Here I am, the day after an emotional fundraiser for The Navy SEAL Foundation.
After the fundraiser ended I was hit with a TON of emotion. Sharing the reason WHY I support Military so much and my memory of 9-11 and my gratitude for my families safety, it chokes me Up BIG time.
I woke up and my mind is racing. Again. Perhaps it's age. Perhaps it is regret. Perhaps the only thing I can do about it is to keep on keeping on.
The best way to calm the mind is to push some hard iron and attack calisthenics. It works for me.
Will it work for you?
You'll have to find out for yourself.
Choose the couch or choose the iron. I choose to BE iron.
As I write and stare for a few moments at a mostly blank screen my mind wrestles over 2 options:
- Write from the heart and attract the rare few
- Write in a way that follows the "rules" and attracts the "common man"
I choose to write this blog post from the heart, which a blend of intensity and passion.
F--K the common man. I write for the Uncommon Man.
I write for those who dare greatness.
I understand that my writings often offends many and attracts the few.
There is the "business" battle of just saying it like it is, which is what I do best, or, making sure my message gets to the masses with a proper blog post title and SEO.
That's ALL bull shit but I understand how many think.
Like I ALWAYS say, give me a Barbell and I will build a BadAss. If you can understand this point then you will get what I am sharing.
F--k it, I say.
Let the right people find me.
I am not into working with the masses.
The masses do not show up for fundraisers for The Navy SEAL Foundation, only those who are hard charging men and women. Those who STAND for what they believe in vs Following others.
The "others" say things like this:
- "That's too early.."
- "I can't do that..."
F--K the others.
I have zero time for that.
My friend told me that most people will NEVER understand my passion. He is right. I will have to accept that as the truth.
Let's get on with it, shall we.
Here's what this blog post is ALL about:
- OWN Your Training.
