Last night my buddy Jason Ferruggia, one of the world's most popular strength coaches, arrived in Denver. We headed over to Elway's steakhouse for a near ultimate Denver experience - eating steak while watching the Broncos. Jay had the buffalo rib-eye while I had the regular bone-in rib-eye, my "go to" meal at any steakhouse.
Later this morning we're going to hit the gym for an upper body workout. Jay has so much cool stuff going on now that he's moved out to California (he even had a chance to meet Arnold at Arnold's latest book release last month). But Jay still has his Renegade Gym back in Wachtung, New Jersey, a great place to train.
One thing Jay and I have in common is that we've made a TON of mistakes in our lives. But we keep on pushing. We learn from those mistakes. And each thing we've "failed" on in the past just makes us better the next time we do the same thing in the future.
It's the classic "failing forward". Momentum through mistakes.
Nothing wrong with that. It's a fact of life.
So keep pushing. Keep moving forward. Keep taking action. Continue to make mistakes, adjust course, and do things better in the future.
Admit to – and learn from – your mistakes. Mistakes are actually great things that happen to all of us…because with the knowledge you gain from them, you are able to achieve the best things in your life. Without the lows in life, the highs would never really seem that high.
Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:

“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it for I shall not pass this way again.” – Quaker Proverb
“One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”- Proverbs 11:24-25
