Education (3)

Do You Want to Be a Formally Educated Zombie?

I began listening to Jim Rohn Audio books back in 2008 when I would drive to and from my day job of being a physical educator.


He was an old-timer, but I was hooked once I found out that he was a mentor to Tony Robbins.


I still have those CDs and in fact, I still listen to my old audio books on CD quite often.


One of my favorite quotes from old Jim was, ‘Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.’




So let me get this straight; I was correct in not being too interested in my formal education?!


I would dive into and learn the things that I found fascinating but anything else in the classroom was just a chore I had to get done.


When people ask me was certifications they should get; whether they should go back for that doctorates, masters, etc., I always chuckle. I went through that phase also when I was looking to begin my PhD program back in 07-08’.


But guess what?  No one cares where you went to school.  They care about two things: what you know and can you help them (within the scope of ‘do you actually care about the said person’).


Go to school, grow as a person but realize that your education is in your own hands.

You Gotta Feel Some Type of Way

I remember back when I was really diving head first into the self-development world, as a young physical education teacher.

At that time, I was often drained since I was training for bodybuilding shows, teaching, getting my masters and launching Newell Strength from the ground floor.

Being tired, meant that it would be easy for the fatigue to set my mindset.  But I realized that I had a choice to either feel down or great.

So, I would often spend a minute in front of the mirror, just smiling at myself, knowing that it would send positive chemicals to my brain.

Your physiology holds the key to helping you change your state almost instantaneously and you need to work on the mindset of being able to choose how your days are going to feel.

Why feel down when you have the option of feeling up?

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.
