Default Speaking of Grimek

From Brooks kubik's Blog...
Dinosaur Training

Speaking of Grimek -- a funny story.

I told you yesterday that he started training
with his older brother's barbell set.

This was after his older brother had moved
away to work an out of town job.

So John had the barbell and the Milo courses
that came with it, but no one to instruct him.

He read the course and started training.

He read that you were supposed to add reps
and then add weight and reduce the reps and
start over again.

But he missed the part about training three
times per week!

So there he was, hitting it hard and heavy,
and training EVERY DAY and trying to do more
and more every time he trained.

After three weeks of this, he had bags under
his eyes bigger than he was!

Luckily, his brother came back home for the
weekend and set him straight -- and once he
started training, he started to make some
progress.

So everyone, it seems, gets it wrong at the
beginning -- even the ones who go on to become
Iron Game legends

Yes they do.

I make mistakes everyday. Forget things, misinterpret things. Sometimes I make posts that I regret because I realize I was wrong, or missed something important.

Someone once told me when you look at a person, you have 2 options:

1) See what they can become.
2) See only their weaknesses and current flaws.

If any of you ever think my encouragement is forced, or simply a courtesy, you're wrong. I started lifting with very little in my corner. In 2 weeks I will have an opportunity to hit the top 2012 American Masters Raw total for my weight class.

I look in the mirror everyday thinking there is no way I should be doing this. But I am, and so can you.

Believe.

Quiet Strength: Live some. Love some. Learn some


First, life is worthwhile if you LEARN. What you don't know WILL hurt you. You have to have learning to exist, let alone succeed. Life is worthwhile if you learn from your own experiences, negative and positive. We learn to do it right by first sometimes doing it wrong. We call that a positive negative. We also learn from other people's experiences, both positive and negative. I've always said it is too bad failures don't give seminars. We don't want to pay them so they don't tour around giving seminars. But the information would be very valuable how someone who had it all, messed it up. Learning from other people's experiences and mistakes.

We learn by what we see - pay attention. By what we hear be a good listener. Now I do suggest being a selective listener, don't just let anybody dump into your mental factory. We learn from what we read. Learn from every source. Learn from lectures, learn from songs, learn from sermons, learn from conversations with people who care. Keep learning.

Life is worthwhile if you TRY. You can't just learn; you now have to try something to see if you can do it. Try to make a difference, try to make some progress, try to learn a new skill, try to learn a new sport. Life is worthwhile if you try. It doesn't mean you can do everything but there are a lot of things you can do, if you just try. Try your best. Give it every effort. Why not go all out?

Life is worthwhile if you STAY. You have to stay from spring until harvest. If you have signed up for the day or for the game or for the project - see it through. Sometimes calamity comes and then it is worth wrapping it up. And that's the end, but just don't end in the middle. Maybe on the next project you pass, but on this one, if you signed up, see it through.

Life is worthwhile if you CARE. If you care at all you will get some results, if you care enough you can get incredible results. Care enough to make a difference. Care enough to turn somebody around. Care enough to start a new enterprise. Care enough to change it all. Care enough to be the highest producer. Care enough to set some records. Care enough to win.


Have a great day, Maber's peace and happiness to you.
