This isn't surprising with a quality and tough minded individual like, Steve.

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; Steve has worked hard to accomplish what he wants, and deserves this opportunity to excel in what strums his heart strings.

“Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside of them was superior to circumstances” (Bruce Barton)

Interpretation:

By Steve working hard in the gym, consistently, and preparing for this meet, it will allow him to be superior than they weight represented on the bar. Thus he is superior to his present circumstances, because he was superior in the circumstances while training in the gym.

Steve works out his personal weaknesses in the gym, and turns these weaknesses in the gym into strengths on the floor of the meet. Steve knows the truth, and it sets him free to accomplish what he wants.

Manage brings advantage, while mismanage brings disadvantage.

He has the advantage at this meet, because Steve manages preparation.

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

You deserve a smile today, Steve. So happy for you. So I made this rather stupid rhyme, that still has a meaning:

I hope you had a great day;

I pray all of your power was on display, and
there was no decay in the head buffet to cause personal dismay.

Everyday grind away at any decay in the head buffet, put the power on display and you will have a great day!(Chillen)

================================================== =======
We all love and respect Steve. And with Mab by his side, and with this motto in which we stand for:

What is not within me is within WE and when I allow there to be a WE, there is so much more potential within ME!

Yes, we are a team behind Steve, and he gets so much more inside himself for it. Mab beats in his heart, and because of this internal team, he will win this meet.

And, this is what it is about.
================================================== =======

You see, MaB brothers and Sisters, Steve has one major trait that's akin to a postage stamp.

Its the ability to stick to one thing until he gets to the destination.

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

Fellow Mabers do not worry about Steve, he will do well, because his will is permanent and unbreakable, his mind is geared, equipped and primed.

And, he will represent MaB with amazing, unparalleled strength.

There is no doubt.


Much peace and happiness to you Steve.


Chillen

Looks like the Big Dogg is showing us all how it's done! Proud of you Big Bossman and it's awesome to see you representing the best of us with passion and determination.



Now that's out the way, back to belittling everyone else's thread...

Thanks Hazz, I appreciate it. Guys like you motivate me, and keep me driven.

And didn't know you were belittling others.
