    You cannot talk like a failure
    and expect to be successful. “
    At the end of the day,
    remind yourself
    that you did the best you could today,
    and that is good enough.”

    PT OF THE DAY

    TODAY’S PT OF THE DAY I’M USING MARIA FORD’S (AKA Coco Qream)
    a heart felt inspirational write up she posted
    the morning after bringing home 2 trophies in Figure at the Canadian Nationals....
    it brought tears to my eyes...
    and competitor or not you can learn something from her story....
    IN MARIA’S WORDS:
    “Yesterday National competition was fun.
    Being backstage and just waiting for my category to be call observing athletes with their coaches amazed me.
    Some of the athletes are pretty intimidating to look at.
    Bad little voice saying tricks with me.
    " I think your not going to make it"
    I just have to flick that negative voice
    and let the good voice tell me "you got this Maria"!
    I humble, set my luggage next to my sifu Brandon Best calm myself,
    focus on me, and meditate.
    I said to myself
    " I train, sacrifice, and prep so hard to get to this
    and I'm not letting myself down
    just because I saw an athlete more condition and bigger than me".
    I eat my meals, follow all the guidelines my coach Dawn Alison Ifbb Pro prepared for me.
    Just focus, peace, calm, great smile.
    I'm so happy when they call my number top 5 at the morning show.
    And I said to myself " this shit is for real now"!..
    At the evening show when they called my name and I won and placed top 3 in class A open and class A Master.
    Wow! I was shocked!
    I couldn't be happier with the results.
    I said to myself I won and I'm third all over Canada.
    Looking back at my very first show last year October 1st 2016
    and July 9 then winning top 3 at National July 29, 2017 is such an accomplishment!
    Now I'm moving forward,
    we're flying out August 29 to compete with top athletes from Mexico, USA
    Pittsburgh Northern American competition Aug 31st .
    Oh ya baby!!!
    Pro card come to me!
    I want you so bad I will get you!
    I'm not stopping I will keep going because I'm born ready!
    I want to thank all my friends and family that wished me and support me.
    Big thank you and I love her dearly my coach Dawn Alison for keeping me in a very tight leash
    and I know she keeps it tighter today.
    She pushes me, trains me like a beast,
    but polish me like a beautiful muscles barbie.
    From posing, makeup, hair, suits,
    I just listen to her because I know what's best for me.
    I will not second doubt her with her advice and decisions we both make.
    We're a great team and we're just starting .
    Hopefully my dream will come true just to be next to the top athletes in Olympia.
    I always set a plan ,
    a plan that will motivate me,
    and keep me focus to accomplish.
    Big thank you to my sifu Brandon Best for all his advice to me.
    You rock Brandon!
    The last but not the least
    is my big supporter the big beast behind the selfie camera Joshua Liberman
    my gorgeous fiance love of my gains for always there more me.
    My Knight in shining armor, my partner for life,
    my beastfriend and big Papi.
    I love you so much thank you baby Love for being awesome!
    Pittsburgh here I come!
    Let's do this!”

    “To conquer frustration,
    one must remain intensely focused on the outcome,
    not the obstacles.”


    “Stand like a beaten anvil, when thy dream
    Is laid upon thee, golden from the fire.
    Flinch not, though heavily through that furnace-gleam
    The black forge-hammers fall on thy desire.


    Demoniac giants round thee seem to loom.
    'Tis but the world-smiths heaving to and fro.
    Stand like a beaten anvil. Take the doom
    Their ponderous weapons deal thee, blow on blow.


    Needful to truth as dew-fall to the flower
    Is this wild wrath and this implacable scorn.
    For every pang, new beauty, and new power,
    Burning blood-red shall on thy heart be born.


    Stand like a beaten anvil. Let earth's wrong
    Beat on that iron and ring back in song.”


    WORDS TO LIVE BY.... “PRESS ON...”

    “The reward is in the risk.”
    “The uncertainties in life are so uncertain for us
    to determine the kind woe we shall be entangled in in the next future.
    When you stay dormant,
    your life is at risk;
    when you dare to take a step,
    you take a step to take a risk.
    We have a choice.
    Yes!
    a choice to choose to dare
    to get to our real reasons on earth
    or to choose to live in mediocrity and conformity,
    but,
    we ought to note that,
    it is riskier to risk nothing
    when the life we live is always at risk.”

    Rise and shine.
    WELCOME TO THE GRIND....


    6am and your hand can't make it to the alarm clock before


    the voices in your head start telling you that its too early,


    too dark and too cold to get out of bed.


    Aching muscles lie still in rebellion


    pretending not to hear your brain commanding them to move.


    A legion of voices are shouting their unanimous permission for you


    to hit that snooze button


    and go back to dreamland.


    But you didn't ask for their opinion.


    The voice you have chosen to listen to is one of defiance.


    The voice that says there was a reason you set that alarm in the first place.


    So sit up,


    put your feet on the floor


    and don't look back because we've got work to do.





    Welcome to the grind.





    For what is each day


    but a series of conflicts between the right way and the easy way.


    10000 streams fan out like a river delta before you,


    each one promising the path of least resistance.


    Thing is,


    you're heading upstream,


    and when you make that choice,


    when you decide to turn your back on what's confortable


    and safe


    and what someone called common sense,


    well that's day one.


    From there it only gets tougher,


    so just make sure this is something you want


    because the easy way out will always be there,


    ready to wash you away,


    all you have to do is pick up your feet.


    But you aren't going to, are you?


    With each step comes the decision to take another.


    You are on your way now,


    but this is no time to do well on how far you've come.


