Are you happy?

As a whole, I think this past week of training has been one of the most satisfying and productive of my “career”. Every workout was memorable, several personal records were broken and after each workout I walked out of the gym knowing I put everything I had into each rep. Nothing – and I do mean nothing – compares to the feeling.

Before my transformation I relied on drugs to feel good, but any pleasant feelings that those drugs provided were fleeting and hollow. Like everyone else, I’ve got concerns, worries, problems and stress in my life, yet I am usually able to walk around above all that stuff. I’m not saying that I am unaffected by it all; what I’m saying is that hard work and self discipline have their rewards, and those rewards run far deeper than having a “good” body. As I mentioned in yesterday’s update, eating right, getting plenty of rest and training hard are the things that provide me with a rock-solid foundation for the rest of my life. I truly believe that those three things are the “secrets” as to why I’m genuinely happy with my life right now.

I’m nearly 39 years old, and I was just reading the other day that statically speaking this is the age when many men are at the lowest point in their lives. I don’t think it has to be that way. Face facts: time marches on, we get old, we die – no exceptions. You can dwell on that sobering reality, or you can squeeze every last drop of life out of the time you have been given.
