Winners Do This..

Way back in 2007, while driving to and from my teaching gig, I would listen to audio cds.

 

In fact, as I write this, I am relistening to a lot of those CDs as I drive around town each week.

 

Well, one of the guys, Dan Kennedy, was fond of making a point about being able to ‘clear the calculator’ quickly.

 

We all have ‘bad things’ happen to us.  Call them setbacks or obstacles, it doesn’t matter what the label is.  Average people allow these things to take sooo much time to overcome.

 

Winners, on the other hand, have an almost uncanny and superhero-like ability to ‘clear the calculator’ and forge ahead.

 

This is in large part because winners are masters at reframing and they expect there to be obstacles along the way.

 

Both of these are just ways of thinking and that is a skill.  All skills can be learned, so….

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?

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.

He Only Had 5 Years Left to Live

A few weeks ago, I was doing the weekly video with GL when I sensed that he was veering off course.  He’d be the first to tell you so.

 

When we got to why remembering why he started, he said it was to lose weight.

 

On the very surface, yes.

 

But weight loss in and of itself isn’t the driver.  What type of pain and suffering is the extra weight costing you?

 

I dug and dug and then he said if he had continued on his path when he started with our sweepstakes a few years ago, he may have had only 20 years left to live, to which I said, ‘Dude, more like 5! You were 400 pounds and climbing!’

 

Sometimes we all need a bigger dose of the truth. Sugar coating never helps anyone move forward.

 

Where in your life do you need more brutal honesty and ‘violent’ accountability?  We all need it….

I Have a Confession

One month ago, I sat in the baby room at our church with Emma when Brent, our pastor, was speaking about fasting as a part of his sermon.

 

He had mentioned Newell Strength a few times since the topic was about forming new habits, being that we had just entered the new year.

 

After the sermon, Devon and I went up to say hi as we always do and I said, ‘Brent, I’d be happy to do something fitness related for the community up here if you’d like.’

 

Bam!  Within minutes I had committed, he was putting the info in the very next sermon that was starting in 20 minutes.

 

They got a selfie picture of me and we were off to the running.

 

The lesson here is that I was stepping out of my comfort zone and I took action on an idea long before I even knew the details.

 

I didn’t know how I was going to do it, when I would fit it in, how I would speak to the people that joined my life group.  But it didn’t matter, the idea struck me and I spoke up.

 

In life, you cannot wait for all the lights to be green.  Just begin.

Member of the Month: Mike Double V

I remember sitting down with Mike roughly a year ago and listening to why he was a good fit for our Ripped Dads contest.

 

He had been struggling with energy, weight gain and type 2 diabetes for some time.

It’s been amazing to witness his transformation both physically and mentally the past year.  He has become a HUGE part of the tribe at Newell Strength and he continues to inspire others as they look for that torchbearer to follow.

 

We are so inspired by Mike, keep it up!

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

Monday Mindset: Mamba Mentality

A little over two weeks ago, the great Kobe Bryant passed, along with his daughter and 7 others.

 

It is tragic to say the least.

 

It really shook me to the core, I spent a good part of that Sunday night crying.  My love for basketball and my admiration for this guy and my compassion for a fellow father, all boiled into thinking about how he was taken too soon from this earth.

 

But there are higher powers than my mortal mind.  We have to learn from tragedies such as this one.

 

One of the things that inspired me so much about Kobe was his mindset, known as the Mamba Mentality.  He gave us that gift, that torch.  It didn’t matter if you weren’t a basketball player, the Mamba Mentality was about never giving in, never giving up, no matter what.

 

That is part of his legacy.  He gave us that, it’s up to us whether we cement it home.

 

Listen, we all are gonna die.  What gift are you going to leave behind?  And no, you don’t have to be famous to leave a legacy.

How Dare I

12 days ago, Devon was out to work early in the morning.

 

And on the way out, she asked me to be sure to stir her turkey chilli periodically throughout the day.

 

Sure, no problem I told her.

 

Well, 7 or so hours later, she came home.

 

Did I stir the chilli?  Nope, totally slipped my mind.

 

The ingredients cooked, but not the way they should have.  The corn was still sitting right on top.

 

You might have all the knowledge you need.  In fact, I know you do.  Information is not the problem.

 

This issue is in knowing how to put all the right pieces together.

 

That’s where Coaching with a capital C comes in.

 

Know when you need to seek Coaching, because if information were the only problem, then a quick Google search would solve all your problems.

Here’s a Terrible Diet I Wrote

10 years ago, I wrote the diet for current Newell Strength client, Tammy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She sent it to me a few weeks ago after we were reminiscing about the original days of Newell Strength.

 

I always get a kick out of some of my early writings, programs and diets because I look back at them and cringe.

 

It’s not that I didn’t know anything, its that I didn’t know any better.

 

A lot of today’s fake fitness experts might look at this and think it’s actually pretty good.

 

Remember this, you reserve the right to change your mind….

 

If you are constantly learning and growing.
