801: 10 Fitness Secrets Every Busy Parent Needs to Know

TMHS 103: How To Develop Mental And Emotional Fitness

The formula for fitness is pretty simple:

Eat good food + Get plenty of movement + Sleep like you’re getting paid for it = The body and health you desire

Of course, there can be some more variables thrown in the mix, like hormones and environmental toxicity, but for the most part it’s as simple as this.

Being that it’s so simple, why is it that so many people are struggling to have the body and health that they want? It’s not complicated to have what we want at first glance… but what makes it complicated is something far more mighty than the power of food or exercise.

What trumps everything is the power of your mind.

It’s the inner game that determines your outer game. It’s your mental and emotional fitness that truly determines your outer health and fitness. This is where the real shifts need to happen. And that’s what today’s show is all about.

If we’re going to live a great life, then we can’t just stop at the acquisition of a great body. What about phenomenal relationships? What about a satisfying career? What about abundant finances and resources to do the things you want in your life?

All of this matters. And all of this is a result of developing the real mental and emotional fitness to make it happen. You can have, do and be practically anything you want. It starts right now by using these strategies to live the life you truly deserve!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • Why the formula for having great health is simple, yet most people can’t do it.
  • Why the negative voice in your head can actually teach you a lot.
  • How simply moving forward can create huge momentum for you.
  • Why doing things beyond the edge of your capability is so transformative.
  • How looking back on your life can be extremely beneficial OR extremely depressing.
  • How to instantly shift the perception about your past and make it more valuable.
  • How to get decades of experience in just a matter of days.
  • What some of the most successful people in the world do that others are afraid of.
  • What surprising thing our brains do automatically when we’re talking with other people (this is incredible!)
  • How cells found in the human heart can tell us a lot about our emotional wellness.

  2. Shawn – Dude! Are you in my head?! Is the universe/God connecting us? I was literally just thinking that my training and health are pretty on point these days, I wonder what I could do to start working on strengthening the most difficult muscle, the mind. A very enlightened friend and I discussed this topic a while ago and I thought of him as I contemplated this thought this morning. Thank you so much for bringing this information to us with such amazing timing. If there are any other books, articles or podcasts that provide more information on this subject, please share them!

    On a side note, you are a pretty funny guy, but today both you and Jade killed it with various comments ranging from Yogi, Bugs, etc. Thanks for always injecting some goofy humor into your shows.

    Thank you and many blessings!

    1. Jeff, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that! As far as books, shows, etc, there are just too many to name. All of them giving a small piece to my own personal perspective. I’ll just rattle some out here: The Power of Intention by Wayne Dyer, The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, I’m loving my buddy Lewis Howes’ show The School of Greatness. Lots of game-changers about mindset and success there from some of the most successful people on the planet.

      There’s some great resources, and expect much more great stuff coming from my direction as well!

      1. Shawn, I figured that this was one of those questions where the answer involves opening floodgates. I definitely appreciate you providing such a quick response with some of your “highlights.” I am already all over Mr. Howes’ (in the house!) show. As far as Podcasts, I find that Tim Ferriss’ show and The Art of Charm do a good job of covering this topic as well, and are hosted by real, personable people like yourself.

        Can’t wait to see what else you bring to the table in the near future! Also, great job on The Good Dad podcast. I already have my twin brother hooked on both of these shows as well, so we can improve ourselves and our families together.

        Thank you!
