I have asked it in various shapes, forrms and guises before. Maybe I should ask my wife this one. Hehe. It would answer all her Nazi feminist "queries" instantly!
Then again, maybe not. Hehe.
But her aside, here it is.
And its a sage one in today' economic climate...
If YOU were given the chance right NOW - I mean, NOW - to get a steady, easy desk job (sort of like what I had in China in 2002, great job straight out of college, expat salary and so forth) - along with, plenty of girls - beer, what have you - whatever YOU choose to do with that cash, all you had to do was show up to the cushy job...
Grit it out NOW - lets say starting NOW - for the next 10 years building your OWN biz with no help whatsoever.
Remember, I ain't talkin about me or my story here.
Most people would, lets be honest - choose the former option, and lets be frank - there isn't necessarily anything wrong with choosing a life of medicrity and stability, sometimes, it's compensated very well!
The DOERS though - real doers - will know what is missing though.
And your deepest desires, which go unanswered this way.
Fitness wise, same thing, friend.
Many of the gains you see today for me - business wise and fitness wise both - well, as Jeff Bezos says -
"It was baked X number of years ago".
So it is with fitness.
I had never once imagined - even near to when I started this business in earnest - that my gains would come, and so ... VOLUMINOUSLY!
None of these books, none of them would have ever happened if I didnt set my stall out for the long run either consciously or not.
Fitness wise or not.
And the same thing applies today, ALL my business methods even today are possibly even more long term than before, much to the chagrin of certain ... ah, I wont go there.
The end result is ALWAYS worth it.
IF you put in the hard yards, and never quit.
And If YOU Want the sort of fitness gains I have, gains that never go away beyond a certain point even (assuming you still do the thing) - well, the 0 Excuses Fitness System is what you need to get - NOW.
Do so NOW.
Not so much to prove to me you're a doer, but YOURSELF, which is what really counts.
