No Secret

August 27, 2012


Nope. There is no secret. If you want it... there is is... go get it. 

God I wish there was a way that I could bottle this message up and feed it directly to some people. Even give myself (a little over a year ago) a healthy dose of it... But than again... that would in turn mean that there is a "secret" to success. When in fact what is stated above is perfectly true. Hard work, dedication, motivation and even some sacrifice is necessary to succeed

This message is so important... from graduating from high school/college all the way to losing weight and eating right. There is NO easy way. There is no magic pill. There is no one who can do your work for you. To succeed you have to use your mind, your body, your talents and your abilities. I think that until you are ready to accept that, you will always be holding yourself back a bit. 

Its amazing how much inspiration is lofted into the air at a CF Gym. Its just waiting for someone to come along and soak it all in. If there is ONE thing I could say was a "tool" to help your mind and body it would be just that. Seeing someone who really wants what they are striving for... seeing someone who wont quit till they get it... seeing someone who you know works hard, who knows that there is "no secret," who has laid everything out on the line reach a goal. There is nothing like it. You can feed off that feeling and strive for it within yourself. 

It dosent have to be a "big" goal and it dosent have to be a veteran CF Athlete, it may be seeing someone doing a box jump to a 20" box for an entire workout never having done it before, it may be someone kicking up to a handstand for the first time, connecting 10 kipping pullups or setting a new 1RM clean and Jerk... even someone just walking in the door and fully committing themselves to making a healthy change in their lives. That is what inspires me. Thats what keeps me going and thats what keeps me writing.

My friends, my family.... people I dont even know... you are my inspiration. I know I can do it. I know I can be anything I want to be.
