Episode: #48 The Mind Pump guys on how to build great partnerships that can change the world

Who: Today's guests are the Mind Pump Media team. This interview is fun, informative and full of double entendres! The guys are the cutting edge of the fitness industry and really helping people transform themselves by cutting through the BS and fakeness of the fitness industry and actually providing helpful advice that can work for you to help you achieve your goals.

As the guys describe themselves: "MindPump is an online radio show/podcast that has been described as Howard Stern meets fitness. It is sometimes raw, sometimes shocking and is always entertaining and informative. Your hosts, Sal Di Stefano, Adam Schafer and Justin Andrews have over 40 years of combined fitness experience as personal trainers, club managers, IFBB fitness competitors and fitness thought leaders.

The fitness world is filled with charlatans and snake oil salesmen pushing the latest and greatest (and sometimes downright dangerous) workout programs, supplements and faux science on the unsuspecting masses. Sal, Adam and Justin use MindPump as a platform to shed the light of TRUTH on health, fitness and a host of other topics."

In this interview, we discuss what makes Mind Pump so unique and successful and focus on how to build great partnerships and friendships that can help you change the world. 

And yes, before anyone asks, the intro was recorded when I only had my temp use mic and the quality is shocking!

Some things to reflect on

  • Mind Pump is working to cut out the myths and bullshit that exist in the fitness industry today to give useful, actionable and enjoyable fitness help. Mind Pump doesn't preach, they share the modalities, the pros, and negatives of everything and what works for you and provide 'radical honesty' to disrupt the bs the industry has been building.
  • To become fit - "A lot of things work but nothing works for everybody and the things that do work, won't work for you all the time", how is your approach working truthfully? Do you need to adapt it or change your approach to suit?
  • Helping clients is about problem-solving through the bs and mass of misinformation and helping them find the methods that work for them. There are no cookie cutter approaches to success that work for everyone. 
  • When working with a client, it is more about how you communicate things to the client then what you are communicating to them
  • Undissolved egos can cause a massive problem when trying to form and develop a team - can you let others lead? Do you need to be the 'main guy' in the team? Are you really trying to benefit the team or do you have a 'scarcity mindset' and just looking out for yourself?
  • "Partnerships are like marriage"
  • Own what you are not good at, accept it and utilise what you can provide and assist the team with. The best teams work because each person provides assistance to the team with something that is otherwise lacking. Not everyone can be the best at everything. Find out what you are good at and provide that to the team and the partnerships.
  • "Your true net worth is your network" is a statement that I really agree with. As they say, you are the average of the five people you hang around with most. Is your network something you are proud of? If not, what are you going to do about it?
  • Don't be afraid to try or go somewhere new or a topic you haven't covered or considered. Challenge yourself. Try it and see how things go, try and evolve. 
  • Some great viewpoints for what will help you become the best version of yourself the fastest: "Be comfortable with being uncomfortable", "Make friends with what you don't know", "Be Ok with being wrong". 
  • "Stop focusing on the things you are not good at, focus on what you are good at and be fucking great". You can't be great at everything, stop beating yourself up about things you aren't good at and instead use this philosophy to become great by "know your strengths, know what you are good at and be great at it". 
  • "Seek out the opposite viewpoint" to succeed and listen to them with an open mind and either come out with a stronger opinion or change your mind. Either way you will win as you will either strengthen your understanding or be wrong and learn from it.
  • The only person you should compare yourself to is how you were yesterday. Always be looking to better youself today compared to yesterday.

Episode: #47 Sunjeev Prasad on using your style to tap into your true potential  

Who: Today's guest is Sunjeev Prasad, the founder of Street Gentleman, who helps ambitious men feel more confident, by teaching them how to dress well and know what is stylish. As he states 'The goal is to ultimately make men feel confident and empowered. Men's style happens to be the vehicle for achieving this. When you look great, you feel great, and when you feel great that translates into performing great -- both in the workplace and in your personal life.'

In this interview, we discuss fashion, style and how to use both to tap into your true potential in all aspects of your life.

Some things to reflect on

  • Fashion can help build our identity - what is your fashion and style saying about you, your image, and identity?
  • Your style is not just what you wear, it how you hold yourself, how you walk, how you act
  • Masculine men take risks and put themselves out there to succeed in their goals
  • Working with other men in a mastermind group can help you delve deep into the masculinity of the members and remove the masks they have been hiding behind to become their true selves
  • It is never too late, regardless of your current situation, romantic overview, history, age, race etc to start improving your style and becoming the man you want to be
  • "We live in a culture that operates on snap judgments" - people make assumptions on how you look and attribute your abilities and their beliefs of you on how you look. Your style can open doors for you that were maybe not going to be open currently
  • Consider your fit, complexion, length, and shape when picking clothing that suits you
  • Clothes should be "comfortably snug", it fits your body but doesn't restrict movement
  • You should plan out outfits and batch process the prep work on your outfits, ideally a day before
  • Be open and honest with what you wear, make mistakes, ask for feedback and learn from what works, you don't need to be perfect straight away, but you do need to start to get where you want to go!
  • Pick your friends well and leave those who want to destroy you behind - you are the average of the five people you hang around with
