I’m a momma’s boy — and proud to be! Here’s why… – My mom literally saved my life 3 times: * 1. Once when I was choking to death when I was about 5 years old. She didn’t panic, turned my little body upside down, and then removed the obstruction with her finger! * 2. When I was 14 I had a tumor that damn near killed me. And the worst part was the first “expert” surgeon would have made me bleed out on the operating table because he was unqualified to do the surgery. My mom didn’t trust him, so got a second opinion that SAVED MY LIFE! * 3. When I was in my late-teens and very early 20’s I struggled through depression and substance abuse. Nearly everyone had given up on me or wanted me to at least “get serious” on my own. Not my mom! She was there to relentlessly support me, unlike any other person on earth. – This is why I talk to my mom nearly EVERY DAY, sometimes TWICE. Think that’s lame? Don’t care! Proud to be a momma’s boy to this incredible woman and celebrate her giving me life….over and over and over on this #MothersDay 🤗🤗🤗 – And thanks to all the Moms out there who support their pains in the ass like me! 🙏🏻

See the dude in this picture? Here’s something kind of cool… He was in my @sbagov mentorship group a year ago at this time. – Working together, we took his company from $500,000 in annual revenues to $3,000,000 in one year. Yes, you read that correctly — 6x the top line! – I am not sharing this to boast; hell — maybe he would’ve done it without me anyway. I’m sharing this because outside eyes — a coach, mentor, guide, etc. — are invaluable in just about every aspect of life, and in nearly every arena, from sports to business to whatever journey you may be on. – It’s #mentalhealthawareness month, and I’d say that typically men are siloed creatures. Even more so when they are also #entrepreneurs. This can be a deadly combo. – Financial stress + isolation can quickly push someone over the edge. (Why #suicide is a top killer of men under 50.) – Men need to stop siloing themselves and need to get comfortable talking, sharing, and leaning on others as needed. – The upside of all that is not only a healthier mental state but maybe even a business that grows 6x in a year! – #Repost @jeff.halevy ・・・ Excited for my new semester of small business mentorship with my @sbagov mentees! — This program is FREE if you have a female or minority-owned business (M/WBE). Excellent resources + mentorship! — Join us to turn Assets -> Revenue -> Profits -> CASH! 💵 — #entrepreneurship #ladyboss #entrepreneur #businesswoman #businessowner #smallbusiness

Weak hamstrings? Do you suck at glute ham raises (GHRs)? – You’re not alone. – Even @halevylife’s well-muscled answer to a young Rob Lowe, @andrewmalkiel.fit, who posts multi-bodyweight squat numbers couldn’t crank out more than a single set of a few. (And yes, he’s single, ladies….probably because of his weak hamstrings! 😂😂😂) – One of the fastest ways to improve your GHRs is to just get gravity working for you: pop a couple of plates under the front to elevate the GHT. Soon you’ll be repping harder than an Herbalife seller on IG. 🤣 – But seriously, it is important to address these weak links, because otherwise another body part picks up the slack (in Andrew’s case, his back), and that’s a fast track to Snap City. – Hit me with a comment below if you’re going to try these out and I’m happy to review your video of them and give you pointers — or a set and rep scheme to bump up your GHR game.

Does your personal trainer or gym guarantee your success? — People said I was insane for offering no-fine-print money back guarantees on fitness results at @halevylife (Trust me, I’m insane for entirely different reasons 🙃) — I still think it’s insane that our industry is not held accountable for delivering results. — This time four years ago. #flashbackfriday

How do I win more business? How do I stand out in a crowded marketplace? How do I get out of debt and get in the black? – One word answer: BELIEF. – Before you pounce on me for spewing more Instagram-friendly woo-woo BS, just hear me out. – I have seen some of the best laid plans fail from nothing more than self-doubt. – Self-doubt isn’t fear. No, no, no, no, no. Fear is a natural response to something we believe may harm us. If you’re never afraid, you’re not human. – Self-doubt also isn’t cockeyed optimism. Just believing in yourself with a crap game plan — a la The Secret — is a recipe for definite misery. – Self-doubt is not cognitive either. Two different people can have the same set of circumstances, but one sees a path to a win, the other a path to a loss. – Self-doubt, in my humble opinion, is entirely spiritual. It has very little do with pop psychology explanations and more to do with your “WHY.” – Self-doubt comes from either not having a Why or having a weak Why. – True confidence, the opposite of self-doubt, doesn’t stem from bravado, “fearlessness (no such thing), or having the right genes. Confidences comes from having the “right” Why. Period. – The book I’m pointing to was one of my favorite books growing up. The moral of the story. It tells the story of Louis Pasteur and his search for an “invisible enemy” — which elicited nothing but mockery. But his Why, saving lives, was so strong that he proceeded to do so in ways that still save lives to this very day. (Sorry anti-vaxxers! 😂) – So what do you do when you feel self-doubt? Don’t drum up fake courage or use The Secret. Get zeroed back in on your Why. Know your Why. Live your Why. Your Why is what lives on. Your Why is your legacy. Your Why is why you’re here. 👊 – Thanks for listening to my rambling. I am purposely going back to edit this. I hope this helps and please drop a comment if you agree! (And even if you don’t 🙃) – You never know who your comment might help!

It’s spring! (Don’t celebrate yet.) – The winter is cold but spring’s warmth will inevitably come. – The night is dark but the morning sunlight will inevitably come. – Times may be tough but easier ones will inevitably come. – Everything in nature, even our lives, has a rhythm and season. – Don’t get discouraged by the cold, the dark, or the toughness. – Accept that things will be as they are–you can’t fight nature–and do everything you can to stay warm, in light, and in the game. – Just #neverstopstepping and #berelentless

How much do you sit? (And does it really kill?) – Yes. – And I was recently honored to speak about it at UBS. – A meta analysis of 13 studies found that sitting 8 hours a day is just as risky as smoking or being obese. – And…the same study found that just an hour of moderate exercise a day can offset this risk. – But you don’t get off that easy… because another study found that 10 hours a day of sitting still indicates damage to heart tissue (troponjns in blood), and yet another found that it thins the part of the brain necessary for memory – the medial temporal lobe – something that is associated with cognitive decline, #dementia and #Alzheimers! – And even if it doesn’t kill you, it will still “kill:” sitting a lot will wreak havoc on your body—from your neck to your shoulders and your back. – I’ll post on how to remedy the orthopedic aches and pains soon, but in the meantime, stand up! (Just drink a lot of water…it’ll force you to get up, I promise 🚰🚽😂)

Have you ever given up on anything? – I have. – I actually only gave up once that I can remember. But knowing that I did stung so badly afterwards that I swore I’d never do it again. – Turns out quitting once can actually be the greatest way to ensure you never quit again. – Have you heard of Florence May Chadwick? – She was the first woman to swim the English Channel in both directions, setting a time record each time. – In 1952, Florence attempted to swim the 26 miles between Catalina Island and the California coastline. As she began, she was flanked by small boats that watched for sharks and were prepared to help her if she got hurt or grew tired. After about 15 hours a thick fog set in. Florence began to doubt her ability, and she told her mother, who was in one of the boats, that she did not think she could make it. She swam for another hour before asking to be pulled out, unable to see the coastline due to the fog. As she sat in the boat, she found out she had stopped swimming **just one mile away from her destination.** Two months later, she tried again. The same thick fog set in, but she succeeded in reaching Catalina. – You never know if you’re inches or a mile away from your destination, so #nevergiveup!
