Stay In Your Lane Heard that phrase hundreds of times in basic training from our Drill Sgts Quit focusing on how everyone else is doing Good or bad Focus on yourself and those close to you Its good to learn from others but do not get caught up worrying or wasting time on other peoples lives Spend less time in front of the TV or social media and more on you, your business, and the people right in front of you Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
Do You Go The Extra Step Do the unexpected above and beyond Give more than you are required too Honestly, ask yourself that question Where do you stack up or rate in all areas of life Many of you may go above and beyond in business everyday Then show up at home late, ignore your kids, and message your girlfriend with your wife in the other room May be the unexpected, but not exactly going above an beyond Not only is going above and beyone in business, fitness, spirituality, or your relationships beneficial It is the right thing to do and will pay dividends for years to come And you will feel good while doing it, for what its worth Lt = Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
Everyone Wants To Be In The Commitment Club, Not Many Want To Comit It is fun and exciting to say you are going to comit To some it comes easy Like some, who are so used to lying, that they spew lies all the time and done think twice There is a rush that comes from saying you are going to do somehting big Create new results in your life that are a big deal Problem is, after the excitement wares off You realize there is no way you are going to do the work required to get that result you COMMITTED to You knew the whole time in the back of your mind you werent going to do it I get it Ive been there, Ive said I was going to do something and never followed through What if, for once, you truly committed? What if, you embraced the journey and the work ahead and did what you said you would do I can tell you its 100x better than any feeling you get from just saying you are committed Everyone wants in the Commitment Club, but no one wants to do the work required for the cover charge at the door!

Dont Be Ashamed Of What You Actually Want We limit ourselves and allow others to control what we want in life at times We worry about what others may think or what they will say If we actually do the things we want or pursue the intereste that we truly have Reality is, those are all stories Everyone else is running the same stories in their own head Keeping them from doing what they want, because of what they think you will say or think They are too busy worried about their own lives and stories to be concerned with yours Moral of the story, live your life, do what it is that you actually want Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle

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.
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.
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.
What You Say Is Not Always What You Mean In all areas of life this can/does show up In our fitness we may think our body is good (telling us one thing) Yet we bend over to pick up something and it pops (telling us another) In our spirituality/faith we think we are living one way Realizing after closer evaluation, realizing we are living something completely different In our relationships our spouse or we say one thing Completely meaning or expecting something different than what we heard In business we can think we are clear in our vision or message or direction to employees While being recieved by the marketplac, clients and employees in a whole different way Realizing this and being willing to take a look at it and take ownership of it Allows you to be more understanding, and also to take the steps necessary to course correct Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
Lesson In Appreciation From Prince With the sudden death of Prince this past week Appreciation and gratitude are coming to mind The lesson is that we often do not appreciate what we have until it is gone We take our spouse of children for granted until they are gone or all grown up We take our bodies for granted, feeding them junk, and neglecting them until untimely death or illness We take our business or profession and the opportunity right in front of us for granted, thinking the grass is greener elsewhere We neglect any connection with God until we need him (usually when one of the above occours in life unexpectedly) How can you appreciate the people in your life now The business that is right in front of you Your body and how you push it to see what it is capable of or the fuel that you put in it The connection with God that you may be lacking or desiring Listen to Princes music when he is still alive, go see him live, go to a game to see Kobe or Jordan in their prime before they retire Love your wife and kids, be present and engaged and involved with them before they leave or grow up Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
Get Your Mind Right Plan Your Mindsets We plan our daily activities Our actions What we want to accomplish and get done In the days, weeks, months ahead Do you plan your mindsets? Do you get your mind right before setting off in all areas of life It is just as important if not more so To plan our mindset, get our mind right As it is to plan ahead on what it is that we are going to do Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
Having Big Dreams vs. Realizing Them Created this podcast in celebration of a friend/coach of mine Tom Sroka being Drafted by the Grid League yesterday Many have big dreams, hopes, targets, aspirations that go unrealized For a multitude of reasons We listen to the naysayers the dream stealers We listen to our own stroies We resist the the time and the work that we realize it will take We want a guarantee that we will actually achieve those dreams We accept and choose being comfortable over the uncomfortableness necessary to accomplish big shit Some go through their entire life this way, never being able to experience the feeling of realizing their dreams The feeling of knowing you put in the work required and then some and finally realized the gold at the end of the rainbow That is what Tom Sroka was able to experience yesterday and I thought it was a fitting lesson In how to lead a Legacy Lifestyle and what it takes to have it all and be more than average To be great Lt – Nate Bailey Leader Of The Legacy Lifestyle
