Brain (17)


You Possess the Most Powerful Tool in the Known Universe

Six years ago, I was exposed to Mind Map for the first time and since that time, it has become a great passion of mine.  

Until then, I hadn’t given much thought to the difference between the Mind and the brain.  

All animals have a brain, yet only the human BEING possesses a Mind.  This is the most powerful tool in the known universe.  

It can plan, create, learn, visualize and use linear logic.  Yet, most people never tap into it, they take it for granted.  

The way you can use it to its fullest is to develop SELF-belief and know that you can do what you want to do with your life, you can create what you want to create.  Once you believe this, unleash that unlimited power.

Plan out how you are going to put the power of your brain to use and then get to work (learning, acquiring knowledge, meditation, visualization, learning by doing and so forth).

Habits of a Happy Brain

Studying the brain is one of my main passions in life.  I have been interested in it for as long as I can remember and I began studying it formally back in 2014 when Dax Moy began teaching me Mind Map.

People often ask me about what book I read or recommend to learn Mind Map and the answer is, there isn’t a book on it (yes, I know, I am working on developing one with Dax:)).  

But if there was a book that described a lot of the concepts of Mind Map, it would be a book that I recently finished, ‘Habits of a Happy Brain’.  

In today’s episodes, I describe and explain the 4 horsemen of hormones, dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins, as explained in the book.  Enjoy!!!

P.S-My new book is finally out on Amazon.  It’s all things fasting, from my point of view.  If you want a world class tutorial and ‘how to’ with my system of fasting, then you pick up a copy of  the book.  And if you like it, please leave a review.  https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Diet-Unconventional-Approach-Lasting/dp/0578687372/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kyle+newell&qid=1592831921&s=books&sr=1-2

 

P.P.S-Now that we are taking new clients once again, we are opening the doors for July to 12 new trial members.  This is just what the doctor ordered for you if you’ve been locked in, with little outdoor time, not enough physical activity and not enough fun.  You can apply for a spot at this link and Coach Dana will be reaching out to you.  https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/jumpstart

 




Breakthrough for Brax

About two weeks ago, we were at our good friend’s beach house.  It’s one of our favorite places to BE.  

It is amazing to watch the relationships with Brax, Tank and Emma evolve with our dear friends.  And Devon and I know that it takes a village to raise a child.  

Watching Brax learn from Sweet Lou in the pool was amazing.  Brax rapidly progressed from Friday night until Sunday afternoon.  

Much, much quicker than an adult can learn anything.  

Part of the reason is youth and a, ripe brain.  But the other part is that Braxton is so endlessly curious.  He is self-competitive.  

He asks a ton of questions, he tries something, then evaluates and adds on the next skill.  In this case, it was jumping in the pool with no life jacket, staying underwater for up to 10 seconds, searching the bottom of the pool for toys, etc.

It was amazing to watch and I was as proud as a dad could be.  

What did I learn from Brax?  Simply to always be endlessly curious and to be better than I was prior (prior day, prior week, prior year and on).

P.P.S-After much consideration, we are pushing our Fat Shredder to September.  We will be able to run it better and people will be ready for it.  We don’t want anyone to miss out.  Details will come out as it gets closer.  




How to Deal With Fear During this Corona Situation

A few weeks ago, I recorded today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength.

At the time, fear was at its peak regarding this Corona situation.

Now that we have more clarity, you will see that much of the Mind Map stuff I teach in this episode is more relevant.

You deal with fear in any situation by gaining clarity.

You gain clarity by prediction and response.  And here’s the thing; you don’t even have to be right, it’s the attempt at the equation that is important for your brain.

You  can take a listen right here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2020/04/28/How-to-Deal-With-Fear-During-this-Corona-Situation

GL is Down 100!!

Two Friday mornings ago as I was walking in for my 6AM workout, GL was on his way out.  He came over and told me the news that he had officially lost 100 pounds!!!

We gave each other a big hug and it made me light up!

When GL started the first time around, almost two years ago, you could say that he failed.  He had modest improvements in his very first Ripped Dads contest, but he hadn’t truly flipped the switch yet.

He came back 6 months later and now look at him!

There are ups and downs, he’d be the first one to tell you that.

But you know what his key to success is????

It’s to show up, day after day, even if you had a slip up the day prior and focus on winning that day.

