Every time you step on stage you have to ask yourself- am I better than I was before? NOT am I PERFECT. Because the answer is always going to be "No. You are not..." because perfection is subjective. And in this bodybuilding world, we don't aim to be perfect, we aim to be progressive. We aim to grow (both mentally and physically). Every prep is different. Every prep comes with it's struggles. It's unavoidable. EVERYONE GOES THROUGH SOMETHING! But when you step out there you better own it to the best of your freaking ability. You better be proud that you are one more step closer to your idea of perfection. Be as perfect as you can possible be IN THIS SEASON of your life.
Before stepping on stage for the night Show a girl came up to me. Looked me dead in my face, and goes, "what's wrong with you?! I know you've been sick but I've seen you on stage before and you kill it. What's holding you back now?" So as I stumbled through what I saw as reasons, she knew it was nothing more than a list of excuses.... once you are up there you have to put all that shit that HAPPENED in the past to the side and focus on making things HAPPEN right now. She brought it to my attention that "you are standing in your own way. Bring it! It's not over yet." Though I had a fever, was dehydrated, head pounding, nauseous, and just mentally broken because I wasn't my best. Her words are probably the most influential portion of the entire day. My night show was probably better than my day show as a result of her directness. If anything. It was better than it was going to be because I was desperately looking for something-anything- to get my ass together again. So thank you Sunni Rochell Ewing for bringing me back to the NOW. ----
I like taking a step back and comparing me to me. Because at the end of the day- YOU can't make me better. Only I can. I'm happy to see progress but even more ecstatic to see where I can improve. (My thank yous are coming---- I promise lol)
