My Experience with LIFE’s Mental Fitness Challenge

I decided to do a detailed review of the Mental Fitness Challenge put out by LIFE.

I’ll highlight each part of the MFC (in no particular order) and give my thoughts. If you’re taking the Mental Fitness Challenge, I’d love to hear your feedback on it so far. As I get feedback, I’ll incorporate it into my review.

The Mental Fitness Challenge is a success system designed around the 13 Resolutions as laid out in Orrin Woodward’s book, Resolved – 13 Resolutions for LIFE. The 13 resolutions, broken down into three categories are,

Private Achievements

1. I resolve to discover my God-given purpose.

2. I resolved to choose character over reputation anytime they conflict.

3. I resolve to have an attitude of gratitude.

4. I resolve to align my conscious (ant) with my subconscious (elephant) mind towards my vision.

Public Achievements

5. I resolve to develop and implement a game plan in each area of my life.

6. I resolve to keep score in the game of life.

7. I resolve to develop the art and science of friendship.

8. I resolve to develop financial intelligence.

Leadership Achievements

9. I resolve to develop the art and science of leadership.

10. I resolve to develop the art and science of conflict resolution.

11. I resolve to develop systems thinking.

12. I resolve to develop Adversity Quotient.

13. I resolve to leave a legacy by fulfilling my purpose and vision through living the 13 Resolutions.

Each week focus is put on one of the resolutions starting with the first and finally making it through all 13. Check out my review of Resolved: 13 Resolutions for LIFE.

The Components of the Mental Fitness Challenge

Self-Assessment Test

The self-assessment test included in the MFC is composed of 130 questions (10 for each resolution) in random order where you rank yourself between 1 and 10 (10 – totally describes me, 1 – doesn’t describe me at all). The results are then plotted on a circular graph. An anonymous test result is shown below:

Does Science Disprove God?

“Is evolution really true?”, “Could all of this have really happened by chance?”, “If it did happen by chance, is there any purpose or meaning in life?”, and many other questions marked the beginning of my journey to putting my faith into Christ.  Thankfully, in college, one of my fraternity brothers had the courage to hand me a book from Lee Strobel – The Case for a Creator. Being an engineer, I figured that if God is real and the Bible is true, there must be evidence to prove it. While that book didn’t answer all of my questions, it was a very important starting point for me. Recently my church, Woodmen Valley Chapel, started a series called, “Think Again – Truth, Doubt, and Questions that Matter.” It has been digging into many major questions like those I listed earlier. All of the sermons in the series are available online as a video or .mp3. Check them out here: Woodmen Valley Chapel.

As part of the Think Again series we had the privilege of having Lee Strobel in to speak live on the topic, “Does Science Disprove God?” In this talk he boils down many of the important parts of his book, The Case for a Creator, into an engaging, 1-hour journey into the universe and how it was created by God. Watch it below:

If you have more questions, there are many, many resources that can be helpful. Leave a comment below and I can point you to the resources that answered my questions to the satisfaction of a very detailed oriented engineer.

Remember, as my friend and mentor Tim Marks says, “Know why you believe what you believe!

God Bless,
