Delusion Optimism: Some Say I Have It, But I Disagree

Delusion Optimism: Some Say I Have It, But I Disagree

At a young age, I made the decision to dream of a better life. I convinced myself that I was destined for greatness, even though I was living in a trailer that cost $150 per month.

 Through hard work and dedication, I 100% believed that I could achieve anything, including being on the cover of magazines.

As a 175-185 drug-free athlete, this was even more challenging in my industry. I knew I wasn’t going to be the next Mr. Olympia, but I managed to get on 13 magazine covers.

 I was confident that if given the opportunity, I could work with my idol. To make that happen, I had to remain true to myself and trust in my abilities.

 Even when things didn’t go as planned, I always believed I could start over and create something new in an authentic way.

 I love creating content within my job. It’s a part of my DNA. It’s extremely rewarding to make content every day that makes an impact.

 I believe that all things are possible within reason through relentless action. Now, did I think I could beat Arnold at the Olympia? No. But did I think I could be on the cover of magazines and work with him? Yes.

 Seeing and visualizing what’s truly possible for you at the highest level doesn’t make you delusional. It simply comes down to whether or not you’re going to go get it.
