"When you slammed the front door shut, a lot of others opened up"
Think about that line for a second, let it sink in. Sounds like it is from a break up song right? That's because it is, what does it have to do with you, the man or women who trains every day. Actually it has everything to do with you. How many times have you found yourself doing the same stuff over and over again?
It represents a total mindset shift and it's exactly what I am doing right now. Why do things have to be done the way they always have been done? It is actually pretty freakin' stupid to even suggest that. Why must everything be set in stone? Why do YOU not do something because you fear what MIGHT happen?
If you want a big back why aren't you doing pull-ups and deadlift?
If you want to train hard, why are you are hitting on everyone around?
If you want a set of hard abs, why are you always eating bread?
If you want wide shoulder, why aren't you doing more side raises?
If you want to get better triceps, why aren't you doing more close grip presses?
It comes down to one thing, do your actions equal your intentions?
That's why there is about .1% of the population that thinks of great things. I'm happy that I'm one of them. Think BIG
I want to share a story with you. Two men were stuck in rapid water, both holding the same rock for dear life. They didn't know what to do, the first man said "I'm not letting go of the rock, I don't know what's down the river so I'll WAIT for someone to come find me". The second man said " No one is coming to find us, we have to take our chances down the river". He told the first man to "let go of the rock". Long story short, the second man let go of the rock and after floating for a little while, he was found by villagers. The first man didn't let go and was taken under by the water.
