Things adversity and iron has taught me

In life, we face adversity and even some brick walls. Things unspeakable at times. I can honestly say the gym has been a sanctuary for me at times, keeping me out of trouble and even saving my life. A few things iron have taught me:

  1. Anything is possible. While things don’t happen how you want them to, or even when you want them to… you keep plugging away at things, and you will get there.
  2. The only one stopping you is you.
  3. Have faith. While life can be arduous (like how working out can be at times) at times, don’t give up on yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, who will
  4. GOD AIN’T PLAYING… NEITHER IS THE DEVIL… so why are you? Life is too short to be down, too short to dwell on the past, etc. Life truly speeds by (especially in our high-paced, ultra-competitive world). As Outkast (Andre Benjamin and Antwan Patton, ATL rap group) once famously quoted, “Get up, get out and get something”.

In closing, I will say this: though life can/will be tough and frustrating, you need to know that this will only work if you choose to stay positive and seek success.
