feel sad, repentant, or disappointed over (something that has happened or been done, especially a loss or missed opportunity).
a feeling of sadness, repentance, or disappointment over something that has happened or been done.
There are times in your life where you have to admit that you need help, it's not about failure or not being able to succeed at certain things but asking for assistance to achieve something much greater than you can accomplish on your own.
In October I decided to reach out for help, and I went to the one person I knew could bring the best out of me, Michael Wright.
Our relationship started over nutrition and evolved into him training me, although I have been a personal trainer for over 12 years I had and still have the same mental approach, let him teach me from the beginning, listen to everything that he has to say, apply each method and teaching and give everything that I have, every single time.
So far he has taught me more than I ever would have imagined, he has offered support and encouragement and will never slow down as he trains me, it is this dedication that makes him the best at what he does, I look up to him as a mentor and friend.
2 weeks ago I had a leg session with Michael which brought the idea of this blog, to say that the workout was intense is definitely an understatement.....I can say that within 10 minutes I was fried but he helped me push past my comfort zone, Mike even had some of the members of his gym, Quads in Keller TX, to come help me and encourage me to get through it, which is not only why Mike is the best, but he has the best gym around. Towards the end of the session I could barely stand and I noticed that he was talking with my wife, not knowing what they were saying I pushed past the pain and finished the workout.
What did he say that brought everything back to perspective?
He was talking about the fact that when it comes my time to get back on the stage I won't be thinking about this particular workout, I won't be thinking of the pain, the loss of breath, the struggle and the strain that it puts on me, but rather the opposite, he said how I will have "NO REGRETS" when I am on stage, how I know that I have put everything that I have into the journey, how I pushed myself beyond what I thought capable and did what was necessary to get the job done. When I heard this it hit me like a brick to the side of the head, this guy believes in ME!
Funny how I never would have thought he would. Funny how while thinking this it was the opposite, I didn't believe in myself. Funny how I teach, preach, and stand by my own word of believing in each client's struggle while giving my undeniable support to them I was going through the same struggle that they go through...
So with this teaching that I learned, I ask each of you something, do you believe in yourself? Take a good look at what you have accomplished so far, take a look in the mirror and as yourself if you have regrets, ask yourself if you have reached your limit or are you just starting to accomplish something that you never thought possible? I can tell you from experience that you have so much more to accomplish, you can do so much more than what you currently are doing, just believe in yourself, trust your trainer and go out there and do the work! I believe in each of you, just like I believe in myself now.
