Mental Fitness Challenge

Posted: May 14, 2012 in Uncategorized

I am so pumped about this new Mental Fitness Challenge the just came out,  its gonna make such a difference for so many people.  Bill Lewis wrote and article on his blog about this also, I like it so much I am gonna share it with you.

I wanted to wait at least a week until I blogged about the new mental fitness challenge that   the chairman, Orrin Woodward, and the rest of the policy counsel recently released.  The MFC, as we call it, is the latest improvement that has been made to    To say that this has created some excitement would be an understatement.  The results of the launch have been amazing, click on this link to get some of the statistics.

The challenge is a process of helping us to improve ourselves from the mental side of things.  Orrin has studied the lives of three historical, great, Americans, and each one of them had resolutions that they worked on implementing into their life.  Orrin and Chris Brady decided that they should put together a system that helps people systematically walk themselves through that same successful process.

The challenge is great because it provides one of the most important item of success.  It tells you were you are at.  As the saying goes if you don’t where you are starting, it’s going to be really hard to get your destination.   You could be heading down a path that you don’t need to be heading down, just because you lacked the information of what path you are already on.  The test gives you a pretty accurate assessment of the things you need to improve on and the correct paths to get you there.

The other benefit of the test is it helps you focus.  You can walk outside and enjoy the sunlight but you can also take that same sunlight and shine it through a magnifying glass and light things on fire.  The same is true with our personnel growth.  We can just enjoy the fact that we are alive or we can light ourselves on fire.  We tend to naturally work on the things that we are strong at and avoid the things we are weak at.  After you take the challenge you will have a clear understanding of the areas you need to grow in and therefore keep you focused on the next thing you need to do to become better.

 I really hope your up to the challenge.

If someone was a teenager and hadn’t grown since they were 10yrs old, there could be a chance for alarm. It’s so easy to see issues of growth physically but most people aren’t looking for growth internally.  Learning is an area in someones life that they don’t have limitations.  I know that if I wanted to get ripped physically I would eventually plateau.  Each of us has a DNA that limits us to certain potential levels physically.  On the contrary, you can be a life long learner.  The problem that most people, me included at a point, encounter is useless learning.

I hope that you have a way to measure your growth and a mentor to keep stretching your thinking.  A mentor is someone that is much better than you at the thing you are trying to get better at.  Many times you shouldn’t even understand the level of thinking the mentor is expressing, because they are talking from a whole different vantage point.  Everyone that achieves greatness refers back to someone who really stretched them at one point.  The worst part of that is they know that it took someone to help them get to that level of success and sometimes they won’t reach for the next mentor.  For example, John Wooden always talks about his father who set the bar very high in his life.  John Wooden became a historical icon.

In Hebrews 5:12- It sums it up.

12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13[For every one that useth milk ] is[ unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.] 14[But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, ] even[ those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

I take this as, over time we should become more proficient at what we are doing.  I remember hearing Orrin Woodward say that many people have one year of experience  thirty times, instead of thirty years of experience.  I want to encourage you to dig into your own growth and gain some ground.  Find someone to stretch you and help you achieve what you want to.

Here’s to your growth,
