That Smile...


Having just returned from The Warrior Classic, an amazingIMG 7239 NPC Competition in Loveland, CO this past weekend I still can’t get That Smile off of my Face and out of my Heart! That Smile that is Unmistakable, That Smile that comes from Deep Inside, That Smile that is Real, That Smile that Changes Lives…


The reason I have That Smile is simple; because I witnessed first hand an entire Team of Athletes with That Smile! I am very fortunate and honored to say that I Coached 13 Competitors on Team 970Muscle who competed in 23 Classes in a large competition with 170 Competitors! You see… That Smile is contagious! Having been alongside with each Competitor throughout their journey made it all that much more special to see them with That Smile on their faces! You know, That Smile when you achieve something that you never thought you were capable of!


When I Coach a Competitor for a Competition, I have 3 Major Goals:


  1. 1.That they are prepared and given every opportunity and tool to succeed.
  2. 2.That they belong on stage.
  3. 3.That they have an AMAZING time that they will remember for a Lifetime!


I can say with confidence that each one of these Goals IMG 7156and then some were achieved by each and every member of Team 970Muscle! Why these 3 Goals you ask? Well ultimately these are what it all should be about, they are what we ultimately have the ability to control, all other things are really up to interpretation to an individual at that particular moment in time! If we give our all and are Proud and Pleased with our results than someone else’s opinion really shouldn’t change ours! In the end remember that it really is That Smile in all that we do that ultimately defines our experience and successes and without that we never really succeed! When you look in the mirror do you see That Smile? When you go to sleep at night do you have That Smile on your face? When you Win, when you Lose… Do you have That Smile? Can you feel That Smile from deep down in your Heart?


            If you have forgotten what it is like to really feel That Smile; It’s time to get it back! Do what you Love, Love what you do, and That Smile WILL be there :)
