The Mental Fitness Challenge is a new life changing product from Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady and LIFE. The Mental Fitness Challenge, MFC for short, is meant to show anyone who is hungry for a change in their life, marked improvement in 90 days in their thinking, attitude, and most importantly, in their belief that they can and will get better through the right information! The MFC is sorely needed everywhere we turn as evidenced by the following experiences that my wife and I have had in the last few days!
I was talking to a good friend of mine the other day when he told me that his elderly grandma has 68 grown grandkids, and in the same breath he said that only 4 of the 68 are still married! I asked him if this was a common thing in the Latino community? He said, ‘no, we were not raised that way. I truly don’t know where its coming from, but its sad and out of control!’ The next day I was helping a delightful Christian gal in her mid 40s and a few other people look through some of our leadership material. I happened to glance over while this lady was staring down at one of our marriage packs in her hands. I told her she looked a little confused and asked her what was wrong? She said, ‘this pack looks great, but I don’t think I know even one married person’! I asked, ‘are you kidding? Is this pretty common in the African-American community?’ She said, ‘I guess it is!’ Last night my wife and I were watching our 9 year-old play baseball. My wife happened to sit next to what I guess you would consider the ‘team mom’. Cassie, my wife, is one of the best encouragers and listeners on the planet and instantly started talking and listening to this lady as she kept score for the team. Within 10 minutes this gal shared that her marriage was not going well, her relationship with her soon to be teenage daughter was shaky and volatile at best, she was in the middle of working 2 jobs, she is not talking with her adopted mom, and never gets to see her biological mom (who she says has a good relationship with) because of poor finances. This lady is a white Christian lady in her late 30s. I asked Cassie, ‘Is this a pretty common story that you hear?’ She said, ‘I hear it and see it all the time!’ My point with the above three stories is that ‘life train wrecks’ are happening all around us, in your community, in your neighborhood, at an epidemic pace! What can we do? How can we stop it? How do we reverse the decline and fall of the ‘American Community’? How can you avoid ‘life train wrecks’ in your own home?
With that being said, I hope you all have checked out and are excited about the Mental Fitness Challenge (MFC)! LIFE, a world-class leadership company, launched this ‘Flagship’ product at the end of April 2012. The challenge is based on Orrin Woodward‘s fantastic new book Resolved: 13 Resolutions for Life. The MFC is a simple, guided, 90 day approach to get better in any area of your life. With all the life train wrecks happening around us, and life’s casualty list growing daily, maybe even under our own roof, it is more important than ever to embody what Stephen Covey calls the 1st habit for success, being ‘proactive’ with getting better and pursuing a better life. The true product of the LIFE company, through the MFC, is to help people get ‘The life they always wanted’.
Yesterday, Orrin Woodward, shared a great perspective that he heard from a leadership associate down in Kansas about what the Mental Fitness Challenge should be used for. In healthcare, there are two main types of treatment: ‘Preventative’ and ‘Palliative’. ‘Preventative’ treatment is a proactive intervention, based on risk factors, and warning signs, to avoid a major health ‘train wreck’ such as a heart attack, cancer, or diabetes. ‘Palliative’ treatment is when you ignore the warning signs, and attempt to treat the problem after the ‘train wreck’ has already happened. Studies have shown that ‘Preventative’ treatment is 10-1000 times less expensive than ‘Palliative’ treatment in terms of time, money and energy, not to mention 100s of time more effective in giving the patient ‘the health they always wanted’ to live a long and happy life.
- The MFC is a classic example of ‘Preventative’ care for all areas of life! Unfortunately, most people either have the ‘a life train wreck will never happen to me’ philosophy, or they are like the old hound dog laying on the farmers porch.”One day a traveling seed salesman was making sales calls to farmers on an old country road. Toward the end of a long day the salesman happen to see a farmer and his dog relaxing in the shade on the front porch of his little farm-house. The salesman walked up to the farmer and started to sell him on the features and benefits of his company’s seeds. Each time he started to talk the hound dog would start ‘bellowing’ and ‘barking’ loud as all get out. Finally, after being interrupted 3 times by the old dog, the salesman asked the farmer, ‘Mister, what in the heck is wrong with your dog?’ The farmer replied, ‘ Oh, he is laying on a nail that is sticking up out of the porch.’ The salesman looking confused and asked, ‘Well if it’s hurting him why doesn’t he get up and move?’ The farmer said chuckling, ‘Well, it hurts enough to yell and complain about it but not enough to do something about it and move!'”
Everyone, and I mean everyone, is ‘bellowing’ and ‘barking’ about something in their life! If it be their marriage, finances, job, health, children, relationships, government, depression, etc… They are headed fast and furious for a painful and expensive train wreck such as a divorce, bankruptcy, major health issue, an estranged relationship, rebelling and hurting children, job loss, or maybe even a suicide. The MFC is the best and least expensive ‘Preventative’ treatment on the planet to help you avoid a ‘life train wreck’ and to live ‘the life you always wanted’. You truly can’t afford not to take the Mental Fitness Challenge! For more information, find a LIFE distributor near you or go to http://www.mental-fitness-challenge.com.
