Sage lesson indeed in today’s email, so hang tight and let’s sget into it.
I remember reading this on Ben Settle’s site once ...
“My concealed carry instructor once said that “everyone’s goin gto do what they’re going to do””
(and being I read this a year or so ago, I do not remember the exact wording his instructor used – but basically what he was saying was “you can take a horse to water but you cant make it drink”. )
What do I mean?
Well, consider for example yours truly’s long, Jesus like (at a point, and getting there again now) LOCKS.
Complimented by a well hidden BALD Spot, hehe.
Hair that everyone (excepting a few people) have despised ever since I knew.
I remember a highly idiotic teacher in high school (we used to call him “The Watchman” for he was the one assigned to catch those in the habit of “bunking” (sorry, thats an old British term,hehe) class etc) looking me up and down in 12 th grade and having THIS to say.
“You want me to cut your hair off for you, boy!?”
Menacing, imposing. Giggle, giggle.
Or my Dad in eighth grade ...
Or my Mom throwing a fit about it when I returned from China for a brief sojourn in 2006 ...
Or my wife, who makes it a point to boot me to the barber every chance she gets (and she doesnt get many, but she tries).
Even I’m laughing writing this!
But reall,y point begets.
Amidst all this, I cannot recall a time where I’ve had short hair consistently for any length of time.
Regardless of the fact that according to these fine folks – “I look more handsome with short hair”.
I highly doubt people would getting their panties in a wad over it if that were to be the case.
And even if that were to be true, so what.
I don’t like short hair on myself, period.
So, I keep it long!
And thats as simple as it gets, and what it boils down. Given I’m hardly parading about nude in public, I think thats an allowance that can be made, no (is what I tell these people).
Not that it does a damn bit of good.
Because guess what.
Everyones gonna do what they’re going to do ultimately.
Me, you, them, everyone.
You can take a horse to water, brah, but you simply cannot “make” it drink.
Fitness wise, thats why I never try and “argue” my own point with people who’re clearly not interested.
When people call me up and try and “draw me” (bait me) into the “Deadlifts are better than pull-ups” idiotic discussion, I dont take it (I used to earlier, but now, no longer).
All you’ll get out of me is a simple “OK”.
And thats it!
For some reason, that infuriates these nuts more, hehe.
Andthey keep trying to press their own point of view to me, and it might as well so much water sliding down a duck’s (or a beached whale’s) back ..
If someone doesnt want to do something, they wont do it.
Fitness wise, if you here on this list WANT to make something off yourself, and your fitness levels, and indeed life in general, well, I’m HERE for you and then some and I’ll give you all the advice you need – and then some!
But if you’re inclined to do the exact opposite, well, then guess what.
Youwon’t hear a peep outta me.
Because, “they’re going to do what they will, and so will everyone, and ...”
Ah, but wait. We covered that one before didnt we??
And thats that for now. Back soon!
Ps – Pick up the best damned fitness system TODAY, my friend.
