People Show Us Who They Are

State Of Slay™

We’ve all heard the saying, “talk is cheap,” and I’ve found as I’ve moved forward on my journey that not only is it cheap, it has no value at all without proper action. Just saying something doesn’t make it true, right, or worth anything at all. It’s all in the action. People will tell us what they want us to hear, they will say what they think makes them look good, or to tell the narrative they want to tell, I know, I used to do all of those things, in fact, those were my three top reasons for speaking before taking responsibility for my own well-being and mental health, so I know from first hand experience.

80’s Bodybuilding Rock Star Berry DeMey

The bodybuilding era is known as “the twilight of the golden age of bodybuilding” produced icons of the sport whose popularity still burns to this very day. This show’s co-host notwithstanding, guys such as eight-time Mr. Olympia Lee Haney, Lee Labrada, Gary Strydom, Shawn Ray, Bob Paris, Robby Robinson, Samir Bannout, and their brethren, still draw a crowd due to the indelible mark they left on the sport. One of those guys slid in right after Haney and Rich to place 3rd at 1988, Mr. Olympia. All these years later he’s as full of passion for the sport as he ever was. Yes, I’m talking about “The Flexing Dutchman,” Berry De Mey.

10 Ways to Motivate Yourself

1. Set short-term goals in writing.
2. Short-term goals should lead you to a long-term goal. Allow for occasional
setbacks along the way, but regard them as learning experiences,
thereby, turning those setbacks into a positive.
3. Set a training schedule and stick to it (a good place to find such a training
program is right here in this book).
4. Take pain and fatigue as signs that you are working hard to achieve your
goal, not as negatives.
5. Challenge yourself in training.
6. Devise your own, personal definition of success. It’s what you say it is, not
what someone else says.
7. Believe in yourself and foster positive aggression in your training.
8. Listen to your mentor’s advice and apply it to your workouts.
9. Build strong self-confidence.
10. Take action!
