There’s a dark secret that destroys many KB workouts and the
results that should be yours from doing them.
Do you know what it is?
First, a question:
Have you ever watched any of the Star Wars movies?
Repeatedly. Especially the first 3 – Episodes 1,2, and 3
not so much.
In “Empire Strikes Back,” Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker are
having a light saber duel in the Cloud City.
Darth Vader cuts off Luke’s hand and the dialogue about Luke’s
Long and short of it, Vader tells Luke that he is his father.
Luke of course rejects it outright, and then Darth Vader says
“Search your feelings. You know it to be true.”
There’s the “dark secret” I was alluding to.
Many times our workouts get done or don’t get done based on
our feelings – how we’re feeling at that moment in time –
– feelings about our workouts
– feelings about ourselves
– feelings about our circumstances
– feelings about others
Etc, etc, etc…
If you read Sunday’s email, I made a bold statement that you may
“Divorce your emotions from you actions.”
Just because you “feel” something doesn’t make it true, despite
what modern pop culture would have you believe.
Case in point:
You could “feel” like your significant other is mad at you and
could build up all sorts of junk in your head.
If you never ask him/her you’d never know for sure.
Or worse yet –
You could “feel” like you could fly.
Trying to do so with out an attachable tool like a plane, hang
glider, parachute, etc, will only end in tragedy.
So put this whole “feelings” thing aside when it comes to your
This isn’t “Oprah” or “Dr Phil.”
And the Force is fake.
At the end of the day, no one cares about your feelings and you
It’s just you and your kettlebells.
They’re either going to sit there and collect dust or they’re not.
You’re either going to have “reasons” (excuses) why you didn’t
get your workouts done or you’re going to have a healthy, strong,
lean, well-conditioned body.
There is no middle ground.
To stay on our Star Wars theme, Yoda was right –
“Do or do not. There is no try.”
Instead, walk by faith – pick your goal and take steps to get it
done – and here’s what most of today’s “touchy-feely” world misses –
KEEP walking until you reach your goal.
No matter how long it takes.
Keep the vision in the forefront of your mind’s eye.
And just keep on keeping on – regardless of what you “feel” –
One step at a time.
Speaking of “one step at a time” –
“Kettlebell STRONG!” is an excuse-free, emotion-free, guaranteed
path to strength using a pair of kettlebells.
The entire program is laid out for you step-by-step-by-step-by
-step. All you have to do to get as strong as you want is walk –
follow each step.