    You are on a fight against an opponent you cant see


    but oh you can feel among your heels cant you?


    feel him breathing down your neck.


    You know what that is?


    That's you.


    Your fears, your doubts and insecurities,


    ganged up like a firing squad ready to shoot you out of the sky.


    But dont lose heart,


    while they are not easily defeated


    they are far from invincible.


    Remember,


    this is the grind,


    a battle royale between you and your mind your body


    and the devil on your shoulders telling you this is just a game,


    this is just a waste of time,


    your opponents are stronger than you.


    Drown out the voice of uncertainty


    with the sound of your own heartbeat,


    burn away yourself down with the fire deep beneath you.


    Remember what we are fighting for


    and never forget that momentum is a cruel mistress,


    she can turn on a dime with the smallest mistake,


    she is ever searching for the weak place in your armor,


    that one tiny thing you forgot to prepare for.


    So as long as the demon is hiding the details the question remains:


    Is that all you got?


    Are you sure?


    And when the answer is yes.


    When you have done all you can to prepare yourself for battle.


    Then it's time to go forth


    and bravely face the enemy,


    and the enemy within.


    Only now you must take that fight into the open,


    into hostile territory.


    You are a lion in a field of lions,


    all humming the same elusive pray


    with the desperate starvation that says victory is the only thing that can keep you alive.


    So believe that voice that says that


    you can run a little faster


    and you can throw a little harder,


    that for you,


    the laws of physics are merely a suggestion.





    Luck is the last dying wish


    of those who wanna believe that winning can happen by accident.


    Sweat on the other hand


    is for the ones who know its a choice.


    So decide now,


    because destiny waits for no man.


    So when the time comes


    and a thousand different voices are trying to tell you:


    you are not ready for it,


    listen instead to that lone voice of distant,


    one that sais you are ready,


    you are prepared,


    its all up to you know,


    so rise and shine.

    Today is a new day.
    Don't let your history interfere with your destiny!
    Let today be the day you stop being a victim of your circumstances
    and start taking action towards the life you want.
    You have the power
    and the time to shape your life.
    Break free from the poisonous victim mentality
    and embrace the truth of your greatness.
    You were not meant for a mundane or mediocre life!

    Don't Quit



    When Things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and debts are high,
    And you want to Smile but have to sigh.
    When care is pressing you down a bit,
    Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.


    Life is queer with its twists and turns,
    As everyone of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about,
    When he might have won if he'd stuck it out,
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
    You might succeed with another blow.


    Often the struggler has given up,
    When he might captured the victor's cup.
    And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
    How close he was to the golden crown,


    Success is failure turned inside out,
    The silver tint of clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems afar,
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
    It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

    “Be savagely thankful,
    and continuously in awe of the power you possess.
    You are alive.
    Inside of an endless cosmos
    with the freedom that shines brightest in the dark..
    Choices.


    Your choices belong to you so intimately,
    that they will never leave you.
    They, unlike the changing nature of love,
    where the failing machinery of our bodies will never abandon you to time.
    Good or bad,
    they will stay always.
    An antique that shows the future
    who you were and what you stood for.


    So know that what you choose to stand for,
    is what will inform you of what you've chosen to stand against,
    so stand.
    Let each foot crash land into what you believe,
    and plant them they're firmly
    so they may take root in your convictions.
    And stand.”

    “Your biggest opponent isn’t the other guy.
    It’s human nature.”
    Every day,
    every moment
    YOU & YOU ALONG MAKE CHOICES...
    those choices shape your life
    & shape you....
    your life is the residual effect
    of all your past choices & actions...
    live in the moment for the moment,
    the present is all we have....
    success is the sum of small efforts
    made moment by moment,
    day in, day out,
    week after week,
    month after month,
    year after year,
    and this my friend is YOUR LIFE,
    YOU....
    take responsibility for your life,
    your happiness,
    your health,
    your SELF....
    “There are only two options regarding commitment.
    You’re either IN
    or you’re OUT.
    There is no such thing as life in-between.”

    Goals in writing are dreams with deadlines.

    "This one step
    choosing a goal and sticking to it
    changes everything."

    “Focus on your goals,
    not your fear.”
    “An average person
    with average talent,
    ambition and education
    can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society,
    if that person has clear, focused goals.
    ”“It’s called an ‘accomplishment’,
    not an ‘intent-ishment’.
    You’ve got to BE it to SEE it.
    NO MORE EXCUSES
    Decide what you want,
    create a plan,
    and MAKE IT HAPPEN!”

    “Determine never to be idle.
    No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time,
    who never loses any.
    It is wonderful how much may be done,
    if we are always doing.”
    “As Aristotle said,
    'Excellence is a habit.'
    I would say furthermore
    that excellence is made constant
    through the feeling that comes right after one has completed a work
    which he himself finds undeniably awe-inspiring.
    He only wants to relax until
    he's ready to renew such a feeling all over again
    because to him,
    all else has become absolutely trivial.”

    Life is now.
    There was never a time when your life was not now,
    nor will there ever be.
    “Happiness,
    not in another place but this place…
    not for another hour,
    but this hour.”
    “The secret of health for both mind and body is
    not to mourn for the past,
    worry about the future,
    or anticipate troubles,
    to live in the present moment
    wisely and earnestly.”

    “Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone or the situation anymore.
    It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over
    is yourself.”
    “You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks,
    or even months
    over-analyzing a situation;
    trying to put the pieces together,
    justifying what could've,
    would've happened...
    or you can just leave the pieces on the floor
    and move the fuck on.”
