Letting Off Steam
Do you get triggered off of small things? Are you annoyed all the time? Are you looking for a reason to explode on someone? Then look in the mirror at yourself - and show up all the time as the best version of yourself! Seth talks about seeing a window being open in his son's room - and how he handled it hearkened him back to the energy he displayed once his son showed sincere contrition. He then thought back at the times he would be angry at the smallest things, and how he flew off the handle. Your anger at something so small in the now could lead into more contentious moments for you later. It is a simple matter of managing stress. Perspective is the key - and if you practice it, you will own more of your power in the process. You have the power to choose your reactions. You don't have to hurt your subordinates, your family, your friends - or yourself - in flying off the handle. The Bible says, "Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind ..." Transform your thinking to handle anger and stress in a much more composed fashion. Your life will be a whole lot better because of it.

Push ... Judiciously
Do you put a lot of pressure ony ourself to perform? Is it always about being bigger, better, faster and stronger? Are you amped in everythibng you do? Chances are you will crash after a while ... and that's not good. Seth talks about balancing family time with other aspects of life. He talks about the times when the pedal needs to be pushed. Then, there were other times where the pedal needs to be eased. There are times you need to go hard,f ast, strong, long. Then - you need to gather rest so you can recharge and refuel. You need to find the correct balance in life. You do need to work ... no question. However, you don't have to go so hard to the point you 'flatline'. You do need to push - but you decide how hard, are fast, how strong and how long. Know this: If you push hard in your workouts and work with no breaks - the energy for your family and faith would be depleted - and it would not benefit you in the long run. Change your thoughts, and it will change your actions. Change your actions, and your results will change. Don't always floor it in life. Go hard ... but give your body some rest from time-to-time. Everyone - including your own body - will thank you later.

Being Real With Yourself

How do you handle when things don't go on schedule? What is your plan (if you have one) to attack your day? Do you want your life to always be in order no matter what?

Does it make you sour? Is it something you wish never took place? Well, the unfortunate hapenstance of life is that it always presents an obstacle you didn't see coming.

Passing The Buck
Have you set a goal, but are frustrated you aren't going to reach it? Is your countenance changed because ofthe missed goal you set? Do you take it out on others because of it? Well stop passing the buck - now! Seth goes into detail as to when he set a weight goal target. He came close but missed it and, as a side effect for his missed target, he expressed his self anger on others not doing their work. He learned that lesson - and is back on track. The same can be said for you. All of us set targets and don't hit them. It doesn't mean the dight is over. Nor does it mean you failed. It just means you have the oportunity, now, to learn. Take this as a learning process for you to get better, do better and be better. Athletes in sports have to learn how to deal with defeat the right way. You have to learn how to deal with lifde's defeat the right way. Champions hit the weight room, run harder on the track, put in more time in film study. They do anything to get the advantage on their opponent - while becoming a more lethal competitor in the process. What are you doing in become a more lethal opponent to the darkness that celebrates your life's defeats? The only thing that beats a defeat is a try. Get up. Dust yourself off. Pick yourself up. Celebrate the fact that you are still living and that the race is long from over. In fact, your defeat has put you one step closer to your victory. Celebrate that, first - and then be happy about your small wins, to boot. But - by all means - don't pass the buck of your frustrations to your employees, wife, son and/or daughter. Let them help you celebrate why you are a powerful man and show them why this latest defeat is a sign for grwoth and another notch in your belt as you march toward greatness!

Don't Stop Pushing
Have you put the pause bbutton on your growth? Have you sabotaged your progress? What would you do if you were to do it again? Hopefully - you will learn from your past mistakes! Seth muses on easing off his work when he set a weight goal. He was almost there - when he let off the gas, so to speak, and didn't eat as well to get to his target. It may not be weight, buit it could be something else that you are trying to do to better yourself. Relax, yes - but keep pushing. Keep going and you will get to where you are destined to go. Be disciplined in your approach. Enjoy the journey - and your goal will be met. Affirm yourself along the way to make the journey more enjoyable and less laborious. Give yourself a system so that you can execute and put yopurself in an even beetter position than where you are, now.

Are you tired of the violent up-and-down travails as an entrepreneur? Do you feel like on top of the world when things go well - and the world is on top of you when things aren't? Can these erratic times be managed? Yes they can - and it starts with you! Seth lets us in on a time where he just wasn't feelin' it as an entrepreneur, but lets us know that it's par for the course. He tries to not let the highs be too high and the lows not be as low. Perspective is the key, and how to manage it is the lock. There are things you can do to have a more consistent outlook (and outcome) in your life: do a mindset shift (move, work out, etc.) question your thoughts (understand why you feel the way you think) watch your conversation with self (build yourself up - not tear yourself down) Know that you have work to do. However, you are also fearfully and wonderfully made. There is no other person like you on the planet. That means you have something unique and worthwhile to contribute to the world. You were buuld for this! Tough times don't last, but tough people do ... and you are one of the toughest out there. Don't let circumstances allow you to throw in the towel. Embrace them, lick your wounds and come back swinging - because your fight will inspire so many people worldwide to do what it is they were purposed to do.

