Work (9)


Are You Asking the Right Question?

Last year, when I was on a panel speaking to other private gym owners; I was asked what was the one trait that had served me most in my career. work

Easy, eternal optimism.

Like anyone else, I have ups and downs and have to constantly work on my mindset, which I why I have studied the brain so much over the years (i.e. Mind Mapping).

Yet, I’ve come to realize that we need a balance of a positive mental attitude and a logical, linear approach.

You get a logical approach to a problem that needs to be solved by asking the right question.

For example, let’s say you are feeling low in energy, a bit too heavy and your joints hurt.  If you are like most, you will assume that the problem is that you are low in energy, too heavy and have joints that hurt.

However, you’d be wrong.  Those are merely symptoms of the problem.  The root problem could be something like trouble in forming discipline, not knowing which habits to work on, and so on.

No matter how good your intentions are, there is nothing worse than running enthusiastically in the wrong direction.

Remember, the thing is not the thing (almost always).

Your Fear is an Illusion

I remember six and a half years ago when I had just handed in my letter of resignation from teaching.

I had to do a lot of mental work to overcome the fears that were telling me I was making a mistake.

But it was within that journey that I realized that all fear is an illusion because it’s based in future based thought.  (Unless you are literally being hunted by a tiger, lion or giant grizzly bear!)

In today’s episode, that is one of the five things I have to share with you.  We all have a mission in life and one of my mine is to help people see through their fear and past their fear.

Why It Didn’t Work For You…

I remember back when I was 17, first playing around with an extreme muscle building diet which was off the charts hard for me at the time.

I failed.

Listen, we have all tried and failed at fitness and nutrition before.

If you found the program too complex….

If you weren’t enjoying the process….

If you were dependant on a ‘fake expert’….

Then you were guaranteed to fail.

The answer is, then, to have a Coach or Coaches that’ll simplify the journey.

Remember, fitness isn’t supposed to be your life. It is supposed to enhance your life. If it’s wearing you out and making you feel overwhelmed, then you are on the wrong path.

The answer to overwhelm is: never more.

Your Mind is Like Parachute

Imagine jumping out of a plane, 10,000 feet up in the air.

Your security is your parachute pack.

And your parachute can only work if its open, much like your mind.

When you have a closed mind, you will not learn anything.

An open mind allows you to create and creating is the real key to learning, making your own connections.

Always practice emptying your cup.

Progress, Not Perfection

 

Today, time is precious for me.  I have four, 20-minute work blocks spaced out by five minute breaks in between.

Years ago, I would have panicked, feeling like today was a loss.

But not any more.  Today is chance to ‘move the chains’.

This is a football analogy in case you aren’t familiar with the term.

 

Life isn’t about the hail mary highlight, it’s about moving the chains one foot at a time.

Today, I am going to move the chains through 80 minutes of focused work.

And that all ties in to the idea of progress, not perfection.

Perfection is F.E.A.R disguised as a noble thing.  Perfection doesn’t exist.

Perfection the fear that tells you that others may judge you since what you are ‘putting out there’ isn’t good enough, yet.

I got news for ya, it’s never going to be perfect.  But good is good enough.

In life, you have ideas, some are good, some are bad.  But when a worthy idea ‘sticks’, we must move forward with the idea of progress in our head and hearts.

Take the first step.  Move the chains a couple of yards today.

At the end of a week, a month, a few months, a year or even a few years, you will have been up and down that field of life so many times, all through the scope of daily progress.

Whether you are working on your body, your mind or your spirit, apply the concept of progress, not perfection.

You got this.

The Anti-Resolution Plan

 

While at a party the other day, someone said to me, ‘I am done with making resolutions!  They never work and they only ever make me feel like a loser.’

 

She was right, they don’t work.

 

Resolutions are usually made on a whim and they are usually based on an extreme amount of willpower that mere mortals don’t normally possess.

 

Think about what resolution means.  It means to resolve a problem.

