I woke up early this morning to go to the gym with my buddy for dead lifts.
I went into the room to wake up my son so that he could go to football camp.
I don’t care how F-#$%ing sore you are – if you signed up for a camp your going to finish it.
When I sign up for a bike race – I finish that race even if I have to carry the bike.
Well…. my son did finally get up and go and he is out there on the field now warming up.
Do you find yourself in that situation?
Where you sign up for something and find a way to make excuses and not finish out?
Why do you think that you quit?
Your word is everything. If you say you are going to do something then make sure you finish it. In todays society too many people don’t go by their words. That is not the warrior way.
If a warrior tells you he will do something, He or she will make sure it gets done and covers your back.
Suffer in Silence. No one wants to hear you being a little bitch. When you cry and moan like a baby you infect the others in your team. A warrior sucks up the pain and realizes that it is all a gift.
Realize that everything is a test and that the gods are looking down on your watching your performance.
You must struggle to move on to the next level. Just like the ugly butterfly in the cocoon – it must fight to get out of the cocoon. If you slit the cocoon with a razor blade to let the butterfly out – it will fall to the ground and die.
Struggle is a part of nature and must be embraced.
What protein powder do you recommend to help me?
Answer: Good question, Jim. I currently use Ascent protein powder after every hard workout at the gym and long off road bike races.
I mix it up with a glass of milk and add a few ice cubes and shake it up.
It gives me all the extra protein I need to recover and also it taste really good.
ANSWER: I use Athletic Greens in our shakes. It’s got tons of great nutrition—vitamins and minerals. Plus it mixes up easy in milk or water.
