If you are feeling like s*** today because I know you do sometimes,because I do. everyone else does. You feel like s*** today.


Go do something for somebody. Do something good. Do something nice.


See the homeless guy on the street. You don’t have any money to give him? Don’t worry.


Go up to him. Look him in the eyes.


“Hey man. How are you? You alright?”


“Hello. Hello. You are there. I acknowledge you.” Sometimes that is enough.


Something like that… is often enough.

Do something. It will come back. It will feel better.


I know it is hard… when you feel you have problems yourself. But when you go do something good for somebody else, it does not need to cost anything. Just a smile. Just give out something positive.


It comes back around.It comes back around.


So, you are helping somebody but you are also helping yourself as well.

This is a powerful message from 6x Mr. Olympia Dorian Yates. He won these titles from 1992 - 1997 and was an iconic bodybuilder in the 1990s.


It is a common thought to continue to achieve and strive towards our dreams. But along the way, there is more to bodybuilding, strength training and powerlifting and lifting weights in general, that the world does not see.
