Power of the Eyes

The eyes play a major role in survival. Regardless of where you are, you always want to break eye contact with the threat.

The eyes tell a lot of things about what is going on in the brain. Maintaining eye contact tells the threat to keep going. Realize how powerful the eyes are.

Breaking Ocular Lock

The eyes lose their ability to scan when they are fixed onto something for so long. This is called ocular lock. Remember that the eyes are tied into balance and movement patterns.

Attack is usually sensed from the peripheral vision. It is less likely to be sensed when you’re experiencing ocular lock. This is why you need to realize what is going on in your brain, and avoid looking onto something for so long.

The Fetal Position

Your legs and abs are shortened when you’re sitting. This gives you a ready position when faced with a threat.

In the fetal position, you tuck your knees up to your chest and your head down to your knee or stomach area. This enables you to protect your head. Remember that the way you carry yourself reflects the thoughts of your brain, and sends signals to the threat.

In today’s show, the human strength expert Kyle Newell shares some classic insights to help you manage your energy wisely.

Here are the show highlights of Systems and Chaos Planning:

  • Systems for survival (2:51)
  • Goals for 2017 (3:29)
  • Things that can get in the way (4:33)

Systems for Survival

Goals are not habits, but systems are. The brain works on the systems that we create. As discussed in the previous episodes, habits help free up head space. They help us focus as well.

Our bodies need habits and systems for survival. We need to have goals, and break them down to systems.

Goals for 2017

One of Kyle’s goals for this year is to write 3 books. To achieve his goals, he has set the habit of writing 1,500 words per day. Before that, he first identified what he wanted to write about.

Systems make you feel successful every day. You work on them each day for you to achieve your goals. Just like having a dietary habit, you need to stick with the system to succeed.

Things that can Get in the Way

Consistently practicing the system you’ve set can be challenging. Many things can get in the way. This is why it’s important that you know how to manage your energy wisely.

Many people make a list of things to do, fail to get things done, and get frustrated until their tasks pile up throughout the week. Lack of focus can burn up mental energy. Once done, you would need to take a break.

  • Doubt in your voice (7:03)

  • Leading by example (4:18)

A Word on Leadership

Everyone can develop their leadership skills. It’s not just for someone running an organization or for coaches.

Leadership is like the essential qualities of self-compassion and love. You need to have it first before enforcing it on others. Simply put, you can’t lead others if you can’t lead yourself.

The Habit of Winning

Winning is a habit and not just a goal. It takes time for the mind to settle on doing something, and turn it as a habit. That’s winning—having the momentum to work on your plan every day.

It’s difficult to keep losing in life. Imagine having to lose a lot of pounds. For you to improve, you need to lose an ounce at a time.

Leading By Example

A leader has to go ahead of his followers. It’s important that you lead from the front. For Kyle, he does the actual training and maintains a healthy lifestyle.

Another important leadership quality to learn is the ability to adapt one’s principles to circumstances. To do so, you need to know your principle first. Learn more leadership principles from today’s episode!

In today’s show, the human strength expert Kyle Newell shares the immutable laws that he holds true in his life. They are classic principles which everyone else can practice.

Here are the show highlights of Kyle Newell's Rules #6-10:

  • Subscription newsletters (1:32)
  • Immutable laws (3:09)
  • Rule 6 clarity is king (3:31)
  • Significance of clarity (4:21)
  • Rule 7 have a morning routine (5:08)
  • Kyle’s routine (6:35)
  • Rule 8 put your own mask first (7:43)
  • Rule 9 rhetoric vs dialect (9:01)
  • Rule 10 compassion towards self (10:40)
  • Recap (12:14)

Clarity is King

Kyle’s personal word for the year is clarity. The mind can go on a reactive state when it lacks clarity. Consequently, a lot of bad things can happen.

In most of his mind mapping sessions with clients, he saw the lack of clarity that people deal with in life. It presents a kind of ambiguity where you wouldn’t know what’s supposed to happen.

Significance of Clarity

Unspoken issues can lead to unwanted division in a relationship. Consider a husband who has something in mind that annoys him. His wife, on the other hand, thinks about something according to how she views his situation. This unspoken tension, however, grows over time and divides them.

That is why clarity is important—it lessens the intensity of the emotions that one suppresses. Everyone around you wouldn’t have a hard time knowing what you want when you’re clear with your thoughts.

Have a Morning Routine

Having a morning routine enables you to make the most out of your day. The most stressful hour is when the cortisol goes up for about 2 hours before you actually get up from bed. It’s the time when you move from being unconscious to conscious.

Regardless of how comfortable your bed is, the cortisol will alert you of the day. Most people wake up confused, and further allows this main stress hormone to take over. It could lead them to doing things they’re not in control of. This is why it’s important to have a morning routine.
