Learning (7)

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

Powerful MindMap Realities for You

Back in 2014, when I first started learning about Mind Mapping from Dax Moy, I knew I had connected with something that spoke to my spirit.


It became and remains a deep passion of mine.


So, as of late, I have been going back to the beginning and ‘re-learning’ the whole thing.  Which means, lucky you, I am going to be entertaining you with Mind Map principles and stories for the forseeable future (remember, teaching is the best way to learn).


Anyhow, in today’s episode, I teach you about how your actions are determined by your inner dialogue.  You inner dialogue is determined by…well, you’ll just have to listen to find out.

Your Mind is Like Parachute

Imagine jumping out of a plane, 10,000 feet up in the air.

Your security is your parachute pack.

And your parachute can only work if its open, much like your mind.

When you have a closed mind, you will not learn anything.

An open mind allows you to create and creating is the real key to learning, making your own connections.

Always practice emptying your cup.

The Highest Form of Learning is Unlearning

I was always a decent student, not great, but above average.

Unless the subject matter stimulated me, I didn’t see the point.

It was only after I graduated from college that I realized how much of a passion I had for learning.

I swore I would never read another book again when my commencement ceremony was over, my dad can attest to this.

Then as I kept getting deeper and deeper into my passion of strength training, I realized how much more there was to learn.  And I realized that information is not knowledge.

As the years have gone by, I have discarded principles that I thought I would live by the rest of my life.  But as I learned, I discarded.  Back and forth it went.  I kept emptying my cup.

In today’s episode of Unlocking Your Inner Strength, I go over the highest form of learning and believe me, there are some gems in there for you to take and apply if you so choose.  You can listen to the episode here: http://kylenewell.com/inner-strength-podcast/

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.

Sometimes Giving Credit Where Credit is Do Will Get You Attacked

Sometimes Giving Credit Where Credit is Do Will Get You Attacked

I got news for ya.

Regular cardio doesn’t work.

Let me clarify that.  It doesn’t work for fat loss.

I could say just to look at what the majority are doing and do the opposite and leave it at that.  But I won’t.

In the early spring of 2008, I was being mentored and coached by legendary physique expert, Scott Abel, of Canada.

His philosophy really clicked with the direction I was heading in.  And he was the first authority that I came across thad the science to back up things I had been doing since college: the epic cheat day and my ‘anti’ cardio stance.

Scott wrote an article or two about it.  I read them, re-wrote them in my own words with some other methods I was learning about and then I taught them.

The best way to learn is to write about it and teach about it (anything).  I gave Scott full credit in my article, which wound up going viral in the fitness world.

And then I was attacked by his little army of minions for copying him.  Sigh….

Did I use his ideas?  Yup!  Did I capitalize on his ideas?  Yup!

But did I put my own unique twist on it?  Yup!  I have always blended what I have learned from the masters into my own unique style, my voice if you will.

Part of my life’s philosophy is to take things and make them your own.  Don’t plagiarize.

Once you find your voice, and you believe in it, it becomes easy to absorb what is useful and to discard the rest.

There is nothing new under the sun, only new ways and angles of looking at existing things.

If you are a mom or know of a mom that would like to know why we don’t do cardio at Newell Strength, but even more importantly what we do in place of it that is much  more effective, then send them over here to apply for our Fit Moms Challenge:  http://www.newellstrength.com/fit-mom/

Why Would a Guy My Size Need to Know Self-Defense?

Why Would a Guy My Size Need to Know Self-Defense?

I recently started going back to my self-defense class.

Last week I was learning some pretty cool stuff, like how to shatter a man’s hand when he throws a punch, how to disarm an attacker with a knife and some other stuff that is pretty lethal.

I came back with a few welts on my forearms, but it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

When I tell people that I am going, I often get the question, ‘why?’.

Well, I go because it only takes one time….

One time to not know this stuff and I will regret it forever.

Is it what I really want to be doing on a Saturday afternoon?  NOPE.

If it weren’t for Devon and Braxton I most likely wouldn’t go all that much.

But they are my 5-6-7.  Everything I do ties back to how it will improve their spirits and their lives.

If you don’t know your reasons behind your decisions, then you will likely never stick with anything that will force you outside your comfort zone.

I go because:

  • It gives me peace of mind
  • I get to learn new things which is always fun for my brain
  • I get to be the student and the novice

And once I get going, I have a lot of fun.  The hardest part is just scheduling this all important but not urgent activity.

What have you been putting off that is important but not urgent?

I am betting quite a few things.

‘Important but not urgent’ is where we should spend most of our time if we want to live a WHOLE life.

Here’s an important but not urgent opportunity for you.  Our Fall Sweepstakes: http://vyper.io/c/608

There are only 4 more days to enter.  I believe this is something that will change the lives of 4 lucky winners, but you’ll have to apply if you want that chance…
