How you do anything is how you do everything. Words to live by. As a coach one of the most difficult things for me to comprehend is lack of commitment. You put in half the work you get half the results. That is pretty cut and dry. I understand bad days, but consistent bad days just doesn’t make sense to me. Especially when you are in direct control of your own perspective. Your life sucks, change it! Everything is too hard for you, toughen up! You can do it!!!! This day in age everyone wants to bash the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality. I agree, it’s the worse. Common sense prevails against a big tie. In my gym daily I see people who are entirely turned off by or against the competitive mentality of our program or the “seriousness” of it, if you will. As a coach, common sense prevails against that. I mean…yes…it is cute to just show up and go through the motions. Everybody finishes…high fives! We had fun. You know what’s real fun, being ripped when you take your clothes off. It’s fun being confident in who you are. It’s fun not being insecure with yourself and your abilities. The ones who really see the most change are the ones in here competing their asses off daily. The ones MAKING the change. And I’m not talking about people trying to go to the games. I’m talking about people trying to beat who the were yesterday. It’s all mentality, mindset. What is yours? I get it! You just don’t wanna be that serious about it….then just don’t be that serious about your results either. For real y’all. They coincide unfortunately. I’m in here enough to know. Trust me, I have a fake hip and I’m not ever going to be as good as I could have been. I can relate to excuses BUT I’m still trying to beat myself daily because I’m trying to be the best me I can be. Let me restate. I am trying to kick my ass daily, and destroy who I was, grow into a man I’ve never been before. I embrace how weak I am and understand the pain I need to go through to become as strong as I am capable of. I’m not trying to be average. I ain’t even trying to talk average. You either get better or get worse. You don’t stay the same. Decide which direction you are going in today, then embrace your path. Realize you are in control and no one else. Embrace your journey as it unfolds good or bad and decide what kind of person you want to be. How you do anything is how your everything. It’s that simple.
