We live in a fucked up world, no doubt about that. More and more problems of society are emerging. As those problems are showing up, we try to find solutions to those problems; that’s just the way it is. Where things begin to get screwed up is when we begin to try and take shortcuts. Instead of facing the situation, people tend to go around it, leaving it there so it will blow up in someone else’s face. Shortcuts appear as the easy and simple solution because we don’t have to deal with the problem, so everything is for the better. But let’s put it that way: You go to the gym, you want to get stronger. So you show up there and stack weight on the bar. As you come to lift it, you take a good look at it, realise that it may be heavy, which will necessitate you to struggle, to battle for your lifts. As it looks hard, you leave it there and proceed to the next exercise. Needless to say you won’t get stronger; you’ll stay weak.
That’s what’s killing us right now; we dodge the problems, leaving some other people to deal with all the crap. People don’t get stronger this way. But the problems, the challenges, they get harder and harder, because that’s what life does; it sends us trials we must go through to adapt ourselves, to get better. When people end up having no other choice but to deal with what’s coming, being too weak, they get other people to help them. But try to deadlift with 5-6 other persons holding the bar. Yes, you will most likely lift the weight, but you won’t get personally stronger. Having someone to watch your back, to spot you is a good idea, because adding to the fact that it prevents you from getting crushed by the weight, it gives you the motivation to crank yourself up and to dominate the weight; to walk that extra mile where most people stop. But other than that, you have to be strong as a person in order to overcome the obstacles in your way.
We were designed to be strong. In our primal state, there were no place for the weak; it was DO or DIE. You had to be a straight up warrior, a washed up meathead. Everyone had to be athletes: not only strong, but also quick and agile; explosive as f*ck. There were none of the comforts that pussyfied our modern civilisation, people had to run, sprint, jump and hunt. When your survival depends on your physical state and your mindset, you got to step it up and DO WORK! Being strong is not easy, I won’t lie to you. It takes a total devotion; always seek to get better, or life will catch up on you and you’ll end up left in dust. Keep challenging yourself before someone else does and outruns you; it’s the only way to take control of your life and to get the things you want and work hard to deserve.
If you want what’s best then you got to do what it takes: hard work & dedication, that’s the only way to kick ass and take names. To prevail, you must battle your way to the top, be relentless. Claim what you deserve. Again: DO or DIE.
Hard work pays off
