No Excuse for Not Reaching My Goals

Not one, not any. This makes me realize what a whiner I’ve been for making excuses to skip.

I was at the outdoor gym yesterday when a guy in a wheel chair went to the pull up bars and climbed up to the pull up bars, did his set of pull ups. While he was strapped in on his wheelchair. Did the same thing on the dips.

No excuses.

That dude is hardcore. I would have bought him a burger.

This is inspiring and she is truly amazing. Ne excuses…total respect for Barbie Thomas.

People like that really make you realize that the mind is powerful. Everything begins in mind and ends in the mind. If the mind conceives it, the heart can believe it, the body can achieve it.

Her story aside, I can’t get over how weird her photos look.
