Or, the word "never". I cannot point out the number of times I've said "never" - in fact, even in terms of China - and there bang I am a few months down the line - back in good ole Chna. The Middle King(k) dom, as they say, NO pun intended!
But this isn't about kink, it's about keeping the spirit ALIVE, not just alive, but kicking.
What am I referring to, you might ask.
Well, as the majority of the world drifts more towards pessimism and doom and gloom than ever before, NOW is as good a time as any for me to say this - especially given the backdrop of looming war everywhere (please dont say I did not warn you WELL in advance, hehe) - as I get done with 100 squats, 10 pull-ups, and a few lumberjack swings, and thick bar work - as I'm fixing to get BACK to it soon - "never say die".
It's true, my friend.
In the vast majority of cases, even those you might consider seemingly hopeless, there is ALWAYS, I repeat, ALWAYS something you can do - though often times, that something might not be easy at all to spot.
Napoleon Hill's story in Outwitting the Devil of following his gut, spending money he didnt have on a fancy hotel - having faith he'd FIND the right financier - illustrates this perfectly when he says he "gave up all hope" and paused to rest (not in those words, but that is the gist) after being EXHAUSTED after doing but think, and search for the better half of a day and a half for the right person, not to be able to find it.
... then in a flash, VOILA!
Against all odds, the name came to him - much like the plan to go Philly did.
You'll have to read the book for more - again, I get nothing from that. YOU DO!
It's one of Hills lesser known books, so controversial in his time they didnt even publish it till years after the great man passed on.
He still lives - through his books, the most well known of which is Think and Grow Rich, but thats hardly the one I admire the most, though its a gem and masterpiece in itself.
Many times, business wise I've logically "all but given up".
Situations have seemed UTTERLY hopeless sometimes, literally so.
Yet, I found it in in me to keep the faith and keep going "one more round" as Rocky says!
One more round is indeed what makes ALL The difference!
And the way Ive done it is by knowing there is ALWAYS something I can do - and you can do.
Now, some idiots will no doubt (and this has happened!) get back with history about the Holocaust and other horrors from the past and say "what in those situations"?
Well, sorry to break the news to you - but SOME people survived even back then in the direst of circumstances.
Human spirit can only be broken if you LET it be broken.
Most would prefer to bitch, moan and give up at the slightest hint of misfortune, which is fine, hence ... well, do I need to say more?
But those that survived even in those horrible circumstances - I'll bet they did what they had to do at any cost.
I'll bet they never gave up - even when they didnt know it - in their MINDS.
Far too FEW people are willing to do what it really takes, to keep going aganist all odds.
I'm proud to note I'm one of the very few in that regard.
And YES, despite what people say about "not everyone has that capacity!" - well, I'm sorry to tell you, but thats a false statement if there ever was one - we aint talking beer drinking capacity here for one, hehe, which admittedly not many can match my prowress at.
We're talking gumption, a quality ANYONE can build and develop if they choose to.
Look at the strongman with no legs and an upper body most people can only dream of - I'm sure you know the dude? Hes been going viral all over Twitter and such ... even wechat in China!
Fitness wise, same thing.
There is always something you can do, if you WANT To do it, and if you DO - the second being KEY, the first COMES.
If you dont DO - nothing will happen despite your best intentions my friend - if you combine pure, solid, utter DESIRE with DOING - that is when and how mountains literally MOVE for you, both life wise and fitness wise and in every regard.
Do what you will with that message - but it's all very true.
And - rememeber - my workouts, the WIDE panpoloy of workouts I give you in the 0 Excuses Fitness System make sure even the most ardent of doers and the laziest of lazy phockers - have something to do - anyday, everyday, anytime, any place.
