Leadership Lesson: One’s Ability to Lead Is Tied To This..

I just did a podcast swap with a new friend Ben Newman.

Ben and I were introduced through our mutual friend Amberly Lago.

We both come from the Midwest, from homes with abandoned fathers who were addicts, went to the same university, and have a passion for coaching, winning, and leading.

Kindred spirits.

Ben was just rated top 5 mindset coaches of the year by USA Today along with Tim Grover, Ed Mylett, Mel Robins, and Brendan Berchard.

He worked for the GOAT, Nick Saban for 5 years as a Peak Mindset Coach and won the 2020 National Championship with the University of Alabama. 

He also won 3 national championships at North Dakota State and a Big 12 Conference championship with Kansas State.

He’s a winner, a world-class leader, and his mantra is “Standard Over Feelings”.

On our podcast swap, which his episode drops on July 24, he shared the below leadership lesson. 

“Bryce, your ability to lead someone else is directly tied to the discipline in which you lead yourself.”

Mic Drop.

Breaking it down, discipline is a key ingredient in self-leadership and that of others.

Want to be a better leader?

Start with developing your discipline muscle.

[MM]: Wisdom


Happy Monday!

Wisdom is something I’ve valued ever since I was a boy.

It started with my relationship with my grandma Josephine.

We became close after my family escaped my father’s addiction in 1991 and landed on her door for close to a decade through out the 90’s.

My grandma was heaven sent.

Through the challenge, our bond grew and would spend time with her every weekend through college until I graduated and moved to Los Angeles.

She would pour wisdom into me by sharing stories of her life and watching her live.

This is what inspired me to ask 6 amazing women of our Fit Body Forever program designed for mature adults 55+ to sit down with me and record a conversation.

I wanted to gain insights from their experience in the Fit Body Forever program. 

I also wanted to extract wisdom from their life via their challenges, struggles, regrets, love, priorities and values.

As such, my friends Mary, Chris, Linda, Barbie, Michelle, Sherry and I sat down 2 weeks ago and recorded a beautiful conversation that I will share in the fall when it releases.

Through the chat, I was reminded of 1 truth about life.

It is fleeting.

The tough truth is that we are both running out of time.

Tomorrow is not promised so we must live with urgency.

My message today?

Pick up the phone. 

Have that conversation that you need to.

Take the first step with your fitness.

Tell that special person you love them.

Now is the time!

Make it a great week!

Leadership Lesson: You will be out of it soon 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership Lesson: You will be out of it soon

I wear a necklace with the saying “Momento Mori”. 

It’s Latin and translates to “Remember your death”.

Sounds cold, but it’s true.

The truth is as a leader, the message gives perspective. 

The truth about life is this:

Everything is temporary.

To put a bow on the lesson today, I received the message below from my friend Joey from Few Will Hunt.

It provides the perspective you need to lead.

If you’re in the storm, you’ll be out of it soon. Think calm. Poise. 

If you’re in the sun, you’ll be out of it soon. Think chaos. Prepare.

[MM]: You’ll be out of it soon

Happy Monday!

My business partner Joey sent me an email last week with the below message and thought of you.

If you’re in the storm, you’ll be out of it soon. Think calm. Poise. 

If you’re in the sun, you’ll be out of it soon. Think chaos. Prepare.

It stopped me dead in my tracks.

Why?

He is right.

No matter what is going on at the moment, you will be out of it soon.

Everything in life is temporary.

This too shall pass.

Tomorrow is not promised.

This is why we must live with urgency!

TODAY is THE DAY as you will be out of it soon!

Happy Monday, let’s make it a good week!

Leadership Lesson: Calm & Chaos 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership Lesson: Calm & Chaos

There are many dichotomies in leadership.

I want to share 1 with you today.

As a leader.

In times of calm, you must create chaos.

In this sense I mean you need to create initiatives that are uncomfortable to push the mission & revenue forward.

However..

In times of chaos, you must create calmness.

Calmness will settle your team and provide them with reassurance on the path ahead.

Interesting huh?

Leadership is not for the faint of heart.

There are many more dichotomous and goodness ahead.

Stay along for the journey!

[MM]: Developed: Not Hired

Happy Monday!

I hope you had a productive weekend.

Mine was spent in Austin, TX as my good friend and CEO of a marketing agency called Loud Rumor flew me out to give a keynote at his event.

I spoke to a 200 person audience of Fitness Professionals full of passion!

My requested topic?

How to Hire Studio Location Managers.

I opened it up with a story of how I began as a broke and out of shape alcoholic, to becoming the CEO of an international fitness franchise.

The punchline?

Studio Managers, CEO’s, or any high level teammate are NOT hired.

They are developed.

Let me illustrate this further..

When Tatiana and I first started out with our 1st Fit Body location in 2012, I was the bookkeeper, janitor, sales/marketing guy, and coach all wrapped up into 1.

Was it pretty?

No.

But we were on fire with passion to Inspire Fitness and Change Lives!

The rest, we figured out.

It wasn’t easy.

