Sustainability, Not Short Cuts
Every starting point gets better and better.
Setting myself up for success in the future by making the most of the now.
I have found my sustainable lifestyle, I’m a champion for myself, I respect the process, and I love myself by recognizing that I need to improve.
I continue because this fulfills me and my values.
I wouldn’t do any of this if I didn’t love it or it didn’t ignite a bright fire within me that helps me to shine as a soul in this life.
Bodybuilding is a long game, you cannot just get into it for a crown, trophy, qualification, pro card, or placing.
So many people want to get into this sport as a way to fulfill a need for validation, perceptions of others, or recognition (even if this is subconscious).
This is a recipe for disaster because it breeds a mindset of instant gratification and extrinsic motivation.
Pursuing your best AND external validations needs to come with respecting the accolades you wish to receive and never expecting a handout.
The competitors with longevity are the ones who have passion, patience, persistence, and a process they can sustain.
They also want to stand among the best at their best—to EARN their wins.
I used to practice jiu jitsu daily while working to earn a blue belt. My sensei used to say, “if you muscle, you’ll tire, if you tire, you’ll die”.
This sticks with me still. Forcing, chasing, or engaging in extreme processes will tire you out.
But being in flow, executing on the techniques & strategies necessary for “submission” or winning, & letting your mind be free to see the next best move rather than forcing it is key to the long game.
Are you ready to improve your relationship with your goals, food, and your body so you can have a mindset that supports you in longevity necessary to succeed?
I have tons of resources for you.
