Capitalize on Vengeance

I'm not sure how many of you view me. It may come as a surprise to you that deep within me is a very vindictive person. Injustice has always boiled my blood. It bothers me so much that I can't stand to hear about it, otherwise it consumes me.

I don't want to get on here to grand stand on a political stance. There's plenty of that going around. Instead I'd like to discuss how that boiling rage can benefit you.

There are two ways to take the words "you're not good enough." You can either let it crush you, or be a means to springboard you forward. 

"I'll show you..."

If you haven't whispered these words in a fitted rage, you're letting the weight of rejection crush you. 

I've received more than my fair share of rejection in my limited time on earth. It's a regular part of being an actor/singer. But even those of you who have no interest in the stage can understand what it's like to not get a job, to get turned down by the "pretty gal" in school, or to just lose.

These are trials. We all face them. You're not unique in this regard. How you face them is what defines you.

There is nothing that replicates trials. However training is nothing more that scheduled, controlled trials. So, yes, in a way it's a replication, but training in itself is a trail. It does affect the central nervous system after all. 

"Rip the head off a goddamn lion."

This should be your thought process when training. This is your moment to fight back. You won't go to jail for putting some weights in the ground, getting pissed and throwing all of your blind hatred into a set of dumbbells. In fact, If you do it right, you'll come back from this venture a stronger, leaner, sexier S.O.B. If you're unsure of how to begin, get my Beginner Gym and Diet Program.

The Point is to take that stupid rejection and self doubt and tell it to "Shove it." Put that energy into the weights, in the weight room, in the temple of self advancement. If you want to prove someone wrong, do it with your walking billboard. Someone thinks you're not good enough, prove them wrong. Show them.

Until next time,

Lift Big, Sing Big, and Look Great Doing It.
