Should Athletes Be Idolized?

June 6, 2015

Today I’m ready to stir up some controversy, so without further ado do you think athletes should be or deserve to be idolized? Now this is a difficult question to take on because of the different types of athletes out there.

For now let’s just stick to professional athletes in all sports known to man. We believe that some do deserve recognition and some don’t. For example, lets take a classic legend like Michael Jordan who broke numerous NBA records and will go down in history. His talents are undeniable and his off the court persona in general is solid, and therefore, is a great roll model for aspiring basketball players. However, let’s take Terrell Owens as another example who on paper is a NFL icon, but his on and off the field character is absolute insanity. He has a reputation for being cocky, showing off, flaunting money, and participating in addictive behaviors that shouldn’t be idolized. I’m not denying he was a great football player but just because he can a pass shouldn’t constitute him as a roll model.

I already know people are going to disagree with me, and that’s fine, but I believe athletes should encompass good character on and off the field to deserve to be idolized. It’s frustrating to watch young athletes look up to people that don’t deserve it all. The problem is when people look up to athletes that participate in poor behavior it spreads a message that is okay. It’s absolutely 100% not okay and shouldn’t be tolerated as it affects a mass of people. read more

Put In The Time & You Won’t Stink

May 29, 2015

Hey guys I’m back and ready to provide you with more info. that you hopefully find useful. So lets get into it.

Over the years we have all heard people complaining about their current situation and how they’re stuck. The realty is that no one is truly stuck in their current endeavor. It doesn’t matter if you’re stuck in a job or aren’t physically where you want to be, if you want something bad enough you’ll go out and make it happen! Put in the time, the long hours, make sacrifices and I guarantee you’ll find yourself at the top.

Now with that said, the people at the bottom love to make excuses for themselves and flat out lie. They aren’t truthful with themselves, which is absolutely crazy, and never have the type of success in life that they’re looking for. Don’t be one of these people, if you can’t be honest with yourself, who can you be honest with? Self evaluation is critical to achieving anything in life and sometimes it’s not a fun process. But I promise you if you’re willing to take the time to truly understand why you haven’t made it you’ll discover the path to success.

It’s pretty straightforward, the more time you work on yourself mentally or physically the better you’ll be at your craft. Whether it’s spending day in and day out at the gym to obtain the ultimate physique, or reading book after book the juice is worth the squeeze. However, when it comes to the gym I would make sure you have fresh clothes everyday….. otherwise you may  turn your home into a torture chamber of horrific filth. I’m only telling you this because my buddy at http://www.sanluisobispocarpetcleaning.org hates me because of how often I have to call him to clean my home. At least he’s a buddy so it’s free. read more
