I do not know what it is that you do in the iron game.
You might be an athlete.
You might be a powerlifter.
You might be a bodybuilder.
You might be a coach.
I also do not know what it is that you in life.
You might be an artist.
You might be a dentist.
You might be a singer.
You might even be a fitness professional.
Regardless of what you do you need to aim to be the best.
Do not aim to be middle-of-the-pack. Aim to be the best. When you adopt this mindset you will streamline your efforts into maximizing your skill set.
If you aim to be average then your ceiling is going to be set very low. You will struggle to attain success in your chosen field because you are not aiming high.
When you aim to be like the average person, this will not enable you to reach your maximum potential and maximum success.
Aiming to be the best does not guarantee that you will become the best. But it will allow you to maximize your ability and leave nothing on the table. The worst feeling in the world is knowing that you did not give it your all.
Michael Jordan was not the best player when he entered the League in 1984. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird were the two top alpha dogs who were winning championships and garnering all of the notoriety.
Jordan, being who he is did not allow this to continue. Before you knew it Jordan was completely dominating the League and become known as the League’s best player.
The title was not given to him. He had to earn it through hard work and determination. The same opportunity can be afforded to you.
My goal in the fitness game is to be the best. I want to be the best trainer. Period.
Am I the best trainer in the game right now? NO.
There are many great trainers who I have learned from over the years who have more experience and knowledge in the game than I do.
I respect them. But should that stop me in reaching my goal to become the best? Heck no.
When you wake up in the morning your mindset must be one that you want to aim to be the best in what you do.
Are you a sprinter? Be the best sprinter.
Are you a singer? Be the best singer.
Are you a bodybuilder? Be the best bodybuilder.
Are you a teacher? Be the best teacher.
Are you a powerlifter? Be the best powerlifter.
Are you a parent? Be the best parent.
Remember it all starts in the mind as there is always someone better than you at what you do.
Michael Jordan faced that when he entered the NBA. You can either accept that and accept being average or you can put in the work necessary to become the best.
Jordan chose option 2. Th best thing any of us can do is to chose option 2 and put in the work necessary to be the best.
Work to be the best and success will come to you.
I’ll holla at you next time,
The People’s Trainer
