I could walk in here with all the aggression in the world. Fight with my wife.. Mad at the family.. Pissed off at a friend.. After a hour in here it’s gone. It’s just gone. There’s no better feeling. There’s nowhere I would rather be. And that’s why I think after 15 or 16 years.. I still wanna do it more than ever. Nothing is gonna change the way I’m prepping. Nothing is gonna change the amount of effort that I give. The only way to truly know how good you are is to give it everything, show up at your best.. And then see where you stand. And if you don’t win.. Atleast you can walk away with your head held high. Make sure you give it everything you got in the gym. Train like no one is watching. If you quit something once it becomes easier to quit it every single time after that. So when I tore my quad last week I decided on the spot, it’s not gonna get me. And I don’t even give a shit if I show up on stage and it’s still swollen. It’s not gonna get me. Nothing is gonna get me. Because we’re not just building BODIES we’re building CHARACTER. Bodybuilding is not just about how big you can get.. It’s about mental strength and mental toughness. I think if you don’t have mental toughness, you’re in the wrong sport. You guys that are out there, you’re competing and getting ready for shows, you’re hungry.. You’re dieting, you’re tired.. Just stick it out Because when it’s all said and done you’re the only person that’s gonna know if you didn’t cheat. You’re the only person that knows if you gave it a 100%. In your gut when the show is done whether you win or lose You will know whether you cut any corners or not. And if you didn’t.. You walk away proud. All I’m saying to you guys is this.. If you wanna be great If you wanna make it in the sport There’s nothing stopping you but there has to be a a love for it. You know deep in your heart if you actually worked your ass off or not. Because I know there’s times.. When I come in here and train When I take a set off I remember it the next day. My goal is to leave here and know that I didn’t give up on one set. I’M GONNA SHOW YOU HOW GREAT I AM. It doesn’t matte if you’re a pro or a fkn amateur.. It’s whoever has got the strongest mental state to keep going. SACRIFICE WITHOUT REGRET Train like nobody is watching, do it for yourself.
