The year 2018 is the mark of 1st wedding anniversary with my beautiful wife, Patrissa. One thing I learn in married life, there is no more you and I. There is only us. How did we do it?

When I was a student at the university, it is easier to be consistent with my workout program. It was lots of learning and trial and error to find the sweet spot of fitness. I had tried body-building, running, obstacle course racing and finally I found powerlifting. I was all in into Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. After I graduated, I begin to work. I have to say the work is demanding. At times, I need to work late and out of a business trip. It workout routine was all mess up.

Then, I got married to my beautiful wife, Patrissa. Best moment ever! This situation adds expectation to manage. That is the beauty of life! Full of surprise with the roller coaster of up and down. It is very exciting. Throughout the exciting life of up and down, I never forget about my fitness goal. The year 2017 was about Spartan Race. I have completed 2 Spartan Trifecta last year.

Here is the big question.

Spartan Race is an obstacles race. The Spartan Race is not soft. The Spartan Race is for the gritty. The Spartan Race is for the strong-willed. The Spartan Race is for everyone! I have been running the Spartan Race for six times already. I completed the Spartan Sprint, Spartan Super, and the Spartan Beast. For me, the Spartan Race is a great platform to train your body which has a direct correlation to the mind. Spartan Race will sharpen your mind that any obstacle can be overcome. A stronger body, a stronger mind. All you need to do is just do!

Have you ever googled motivational quote, just to motivate yourselves to do something? I know I did. We want to feel something which is the drive to get things done.  Sam Levenson said, “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.”

Do you really feel motivated? Yes, for a second. If you really really ponder, the motivational quotes are really just facts! Check out a quote from Michael Phelps’

There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.

Again, the so call motivational quotes are actually facts of success. Only the people that are hardworking, persevere, hustle, grind and show grit will be successful. All it takes is action to make things happen. That is the only facts that will lead you to greatness.

They are two kinds of people. The first kind of people will say “I’m going to wait until I feel motivated.” The second kind of people will say “I’m going to do it because it is the facts of success.” The first one will never get anything done because he still waiting and waiting to feel motivated and not do anything about it. The other person will do first to live up to the facts of success. Which one do you want to be?

Every time you read motivational quotes, tell yourselves that it is the facts of success. If you intentionally do not live up the facts of success, you are unintentionally living up the facts of failure. Always live up to the facts of success! That is the only path to greatness.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
