Mike Gillette-Expectations and The Bulls Eye-#356

Eric Fiorillo The Host of The Award Winning Motivation and Muscle Podcast Show Welcomes Army Paratrooper, SWAT Commander, Bodyguard to Fortune 500 Executives, a Record-Breaking Motivational Strongman, and writer and author Mike Gillette to the Broadcast.

Eric and Mike kick the show right off with the word expectations.

What does that word represent to you and how do we find the ways to meet our goals.

We talk about the trainers or trainees who read  a book, watch a you tube video or download a fitness product which is great in theory but until you have lived it and accumulated a few mental and physical scars you really haven’t lived it.

How important is the minds role in what you do?

Most people don’t have a system in place to even address this problem. Talkers talk and doers know how to do. Where are you everyday and do you have the mental power to withstand and test yourself repeatedly?

Eric explains to Mike how talent will take you very far until an injury transpires and you’ve never been mentally tested. How do you handle this? Do you cry in defeat or work harder then ever to regain your old form or strive to top it?

Expectations at any level are extremely high and Eric tells Mike what he’s after in 2016 and how he has set himself up to hit the big red bulls eye. Expectations aligned with good solid mental thought will drive you through injury, keep you connected to your sport which is so important and get you up and going with the strength of a lion and and the mental tenacity of a pitbull.

  1. Eric and Mike,
    Another awesome podcast interview!!! I have exchanged a few messages with Mike and follow much of what he does. I am also reading his book, “Mind Boss.” What he said about gymnastics is so true! My youngest son is a competitive gymnast (age 11) and had moved up to level 6 for this season. Just 6 weeks before his first meet of the season, he broke his hand. He was devastated. He still went to practice and did what he could and we also had him do a lot of visualization, which is something we started at the end of last season. The cast came off 3 weeks before his first meet and even though there were a couple of moves that he still didn’t have much confidence in, he still finished fourth overall! We will be in Vegas next month for a big meet and he will be able to see some Olympic hopefuls compete as well, which I think is a huge motivator.
    On a personal level, I “rediscovered” getting strong a little more than a year ago and this podcast is one of the resources that I use. I really appreciate all of the knowledge that you share. I have a dream of being able to bend steel bars so I am adding some things to my regular conjugate workouts to help me achieve this dream.
    Also, would love to hear an interview with Matt Wenning.
    Please keep up the great work! I have a lot of podcasts to catch up on.
