Hi guys and girls from a very cold Cape Town. We just missed day zero here in Cape Town and nearly ran out of water so we are so glad the rainy season is upon us. We pray for a good one!
Ok, back to the topic…

Many times we feel demotivated because our efforts seems like a drop of water in the ocean. We feel we will never get there and the progress we make is so small that it makes no difference. This is when many, many people give up on their hopes and dreams.
Let me put it to you like this. Your efforts may just “feel” like a drop of water in the ocean, but the truth is the ocean are made up of many, many drops. All your hard work, sweat and pushing through with the diet is like many drops together and counting this up over a period of a year, two or three makes for a LOT of drops that start to form an ocean.

Success is NEVER a short term thing, it is a long-term lifestyle that brings dividends to those pushing through. It is not a mater of feeling like training or dieting, you HAVE to train and diet. It is like working, you HAVE to work you don’t have a choice. The same goes for training and dieting, you HAVE to just do it. You miss work only when you have a sick note, same applies to training and diet.
Off course there will be stumbling blocks, sometimes major one’s. Last year (2017) I could not train for the whole year due to severe health issues. But when that stumbling block is out of the path, then we pick up the pieces and get back to gym and eating correctly. Stumbling blocks are a given and part of life. We cannot truly avoid them and we have to make them part of the game. The key is just to always resume after each severe stumbling block. And few stumbling blocks is bigger than the one I faced in 2017 (banned by doctor for 12 months from gym due to severe bad health from drinking dirty water – nearly, nearly died!). But we must get up and continue. So I am back at gym and slowly building up the body again with the winning recipe. Off course it will take some time…after 40 any setback takes up to 2-3 times as long to get back to the level one had before the setback. And the older one get, the longer this recovery time takes. BUT, the fact is, we CAN get back to that level and might even surpass it and that is the goalpost and reality for those that keep getting up and push through.

So to all of you that do not feel like training or sticking to that diet because it looks like your efforts are worthless, let’s pick up the pieces and just MAKE IT HAPPEN because all those efforts together start forming an ocean for those that keeps pushing through! You WILL reach success with this mindset.
Wish you all a blessed week of training.

Hi Gert, I’m 51, live in North Carolina and would like to be considered an outstanding example of many of your suggestions. I’m 51 and have accomplished amazing things in less than 4 months. Your core message and certain specifics have greatly influenced me.
Hi Greg, truly appreciate your feedback and want to wish you MUCH success for your journey. God bless you brother. G.
Hi Gert! Great post! It’s cool how you combine offering motivation as well as knowledge to your readers. My training is more sport specific (for tennis) than it is for bodybuilding. But, the key principles are all the same as far as what you need to do to achieve the results you set for yourself! So, keep up the good work and writing, Gert! Even if you occasionally wonder how much you are helping others out there, be encouraged yourself! You are making a positive difference in the lives of men and for His Kingdom!
Shack – thanks so much for that feedback brother – truly appreciated! Keep reaching for the stars and keep fighting the good fight! God bless you brother…
