From three trips to the point of rock bottom - physically, mentally, and finally spiritually to building a life and business worth talking about, my name is Isaac Wilkins, and I'm a student of fitness and performance training, mental toughness, and finding your purpose in this life.
I share everything I learn about fitness, nutrition, higher purpose, mental toughness, and overcoming adversity so you can break free of your rut and win.
This show is for former athletes, warriors, and those who have a vision and feeling inside them that they are able and destined for more. Regardless of your current situation and struggles, big or small, you have that drive to level up, winning, and getting the self-respect you desire.
I share all of my most significant insights and clarity from my personal journey as well as lessons and strategies gleaned from my clients' journeys. I interview some of the most successful visionaries, celebrities, and thought leaders who've been to the wall and back.
96: The Four-Point Goal Achievement System
Goals are common, and methods of achieving them are a dime a dozen, as well. So why don't people succeed in following through with what they set out to do? Often it's their own brain that sells them out.
Here I outline a four-step process that I use with my clients (and myself) to break down a goal, get your brain on board, make sure it's heading in the right direction, and help insulate you from Shiny Object Syndrome. Give it a listen and get your achievement on point!
95: You're Chasing the Wrong Goal (and don't know it)
Every year, around now, people make New Year's Resolutions... Or they revel in moral superiority because they don't.
Either way, change doesn't happen.
So why not? Why is change so hard? Lots of reasons, but there's one big, sneaky reason that I bet you haven't thought of... Your goal isn't really your goal.
Listen and find out what I mean, and give yourself an instant boost in your chance of success.
94: One Thing To Break the Inertia Cycle
I've been fortunate to work with many people, particularly former athletes and warriors who've been able to break free of their comfortable misery, being stuck in the doldrums of a ho-hum life, and find their spark again. There's been one quality that's really stood out among those who've been successful in their transformations and those who haven't. It's the quality that helps them face through adversity, find their grit, and keep going when they want to quit or get distracted by something else.
93: The Fallacy of External Leadership
I have so many conversations with people who start plans with the best of intentions. They follow the plan, they do well, and then something happens. They fall off. Something derails them. Eventually they find another plan or guru and repeat the process. Why does this happen? In the moment, it can be a lot of things. However, at its core... it's all about self-leadership. Here's why.
92: The Behavior Change Formula
We know that for longterm change, behaviors have to change. What does that mean, though? What if there was a formula to break that process down into parts, pinpoint exactly where it might need some help, and even to help troubleshoot it if things aren't going as well as you hoped? There is, and I get into it here.
91: Goal Setter to Goal Achiever - Three Tips
It seems that so many of us forget that, when it comes to goals, setting them is only the first step. You've got to achieve them next! Of course, that can be a lot harder. It's not just because goals are hard. There's some real brain principles involved here that often stand in your way. Here's three quick tips that I use with my clients, including a couple you don't hear talked about much, to short-circuit those brain roadblocks and get you actually achieving what you set out to do.
