the iron doesn’t care if your feelings get hurt

In a culture where everyone gets a trophy even if they didn’t win it seems like telling someone the hard truth is almost a thing of the past.

People are very”thin-skinned” these days and easily offended, but if you suck at something then you just do.

It’s just that simple.

If that’s the case then you need to figure how to get better and do the hard work to make it happen.

Last Friday I had one of the worst training sessions I have had in a long time.

You know what, the iron didn’t care one bit.

I saw what I did wrong and started right away correcting it.

You see there is no seniority in progress.

Just because you have been training for so many years doesn’t mean you “deserve” a great workout every time

In fact, it’s just the opposite.

One of my buddies said years ago said some days you’re on, some days you’re off. It is just part of the journey to gettng stronger and more fit.

Train anyways!

If nothting else you get a mental victory for not wussing out.

Some good will always come even from a lousy training session.

I’ve written 2 books about the journey

Be Lifelong Strong

Aging Ruthlessly

Dig in and enjoy!
