Mind Mapping (7)


Mental Toughness Monday: Punch Your Fear in the Face

As I was walking with Emma last week, I was reflecting on fear and mind mapping.  Fear comes from the reptilian brain, the oldest part of the brain that is focused purely on survival.

However, that part of your brain will react only in the instant when it perceives survival to actually be threatened.  The problem is when you continue to take in information that is activating this part of the brain.

It’s a problem because then your human brain starts to develop scripts and stories about the future and all the doom and gloom and ‘what ifs’. 

As I’ve said many times before, fear exists only in the future and the future doesn’t exist.  I know it’s a mind blowing concept, but I want you to meditate on that for a minute today.  

And, give your fear a punch in the face today and put it back where it belongs.

Yes, He Nearly Cra**ed Himself

A little over a week ago, I was at Newell Strength, catching up with a few old friends/clients.

 

One of the guys wanted to know about the upcoming Testosterone seminar we are having next week and it was just totally blowing his mind.

 

And then, the conversation turned to his current fasting protocol and then I inquired about his ‘juice’.

 

In case you aren’t familiar, the ‘juice’ is 32-40 oz of water with some different salts mixed in.

 

If you aren’t used to having adequate amounts of salt in your body, then it is very common that when you do increase those levels that you may get a bout or two of diarrhea.

 

Yes, you see, water follows salt.  And most people are so deficient in sodium that it can have this effect when you first increase it.

 

But, Mr. X had one bout of this and then just threw in the towel. Because….Mr. X only craps at his home base.

 

Which threw a wrinkle into his schedule the day this happened because he had to hurry home to do his #2 and then get back to work.

 

The better solution would have been to cut the dose down.

 

Anyway, sodium is the #1 supplement you can use and it ain’t gonna cost you an arm and a leg.

My Bleeding Heart

I remember 30 years ago, as a young elementary school student, getting so excited on Valentine’s Day for the classroom celebration.

 

I loved giving out the cards to all my classmates and getting those tasty little candy hearts to munch on.

 

Anyhow, happy Valentine’s Day!

 

A few weeks ago, we had our 2nd ‘How to Have the Healthiest Heart Around’ seminar.  It was a great success once again.

 

Dr. Andrey and I were texting in the days that followed about how this was a worthy mission, one that we were both passionate about because it could literally save and transform lives.

 

When you find a mission, you make it work, you dig deep, you realize that you don’t have to do anything….you GET to carry it forth.

 

If you find a big enough reason for your mission, pursuing it in the face of fatigue and resistance is simple.  You don’t have to dig up willpower, it’s a part of you.

 

What makes your heart bleed?

Baking Soda Brownies

11 days ago, we had some of our closest friends over the Super Bowl.

 

It’s become a great excuse to hang out over the years.

 

Anyhow, in preparation, Devon was baking and I was getting some other stuff ready around the house.

 

The boys were at my parents and as I was getting ready to go pick them up for the party, Devon asked me if I could get her out the powdered sugar.

 

I went and grabbed a bag out of the pantry and I thought it was the correct stuff.  It was a bag within a bag so I couldn’t read the label.

 

Devon told me that it wasn’t the right stuff so I went back in and grabbed a big ziplock bag with what I thought was powdered sugar.  It had no label since we had transferred it from the original bag to a ziplock.

 

I didn’t know nor did I care, I was just looking forward to the Blonde Brownies she was attempting to make since they are one of my favorite desserts of hers.

 

Well, fast forward a couple of hours and people started to dig into the brownies.  I was over near the fireplace with a beer when I saw the look of disgust on the faces of Devon and those that had taken a big tasty bite of the brownies.

 

Followed by them running to the sink and nearest bathroom to gag and spit it out.

 

Devon looked at me and said, ‘YOU!!!!’  Me?  Apparently the second bag I had brought out was baking soda, not powdered sugar. Ha!

 

So, rather than 4 cups of powdered sugar they got a nice big taste of 4 cups of baking soda.

I guess the moral is….measure twice, cut once.

Member of the Month: James Ghanim

James first started at Newell Strength 13 months ago.  At the time, he wasn’t sure what he was going to get out of his trial, but after 30 days, he was hooked.

 

His transformation has been an inspiration.  James has lost 60 pounds, more than cut his body fat percentage in half and become incredibly strong! Just last week he was able to press the 100 pound dumb bells!

 

And he will be the first one to tell you that he was not a ‘gym guy’.

 

Enjoy and be inspired by James’ success!

The Early Years of Newell Strength

The idea for Newell Strength was first planted in my head in 2006.

 

I never knew what it would become, only that it ‘could become’.

 

And when I need to get centered again, to rediscover my mission, I find that reminiscing about the early days and my ‘why’ often does the trick.

 

Remember, where your attention goes, energy flows and results will follow.

 

Reminisce about the early day is exactly what I did in today’s episode.  You can take a listen here: www.newellstrength.com/single-post/2020/02/11/The-Early-Years-of-Newell-Strength

Big Trees and Big Dreams

Two weekends ago, a buddy came over on Saturday morning and we went to work on a monster of a tree that had fallen some time back near our creek.

 

It’s a big damn tree and thank God that it didn’t fall towards the house!

 

Anyhow, I worked on it throughout the summer here and there and for some reason, on this particular Saturday, I was having trouble slicing through.

 

Now, a chainsaw is a relatively new toy for me, I got it last spring when another tree had fallen on the property and I realized this was an investment that would pay dividends.

 

Well, buzzing through this tree, my buddy finally says, I think your saw is going dull, because that’s a big blade and it should be zipping through this.

 

To which I asked why it would have become dull so quickly.  He said, ‘It’s the tree, it’s a monster.’

 

Now, I could have continued to struggle for the months ahead working on this tree with a dull blade or I could simply sharpen my saw.

 

I chose to sharpen my saw.

 

In life, we need to know when we need to sharpen our saw, which could mean gaining more skills or taking a rest period.

 

I believe it was Abe Lincoln that said if you gave him a day to cut down a tree he’d have spent ¾ of the day sharpening his axe.
