HAPPY MONDAY MY WONDERFUL PEOPLE

It’s a brand new week and a new opportunity to get some new things started in our lives. What an amazing opportunity we all have before us. We have the power to steer our lives in the right direction – But what direction do you chose to steer your life in?

If we lack MOTIVATION, we have no chance of moving forward as MOTIVATION is the driving force which keeps us pushing…Would you agree?

Secretly, MOTIVATION is the driving force behind most successful people in our world today…

Research successful people, and you will find that most, if not all of them are driven by:

MOTIVATION + GOALS = SUCCESS

If you want to get in shape but lack MOTIVATION, the chances are pretty “slim” that you’ll ever reach your goal…Would you agree?

This is why staying MOTIVATED is so important in our day to day life if we are to ever reach success.

How many people do you know in 2015 that deem themselves as successful?

You see, we live in a society where people put themselves down and find it hard to love themselves even…

This combined with self doubt and low self esteem leads to a road of misery and we DO NOT have to live like this!

I don’t want to deviate too much y’all, so I will leave it as that today.

But learn to love yourselves people, learn to smile more and keep MOTIVATED

You will find that your life start’s to improve dramatically 🙂

Roll Safe and Let’s Keep Making This Thing Happen

MUCH LOVE

thank you

Hey Guys,

How are we all doing on this fine day. I hope everyone is well and enjoying life the way it’s supposed to be enjoyed 🙂

Today is just a quick thank you to all my followers and viewers for making this site as phenomenal as it is. If I didn’t have followers, I wouldn’t be as motivated to keep the site going. But you guys support me with your e-mails of gratitude, your views and your follows and it really does mean a lot to me – Thank You.

I don’t know what direction this site will go in, but I will continue writing content from the heart as it seems that is what you guys like. I now literally have followers from all over the world and this fills me with joy as I never knew it was possible. I never anticipated how massive this site would actually grow. From a hobby to something I look to form as a life time career.

I’m a normal guy in my 20’s from the UK who started this site to make myself a name in the fitness industry not really knowing what that entailed. Since then I have competed in two bodubuilding shows, helped 1000’s of people to stay motivated, inspired, and on track with different areas of their lives.

I’ve seen that the material I write actually benefits peoples lives and this really does mean a lot to me as I never knew I had the potential to be a writer in any way, shape or form…

I even had a woman from my gym share with me that from reading my website it helped her through her divorce – Thank you for sharing this with me and I hope you are reading this now.

After seeing 1600 people sign up to my site in just 40 days with no promotion from my end, I knew that I had to write a book and continue sharing material with y’all.

I would start my YouTube channel now, but I don’t know if I can be 100% consistent as of yet hence why I’m waiting until 2016 to see how my time table changes.

My Journey Has Been Incredible

My Journey Has Been Incredible

I don’t know when any of you started following my site, but if you started following me in 2013 just before my first bodybuilding show, you will have seen my progression from the chubby boy in the gym to the guy with abs in just over 90 days – It is possible for anyone to sculpt their dream physique, you just gotta want it badly enough…

Setting goals and achieving them is what I’m all about and I love helping you guys to do the same – I’ve been doing it for over 3 years now and look to continue in bigger and better ways 🙂

They say setting goals and achieving them deems you as a successful person – I agree on this one.

We can all be successful and happy – We just have to strive for it knowing that it is possible.

~If you think something isn’t possible, then you’re right. If you KNOW it’s possible, then you are also right. It’s all about how you think and what you believe that defines your reality~

The Wrap Up

Before I go though, I just want to share with you guys a picture of when I first started going to the gym. I feel to share this picture as I speak to so many people that don’t believe it’s possible to get abs or to even sculpt their dream physique and this is both a lie and limiting thought process.

The moment I said, OK, time to change - No more talking!

OK, time to change – No more talking!

I remember I took a trip out to the sunny Islands of Jamaica in 2007 and I was trying to suck in my belly every time a hot girl walked past, but it just wasn’t working – Sad times right 😦 LOL

That’s when I knew it was time for me to do something…

IT WAS TIME FOR ME TO MAKE THAT CHANGE!

Then after years of dedication, consistency, clean eating and smart training, I evolved like a Dragon Ball Z character into this:

Girls can't keep there eye's of me at the beach now ;-)

Girls can’t keep there eye’s of me at the beach now 😉

NOW when I go to holiday, it’s a totally different ball game. The girls are coming at me from left, right and centre (yes I am smiling as I write this hehehe)

I used visualisation techniques and saw what I wanted to look like and I surely got there in the end…

Moral of the story: If I can do it, so can you…

I love you guys

~Stay Strong~

~Stay Positive~

~Keep Focused~

~Learn To Let Go Of The Past~

~Smile Everyday~

And live life like today is your last

LOVE, PEACE & POSITIVE VIBES

Happy Monday Folks 🙂

How are we all doing on this fine Monday?

