Its not uncommon every now and again that i get asked how i do it. How everyday no matter what my schedule is like, day in day out.. i'm here... to be honest i dont know why i do it.. i started this whole quest to become everything i wasn't years ago.. ninth grade to be exact.. was it because of a girl i was crushin on, or someone i wanted to become or admired on the television, was it because i wanted to prove something to myself or someone else.. see how far i can take myself?.. over the years all the reasons i do this got jumbled up, all i know.. now its in me, a part of me.. somewhere buried deep under my skin, like ink from a tattoo.. I laugh when people ask me whats going to happen 30 years from now when i stop training... ha, its the same as any tattoo, in 30 years the ink may fade a bit... but it will always be there, visible to the naked eye.. until im dead....

Thats deep stuff yo. I know a lot of people start working out/taking care of their body so that other people will like them (girls... etc). I used to be one of these people when I was younger but then when you mature you come to realize that you are improvig yourself as a person, you are transforming not only your body, but yourself as a whole. Taking care of your body and having good health should never be done for anyone but yourself. A lot of people get more attention when they lose weight (or gain it if you're a twig) and they say "oh well I'm more attractive to people now" no... its because you have more confidence, its because you transformed yourself. Having this mentality is the best motivation that anyone can have... way better than trying to get someone to like you.

I think this deserves it's own thread. Dead on.

Good words. It's funny how much I see I have in common with the guys in here. I love this forum.

Alot of us started out to get attention from the girls, then it becomes a part of us- it defines us.

Just being in here has helped me ALOT this week in the gym- you guys have no idea.

Agreed.

Its amazing how much carry over training has into our everyday lives. When i told my friends that i have learnt some very important lessons about life under the bar they looked at me funny and said 'like what?!?'.

Here is some of them.

- We often have to do things that we are scared to do or dont want to do.
- We often have to do things which are hard and make you feel uncomfortable to do them.
- Progress in life comes in small steps and we must persist with those small steps to reach our goals.
- Sometimes we need to take a few steps back to continue going forward.

There is also other ones as well like what Ronnie says -If you always do what you always did you will always get what you always got.

I have also learnt alot about the human body and the way that we respond to change. The carry over to everyday life is that if something bad happens to you like your partner leaves you or you lose a family member you must remember that the feelings are new and will hurt. But that hurt is only temporary and we must learn that it is important to continue to try move forward even if we need to take some timeout to recover from those feelings.

Thats just some of them.
