A Thousand Mile Journey
Posted on April 6, 2012
How much will you sacrifice today…for the betterment of tomorrow?
My 40 day journey begins, right now. I just ate my last cheat meal. I have everything that I need to have vitamins and supplements wise. My lifting plans are up on the board. My mind is right. Today I wanted to talk about sacrifice because that really is what this journey is all about. It is about giving up everything that I absolutely love eating, for a lifestyle change that will last me a lifetime. In 40 days, I will have reached the greatest potential I have ever even imagined. I will have taken my mind and my body to levels previously unattained, and I know in my heart I will be better off because of it. Why am I doing this?
While the physique will be awesome, it has nothing to do with that. It has everything to do with the fact that I want to put my mind to something against major challenges…and succeed. There will be many instances along the way where I will be battered, sore, unmotivated, and unwilling to keep going. But like in any game, you can’t win if you don’t play. 40 days. 40 days from now I will put another picture up on this page of me at bay to breakers (an awesome run event in San Francisco). I will have a huge smile on my face, and I will have achieved something great.
Remember, every single step you take today, will have an impact on how you walk in the future.
Wake up, and say, ‘I am going to be a champion.’
