Onnit's products work!

 

Some things to reflect on

  • Onnit puts forwards the tools to support Total Human Optimization for you for the long-term success
  • "The basic unit of life is the day", get one right and you can build an incredible life. "Each day is judged on it's own accord".
  • "Make it about a lifestyle rather than a crash diet" - make it a workable habit for success
  • Aubrey saw massive growth and transformation when he started to live his purpose rather than just live - what is your purpose and how can you start living towards it?
  • "We are creatures of momentum", once we start moving, it is hard to stop!
  • "Masculinity isn't tied to a gender". We all have both energies inside ourselves and how we tackle the world. A man is "a force for order" a female is a "force of surrender ... and creator".
  • A tribe is a reason to fight above ourself, we are designed to be part of a tribe and fight for one another
  • "How do you know yourself unless you test yourself?". You need pressure to learn about yourself. Lack of knowing creates insecurity that others will notice.
  • You can always own your reaction and actions to what happens. You can own every aspect of your day and begin again when things go wrong. 
  • Stop wasting time, learn something, expand your mind and succeed. There is no excuse to waste time!
  • We all have demons and dark impulses etc - it's part of being human. Stop hating yourself. Be open and honest, really reflect on yourself to start going places.
  • The motivation to change needs to come from a place of love rather than lust, fear or desire. Learn to read where it comes from and you'll know if it's your ego or your real desire.
  • You will need to start the process of being open and vulnerable first, but it will be worth it. 
  • You are only responsible for your own life, effort and best, it's all we are only really responsible for.
  • Kids are much better mimickers than learners in the traditional sense.
  • "It is possible to be truly happy and in your control". You have way more than you will ever know ... you will be shocked at how much potential you will have to enjoy this life.

The Basics

 

Episode: #45 Mark Bell on intelligence, creativity and becoming the best version of yourself

Who: Mark Bell is the founder of Super Training Gym, Power Magazine and the inventor of the Sling Shot. I'm also a pro powerlifter who has totaled 2601 at 275. Mark's mission is to empower those who seek to improve their lives through fitness. He states that regardless of age, gender, or your weight - the only true trait that matters is heart and determination. His products are created to help you achieve your goals inside and outside the gym. As he says, Strength is never a weakness and weakness is never a strength.

In this interview, we discuss his philosophy on life, intelligence, creativity, business advice, and how you can become the best version of yourself. I have been a big fan of Mark for years and it was superb to have him on as a guest. We cover a lot of non-training topics in this one and it will blow you away as Mark is a very deep guy with a lot of advice gems.

 Some things to reflect on

  • His mission is to make the world a better place to lift and to feel the same way about fitness as him - helping the user find their own version of getting stronger
  • "Dream harder than you work"
  • Don't give up on yourself, self-doubt is OK, giving up is not!
  • You have to be forward thinking and thinking big, you need to 'put the cart before the horse'. You need to be creative and planning ahead, you may need to drag the cart yourself for the first while trying to build the idea but eventually, it will take off and others will help pull the cart too
  • An awakening can be done via personal development, it doesn't need to be a massive event, it can be brought about by education
  • What you do now, can help mold and better your life in the future, start now to change your life for the better, regardless of the starting point and how small it is
  • "We become our very own thoughts" - what we think about we become, ensure your thoughts aim to better you, rather than destroy yourself
  • "We all have self-talk... following through on our self-talk is important". It's easy to think it but harder to do it. Do it and you'll be amazed where it will take you.
  • Some of life's worst moments can be a learning experience, and allow you to understand and help others - whatever you are doing, just be mindful of what is happening, be wise and honest with yourself and the situation
  • You are the average of the five people you mainly hang around with, what they do, you will tend to act similar, pick wisely! Mark has built a strong inner circle of friends that help make him a better man
  • You want to progressively overload your life, to take on more work, to push yourself more and evolve and improve yourself. Have some time when you shut off the phone and the outside world and work on yourself.
  • Physical activity can allow you to enter a heightened state of understanding and mental capacity
  • "Inspire ... don't destruct". "Be mindful ... be paying attention". "Help other people". 
  • Always consider "how is this helping me and how is this hurting me" when you are doing anything to see if the action is worth it or will it hurt you. Then choose wisely! This may transform your life!
