PICK UP YOUR WEIGHTS

Tre heads back to FAU for Fall semester tomorrow. So yesterday when he wanted me to watch a YouTube video of bodybuilding legend and eight-time Mr. Olympia winner, Ronnie Coleman, I didn't ask questions.  While Tre was locked in on Coleman's freakish strength, I was locked in on something he kept repeating. 

Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder,

but nobody wants to lift no heavy-ass weights.”

 

When the video ended I said, “I could play this word game all day.”

 

“Everybody wants to be an entrepreneur but no one wants to take the risk.” 

“Everyone wants to be fit but no one wants to start moving.

“Everyone wants to be an author but nobody wants to write 75,000 words.” 

“Everybody wants to be in love but nobody wants to work on themselves.” 

Here's what's been on my mind in the last 24 hrs.  Breakthroughs happen everyday; but they don't happen by accident.

  • Breakthroughs aren’t miracles. Miracles are gifts and unearned.
  • Breakthroughs aren’t trite. 3 Easy Steps to a Breakthrough isn't real.
  • Breakthroughs ARE proof of concept.  Evidence of your commitment to a thing and the progress that comes with it.
  • Breakthroughs ARE the result of little wins. Wins that only happen because you worked at it and stuck with it over time.

If you're looking for a breakthrough? Go grab your weights.
