Dropping Excuses and Succeeding

I was wanting to make a post to update all of you, my subscribers, if anyone still checks in on my blog once in a while.  I wanted to be spontaneous and original, and I wanted to express myself as genuinely as possible.

I feel that this is a successful attempt at that.  The title for this post, Dropping Excuses and Succeeding, happened to be a blog that I almost wrote WAYYY back in April.  That’s right around the time that I quit blogging because I was working so much.  I worked so many hours that, while I had a chance to write, I really just didn’t want to do that.

I put myself first the past 9 months.  This website was a duty to me, a hobby, and a job.  When I got a new job in March, my priorities changed.  I had to pay off debts, work really hard, and figure out what to do with myself!

However, the Christian Boyles that went to work at this job was not, by any means, the Christian Boyles that worked at his previous job.  Over the past few months, I’ve been told numerous times by people with much higher positions than myself that I’m very analytical.  This has been a good thing for me, and their statement was a reminder of all the days I sat by myself thinking and when I wrote posts for Maxed Out Muscles.

More than anything, this website has been a place of growth for me.  Having time with myself and sharing my thoughts with others, while learning better attitudes and attributes have brought me to the conclusion that I needed this site.

Since the last time I wrote I’ve went from being an inspector(temp-employee at that) to a team leader, and as of this week I have been promoted to the title of production supervisor.  That brings me to the moral of the story, the whole point in writing this post, and the reason I’m here today:

It makes sense that I was moved to begin writing a post in April titled “Dropping Excuses and Succeeding” because that’s exactly what I did, and what I will continue to do in my life.  It’s what I, the writer, would urge you, the reader, to do with your own life.  It’s not impossible, and the success may not even be difficult, but you’re the first person you have to win over.

My new car.  I love it!
My new car. I love it!

You’re the first person you have to win over.  You’re the first person you have to convince that you’re good enough.  You’ve got to take pride in yourself, affirm yourself daily as someone who will succeed, and go out and show the world what you are worth!

Along the way, people will notice and you will gain mentors.  At that point, it’s important to remember that you can’t always be a talker because it’s time to listen.  You listen to your mentors, push hard, and hold your head high.  You can achieve anything.

I’m so glad I was making this post 7 months ago, and I’m elated that I can finish it from a place of experience.  I’m finally not telling you these things out of simple faith, which is important, but from actually walking the walk and going through it!




BroScience Or Gym Shaman Elliott Hulse

I had an interesting thought today while writing a previous post.  I was thinking to myself, “I could share a video to entertain them.  I don’t know which one though.  I really like Elliott Hulse’s videos but I think Brosciencelife videos are hilarious.”

Thinking about the two and how drastically different they are, I decided to share them both and let you decide who gives the better advice(yes, I know brosciencelife is satire but I think most of their viewers actually take their advice.  Also, E. Hulse could be looked at in such a light due to his energetic attitude and off the wall advice at times…not hating, just stating).

Now, to compare the bro-scientist to the gym shaman.

Bro scientist vs Gym shaman

To find the answer, subjectively, you can decide whose advice you’d take on preworkout in the videos below:

Gym Shaman Elliott Hulse:

Bro Scientist Dom:

There you have it!  You got to see both perspectives and I’m sure you decided for yourself!  With all that being said, I’m going to go drian a Monster and hit the gym!
