You know when you get a new toy, and suddenly it’s all you want to play with? With the explosive launch and viral buzz of the Mental Fitness Challenge, it’s hard to believe I’ve only been at this for a few days, but it’s been a blast!
During a conversation with leadership expert and LIFE founder Claude Hamilton, he brought up P90X, the popular extreme home fitness program designed to completely destroy your body…okay, not really- I’ve actually tried it and enjoyed the results. But I love the comparison because the Mental Fitness Challenge is basically P90X for your brain. Instead of turbocharging our metabolisms, we’re turbocharging our thinking. And remember, everything from the neck down is worth minimum wage- it’s the neck up that moves us forward.
The Mental Fitness Challenge Self-Assessment Test
Naturally for me, one of the most fun parts of taking the challenge is the self-assessment test you get to take before starting. Who doesn’t love learning about himself/herself? Since the program is based on the 13 resolutions laid out in Orrin Woodward’s RESOLVED, the test questions are set up to get an idea of how we’re doing in each of those areas. They even show you a nifty chart to help you gauge your starting point (mine looked all kinds of skewed…lot’s of work to do). And, of course, the best part is that the test is free!
The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates once wrote, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Is yours? Jim Collins wrote in Good to Great that we must confront the brutal facts. So what’s stopping you? Take the test and begin embarking on a journey that could truly change your life forever.
