Deadlifts, Rocky & Navy SEAL Inspiration



-- Strength Today VS Strength of Yesterday --

When I was a teenager, strength was measured in numbers.

Numbers on the bar.

That's all.

Then, when I reached my 20s, I began viewing strength differently.

I attached strength to more than just the numbers I was lifting.

I measured my strength in pain tolerance, in making training partners quit and in going that extra step just when I thought I should stop.

Fast forward to my late 20s and current age, as a family man, my strength is measured and inspired by how it applies to every area of my life.

TRUE strength will always transcend the gym walls.

True strength gives me the ability to wake up at 5 AM while everyone else is sleeping.

TRUE strength gives me the ability to get the job done in the gym, in my business, with my family and anywhere else because I have learned through the gym that TRUE Strength does NOT quit. EVER.

The common excuses of "I'm so tired", "I've had a long day".....

It's all pity party excuses.

Instead of finding excuses, I choose to find inspiration.

As soon as you Find Your WHY, you will find your Way.

    Z, I just wanted to get the word out: Tim Ferriss interviewed Jocko Willinik on his Podcast, it was an absolutely amazing, humbling & inspiring look into Jocko’s life and his experiences as a SEAL. Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for all of the guys and gals who are out there standing up and protecting what we have here in this country. It is impossible for me to wake up and complain about things in my life knowing the kind of trials and tribulations the people on the front lines are dealing with……
