What feeble minded people are deciding your limits?
Just because a weak minded person does not think something can be done does not mean they are correct. Weak people will always try and keep you at their level of failure. People create and do great things every day, pushing physically and mentally past their limits. Things once thought impossible became possible because someone believed that it was possible.
It's the weak feeble minded people that sit around figuring out how it can not be done, instead of going out and taking the first step to becoming great. Going against the majority will put you in a small group of action takers and doers.
The first big push for me was a senior in high school wondering if I could do 1,200 pushups in one hour. At first I thought to myself this will be tough, never doing any volume like that.
Even though being a serious weight trainer and having a bench press of 330lbs at 145lbs, but I figured I will give it a shot and see where I finish at and then a least I will have a starting point.
I used the clock of a VCR and figured that if I did 20 every minute for 60 minutes I will have completed 1,200 pushups.
I stuck to the simple plan, not doing more or less, just stuck to 20 every time the clock changed, then I would have a little rest waiting for the clock to change.
I finished just like I wanted 1,200 pushups in one hour, because I had a goal and seen the end, I knew that at the end I would have to push harder to accomplish the goal and refused to let my mind tell my body to quit.
I would have fallen over dead before I thread in the towel. And you know what, after accomplishing the goal it became easier to accomplish larger feats of physical and mental training.
Once I broke my limited thinking and my own mental barrier it got easier to set bigger goals, and I always seem to accomplish my fitness goals, I really believe that if it's important to me my mind will figure out a way to get the job done .
Since then I have always had the belief that I will get it done, including establishing and breaking world records. There will always haters but that should not bother you. What people think of me or what they believe is none of my business. As long as I continue to get better and do the best I can, I will have no trouble sleeping at night.
My opinion you will get now listening to people that have done nothing, have proven nothing and continue to do nothing.
I never listened to anyone that is not doing better than me. I'm not going to ask a bum where to invest 5,000 dollars and I will not listen to someone tell me what they think I'm capable of, I will decide myself!
