Every morning, I perform 500 Push-ups.
This is not a mere exercise. It is a symbolic movement and event. I picked it up when I was 16.
Push-ups, is a form of gauging and preparing my soul for the day.
It is a way to get in tune with my soul.
It is a way to strengthen my soul, and to push my soul to it’s limits.
It is an act of strengthening my will-power.
Do I want to do push-ups?
Part of me, says no. The majority of myself says, Yes.
I want the whole.
That in turn will transfer to other areas, of my life.
Do I want to study? In wholeness, yes.
Do I want to strengthen my mind by reading books and expressing myself? In wholeness, yes.
Do I want to be kind, and respectful to every human being? In wholeness, yes.
Do I want to give my best effort and focus in every productive thing that I do?
In wholeness, yes.
Excellence is a habit. It is not an act.
Excellence, is a quality that must be maintained and kept in shape.
When I slow down in excellence, in my perception, I start to die.
I want to avoid that.
I want to avoid, letting my ego take over.
I wish to live a life from my soul, instead of the thing that perceives things incorrectly.
Just like everything in my life –
I wish to use things strategically, and with intellect.
Unlike others, I want to use activities, things, and material wisely.
I wish to use my ego strategically, and in a constructive way.
I wish to fashion it sharply, and to be able to overcome temptations, ills, and evils.
This is the greatest and simplest pleasure, to be able to have mastery over myself.
I am then, in turn, able to prevent injuries, self-inflicted and external from happening to me.
And whatever nature hands me, is especially handcrafted to the strength of my soul.
I believe the 400M is that challenge, I was born for this. And I am preparing to get back into what I do, and to be the best…
