Success is not based on genetics, nor on the height, size of your biceps or, how nice your car is. If you’re out there thinking “I can’t amount to anything noteworthy or “ I wish I had those genetics” then you my friend are restricting more kinds of growth than you realize! Whether you are looking to improve your body composition or better your life financially it all begins with a conscious decision to commit to a plan of action. Committing creates a pathway for personal development. Sharpen your mind and focus on the long road ahead, I encourage you to make a plan, disregard ANY critics or naysayers and focus on what matter most to you 😤🙏🏿 📸@zanemichaelphotography
Be sure to pursue your passion because it’s amazing what can be accomplished with the proper mindset and hard work. Some of our greatest feats come from just going out there and doing the damn thing. How you train, what you eat, getting enough rest - those are just the tools used to build muscle shape and symmetry. That is the desired end result. The rest is just a process. Don’t rush the journey — it will come in time. We continue to level up and reach new heights with our @pt52_xcesscustom workout gear on this beautiful Friday in Arizona.

🔥Opportunities pop up for everybody all of the time. It’s the way that we progress. It’s whether or not you’re on the right frame of mind or in the right stage of your life or if you’re even looking for them, that determines, whether or not you see them. As you take more risks you see opportunities more easily. Risks are, never the safe option, but for me the safe option is the worst option....The riskiest life I can think of is allowing yourself to be molded into this comfortable, same-as-everybody-else routine. For me, that is risking my whole life.
Enough Said - @Physiquesgym has done it yet again- 🏆🏆 I can not thank @Thetinnmann0351 and @fit_photog_ enough for propelling me to reach a goal I never thought was possible. Only the best coaches/personal trainers in Arizona could transform me in this fashion, and to them I credit ALL my success. I was just a rough edged piece of metal that they pressed and molded together again. The journey, the struggle, the early mornings, sleepless nights, muscle cramps, injuries endured, minimal amounts of food, parking lot lunges🤦🏽♂️ at 5am, - all these experiences MADE the end result, MOLDED my mindset, and MATURED my work ethic. Also, having trained with my teammates day in and day out, as I whined and complained damn near every day 😂🤦🏽♂️ they put up with me constantly. I had the best support system and teammates in this journey In my first show ever, I came out with two trophies in my class for Men’s Classic Physique - Honestly, as nervous as I was out there I have no complaints. Nervous of messing up, people in the crowd, friends, family and my peers looking on - Other than being deprived of water and a sugar rush 😂 these things CONSTANTLY ran through my mind. “Don’t let them down”. I can now walk away standing tall and say I didn’t let them down nor myself, I did everything I set out to do and more!! I pray I inspired others as I went thru this process, I pray my insecurities and weaknesses that were turned to strengths makes someone else follow in my footsteps. Will I compete again? Will I push for the overall title in another show? To be Determined... 😉 God isn’t finished with me yet; the thought of inspiring others was the driving force behind me getting up every single morning! So I thank my family, friends, sponsor, supporters and social media followers for your energy! God bless all of you and thank you for supporting my journey.....🙏🏿 #RWTW#Fitness#inspiration#fitfam#physiquesgym#phoenix#oldtownscottsdale#scottsdale#feliciaromeroclassic#tucson#mesaartscenter#npcmilesproductions#feliciaromeroclassic2018#gym#npcclassicphysique#preplife#motivation#bodybuilding#strong#sexy#menwithmuscle#surgefam#surgesupplements#surgenation
You can’t expect to succeed if you only put in work on the days you feel like it. Stay consistent my friends because yes motivation does die at certain points. It will come and go from time to time but if you remain consistent despite the motivation, then the results will come regardless!
