Reflecting on my most recent contest, St. Louis Pro, where I earned my first win of my professional career, I feel more motivated than ever. I find myself waking up excited every day as I prepare for the 2017 Olympia. This feeling has me reflecting on the effects that this "feeling" can have on us as a whole, and how it contributes to our overall success... In light of the fact that I know many individuals find themselves constantly trying to justify their hobbies to themselves and the people around them, I want to offer a perspective that I truly believe in my heart justifies our DREAMS and GOALS... First of all, regardless of how successful a person is in this sport (or any sport), we can all agree that giving ourselves something to look forward to can be life-changing. The bottom line is that when we are working toward a goal, it requires us to learn things about ourselves that we may or may not want to. In some cases, an individual is forced to learn that they are afraid or lack desire to put in effort; and in other cases, an individual may surprise him/herself with the amount of raw "grit" they contain. Either way, we are learning and growing with each passing day, and with the ups and downs all piled into one, there is always something for us to look forward to.
SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO... At the end of the day, THIS is the ticket to our success and happiness. Not the "thing" that we are participating in; rather, the feeling of excitement and motivation that it gives us when we hop out of bed. This translates to ALL aspects of our life. We work a little harder in our job, with our family, with everything! We take more risks, we believe in ourselves more... The list goes on and on.
Once we find our PASSION, we find our SUCCESS! And if PASSION doesn't die, then SUCCESS NEVER WILL🙏
