A famous leader once uttered these very words to his troops once as they set out to conquer a foe that vastly outnumbered them in all ways.
As soon as the troops “reached shore” (yes, this was back in the day) they were given orders to – and I’ll quote verbatim – “burn the ships that carried them to said shores”.
In other words – they had NO choice left but to either “win or perish”. Conquer or be conquered. Live or die. Choose whichever metaphor works best for you, but the meaning is the same – they were literally LEFT WITH NO CHOICE whatsoever!
And guess what happened?
As I stated in a blog post a few days ago they did the “unthinkable” and won – and lest you think this is a figment of my imagination – well – think again my friend. EVERY bit of is true – and more to the point, this holds true for YOU as well.
It holds true for YOU in terms of fitness. In terms of LIFE. With regard to successful relationships, or even creating successful businesses. You name the endeavor – and it holds true.
I spoke about imagination and mental pictures as well a post or so ago. If you recall, I spoke about how you can literally use mental pictures to affect PHYSICAL change – and while yes, exercise is required to drop down from a size 42 to a size 28, or to get rid of dem “thunder thighs”, hehe, it all starts with the mental picture you’ve got in mind.
And then you adopt the “win or perish” mentality. And just DO IT.
That’s all there is to it – and in terms of fitness, 0 Excuses Fitness tells you the “how to do it” part, but believe me now and trust me later, it all starts with that dream in mind – plus the win or perish mentality.
The above holds true for any endeavor you choose to partake of in life as well, my friend. See – feel – and watch it happen, including what might seem incredulous or nigh impossible at this stage in your life. It truly does work that way.
Now, naturally, this doesnt mean you start jumping off rooftops in order to “attempt to fly” like some well intention ed but seriously misguided folks did before the airplane was invented. It doesn’t mean those man boobs will just disappear by means of thought alone.
However – bear in mind the airplane DID get invented – and it all started with a dream.
Bear in mind that man boobs – can – have – will – and again, HAVE gone away for many, many people when they adopt a philosophy similar to what I am mentioning above – and again – it all started with a dream plus the “just do it” mentality.
Do or die, I should say, and while fitness goals are obviously NOT meant to be taken to that extreme, I think you get the point I’m trying to make.
And believe me – what currently seemed impossible might well be possible. To quote but one example is the “Mighty Atom” (probably about 150-160 pounds soaking wet) who once flew outside an airplane by his hair alone – and this is a documented fact.
I’ll end with another quote here –
“If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you like to win, but think you can’t, it is almost certain you won’t”
Have a great, wonder- FULL weekend, and ponder what I’ve said above, my friend – it truly is LIFE CHANGING. I’ll touch base again soon.

So don’t delay a second longer, my friend. You owe it to yourself to change your life – and change it for the BETTER.