 

A problem has a solution.

 

A solution is a plan.

 

The reason resolutions don’t work is because there is no plan of action.  Saying you want to do something is meaningless.

 

Action is where it’s at.

 

And if your undertaking is something you are dreading, you are doomed to fail.  You don’t transform your life by doing something you despise.

 

The anti-resolution program is to do it differently than everyone else.

 

You focus on habits and systems and you don’t do anything that involves boatloads of will power.

 

The anti-resolution plan means creating a map ahead of time.

 

Planning is one of the most important things you can do, a quadrant 2 activity.

 

Plan for success – Kyle Newell

 

P.S-Our first-ever ‘Anti-Resolution Program’ at Newell Strength starts in just a few weeks.  5 of the spots are gone already.  You can apply or tell a friend about this special $99 program for 30 days here:  https://goo.gl/forms/JP73A2bomPM1JYoE2




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!

 

Plan and prepare for the week ahead! – Kyle Newell

Your Main Problem is That You Think You Shouldn’t Have Any

Your Main Problem is That You Think You Shouldn’t Have Any

 

While eating a nice grass fed, organic cheeseburger the other night, I had a Tony Robbins documentary on in the background.

 

I have long been a HUGE fan of Robbins’ work.  ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ is one of my top 5 all-time books and was THE book that got everything started for me.

 

Devon and I even stayed at his resort in Fiji for our honeymoon 5 years ago.

 

His message is always relevant to the listener IF the student is ready to accept the truth.  And that was once again the case in his documentary when he told the crowd: You wanna know what your main problem is?  Your main problem is that you don’t think you should have any of the problems that you have.

 

Think about that for a second.  The nature of the mind is to not want problems, yet we cannot grow without problems, failure and challenge.

 

The winner’s mind seeks out and embraces problems.  If you avoid problems at all costs, you are living small.

 

Were you put here on this earth to live big or play small?

 

The purpose of life I believe, is growth.  You cannot stay the same.  You are either regressing or growing.

 

The very law of momentum in life means that it’s impossible to stay put.  Yes, you can rest for a few minutes to smell the roses, like the sherpa that is climbing the mountain.  But like the sherpa, you must decide to keep going.

 

The higher up you go, the more important it will be to rest and recharge.

 

Speaking of recharging, Dana is running an awesome special for her FST sessions for the month of December: buy 2 get one free.

 

Get something different this year for your family members.  You can even use that extra session on yourself to recharge.

 

I have tried many different types of recovery and relaxation methods, but this is by far my favorite! You can email her at dana@newellstrength.com

 

Peace – Kyle Newell

Rhino’s Don’t Feel Gnats

Rhino’s Don’t Feel Gnats

Have you ever been stopped dead in your tracks by judgment?

I am sure the answer is yes.  The brain is very sensitive to judgment for survival reasons.

Here’s how it works:  your brain perceives slights and judgments.  The animal brain perceives it as you might get ‘kicked out’ of the tribe and your chance for survival goes way down.

(By the way, this is THE reason people in general are so petrified of public speaking).

Whenever you are trying to actually create something in your life, the swamp creatures will come out to attack.  It’s human nature.

And if you worried about everyone that said something mean or nasty about you, you would never ever be able to succeed.

Do you know why Rhino’s don’t feel gnats?  It’s because they have thick skin…

What other people think of you is none of your business.

If you expect that any time you are passing someone on the ladder of life they WILL bark at you, then you can formulate your response ahead of time.

Don’t give them any energy of yours.  Simply move on and realize that if you are trying to please everyone, you will wind up pleasing nobody.

Your self-image is everything.  Believe in what you are doing.

December’s workshop is going to be like nothing you’ve ever experienced.  I was going to do it on the 14th, but I need a little extra time to prepare for this one.  This one will be limited to 7 people max.  Keep an eye later this week for the bullet points of what we will be doing at this ‘Davinci’ workshop.
