Success is Simple

Success is simple once you realize how difficult it is.

You understand?

Listen, whatever you want to accomplish, someone out there has already done it and written a book about how they did it.

The path has been blazed. The steps to success have been published.

All you have to do is follow those steps.

But you have to realize it's probably going to be very, very difficult.

So accept the challenge. Follow the steps. Succeed.


When talking to my clients, I always say:

"Fat loss is simple once you realize how hard it is."

Then you know how much effort, honesty, responsibility, long-range planning, creativity, intensity, discipline, thought and control the process is going
to take.

It is not easy.

It is not going to happen from any magic pill. Only once you accept that will you succeed.

Today's workout for me:

1A) Rack Lockout
1B) Seated Row

2A) Pushups
2B) BB Row

3A) Triceps
3B) DB Curls

And since it's Meathead Monday all across the land, here's a bench press tips video for you (if you can c me)

=> Bench Press Tips

Finally, today's official kickbutt mindset tip, if you haven't already been mentally kicked in the butt enough:

Be positive. Appreciate life. No matter what it brings, there is always a bright side.

Off to make lemonade out of lemons today,

Hey Craig,

Great advise. If you are determined enough, want it bad enough, dedicated enough, you will get there. It is so worth it!
