“Shut The Fuck Up And Train…”
… That was the mantra for motivation often screamed in my face by Naz as he loaded up the bar with another pair of ’20s.
The truth is I’ve not seen Naz in over 20 years.
He used the run the chip and sawdust gym where I’d train off-ice.
The kind of gym where testosterone oozes from the walls and ACDC roars from the radio.
The reality was, Naz was much more than a gym rat.
In fact, when it came to street smarts, his fitness empire stood shoulder to shoulder with the UK’s biggest, brightest and best.
Yet his mantra for money was to always put body before business.
A code of conduct and belief in the fact that a man’s body is intended to be trained.
It’s why, in my mind, men always have the potential to be bigger, stronger and faster.
… Because your body is designed from the ground up to WORK and be WORKED.
It’s why this week, and moving forward, most would be wise to push it like it’s meant to pushed.
… That is of course if you want to minimise procrastination and maximise PRODUCTION.
In other words for those that have started to see overwhelm biting at their heels, it might be time to consider the possibility of working the body to benefit the business.
- Exercising it consistently.
- Fuelling it consistently.
- Resting it consistently.
- Training it consistently.
… Four iron articles of agreement, that when committed to stone, will empower even the timidest of men in this tribe, to bear down and drive on – no matter the tornado of shit.
It’s why whenever my mind goes rogue and starts trying to steal my soul, there is one place, and one place only I go to STOP the rot…
A date with the weights.
It all starts with the body.
Make More. Provide More. Be More.
