You see the strong exterior but I focus more on the mental toughness. The ability to be mentally strong is a must. There will be people that will try to ruin your day, bring your spirit down, and most of all, there will be some of the hardest days you will face coming in the future. The objective is to achieve happiness through yourself and create a bubble where not a single word or action can throw you off path. Your hardest days will eventually become your easiest and your enemies will eventually become your followers. #strongmindstrongbody#soldier#fit#tough#toughness#life#strength#resilience#armystrong#army#military
I used look up to God and question why he put me on this earth. I used to ask myself things like “what is my purpose? Am I living up to his expectations? Why do I wake up everyday?”. I now know my purpose in life is to make people smile, motivate them, and make sure everyone around me is happy. God put me on this earth to touch lives, and I do that every single day. You ever wonder why god put you on this earth? Why out of a million different cells that could have came out, why was it you? God put you here for a reason. Whether you are still seeking that reason or completely lost on why god put you here, just know you have a job and a purpose! I ask god to bless all of you guys through life and I wish you nothing but happiness, love, peace, and respect. #strongmindstrongbody#god#happiness#purpose#life#love#motivation
So I’m going to be totally real with you guys, I am extremely self conscious at times. Sometimes I think “Dam my legs are super little” or “Dam my face is super fat from bulking”. I recently have increased carb and protein intake to put on some major weight to grow the lats and shoulders bigger and it has been going well so far. I am saying this because your body may not be where you want it to be right now but it’s up to you to love it, embrace it, and change it. Ofcourse people will always have something to say but beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. If you are considered to be overweight, underweight or, whatever it may be. I am here to tell you that you are beautiful and to stop listening to what society has to say about you. It’s your body own that and be proud of you! Who are we to define what beauty looks like, every person is beautiful in some shape or form. #selfconfidence#loveself#love#body#beauty#fit#fitnessmotivation#fitness#strongmindstrongbody
True happiness is what you should chase. I told my friend the other day these exact words “I am building a team of nothing but positive energy and happiness, if it’s not real I don’t want it”. To be honest with you guys I believe being unhappy is a choice because you have the ability to change your life. Don’t let Someone control your ability to be happy. Take your light back and shine. Let the world see positivity through your smile and hope in your demeanor. #strongmingstrongbody#smile#positivity#life#hope#love#strength#shine#light
**This is not to offend any other race** What is the modern day BLACK PANTHER? The truth is we are all heroes. Everyday you get up to fed your family, educate yourself, go to work, provide, and be the best you can be is a part of the black panther movement. They weren’t for violence but wanted to defend our people from police brutality, so we could progress in life and have a fighting chance integrating into this world. To my beautiful black women raising their children to be their best, respecting themselves, and educating themselves every single day, you are phenomenal. To my black brothers out there taking care of their children, providing for their families, and breaking barriers everyday, you are a hero to someone. We are all modern day black panthers, and we are all heroes. Beautiful black people stand up ✊🏽! Am I my brothers keeper? .#blackpanther#blackhistorymonth#blackandwhiteisworththefight#black#africa#african#martin#trevonmartin#ourpeople#amimybrotherskeeper#brothers#kingdom
This is a day of love whether that be self love, or love for another person. This is a day dedicated to show love but this shouldn’t be the only day you do it. You’ve heard it all before “Valentines Day is just another day” that statement is correct. However, it gives those who do not celebrate their love everyday a chance to remind eachother of why they are together. It also reminds you to love yourself because self love and fulfillment leads to love for someone else. You cannot love another soul without loving yourself first. Go forward and deliver smiles today, this is the one day dedicated to you to love, so go forward and display it. #strongmindstrongbody#valentinesday#valentines#love#spreadlove
If you’re not able to look in the mirror and be proud of the person you’ve become, you need to make changes. We need to remember that people are always watching. You should be a pure reflection of what you stand for at all times. Your integrity should never be questioned and your work ethic should be the greatest in the room. Your legacy and family name should be remembered by the great things you’ve done and the people you’ve helped in the process. #strongmindstrongbody#success#gym#fitness#fitnessmotivation#fitnessmodel
You ever think about what one simple compliment, one simple smile delivered, and simple kind act can do for someone’s life? You never know when someone is on the edge of hurting themselves or giving up, so encouraging eachother is a must. Let’s uplift, love, and smile 💯. #strongmindstrongbody
In life we sometimes mistake our struggles to be the devil’s workings. However, god gives you struggles in order to overcome the devils work when it does come about. He wants to show you the difference between right and wrong so the devil cannot wrap his deceiving arms around you. In closing make godly decisions and believe in his plan. #strongmindstrongbody#devil#god#struggle#hisplan
The most beautiful things in life come from a rough past, scars unseen, and struggles conquered. To see where you once were in life and to look at yourself now, you better had progressed and you better be proud of yourself. I can easily make this post about me but it’s not! It’s about us! We should get up and uplift each-other everyday as we go through life. We should applaud a man for being faithful, loyal, and trustworthy instead of making him feel lame for doing so. We should applaud a woman for being classy and taking care of her business instead of bashing her with hate. We live in a world where a difference can be made but it’s up to you to initiate the change. It only takes one great person to light the candles of greatness in every soul around them! #strongmindstrongbody#begreat#workhard#success#struggles#blessed
My brother @robwooods is literally one of the realest doing it! Any and everything in my life contains substance, and his music is the core of it! I don’t befriend anyone that I do not see substance within, and to be honest when I linked up with the bro I automatically could tell that he was a real and pure dude! Go support a real one and download “111 Taylor” on iTunes and Spotify! #support#strongmindstrongbody#brother#blessed#grind#success
What makes a man, a man? It’s not his ability to make money, buy flashy things, and be a alpha male. No it’s his ability to provide, stand tall, and be god fearing. It’s his ability to say he is going to do something and stand behind that word. When you tell people you’re going to do something, they shouldn’t question it. Say what you mean and mean what you say, be a man! That’s what kings do 💯. #strongmindstrongbody.
