I wanted to go through that struggle .. .. To climb from the bottom all the way up to the top. It was really a challenge because everyone said it can’t be done. So because everyone said it can’t be done I was motivated then to get it done. People perform better in sports and everything else If you don’t have a PLAN B. I’m telling you I’ve never ever .. Had a PLAN B. I made a full commitment that I’m gonna go and be a bodybuilding champion. No matter what it takes, I would do the work. I would work over and over and over. Until I get it. So as soon as you set a goal, and you have a clear vision of where you want to go.. Then you go after it, and THAT is what creates then the enthusiasm . And that’s what creates then THE PASSION. Everything I ever did The thing that I heard out of people’s mouth was .. ”That’s impossible.” ”That can’t be done.” Everything is always impossible.. UNTIL SOMEONE DOES IT. I’m not talking about wanting to win Mr. Olympia.. NO.. We’re talking about just DO YOUR REPS. Pump up the body you know and get some blood in there. Whatever you can.. THAT is what creates kind of life in you. And therefore more enthusiasm, And you have a much more positive outlook on life. So you got to WORK HARD. I don’t start counting until it hurts. THAT is WORKING HARD. I was gonna be the one I said to myself. I’m gonna DO IT and I’m gonna show it to them!! To me it’s a way of life and I don’t even know what life is like without training. I train everyday. Young, old, women, men, it makes no difference who it is.. Everyone should be disciplined. That is what it’s all about. It’s in my blood and I will go to my grave with it. It means everything to me. What is not OK, is.. That when you fail you stay down. Whoever stays down is a loser. You ALWAYS GET UP. That is A WINNER!! HAVE A VISION. You gotta have a purpose, no matter what you do in life… You GOTTA have a purpose.
