TODAY IS THE DAY.
In 2020, Brent felt God was motivating him through a recurring dream about scaling a seemingly endless mountain. After finally reaching the summit, he clearly heard the words: “Now, what are you going to do?” Accepting the challenge, he penned The Gravity of Up, where he chronicles his arduous passage from brokenness to holistic health. His autobiographical book is a resource for not only business-minded leaders, but anyone looking to overcome their past for a more plentiful future.
Moving up might feel like something too daunting to achieve, but the good news is that up is a direction not a destination. Today is the day you begin moving forward as author Brent Yates shows you how to unshackle and propel yourself into a more abundant life.
You might be battling with some of the same issues that Brent had—depression, loneliness, and feeling life was without purpose—or maybe you simply feel stuck right now. The Gravity of Up is a blueprint to lose the old, negative thoughts and embrace a new world-altering mindset. Now, happy and healthy, Brent is living proof that the formula works and is eager to help you move up!
YOU READY TO GO HIGHER?
I am honored that Brent asked me to close out the book with these mental exercises. Each one of these is based on the very same coaching I gave Brent over the last twelve years. He wanted me to include these exercises because he knows that if you use them as he has, you can reprogram your mindset as well. Even if you don't have the money for a coach, these visualization exercises will make a difference. As long as you do the work consistently, you can experience growth as Brent did in his life.
The work begins with an introduction to what visualization is. Then the questions ask you to reflect on your own life story and do the visualizations that you can download below.
PREPARING FOR YOUR DAY
Create a practice every day for five to fifteen minutes where you breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth to center your body. During that time visualize your day. Create an elevated thought around your actions. See yourself being more present. Take this as far as you want.

Take time to write down at least twenty life victories to start building your positive fuel list. Then sit with them every morning and breathe them in. Feel the success of the moments and see the person that you are in them.

GROWING THROUGH ABUNDANCE AND FLOW
How are you motivated to change? Is it only when life gets painful or there is a problem? Look back at your life and see where you have changed. See what motivated that change. There are only two paths to growing-the path of pain and struggle and the path of abundance and flow.

RESET YOUR PERSPECTIVE
Create a "Reset Your Perspective" exercise. To do this, combine your victory list with a visualization. With your eyes closed and breathing properly, see a timeline of your life in your mind as if you are looking at a horizon. See how many things you have accomplished and have overcome.

OBSERVING MY HUMANNESS
How often do you observe your actions and choices? Take time at the end of the day to reflect on your day and look for moments when you reacted with your ego or humanness. These will usually be tied to one of the more uncomfortable emotions such as impatience, fear, doubt, lack, worry, or some version of any one of these.

GETTING CLARITY ON THE SITUATION IN FRONT OF YOU
When you find yourself in a challenging situation, take a look back at all the small choices you made that put you there. See how much they mattered to the overall outcome. Let this exercise put you in a more mindful state as you make choices in your everyday life.

How often is your mind either in the past or the future? Are you looking at the mistakes of the past, or worried about the future? First, take a day to observe your thoughts. Keep a tally card to mark each time you are either in the past or future. That night, reflect on how many times you were out of the present.

BREATHING IN MY TRUTH
How often do the negative events outside of you, or even the ones inside of you, affect your energy and bring you down? If you said often, then that would be normal because it typically does that. The challenge I ask you to take up is to find an energy within you through visualization and breath and focus on it every morning.

Take time to observe you body and how it feels when you are stressed. Notice where you are stressed. Notice where the stress goes. Take time to sit down in a chair and do some deep breathing. Focus on that breath, in through the nose to the body-specific part. When you breathe out, feel that area relax.

How seriously do you take mental preparation? If you want to be ready for a conversation, meeting, sale, or new stage in life, you have to mentally prepare. Then you don't leave it up to chance.

Think about how blessed you are to have the body you have. What would it be like to celebrate it through movement today? You don't have to train simply because you're overweight or want bigger muscles. Move your body to say thank you. How would it feel to train with gratitude versus feeling you are not enough?
