What You Can Learn From Cam’s Epic Meltdown | A Fresh Look At Trump and Sanders [Alpha Awakened]

cam-newton-meltdownFor all of you who’ve been patiently (or not so) waiting on PART 2 (here’s the wildly popular PART 1) with Alpha Awakened creator and Men’s Coach, John Taylor, we’re back!

NOTE: We get some recording “wobble” in the 22 min range. We fix this quickly. Just hang on. 

Not with PART 2, not yet. Rather, with something you awakening men will be able to sink your psyche right into. You know it’s been said that there is no better teacher than experience. Well, to that I’ll add, a very close second–and much less painful–is to learn from the mistakes of others.

In this episode John and I look into the aftermath of SuperBowl 50 and QB Cam Newton’s famous post-game conference emotional meltdown.

  • Without throwing Cam under the bus, John share what can YOU learn from Cam’s response.
  • What it may or may not suggest about Cam’s in game performance.
  • How your emotions and ability to integrate whatever is going on in your world can lift you up or tear you down.
  • The 4 Stages of Competency / Consciousness. Where are you?

BONUS: A Fresh Perspective on Your Presidential Candidates

Yes, it’s all my fault…

I could not help myself. I had to ask John about how he would read the behaviors and attitudes of our esteemed candidates for President. And yes, it’s very eye-opening.

Dave-G-srunnerIn the late 1990’s David Gluhareff lost over 100 pounds.

KR 54: Life, Death, Love, Money and The Resilience Guy

bill-crash-feb-2011A decade ago, Bill was just an average guy living the 1% life. Married, two great boys, a business that was rocking. It was all systems go…So he believed as he stepped on stage to receive his award for the 40 Under 40, recognizing the winners in the world.

 

Bill-Strong
Bill Gaining Strength

It’s what happened next…Then next, and next that has earned Bill the title of, “The Resilience Guy.” From the collapse of his business, end of his 17 year marriage, and a near death experience…Bill proves it’s not what happens to you but what you do with what happens that matters.

Now, nearing the half century mark, Bill is living the life most men would dare to dream about. It’s a simpler life, less stuff and more meaning. He’s stronger, leaner and more energized–and looks a decade younger than he did a decade ago.

Men, enjoy Bill’s story but listen to the wisdom and listen to your own heart. This is a story about winning, losing, heart break, love, near death and any man, yes you, can learn to flex, flow and conquer every obstacle that gets in your way.

You’ll laugh, you’ll squirm, you’ll celebrate and you’ll feel the strength of knowing what YOU too can do with less then nothing, when the decks are stacked against you…and how to surrender into your strength and come out swinging.. and win.

The 3 Questions of Fitness

3-qs

But… before turning in I was reading one of our favorite books to Lilly, The Three Questions, by Jon J. Muth. It’s based on a story by Leo Tolstoy.

In this book a boy is seeking the answers to the 3 most important questions of life… The answers are quite moving but as I read them tonight I realized they are also the answers so many seek to the often overly
complex pursuit of fitness.

The 3 Questions:

  • - When is the best time to do things?
  • - Who is the most important one?
  • - What is the right thing to do?

After a moving journey the wise turtle tells him that he’s found the answers, quite simply:

“Remember then that there is only one important time, and that time is NOW. The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important
thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side. For these, my dear boy, are the answers to what is most important in this world.” ~ Wise Turtle

I agree… this is sage advice for a life well lived. But I think we can take it one layer deeper and look at it from the health and fitness perspective.

1. There is only ONE important time, and that is now.

To me that means that the ONLY important time in your pursuit of a healthier, stronger body is NOW. What you did yesterday, the mistake you made last night, none of it matters. Only what you choose NOW. Do you eat the salad or the cake?

Do you train or sit?

NOW is the ONLY time you have to change the path you are on. One NOW at a time. Do the RIGHT thing NOW and watch the NOW’s pile up into a massive result.

2. The MOST important ONE is the ONE you are with.

Yes, and you are the ONE you are always with. YOU are the ONE we most often forget, take for granted and ignore.

As they tell you on the airplanes, in the event of emergency place your oxygen mask on first. You are the most important one. If you let yourself down, you let your family and world down.

3. The most important thing to do is to do GOOD for the ONE.

You got this, right? Yeah, YOU are the ONE and the most important thing you can do is to do good (in this moment) for you, that ONE.

How self supporting is this loop, right? In THIS moment, you must do the RIGHT thing for you, the one. It’s that simple. Make the right choice and make the righter choice tomorrow.

Yes, these my dear Shawn, are the answers to the most important things you can do to transform your body and life.

Episode 51: The Zen of Strength – Mindful Muscle and Meditation

“Weight training is boring!” the masses complain. Ah, but it is nothing but your experience and thus the boring is never out there, but in you.

What is the difference between the effortless ecstasy of a flow state of effective training and the boring, painful, dutiful drudgery of going through the motions of exercise? Listen in to this episode and find out how you can get into the ZONE, the deeply enjoyable Zen of Strength state.

Much like the state of FLOW, reaching this nirvana of synchronicity of body, mind and spirit is anything but an accident. With some specific anchors and practices that are found in Focus Intensity Training (F.I.T.) focus, flow and freedom can be yours.

And guess what? Yep, it’s as good for your mind as your body. Meditation, the gateway to mindfulness, need not be reserved for the cushion. The muscle building art of lifting iron hold a unique capacity for reaching a deep, focused, mindful and meditation state. Try it some time…

But first, listen in and learn why, how and what you can do next…

Meditation guru, Jon Kabat-Zinn, says, Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.”
