i was clickin around and found the trailer for Peaceful Warrior. It looked interesting and found out it was based on a book, so I went to the bookstore and found it in the self-help section (next to body-for-life :P) so I bought it, took it home and sat in the yard to rad it. It took three hours. I’m not an overly pessemistic guy, nor am I depressed but does it say something about me or contemporary cultuer that I was looking for some inspiration?
The book was terrible, I kept hearing my voice over and over going ‘damn juggernaut bitch - i can write better than this’. I took it back the next day and got my mula back, the first time in my life I haev ever returned a book.
Its left a nasty taste in my mouth tho - I remember 6 months ago after finishing four hours of planning what I was going to lift and when, which foods, which suplements and having inspired myself, feeling so great, so amazing that I couldn;t wait to get it started.
I remember watching the fox documentary special on bruce lee’s life and feeing inspired from that, I remember our kyokushin sensei singling me out to teach the others how to do the katas and walking home floating three iches from the pavement. I rmemeber watching american beauty, reading fountainhead, reading lords of discipline and feeling inspired.
what / who? inspires you? more and mroe these days it seems like a person would have to look inwards to inspire himself.
just me ramblings
