Be Relentless Podcast Monday Quick Hit 25 – Beat That Drum

be relentless podcast quick hit 25 - beat that drumThis past weekend I was at a business conference. In a lot of ways, business and fitness run parallel. Both require hard work, consistent discipline, and while there’s a lot of flashy stuff out there, there’s also a lot of pretty proven paths to success.

Of course, when you get a bunch of fitness or business people in a room, in this case, fitness business people, you here a lot of talk about “what’s working”. There’s always new ideas being thrown around. It’s easy to get caught up in the hype and want to shake everything up or jump onto a new, shiny program.

Is that really what you need, though?

Maybe yes, maybe not.

Should you change your path?
WHEN should you change your path?
What’s the biggest secret to success that nobody seems to talk about?

I picked up some really great lessons and reminders about those questions this past weekend, and they were definitely not the ones that I expected.

Be Relentless Podcast Quick Hit 24 – LUCK – What It Stands For

be relentless podcast quick hit 24 - luck - what it stands forLUCK

How often do you hear someone say “So and So is lucky!” or “That was a lucky break for you!”?

Now, there’s definitely some examples of luck or good coincidence, but when it comes from people being “lucky” in fitness, business, and many other facets of life, I’ve found that there’s usually something a lot more to it than a simple alignment of stars and planets, or whatever.

I was listening to a Real Estate Podcast (BiggerPockets) and one of the guests had an acronym for LUCK that I had never heard before.

It really hit home and I think it sums it up. Here’s my hot take.

Be Relentless Podcast Episode 37 – Four Lessons From the Best-Worst Time of My Life

New Podcast Episode!

Good times, bad times
You know I had my share…
-Led Zeppelin, “Good Times, Bad Times”

It’s funny.

When I get the chance to talk to people who’ve had some success in their life and I ask them about the best (or at least most valuable experience) in their life they almost always point to something that you could consider the “worst” time of their life.

Maybe they hit rock bottom.

Maybe their world fell apart.

Which is terrible.

But it’s also where they learned how to grow, build, and overcome. It turned into a valuable part of shaping them into who they are today.

Be Relentless Podcast – Monday Quick Hit 23 – Fall In Love With the Process

Allan T worked the process for six weeks, and earned the results!

Let’s be honest. The vast majority of people don’t hit their goals, whether it’s in fitness, business, or life in general.

They end up settling for less.

Now, is it because they’re not smart enough to get to their goals and dreams?

Usually not.

Is it because their goals and dreams aren’t rooted in reality?

Sometimes, but generally not, as most people actually dream pretty small once you boil away the extra.

No, most people fail because the way to their dreams is HARD.

And when it’s hard, they give up.

Why do they give up? Is it because they’ve hit a threshold of suffering that they just can’t manage? Again, maybe, but often times that isn’t the case at all.

They give up because the struggle and suffering that comes with chasing big dreams outmatches their EXPECTATION of what it would be.

So, what’s the answer? Listen and find out!

Be Relentless Podcast – Monday Quick Hit 22 – PCT vs RSF Thought, Which One Governs Your Life?

be relentless podcast quick hit 22The Be Relentless Podcast is back!  I’m excited to get back behind the mic and start it up again.  As you may see, I’ve decided to mix everything onto a single website, the primary Relentless Strength Training site.  If you’d like to go back and listen to old episodes of the podcast (which I’d appreciate) then you can get them on iTunes OR on the original Be Relentless Podcast website, which isn’t going anywhere.

On to today’s episode!  (and yes, I know this is a Monday podcast coming out on a Tuesday, but technical issues…)

Problem-Centered Thought or Relentless Solution Focus…

Which one governs your life?

If you’re like most people, that’s Problem-Centered Thought (PCT). Dr. Jason Selk, author of “Exective Toughness”, instead would have you focus on a Relentless Solution Focus (RSF).

At Relentless, and not just because of the name, we have made this a cornerstone of our Relentless Mindset program. If you’re looking to start turning the ship around, even if it’s inch-by-inch, then you need to be focused on your RSF.
