Monday Mindset: A few lessons from 37 spins 768 1024 Bryce Henson

Happy Monday.

I hope you had a great weekend. I did and am extremely grateful for all the birthday messages as I celebrated 37 spins around the sun on Friday.

As such, I wanted to provide you some birthday value and share a few lessons from my journey thus far that I know to be true, and trust they can benefit your life.

  1. Move your body and sweat every day. And while this is important for your body, your mind will benefit the most.
  2. Life isn’t long. In fact, time is your most important commodity which is fleeting. Don’t waste it otherwise you will live with regret.
  3. Short term: take massive action, long term: have patience. This is a very good strategy for a successful life.
  4. Drink more water.
  5. Be the hardest working person in the room. Period.
  6. Travel as far and wide as possible and to 1 new place every year. Even if you have to sleep on couches and scrape pennies together to do this, you will become a better and more interesting person.
  7. Eat less sugar, and more nutrient dense foods. Your body will respond and feel much better.
  8. No one owes you anything. If you live an entitled life, while short term it feels good, long term you will suffer.
  9. Live abroad for at least 12 months of your life and ideally in a 3rd world country. This will build your confidence, teach you humility and make you a better person.
  10. Pick a new hobby and dedicate yourself to consistent & weekly pursuit of mastery every decade. Your life will be enriched.
  11. Sleep is critical for a successful and happy life.
  12. Have more patience with yourself and others. Life is hard and we are all doing the best we know how.
  13. Tackle your problems head on. Otherwise, they grow and ultimately get worse with time and avoidance.
  14. People will learn from what you do, not what you tell them.
  15. Practice Ronald Reagan’s rule number 6. What is rule number 6? Don’t take yourself to seriously, no one is getting out alive.
  16. Take extreme ownership of your situation and your life. Stop pointing fingers & playing the victim. You might have been wronged, but it’s still your responsibility to fix. Which also means that in any situation, you are also the solution.
  17. When you mess up, apologize promptly and deeply mean it. Learn from it and then move on. We all make mistakes so don’t live with regret.
  18. Accept the things you cannot change. Change the things you can. And pray for the wisdom to know the difference. (that’s easier said than done).
  19. Remember that the more you learn, the less you realize you know.
  20. In every situation you encounter, leave it better than you found it.

I trust you got some value, and here is to another year of learning and growth.

Love, respect and gratitude,

-Coach Bryce
