I strive to be someone who represents positive change. To be someone who fosters a positive environment. My daily execution, strategy, push, self-education, and visualization for the future. All of it.
That’s what we’re creating here with the #IWANTABS Transformation contest. That’s what we’ve been creating over the past year with changes in our business and building our new headquarters. I’m going to do everything I can in order continue representing positive change. I encourage you to do the same. You never know who you may impact.
Daily Fires, The Roundtable Podcast, The Coaches Clinic, or wherever you draw inspiration… it doesn’t matter. What does matter is taking responsibility with sharing that valuable content with the next person. I take great pride with my responsibility to lead our business – at CoryG Fitness and Max Effort Muscle. I’m determined to put out daily content to lead the charge for positive change.
I have an old picture of me looking at my old car through my trailer window. I’m so happy that I took that picture because it is burned into my mind. I’m 19 years old, looking out the window at my car and desperately wanting things to change. I can see it so clearly.
That’s why I show major love for people like Zach Collaros. He’s a two-time Grey Cup Champion in the CFL that’s representing the Ohio Valley. I wanted to be the person that represented positive change from the Valley. Someone who left the area, did what they wanted to do, and built something successful. Someone who could potentially be someone’s inspiration.
Man in the Arena
It’s like how Jordan talks about playing defense. Why wouldn’t he play hard defense every night? Why would he not go and try to score? Why would he not take a day off? The reason why he wouldn't take a day off is because somebody was in the nosebleeds that day that could barely afford that ticket, and they came to watch Michael Jordan.
If people are watching my content for the first time, I want them to know that I thought about my responsibility to be an impactful person. It could be with the things I’ve accomplished in my life or career, or where I’m from. I take this role seriously because I didn’t have a person or role model that I could turn to growing up. There was no one in the valley that did what I wanted to do.
I’m going to continue to work hard. I’m going to continue to push and showcase what it takes to win. What you must go through and what’s possible. This isn’t some fake, inauthentic, dream bullshit. I’m talking about the compounded effect of hard work and action. All that’s left is believing that you can do it.
Are you going to develop a strategy? Are you going to take action? Are you going to do the small things that you may not want to do every day? Are you going to execute?
You're not entitled to a timeframe. It's probably not going to happen as fast as you want it to, but if you stay the course, it most likely will happen. It all starts with a concept or an idea. The question is, “What are you going to do with it?”
