Monday Mindset

[MM]: A moment to say thanks 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM]: A moment to say thanks

Happy Monday!🙌

The last few weeks have been a sprint chasing our mission here at Fit Body to Inspire Fitness and Change Lives Every Day!👊

From meetings in Miami, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and up to Norcal on Wednesday to film on FOX 40 Sacramento..

I have been busy!

And with all the hustle and bustle, I’ve been overwhelmed.

But in the height of the chaos..

I then decided to take a step back and take it all in.

Do you know who came to mind?🤔

YOU!

You see, without you..

None of this matters.

YOU are the true hero in my journey!🌟

THANK YOU for reading this Monday Mindset email content.

THANK YOU for wanting to be a little better every day.

THANK YOU for investing in your health and fitness.

THANK YOU for your dedication to personal growth.

THANK YOU for trusting my team and I as your fitness coaches.

THANK YOU for wanting to make a positive impact in the world.

YOU are the reason my team and I are on a mission!

My promise to you is that I will never forget that.

So to kick off your week..

I wanted to show YOU my love and gratitude.🥰

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!🙏

My only ask in return?

That you reach out to 1 person who has been there for you, and share your gratitude with them.

This will warm both of your days which is my hope for this message!

Love and respect.

Have a great Monday!✨

[MM]: Stay positive despite the “bad” news 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Stay positive despite the “bad” news

Happy Monday!🙌

I am here to provide you some mindset coaching that will help you create more positive thoughts, and a better life.✨

I recently watched “the interview” with Tucker Carlson and Vladimir Putin which has over 200 million views and counting. 

It got me thinking..🤔

In the last 3 years, it’s hard to escape the bad news of inflation, global conflict, poor leadership, war & destruction that we are bombarded with at every corner.

Specific to conflict and death…

From the Middle East, to Russia/Ukraine and through Taiwan, it’s a media frenzy that won’t stop.🤯

On 1 hand, these events are all true and sad. 

Yes, it’s been a tough few years when viewed in this light that will have continued effects both here and throughout the globe.

That said, 2 things can be true.💯

If we take a step back.

While it can “feel” things are going to “he** in a handbasket” as the famous saying goes..

The data shows a different story.📈

You see, global conflict and murder rates in the world just over the last 700 years have plummeted from over 70 homicides per 100,000 to just above 0.

That’s not a typo. ❌

See the attached graphic by “Our World in Data ”.👇

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In fact, we are living in the safest, wealthiest and best time to be a human with respect to the past and objective data.

Crazy huh?

So while I am not making light of any of the challenges we have faced which are still on the horizon to be resolved.

What I am saying is I would encourage you to take a step back; and examine the motive of the “bad news”.

The primary driver is not to inform you.

Instead..

It’s to sell advertising dollars through grabbing your attention.

And the best way to grab your attention?

Highlight chaos and create fear. 

This 100% is the best way to attract eyeballs.🎯

So next time you see a “breaking news story” and before you perceive the “trend”..

Take a step back and examine the objective big picture.

As 1 thing is for sure and my message today..

You must protect your input!👊

As your input shapes your thoughts.

Your thoughts shape your actions.

Your actions shape your life.

This will create the positive life you desire!⚡️

Have a great Monday!🔥

[MM]: It’s never too late.. 768 1024 Bryce Henson

[MM]: It’s never too late..

Happy Monday!🙌

I wanted to share with you a story to inspire you as I was inspired.✨

Coach Tatiana’s mom, Cristina, is in New York City through next week. 

Why?🤔

Cristina enrolled in a 2 week exchange program to study English.

Yes, that’s right..💯

At 67 years young she is studying abroad in the big apple and living her passion.🍎

You see..

Cristina had a dream to learn English ever since she was a little girl.

She grew up in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil in the 60’s.🇧🇷

And at age 15, she had the opportunity to study abroad in San Diego to learn English.

Although sadly, Cristina’s mom talked her out of it.

She was scared for her daughter so shined a light on all the dangerous things that could have happened.

**She was young. San Diego was far. She didn’t speak the language or know anyone in California, she could get injured or worse, etc…

While her mom had good intentions, unfortunately, this stinted her growth and created a life long regret. 

