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

The-will-to-win-the-desire-to-succeed-the-urge-to-reach-your-full-potential...-these-are-the-keys-that-will-unlock-the-door-to-personal-excellence.

Hello my wonderful people,

How are we all doing on this beautiful day. I hope everyone is doing well and making stuff happen. I wanted to do a Motivation Monday today, but I promised to do a QOTW and felt in the mood to write one. I’ve found quotes to be rather useful to help us get through our day to day grind. They work as powerful mood up lifters when we can sometimes be feeling down. I find myself reading quotes a few times a day and meditating on the messages that they bring.

Today I wanted to share a quote with you that resonates with me on all levels. So without further ado, I bring to you today’s quote of the week:

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

Now, as humans, we all have what it takes to make our dreams a reality – EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US!

But we have been faced with many limitations since birth. Limitations can come in many different forms:

  1. Our Thought Process On Life
  2. The Self Image We Hold For Ourselves
  3. Statements which don’t hold true i.e – “We Can’t, It’s Not Possible,You Don’t have what it takes, It’s Going To Take To Long” and things around that nature

So before we venture on our journey to success, we first have to believe in ourselves 100% of the time. Using affirmations can help greatly:

Affirmations

daily-affirmations

Use the affirmations above and affirmations such as:

I Am Powerful

I Am Strong

I have 100% Confidence

Affirmations used daily can help you to stay focused, on track with goals and can help to bring about personal awareness (tuning into your deeper self) You can even do a Google search on affirmations and the results page will bring back loads of goodies that you can print out and carry around with you (or stick on your walls around your house)

Now, let me ask you individually through the screen…

Do you have the will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential?

Whatever it is that you want from life, you have to want it badly enough to go and get it – Because believe me, it’s not going to get up and just come strolling along to you.

You see, we all have what it takes to be winners – But are you putting in the work to be a winner?

Do you have the desire to succeed? A lot of people say they want success, but if they really wanted it they would go out and chase it. Some of you like the idea of success but don’t believe it can be ascertained, so you just dream about it all day long and live in fantasy land…

This all changes today!

Today is the day that you start unlocking your full potential. And I’m happy that I can help you to do so. But trust me on this one, you have to be willing to put in the ground work first.

Adopting a winners mind set doesn’t just happen over night. It takes at least 33 consecutive days before your subconscious mind adjust to the re-programming.

Unlocking Your Full Potential

your-full-potential

OK, before we move on – Let me ask you another question:

What does it even mean for  you to unlock your full potential?

The beauty of life is that we are all individuals and will all inevitably answer that question differently.

To me, unlocking my full potential meant a number of things:

  1. Writing – A few years ago I never knew that I was good at writing until I created this website and found I had natural writing abilities. Unlocking my potential within the realms of writing meant for me that I was to explore and write about different topics. This was one of the ways I could see for me to grow as a writer.
  2. Music – My hidden secret is that I am a Musician in my spare time. I am a deep music lover and took the plunge to learn how to create music back in 2011. Like writing, I am naturally good at it and have been learning how to make House music on the weekends. I know that to get better I have to keep practising. And by practising I will always be that one step closer to reaching my full potential within the realms of music.
  3. Bodybuilding – For those of you who have been following my journey, you would have seen that I use to be the chubby boy with no abs. But I knew that with the right nutrition and the right training that I could excel and reach close to my bodies full potential.

The beautiful thing with the body though is that we can reach a state of what we call perfection and still always work at perfecting. It’s a never ending game and the same could be said with striving for success in life. Do we ever stop?

Back to you though, your potential and the question above… 

What does it mean for you to unlock your full potential?

I’ll help you to get the ball rolling:

  1. What are you good at?
  2. What do you do in your spare time?
  3. What do you enjoy doing?
  4. What would you like to improve?

The above questions can help you to look at your life in a broader light and bring about new energy in terms of your thinking. Once you have some fresh perspective, set some new goals to help get you going on your journey to personal excellence. You don’t have to wait for a New Year or for Monday morning to get started. There is no better time than NOW to get going!

If you are reading this right now YOU ARE A WINNER and never let anyone tell you other wise!

It’s been great catching up with you all and I’ll be back sooner than you know with some more of that good stuff 😉

Take it easy folks 😀

Much Love

David Richards
