Another solid day of training in the books, with a lighter training day tomorrow rounding out an incredible week. My success this week is due to applied focus on the following: Terrific sleep – 9+ hours / night ✔️ Performance nutrition ✔️ Extensive warm-up prior to training ✔️ Focused areas of development ✔️ Honoring my craft ✔️ – There’s so much more that goes into achieving success than just hard work. We all work hard, in this day and age that’s not enough to separate you from the pack. You need a 360⁰ approach to your craft, whatever it may be, in order to rise above the rest. That’s the table stakes of the uber competitive world we live in today. I’m not saying this to scare you, I’m saying it because I want you to succeed.
