Winners Do This..

Way back in 2007, while driving to and from my teaching gig, I would listen to audio cds.

 

In fact, as I write this, I am relistening to a lot of those CDs as I drive around town each week.

 

Well, one of the guys, Dan Kennedy, was fond of making a point about being able to ‘clear the calculator’ quickly.

 

We all have ‘bad things’ happen to us.  Call them setbacks or obstacles, it doesn’t matter what the label is.  Average people allow these things to take sooo much time to overcome.

 

Winners, on the other hand, have an almost uncanny and superhero-like ability to ‘clear the calculator’ and forge ahead.

 

This is in large part because winners are masters at reframing and they expect there to be obstacles along the way.

 

Both of these are just ways of thinking and that is a skill.  All skills can be learned, so….

He Only Had 5 Years Left to Live

A few weeks ago, I was doing the weekly video with GL when I sensed that he was veering off course.  He’d be the first to tell you so.

 

When we got to why remembering why he started, he said it was to lose weight.

 

On the very surface, yes.

 

But weight loss in and of itself isn’t the driver.  What type of pain and suffering is the extra weight costing you?

 

I dug and dug and then he said if he had continued on his path when he started with our sweepstakes a few years ago, he may have had only 20 years left to live, to which I said, ‘Dude, more like 5! You were 400 pounds and climbing!’

 

Sometimes we all need a bigger dose of the truth. Sugar coating never helps anyone move forward.

 

Where in your life do you need more brutal honesty and ‘violent’ accountability?  We all need it….

I Have a Confession

One month ago, I sat in the baby room at our church with Emma when Brent, our pastor, was speaking about fasting as a part of his sermon.

 

He had mentioned Newell Strength a few times since the topic was about forming new habits, being that we had just entered the new year.

 

After the sermon, Devon and I went up to say hi as we always do and I said, ‘Brent, I’d be happy to do something fitness related for the community up here if you’d like.’

 

Bam!  Within minutes I had committed, he was putting the info in the very next sermon that was starting in 20 minutes.

 

They got a selfie picture of me and we were off to the running.

 

The lesson here is that I was stepping out of my comfort zone and I took action on an idea long before I even knew the details.

 

I didn’t know how I was going to do it, when I would fit it in, how I would speak to the people that joined my life group.  But it didn’t matter, the idea struck me and I spoke up.

 

In life, you cannot wait for all the lights to be green.  Just begin.

Member of the Month: Mike Double V

I remember sitting down with Mike roughly a year ago and listening to why he was a good fit for our Ripped Dads contest.

 

He had been struggling with energy, weight gain and type 2 diabetes for some time.

It’s been amazing to witness his transformation both physically and mentally the past year.  He has become a HUGE part of the tribe at Newell Strength and he continues to inspire others as they look for that torchbearer to follow.

 

We are so inspired by Mike, keep it up!

You Don’t Have a Mindset Problem

6 years ago, I spent a weekend in a classroom learning from Dax Moy.  The topic was Mind Mapping, something that was calling me to learn and to teach.

 

Little did I know that it would be one of the great learning periods of my life.

 

One of the things that many people don’t know that Dax taught me was the concept of the ‘3 brains’.

 

We are all only taught about the human brain, otherwise known as the mind.  The problem is, you can’t access the mind fully and progressively if there is a deeper ‘brain-set’ problem in the animal brains.

 

Yup, you don’t have a mindset problem, you most likely have a ‘brain-set’ problem.  You can learn more about it in today’s 10 minute episode.  Take a listen right here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2020/02/03/You-Dont-Have-a-Mindset-Problem

Monday Mindset: Mamba Mentality

A little over two weeks ago, the great Kobe Bryant passed, along with his daughter and 7 others.

 

It is tragic to say the least.

 

It really shook me to the core, I spent a good part of that Sunday night crying.  My love for basketball and my admiration for this guy and my compassion for a fellow father, all boiled into thinking about how he was taken too soon from this earth.

 

But there are higher powers than my mortal mind.  We have to learn from tragedies such as this one.

 

One of the things that inspired me so much about Kobe was his mindset, known as the Mamba Mentality.  He gave us that gift, that torch.  It didn’t matter if you weren’t a basketball player, the Mamba Mentality was about never giving in, never giving up, no matter what.

 

That is part of his legacy.  He gave us that, it’s up to us whether we cement it home.

 

Listen, we all are gonna die.  What gift are you going to leave behind?  And no, you don’t have to be famous to leave a legacy.

A Breakthrough for the Boys

Back in July, we moved Tank into Munchies room in anticipation of Emma taking over Tank’s room.

 

It took some getting used to for them and us.

 

Anyhow, its been pretty smooth sailing, Munch sleeps in the bottom bunk of his bunk bed and Tank still sleeps in a crib.

 

Well, not long ago, I heard a commotion late at night.  I went down to inspect and Munchie had pushed the toy chest over to the crib and helped Tank climb up and out.  The two weasels had figured out an escape plan.

