Einstein said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
Warren Buffett said, “Complexity is the enemy of execution.”
These are principles that apply to any area of your life. Your business, finances and in this case your body.
We all know the basics behind how to get the healthy fit body we all desire and deserve. Yet why do so few people get to be a living example of the amazing potential the body has?
For most people it is because they are so overwhelmed by the task they don’t even start. Their desire to do it perfectly triggers them to make the process more complex than it needs to be.
I had the privilege of speaking with Mimi Kuster on the fundamentals of fitness and health and she echoed the same sentiments as Einstein and Warren.
Keep it simple and don’t over complicate it. We have enough complication going on in life as it is. Why not keep it as simple as possible in this super important area of our life so we can have the energy, strength, vitality and good looks we deserve.
We are blessed to be alive during the most abundant time in human history.
There is more food, money and resources available on the planet for each person than ever. The reason this is all possible is because of TECHNOLOGY!
Hate it or love it technology is only going to become more prevalent in all of our lives. In fact it’s been around since the great apes. What technology did they use? They used sticks to fish ants out of their antholes in the ground.
The question is are you going to keep up with the increasing rate of technological change so you can capitalize on the abundance of opportunities that are coming.
It doesn’t matter that you missed the first wave of the internet, the beginning of google ads or YouTube or when Bitcoin was only $1. Don’t let your regret for missed opportunities stop you from anticipating new ones that lay right around the corner.
Richard Branson said, “Opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.”
The technology revolution is only in it’s beginning stages and you still have time to catch the wave….or should I say tsunami that is inevitably going to transform the world even more than it already has.
The gap between haves and have nots is not going to be about money like it has been throughout history. The gap is going to come down to whether or not you know how to navigate the new world that awaits us. The way to navigate it is by knowing how the world works and being able to contribute on a high level because the jobs that don’t require much critical thinking are being outsourced to things that perform way better than any human can…..ROBOTS.
I’ve never been the most technologically savvy person. In fact I despised technology up until a few years ago when I realized how important it is in our lives and all the amazing things I can do with it to benefit my life and others.
One of the people I learn from about technology is Sam Bhatti. He is self-taught and is one of the most all around adept people I know with technology. I had the chance to sit down with him in London where he shared with me some of his technological tools and strategies to save time and be better.
I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as I did creating it.
Every morning when Steve Jobs woke up he looked in the mirror and asked himself, “If today were the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m about to do today?” It created an empowering sense of urgency to use his time wisely because he reminded himself not to take a moment of life for granted.
On my recent trip to Rome I visited the Colosseum where countless battles were watched as entertainment. Gladiators and fierce wild animals from all over the world were matched up against one another in battles to the death. This once magnificent arena is also falling apart as time passes. It reminded me of how precious life is and how important it is to truly live life to the fullest each day.
The necklace I wear is a reminder to live life now and not wait. What is it you truly want to do in your heart?
Do you want to travel to another country? All over the world?
Do you want to start your own business?
Do you want to learn to play the guitar?
Do you want to be a photographer?
There is a way to make your dreams a reality and the best time to start is now.
If you’re working hard to create a result in your life but struggle to make it happen. There’s one reason that’s holding you back.
We have an internal blueprint for every area of our life that is the cause for what we have currently produced in life.
Everything you have created so far in life in your health, intimate relationship, finances and business are a byproduct of your belief systems.
The crazy part is most people are totally oblivious about the beliefs that are determining every action and decision they make. They are walking around unconscious and at the whim of their past conditioning and circumstances life throws at them.
Here’s a short clip from a talk I did with the Gracie Brazilian jiu jitsu team:
Nothing with change until you change.
In order to do something you haven’t done you have to be someone you haven’t been!
Here are a few simple steps to shift a disempowering belief:
1.) Create awareness. What’s an area of life you are struggling with? What is a situation you find yourself not being your best? There is a limiting belief there. Write down whatever comes up.
2.) Question the limiting belief. Is it true?
Example: It’s bad to make a lot of money
Is it true? Are there people who do great work in the world who make billions of dollars?
Yes there are lots of people who do and impact the world. They are a force for good and use their money as a tool to create empowering change.
3.) Create a new empowering belief.
Example: Money is a powerful tool to make the world a better place and create positive change.
4.) Look for reference experiences to support that new belief.
Were there times you’ve seen money used in a good way by someone who had a lot of it?
Have you ever used your money to help others?
Find someone living by the empowering belief and be around them as the experience will challenge your current limiting belief system.
5.) Condition it.
Write the new belief and put it on your wall.
Repeat it out loud and engage your body and voice to drive it deep in your nervous system so you never forget.
