The Track To Success = Simple Mathematical Equation
x + y = z
push-ups + hard work = muscles
(insert woe here) + hard work = success and happiness
Complexity in Simplicity
It doesn’t really get much more simple than push-ups, the most basic and primitive of all human workouts (aside from running from wild animals). It’s so disgustingly simple it shouldn’t even work; you don’t need any equipment or training, just two arms and a desire to succeed. And succeed you will, for push-ups get results—complex muscular results in simplistic, primitive ways. Similarly, seek out simple solutions to life’s complexities. All things can be broken down to simple parts. Tackle these simple parts one by one. By the time you get to the finish line you will be amazed at your complex results. And muscles.
It’s Hard For Everyone
No one gets a free ride. Well, unless you’re Teddy Montgomery (and if you know who that is, don’t tell anyone for fear of embarrassment). From the dawn of man, everyone has had a hard time or two (thousand). Life can be quite a grueling affair, but hard work and determination can overcome this living gulag and turn it into something a little more manageable. The same can be said for push-ups. They are not easy for anyone. Even that guy who can do like 2,000 in one session, well, he probably gets pretty darn winded by number 1,999. And remember, years ago he probably got down to do his first set and couldn’t get past five or six. But he stuck with it and look at him now! Johnny muscle-arm, live on stage.
Now, I’m going to go do some push-ups...