Had a talk this morning with @devin_the_dudeee and @kevin_kj_johnson_ifbb_pro about being humble and uplifting one another as we progress in fitness. It is a must to support eachother as we climb the ladder to success. Never hate on another man who is doing better than you at succeeding in a certain aspect. Instead you should gain the hunger to learn from his trials, tribulations, and success so you can one day bet greater than him. Let’s show love for one another as we succeed in life. So in simple remain humble, share knowledge, and live life everyday! #strongmindstrongbody
Can you believe that no one believed in me? Everyone used to laugh at me in the gym. Did I let that stop me? Not at all! I knew my vision was clear and I saw the end. Never let someone talk you down into thinking you can’t do something. Believe in yourself and your dreams. You can do anything you set your mind to and I am a firm believer in that. Be great and goodnight! #strongmindstrongbody#fit#dream#begreat#fitness
The moment you tell yourself:
I am worth it, I can do it, I believe in myself, I will accomplish anything, I will overcome every obstacle. Your entire life will change!
In high school I was a low performer. I never received good grades, I never applied myself, and never took life serious.
My mother and best high school teacher told me “You’re so smart, why not apply yourself?”.
I realized that sometimes you won’t believe in yourself, sometimes it takes someone to see the light in you before you see the light in yourself. This is why it’s imperative to surround yourself with greatness.
You have to do what you have to do for you! Never die mediocre, live in greatness! #fit#success#life#motivation#strongmindstrongbody
Some people fail to understand that the time you spend with them is valuable. That’s dedicated time you put aside just for them. Remember time can’t be taken back. However, time can definitely be distributed else where. Make sure your time is accounted for. Everytime you clock in and out of someone’s life, they better appreciate that! If they don’t...well you know the rest 💯. #fit#success#life#motivation#strongmindstrongbody
Love your life, perfect your life, and beautiful all things in your life.
I got that quote tattooed on my ribs to remind myself that everyday I have an opportunity to be better.
The truth is you’ll never be perfect, but it’s not about that.
It’s about being confident, secure, and happy within yourself.
You have to realize that fitness isn’t a competition about who can be the most fit or who looks better in the gym.
No fitness is about achieving a better you both physically and mentally. Exercising both your mind and body.
You will become better over time, nothing happens over night.
So guys keep your vision. I am here with you and for you! God bless you all! Let’s work! #fitness#fitlife#fitnesslove#strongmindstrongbody
What do I do this for? To motivate, connect, and inspire those around me. I am here to break barriers. There is misconception in the fitness industry today, and I am here to prove that misconception wrong. Yes you can have a great body and not be arrogant, stupid, rude, and inconsiderate of others. Yes it’s possible for a fitness guy or girl to be well rounded possessing smarts and respect for themselves. You don’t have to pose naked or take a picture with your junk showing. No all you have to do let your moves and hard work speak for itself, people respect that. No one cares about how many times you attempted something, they only care about the end result, and that is you actually accomplished something. What are you going to accomplish? To all my fitness enthusiast out there, let’s change the game by breaking barriers, proving the misconception wrong. Let’s not only stay true to ourselves but show people the truth. You either stand for something, or nothing at all. Production by @guevara_films and track by @9_kingb go buy&download “Deception” on iTunes, please support my brother. #fit#gym#grind#life#gym#motivation#hardwork#strongmindstrongbody#fitnessmotivation#fitnessdedication fitlife #fitnesslifestyle#fitnesslife
As you go through life there will always obstacles, misfortunes, things that will absolutely make you want to crumble. However, it’s up to you to fuel that energy into something productive. Yesterday I got news that had me completely in a “I don’t want to be bothered” state of mind. But I thought about it and said to myself “what good does it do to stay in the slumps?” Why not channel that energy into what I love the most? That’s exactly what I did! I got up yesterday, put a smile on my face, and recorded a fitness video putting my all into it because I’d rather make something negative, extremely positive. God bless you guys and it’s all love! Thank you for everything! #strongmindstrongbody#fitness#gym#workout#god#blessings#mybrother