This is also why she was adamant that Tatiana and her siblings learn English which they all speak natively.

Well, decades have passed but Cristina’s dream stayed constant.💥

And even though later than planned..

She mustered up enough courage to enroll in this program, took the trip from Brazil alone and is making progress toward this goal.

The morale of the story?

It’s never too late to pursue your dreams!⚡️

So my message today is to take action.

Get fit.

Earn your confidence. 

Make big moves. 

Follow your heart & dreams.

After all, we only have 1 shot at this thing called life.

You must make it count!

Have a great Monday!🔥

[MM]: A dream realized 1024 768 Bryce Henson

[MM]: A dream realized

Happy Monday!🙌

I wanted to share with you a story of a dream realized on Saturday with some takeaways that can help inspire you in your ongoing journey of self leadership.✨

For some backstory..

Back in 2012, Tatiana and I were on fire when we decided to launch our little fitness business of Fit Body Boot Camp!

We were excited to help our local clients here in Orange County stay fit and active.💪

The problem?

While extremely excited, I soon realized my leadership skills were lacking.

I didn’t have a strong vision.

I couldn’t provide my team with a clear direction.

I did not provide feedback.

I did not communicate well.

The result?🤔

My team was frustrated and so was I!

I then stumbled upon a book called “The Energy Bus” by Jon Gordon as it was referred to by a friend.💥

From this fable, it provides some needed leadership coaching.

I learned the power of creating and casting vision, the importance of leading with energy, the power of strong communication and the need to give/receive feedback to support my team who support our clients.

The leadership education rocked my world and I have been following his content ever since.🌟

This includes his nationally acclaimed podcast, his youtube talks to every professional sports league in the states, 30 books published and 15 of them being best sellers!

Well, on Saturday I had the opportunity to meet and interview him on my Fitness CEO podcast around the topic of improving one’s self leadership.

We recorded a great episode which I will share on March 13 when it releases.🎉

The best part?

He was very personable, welcoming and now considers us friends.

It was a special moment!

My message today is this:

Continue to learn, understand the importance of self leadership, develop a growth mindset, do something that challenges you every day, work out 3-4x per week, stay hydrated, and eat well.🥰

When you do, it will give you the clarity and confidence to lead yourself and then your family.

And as a result of your increased quality of life and productivity, you will make bigger moves and take bigger shots.👊

And who knows..

Maybe you will even be able to meet a mentor from a far and thank them for their influence on your life. 🙂

Have a great Monday!⚡️

[MM]: The Power of Saying No 768 1024 Bryce Henson

[MM]: The Power of Saying No

Happy Monday!🙌

My better half coach Tatiana crushed a Spartan Training this past Saturday.💪

It’s inspiring to see her push herself!✨

She loves the Spartan challenge and shared with me the below message.

It was written by Joe, the CEO of the Spartan Races, on the power of saying no. 

I wanted to pass along as I got value and know you will too. 🙂

Spartans!

I have a reputation for saying “no.”

  • No to junk food
  • No to alcohol
  • No to staying up late
  • No to missing workouts
  • No to watching TV
  • No to (most) social occasions
  • But what gets lost, even to those who know me best, is how all of my “no’s” allow me to say a deeper “yes” to the things that are most meaningful to me.

I have learned that to be truly consistent in my habits and attitudes, I have to eliminate things that make staying committed to my purpose more difficult. 

Hard choices, easy life; easy choices, hard life, as the saying goes.

What makes my choices clear is that I know my life’s purpose. It’s to use the power of Spartan training and racing to help people change their lives. 

To help them become committed, resilient, mentally tough, healthier, and physically strong. 

Not for vanity or to win medals – although winning medals is pretty cool – but to make daily life (paradoxically) much easier. 

If you train yourself to manage difficult things, when the slings and arrows of daily life come your way you can handle them without breaking.

I’m heartened by the many inspirational stories of Spartans who have overcome incredible setbacks through the character and discipline developed and proven on our obstacle courses.

And while Spartan trains your body and mind to perform at our races, the true payoff comes when faced with real-life adversity. 

