A Strong Mind Starts With A Strong Body

Becoming a monster is part of the process.

In this video, Jordan Peterson, Jocko Willink, Chris Ross, and Coach Pain Mat Wilson define the path we as men must take.

Don’t compare yourself with others.

Don’t compare yourself with others!

  • Focus on your own progress. Don’t worry about what other people are doing, just focus on your own progress.
  • There will always be someone who is in better shape than you and someone who is less fit than you, so don’t get down by looking at them.

Think longterm

Don’t focus on the short term and neglect the long term. The goal is to be fit and healthy, not merely to lose some weight in the next month or two. Think about how you’re going to feel when you’re older than your current age, and keep that image in mind as motivation when you hit a plateau or start losing momentum with your training.

Think about what getting fit will mean for your future self: You’ll be able to spend more time with friends and family; you’ll have more energy for doing things that interest you; if nothing else, it will make it easier for people who love you now (and those who may come into your life someday) to enjoy being around someone who’s not always exhausted from being out of shape!

You’re training not just for yourself but also for other people: family members who are counting on their healthiest years ahead of them; children whose lives will be better because they grow up seeing an active role model instead of one who spends most days sitting around feeling sorry for himself/herself

Take small steps, achieve big results

You’ve probably heard this phrase before. It conveys that if you take baby steps toward your goals, they will be achievable in the end. It’s true! Don’t get discouraged if progress is slow at first and don’t expect to reach your goal overnight.

Take it from me: In my 20s and early 30s I was a couch potato who never exercised and ate poorly most days. It wasn’t until later in life when I decided that I had to make some changes for my health’s sake that things started to happen for me.

And guess what? Once I began working out regularly and eating better, it was easy to stay motivated because my body was responding! Nowadays as a coach, and business owner, I’m an activist/advocate against the dogma that as we age we are destined to get fat, tired and our testosterone fall. I’m living proof that taking small steps towards achieving bigger goals is possible!

Don’t ignore hormones like testosterone.

Don’t ignore hormones like testosterone.

Testosterone is a hormone that is important for muscle building, and it is affected by diet, lifestyle and training. It’s also impacted by stress levels, so if you’re stressed out, your testosterone levels will drop. You might think that this would make you feel better (less anxious), but in fact it has the opposite effect: low testosterone makes people more likely to feel depressed and tired.

So what does this mean for your workout? Well, if you’re feeling down or unmotivated because of low testosterone levels, you can naturally boost testosterone back to optimal levels. It just takes time.

There are things you can do to motivate yourself to keep going.

  • Don’t compare yourself to others.
  • Think longterm, not short-term.
  • Take small steps towards a big goal and achieve it!
  • Don’t ignore your hormones: testosterone can give you an edge to build muscle and strengthen your inner beast.

Final Thoughts.

I hope this post has given you some motivation to go out there and work on your inner beast! Remember, it doesn’t matter where you start from—or how much time it takes—the important thing is that you keep fucking going.
