At age 25 I was going through a hellish time in life. I had a bad case of "God complex" and left a job (voluntarily) which I loved and was very successful at with hopes of making a difference at a new position.
Guess I thought I could save the world, which, for teachers, is the way you MUST think if you wanna do a GREAT job and it pushes you to think outside the box and bring better and better things to the students. But, trying to save the world wasn't my job, and I learned the hard way.
I was stressed beyond belief yet somehow juggled my training, full time job, coaching wrestling, training and competing in BJJ and to cap it all off I tore my ACL and cried in the middle of a class during Grad School.
Yep, that SUCKED. Life at 25.
That was 10 years ago yet it seems more like 10 minutes ago. Funny how pain and suffering are things we NEVER forget. Pain and suffering also motivates me to NEVER go back to that feeling or that place whether it be holding down a horrible job or losing wrestling matches. This is when I learned about lifestyle design..... the hard way.
I thought it would be interesting, motivating, inspirational and educational ALL at once to interview a 25 year old who has crafted a life according to his rules as well as being a Damn STRONG dude.
Regardless of your age, we can ALL learn something from this 25 year old stud who crafted a pretty kick ass life for himself and can Bench Press 225 for 20 + reps and only weighs 185 lbs.
Pretty darn cool. Grab some coffee or whip up a protein shake, here's 22 minutes of Nate Green, enjoy 🙂
I have learned how to go after life the same way I learned to go after strength. It's a constant evolution, you're always finding new ways to get stronger, bigger and faster.
Same in life.... you're always trying to climb your personal Mount Everest. Time goes fast. Life is too short to be weak or stick with a job that makes you miserable.
Make it happen!
