

I didn’t want to be a piece of seaweed getting tossed every which way, depending on the tide.  Nope, I wanted to have an anchor so I could be firmly rooted.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I go over 3 of my key rules in life: protecting your time, putting your own energy first and having fun.

You can take a listen to the episode here:  http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

Take what is useful to you and discard the rest.

How to Master Your Time, Take 2

Just the other week, Coach Dan from Newell Strength told me had just listened to one of the first podcasts that I ever recorded on time and energy management.

The message was loud and clear because just a little bit earlier that morning I was thinking I should record a newer version of that same topic.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I give you the secrets of how I manage my energy and time in the hopes of you being able to apply one or two of things to your own life.

It’s all about knowing what quadrant you are living in.

Brax Becomes Batman at BMX

A few weeks ago I shared the story of how Braxton went to the BMX track to race for the first time and he was a natural.

Well, Munchie has kept at it and looks forward to going every week.

This past weekend, he wanted to wear his Batman costume, so we let him.   He did his first couple of laps with the cape and mask on.

Looking back at the video, he was ‘Batman’.  I could see that he felt the cape flapping in the wind while he was going over the hills.

The story he was telling himself at that moment was that he was Batman, he was in character.

And yes, Brax is certainly a character.  I love characters, it’s a good thing to be your own character rather than being one of the mindless zombies going through groundhog day, every day.

Going back to the story: in his mind, it didn’t matter that he wasn’t actually Batman, he wanted to be Batman so he became Batman.  We are all just living the story we are telling ourselves about our life in our own mind.

Him being Batman is not different than you believing that you have a tough life with the world against you.

Just tell yourself a different story.

Who You Are Being, Not What You are Doing

Just yesterday I was writing about this very topic and I didn’t look ahead to see what today’s scheduled episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength was, but wouldn’t you know it….

It deals with the same message.

This can only mean one thing.

The universe and the powers that be that we cannot see are trying to speak to you and I.

In today’s episode I talk about being the person you want to be and aspire to be.  Too often, we just get blocked because we are so busy doing that we forget to BE present and focused on the current time.

You Don’t Have Time to Be Sick

I often like to think of myself as Bruce Willis’ character from the movie, Unbreakable.

 

*SPOILER alert.

 

In case you’ve never seen it, he survives a horrific train crash in which nearly everyone else is killed.  Except, he doesn’t even have a scratch.

 

As the movie goes on and you learn more about him, turns out he has never broken a bone (neither have I!) and never so much as even had a cold in his entire life.

 

He is a closet super hero.

 

Well, I used to get sick quite often back when I was teaching.  And no, it wasn’t from the kids as much as it was that I was just running my body into the ground by teaching all day and building Newell Strength in the early morning hours before school and heading back there until late night, each and every night.

 

And then I stopped teaching.

 

I’ve only been sick once in the past 4 years and that was a quickie.

 

As a man, you don’t have time to be sick.  Yes, part of not getting sick is a belief system.  Call it crazy if you want but it’s true.  Look at the most successful and accomplished people that you know and I am willing to bet that they rarely, if ever get sick.

 

It’s probably not something that you’ve noticed before but that’s because you weren’t looking.  Take stock.

 

How could part of it be in the mind?  The mind and your emotions play a great deal into your immune system.  If fact, too much stress throws off the internal environment of our guts, which is home to 80% of our immune system.

 

But I’m not going to go too far down that path right now (I’ll save that for the super heroes in training for another workshop and article).  Nope.  I am going to give you some practical advice that will help you to be the healthy superman that you need to be.

 

First off, make sure you are getting at least 6 hours of quality sleep per night.  6 hours of quality beats 8 hours of tossing and turning every night of the week.

 

Second, drink water and lots of it.  A minimum of ¾ of a gallon per day.  Have you ever noticed how weak you felt when you last had the flu?  That’s because your cells began to become dehydrated.  Use a little reverse engineering and realize that if a bug is trying to fight its way into you, one of the ways to fight it is to hydrate yourself to clear piss.  Trust me, it works.

 

Next, you need to be taking the right supplement protocol to stay healthy.  As I was saying, the majority of the immune system is housed in the gut, so you need to do everything you can to ensure that it maintains a positive environment.

 

For that, you want to make sure you are taking a very good, live probiotic.  I take two per day at lunch.  Second, make sure you are taking a digestive enzyme.  I take hydrochloric acid, HCL.  Stress depletes levels of this in the gut.  Without it being present in the amounts that it should be present in, the bad bugs can begin to proliferate in the gut and weaken the immune system.  Take one in the middle of each solid meal.

