During this episode, Mike and Nate discuss the concept of weaponizing bodies, upleveling relationships, the core four, and what Nate learned when he served in Kuwait. 

Main Questions Asked:

  • What is it like to ‘have it all’ when it comes to our bodies?
  • What are the results of your clients after ‘weaponizing their body?’
  • What insight do you give guys who say it’s hard to go to the gym?
  • What is the deal with being addicted to the ‘pump?’
  • What areas are you constantly giving guidance and mentoring on?
  • Give us some insights on upleveling the relationship side of things.
  • What have you learned about business and how it’s changing?
  • What else should the modern day business owner start to think about and pay attention to?
  • If you could rewind time, what is something you would do differently?
  • What were some of the leadership or life lessons you got from serving in Kuwait?

Key Lessons Learned:

Weaponizing Your Body

  • The ‘entrepreneurs trap’ is to feel as if you are the ‘only one.’
  • Without a strong relationship and strong body, your business is going to suffer.
  • The number one thing that most people neglect is the number one thing that controls all, which is health. If health goes, it affects your relationships, business, and wealth.
  • You are going to pay for your health now, or you’ll pay for it later. Either way, you will pay.

Upleveling Relationships

  • Nate also provides mentorship on relationships and business. A lot of people know what to do but are afraid to take the steps to make changes.
  • It’s not good enough for the man to provide financially; there are other needs as a husband and a father and to be present in general.
  • Men need to be clear on what they want and what their wives wants.
  • These conversations are difficult, and people are afraid that they will hear things that they don’t want to hear, and it will change things.
  • Children have a sense of whether their parents are truly connected, so it’s important to be a great model. Children will follow the lead that they have seen.
  • Open and honest communication with a spouse and being on the same page can never be overrated.
  • When people have kids, the attention shifts focus onto them and the marriage can suffer.
  • It’s easy to put the relationship as a number two or three priority when it should be number one

Business Insights & Accountability

  • Being overwhelmed can be paralyzing for a business owner and result in an entrepreneur stopping being productive.
  • Get clear on where you are and where you want to be. Set a plan in place and set daily habits that aren’t overwhelming but productive and get you closer to a target.
  • Constantly take simple daily actions that will mean progressing every day.
  • You have to be proactive; plan your week, guard your time, and don’t let it be stolen.
  • Having accountability groups is a great way to check in and have others ask you the hard questions and not let you slack.
  • People will often be more likely to let themselves down than they are to let others down.

Rewinding Time

  • Nate would have hired support staff earlier on so he could have created revenue and income in the business.
  • It is difficult for people to spend money without the experience of knowing that in the end it will make you more money than it cost you up front.
  • If you have the support, you can get things done that will bring in the money faster.

Leadership & Life Lessons from Serving in Kuwait

  • Nate put his business on hold and left his wife for a year.
  • He was a first lieutenant and platoon leader, and was responsible for 40 men 24/7 for 15 months.
  • Nate learned a lot about working with a group of men and the different personalities that would pop up being around the same people for such a long time.
  • The transition back into civilian life was much harder than Nate expected.

So, as I had these weird feelings going through me I didnt just hand out a participation medal to everyone, even though I kind of wanted to I declared a Winner, gave some tips and pointers to the Losers on what they can do to improve A hug, and a kiss and told them to keep it up and continue work at it Interesting lesson for myself and the kids and they responded great Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
