muscle & fitness shoot, eating clean all day:)
|Power Wheel Strength:) haha|
TODAYS QUESTION: Is Mark Wahlberg in the movie "the Fighter" stronger for his level of boxing (he attained of world champion" OR for his being able to maintain focus and train hard despite his challenges from his family?
My answer? Well I bring this up because what he did was the ultimate type of goal to pursue which i feel all people should pursue if they pursue a goal, his...he wanted to box, to be his best he could be....AND THIS is what brought him to such high levels of performance in the ring AND in life! He focused even harder because of his surroundings. He did not focus on an appearance, like most all fitness folks, he focused 110% on a non appearance big goal...being the best boxer he could be which brought out of him....tremendous focus, skill, conditioning, mental strength and fortitude = your highest level of performance!! These are the best goals...not superficial appearance based, but higher pure best effort performance based....with a side effect of looking ripped:) hahahaha
One more point is how he dealt with his family, mental strength, fortitude....man that is the real key to high level success, look at someone who has dug and clawed his way to the top and you'll see someone who most likely came from humble beginnings. The book the Talent Code talks all about this, how pockets of poverty, unique thinkers and outside the box workers created something off the charts successful and brought great success to that sport or job they do. In this book they talked alot about these points in this book, it's a great read and will really make you think about things differently:)
