Imagine that your doctor told you that you had 20 years left to live?

Would you quit your job?

Would you travel more?

Would you get married or divorced?

I think I know what I would do.  I would buy an R.V. and travel throughout the United States for several years.

In my R.V. I would pack a squat rack, bench press and up to 600 lb’s in weights.  Although it’s going to kill my gas mileage, I would be able to set up a base at different sites and powerlift.

For my cardio, well that’s easy.  I can run anywhere in the great outdoors, or alongside the truck as my wife drives.

After several years traveling throughout the United States, I would like to do the same in Europe.  Travel throughout the different counties with my 600 lb’s of weights and maybe take one or two side-excursions to Asia, most likely Japan and one other country.

Along with stopping at various churches and praying for my afterlife, I will publish two books about my travels and then I am ready to die.

So what would you plan on doing?

Or more importantly, what are you doing now?

  • Do you workout 5-6X a week?
  • Do you lift heavy to moderate weights?
  • Do you add cardio to your routine including sprint training?

Also, how is your diet?

  • Do you eat clean?
  • Do you have a visible 6-pack for part of the year?
  • Do you take any recreationale drugs?
  • Do you drink more than 20 beers a week?
  • Do you have high blood pressure or cholesterol and need medication to lower it?

WAKE UP STUPID!

Your life expectancy is probably only 20 years right now.

Travel…

Exercise…

Run…

Eat right..

Pray…

And enjoy your life…

I have to be honest with myself. I am a 38-year old man, and there is a good chance that I will never become a billionaire.

I SHOULD become a millionaire. Not necessarily a million dollars in salary, but I should eventually hit one million dollars in liquid assets at some point in my life.

Not rich, but solid all-American middle class.

But why should I give up? I am a super competitive guy, but I am also realistic.

How can I possibly compete with a BILLIONAIRE?

Two words: BODYBUILDING and VACATIONS

VACATION:

Vacation is very important to me and I would like to travel as much as possible while I am alive on this earth. Some of the places I attended in the last 4-5 years:

St Patrick’s Day Boston
St Patrick’s Day Key West
St Patrick’s Day NYC
St Patrick’s Day Philadelphia
St Patrick’s Day Ireland (Dublin)
St Patrick’s Day Arizona (Scottsdale)

Kentucky Derby
Preakness Stakes
Belmont Stakes

Mardi Gras (New Orleans)

Spring Break South Padre

Seattle/Vancouver
Charleston, SC
Savannah, GA
Magog, Canada
Lake Willoughby, Vermont
Ottawa, Canada
Dewey Beach, Delaware
Atlantic City
Las Vegas
Myrtle Beach
Gettysburg, PA
Hilton Head, SC
Raleigh, NC
Kennebunkport, MA
Lake George, NY
Lake Placid, NY
Portland, MA
Birmingham Alabama
Lancaster, PA

Sweden/Estonia

BODYBUILDING:

I work out either 6 or 7 days a week and I also eat a healthy diet. I haven’t met too many people in this world who can beat my 6-pack every summer.

“BODYBUILDING IS ONE OF THE MOST FAIR SPORTS IN THE WORLD”.

Of course genetics play a large role in bodybuilding, but overall, you get back what you put in.

You can have the most expensive personal trainer and the most expensive steroids available, and you probably still won’t beat me.

Rich or poor, bodybuilding brings people together.

Conclusion: So what can a billionaire do that I can’t?

I am unable to fly on a private plane, I don’t even fly first class.
I am unable to afford very expensive hotels or 5-star restaurants
I don’t have access to world leaders

The only way I can compete with a billionaire is by doing more life EVENTS.

When I am dying in the hospital and the priest comes in the room, I want him to slap me five and say “You Lived a Good Life!”
