The Slingshot

Yesterday, I spent the day with my daughter and her friend at Carowinds theme park here in Charlotte, NC. Viv and her friend decided to do “The Slingshot” which you can see from the video is quite scary! The ride shoots the rider over 300 feet into the air at speeds of up to 60 …

My Favorite Breathing Practices

We talk about Breathing and Breathing Practices here on Win In Your Mind for many reasons! First and foremost it’s because controlling our breath allows us to control our thoughts and our physiology, and that is the first step in winning in our mind.

Control Your Mind

There I was! Getting into ice bath in Carlsbad, CA, at the Unbeatable Mind Experience. The shock of the cold water took my breath. I was breathing, or trying to, through my mouth in small gasps.

This is Not Your Life

“Your life isn’t margaritas on a beach in Jamaica. That happens now and then. Those are exceptions. Your life is how your wife greets you at the door when you come home every day, cause that’s like 10 minutes a day. Your life is how you treat each other over the breakfast table, ‘cause that’ …

Choose Your Friends Wisely

“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with” John Lee Dumas That quote may not have originated with John Lee Dumas but that’s how he closes every episode of his Entrepreneur On Fire Podcast.

A Navy SEAL on Visualization

I am not sure I’m one of those “Everything happens for a reason” people but what about coincidence? Coincidences happen sometimes and it leaves me scratching my head.

Conversations Kill – Part 2

In a previous post I talked about one of my favorite songs, “Big Empty“, by Stone Temple Pilots. There is a lyric in that song that has always stuck with me. “Conversations Kill“! Conversations can be tough, but the ones that really kill are the conversations that we have with ourselves. You know the ones: …

Setting the Right Goals – F.I.T.S.

We’ve already established that setting goals is important. I recently wrote about a study of Harvard MBA graduates that showed only 3% of the 1979 graduating class had clear written goals. Ten years later, those 3% were earning 10 times more on average than the remaining 97% of the class. But we want to make …
