Good News

Good News...

Some of you know I began doing personal training on the side awhile back. I am pleased to announce a young man who put his trust in me from the beginning placed first in novice and second overall in mens physique. It was his very first competition! I was sky high and he was so humble. You would not have believed how congratulatory he was to the gentleman who took first overall. The guy deserved to win... his core was popping.

I am not taking the credit because this kid works HARD.

Either that or they trained their members well. ;) +3 for our moderators.

Way of subject but I was just

Way off subject but I was just reading tonight in my insomnia and here are the things that stuck out-

“The secret of getting successful work out of your trained men lies in one nutshell—in the clearness of the instructions they receive.” 

“Do not press a desperate enemy.”

“If rewards are immoderate, there will be expenditure that does not result in gratitude; if punishments are immoderate, there will be slaughter that does not result in awe.” 

- Sun Tzu

"Happiness isn't in pursuing novelty—it's in sticking to commitments and being able to focus on one thing." - Proverbs

 “Live in such a way that even if given another opportunity to live your life all over again, you would still choose to live it exactly the same way that you are living your life now.” ― William B. GiraoEnjoy Life: The Message of Ecclesiastes

Thanks to everyone for the

Thanks to everyone for the positive support. I try to be a very humble person but in this case my pride swelleth (old english?) and I could not be more proud the work that this kid is willing to put in to be the best at what he does. I would like to mention that he is 100% natural and we received a lot of help in prep and posing from my friend who is a IFBB pro. He deserves a shout out as well because he donated his time. Its incredible the brotherhood that this sport has. Although there is a competitiveness and a lot of arrogance the majority of the athletes are more than willing to help where help is needed and wanted.

Its great to be humble but

Its great to be humble but when you reach certain achievements its time to gloat... For me, Its actually better to see someone I've helped succeed over my own achievements. I am proud to be your friend, You are the most solid man I have never met... But I will...…….

I like Metals response... The young man is lucky to have you in his corner... OK, Back to work...

Blast, I guarantee there will

Blast, I guarantee there will be a time in your life when you wish you could get up and go to work. You will wish people needed you like they need you now.  I love to learn from sane older men. Almost every one of them says:  I wish I was needed more, im bored out of my mind...  Work and production is awesome... Nothing Beats working...

I know you know this. You work, workout, Take care of your daughter, spend time here as a mod.

Victory!!!

That’s so great to hear, SF. Such a great achievement. And I totally agree with strong... there are moments when it’s time to raise your head and accept other people’s praise and validation. It‘s very much within my character to humble, even self-deprecating at times... I find that it’s even more challenging to accept a pat on the back. So pat yourself on the back, brother! You fuckin’ did something phenomenal, and you did it for the success of another! You are the fucking man.

That video was filmed at the clubhouse in good ol Dallas TX. Owned by Vinnie Paul from Pantera. I’ve been to that motherfucker I can’t count how many times. The Black light shower show with glow in the dark paint is a showstopper. good fuckin memories. it’s a free for all, but if you even begin to get too drunk and fuck with the girls, you’re done for..

+2 to Strong for an earlier

+2 to Strong for an earlier comment.

I love someone else supporting work! I love work!  I was raised in a "cat's in the cradle..." generation that said 'no one ever said on their death bed that they wish they had worked more"   I have always said bull crap to that. Work is awesome. Production rules. Find your calling and fulfil that - kids are great. Make time for them but if they see themselves as all that matter, well those kids often turn into lousy adults. 

Not to mention success is fun and spending money is real fun.
