It feels a bit strange to be embracing positivity at a time like this, but I can’t help but see the light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel.  So I want to share that light with you in this ‘off topic’ post.

If truth be told, I hadn’t really been taking this thing seriously until the gyms started closing their doors.

I don’t mean to make light of a heavy situation, but as somebody who leads a pretty simple life, it’s the simple things that stop me in my tracks.

To be clear, I’m not here to project my opinion on current events.  What I want to do is share something that is very close to my heart.  In the hope that I can inspire you to make the best of a bad situation.

Lipstick Lifters derived from my love of lifting and my desire for freedom.

I work on it every single day, without exception.  If I’m not physically doing something – I’m planning something.

Last week, a major plan that I had been working on for over a year took a nose dive at 100 miles per hour and went straight through the floor.  

So now I’m completely exposed, with plans B-C & D on the table and no clue which one to take.

What I do know is that there is an opportunity in this mess, and I’m here for it.

I started this to inspire you through weightlifting.  Up until now, most of what I have done is support you on the weightlifting side.

But in light of current events, I want to take this opportunity to empower you to use this time to build the thing you really want.

Whether it’s related to weightlifting or not.  I’d like to see you transform the strength you have in the gym, into the mental and emotional strength to take a leap of faith on your big dream.

I’m talking about the thing you always wanted to do.

The thing you’ve been putting off because you don’t have the ‘time’ or because you’re afraid of how it will work out.

Maybe you’re worried about what other people will say or think of you?

It's 2020 and people are out there hoarding basic essentials in bulk because they are selfish and give zero fucks about what anyone else needs.  So remove the value of anyone’s opinion of you immediately.

If this isn’t a wakeup call – I don’t know what is.

So now I ask; if your world came crashing down tomorrow, how would you rebuild it?

Do that.

Do it now.

Start today.

And don’t stop until you get what you want.

Leaving you with love and lifts,
