Guest Post by Zach Even-Esh
This is a guest post by one of the coolest, funniest, most down to earth dudes in the fitness industry… Zach ‘Killing it Bruddha’ Even-Esh… This post is RAW and CONTROVERSIAL and NOT for the easily offended… but Zach nails it… and his brutal honesty is appreciated BIG TIME here a ‘Kick Back Life’
Make no mistake about it, those who surround you are very, VERY likely NOT at all like you. They are satisfied with life. They enjoy going through the motions and having that routine.
They love the safety net they have and rather than live their dreams they watch reality TV and dream their life.
That’s a safe way to live. Steady pay check, pension, health insurance – that stuff rules, especially when you have a family.
It’s also extremely tough to let go of, but, nothing Great has ever been achieved without great risk.
Babe Ruth was not only the Home Run King, he was also the Strike Out King because he ALWAYS swung for the fences, he didn’t want to hit a single or double. Besides, you and I both know Home Runs and Grand Slams are what we REALLY want.
You’re a rare breed, that is why you are here, reading this very post and all the other posts on this Blog that give you goose bumps.
These words help you push onward and upward, against all odds, especially those who surround you on a daily basis.
99.9% of people will tell you how crazy you are, they will try to talk you out of “it” and tell you to keep doing what you’re doing. You know, keep that safe job, don’t be stupid, yadda, yadda, yadda
Truth be told…
It scares THEM when they see you going above and beyond the norm. It makes them feel uncomfortable because who the hell are you, to break the rules, to break through boundaries and ride the Bull by the horns.
You need to push the envelope.
You need to wake up earlier, stay up later and run faster, longer and harder. Not all the time, but, in the beginning, this Extra “stuff” is what will help you advance.
Everyone else will tell you to sleep, get some rest, there’s always tomorrow, right? Sure, they are right, there is always tomorrow. But, how old are you now? I have a vivid feeling you remember 10 years ago like it was 10 minutes ago. Time goes fast, REALLY fast.
Maybe tomorrow is too far away and as Tony Robbins said, “How about NOW would be a good time to start.” And no, that is not a question, that’s a kick in the ass telling you to make “it” happen.
You will stumble and you will fall. Mud will be thrown in your face and many will kick you when you’re down. Heck, most will kick you when you’re UP.
Friends will be jealous and others will be angry. Who are you to steal their thunder?
You need to get up…AGAIN…and AGAIN….over and over again.
You must climb mountains and break through brick walls.
I know you have a burning desire in your heart, YOU know it as well as I do, you want more in your life.
That is why you’re HERE, reading this Blog, because you’re a fucking warrior and there is definitely something different inside of you, tell me I’m wrong and I’ll show you a liar.
You want something so bad you’re willing to fight the Devil if you have to, isn’t that right?
Learn to say “FUCK YOU!!” to those who try to hold you back. 99.9% of the people you know will tell you it can’t be done.
I’m here to support you and I Knew you needed this little “pick me up” at this time in your life, didn’t you
I’m with you, trust me, I’m with you.
I had more people tell me to shut my gym down when times were tough, membership was low and things were plain and simple sucking ass.
I can count the supporters on one hand that told me I could make my gym into a reality! I now have a waiting list to enter my gym.
When I began writing about my own workouts and the way I trained athletes from my garage and a beat down playground some of the biggest names in the industry were fired up because who was I, some dude training athletes from a garage and kicking ass.
I could have backed down, climbed into my shell and never came out again – “they” would have loved that.
But, I’ve seen too many people quit and give up 2 inches before the finish line, they just didn’t know the finish line was there. If only they pressed on that extra inch or two things in their life would be completely different.
You need to be able to go to sleep at night with a smile on your face.
You need to be able to look in the mirror and love what you see.
You need to be able to get rid of that burning pit in your stomach or it will eat you alive.
Watch these 2 videos below and then post a comment below and tell everyone out there what you’re ging to do, why you’re gonna do it and feel free to tell the naysayers a BIG “FUCK YOU!!”
