Nothing = 2020

Consistency is troublesome for many people.
 
The idea of having to repeat something again and again and agin just doesn’t take well.
 
Given we’re two days away from reigning in a new year it’ll be time for all the –
 
“2018 broke me, 2019 taught me, 2020, let’s do this!”
 
😂😂😂
 
Such heroic nonsense.
 
In the words of Conner McGregor – “You’ll do nothin”
 
If it take the 1st of January for you to pull your finger out I’m not afraid to say that my friend you’ve all ready failed.
 
You see if you see a reason to become better and change your life, well you’d find it.
 
Regardless of that reason you’d find it because you want to.
 
So many need things to start on a Monday, the 1st of a month, after and event or whatever, it’s just not worth it, given how many millions fail what makes you think you’ll be any different?
 
True many other millions succeed, yet no one ever asks them about what made the succeeded, they merely admire from afar or write in envy.
 
Question for you, why will you be consistent this time around?
 
What makes 2020 so different from 2000, or 2010, or any other time you’ve talked a good game and not delivered on it because as much as seeing people do well is truly heart warming, there is so much hot air and bluster it’s just too tiresome to even pretend to care enough to support people these days.
 
I’m sure some will read the above and proclaim that people like me are the reason others fail, because obviously we have that much sway over the minds of the many.
 
In my experience change happens for these two reason:
 
– People become too uncomfortable to take anymore
– Heartbreak
 
Rarely do people change for positive reasons.
 
Sad as it is, many don’t change because they’re comfortable or happy, they do it because life has finally become too shit for them to stay in the place they’re in and it’s no longer giving them even and ounce of what they want anymore.
 
So my dear 6 readers, if I even have 6 😂
 
Why will 2020 be any different from all the year before it?
 
Please do leave your thoughts and motivations below.
 
Enjoy,

Expectations vs Reality

Do you know what is actually achievable from training?
 
In our modern odd world it’s easy to have the lines blurred.
 
Growing up with classic 80’s, early 90’s cartoons and action stars such as Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Lindgren, Van-damme, Lee, plus a boat load of other physical specimens it’s easy to see why the world has some distorted views.
 
I shared a book with a close friend recently.
 
This book was apparently quite eye opening to him.
 
Of course over the years I had tried to convey many of the messages found in said book yet they all fell on deaf ears.
 
The combination of body dysmorphia, unrealistic expectations and wrapped social media/movie/anime images had set quite the distorted image of what was real and what wasn’t.
 
The book is ‘Your Muscular Potential’ by Dr Casey Butt.
 
A very good read for those looking to lift the veil, you’ll potentially enjoy his website too as it contains all the calculators mentioned in his book:
 
 
Believe it or not you might be near your maximum muscular potential, that is if you’re of a decent level of leanness.
 
Filling out a t-shirt is easy when your fat so if size if your prize you might do well to ask yourself this; is it legitimate lean mass and size I’m after or just being big due to being fat?
 
^^ Food for thought.
 
Beware of what you follow in the world wide web.
 
You might be being lead astray.
 
Once you learn what is realistic and what isn’t (without ‘enhancement’) you’ll find quite the weighty stress removed from your shoulders.
 
Enjoy,
Ross
