Here the thing about life, about the life we live. There are some lessons you will have to learn sooner or later. Its part of the journey. Here are some that you should have learnt by now. If you havent... get cracking...
Pain hurts, but it is necessary for growth.
If you do this right, you will be lonely.
If you do this right, you will find a discipline you never thought you had.
You will fear failure, be it a failed meal, a failed lift, not winning a show, missing a goal, it will haunt you.
You will understand the value of holding on to that Delong of disappointment and failure.... You will realize that it is you're greatest motivater.
People tell you to let go of the past, set free you're pain, you will learn that this is bull****, hold on to pain, pain will teach you.
Trust is a funny word, out there people throw it around like a ****ing frisbee to a dog. You learn that you can only trust what has been tried.
You are stronger mentally and physically then you can possibly imagine.
You will undergo a change in you're entire being, you will shed the skin of mortals and don the armor of gods.
You will run through a brick wall if it would bring you an inch closer to the truth. Truth about what you have become. A warrior, a gladiator an animal.
Things that was once important to you will cease to exsist. Toilet paper will become a luxury if it stands in the way of keeping you're supplement counter full.
Walking past any reflective surface without catching a glimpse of yourself will become impossible, this is NOT vanity, this is being critical over what you have gained and what you still lack.
You will be called obsessed, vain, stupid, inconsiderate, dysmorphic, freak.... Grow some ****ing balls and get use to it. If this hurts feelings, great, see point point 1 through 6. If you still feel hurt, then this life is not for you and we don't want you here.
You will smell, sweat, have gas and grunt. Its not nice, but it is what it is. Hardcore training means hardcore emissions. Deal with it.
You will realize that each session is life or death. Each missed meal and missed workout is worse than death. In death at least you have an excuse to miss you're goals, while you are breathing, you have not.
Excuses are for the weak. We are not weak. We are lions... And let not no man forget how menacing we are.
You will have bad eating days and bad workouts.
You will miss meals and you will miss workouts. As the Phoenix, we can rise from the ashes of that death and be stronger.
As a warrior you will understand that death smiles at all of us, all a warrior can do is smile back.
