How Mental Fitness Can Save Your Life and Business (w/Marc Champagne)
In this episode, we talk about mental fitness and how to pause and reset your mind. This will help you focus on the things that matter, whether for your personal life or career as an entrepreneur.
Marc is a mental fitness coach, but he came from building a huge app in the personal development space in mental fitness, an app meant for journaling. And after that, he decided to shut down his app. And go with training teams and individuals and writing a book called “Personal Socrates”.
It's an amazing episode, Marc is just an amazing person. You get so much value and ask many great questions that you guys can all ask yourselves. This one hour, it just opened me up so much emotionally. I really hope you enjoy this episode.

Timestamps & Gold Gems:
Topic : Asking the Right Questions
[13:19 - 13:34] Marc Champagne ⭐Gold Gem :
“When minds stop functioning or aren't functioning optimally, I don't care what you're working on or what you're doing in, in your life, you're not doing it at your full capacity and probably most importantly, it doesn't feel good.”
[15:44 - 16:00] Marc Champagne ⭐Gold Gem :
“I think if you're gonna prioritize something, it should always be mental fitness first because it's your mind that tells you to go and be physically fit or to go and exercise or to be conscious of what you're consuming, whether that's nutrition for your body or nutrition for your mind.”
[17:08-17:30] Marc Champagne ⭐Gold Gem :
“Make your list of mental fitness activities that you can default to, on a consistent basis for the training, but also when you're in these moments where your mind feels overwhelmed, or there's too much going on, or you feel like you don't have control over the next decision, you go to any one of those activities and it pops you out of that narrative”
[37:21 - 37:50] Marc Champagne :
“We think of journaling as like pen to paper, blank notebook, just a way you go, right? What's on your mind type thing. But if you really think about the practice itself, the practice behind journaling is reflection. And we all reflect, we all ask questions. We all think about certain things. It's just whether, just like anything, whether you want to do that with more intention and train your mind to ask better questions”
[48:57-49:12] Sagi Shrieber:
“ One of the most profound experiences she gave me was when she was asking questions, it was like, Sagi, and I was rambling about everything that I have going on and what I don't know what to do. And she's like, what are you doing out of love? And what out of fear?”
[50:04-51:07] Marc Champagne :
“If you're, again, something comes up in the day that pisses you off or throws you off your game, close your eyes and you think of who is that one person that you're super grateful towards, but have not thanked lately. You know, like bring them to your, to your mind. And just think about like, why, like what fills your heart about that person?
What have they done? What would you like to say to them? And the next step is a simple one, you can either express that message to them or just send them a text message. Like right now, just say, just thinking about you. Hope you have a good day. And here's the thing that happens. I mean, you just made their day.
They'll probably write back saying, Thanks for making my day. Now they just made your day. And what's not happening at that moment is your mind is not spinning in a survival state of mind. Your mind is now in a, in. Happy, motivated, grateful state, which is the thriving state.”
