Take a look in the mirror.

Look into your soul.

Who are you?

Who do you aspire to be?

Is what you’re doing right now what you want to be doing?

Are you working hard enough, or have you been cutting corners?

Have you really been “grinding” or are those social media posts merely a façade of who you want to be?

Is what you’re preaching smoke and mirrors to disguise your true reflection?

You want to be great at something?

You have to fucking live it…

How can you expect someone to do what you’re telling them to if you’ve never done it yourself?

That’s a fraud.

You’re better than that.

I don’t claim to be great in this business.

I just know that I sure as hell give it everything I got, every day to get better in the pursuit of greatness.

Doing so has enabled me to grow. As a coach. As a business owner. As a lifter. As an athlete. As a human being.

I’ve learned that growth in anything takes time. It takes creating the right daily rituals and staying disciplined enough to execute them until they eventually become habits. Then they will get done every fucking day.

Don’t let the noise of all the bullshit around you derail your path to greatness.

Whether you’re an athlete, coach, business owner or executive you will always be faced with some sort of adversity.

And it can certainly be distracting…If you let it.

Beware of the people around you. Sometimes the ones closest to you can be the ones that bring you down most.

You have to avoid those people. If you can’t then you better be well aware of the toxicity they produce and ignore that shit.

They say you are a product of the five people you surround yourself with most.

Choose wisely.

Don’t make excuses as to why you can’t attend a seminar or event.

Money, time, work.

These are all excuses.

Simply ways for you to justify laziness to yourself.

You are holding yourself back.

You want something bad enough, you’ll find a way. And you sure as hell won’t let others talk you out of it.

Meet the right people. Read the right books. Listen to the right audio. Work like a man that is fucking possessed and will never consider throwing in the towel.

Work your fucking ass off!

Then, expect failure.

You will fail at some point. Everyone does whether you know it or not.

That doesn’t mean it’s over!

That means you have an opportunity to learn and grow.

Failure makes us stronger. Failure makes us better. Failure will teach you who truly cares about you. It will teach you how bad you really want something and how much you care.

In my opinion, failure is one of the keys to success…As long as you learn from it.

So embrace it, and let failure motivate you to becoming un-fucking-stoppable!

Don’t criticize others on their path.

Criticism that isn’t given constructively is a waste of energy and thought.

It’s a way for us to blow up our own egos out of jealousy and envy.

We criticize because we see others doing what they want in life.

Don’t do it, and avoid people that do.

Life is short.

Do what it takes to be able to do what you love.

That gives us joy.

That gives us fulfillment.

That gives us the energy to get the fuck out of bed and work tirelessly.

Everyday!

Most complain about their lives.

Their physique.

Their job.

Their relationships.

And play the victim roll.

They blame everyone around them for their circumstances instead of the one person that can actually change it!

These people want everything to be easy and simply handed to them.

Guess what… That ain’t the way this world works.

You want something… Hustle!

You want fulfillment…Sacrifice!

You want to change something about you… Work like a motherfucker every single day until you do!

The recipe is simple, folks. It always has been.

Create good habits, surround yourself with the right people, don’t complain or criticize and work your ass off.

And yes, I said simple…Not easy.

There is a huge difference.

The simplicity is in the formula.

The difficulty is in the discipline.

Discipline takes balls.

It takes effort.

It takes the willingness to make sacrifices and avoid the “I want it now” mentality.

We live in a world where everyone wants instant gratification.

Most have lost the grittiness it takes for delayed gratification.

Because delayed gratification takes hard work and discipline.

Well, so does success in every realm.

But I promise you that if you don’t deviate from your path you too will find the success you’ve been looking for.

Stay hungry no matter how far you go.

As I achieve things in my own life I realize that it’s the hunger within me that pushes me every day.

We all have our problems, no one is perfect.

It’s how we channel the fucked up shit inside of us that makes us who we become.

You can let it tire you, wear you out, drain you and pollute your mind, causing you to hate the life you’re living.

Or…

You can use your pain for energy.

Use it as a spark that is needed to light the fire inside of you and let that fire burn and push you to do what is challenging.

To do what is hard.

To do what frightens you.

Because we are all faced with fear.

Even the toughest fighters and the strongest lifters in the world are faced with it.

But they look that fear in the face and raise both middle fingers.

Embrace fear, you are human.

Grab fear by the throat and drag that shit down your path with you to freedom.

You were born to be great.

Be it. Live it. And pass it on.

No more smoke and mirrors.

No more pain and suffering.

This is your time.

This is your life.

Now live it the way it is supposed to be lived.
