People may look at my life and what I do with Rebooted Body from the outside an assume that I’m successful at maintaining a body and life I love because I have it easy. And they may think that others who have found success did so because they didn’t have quite as many obstacles as they have. Sometimes people think that when life punches them in the face, it means they’ve lost.
I take responsibility for that somewhat because of how edited my life is on Instagram and Facebook and the like. But this idea that we’re going to get into the boxing match of doing meaningful shit in life and not get punched in the face is highly destructive to our growth and our happiness, as is the idea that people who are successful are only successful because they had an easy opponent.
In today’s show it’s just me, you, and the microphone. I want to talk candidly about some of the challenges I’ve faced since launching Rebooted Body in 2013. These aren’t all the challenges by any means, but I think it’s enough to make the point that my success in getting and keeping a body and life I love has not come easy.
In doing so, I hope to motivate you to get up off the bench. And to reiterate that I want to help you win by giving you the tools and mindset necessary to survive being punched in the face repeatedly. Why? Because life is never going to hand you perfect circumstances. If you want to win, you have to know how to bob and weave. How to slip. How to cover. How to clench. How to get up when you get dropped. And how to fire back at life. That’s what every winner has done and that’s what you have to do if you want to win.
