Today’s progress on my sleeve.

Bootlegger / Prohibition era when men were men, dressed in 3 piece gangster suits and believed that violence sometimes solved violence.

Work done by the talented @thurstontattoo. 🔥🔥

MONDAY MORNING MINDSET:
.
Many people fear "change." They get comfortable, complacent and believe there is nothing better out there, even though they are unhappy. I lived this way for a long time myself.
.
As a mentally dsciplined individual, I stayed loyal to things that needed to end. My first marriage. My last career. Certain friendships and business relationships.
.
Now, I roll with the change and believe better is around the corner. Optimistic. Change is hard. It requires hard work, time, discomfort, hell, even pain, but the result is always worth it, along with the life lesson learned.
.
I don't fear taking a step back because I know nothing can stop me if I apply hard work and dedication. You can take anything away from me and I will rebuild.
.
All eras end. I truly believe that. It's the life cycle of everything. There is honor in seeing things through, but also learn to recognize when it's over.
.
What's stopping you from living the life you truly want to be living? It's probably you. Don't hold yourself back from happiness because of "a comfortable routine."

If any of your orders arrive with hand written thank you cards containing smiley faces, doodles, slobber, drool, boogers or cheesy finger marks, you’ll know why.
.
There is opportunity EVERYWHERE to stand out, rise above and do shit better than anyone else is willing to do it.
.
Success isn’t always sexy or glamorous. Never be too proud or important to do shit others delegate.
.
Fuck the boss mentality. That’s for peckerwoods with egos. BE A LEADER.

OUR NEXT LIVE EVENT.
.
NPC PALMETTO CLASSIC.
.
Saturday, April 28. Columbia SC.

I was talking shop with a entrepreneur cohort the other day who is killing shit in the self made game.
.
We got to talking about this prevailing trend of people only going partly in on all their worldly endeavors in life.
.
Seems like a lot aren’t willing to go all in, not willing to invest pure fucking intensity, drive, commitment or hours until they get a feel if there will be a return on their investment.
.
If they do, then they’ll put in the time......say what??
.
So let me get this straight....if they get a reward for being lazy and half-assed in, then all of a sudden they are going to find their work ethic....???
.
Yeah, I get it. What if you put in all the hours and you don’t succeed?
.
That’s a twisted perspective.....
.
How about this...
.
If you don’t go all in, you don’t stand a fucking chance of ever being anything but mediocre and average.
.
The work always comes before the belief; yet they want to feel the belief before the work?
.
It’s like this....stand up and be counted or sit in the corner and fucking color.
.
Middle ground ain’t worth shit these days....

In a world where most businesses strive to be automated, hands off and heavily outsourced.....
.
WE ARE PROUD AS HELL TO BE “MOM AND POP.”
.
We are 💯 hands on. Start to finish.
.
Be different or forever blend in with the masses.
.
NEW SHIT DROPS TONIGHT. 8 PM.
.
Anything not sold out will be available this Saturday at the Charlotte Cup NPC Event.
.
From the bottom of our hearts, my wife and I humbly thank you. We run this biz out of my home; passionate, driven and forever grateful to you all for allowing us to live this life, building GRIND ATHLETICS.

I always keep my eyes on the quiet ones.
.
You know the ones I am talking about....hood up, avoiding all eye contact, conversations and human engagement.
.
They can usually be found doing the basics, over and over again, working the plan and planning the work.
.
Why? Less talk about what they are “going to do.” Too busy actually paying dues and doing shit. Truth.
.
When it’s time to go to work, they get working....

“WORK.”
.
“That’s how you get it.”
-Gary V.
