Was watching some amazing stuff on YouTube the other day – animal videos, to be specific, and something that surprised me no end (and was new to me as well) was a video I saw someplace of a pit bull taking a massive – yes, you guessed it – actual BULL down.
No kidding, folks.
The pit bull literally jumped on to the bull – and grabbed it by the nose – and try as it might, the bull couldn’t shake it off.
It ended up with the bull on the floor “submitting”, and the video cuts off there, so I’m not sure what happened next, but though courage, valor and other terms might come to mind here – the first term that came to mind for me was this – TENACIOUSNESS.
Reminded me of the good ole “Rumble in the Jungle” fight between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, and while the “why’s and wherefore’s” of that epic battle are widely contested (i.e. the “rope a dope” controversy and so forth), Foreman has admitted in the past that it was big mistake to underestimate Ali.
“The mistake of a lifetime”, as he puts it.
The actual fight again was one where Ali took the worst of it seemingly. Body blow after body blow landed, but Ali hung in there – tenacious as a pit bull might be, and started to take full toll after the heavy shots tired Foreman out.
Much like the battle in the epic movie Rocky (the initial one) where Rocky hangs in there until … well, we all know, I’m sure, hehe.
Anyway, there’s a lesson to be learnt here, folks.
You don’t have to be in a fight – or be a pitbull – or win a boxing bout to know that tenaciousness is something that we could ALL use a little – or a LOT of.
And it’s a quality sorely lacking in most modern day men.
Most modern day men – or folks in general, I should say give up at the slightest hint of “hard work lies ahead” or the tiniest roadblock.
It’s sad, because this one quality gives us the ability to get the most out of life – and master what life throws at us – with vim, vigor and gusto.
Think about it. How many times has life thrown a curveball of any sort at you – and how many times have you tackled it tenaciously, never willing to give up?
This quality is one of the many you’ll develop when you follow my exercise routines and programs.
Those that have bought the 0 Excuses Fitness System have said that the video and instruction are just like me i.e. brutally honest. Frank. Down to earth. Those are some of the comments I’ve received, and does it work?
Oh yes – it DOES – if you LET the routines work.
If you actually DO – and are tenacious enough to hang in there to experience the benefits of said routines.
Trust me, my programs develop a level of tenaciousness in you that you will NOT get by following your average toning routine at the gym – or pounding the pavement – or getting your shoulders massaged by your personal trainer (ugh!) while lifting pink dumbbells.
No sirreeee … and anyone that’s mastered the 100 pull-up challenge I talk about in Pull-ups – from DUD to STUD within a few weeks KNOWS what I’m talking about.
The routines may not be fancy. They sure as heck ain’t “purdy” and “gussied up” (for y’all from the South reading this, hehe).
But do they WORK?
Do they build GUMPTION – CHARACTER – and most of all, tenacity?
Heck yes – and again, anyone that’s gotten to a level where they can pound out 500 pushups a day and keep at it a while KNOWS what I’m talking about.
So if you’re looking to build qualities that will help you succeed in the game of life as well while building the body of your dreams – – well – – look no further, my friend. Invest in the System today, and reap the rewards for your entire life.
P.S. – If you’re looking to get better at pull-ups and chances are you ARE (most folks are unable to do pull-ups at all, let alone do ’em RIGHT) – then THIS is the perfect start for you – – http://0excusesfitness.com/pull-ups-from-dud-to-stud-within-a-matter-of-weeks/. And not to worry – we’ve got progressions beyond THIS as well! Baby steps though, my friend. Baby steps …
