Big Man Strong Rules to The Game #3 – The Lifestyle
What’s up playa
Over the past few days I’ve been shooting you messages talking about the Big Man Strong rules to the game
Before I share my third and final installment in the series I wanna shoot you a brief disclaimer
These rules are my own personal guidelines which have helped me become a better athlete, coach and human-being
Yours might be completely different… and that’s cool
As long as you have something which guides you towards your end goal… that’s all matters.
With that said, lemme drop this last Rules to The Game, this one is all about cultivating a Big Man Strong lifestyle…
Hopefully it’ll inspire you to move towards your goals and become your own reflection of a the biggest, strongest you
Rule #1: Live life on your own terms
Over my past 10 years as a trainer I’ve interacted with hundreds of clients. Most of em are regular people like me and you,
They’ve got hopes, dreams and aspirations…
But for some odd reason so few act on them
I don’t know whether these people fail to realize despite life’s hardships the only true salvation lays in pursuing your dreams
It’s what connects us to our human spirit and without it we might as well be dead.
I’ve told you before what it was like for me growing up.
I was a fat kid and for years people tormented me about my weight
In my grade 10 year of high school all of that changed. A series of incidents led me to make the critical decision to get my weight handled once and for good.
For an entire year I came home after school and rode my moms crusty, old exercise bike for at least an hour every… single… day
I was determined to change the course of my life and I wasn’t gonna let anything stop me
If you have anything you’d like to accomplish before your days on this planet are done..
I’m gonna urge you to take the same dogged approach
I guarantee the last thing you’re gonna wanna wish the day you lay on deathbed is…
“I should have pursued my goals”
This is YOUR life playa…. live it on your terms
Rule #2: Fuck the Haters
The last Big Man Strong rule I’m gonna share with you relates to the voices of so-called reason (aka the hater’s)
Anytime you make a decision to change your life for the better, people are gonna come out of the wood-works and try to convince you otherwise
Sometimes these people are well meaning, they are trying to protect you from falling on your face.
Other times these people are jealous haters who can’t stand to see you pursue your dreams
It serves as a reminder that they lack the courage to act on their own dreams
Regardless which camp your detractors fall into, you’ve gotta learn to say fuck em and keep moving forward
Change is uncomfortable, the road towards your goals will be bumpy and shitty at times but you’ve gotta soldier on
It’s the only way you will reach your true potential and in turn inspire others to do the same
So there you have it… The Big Man Strong Rules To The Game
Like I said before, these are the rules I’ve followed which have helped me reach a few of my long term desires and goals.
Choose the ones which make sense to you or create your own- it doesn’t really matter
All that matters is that you keep striving to becoming your own best version, your own Big Man Strong