 

Another key supplement is D3.  You are very low in this vital ‘pro-hormone’, I can guarantee it.  If you have had blood work recently, you are looking for a number north of 110.  Don’t buy into the norms that the doctors provide you, those norms are developed for all the Homer Simpson’s out there and that ain’t you.

 

The only way to get this number up to that range is to take 35,000-50,000 IU twice per week.  Most doctors will tell you to take 2,000 IU or so per day.  That noise you hear is me laughing.  That won’t do diddly.

 

Charles Poliquin told me a story once of a high-level CEO that was under his care.  This CEO had a HUGE business meeting in China that was potentially worth over $100 million.  The only thing is that the CEO had a very bad flu and felt like crap.

 

Poliquin injected him with something like 1.5 million IU’s of D3.  By the time the CEO landed, he was totally fine.  Every cell in your body has a D3 receptor.  Yes, vitamin C is good but it doesn’t compare to vitamin D in terms of fighting off illness.

 

Lastly, we have a bunch of lymph sitting in the gut.  Your lymphatic system (which is fluid connective tissue) stores the majority of your disease-fighting cells.

 

However, the lymph ducts and tubing are an odd one-way highway:  there is no upward movement out of the ducts and tubes other than being pressed and squeezed through motion, position, palpation or muscular contractions (this is another reason why regular exercise is SO important).

 

Motion will help pump the lymph into your blood stream which will help to fight off any bugs.

 

Now that you have the Bill Nye explanation, how do you do it?  Well, besides exercise, I use a small purple ball.  It’s called a ‘coregeous ball’ and I got it from Jill Miller’s website.  It looks like a miniature stability ball.

 

I lie face down with the ball firmly pressed into my gut.  I begin to roll all areas of my gut while also working on my deep belly breathes.  I do this for a couple of minutes each morning.  It is uncomfortable at first but it is well worth the return on investment.

 

And there you have it, my protocol for not getting sick.  Being sick will cost you financially but even worse it will rob you of your most valuable asset; your time.  Don’t get sick, you don’t have time for it!




What is Success to You? And What are You Willing to Do?

What is Success to You? And What are You Willing to Do?

 

Dan Gable, famous for having only lost one wrestling match in his entire collegiate career at the University of Iowa and for winning a gold medal at the 1972 Olympic Games was asked by a reporter . . .

 

“What made you such a good collegiate wrestler?”

 

He said, “Well, you know, every afternoon at Iowa State we used to work out from [4:00]-[6:30], and from [6:00]-[6:30], we did the hardest conditioning anybody could ever go through. Then at [6:30], that was it.

 

People went to the showers and then left. I went to the locker room and I got my jump rope.

 

Then I’d go back into the wrestling room, and I’d start jumping rope until I passed out.”

 

When’s the last time you put in the extra time?

 

Here’s a link to an article I just finished up for ya, enjoy!

The Path Is Immediate

The Path Is Immediate

When I was 17 years old, I wanted to be the best strength coach in the world.

I didn’t even really know what that meant because I had no one to set the bar against.

All I knew was that I was consumed with this idea of being the best.  Looking back on it, it was being the best that I could become.

It was reaching my full potential.  Am I there yet?  Nope, not even close.

However, I far surpassed my ‘movies of the mind’ from way back when.

You never really know where you are going to wind up.  Most people never even sniff their best self because they are unwilling to see how far they can actually go in life.

The path, your path, is immediate.  You are on it right now.  You can see the next step or even maybe the next couple of steps.

But the path is going to wind and zig-zag and go up and down.  Most people try to see the end from their current position.

You cannot see the end from where you are right now.  All that projecting does is increase your level of anxiety and makes you feel like a loser.

If you are feeling the great anxiety gap, just know that it is caused by trying to focus on the end of the path (which doesn’t really exist, it just keeps going) rather than your current and next steps.

Success is yours for the taking.  So what if it means you gotta show up and do the work every day.  So what if it means that you didn’t see anything after one day of doing visualization exercises.

The time is going to go by anyway.  You and you alone are in charge of your destiny.  If you don’t think so, it’s because you’ve bought into the lie of ‘out there’.

I will be teaching some really cool stuff that will help you activate regions of the brain that you didn’t even knew existed and fusing that with some serious mental work to make 2017 your best year ever.  This one is going to be a bit different, so there’s only room for 6 people.  You can find more info and sign up here, if you dare to be great in 2017: http://kylenewell.com/december