100 pounds in unfathomable to most people and if you thought about it all at once, you’d have no shot at achieving it, your brain would be overwhelmed.

Inch by inch, it’s a cinch.

Congratulations GL!

How to lift a mental fog




The Pitbull Attack on my Birthday

The Pitbull Attack on my Birthday

Two years ago, on my birthday to be exact, we took Dax and Mateen over to the dog park before going to see a movie later on that night.

Devon was 8 months pregnant with Braxton at that point.  We were already at the dog park for about a half hour when I noticed a pit bull acting very strange.

And after talking to the owner, I knew why.  The owner was aloof and didn’t even know the background of this dog that he had rescued one month earlier.

I do hate that pit’s get a bad rap, they are beautiful dogs and usually the ones that you see on the news are part of a cultural problem, not the actual breed.

Anywho, we watched as the pit spearheaded another mut right in the side for no good reason.

That’s when I said to Devon that we should start making our way to the truck.  We had already been there long enough and I didn’t like having this wild card near my pups.

Now, keep in mind, stupidly, I had flip flops on because it was a very hot, late summer day.  Mateena made one more bee line to go mark her territory as we were walking towards the gate.

I turned around and saw the pit running at her. There was also a rot that had just arrived, making his way over to the very same area.

Mateena knows herself as silly as that sounds.  I’d argue that she knows herself better than most people.  She knows that she is a loner and that she doesn’t like being in a crowded area.

And like any dog, she reacts if put in a situation that she doesn’t like.  The pit went up behind her and started sniffing her BE-hind.  Mateena turned and did this little chomp she does to let other dogs know to back off.

As I saw this unfolding, I was already running as fast as I could over to the spot because I knew what was about to happen.  The pit reacted to her chomp and clamped down on her skull.  Thank God I got there in time to kick the pit in the head a few times, dislodging his grip on her.

Stupidly, once again (man this was a dumb day by me all around), I stayed between the pit and Mateena and the rot that was now starting to get worked up.  I didn’t think about what it could have done to me.  I reacted and put my family first.

Luckily, I was very aware of my surroundings that day.

I knew the environment and I could ‘feel’ the energy that was in the air.

You can do the same thing, not with a pit bull of course but in your home, at your job, etc.

Environments are triggers.  The brain is always scanning your environments.  You are either going to be at the mercy of your environments or you are going to master your environments.

People often are stressed out of their minds because of their very mismanagement of their environments.

Well, lucky for you, Dana told me it’d be okay to run a special for her Fascial Stretch Therapy service for the holiday season.  For the month of Decemeber, Dana is offering a buy 2, get 1 free deal.

I am already booking a bunch for myself and Devon.

If you are overly stressed, tight in your lower back and regular old massage isn’t doing the trick, then shoot me an email and I will set you up with Dana.  For inquiring minds, if you aren’t sure what FST is, Dana shows you in a quick video here: https://youtu.be/mSUTCEkl3lM

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

Wanna Know How I Went 4 Years Without Getting Sick?

Wanna Know How I Went 4 Years Without Getting Sick?

When I was teaching, I used to get sick all the time.

I was over-extended and run down.

But a funny thing happened as soon as I stopped teaching; I ceased getting sick with things like the common cold or sinus infection.

My streak came to an end last year during a period of high stress (hmmm, I wonder if there is any correlation?).

Now, I am back at my streak.  Although Devon’s bronchitis tried to weasel its way into me this past week, I told it to go find someone else to bother because ‘I don’t have time for that non-sense.’

Yes, I actually talk to my brain like that and often.  And there’s your first clue as to why I don’t get sick anymore.

  • Besides a strong belief in my immunity, I also eat a ton of good, organic, cholesterol-laden foods.
  • And I roll my gut out each morning as part of my morning routine. Why?  Because 80% of your lymphatic fluid and immune system are located in the gut, but there they stay if you don’t do anything to ‘pump’ them to the rest of the body.

And these are two things that we are going to be adding into our clients programs in terms of education and practice.  What other fitness facility would even dare to make such claims?

None that I can think of.  But then again, there are none that I know of that are striving to BE the best in the world.

If you’d like to try some of this wizardry out, then you can inquire about our 3-Week Test Drive this holiday season.  I must warn you, we are highly selective and spots are limited to just 5 for the month of December since it’s our super busy season.  http://www.newellstrength.com/3wtd

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.
