Experience (4)


Member of the Month for Hillsborough: Johnny Firley

Johnny was February’s member of the month for Hillsborough.

 

He joined us over a year ago and man, does he put in some work!

 

Johnny was used to going to the big box gyms, aka Globo Gym, and as he put it, it got stale.

 

Enthusiasm started to wane and therefore results started to plateau (there’s a lesson for life right there).

 

Anyhow, you can check out what Johnny has to say about his results and experience at Newell Strength right here:

Me Ear Nearly Exploded

10 days ago, we flew down to Naples to experience a good friend’s wedding. It was the first time that Devon and I were away from the boys for 2 whole nights.

Heading into the trip, I was still battling that damn head cold and I wasn’t thinking the morning of our departing flight to take some decongestant, heck, I even forgot to pack it in my carry on…

Well, upon the descent, the pressure was wreaking havoc on my sinuses and my right ear literally felt like it was going to explode. And the rest of the night I had an intense pressure headache (until I went out and loaded up on some medicine).

Here’s the thing: when I was in extreme discomfort, all I wanted to do was make it go away. I could have prevented the entire problem by taking more time to rest and by taking some medicine ahead of the flight.

Your health is the same way; what good is having all the riches in the world if you don’t have the fitness to enjoy them? You are going to pay for your health either now or later. And if its later, it’s going to cost you a lot more and in more ways than one.

Another Vicious Dog Attack, This Time on Munchie

Yes, there are two lessons here.

 

The first: there is a lesson to be learned in every single event you experience each and every day.

 

The second we will get to.

 

Last Saturday, we went over to see how our new tenants were doing.  I had to check on the cold water valve, which took a bit longer than expected, so Devon and Munchie were upstairs shooting the breeze with the girls.

 

The one girl had her two chihuahua’s away in a bedroom.  Well, about 40 minutes into our visit (way too long!), she let them out.

 

She was worried that the one brown haired dog was too nasty to be near Braxton, so she held him the entire rest of the time.

 

Well, just before leaving, we all went down to the basement so I could show them where the one valve was that me and my buddy were fixing.

 

The other chihuahua, a white haired one, was on the floor next to Munchie.

 

I was looking up at the ceiling at the pipe and next thing I know, the dog made a weird noise and Munchie was bleeding from his eye and lip.

 

Apparently he touched the dog from behind and it just snapped (a good thing Mateena wasn’t there or I am sure we would have had a dead chihuahua on our hands).

 

The owner was mortified.

 

Devon and I stayed calm.  Braxton was shook up for sure but a few tears and a Christmas cookie and he was happy.

 

We left shortly after reassuring the owner that it wasn’t her fault.

 

On the way over to Lowe’s, Devon started getting a pit in her stomach like somehow it was her fault.  Which of course, is the motherly thing to think, but it was in no way her fault.

 

She was beating herself up for reacting too slowly.  But here is where the lessons come in.

 

When in a state of stress, we often go into freeze mode, which causes us to not react or to react a bit slower than normal.  Devon was fighting millions of years of physiology, she had not a shot.

 

And from what I have seen and heard in the past with little dogs and little kids, I should have formulated a prediction and told Devon to hold the Munch man.  This would have been a response to my prediction, which goes along with the brain being a pattern recognition machine.

 

There is a HUGE difference between reaction and response.  One his human, the other is animal.

 

Yes, this can apply to any area of your life.  All I am asking you to do is to think about it and ponder it.

 

Munchie is okay.  His eye wound up swelling pretty bad and he had to go on a round of antibiotics because the bite turned into an infection. But it and that’s a big BUTT, it could have been so much worse.

 

His actual eyeball went unscathed.

 

Beware of the lessons in your life.

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.
