Go impact and change the world by taking care of your race car and taking care of your body.
How to add rocket fuel to your race car.
You’re a race car. You are the only one and you don’t get a replacement. You can’t trade yourself in. You can’t swap your engine. You can’t start over. You are in this amazing machine called your human body. Also known as an existential meat suit.
what I’ve seen and what I’ve noticed extensively with myself and those in my mastermind with private clients with everything is that we think we’re invincible until we’re reminded we’re not. But the first thing that we do is we sacrifice ourself. For the quote unquote, betterment of our business, or to hustle one more time or two, give that last inch. And one of the things that you realize when you say study champions, when you study the grades. So when you have coaches that are champions, and if coach champions like 40 gold medalists, you realize that winners don’t play like that. Champions don’t play like that. They practice restraint. They practice temperament temperance, not temperament and temperament, but probably not temperance. They have a plan. They methodically go after their goals. They’re constantly making micro adjustments to increase their performance and to making recovery periods and tweaks as needed to optimize their performance to function at the highest level.
So if you think about it as a car, they’re changing their oil, they’re rotating their tires. They’re reading the gauges every single time that they drive, not until the check engine light comes on, they’re proactive in their pursuit of their performance. And they know that eventually the wheels might fall off of the engine might break down. But why wait until it starts to show signs of wear and tear instead be proactive and prevent the wear and tear, find it and create it before it happens so that you can run your best race so you can optimize your performance. The five things I think every single entrepreneur needs to add to their arsenal to increase their performance, increase their longevity, to take care of themselves, to bring presence to what they do to absolutely give you a competitive advantage and be proactive in the pursuit of your greatest performance. Not passive waiting until the check engine light comes on and then forcing you into a breakdown, trying to compensate and catch up because once you are behind, you never get back to where you were. You’re just putting band-aids on a bigger problem.
First thing in my opinion that every entrepreneur needs to do more of needs to have more of needs to ingest more of a needs to have a better relationship is water. My buddy, Alex Charfen harps on this all the time. And he has the hydration challenge. It is probably one of the single biggest and fastest game-changers for human beings, proper consumption of water, proper hydration, drinking enough water. I E waking up in the morning. And before you do anything else, like before you even get out of your bedroom, you drink 16 to 20 ounces of water to start your day. Like that level of water, it’s waking up and putting a rocket fuel in your gas tank. So you can shoot off to Mars that’s what water does, and we all need to drink more of it. Our bodies are made of what, like 76% of water. Most of us walk around dehydrated. Most of us do not drink enough water and I have done Alex’s hydration challenge.
Number one is water and drinking of water. Number 1.1 is using water in its other forms to support you in your healing, in your recovery and in your growth. Some of those ways include cold therapy, taking a cold shower, doing ice bass, dunking your face in an ice cold bucket of water to reset your nervous system and trigger your vagal nerve and your mammalian diving response. Cold water therapy is mind blowing. It is the reason that I am no longer on opiates. It’s the reason I’m no longer an addict to pills because cold water and the breath associated with cold therapy helped me kick those habits because I can manage my pain. I can get my body working properly. I can reset my mitochondria. I can deliver oxygen and nutrients into my blood and into my muscles. I am utilizing my body and the most natural forms of recovery possible.
Love your body from the inside out
Next is one of my favorite products and it is called a morning routine. People have been doing this for years. I’ve seen it for 10 years, morning water, Apple, cider vinegar, a little bit of lemon and sea salt. Does wonders for your body. It’s a thousand times better than a cup of caffeine. And luckily for me, one of my friends decided. we made it into a stick pack and there it’s called morning routine. So the website is your routine.com. It helps with hydration, digestion and wellness. It’s dairy, gluten, soy sugar-free it’s keto friendly it’s made in the USA it’s non-GMO and it’s vegan.
It works wonders. It helps my digestion and helps my Bibles. It helps everything. I feel amazing. And so I’m looking at their website because I’m just going to read their notes at age digestion. It helps reduce weight at detoxifies, the body and improves complexion and it enhances energy and it strengthens the heart. Organic lemon powder, a hundred percent vegan product, no preservatives, no synthetic dyes, no yeast or gluten. It’s made in an allergen free facility. It’s proudly made in the USA. They give back with every single one of them, and it’s the only blend on the market. Combining organic lemon, organic Apple cider vinegar, Himalayan, sea salt, and electrolytes in a delicious sugar-free drink. And here’s a secret. My four year old absolutely loves it.
Daily superfoods detox
A daily superfood, a chocolate detox sake that I absolutely love. I personally love having it with water in my shaker cup to keep it really simple. I also have it with macadamia nut milk. I actually have a daily superfoods detox, organic shake. The amount of quality ingredients in this product is absolutely mind-blowing. It’s dairy free it’s non-GMO and its gluten free. They have their detox and cleansing blend. Inside of it. They have their alkalize and energizing blend inside of it. They have their digestive support blend inside of it calories, just in case anybody’s thinking it’s 130 calories, a serving with one gram of fat, nine grams of carbs and four grams of protein.
One of the best ones that gets the best and highest quality collagen that also has a social mission that I support fully because they give back 10% of gross to the military community. And veterans is Bubs naturals. So collagen belongs in my opinion, in every single person’s diet, every single person needs college and to be a superfood from the inside out.
And this whole thing of self-care. One of the things I like to do is intentionally force myself to relax, put a container of relaxation in my life. And so I like taking baths. I really do. I think they’re really powerful. I think they’re really healthy. I think they helped me a ton. And so I use their CBD bath bombs all the time. And so they have CBD bath bombs that I use. So if you don’t want to ingest CBD, you’ve never ingested CBD. There are so many benefits that CBD has. I can’t even begin to list them all because I don’t even understand all of them, but I feel amazing. And they basically have CBD gummies that you can take that they help with anxiety. They help with energy. They help, just my body, feel good. They also have a secret product from them that helps entrepreneurs absolutely thrive. So if you’ve ever seen that movie limitless, we hear entrepreneurs talking all the time about smart drugs and nootropics and all of these different things called the alert CBD capsules. If I’m having trouble focusing. I go right to these and I take them. I take them maybe once or twice a week, but I literally feel like I got the cheat codes to life. I feel focused. I feel clear, feel calm. I feel energized all at the same time. And so their alerts CBD capsules are literally my secret weapon.
So this is the list that I share for us to find a way to optimize your performance, to love your race car, to give it what it needs to perform its best. I need you to take care of you because this is the only vessel that you have and restraint and temperance, and you playing like a champion is what’s going to help you impact the world and starting by taking care of your race car and taking care of your body and giving it what it needs is the best and the fastest way to do that.
