So I put this pic up on my facebook page to show my friends the results of my hard work. I got a few reactions like "wow you look good", "what did you stop doin?", "are you ok???" lol , and my favorite one "maaan you look like the skinny 50 Cent"(from the "Things Fall Apart" movie) lol.
Man, I don't know, but I'm doin' things I NEVER imagined doin' before IN LIFE! First off, I don't work out, I train! @ThePKway got me started and it's been on ever since. He taught me how to push myself and exceed my own expectations. He used to say "Lotto, if you can change your body, you can change anything in your life". I had to respect it. Not only had I seen him transform his body (the way I aspired to do), but I've seen him push himself to do some monumental things in the world of entertainment ( the way I aspire to).
One day he had us run a mile on the treadmill between each exercise. I would put the speed 7.0 so that I could hurry up and knock it out and get my mile out the way. He said "why do you keep stoppin Lotto?". I said, "dude are you serious right now? I got it on 7.0, and I only stopped twice! This IS a mile we talkin' about bra!". I'll never forget my buddy @Ghetovisionary1 turned to me and said "why don't you set your pace at 6.0, something you can keep up with, and make NO STOPS at all....I'm just sayin'",as he turned around,put his headphones back on and walked to the next exercise.
As I slowed the pace down on the treadmill I realized 2 things. First thing, is that this pace was much easier to handle. Not as much stress and agony on my body, at this pace. Second, I realized that this was a life lesson. We are always trying to keep up with the rapid pace of the world,and how things are moving. We wanna hurry up and "get it done",and "knock it out real quick". We are watchin' other's success, and stressing about our own lack of accomplishment, not realizing that we gotta move at our own pace. God got a plan for all of us. That man/woman may have accomplished all of the feats and accolades earlier in life than you did-cool. They may not have as much time to be here as you. That may be the reason that their pace "appears" to be faster. Your journey may take a little longer, but after all, the goal is to finish and get to your destination,right? By the way, I can now run 5 miles without stopping. Imagine what we ALL can get accomplished if we apply this principal to life!
