A few weeks from now, I'll compete in the pinnacle of Natural Bodybuilding, the 2023 Natural Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding Championship. This global, annual event draws thousands of the best bodybuilding champions worldwide. It is a grueling 2-day competition. I would have never thought I would be in this position two years ago, yet here I am. A few weeks ago, I realized that to compete and even win at an Olympic level, you must plan, prepare, and train with an Olympic intensity.
Average and ordinary workouts won't cut it. Compromising on your dieting is a no-no. Excuses for missing a day at the gym will cost you. Anything less than a total Olympic-style commitment and resolute attitude will not yield Olympic results. Here's the thing, however. Many will deceive themselves by thinking they are on track for Olympic-style results while only making amateur efforts. This is the height of delusional thinking. I was falling for this trap until I slapped myself back into reality. I knew I had to step it up if I was expecting Olympic-style results. You need to do the same if you are pursuing similar results or have experience in business, relationships, health, employment, finance, or academics. Get this through your delusional thinking: Amateur efforts will never produce Olympic results. Wish me luck!