When you’re faced with hardship but you know in your heart that you have what it takes to keep going.

So when I consistently say “no” to certain habits, I’m actually saying “yes”:

  • Yes to a healthy body
  • Yes to a clear mind
  • Yes to all-day energy
  • Yes to staying strong
  • Yes to meeting challenges
  • Yes to serving others

So I suggest saying “yes’ to putting something very hard on your calendar.💥

It will force you to find the “no’s” in your life that will drive the outcomes you want but haven’t been manifesting.

[MM]: Cheers t o 10 years 581 1024 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Cheers t o 10 years

Happy Monday!🙌

Yes, you read the subject line right..

Cheers to 10 years of sweaty sessions here at Mission Viejo Fit Body!🎉

As we just hit the milestone this past weekend.

Looking ahead, we will be hosting a proper client celebration on March 16 due to scheduling.

So please mark your calendar.

But it’s official, we made a decade!🌟

As I reflect, the truth is I can still barely believe..

On one hand, it feels so long ago that we opened our doors on a cool dark morning in January of 2014.

Tatiana and I were excited to change lives in our community, but nervous and terrified at the same time.

On the other hand, it feels like yesterday!

And when you take a step back to look at the success rates of small businesses, the data is humbling. 📈

The truth is business success is hard to come by.💯

In fact, most businesses don’t make 1 year, let alone 10!

However, when I boil down the biggest reason for our ability to not only survive but thrive..

The biggest factor in this success is because of YOU!

So this message of gratitude is my mindset message for you today. 🙂

Thank you for investing in your health and fitness.

Thank you for trusting as your fitness coaches.

Thank you for digesting this weekly mindset content.

Thank you for inspiring us, just as I hope we have inspired you!

Thank you for taking action to be a better version of you every day.

Here’s to an incredible 10 years of living our mission of inspiring fitness and changing lives.🔥

And cheers to another 10 more!💪

[MM]: Consistency is the Ally of Success 1024 768 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Consistency is the Ally of Success

Happy Monday!🌟

Consistency is the ally of success.💥

In other words…

The more consistent you are, the more successful you are.

This thought is front and center after our Mission Viejo Leadership team executed our Annual 2 Day Planning meeting.  

We did it over the weekend with our business coach Jarred, who helped facilitate.  

Why?

The vision is to build an even better fitness program for clients!

While very valuable..

The truth is that it can be hard to execute.💯

With all the hustle and bustle in life and business, it’s difficult to stay consistent. 

You have to be proactive and pull yourself away from all the things on the plate to follow the process.

While tough to do, this my friend is where the magic lies.✨

As doing 1 Annual planning meeting provides value.

But 1 alone won’t move the needle long term.

It’s the act of year in, year out and quarter in, quarter out, executing the process. 

Another example closer to our world is your fitness.

Pushing through a 3 hour gut wrenching workout could be a positive thing for your life. 

But doing 1 alone will not get you fit or leave you with 6 pack abs.

Instead, consistently working out 30 minutes a day will actually get you fit long term.💪

So while difficult, I promise you this..

When you stay consistent with your work outs, you look up after a few years and see how far you have come.

As I leave you today, here are some quotes to leave you inspired to be more consistent in 2024.

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” ~ Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.  ~ Robert Collier 

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” ~ Aristotle

“It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.” ~ Tony Robbins

“Trust is built with consistency.” ~ Lincoln Chafee

[MM]: Bear Your Burden Well 931 1024 Bryce Henson

[MM]: Bear Your Burden Well

Happy Monday!✨

I want to share a leadership story with you today.

Why?

Because in order to be a better leader of your family..

You have to lead yourself well first.👊

And a big part of leading you, is being healthy and fit.💪

Another part  of leading is bearing your burden well.

Let me explain.👇

My mother Donna called my brother Barrett & I last week.

She shared the news that our Uncle Ed who is 84 will have open heart surgery next week.

Eeek.

The kicker?🤔

He just told his children and siblings last week after knowing for 4 months.

Now for some backstory..

My Uncle Ed is the patriarch of our family.

He is a man of few words.

He doesn’t like the limelight.

