As it was MEANT to be lived, bro!
As ... but anyway, flash back time first.
Wayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the day (this was REALLY way back in the day), my mother and father finally and grudgingly “reconciled” to the fact their son was “en route” to “spoiling his life by running around in vague places”, and “being adventurous”.
These comments were all made tons of times in some way, shape or form, but luckily yours truly although NOWHERE near as hard headed and HEADSTRONG as I am NOW, didn’t listen.
Like I said, the FORCE was always there within me.
Like a genie, uncorking and unbottling it was what counted. Which I did and do plenty of, hehe. (the bottles).
And anyway, that is probably another reason they didnt want me to go. I remember complaining about lugging groceries up flights of stairs (before writing books about how Chinese damed carry massive and mammoth bottles of water up stairs (or how skinny cHinese dudes lug garganturan weights up stairs most notably A/C compressrors and such) and why YOU SHOULD TOO – but hey – I was a “Jim Shim at home” addict then!) and the first thing Mom thought was “he’s carrying cases of beer up stairs”.
No I wasn’t.
They were all getting delivered, usually by cut little gals that would giggle and laugh at my ever expanding BELLY (back then).
Nothing if not brutally frank are those gals in China ...
And I love it! (because for the most part they keep it interesting).
Smart girls, really.
But anyway, when they came to visit me, we went to Beijing.
Did a tour of the forbidden palace or what not.
Which was so boring I couldn’t wait to get back to the hotel to pound BEER.
(which I did later. Four bottles I think ...)
But anyway, during all of this tour and the friendly tour guide showing us around, Daddy made the comment about a gal (curiously enough the birds be chirping agin as I write this! Spirit!) ....
“you can find all that very easily here!”
(I believe after looking at some young dame hanging on to a Westerner's arm or something)
Now, I already knew this, of course.
But he told me.
The tone was in sharp and stark contrast to what he said at the age of 17.
“Those Chinese girls! Beware! They’ll TRAP YOU!”
curiously enough in all my years in America I never once dated a Chinese gal!
Or one of Asian origin.
Was all hot Southern babes, hehe.
(ah, those summer months and the SORORITIES, hehe).
But anyway, point of this is, you ask?
Is, for one that he made the comment without my mother noticing (she was busy arguing over something on some “Tshirt” or some such stuff with another equally crankly older American tourist. Dont ask. I stayed away, hehe).
Or maybe she did, but didnt care.
Probably didnt care.
My point is this tho.
Everyone wants to do it, my friend.
Why NOT DO IT?
We’ve all been programmed to believe and think life is a drudgery.
Is it any wonder that looking around us right now, what do we see in the World?
Thought, my friend is what changes things.
You were NOT MEANT to “do nothing with your life and be a slave to corporate jobs (unless thats your thang)”.
We ALL have that something inside of us that we want to do.
Precious few have the balls to DO IT.
And the rest complain saying “they have the chance to do it, so they do, but we didnt get the chance”.
Foeey x 10.
We MAKE our own luck, our own CHANCES!
Thats just how it works brah.
You attract it into your life.
Point is, really, live life KINGSIZE.
That isn’t always the easiest way to to do it.
Fitness wise, following the roid monsters in their pump shump dump routines might look like the easiest way out NOW.
Joining a bozo job might look great for someone that is “down and out” (or thinks he or she is).
In the long run, is that what you really WANT?
Get after what you WANT, bro, not what they say you should want.
You KNOW you want to do pull-ups galore and be called “pull-up champ” or “You have that X taper to your back” or “you look like a movie star”.
You KNOW you want the Jim-bo Bimbos to GOGGLE as you crush their hands with that GRIP ship.
And you KNOW, nothing compares to the feeling you get from cooly and casually pumping out handstand pushups right there in the gym, right under their very NOSES!
(or, in the park outside bathrooms with dogs licking your nose, hehe).
Get after it. NOW.
You got one life, bro.
Do it – NOW!
Ps – Really. Just DO IT!
