Day (140) – In the Zone
Posted on February 7, 2012
I woke up today refreshed and ready to go. Immediately got onto my mat and started doing ab work. I am determined…29 more days to go. Yesterday was a perfect day in terms of diet. So, today, I am going to write about bouncing back from adversity and tearing off all the chains that still might be holding you down. Sometimes you need to sleep on it and everything disappears. It doesn’t disappear because it didn’t happen, it disappears because you have a greater plan then sitting around worrying. I haven’t worried about anything in over a month. I don’t worry about things because I know they will turn out if I train and prepare like a champion. If I give it everything I had, then there is no reason to be nervous or worried. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen.
Don’t waste your time on things that don’t matter. Also, don’t waste your time on things that are not going to take you one step closer to your goals. I saw this great picture the other day that was talking about bodybuilding, and the quote went something along the lines of life is not about luck, because if we are focusing on our goals, every action is merely a step towards the end result. I believe this. I believe that the only reps in life you don’t grow from are the ones you don’t do. I also believe in having class. If things don’t go your way or you are completely blindsided by someone, just leave with pride and class. Men. This is a huge part for us. There are a lot of us out there that have a lack of self control with our temper. If you get dumped, yelled at, or anything, leave with class. I am going to put out an example I use a lot with my friends. Its pretty simple. “You liked her enough to ask her out like a gentlemen, now leave like one.”
You can’t control what other people do. You can only control yourself. So STOP LETTING LIFE HAPPEN TO YOU. Bruce Lee has an amazing speech where he tells you to be like water. Whatever situation you are in, you can adapt like water. Be like water my friend. I am becoming the person I would like to meet on a bench somewhere. I am living my dreams right now in this moment. I have this constant lightheaded feeling because I am realizing my dreams. There are many moments in the day where I go “Wow, this is what it feels like.” I always have to remind myself though, the bigger the game you play, the bigger the problems you are going to have. This is just reality. I have been playing a big game lately, and the problems have started to show up. I am not shying away from these though. I am currently icing my knee because I am working it hard. I know the difference between pain and soreness, and I am still in the good category now. The only problem is that it fills up with fluid after hard workouts. Hopefully I can find a way to attack that problem.
Lists have become increasingly important to me during this time. I write out the problem a the top of the page and make a list of all the potential ways to solve it. When you start getting to option 20 and 21…things get pretty creative. You better believe if I have a major issue in my life that I have some time to think about…there is a list attached to it. Today is a no screw around day. I am clearing house. Taking out the dead wood, bring in new chords of wood that are ready to be set aflame. Watch out, man on a mission today.
