    Cool Its March, Get Your Ass Motivated

    "The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens."

    - Arnold Schwarzenegger


    By trying hard we often achieve more than we dare hope. You can't push yourself forward by patting yourself on the back, waiting to do something isn't enough, you must do it. You can never achieve great success without great exertion. Have the courage to accept what you can't alter and to alter what you can't accept. Thoughts are mere dreams until you put them into practice. If you waste today crying over yesterday, you'll be able to waste tomorrow crying over today

    "If","perhaps" and "but" never got any one person anywhere!

    The most important day of your life is today!

    Every single one of us has an excuse on why we don't lift as hard, why we don't eat as much, why we don't go full out till we puke in the gym. Don't lie you know you have one. In my opinion your success is not determined by the scale or the mirror, but by what adversity did you have to overcome to achieve what you have thus far.

    In 2011 my wife's cancer took an aggressive turn, A tumor was discovered on accident in her brain. My parents got divorced, I had to admit my mother to a mental ward for months while covering her bills and work. My brother is a drug addict, that I constantly am rescuing. I have 3 kids, a sick wife, 7 dogs, bills and one income ( mine ) We had multiple very close deaths in the family, one in particular was my wife's grandmother, I carried her Body out of the hospital bed in our home to the gurney waiting for her in the living room. A great friend of mine was killed in Afghanistan. Yet through all the limitations, time constraints, doctors appointments, and grief. I am still overcoming every adversity in my life, and crushing the iron day by day in the gym. I WILL get my PRO CARD this year.

    Now you know my story, What was your excuse again?

    I will repeat this one last time

    " In my opinion your success is not determined by the scale or the mirror, but by what adversity did you have to overcome to achieve what you have thus far. "

    - OSL

    Good post. You've had a lot happen. As you said, it's a persons determination that separates them from the rest.
