Default For the Bearded One.................

You are getting close to head out to your meet soon..brother....

We all wish you well, may you personally prosper and do well...

When you stand still, you reject the struggle, and you refuse to change and grow. Ultimately, you reject fulfillment, happiness, the dance for joy and everything else that is eternally (and internally) good.

(Unknown)

You do not stand still, BTB, you are standing and delivering...

You are changing yourself and growing, BTB. ROCK IT!

Perspiration.....spawns inspiration.
Ends frustration.
And, forms a new self-creation.

What is one way to interpret this quote?

Let's Chill-heck-out and find out:


Action is the only way anything ever gets done.

You got tha' action going on, BTB!

A brand new self-created person will be created the day of the meet. ROCK-ON!

You are motivated in moven' it. Grooven' it........Leaving nothing to chance. You are getting it done.

You have your act together, BTB!

Look at what you have done, and look what you WILL DO.

Adversity bows to your passion.

our passion cries.

Adversity dies.

Your heart is the right size.

Grab your prize: New PR's and a fantastic meet, and a new champion!



You ROCK ON....THUNDER! The ground in which you walk!





You will do well, my friend.





Don

Default A tribute, the big Bearded one!

A Tribute to your success

Success isn't built upon spontaneous combustion; You must set yourself on fire

Neither fire nor wind, thunder storms, nor heat of the sun, will whither the fire within my spirit nor the heart to keep me near it.

(unknown)

================================================== ========

BTB: Keep searching for the vitamins of the heart and spirit.

Your heart, your soul, and your whole being are behind every decision you make, the words from your mouth are full, and each action you take are meaningful. Truth and confidence are the roots of your happiness.


(Chillen)
===============================================
How WE see YOU:

The path that you lead is lighted by one fire - the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain.

(Helena Petrova Blavatsky)

There is a light that shines beyond all things on earth. It forms a spirit of a young man that cannot be broken, and shines beyond the highest mountain peak. This light comes from the young man's heart and penetrates the heavens. It never dims.

(Chillen)

Fate (PHATE):

P--Personal Power
H--Heart
A--Attitude
T--Truth
E--Endurance

You have all these attributes, big guy!
==============================================

Personal Power:

Refuse to be ordinary. Let your heart soar as high as it will.

Heart:

As you grow, may your mind stay in sync with your heart.

Like seeds, the heart has to be open in order to grow and prosper.

It is not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them -your integrity, the heart, generous qualities, interactive ideas.

You possess these attributes and more, young man.

Being what you want to be in life is something proven and given by action. You can be anything you want.

(Chillen)


Attitude:

Attitude is everything. Life has a way of providing us with whatever we're expecting it to provide, whether positive or negative. How we approach each day, our attitude, makes all the difference in how we experience life and in how well we respond to life's challenges.

You have the all the internal fruits within your personal attributes to build good roots and I salute your pursuit. May a good attitude always be at your side as an asset to your intelligence.

(Chillen)


Truth:

May you always keep your perceptions untainted and open to clearly see. May you NEVER look through stained glass; this will enable you to see your personal class.

Never suffer the prejudice of the eye to determine the heart.

(Johann Georg Zimmermann)

Endurance

You possess the features and qualities to pull your spirit and heart within you to take a stand where everyone else has fallen and this endurance will spark the fire in you crowning your passions in life.

(Chillen)


Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.

(Shaquille Oneal)

================================================== ========


May you always build your character with spirit and heart, as you approach your meet. May this pursuit be relentless yet very fruitful, and fill you with much joy and happiness within fitness and in life.


As always, I wish you the best in all that you do,

You determine, your PHATE, my brother.


Don

Thank you for this Don. There is still a lot of doubt in my mind, and every little muscle twinge hints that it wants to be my undoing, but I'm going to do my best.

Boss, you are welcome. I admire your accomplishments in the power lifting profession, and respect what you do here, and respect you. With working toward my own personal goals through the years, I know the amount of work and dedication you have to put in to get at the level you are currently at.

You will do well, those twinges, are just muscles itching to get busy and show who is the boss!

You were engineered for success (your consistency), designed for accomplishment (your training regime), and endowed with the seeds of greatness (doing well and kicken dat' @ss at the meet).


You will do well.


Don

Steve,

no one else signed you up for this.....YOU did

no one else put you in this position.....YOU did

No one else prepared you for this opportunity.....YOU did

You train SMART, you train HARD, you train CONSISTENTLY.

I will not wish you luck, because luck has NOTHING to do with it....I do NOT believe in luck...

I believe in PREPARATION meets OPPORTUNITY

You are PREPARED
This is your OPPORTUNITY

Forget everything else, and fucking C R U S H I T ! ! ! !

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
