Mental Health Challenge

On the weekend of April 27th in Columbus, Ohio, the LIFE business held its Spring Leadership Convention. They launched their “flagship product” called the Mental Fitness Challenge. This ” Challenge” that Orrin Woodward, Claude Hamilton, Chris Brady and the rest of the founders of the “LIFE” business have put together is absolutely an amazing product to help all of us transform our lives.

There’s an ancient Chinese proverb that says “read 10,000 books, travel 10,000 miles.” the writer from whom I borrowed this quote explained it this way “This is a lifelong suggestion for expanding your horizons by gaining knowledge, experience, and seeing the world.” Now you may not like to travel and you may not be attracted to material things  but can you truly say that you’re living the life you’ve always wanted? If you’re anything like I was, you wake up in the morning and you think “is this it?” or maybe you know things aren’t the way you’d like them to be but you’re not sure how to change them or even worst you’ve given up years ago on living a life of excellence. Maybe, you’re doing pretty good but in the bottom of your heart you know there’s great out there.

What if there was a way to participate in a program of personal growth that could eventually help you tap into your fullest potential? Imagine “Living The Life You’ve Always Wanted.” Well folks that is exactly what the founders of “LIFE” are offering! This organization of top-notch leaders is led by Orrin Woodward, winner of the “2011 IAB TOP 10 SMALL BUSINESS AWARD“, rated number 6 “Leadership Guru” in the world, best-selling author and so much more. At the helm of this organization we also find Chris Brady, also best-selling author and number 11 “Leadership Guru”. These two men along with the other Policy Counsel Members have figured out how to package the knowledge and deliver it in such a way as to allow the common person like you and I to  achieve greatness.

The “MFC” starts out with a Self Assessment Test to allow us to establish a baseline and give us a glimpse into areas of strength and weakness that we need to work on. Once we have this baseline identified it’s a lot easier to put a game plan in place to allow us to maximize on our strengths and overcome our weakness.

I personally  challenge you to take the “MFC” and let’s grow together. North-America and the world for that matter need Leaders who are ready and willing to change in order to make a difference. Will you do your part in improving this great continent that we live in? I know it might sound like a huge goal but it starts with us taking responsibility for personal growth. I can’t wait to complete the 90 day challenge and see just how much I can improve!

Claude Hamilton has often told me, “get your thinking right and all else will fall in place”. That’s what the “MFC” is all about, it’s about having access to the right information then applying that information in our lives to allow us to Live The Life We’ve Always Wanted.

Enjoy the Journey, and come travel 10,000 miles with us!

    Great article Mike! I love the concept of traveling as it relates to not just the physical, but the mental and emotional self as well. I looking forward to sharing the journey with everyone who ‘picks themself’ to begin to change in order to live the life they’ve always wanted!

    Keep up the great work.

    Mike, great to see you’ve got your blog up and running!

    The Mental Fitness Challenge ( is the perfect first topic. I love the points you make about tapping into your “fullest potential”, creating a baseline to start a “game plan” and, Claude Hamilton’s ( ) “get your thinking right and all else will fall in place”.

    Travelling 10000 miles with the threat of “Flying Fried Chicken” sounds exciting! (just had to be there!)

    Take Care!

    You guys are great leaders!!! Awesome people to follow!!!

  13. Troy Gallant

    Hey Mike, living the life you always wanted. I think most people settle for what they have because they think that there is no way to achieve great. To prove to yourself that Great is available, emerge yourself in a self-directed education and stay the course with the Mental Fitness Challenge. The proof is in the people, people like you and Sonia. Keep it up buddy and we’ll be seeing you on those trips. Troy
