When I was a lot younger. Around Chloe‘s age, my father started a business. He bought a shed in the small town of Guyra NSW. Moving from Brisbane to settle in the town. With a total population Of roughly 2000 People. He bought the shed to run a agriculture supply business. Mixing grain, cleaning potato’s and supplying farmers with what they needed. This work made the place dirty.
It was my siblings and I lovely task to sweep this shed, around 400 sqm of it. Also to load and unload trucks. Serve customers and help with any task we could. At the time I wasn’t a fan of it. However Dad and Mum were teaching myself and my brother and sister a lesson that words couldn’t of done. Just actions. This made it all worth it. The stop at the pie shop on the way home did help too haha.
Like boxing, words mean nothing. Only action. Some lessons arn't taught directly by me but through experiences you go through. Example. I may give you a simple task. Like sweeping. It is not the task itself that I am looking at. It is sometimes how you perform the task. How long you can concentrate on the task. Are you willing to do the task day in day out.
Like Muhammad Ali said
”Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill”.
Muhammad Ali Hopefully I can do the same as my dad did with Chloe. And hopefully you also learn each time you are in the gym. Wether through me or from yourself and what you can really do.
PS. Stop being a little b#tch and get stuck in. Thanks.
