Will 2012 Doomsday ruin your muscle gains?

Yes. The 2012 Doomsday WILL destroy all of your gains
in muscle, strength and life…

…if you think it will.

I often get odd questions like this, probably because I also
enjoy deep philosophical discuss as much as I love talking
about strength.

Here is what one dude asked me on Facebook yesterday.

For those of you who don’t know…

…according to the Myan calender, 2012 is supposed to spell
the end of the world as we know it.

So this prediction has a lot of people anxious to see what might
happen.

Honestly, this is all very interesting to me too since I teach
people to become “the strongest version of themselves”.

I may be wasting my time by inspiring people to become stronger,
and the people who accept my transformative message may also
be wasting their time…

…since we might all be dead come December.

So, what do I think we should do?

Well, as fascinating as it is to consider a doomsday is upon us…

…I choose to just keep doing what I LOVE to do.

Keep lifting weights.

Keep eating healthy foods.

Keep working towards refining your skills.

Keep becoming the stronger you.

Notice that I didn’t say, “worry” or “just give it all up.”

I also didn’t say “keep doing what you HAVE TO do.”

Even if I was 100% sure that the doomsday will come,
my advice would be the same.

My advice is to keep, or begin, doing what you LOVE TO do.

One positive things about a “doomsday” is that it reminds us of
our mortality.

We are all going to die. Some sooner, some later. But we’re all
going to die.

That’s just the way it is.

Only when we face the reality that our time on Earth is short, and
that we’ll be dead in the blink of an eye…

…do we begin thinking about HOW we would choose to use the
little time we have.

When you realize that our time on Earth is just a brief vacation
on this tiny rock in The Solar System…

…you’ll stop working so neurotically towards some imaginary
ideal dictated by popular culture and media, and begin drowning
yourself in the things you LOVE.

You’ll train, not because you want to look like Greg Plitt.

You’ll train because you LOVE the way the barbell feels in your
hands, and your struggle against gravity.

You’ll eat well, not because you are “cutting or bulking”.

You’ll eat well because it makes you feel good and adds vitality
to your short life.

If this 2012 doomsday is really anything…

…it is a GOOD THING.

But only if you choose to live every single day like it is your
last…

…because it might be.