Are you feeling stressed? Is exhaustion permeating throughout your whole life? Do you want your 'flavor' to come back? Then let's look at where you are losing your power! Seth talks about his love of snowcones and how, when he bought some with two cups, the flavoring would pour to the bottom of the second cup - leaving a hole with the first one. You are leaking power in some shape, form or fashion. You are leaking confidence, certainty, power to not get enough work done/your workout done/your prayer up to par. It is all because you have a hole ion your life ... and you are leaking it. Where are you leaking power? It could be your business, fitness or relationships. Whereever it is - you have a responsibility to find the area where you are leaking and plug the hole. You are supposed to be juicy - so others can enjoy you at your most optimal level. The people who love you deserve that .. and you deserve to be fully juiced up having no holes. Resist needing to have two cups in your life. Be as flavorful as you can possibly be.

He now knows there is a purpose to the trials that come in his life. For him - it serves to make him a better coach. In the Bible, it states that you should, "count it all joy that you fall under trials of many kinds - for it produces perseverance." Tough times are supposed to produce perseverance in you ... so you can give hope to others who will endure the same hardships you did. Don't wish your trials away. Embrace them. Learn from them. Overcome them. Be a better man because of them - and improve the world because of the lessons you gathered from them. Have the mentality with trials that you develop the posture of, "Bring it on!"

From far away, Seth sees this potianl client has a core need to pour love into himself. How about you? Do you need to invest time in yourself? Do you: update your wardrobe? get your fitness up? spend time making sure you are well taken care of? In order to live a full life - your fitness, family, faith and finances all need to line up. You have what it takes to pull off a high-stakes business deal. You also have what it takes to be there for your son, daughter and/or wife.

After a minute of self-reflection, he realized that his client turned to him for a reason - and now, a source of frustration and stress has turned into a sign of a challenge ready to be fulfilled. Look in the mirror. Yes. You! Look in the mirror. What you normally see is something that is less than what others do.

Cherish The Time
Are you putting off spending time with your family? Do you feel you have the time to do other things? Why are you pushing aside other things for the sake of chasing that golden parachute? Go spend those precious times with your wife and children! Seth talks about how he reflected on time passing by on seeing how now-teenage son growing intot he man he is destined to be. He mused on enjoying a recent outing of catch with his son relaizing how special these moments truly are. The same can be said for you. These moments are fleeting. They are special - and you can't take them back. The one thing we can get back ... is time. Scale back one of those important meetings and arrange time to spend with you son or daughter. Take your wife out on a date to show hewr how special she really is to you. Know that, as much as they appreciate you crushing it in the boardroom - your children would love it more if you crushed it with quality time. The same goes for your wife. Cherish the day, night and time you spend with the most important people in your life. When it is all said and done ... what will they be able to say about you? Would it be ... "He was a respected businessman, but he never made time for us?" Or, "He was great in business, but wow ... he was such a better father/husband?" The choice is yours. The time is theirs ... and if you choose not to spend it with them - it flies by without an opportunity to atone for it.

Thank You, Negativity
Do you hate bad things happening to you? Do you complain about them every chance you get? Would you like for the bad times to stop? Well - considering you want the best things in life ... they won't stop! Seth talks about the different trials he has undergone during the last four years of his entrepreneurial journey and he has only one thing to say about them: Thank you! Now - you are probably confused, here. Seth is saying, "Thank you," to his troubles? Yes, he is. Why? It is because the trials we all undergo serve as an opportunity to learn something new about yourself. Say this with Seth, "What I resist - persists." Don't resist those obstacles that come your way. Hurdle them with the joy of the Lord and the strength of your perseverance through hard times. Embrace those challenges in life. Love the negativity ... just don't become negative along with it. Why is this frame of thinking so important? Seth puts it this way: "How you think ... impacts the way you feel impacts the way you believe impacts your results." Don't let the negativity adversely affect you. Be thankful for the trials you do undergo. Those trials produce perseverance. It (perserverance) must finish its work in you so you will be whole and complete - not lacking anything. Be thankful for your trials. Your customers, and the people you lead, will thank you later for what you learned form them.

Do you get hung up on the negatives? Is the focus solely on those who want you to do bad? Do you celebrate your victories? Well, it's time to count your victories and not focus so hard on the losses! Seth talks about the meager beginnings of The Vitality Mill - one of his business. In looking at a filled parking lot, he thought back where that same space was only occupied by two cars. A person who was along with him on his entrepreneurial journey commented on the growth and expressed congratulatory sentiments to him. Teary-eyed, Seth appreciated the compliments - and the growth his business underwent from then to now. Where in life are you focused on that negative customer? Where are you locked in on showing that 'hater' what you have done to show him/her up - if not shut them up? Are you hung up with the improvements you need more than taking account of the successes you've made? It's time to understand that life takes you on ups and downs. It is up to you to minimize how far down you go - and remember how beautiful the ups are. It's essential to focus on your success ... for your business, faith, exercising, family ... and yourself.
