If there was only one thing I could say before I die - it would be the same thing.
Don’t let the world define success and failure for you.
In class 10th, basis our marks, the world decides our success. The supposed smart ones go to science!
Post 12th, the college we get in to defines our success.
Post college, the job we get, the salary we get, the title we get, defines our success.
The age we marry, whether we marry, whether we have kids, which school we send them to, where we vacation, which car we drive and which phone we use. All of it defines our success.
Success as defined by the world. .
Makes you ask - are we even living our own life? Or a life defined by someone else’s definition. .
Me and my mom got into a argument because I got back in the house at 8:30 from working out with my coach and she said you ain’t playing no more football and I said yes I am this is my senior year of high school after this year I could possibly be hanging up the cleats if I don’t pull a miracle she replied with “you ain’t going to the 12th grade your staying back you dumb bitch” that shit hit hard cuz she’s always trying to compare me to my sister who goes to college in one of the best performing arts schools in the country with scholarship money and I’m just too fucking stupid to even come close to what she’s doing I really been having thoughts of just dropping out and hope I pull a miracle on YouTube because that’s where my life is headed honestly I feel like my mother doesn’t give af about me she chooses everybody’s side but mines, her own child she puts her boyfriend she knew a few years vs her son she knew for 16 before me about everything she only looks at my mistakes and when I accomplish something I’m there by myself with nobody to congratulate me then she wanna talk about “support” At this point I feel as if she don’t gaf if I live or die fr🚮 how can you sit in your child’s face and say such hatred things I wouldn’t even say to a random person on the street that’s not even half of it💔 #Failure#Mistake
Don’t stay helpless. We all hit moments when we feel helpless. The test is how we react to that feeling. We can either learn from it and move forward or let it drag us down. There are countless successful people who would have never made it if they had succumbed to feelings of helplessness: Walt Disney was fired from the Kansas City Star because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas,” Oprah Winfrey was fired from her job as a TV anchor in Baltimore for being “too emotionally invested in her stories.” Be passionate. Empowered people pursue their passions relentlessly. Don't complain when things don't go your way. Instead look for opportunity in everything, so there’s no room for complaints. Empower yourself by giving it your all, even on your worst days. Push yourself to go the extra mile when things aren’t going your way! #optimissm#beanoptimist#striveformore
🏆success is not final nd failure 👎 is not fatal.. So don't be afraid to fail.. Be afraid not to try. Because..through that try only ur failure become a success.. That thought of trying comes when u have "HOPE✨" in ur life.. Don't lose hope.. Bcoz we never know what the next moment bring.. 😊
Keep showing up.
Be brave and push through.
Every step of the way you will experience “failures” and they are pointing us in a different direction, to our wins and our true potential.
We need those failures to strengthen us, and teach us the skills we need to step up and be the person we need to be, to have the things we want to have.
Keep trying. #yougotthis

So I literally almost didn’t post this video due my my epic filming failure of cutting my head off in most of the exercises, but then I thought 💭 about. I realized I was making an excuse and thought my failure too funny not to share. So I hope you get a good ab work out in from laughing at what looks like my headless body getting in a leg day.
Let’s stop making excuses and allowing fear to dictate our actions.
Only I can control my decisions and I refuse to allow fear to stop me. There’s my nice little affirmation to myself! Now let’s get it!🔥 * Resistance Band Glute Activation 3x8 each side [Tip: Really focus your mind on your glute muscles]
* Leg Press Wide Stance 4x8
* Leg Press Narrow Stance 4x8

🧠You must know that when you fail from the beginning, you’re actually throwing away all the goodness from whatever success you were about to experience, so, the more you fail, the more you learn, then the more you’re able to execute and start succeeding.
We’re never too old to play, right? Especially when it comes to playing with alcohol.🤗
Do you know how hard it is to make a video with your phone in your hand while blowing the air out of your lungs?
Anyway, this is a project I quickly abandoned. Too much alcohol involved.
Ignore the haters and the doubters, they have no idea what you have gone through to get here or the road you had to walk.⠀
As the great intellectual American poet, DMX once said...⠀
"Look thru my eyes, see what I see,⠀
Do as I do, be what I be,⠀
Walk in my shoes, hurt your feet"⠀
People only see what they want to see, and ignore the rest.⠀
But understand, it is not their fault. People come into your life either for a reason or a season. When you figure out which one it is, you will know what to do for each person.⠀
People will come and go, but stay true to your own path.⠀
Even if people don't support you, go in the direction that makes sense to you. Accept where you are and focus on what you have to do to move forward.⠀
So celebrate the success of your peers. Encourage the success of your friends. And always focus on making consistent daily steps forward.⠀
Be patient. For the best is yet to be!

Failure is the path to success
No one who has had great success, has been without failure. Success is just a numbers game. The more repetitions you put into practice, the better your chances are at coming out on top. You cannot improve without having failed.
Failure is one of life’s greatest teachers. When you understand what was missed, you can then change the way it is performed. Making minor changes and executing those changes, allows us to become more focused on what is going right over what is going wrong. To do the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result is called insanity.
Not understanding failure can be scary, but you have the capacity to change your mentality and look at failure with keener eyes. You will have the courage and confidence to stand up and try again, because you will know failure is not final. Instead, you will see that failure is the path to success.
