Holiday (5)


Merry Christmas You Rascal

I am not  sure if today will find you opening your email or not and I get it.

 

Today is a day to be with those that you love.

 

But I also want you to feel and notice the vibrational energy that is so positive on a day like this.

 

Everyone’s spirits are lifted.  The very nature of the holiday, regardless of your religion, raises the energy of the world.

 

How can you keep your  energy high heading into the new year?

 

Merry Christmas!

  1. Risk-free 30-Day Jumpstart.

And, through the New Year, we are running the 30-day jump start for 50% off at only $99!!!! And yes, you can share this with friends.  Simply REPLY to devon@newellstrength.com an email with the subject: ‘jumpstart’.



The Mysterious Rice in the Salt Shaker

A few weeks ago, Devon told me that she was putting some salt into the boy’s bedroom diffuser and rice kept getting in there somehow.

 

I chuckled, because I had been putting rice into the salt shaker since it gets very humid back near the creek where we live and the salt gets clumpy.

 

It’s an old restaurant trick.

 

Devon’s mystery was solved.  Surely she knew that rice couldnt’ spontaneously appear out of nothing, right?

It’s no different than thinking muscle weighs more than fat (they weigh the same, a pound is a pound) or that thinking you can turn your body fat into muscle.

 

Pick the main goal, building muscle or losing weight, and focus on that until you  get to where you are happy and then address the other side of the coin….

P.S.-Today is the last day of our Black Friday special (get an awesome jumpstart on your holiday shopping!)

 

Today is the last day you can get our 30-day jump start program for yourself or as a gift for just $49!!!! It’s normally $199, so you do the math.  And there is no expiration on it.  If you’d like to snag one of these while they are around, simply reply to this email with ‘I want one’ in the subject box. 




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

You Have Megatons to be Thankful For

You Have Megatons to be Thankful For

I am hoping that you get to read this before this great holiday of traditions and festivities begin.

You can feel the vibration levels of the people around you rising on days like this.

Everyone is in a better mood.

Be present today, BE.

It’s so easy for us to live for a future that doesn’t exist yet or to get caught up in past turmoil and grudges.  But both of those ‘places’ aren’t real.  They are projections of the mind.

Now is a GIFT, that’s why it’s called the present:)

Take some deep breathes today and take some mental pictures of the moments you find yourself being present in the moment.

In life, when we get down and overwhelmed, it is usually because we have become too SELF-focused.  How can you we change that?

You can make a list of all that you are grateful for in life.  And yes my friend, you have MEGAtons to be grateful for.

You have your vision, both literal and spiritual.

You have people that love you.

You have use of your hands and feet.

You have true freedom.

You have a nice bed to sleep in.

You are the WORLD to someone else.

Let’s remember as head into this holiday season that life is precious, to be lived in the moment and be mindful when your mind starts to leave you behind.

Line up that body, your brain and your spirit like 3 lasers ready to shoot through any obstacle that gets in it’s way.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Listen to Learn and Learn to Listen

Listen to Learn and Learn to Listen

In the summer before my senior of high school, I was fortunate enough to travel out to Michigan to attend Tom Izzo’s summer basketball camp at Michigan State University.

I was born in Michigan and am a HUGE Michigan State fan, so getting to meet Izzo, his staff and the current players was icing on the cake.

It was at that particular camp that I got to meet my favorite player of all-time, Mateen Cleaves.

You may not be aware of the fact that we named Mateena, our silver lab, after Mateen.

But anywho, the reason it was the best camp I ever attended was because of the teaching style of Izzo.

Everything had a purpose.  There wasn’t one second wasted.

One of the big pearls of wisdom that I walked away with was his saying, ‘Listen to learn and learn to listen.’

So clear, and so simple

Listening is a skill, one that I would call the mother skill of becoming a success.

Too many people don’t know how to listen or they don’t care about listening.  In their minds, they know all the answers already.

I often re-listen to audiobooks, time and time again because each time, I learn something new.

You don’t learn everything the first time through.

Each time I coach someone, I learn something new.  Read that again, I learn something new, not just the client.

In life, I don’t believe that you can stay stagnant.  You are either marching up the hill or you are rolling back down it.

DO NOT fall for the illusion of maintenance and complacency.  They both will lead to mediocrity and as my idol Arnold once said, ‘Average is the worst thing in the world.’

I agree.

Here’s your chance not to be average: come out on Thanksgiving morning for the best Thanksgiving morning workout you’ve ever had.  You will be above average by donating to a great cause (Little Charlie Kroog) and you will be superior to all the couch potatoes that are like sloths on this great holiday.

Boost your brain chemicals first thing in the morning and I can guarantee that this Thanksgiving will be your favorite and most memorable one yet!
