How to  Prepare Yourself for Life’s Challenges

Welcome to the Level Up Your Life Podcast hosted by the enthusiastic and impassioned Mark Black. Each Week Mark will lift your spirits with great recommendations and inspiration to help you get where you’re going. This podcast is for everyone! Mark isn’t a one-trick pony. In fact, he’s got a lot up his sleeves. Get ready to see amazing changes in your life.

In this episode, Mark asks us to change our mindset surrounding problems and challenges in our lives. Instead of seeing these as bad times, Mark recommends turning things around and looking at it from a training perspective. Much in the way a professional athlete does.

Three things you can do today to change your mindset toward adversity:

  1. Intentionally challenge yourself more often
    1. Intermittent Fasting
    2. Convenience
    3. Exercise (physical/mental)
    1. Helps us endure
    2. Teaching moment
    3. Intentionality
  2. Practice gratitude
    1. Preparation
    2. Reminds us what we have accomplished
    3. Capability and capacity to overcome
  3. Connect with the times you overcame major challenges

“What you do is not nearly as important as you doing something.”

“During recovery your body repairs and gains strength.”

“What in my life was very challenging and how did that prepare me or improve my life?”

“You will struggle in life. Will you struggle with meaning or not?”

“We need challenge to push us and to grow.”
