Don’t be so anxious and don’t worry. There are going to be a lot of times where you’re going to feel helpless, powerless, and the future seems hopeless. Remember how we talked about The Process? Just focus on doing the Right Things the Correct Way.
People get too wrapped up in the goal and not the events that need to happen to reach that goal. The goal seems so big, so far away. And they get frustrated. And they quit.
You do not quit. You never have. Mom and Dad made sure you didn’t quit. This will serve you well in all areas of life.
Read more. Write more. Train more. Keep your head down and don’t worry that your bank account is empty. Don’t worry that you don’t have a car or a computer – you can write on scrap papers found in the recycling bins in college hallways. The important thing is to write and read and train.
When you write, your thoughts become alive and take form. They become real. You know why no one writes the Great American Novel? Because they’re too scared to put pen to paper.
When you read, your mind expands. Your dreams become bigger and your words become more colorful.
When you train, your body becomes taut and hard. And when you train hard, your mind must overcome the physical pain to overcome and move on.
All these things go hand in hand. Never stop creating, moving forward, and kicking ass. Discard the negative and trust your heart.
And most of all, don’t get married. At least not the first time.
— Jim Wendler” —It’s taken me a few years to comprehend things. But I get it these days, and for that I thankful for. Sometimes it’s easier to keep your mouth shut, handle your business, and just fade away. Simple living is all I give a fuck about anymore. Train, keep your head down, keep your mouth shut, and do what you gotta do to simply survive. (via borntosnooze)
This whole 15 hour day thing is not cool right now. I need a day off.
Early breakfast hike + peaking Meeker + cabin duty = I am so tired and grumpy.
But, then the girls in my cabin give me a hug and tell me how great their day was and I feel better. H-9 makes a difference in my life. Love Cheley.
