#TransformationTuesday One decision, bad or good does not make you something. You are what you do and become daily. All I did was lose 1 pound 228 times. How many times can you do it? (at Gold’s Gym Fullerton)

#Truth. I love this from @austinkleon.

If I want something I will definitely achieve it, no matter what I have to sacrifice…the more complex the situation, the more threatening my rivals, the more I spread my wings in defiance of everything.

There are two categories of performers in my sport: first, those who view competitions as tortures and second, those who see competitions as great celebrations. I am in the middle of those two.

In Shakespeare’s time it was said, “What must be cannot be avoided”. That is how it is when I lift. To successfully lift the weight cannot be avoided. I experienced the tortures and the celebration. But I lift as well as I lift because it cannot be avoided.
