Learning Like a ConsumerI am willing to admit that I learn from my mistakes. I started out like everyone else, at a gym, hoping for a miracle. I watched a close friend learn like a consumer. He bought every magazine, read every article, hired every trainer and tried every trick in the book. It led to a lot of confusion and few results. I didn’t know much then, but I knew enough to know that I needed to take a different route.
Finding a MentorEnter an amazing mentor that busted every myth of bodybuilding and really opened my eyes. Everything that I thought was true, everything that my friend read in those magazines, was wrong. In fact, after 24 weeks of doing everything completely different than what the so-called experts said, I gained 41 pounds of lean muscle mass. To paraphrase Smith-Barney, I got that body the old-fashioned way, I earned it. No drugs. No supplements. I continued my progress until I reached a ripped 195 pounds and an extraordinary 4% body fat. I looked good enough to become a WBFF Pro-Fitness Model. Score one for the little guy.
Change is GoodI don’t know about you, but I never stop learning. I can’t help it. I want to tweak my workouts, to test theories, to change techniques as I learn more. The concept is still the same, the ideas are still there. It’s just the methods and techniques that have evolved. They still get results, just better, more efficient results. Change is good.
“The more you learn, the more you grow…” right?!
The YouTube Experiment
I decided to document my training, nutrition habits and even my overall mindset towards living large in my career, relationships and life. Before I knew it there were 20 episodes, ranging from 20 to 40 minutes each. Like so many people, I thought, “YouTube!”
I uploaded the episodes and things were great. Sure, I had a couple of rude comments, but there are always trolls hanging out at YouTube. I just ignored them. Then, one day I logged into my account only to find out that all my hard work was deleted. The reason? Inappropriate Content. I was blown away. There are videos of many, MANY inappropriate things on YouTube, but me? Wow!
The “Live Large TV” FamilyTo say I was upset is an understatement. I was sad. I was angry. Most of all, I was confused. I didn’t know what to do next. Luckily, the “Live Large TV” subscribers are like a really big, extended family. I asked for help and they responded in droves. An overwhelming 70% of my 120,000 regular newsletter readers said they wanted to keep seeing “Live Large TV” and were willing to pay for it. It was the perfect solution. I no longer had to deal with the arbitrary nature of YouTube and my viewers no longer had to deal with internet trolls, spammers and negative energy. Win-win.
Moving ForwardWe now have a paid platform to keep the idiots out and the “Living Large TV” family together. Everyone, and I truly mean everyone, is committed to learning, growing and improving. It is just the most supportive group of people on the net. Have you ever heard the phrase …
“You are the sum of the 5 people you hang out with the most”
Basically, it means that if your top 5 friends are healthy and fit, then, in all likelihood, you are, too. Hanging out with people who want to live their lives well, positive and LARGE will help you do the same. That’s just one of the benefits of this great group of people that I have come to know. General awesomeness. It’s contagious.
