What’s Your Purpose?

By There are no tags 0 comments

If you were to leave this world today, what would you like your epitaph to read? What would have been your purpose? Think about that for a second. Now, what have you done today to move towards that purpose? Or, did you get caught up in the agenda of others?

The Guy In The Glass
by Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr.

When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.

For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.

He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest
For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the man in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

Elon ringing the PR Bell!

Elon ringing the PR Bell!

Above is a picture of my private client Elon. This picture was taken on Wednesday. I had Elon work up to a 6RM in the deadlift. The most weight I had programmed for him was 83 pounds within a Met-Con. On Wednesday he performed 6 reps with 160 pounds! After I told him how much was on the bar he was shocked! His form was still dead on and the speed of the bar was great so I know he has more in him but I decided to end the session at that weight for the day. Elon is 68 years old and before starting with me 1 year ago, he had never participated in a weight training program. He had run but that was about it.

I am sharing this because we all are capable of far more than we think we are. More on that next week.
