It’s Monday morning and I’ve been doing a lot of thinking, as always. I just had an amazing two weeks in the most holy land on this planet. That’s pretty crazy. Whether you believe in God or not…that’s pretty powerful.

In Israel, we had a chance to sit down with a guy from the suburbs of Michigan who moved to Israel 13 years ago. This guy was so perplexed by the question of where we came from and why we are here that he has dedicated his life to learning about it.

I forget the exact word he used, but basically, he said that human beings are supposed to experience joy at all times. Obviously, this is not realistic…or is it?

On the way home from Israel, I had the good fortune of sitting next to a Rabbi from Brooklyn. After learning he was a Rabbi, I asked him two questions. What is the purpose of life and how did we get here.

The answers to these questions led to an incredible 2 hour conversation. He was saying how so many people in this world who seem to have everything are so unfulfilled. He believes the solution to feeling fulfilled is to believe in God. He also believes that the purpose of life is to be happy…whatever that means, and to get married and raise a family. God has a plan for you and me and all of us, according to the Rabbi.

If you want something and you feel it then so does God.

I also asked him if he felt that God wanted me to be sitting next to him and if we were supposed to be having a conversation. He said, “Yes, of course! Everything happens for a reason.” He later confessed to me that when he first got on the plane he tried moving his seat because he didn’t want to be near a bunch of kids.

My take away from my past 2 weeks of my life is this:

Life is absolutely amazing. Why do people fight? Why do people hate what they do? Why do people hold back? Why do people not give it their all? Why do people complain as opposed to doing? Why do people not go after their true dreams? Why do people not believe in themselves?

Why can’t you be whoever the hell it is you dream of? Why can’t you have the body you desire?

I know the answer and it’s the reason why MyBodyTutor is taking off.

Life happens. There are too many distractions. There are too many hours to be worked. We are forgetting about what it is we really want to do and we keep making excuses. We keep lying to ourselves.

It’s the same reason why every mega successful person I’ve ever studied has personal coaches, trainers and a personal army of support behind them.

When you lie to yourself you feel like crap. There’s no doubt that when you wake up in the morning with a plan do X, Y and Z and actually get it done you feel better than if you were not do it.

And life is too short to not feel great as often as possible!

Why can’t be a company with tens of thousands of clients and hundreds of tutors one day?

Why can’t you do what it is you really want to do?

There’s not one good reason in the world. In the end, we’re all just going to be buried 6 feet under the ground.

I’ve never felt this inspired and pumped up in my entire life to make my dreams come true…

There’s nothing stopping me…

Or you.

  1. Adam,

    Great post. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ve been finding a lot of inspiration lately and I just reread your post/questions about God. Good stuff, and good comments too.

    I’m not sure I had anything thought provoking which spurred on my comment here, but I just wanted to encourage you. Thanks for the article. Keep up the good work.
