Life (120)


A Breakthrough for the Boys

Back in July, we moved Tank into Munchies room in anticipation of Emma taking over Tank’s room.

 

It took some getting used to for them and us.

 

Anyhow, its been pretty smooth sailing, Munch sleeps in the bottom bunk of his bunk bed and Tank still sleeps in a crib.

 

Well, not long ago, I heard a commotion late at night.  I went down to inspect and Munchie had pushed the toy chest over to the crib and helped Tank climb up and out.  The two weasels had figured out an escape plan.

 

The next night, at 2 in the morning, once again, I  hear a commotion.  I go down, bright lights from the room are turned on and Munchie once again was trying to help Tank escape.  I nipped that attempt in the bud.

 

Tank couldn’t have done it himself.  But with the help of his brother, it was possible.

 

This is a lot like how Coaching works.  A Coach is someone that can help you get to a destination  that  you cannot get to  on your own.

 

In this case, Munchie was Tank’s Coach.

There Was a Bird in our Bedroom

2 weeks ago, Devon was out for her morning workout and I was on dad duty.  I was carrying Emma around like a football, Munch was playing with army men and Tank was exploring around the house.

 

All of the sudden, Tank comes over to tell me there was a bird in the bedroom.  I thought it was just Tank being Tank.  But sure enough, there as a bird in our bedroom.

 

Mayhem ensued.

 

The dogs were going crazy, Tank was growling and Munchie was in full nerf-gun mode.

 

It was a great moment, a great memory.

 

If you had asked me the night prior to predict what my 3 wins for the day would have been, bird hunting in the bedroom would not have been one of them.

 

It was such a fluke event (although far from the first time we’ve had a bird in the house!).

 

Life is like that, enjoy the craziness and the fun moments, when it’s all said in done, all we really have is shared moments, memories and experiences.

Essentials of Fasting

As you may have heard, I am very passionate about fasting.  But hey, its not for everyone and that’s okay.

 

If fasting doesn’t interest you, then simply tune  me out, change  the channel so to speak.

 

But if curiosity has gotten the better of you, then tune into today’s episode to see some more of my take on 3 keys to fasting.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2019/12/23/3-Essentials-of-Fasting

Monday Mindset: Resist and It Will Persist

When  I first  started working out seriously, back in my sophomore year of highschool, I was all consumed.

 

I would spend literally hours in the gym, wanting so badly to get bigger and stronger.

 

I knew that with resistance training, I had to overcome the resistance in front of me in order to force my body to grow.

 

In life, what we resist will persist.

 

We need to go into the resistance, it is one of the surest ‘x marks the spot’ on the map of life that I know of.

 

And if you are avoiding something because it  is going to be tough, then that thought will eat at you until you tackle it.

 

Thus, that which you resist will persist.   Resistance training of the mind is a real thing.  Resistance of all forms is there to make us grow, just like I found out nearly 25 years ago when I first started hitting the weights.

 

And if a situation keeps coming up with a different dressing, but the same type of problem, know that it will continue to come up until you overcome the resistance to it.

The Real Reason I Dropped Home Ec

We had an awesome date night not long ago with another couple that used to live 2 townhouses down.

 

The night started with Devon and I going for manny/peddies:).  Yes, I go from time to time…

 

Anyhow, we wanted to socialize a little bit afterwards so we went out for a drink with our friends.  Now, Stacey and I graduated high school together.  We were acquaintances but not friends.

 

Out of nowhere during our relaxing cocktail she says, ‘I thought you were such a jerk in high school and so did all of my friends.’

 

Devon started laughing and so did I, which I followed up with, ‘What did I ever do to you?’

 

There was nothing I did, she took my introverted ways and interpreted them as arrogance and then she also saw that I had a bunch of athlete friends because, well, I was an athlete.

 

I explained to her that I was horribly shy in high school and insecure like many people are.  She reminded me that we shared a home ec class together our freshman year.  That made me think of the home ec class I signed up for my senior year.

 

I only lasted a week because I found out there would be a presentation at the end of the semester and it scared the B-Geezus out of me.  As I said, I was terribly shy and thus petrified to speak in front of others.

 

The teacher found me in the hallway before basketball practice and ripped me a new one, calling me lazy and having ‘senioritis’.  If she only knew…

 

I regret making that decision but like anything, that same lesson continued to appear again and again until I was willing to slay it.  In college, I practiced a 5 minute ‘how to tie a fishing hook’ presentation for weeks because I was so nervous.

 

After college, I enrolled in ToastMasters and now I have zero issue with public speaking.  That which we resist, will persist.

 

Deal with the lessons of life as they come your way because, well, they won’t go away until you embrace them.

What Do You Mean ‘Don’t Ice’ Your Injury?

6 years ago, I came across some compelling research on the healing process for the human body.

 

And it went against the grain, just like so many things that we teach at Newell Strength.

 

What’s that you ask?

 

It was the idea of not icing an injury.  I could go on to why that is, but that’s not the point of this piece.

 

The point is that we are all affected by cognitive dissonance to some degree; this idea that we are so entrenched in a belief that we cannot fathom the other side and refuse to see the other side.

 

Well, if there’s one thing I am good at, it is ‘emptying my cup’ and examining all sides of an issue, implementing and experimenting and then making my own conclusions.  With my second knee injury, I didn’t ice one time, in fact, I did the opposite: heat, compression, movement and so forth.

 

I had a record recovery and my doc was shocked.

 

Last week, a good buddy texted me an article from a big publication about ‘How we should no longer ice an injury’. He said, ‘Look at that, you were right.’

 

In life, don’t be married to too many things, keep an open mind and be like water, test stuff out, teach it to learn it and continue to grow.

Way Back Day: Everyone Has a Plan Until…

Growing up, I was a BIG Mike Tyson fan.

 

‘Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face,’ is one of my favorite Tyson quotes.

 

In today’s throwback video, I discuss this concept in my old office.

 

Hopefully it resonates with you!

 

The perfect time to start is now….

How to Turn Lemons into Lemonade

As far back as I can remember, I had an  optimistic mindset.  I  would always look for the positive in situations and in other people.

 

I took this way of thinking and ran with it.  In fact, one of the top skills in life and one that I teach whenever I get a chance is the skill of reframing.

 

In every situation, there is a positive.  No matter how bad it seems in the time being.

 

In today’s episode, I talk about how I flipped my horrific knee injury into something that has helped hundreds of people all over  the world.

 

Yes, you can turn lemons into lemonade, no matter how dire the circumstances seem.

Great Goals Attract

Have you ever had a friend set such a big goal that you became excited just by being exposed to it?

 

Almost as if your first thought were something like, ‘They’re crazy, who do they think they are?’

 

And then it transitions to inspiring you?

 

There’s a reason for this way of thought.  When you first feel resistance towards another person’s BIG goals, it’s because it exposes your limited way of thinking at the current moment.

 

Once you get over that, it will magnetize you because great goals attract and put off great energy, while mediocre goals attract little energy.

 

So imagine what having no goals does….
