I was standing at the edge of the cliff w/ two options in front of me.. I could either turn around & return to my comfort zone OR I could take the leap of faith & jump.
I had never been in a situation quite like this before .. To be honest I was a bit overwhelmed w/ emotions & extremely nervous, but at the same time I felt extreme clarity in my decision making process. It felt as if I was being pulled in a certain direction. As if something much greater than myself was guiding me. This brought me a lot of comfort.
In that moment I had a decision to make. Long story short, I jumped ..
Post workout meals ..
For as long as i’ve been into fitness i’ve heard the debate over what type of post workout food is the most ideal to ensure maximal recovery & gainzzz. Or whether post workout food is necessary at all for that matter.
It’s 3am & I just hopped out of a shower set on ‘fully cold’.
It fucking sucked, but I did it anyways.
Everyone loves junk food..
Aside from those weirdos that claim to not. Even then, i’m skeptical..
People are full of excuses.. It’s never their fault that things don’t go as they had hoped. This applies to business, relationships, diet & everything in between.
One of the most important aspects to diet success is always being prepared.. There’s no reason to ever be unprepared.
The best way to be set yourself up for diet success is meal prepping & planning ahead.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Consistency is key..
No matter the endeavor or goal you’re chasing, consistency is going to be one of the biggest determining factors in your success. If you aren’t able to show up every single day & ‘deposit the coin’ then you’re doomed for mediocrity.
I grew up in the gym.. Although I have great parents that have taught me oh so much in life, the gym has served as another parent figure in a sense. Arguably the most crucial years of my development as a human (16 years old until present day) were spent in the gym. I met my biggest mentor to date in the gym and we still train together every single day.
Long story short, stepping into the gym at 16 years old changed the trajectory of my entire life and I believe it can do the same for you..
Accountability is something that everyone needs.. No matter the age or level of success. This becomes very important when you’re attempting to break life long habits & create a new life for yourself.
Serge Nubret, a well-known bodybuilder from the Arnold Era, aka the Golden Era, has arguably one of the most ridiculous looking chests ever. This was one of the reasons why Serge was able to compete w/ Arnold for Mr Olympia multiple times.
Whether you wanna be a millionaire, missionary or a street bum, the decision is yours. This is one of the coolest things about the world we live in..
YOU control YOUR OWN destiny.
