Life (147)


Can You Believe He’s 5 Already?

Five years ago today, Braxton was born.

 

People always say that time flies when you have kids and boy are they right.  

 

I learn as much or more from him as he does from me.  Be present with the children you have in your life, they are wonderful and observant and see the beauty in everything.  

 

One of the affirmations I use in the mornings is, ‘I will always keep the child within me alive’. 

 

One of the best ways to do that is to be around young kids.  

 

Even if they aren’t yours.

 

I love him (and Tank and Little Warrior) so much that it hurts, but that’s a blessing.

 

Happy birthday Brax!

Emma is a Rockstar

About 2 weeks ago, I had Emma on one of my life weekly videos because that’s just the way things shook out.  

And although I thought the message was on point, Emma stole the show.  People kept commenting on her and how precious she was.  

Maybe just seeing Emma that day was all that people needed.  Seeing her smile with her big baby eyes is enough to make anyone smile, ear to ear.  

A buddy of mine actually pulled me aside the next day to thank me about the video, nothing to do with Emma, but the words.  It completely turned around a funk he was going through and after listening for the 3 minutes, he went inside and gave his wife a big hug and the funk was no more.

 

Every message means different things to different people.  

 

Take what is useful and discard the rest.

Change is the Only Constant in Your Life

About 12 years ago, I learned from my Coach, Scott Abel, at the time, that the one thing people fear most is change, yet change is the only constant in life.  

 

Isn’t that ironic?

 

Yet, it’s important for you to remember that the change isn’t random, it’s driven. 

 

Everything that happens in the universe follows the law of cause and effect.  Nothing escapes this law.

 

Take a listen to today’s episode to gain a deeper understanding of how this can empower you.

Are You Aware of Your Internal Drive?

A few years ago, I heard Professor first explain the concept of the apple tree in the middle of a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lesson.  

 

‘The apple seed wants to become an apple.  It has an innate intelligence.  It must become the tree, sprout branches and so forth until it can manifest as an apple.’

 

When we examine a tree, we understand that concept.  

 

Now, transpose that into your life.  What is your internal drive? You are becoming something and that something is an outward manifestation of some underlying power.

 

That power is the attention you have on a day in and day out basis as well as what you are envisioning for your life.  

 

Your life has its own ‘apple’ but unlike the apple tree, you have choices.

 

But you can only create the ability that you know you are the creator.

 

You may have to read this a few times to internalize it.

Finally, We Found Her

4 weeks ago, on our final hike in New Hampshire, we were just getting started when Mateena ran off.  

No big deal, they run off a little bit on our hikes but always come right back.  No doubt she was chasing something or smelled food.  

Anyhow, after about 10 minutes, Devon started to get a little nervous.  

We split up, along with Frank and Alise, our friends that were with us and eventually found her.  She had gone back to the river near where we parked (she’s a smart girl).

Anyhow, it made me think of the preciousness of life.  Lately I’ve been focusing on her and Dax more, a dog’s life is much easier to grasp as far as the finiteness.  

When I picked Mateena up from our breeder 7 years ago, my first thought was about how fast her life would go before our very eyes, 10-12 years if we are lucky.  

Every day you must think about the finite life that is presented to you.  Urgency helps you live more fully.  It’s not morbid, it’s to keep you from just going through the motions.

 

Sometimes losing your pup helps put things into perspective for you.

Imagine That You are About to Head into a Real Gladiators Arena

Elise doesn’t have to imagine this, she lives it.  On today’s episode of Hillsborough and Hunterdon REAL, I chat with my friend and Newell Strength client, Elise Reed.  Elise had a title fight on Thursday, August 13th in MMA for the Cage Fury Organization.  Not only is Elise a future MMA star, she is a business owner and is incredibly passionate and determined in life.  Find out what the final week of prep is like, how she got started in MMA and what a pro fighter’s mindset is like as their big day approaches. You can find out more about Kickside Martial Arts by going to their website at www.kicksideMA.com.

Free Fear or Freedom Over Fear?

When I was 7, I had the stark reality of a childhood friend dying.  It was almost too much for me to comprehend and it put me into a hyperfocus on death for the next several years.

But believe it or not, I think that this gave me a big advantage in life.  

For one, I live with urgency, because I know life is not infinite, at least this ‘5-sense’ reality isn’t.  Now, I don’t live with urgency in the sense that I am hurried, I live with urgency in that I want to experience a lot and achieve my mission.

Secondly, I have been able to connect the dots with death to my mastery of Mind Mapping and I realize that although fear is a real feeling, I can usually tamp it down until the point of acting in the face of it and not backing down when it wants to look me in the eyes. 

The mainstream media sells you ‘free fear’.  They know the brain is hyper focused on all things fear so it drives ratings.  The question is, are you going to choose free fear or freedom over fear?

It’s a matter of focus and attention.

P.S-My new book is finally out on Amazon.  It’s all things fasting, from my point of view.  If you want a world class tutorial and ‘how to’ with my system of fasting, then you pick up a copy of  the book.  And if you like it, please leave a review.  https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Diet-Unconventional-Approach-Lasting/dp/0578687372/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kyle+newell&qid=1592831921&s=books&sr=1-2

P.P.S-Now that we are taking new clients once again, we are opening the doors for July to 12 new trial members.  This is just what the doctor ordered for you if you’ve been locked in, with little outdoor time, not enough physical activity and not enough fun.  You can apply for a spot at this link and Coach Dana will be reaching out to you.  https://hillsborough.newellstrength.com/jumpstart




Your Heart and Mind Must Align

About 5 weeks ago, I had one of the most amazing weeks of my life.  

That was when we opened Newell Strength, despite the lockdown.

Did it make logical sense?  Not necessarily.  

But I wasn’t following my brain, I was listening to my heart.  And when you listen to your heart, you cannot go wrong.  When you ignore your heart, you almost always go wrong.

I knew that my decision was based in pureness of heart and therefore I had nothing to fear.  

And the results spoke for themselves.

Make sure your mind aligns with your heart, not the other way around.

P.S-We are now accepting trial members once again.  If you’re ready for a change and want to start shaking off the rust, weight and low energy of the past few months of quarantine, then you’ve found your answer.  You can apply for our 30-day trial here and a Coach will reach out to  you.  




Most People at 25 and are Buried by 75

A week ago, I heard the same message twice within the span of an hour, which means I was being spoken to by the Universe.

The first message was from some random video on YouTube during my walk and the second was from a written excerpt from a MLK speech.

The gist: If you have a calling at 38, as Dr. King did, and refused to do anything about it, yet you live until you’re 90, you really died at 38.  

Life is a gift and with that gift you have gifts that you are supposed to share.  

Is it scary?  Yes.  But if you share gifts despite what you think others may think (ego and reputation) and you listen to your gut, then you are truly living.

What have you been holding back on that keeps yanking at your heart string?

Your Path is Your Path

Over the past few months, something has become even more abundantly clear to me than it was prior.  

We all have our own lessons and own path to walk in this life.  We are all here to experience life in a different way.  

My path is not worse or better than your path.  It’s just different.  

This means that we will not agree on a lot of stuff and that’s okay.  If you are here to learn algebra and I am here to learn biology 101, not too much will align.  It’s not supposed to.

Listen and learn from others.  You might get a different point of view to add to your path.

Afterall, the teacher will appear when the student is ready.
