The physical battle of transforming your body is only part of the transformation. If you do things right, more than your biceps will grow!
Winners Don’t Stop Until They Succeed!
When you start your transformation don’t expect things to happen over night, be realistic! It’s taken you an entire life time to get the body you have right now. Don’t expect to change it in a couple of weeks. We once heard a great simile about the body being like the potter’s clay… Before the potter can sculpt the clay, the clay must be worked through the potter’s hands and warmed up, it takes time. The unfortunate thing is a lot of people go to the gym in January for a couple of weeks and don’t see any changes and think “Fu*k it, I quit” right when the clay is starting to warm up and the sculpting is going to start! Be patient, it may not happen as quickly as you want it to happen but if you refuse to give up it WILL happen!
Be a Victor Not a Victim!
Accept responsibility for your life, take back control and realise that your body is the most valuable thing you will ever own! Of course it is easier to blame someone else or something else for not having what you want. However, that gives away your power and control! When are you going to stop making excuses and take control of your life? You are the captain of your ship, if you don’t like the way it is going take hold of the wheel and change direction!
Realise You’ve Got To Be Hungry For Success!
If you are going to go to the gym and just go through the motions what do you expect to achieve? Muhammad Ali was once asked, how many sit ups do you do? He replied “I don’t know I don’t start to count until it hurts.” That is the attitude of a champion! Far too often people feel a little bit of pain and they stop. Why? Push yourself, find your limits and then redefine them! It is in the final reps and steps where your character is forged and the transformation takes place! Stay hungry and stay focused.