I see the motivational content is helping you chase your dreams and goals…

This really does fill me with joy and I’m glad I can help where I can.

Thank you for the emails and kind messages – It does mean a lot to me 🙂

My schedule is filling up thick and fast again but I have made a conscious effort to try and do at least ONE post a week. Lord knows I would write for a living but I haven’t found a way to make money from it YET…

I have many ideas and concepts for books I want to write, but I’m just waiting until I have some space on my time table to focus on writing a best seller (Put some good thoughts out there for me please…It cost you nothing 🙂

Anyhoo,

Let’s talk motivation as it seems to ALWAYS be a topic of conversation around me (And around you I’m sure)

Today I will talk about some methods in which you can use to help make that dream come true by staying motivated. I have discussed some of these methods before, but it’s vital that we go over them to ensure we have fully grasp the concept of what is required to utilise them for the great tools that they are.

So without further delay, let’s get stuck in…

5 Tools of Motivation

1) What is your why?

When we get half way through a goal, it’s easy to forget why we even started in the first place. Have you been in this situation before?

It gets to the point where you may sometimes think:
“This has become way to tiresome now, why am I even doing this again?

Sometimes we need that fuel to add to our fire and help us remember our “Why”.

This remembrance will help us to bring fourth that passion which got us started up in the first place. Always focus on your “Why” when you start to loose hope.

2) Visualise/Imagine

Since we were children we have been using our imaginations. Most people imagine the worst as we live in a fear based system but we should use our imaginations for positivity and to better our lives.

Imagine how good you will feel once you have gone through the pain and hustle of reaching your goal/dream.

A woman after 9 months goes through the pain of delivering a baby. However, once she has gone through that pain, she has the beauty and joy of a  new life that has delivered.

The same cane be said for when we are reaching for our dreams. We may (very likely) go through some pain and struggle, be prepared for it. However, once that pain has subsided, we can then look forward to our blessings and new joy in life.

Everything has a gestation period and has to go through a process before it comes to
fruition. Please remember that…

3) Set Way Points

Way point’s help you to track your progress over a period of time. There’s nothing worst than going through 90 days of struggle to reach a point where you feel like you haven’t achieved much because you can’t identify  with “how much you HAVE actually achieved”.

I find that a lot of the time, people have come so far in life from where they once were but choose to focus on where they are at present and complain that they are not where they WANT to be rather than focus on how far they’ve come…

Sound familiar…

Measure your progress and use it as motivation for how WELL you are actually doing…

That’s right…Big yourself up…It’s not ego, it’s claiming and reaping the happiness for what YOU DESERVE!

4) Share, Share, Share – Share with friends and family what you’re up too – There’s nothing more embarrassing than someone asking you 2 months down the line how your project is coming along for you to turn around and tell them:

“Yerrrr, about that….”

LOL

Stick to your word!

5) How will it improve your life?

Life is all about change and improvement – If you’re not moving, creating, expressing and loving what you do, what are you doing?

Usually, in order for us to change our life’s, it involves us having to change a current routine or to try/do something different – Leaving our comfort zones so to speak.

Upon our journey to success though, we will find MANY MANY SET BACKS.

But ask yourself:

How will not giving up improve my life?

If I keep going through the tough, will it be worth it?

By not giving up, can I improve others lives around me?

Sometimes our dreams/goals include others (Our children or spouse maybe)

So even though our focus is on self, we must remember the people around us that are also counting on us as we are very much needed in this life time (more than we may know)

Conclusion

I’m here for you guys and can see the potential in everyone collectively and individually…

Believe in yourself and know that you can make your dreams a reality if you say:

“Enough is enough – It’s my time”

I love you all

11 weeks out. Just had a fantastic session. Chest and Shoulders took a good beating. When I go to the gym tomorrow morning I will work the 3 heads of the shoulder individually to bring out some more detail and separation.

For Chest I mixed it up today and done the following:

Flat Bench Dumbell Flies 3 x 20 reps – 10kg
Incline Smith Machine Press 5 x 15 reps – 30kg
Incline Dumbell Flies 4 x 8-10 reps – Starting from 26kg and going up 2kg each set
Cable Flies – 4 x 15reps – 30kg

For Shoulders I just kept it simple and used the Shoulder press machine (my shoulders are still recovering but I’m just grateful I can train them again)

Tomorrow morning the Back, Delts and abs will get a working. If I got time I will throw in some light cardio.

Now time for some dinner. On the menu today we have some curry chicken with mixed sea food, broccoli and avocado. I would have some coriander leaves but I can’t find them…I know, random.

Keep pushing and you to can reach your goals. Break them down into chunks and take everyday as it comes.

Much love to you all
