I just got back from spending 3 days in Jamaica with my business coach.
It wasn’t an easy decision to make.
My Europe trip got cut short to make it happen. Then I had several long flights to get there.
But it was worth it.
Because who you spend time around is the 2nd most important thing for your success in any area.
Leadership guru John Maxwell calls this the “Law of Proximity.”
The law simply states that the more time you spend with leaders, the more lessons you’ll learn.
This law is why my coaching clients get such great results.
And it’s what happened to me over the weekend.
I spent three days with 7 other coaches. 6 of them are doing much better than my business (even though I have more knowledge and experience than them).
The 7th made a big stretch to come to the event.
The biggest shift that happened was in my mindset.
I realized how small I was thinking with my business. Seeing the way the other coaches were running their programs showed me how I could improve my own.
You can’t get this inspiration from a book, podcast, or social media post.
You can only get it in person.
So my challenge to you is who do you need to spend time with to level up you’re own success in your life?
Here is your Unstoppable After 40 Friday Digest:
1. The No. 1 exercise ritual for a ‘longer life’.
Maybe you’re hitting the gym regularly, but are you still feeling like the Tin Man when it comes to bending down or sliding out of your sleek sports car? That’s a red flag.
For example, I had a client who was in his 60s, and he was saying he drove a Porsche, a 911, and he was having trouble getting in and out of his car even though he was exercising every single day.
Mobility isn’t about how much you can lift or how far you can run; it’s about maintaining your body’s ability to move freely and smoothly. It’s the difference between feeling like a well-oiled machine or a rusted-out relic.
So here’s the deal: Specific mobility drills target the muscles and joints you need to keep supple for that fluid, youthful movement.
Don’t let stiffness hijack your hustle. Make mobility exercises your pre-workout ritual, and stay agile in the game of life. Your joints will thank you, and you’ll thank yourself every time you glide out of that car with ease.
Here are two examples of mobility exercises:
2. The health metric that you can’t ignore if you’re over 40.
Testosterone isn’t just about libido; it’s the cornerstone of your vitality. This hormone is critical for maintaining muscle, bone strength, red blood cell production, and your emotional fortitude.
It’s what keeps you feeling like a legend in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Now, let’s get real—research shows a link between low testosterone and the blues.
And it’s not just about the total T count, which should be between 300-1000 ng/dL.
Free testosterone—that’s the stuff not hitching a ride on proteins like SHBG—is what your body can actually use, and it should be between 9-30 pg/mL.
Here’s the kicker: Symptoms trump numbers. You could be within the “normal” range and still feel off. That’s why consistent testing and monitoring are key, and it’s something I focus on in my coaching program.
But before you jump on testosterone replacement therapy (TRT), consider this: Lifestyle is a game-changer. A diet that’s on point, regular muscle-building workouts and cardio, quality sleep, and keeping stress in check can jack up your T levels naturally. I’m be blunt. The number one cause of low T is excess body fat. Fat cells contain an enzyme called “aromatase” that converts testosterone into estrogen.This isn’t bro science. This is a well-understood phenomenon.
Here’s a graphic on the hormonal pathways involved. It’s a little technical. But you get the idea.
So, keep those T levels in check. It’s not just about a fitter body; it’s about keeping your edge, your mood, and your quality of life on point. Remember, your greatest wealth is health.
And the key to maintaining your health is to be data-driven and stay on top of these metrics.
