I was training for a show in college and I was about 3-4 weeks out from the day. One day I was chilling at the cut with my roommate and I was bitching about something competition related and he straight up turned to me and said,
"Stop getting all worked about the day of your show. You are the fucking show. Every day you walk around in great shape, a brick shithouse and pretty fucking lean."
After that I said, Fuckin A...he's right....lol
I had had moments before where I really felt like I was onto something, but hearing that from him gave me a view of how others saw me.
