The ultimate measure of our health, fitness and even character is not our response in times of convenience, but in rather in the moments of great challenge. We NEED stress to grow, and to step into our true potential, but why do we feel “stressed out?”
As you read in my earlier notifications, there are two types of stress:
1. Eustress: productive, positive, adaptable stress.
2. Distress: destructive, negative, unadaptable stress.
The more eustress in your life, the greater you grow, the richer your quality of life, and the more potential you can unlock within. You need stress for your health, fitness and longevity. However, I wrote to you earlier, researchers have identified a very specific moment when Eustress begins the avalanche into Distress. The aches, pains, injuries, illnesses and diseases, the mental gremlins who corrode your attitude, the emotional sinkhole that cannibalizes your confidence, all appear at this one singular point in time. I am sure you agree that since stress-related disease is the number one killer in the world, it’ll be important to know exactly where that point is located.
Even if you’re only interested in a pain-free physique, then it’d be important to know how you can adapt and grow, without aches and injuries, because it happens as this distress happens at the same point in time. Yet, conventional health and fitness approaches tell you to “get tough” without any guidance on how to do so. They don’t understand the stress physiology defeating our attempts to modify our movement and nutritional behaviors. Either these professionals have never needed to climb from the bottom of the well, or they climbed out and warn you not to fall down there. Before you can be tough, you must be resilient:
–> Resilience: your ability to recover from excessive stress when it happens.
–> Toughness: your ability to resist excessive stress before it happens.
You can’t resist that defining line between eustress and distress unless you can step over it and recover underneath it rapidly. How could you resist excess if you don’t know where it is? People telling you to just “be tough” is like being told to not fall in a pit while walking in a completely dark room. Is it any wonder why we become frustrated over our pitfalls in unlocking our vitality, refining our pain-free physique and improving our quality of life?
Resilience is your climbing gear. Once you are resiliently anchored, then you can belay if you begin to slip. Once you gain resilience, you by definition of knowing the defining line, gain toughness.
Because I started so far down at the bottom of the well, born into the violence of post-traumatic stress, amplified by my learning disabilities, obesity and joint disease, I have had to invest my life in studying the impact of excessive stress upon our health, fitness, performance and longevity. Gaining resilience saved my life, and has given me the opportunity to help others change their lives.
There are measurable, trackable patterns to excessive stress, and if we know them, we can turn the lights on, and continue to improve our health and fitness without diminishing returns, without plateau, and without backslide into pains, injuries, illness and disease.
The PRIMAL STRESS library represents that lifetime of study distilled into a precision toolbox so that you can maximize your eustress and minimize your distress, so that you can become both resilient and tough, which I’d like to give you as a present to “pay forward” all of the gracious techniques and tools that my teachers gifted to me.
Tonight at 12 midnight, I am going to open the doors to get my entire PRIMAL STRESS: Revive - Survive - Thrive book and video library for absolutely free. No strings attached. You won’t even need to pay for shipping. You purely get for free everything I have published and produced in this package.