But he’s the man when poop hits the fan, and you need help for something important…

You call!🙌

He’s a good man and a strong man.

He’s been the backbone of our family for decades and someone that our family admires.

Now you might be asking yourself this…

Why did he wait to disclose this information to his kids for nearly ½ a year?

The answer..

He didn’t want to burden his family during the holiday season.

It was apparent to him that there was nothing that could have been done aside from creating worry.

He knew that this should be his burden to carry..

And when the time is more opportune in consideration of his loved ones, he would then share the news which is exactly what he did..

Stoic Leadership at its finest.💥

This also presents the dichotomy to leadership and why it’s difficult.

Most times, strong and proactive communication is the best strategy.

Default to this.

However, there are times that you need to bear the burden alone as a leader of your family.

This is why it’s called “the burden of leadership”.

To my uncle’s credit.. 

He’s an incredible leader of himself and family.🔥

Over the years, most of his leadership lessons have been caught and not taught.

This is yet another.

So please learn this value lesson from my Uncle Ed.. 

As a leader of both yourself and family..

You must bear your burden well.

Please send good vibes for a successful surgery.🙏

[MM]: 3 questions from 2023 150 150 Bryce Henson

[MM]: 3 questions from 2023

HAPPY NEW YEAR!🎉

As we look to 2024..

I hope you have and will take time to plan your goals.🌟

I also hope you also take a little time to reflect on this past year.✨

This is hard to do with your busy schedule. 

But this investment of your time is where the big breakthroughs are found!💥

I learned this 3 question framework this past year from a friend which is simple yet effective.⚡️ 

Given my interest in supporting your health & fitness, that’s where my recommendation is focused. 

However, this exercise can/should be done in all major aspects of your life such as family, fitness, faith and finances.

  • What worked?
  • What didn’t?
  • What would have I done differently?

Please carve out 60 minutes in the next week to write down your answers in detail regarding your 2023.

If you are the 10% of people who do..

I promise you your 2024 will be even better!🔥

In closing, thank you for an amazing 2023.

My team and I are grateful to be on this journey together.🥰

Let’s make the new year even better!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

(MM): Hardship is relative (2023 reflection) 150 150 Bryce Henson

(MM): Hardship is relative (2023 reflection)

Happy Monday!🙌

As 2023 winds down..

I wanted to share some perspectives that I received from a thought leader I follow.✨

I believe it’s important that you create time for reflection as often as possible.

This creates growth and perspective.📈

It also helps you be a better person.

So I hope you get value from the below, and it allows you to enjoy the holidays a bit more which will also set the tone for 2024.

That’s my goal for you!🥰

For a small amount of perspective at this moment, imagine you were born in 1900. 

When you are 14, World War I starts and ends on your 18th birthday with 22 million people killed. 

Later in the year, a Spanish Flu epidemic hits the planet and runs until you are 20. 

50 million people died from it in those two years. 

Yes, 50 million!

When you’re 29, the Great Depression begins. Unemployment hits 25%, and global GDP drops 27%. 

That runs until you are 33. 

The country nearly collapsed along with the world economy.

When you turn 39, World War II starts. 

You aren’t even over the hill yet.

When you’re 41, the United States is fully pulled into WWII. 

Between your 39th and 45th birthday, 75 million people perish in the war and the Holocaust kills 12 million. 

At 52, the Korean War started and 5 million perished.

At 64 the Vietnam War begins, and it doesn’t end for many years.

4 million people died in that conflict. 

Approaching your 62nd birthday you have the Cuban missile crisis, a tipping point in the Cold War…

Life on our planet, as we know it, could well have ended.

 

Thankfully, great leaders prevented that from happening.

As you turn 75, the Vietnam War finally ends. 

Think of everyone on the planet born in 1900. 

How do you survive all of that? 

A kid in 1985 didn’t think their 85-year-old grandparent understood how hard school was. 

Yet those grandparents (and now great-grandparents) survived through everything listed above.

Perspective is an amazing art.🌟

As 2023 ends, let’s try and keep things in perspective as all hardship is relative. 

Let’s be smart and take care of ourselves.👊 

This way, we can help each other which is my message today. 

Make it a GREAT Monday!🔥
