Today's issue is brought to you by High Performance Founder. We help high-achieving entrepreneurs get lean, boost energy & build confident-looking bodies in a way that supports their busy lifestyle.

I just had a call with one of my clients. He like many others we work with had traded his health for his business and was experiencing lower energy levels, libido issues & was seriously lacking confidence.

After 8 months of working together, he added 13 pounds of muscle to his frame and was feeling better than he's ever felt since he was a teen.

Something I realized is everyone talks about losing weight but not many understand what gaining muscle can do for your confidence.

It doesn't matter if you're a man, woman, old or young...

Gaining muscle is a net positive for your life.

Don't sleep on taking the time to build muscle for yourself. It leads to more confidence and a better quality of life.

3 Ways To Become a Better Human

1. Fear Setting

Before you're about to make a big decision do an exercise called "Fear Setting".

Start with writing out what the worst-case scenario would be if you made that decision.

Then write out what the best-case scenario would be.

Then strategize various ways you can prevent the worst from happening and make the best-case scenario more likely.

2. Walking Meetings

6 powerful reasons to do walking meetings

Time in nature
Improved Health
Decreased stress
Increased creativity
Improved decision making
You can end them by walking back
There are way too many benefits to not do this.

3. Your Meal Schedule

Eating your meals at set times can be as important as sleeping on a schedule.

People talk a lot about circadian rhythms and establishing a regular sleep schedule yet bedtime timing is only one cue your body uses.

Eating meals at set times helps regulate melatonin, ghrelin, leptin, and other hormones that affect your sleep cycles.

A Quote to Finish Your Week Strong

"You were lucky enough, smart enough, and quick enough to be born.

You beat many millions of other sperm for that opportunity. You were clever enough and tough enough to survive the challenges and illnesses of childhood.

And you are clever enough now to be interested in becoming a better person, or else you wouldn’t be reading these words.

Doesn’t all this tell you something?

Your body, mind, and soul all want you to become the best person you can be, even if you don’t consciously know it yet."

- Tim Bean

The odds of you being born are 1 in 400 quadrillion. You were put on this earth to become the best version of yourself. Believe this.

Onwards and upwards,

- Dan
