Find your Journey

The Word

Find Your Passion

We often find ourselves wondering about our daily lives—we know that our lives are meant for a greater purpose, but what is our calling? How do we know what our life is meant for? It’s easy to know what your passions are. We all have a passion for something in life. What’s the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning? What’s the last thing you think about going to bed? What do you constantly think about during the day when nothing else is going on? I can’t stop thinking about being the best bodybuilder I can be and making the greatest positive impact on people’s lives.

Lessons Learned over the Past Year

With 2018 ending, I like to reflect back on some major things I learned related to bodybuilding. I learned a lot in general outside of bodybuilding, but I am going to focus on what is probably more important to you—your physique. I am not one that dwells in the past, but I do like to reflect on where I came from and what I have learned. Most of what we learn in our lifetime is forgotten, so it is nice to write down a few things to make sure I carry them into the next year.

Setting Goals for Your Dream

If you want the best life you can live, it is time to set some goals. Ask any high achiever and they all will tell you the importance of setting goals. Goals give you focus. Goals can give clarity to daily tasks that need to be completed in order to accomplish your dream. Goals can be set for all areas of your life: fitness, relationships, career, or even for vacations. I’ve had many times when I was stuck and asked myself what I should be doing to achieve my goals. I wasn’t even sure why I was doing anything anymore. It is in these moments that I have to sit down and evaluate what I want my future to look like. Those are my goals and then I can work backward to find the daily tasks needed to accomplish them.

Change Your Mind, Change Your Body

We often get into a routine of going to the gym as if we’re just checking it off of our to-do list. For the serious lifters, every day is a great day to get better. There is no checking off going to the gym. We look forward to it. Those who aren’t so serious may find a reason to take it easy or skip the gym altogether. It’s during these moments that your mental toughness will be challenged.
