I’m not going to mention WHO.
Because if I did ... well, nothing actually.
But I ain’t gonna mention the persons by name on this one, if just to see how many of you have been paying attention to “el cavemano”. Hehe.
Over the months, years, and so forth ...
... And here it goes.
“You’ve spoilt my whole life!”
And so goeth the chant from two people, and also the one and only BOZO Schofield, and if you’d boil his insanity down to one thing, it is this.
“Rahul has always done what he wanted, and ultimately (even after he went through hell occasionally) GOTTEN what he wanted somehow”.
And it’s true.
Could be workout wise, me losing that spare tyre (or 10, hehe) I once had around my waist.
Could be financially, and pulling rabbits out of the hat when NO-ONE expected it.
Hit ‘em when they dont expect it, hehe.
My wife had THIS to say about me at that job I once worked at. THAT job.
Now, I had no inkling what this meant.
“It’s a Hindi expression”, she replied. “It means someone who can pull a rabbit out of the hat, or a Houdini when ALL is lost”.
I’ve always been a big game player.
I do NOT shy away from BIG challenges, but the small, routine ones?
As Dr. K famously said, I’m not much of a one for Mickey Mouse stuff, hehe.
And that shines through in BattleTank shoulders – and “Pull-ups – from STUD to SUPER stud within a matter of weeks” – and Animal Kingdom Workouts – and literally ALL my fitness stuff and other writing.
I go the whole humpty friend. I either do it or I dont. No middle ground!
But anyway, the same people who said what they did ...
The profoundly loony and moronic Bozo? Well, enough said on him.
The other person was one who always HAS to have her own way no matter what and make others do her bidding and a person who hasn’t earned a SINGLE dollar, rupee, RMB, or anything in her life – and yet tells others how to do it.
Like a bald man giving yours truly advice on how to grow hair, hehe.
The other person?
Well, despite her many stellar qualities she steadfastly refuses to either acknowlege or realize, she has to blame everyone else BUT her for her current position in life.
And I’m not going to get into specifics here.
But point begets.
If YOUR own life ain’t where you want to be, bro, then STOP BLAMING others for it either consciously or not.
YES, some of us have it tougher. Always have.
YES, the cards aren;t always dealt FAIR in life.
But guess what.
Thats how the cookie crumbles, brah.
If you take longer to get good at handstand pushups than I did, or do it much quicker – well – thats how it is!
From Christ to Edison to Ford, all the men that have really accomplished anything of note have done so ONLY after surmounting temporary defeat of the MOST frustrating, disappointing, obstinate and stubborn onces.
That is not me saying it. It’s Napoleon Hill in “Outwitting the Devil”.
And he was right.
Think of that line anytime you’re down, my friend, and if you’re truly a person that gets it, and one of life’s doers, you shouldn’t need any more of a pick me up other than this!
Gotta go now, but I’ll be back with more soon.
PS – Fitness wise, I already gave you the link for some inspiration. But life wise? Well, I’ve put out Gumption Galore, a collection of my best tips of yore ... and if you print that little sucker out and keep it by your bedside, I can guarantee you one damn thing.
You’ll never ever run short of inspiration again!
