A couple of years ago, I quit my job to build my own business.
Things were rough. My business was bleeding cash. I had moved to a new country to cut the cost of living. I didn’t know anybody in my new city. I had no friends. No girlfriend. I had to get my business off the ground. It was stressed.
That day, I woke up early to start working. Honestly, I didn’t even want to get out of the bed. There were so many things to do and I didn’t even know if anything I do will even work or not.
I still pushed myself out of the bed and went to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror and noticed that I looked terrific. All my diet and training efforts had paid their dividends.
My image in the mirror lifted me up. Within a couple of weeks I found a great girlfriend, I made new friends and my business started to take off.
That’s the power of being in great shape.
We All Have Problems
Nobody has zero problems. Everybody has problems in life.
You don’t have money?
You don’t have a girlfriend?
You broke up with your girlfriend?
You don’t have any friends?
You don’t have a job?
Unless you have a terminal disease, there’s always a way out.
It’s Not About How Hard You Hit
Life will repeatedly hit you hard and knock you down.
As Rocky Balboa said “it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”
Even during your worst times, always be in terrific shape.
Things evolve in momentum.
Even when nothing in life is going your way, being fit will help you break the downward spiral.
Dieting is cheap. Bodyweight training is free.
Most people are out of shape. Don’t be “most people”.
If you have extra fat in your body, lose it. Eating less food is cheaper.
You don’t have money to go to the gym? Do bodyweight exercises at home.
I built my six pack abs at home.
Being Fit Will Lift You Up
When nothing seems to go your way in life, you don’t want a fat, weak, unkempt man staring back at you in the mirror.
You want to look good. You want to be strong.
When you look good, you will believe more in yourself. You’ll have confidence. Confident people get ahead in life.
You can’t control the whole world but you can control how you eat and how you train. You can control how you look.
When you are in great shape, you will see the world bending to your will. It’s like magic.
Being fit changes everything.
Never let yourself go.
Always be in great shape.
