"Wasn't trying to, though I know it comes too easily.
I can only go what he said, and it did make sense, as an external goal could take my inner drive to a new level. I've heard similar with training partners.
There are times I go in…"
"You're being to rough on yourself again (are you really gonna make me call you on this every time?). In my opinion in the gym you should be your greatest competition/motivation. External sources won't make you committed as much as inner…"
"Shane, that's awesome your training and career are one, and I thank you for that.

"Sorry you've been through such a horrible time.
We know so little about your life, so I am not sure what's realistic to try and even sometimes when you're being metaphorical or not. If you're constantly sick, then yes, go to a…"
