Who am I…?

This is a question of the ages…

Today,  I want to try and simplify it and give you one answer…

When you, or someone else, asks “who are you?” I want you to answer them and yourself with four simple words:

I am a CHAMPION!

Watch this and let it sink in:

“Defeat, retreat, those are not in my words.” Powerful….

Strong beliefs in yourself and in your abilities is what will help you succeed, to pick yourself up when you fall, to never stop moving forward, to never doubt and to never quit!

Ignore the sappy music…but let the words connect:

“Success is failure turned inside out.” LOVE IT!

Think to yourself, what would a Champion do?

To become a Champion takes hard work. You must never quit, you must keep pushing ahead, stay on track, and keep a strong belief in yourself.

We all have bumps along the road, but you can not let these deter you from living up to your potential….from becoming a Champion.

Underneath it all, We are all Champions…for some it just takes a closer look within, extra hard work, and gut busting commitment in the face of failure when quitting would be the easiest thing to do.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people don’t like doing.

I decided to write this post because it often needs reminding….just as much for myself.

We all have goals, whether it’s losing weight, gaining muscle or whatever the case may be, but we all experience moments of weakness and failure. It’s at these times that true champions are born! A champion will get back up, push harder, and never ever quit!

Jordan was a champion…but he put in hours of hard work. Stories of him dribbling a basket ball to and from school, spending hours making free throws etc have been often documented.

Arnold was a champion…I remember a classic story about how his legs and calves were at one point a week area for him. Which is why in many early photographs, he was predominantly pictured from the waist up. So, he would wear pants that were cut into shorts to “show case” his legs which motivated him to train them harder and make them grow. He was also known to go into the gym and squat for 1 to 2 hours straight….just squats!

Find your weaknesses and make them strong!

Champions are comfortable being uncomfortable...let that one sink in.

There are many champions to draw on. Find one that relates to you, believe in yourself that you are a champion, and get after it. But, remember one thing about becoming a champion….it takes hard work and belief that you can!

Champions look adversity in the face and say (warning, strong language): “F%&K OFF!!!”

I believe in you…but you also have to believe in yourself!

Who are you?

I AM A CHAMPION!!!

Be a CHAMPION!

Straight up and striving to be a champion,

Matt B