It took many reps, sets and many years.

But we kept progressing until 1 day I developed to a point where the Founder of Fit Body Bedros Keuilian offered me the VP and then the CEO role.

This didn’t happen overnight.

It took years of development.

My message to the audience and you?

Nothing in life worth pursuing is easy.

We all start out on the ground floor.

But with some passion, grit, and willingness to put in the reps and sets.

You can transform your fitness, your profession, your business and your life.

Just remember: people are DEVELOPED not hired.

Leadership Lesson: Discipline = Freedom 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership Lesson: Discipline = Freedom

Yesterday here in the States, we observed Memorial Day.

It’s a day that we observe in honor of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

After all, freedom isn’t free.

Since the dawn of time, humans have tried to oppress others in the name of survival and power.

This is the nature of the world.

And to be a strong leader of humans. 

You need to be a student of human nature.

As humans, we default to the path of least resistance when given the opportunity.

We procrastinate which is a recipe for oppression.

This is part of our nature.

Instead, realize that discipline creates freedom.

Innately I knew this to be true at a young age.

But a mentor from afar by the name of Jocko Willink reinforced this in teaching.

This teaching is what I want to pass on to you today.

Well, in reality, you already know this to be true.

What I’ve learned about human nature, is most times we need to be reminded more than we need to be taught.

So in honor of Memorial Day and those fallen to protect our freedom.

I wanted to provide you with this leadership reminder.

Discipline = Freedom.

[MM]: Opportunity. Not an obligation 🇺🇸 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Opportunity. Not an obligation 🇺🇸

Family! 🙌

Happy Memorial Day. 🇺🇸

Yes, that means it’s Murph Day.

But why?🤔

It honors the sacrifice of those beautiful souls who gave their life to protect our freedom.

After all..

Freedom is what our country stands for. 🇺🇸

Freedom is the gift that fitness gives.💪

The best part?

We have the opportunity to work on our fitness every day.🌟

This is 1 of the many reasons I am passionate about being a Fit Body Owner!

It creates freedom from depression and anxiety.

So while crushing your Murph workout.

My message today is to remember that you don’t HAVE to work out.

You GET to work out.💯

It’s an opportunity and not an obligation. 

Many souls like Michael P. Murphy, US Navy Seal paid the ultimate sacrifice so we could have this opportunity.

Please remember that today and always, which is my message.✨

Happy Memorial Day. 🇺🇸

Leadership Lesson: Own It 150 150 Bryce Henson

Leadership Lesson: Own It

Leadership is about owning it.

Yes, the good, bad, and ugly.

Case in point, Tatiana and I received an apology letter from a former coach of ours this week.

He coached for us a few years ago as our Head Coach.

Good-hearted dude but made some poor choices, became negative, dropped some balls, and then had an adverse reaction to accountability.

It wasn’t a fun situation or ending to his employment. It created friction for the team and clients.

Sadly, sometimes it’s how these things go in working with young teammates.

To clear the air though.

Heaven knows I pulled a couple of not-so-smart moves in my mid-20s working on teams. So not here to cast stones.

In fact, here to do the opposite. 

It was refreshing for Tatiana to review the apology email.

It was simple but effective.

He owned his actions and apologized for them with sincerity.

While it was nice to receive for us, the big value was for him so hats off.

He just gained perspective, growth and credibility with himself which will serve him well in the future.

This is my leadership message today.

As a leader, you will make mistakes.

This is part of the journey.

But when you do and come to that realization, promptly admit, own it, and apologize.

When you do, you free yourself and others.

This is leadership.

Onward.

[MM]: Own It 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Own It

Happy Monday!🙌

Today’s mindset message is about leadership.✨

There’s a lot to the subject.

But at the core.

Leadership is about owning it.👊

Or in other words, taking responsibility for your actions.

Yes, the good, bad, and ugly.

To illustrate my point, I will share a story with you from last week.👇

Unexpectedly, Coach Tatiana and I received an apology letter from a former coach of ours.

He coached for us a few years ago at another location we used to lead.

Good-hearted guy but made some poor choices, became negative, dropped some balls, and then had an adverse reaction to accountability.

It wasn’t a fun situation or ending to his employment. 

It created friction for the team and clients.

Sadly, sometimes it’s how these things go in working with young teammates.

That’s the tough truth about leadership, and life.👊

To clear the air though.

Heaven knows I pulled a couple of not-so-smart moves in my mid-20s working on teams. 

So not here to cast stones.

In fact, here to do the opposite. 

It was refreshing for Tatiana to review the apology note.🙏

It was simple but effective.

He owned his actions and apologized for them with sincerity.

While it was nice to receive for us.

The biggest value was for him.🌟

He just gained perspective, growth and credibility with himself. 💥

This will serve him well in the future.

This is my leadership message today.

As a leader of self, you will make mistakes.

This is part of the growth journey.🌱

But when you do and you come to that realization..

Promptly admit, apologize and own the mistake.

When you do, you free yourself and others.

This is leadership and the best way to live.⚡️

Happy Monday!
