I’ve never been one to talk about myself. I’ve always felt that if you do something worth discussing, others will do the talking for you.. That be... Moreing said I leave you with a piece that I once wrote, a personal mantra if you will, that I feel defines every facet of my existence…


Fear is the most powerful and dominating of all our emotions. Fear will drive us in one of two directions; It will either drive us to our knees in crippling submission, or it will drive us to endure against all odds. In our moments of greatest peril it will reveal a strength and indomitable will which we had no idea we posessed.
A revelation that will forever alter the course of our lives. Fear is something that is unique to each individual. It is not tangible and lives soley within our minds. Fear is self imposed, thusly, fear can be controlled. Fear, like pain is not a true state but rather one of implication. When ones fear is recognized it needs to immediately be addressed and driven to its surrender. Fear is like a small fire and time is like dry wood. If you turn your back on fear and let it fester with time, that fire will grow into an inferno, and before long that fear will blaze with such an intense burning rage it will be uncontrollable. 
Our fear of pain, our fear of discomfort is what drives us to quit long before the body has waved its white flag. Our weak mental state places these pathetic subjective limits upon ourselves allowing us to go through life treading water far below our actual potential. I invite you to step outside of your comfort zone and get comfortable being uncomfortable. 
I urge you to turn a def ear to the voices in your mind screaming for you to yield as fatigue and pain do their very best to place feeble limitations on your willing and able body. Do not let fatigue make you into a coward, do not let a lack of will define your existence. 
You want to be successful in life? Well its showtime, its examination time, its time to get tested,

to test your will, your endurance,its time to test your heart, to test, your….. limits…
