Opportunity knocks

A few days ago I had the privilege of meeting some of South Africa’s most prominent bodybuilders and fitness athletes. Michael Adonis, Dylan Ridley and Robert Smith visited our offices here at Muscle Evolution for video interviews.

Funny how things changed when they arrived. The aura of their presence filled the room. I think it is that extra intangible feeling that has the name winner written all over it. Chatting to them I

Funny how things changed when they arrived. The aura of their presence filled the room. I think it is that extra intangible feeling that has the name winner written all over it. Chatting to them I realized, strangely enough, that all of them agreed on the same thing.

That when an opportunity comes knocking you better open the door.

The dictionary defines the word opportunity as a favourable or advantageous combination of circumstances.

These athletes grabbed their opportunities with both hands. They refused to become part of the herd, destined to do little but to live out their lives without chasing their dreams. Through the years they have been improving at a steady pace, carefully planning to do whatever it took to shape their physiques into championship form.

Although we all train for different reasons the goals of building a stronger mind and body are to cultivate all-around excellence, strength, good health and a fine appearance along with a sense of well-being and self-confidence.

Winning bodybuilding championships might not be your thing but you will discover that there are pleasure and rewards to be found in many other sports and that the proper use of weights will only enhance your capacity for excellence and enjoyment in these pursuits.

If you are around winners you get a feeling that they want to do more with their lives than just to exist. Champions are not afraid of pushing the limits and then to enjoy the marvellous feeling of accomplishment that comes from going all-out.Their positivity never wears off, no matter how many times you are around it – it is contagious.They want to better themselves and they hold the belief that you can turn yourself into anything you want. For them luck is no more than opportunity meeting preparation. Follow their lead because we are here to do more than just exist.
