16 Apr Would You Follow Your Own Advice?
Over the weekend I came across a fantastic article written by the author the 5/3/1 program, Jim Wendler. Click HERE to read the article.
The premise of the article is that Jim is writing a letter to his younger self. Being that he is a strength expert the article’s main focus centers around sticking to the basics, being patient, and being in it for the long haul. However they are some other great bits of advice as well:
People get too wrapped up in the goal and not the events that need to happen to reach that goal. The goal seems so big, so far away. And they get frustrated. And they quit.
You do not quit. You never have. Mom and Dad made sure you didn’t quit. This will serve you well in all areas of life.
When you read, your mind expands. Your dreams become bigger and your words become more colorful.
When you train, your body becomes taut and hard. And when you train hard, your mind must overcome the physical pain to overcome and move on.
All these things go hand in hand. Never stop creating, moving forward, and kicking ass. Discard the negative and trust your heart”
All great words of advice. After all you’ve learned and from all your experiences if you could write a letter to your younger self what would it say? More importantly, would you accept and follow that advice today?
It’s never too late to follow your own advice….
