We all fall, gentlemen.
We all fall.
Even Alexander and Genghis Khan had their setbacks. Even Rome fell to its knees. Even the allies in World War II faced moments when they didn’t know if they would make it.
But they did.
Because they had to.
And so do you.
You see, you’ve got to keep moving forward.
Life is gonna hit you, kick you, smash your goddamned teeth in and knock you down.
It’s going to break you down, and the only thing that’s gonna fix it is you.
That’s the truth about this thing called life. It’s not all pretty. It’s not all lollipops and sunny days. It’s FUCKING SHIT sometimes.
But that’s just the way it is. That’s life.
When life throws you one of it’s unexpected curve balls, it’s easy to fall apart.
It’s easy to let it get you down and fall into a fit of bitchitis.
It’s happened to me. It’ll happen to you. Nobody is bulletproof.
But there comes a time when you have to get over it. There comes a moment where you have to decide – here and no further. Today I draw a line in the FUCKING SAND and pick up the pieces.
The sooner you get to that day the better. It’s what I like to call the day of reckoning.
It’s the day when you look in the mirror and say “Today I begin again”.
Say it. TODAY I BEGIN AGAIN.
So you tried for a deal and went bust? GET BACK UP!
The economy took away your job and you don’t know what to do? GET BACK UP!
You look like a little bitch with biceps the size of someone else’s wrists? GET UP, PICK UP THE WEIGHTS AND PUT YOUR BODY TOGETHER.
Nobody can do this for you. You have to get tired. You have to get fed up with feeling like a bag of dogshit. You have to decide, that even though you’ve been toppled and fallen, you are a king among men and you are going to reconquer, retake and rebuild.
Something amazing happens when you reach this point. Can you guess what it is?
You reconquer. You retake. You rebuild. Better than ever.
That’s life gentlemen. It’ll wipe you out of if you let it. It’ll take your genes off the face of this earth and toss them into the abyss.
Don’t let it.
Until next time!
Desire. Decide. Persist.
