5 Ways To Rewire Your Brain | IMPACT Q&A

Good morning podcast fans. You hear me talk about “Get Your Mind Right” all the time. Well, today’s episode is guaranteed to get your mind right and your brain firing on all cylinders. Today’s Q&A focuses on 2 questions. One deals with shifting your mind to a “CAN-DO” attitude and quarterbacking your own health. The other question deals with parenting and getting your kids to overcome a “mediocre mindset” to become extraordinary. Enjoy the episode and be sure to share the good news!


More About the Episode:

Question #1: 
“I am now a father of three, ages 4, 2 and 1 year old (all girls pray for me) and more than anything, my wife and I want our kids to believe in themselves and not settle for mediocrity.  

How have you and Melanie gotten your kids to buy in into being extraordinary in the wake of school-aged kids and the many negative influences that our kids encounter in the middle school to high school stages?”

Chris Farrell, Cincinnati OH, Pocaster at The Fit Dad Life, “Grow Yourself Grow Your Marriage”

2:18 – Instilling Strong Values
Behavior and beliefs… what are you teaching them?

3:09 – Have A Nighttime Routine
Prayer and mantras don’t just center YOU before bed… they center your kids too. 

3:17 – Your Words Matter
Your words can crush spirits… or build them.

3:59 – Your Actions Speak Loudest
Do what you want them to do. Don’t do what you don’t want them to do.

4:32 – Have Fun
There is enough pressure on kids today (without your help). Loosen up and have fun with them!

4:58 – Choices
Every choice counts. Will your choices eventually build positive results?

Question #2: 
“When you’re told you can’t do this or do that from parents and doctors, how do you flip that switch from “I can’t do it” to “I can do it”? 

This is something I have struggled with. I want to go out and conquer the world, but when it comes down to it, I end up telling myself I can’t do that. I once had a doctor tell me you should not be rollerblading. I did it anyway because I love to do it! I realize why the doctor told me I can’t do rollerblading. I could’ve had seizures, but it wasn’t as bad back then. I wish I could get to the point where I tell myself yes you can go hiking up a mountain or yes let’s go skydiving!”

Gretchen Schupbach, Flint MI

Your health is in your hands. Take initiative on the care you need.

7:32 – Change is Constant, Progress is Not
What can you do to make progress?

8:16 – Self Talk
Continue to tell yourself you ARE… bold, courageous, beautiful, smart… 

9:38 – Challenge Yourself Physically and Mentally
The only way to know if you can do something is to go out and do it!
