That is my great friend dead-lifting all that weight! He is the true example of someone who is loving his life and living it to its fullest. He is always looking to push himself to become a better friend, husband, father, son, employee, colleague, manager, bodybuilder, motivator, teacher, and community member. It's awe inspiring to see and feel the amazing energy that flows from his genuine being.
He and I used to work out together at theTop Gun Naval gym at Miramar about 20 years ago. We pushed and Inspired each other to improve, but little did we know that we were forming a life long bond greater than just the metal we pressed and pushed. Our friendship slowly developed by a commitment to simply show up consistently to work out. Out of this consistency, grew a high level of trust and respect. With that trust and respect grew an unspeakable love of spirit. Of course most Macho men don't define it as such, but isn't it what it is?
Unfortunately, there are only a few people that will actually realize that love is the ultimate gift you can give someone. But this can change with you! A beautiful gold watch, purse, car, and a vacation home can never replace authentic love! These items are a nice compliment, but only a compliment.
Love is the ultimate gift of energy that is given to you by divinity for a reason much bigger than you'll ever know. It is love that keeps you plugged in to the source of the universe that creates experiences for us to be able to give that love back to others who may need it along their journey of life!
How are you teaching others to love or to love you? Are you displaying unconditional service which makes others feel special? Are you displaying patience beyond comprehension? Are you listening out of empathy and not sympathy?
These are things that we can And must learn, but we can't truly feel them unless we put it into practice! Go out there and forge strong bonds with others and let love continue to drive you!
With that said, "Put a little MaxPower into your life!"
