Strength Matters Summit Brain Candy

Returning from the weekend teaching at the Strength Matters Summit in San Diego, California I had the opportunity to reflect on some of the awesome presenters and attendees I had the privilege of learning from.

I love teaching for sure, but I love being a student even more.


When I teach I can only tell you what I already know. When I listen to others I learn. The two worlds collide and that’s how you change the world. Much love and thanks to my Strength Matters family…

  • James Breese (Mac Daddy) He runs the asylum.
  • Seb Morgan (Who forgot his safety helmet) We can’t take him anywhere.
  • Joshua Kennedy (Best wingman and soon to be off the market)
  • Vickie Saunders (Connection Queen and Ms.? Mac Daddy) 🙂

Just a few gems I walked away with…

  1. Starting is a better target than stopping Want to hit a goal? Don’t concentrate on giving something up, start something new instead. Major bomb from Josh Hillis
  2. Meeting new people in business is not about networking it’s all about connecting. Completely different outlook that gives you an entirely different results. Perspectives matter. WHAMMO from Vickie Saunders
  3. Honor your essence. Your uniqueness is your strength in training and life. Concentrate on your strengths not your weaknesses. James Fitzgerald
  4. Passion without process is chaos. Passion will get you started but you will never hit a target without process. Passion thrives on process. Many people have passion but few map it out with a plan and then follow it. General Kurt brain candy.
  5. To be elite you have to quit thinking that fatigue is the answer. Stop training redline 100% all the time. It’s not about kicking your ass to be the best. Gotta be smarter. Dan John neural brain explosion.
  6. I can tell what you think by looking at your results. Your environment reveals who you are more than you reveal the environment you came from. Iron Tamer David Whitley sledge hammer over the brain mindset

So many other magnificent presenters coming to share what they love to help others become better at what they love. You just can’t beat that.

It’s an honor and a blessing to go out every weekend and share what has changed your life. One of the most important lessons you learn the more time you spend in the arena is to keep an open mind, an open heart, be kind, be curious, never stop learning, and don’t be afraid to look stupid because that’s the only way you’re ever going to get better.

Until next time…