 

The next night, at 2 in the morning, once again, I  hear a commotion.  I go down, bright lights from the room are turned on and Munchie once again was trying to help Tank escape.  I nipped that attempt in the bud.

 

Tank couldn’t have done it himself.  But with the help of his brother, it was possible.

 

This is a lot like how Coaching works.  A Coach is someone that can help you get to a destination  that  you cannot get to  on your own.

 

In this case, Munchie was Tank’s Coach.

 

If you are looking for a Coach heading into the New Year, all you have to do is reach out to us via any of the means below or by simply  replying to this email.

Why Are You Underestimating Yourself?

Why Are You Underestimating Yourself?

Most people greatly overestimate what they can do in a few months but greatly underestimate what they can do in 5 years.

Most people’s ideas never make it out of their head into reality.

Most ideas go to the graveyard.

But it’s easy to be enthusiastic about a new idea.  Novelty is the greatest aphrodisiac.

I’ve come across a lot of people that ask me for advice or coaching on start-ups of some sort or another and you’d be shocked at how few people stick with their idea past the two or three month mark.

They fail to realize that all overnight successes take 12 years (at least!).

You aren’t most people though.  I want you to be different.

The first year we held our Thanksgiving morning workout, we had 4 people show up.

The second year (I wasn’t there because I had just ruptured my patellar tendon for a second time) there were 14 people.

The third year we had 60 people.

And just this past week, we had 100 people at the TG charity workout!

If more people would develop ‘sticktoitiveness’, they would realize all their dreams.

I want you to think long and hard about a 5 year projection for yourself and commit to it this coming year.  Don’t give up, don’t ever give up.

You might surprise yourself, but you won’t surprise me because I already believe in you.

We still have a few openings in our next edition of Ripped Dads which begins next week.  If you are looking to get back on track or maybe your husband is looking to get back on track, then you should check out the application here: http://www.newellstrength.com/men-2/

Yoda, Einstein and Seinfeld

Yoda, Einstein and Seinfeld

What do these 3 characters have in common?

They all had a life philosophy to live by.

Yes, I know this is the second time this week we are talking about philosophy.

And in case you are behind, on Wednesday I wrote about my training philosophies.

Well, today my good friend, I am going to let you in on some of my life’s philosophies.

You know, as each year goes by, I get more and more confident.  Not arrogant, but SELF-confident.  After some reflection, I realize that is because my life philosophies are really becoming more ingrained and taking ‘root’.

I cannot state the importance of having a list of principals you live by.

I will not list them all here, but I will be covering this in much more detail in an upcoming podcast (you do realize I now have a podcast, right?:)).

Without further ado:

  • My mind must be nurtured each day through learning new things and connection with a higher power.  A weak mind equals a weak life.
  • I get final say of who I let into my life.  If someone drains me, they get banned from my life.  And no, this doesn’t have to be a confrontation.  I just cut off my life’s energy from them leeching off it anymore. I know who’s opinions to value and whose don’t.
  • Time is the most precious thing that I have, I must protect is like my life depends on it, because it does.
  • I cannot reason with emotion.  It’s a losing proposition.  Don’t offer up ‘coaching’ in any relationship in your life if the person doesn’t ask you for it.
  • Nearly any skill can be learned through repetition.  And repetition is what separates the successful from the tire-kickers.  Enthusiasm is easy, endurance is the hard part.

Wo-MAN, that is therapeutic just writing it out once again.  Give it a try.  I could go on forever, but my workout with the Wolverine is calling my name.

Be different.  Get clear on your philosophy.

Mentally Wiped Out

Mentally Wiped Out

Back in May of this year, I finally pulled the trigger and hired Producer Jonathan to run my podcast.

You see, I had been sitting on the idea for nearly a year.

It was one of my top 3 goals for 2016 but yet I just couldn’t pull the trigger.

Not because I didn’t want to, but because I had so many other things going on.

And besides, creative work is the hardest kind.  ‘Old man resistance’ will come up to get you at every turn.

I didn’t know where to begin, although I knew where to find that information after talking with a few buddies (remember, information is rarely the real road block).

Was my dream going to become a ‘coulda-been’?

And then, like manna from the heavens, I stumble across Producer Jonathan.

I applied for a consulting call ($500 for 30 minutes).  We rappe for a bit on Skype and then I went all in.

I invested quite a bit into his coaching and services, BUT…

I knew that if I did so, I would make my dream a reality because I would have someone holding me to the fire, expecting results, not putting up with any BS.

So here we are, just recorded episodes 15 and 16 yesterday and I am super jazzed about the direction that business is going in.

When you have an opportunity seeking mindset in life, you will never create a real impact.

When you have an investment mindset, you know that you have to invest your time, energy and money but as long as you do the work, the ROI will be super.

Which mindset are you of? And be totally honest with yourself…the investment mindset or the opportunity seeking mindset?

And if you are looking for a new Thanksgiving day morning tradition, come check out our 7AM charity workout.  Coffee and Mimosas will be provided and we promise you’ll be back home shortly after 8:). https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thanksgiving-morning-charity-workout-at-newell-strength-tickets-29224482213
