There is something about accountability that helps one achieve the goals they set for themselves. With me it has been an essential element to my program. This is why I want to describe to you a goal I've set for myself and how I came to the conclusion that it needed to be done now.
I am a big believer that putting positive pressure on yourself will get you to reach goals you may have fallen short of without the positive pressure. The extra push you get from the positive pressure you gain momentum towards achieving your goals. The problem becomes figuring out what the positive pressure should be for you.
I have often thought about stepping onto a bodybuilding stage. I realized that this was a positive pressure that would help me a lot.
The timing of all this was important to my journey. I was making great progress in my body transformation, but I knew I'd need that extra little push. I work best when I have something to work towards. Getting into bodybuilder shape is something I've always strived to do. That's why I decided now was the right time to get this done. I have got to have a tough, but achieveable goal for myself.
What's the date?
I am going to participate in an NPC show in Culver City on Saturday, April 14, 2012. I plan to win. I know it is going to happen because I have a great trainer (Chris Albert) and a strong drive to succeed. Chris and I make a great team. I enjoy giving him feedback and watching as he goes to work utilizing it to improve the program we are on together. I also cannot argue with the results I've been getting. I can see my goal is now within reach. In just a few months I will be given the first place trophy at my very first competition. I will be in the best shape I've ever been in. I hope you join me along the journey.
