One day in my late teens, my dad asked me if I wanted to go and get some live chickens with him.
I didn't understand the concept of “fresh” food at the time, so the whole idea seemed absurd to me, not to mention how embarrassing it would be if anyone saw me carrying live chickens home.
But that day something would happen inside my head that would change my life forever. It would set off a chain of events that would eventually lead to me reaching many of my big goals and successes in life.
A switch was flicked in my head that day that would change the way I behave forever.
The idea of going to some random place to get live chickens was absurd, and would likely be embarrassing as hell, but I thought, “Sod it, I'll do it anyway”.
I thought I'm going to invest my time in this, because I might get something good out of it.
So we drove over to this house and an old man, Dave, likely in his 70's, opened the door. Him and his grandson Paul, took us to the back yard, where chickens and other birds were kept in cages.
It was disgusting!
The whole place stunk of shit! There was bird shit everywhere, the walking spaces were so tight, you couldn't walk through them without getting bird shit on your clothes.
When it came to selecting the chickens, Dave wanted me to hold one to verify that it was healthy – but I didn't want to go near it!
In the end we bought those chickens home, and I was horrified to find that we had guests! Yes, and there were girls there too!
The chickens were inside cardboard boxes, I'd have to pass by the guests to get the boxes to the back yard. So I left them by the front door and ran upstairs to change my clothes, hoping someone else would sort the chickens out.
By the time I came back downstairs, the boxes were no longer by the front door. I heard laughter and screaming coming from the back yard. When I went there, I saw a bunch of kids playing with the chickens.
These kids were fascinated and scared at the same time. They'd get close, then jump back. All the adults were standing there laughing at the kids, and everyone was having an awesome time!
One of the girls asked me if I got the chickens, and where I got them from. I told her the story, and I got to know her – awesome!
And the awesomeness didn't end there.
The chickens laid fresh, fertile eggs for us for a good few days, and I found out for the first time, that chicken tastes DELICIOUS when you have 'em fresh.
Now I know a place where I can go any time to get a chicken for seven bucks. Awesome (though I haven't been back yet).
That turned out to be an awesome day! One I'll never forget. And it all came down to that moment of decision, when I decided ‘what the heck, let's just go for it'.
If I had been a bitch and told my dad the usual, “no, I don't wanna go”, nothing would have happened, and that would be one less of life's fun memories.
So what I'm getting at with this seemingly-random talk about my dad and live chickens, is this:
Do weird, random and absurd stuff. Do stuff you're afraid of doing. Do stuff you wouldn't normally do. Do stuff people don't “normally” do. Just do it for the sake of doing it. Do it BECAUSE you are afraid of it. Do it BECAUSE you think it's weird. Do it BECAUSE you wouldn't “normally” do it.
The only way to change – to get a better chest, a better body, be more confident, be more manly, more adventurous, more successful, is if you do stuff you wouldn't normally do.
If you do the same stuff all the time, then you'll stay the same as you always are.
In your goal for sculpting a manly chest, I often challenge you to stop doing the same stuff you've always been doing. I recommend new exercises, eating styles, books, programs and lifestyle changes that may seem outlandish, different and weird.
But go for it anyway.
Try it, give it a go. Be outlandish, be different, try new stuff – that's how you change, that's how you grow, that's how you end up having awesome experiences in life.
And don't just do it for sculpting your body. Do it in every aspect of your life. You will become a much better, more well-rounded person, with awesome life-experiences, if you would but feel the fear, feel the weirdness, feel the reluctance, and do it anyway!
Back when my dad broached me with the idea of getting live chickens, I was actually sat there reading a book called “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway” by Susan Jeffers. To this day, it's one of the WORST books I've ever read.
It's full of wishy-washy self-help BS. I read the first few pages, and decided never to even ATTEMPT to read it again.
But there was ONE THING great about the book.
That was it.
The title of that book changed my life.
Any time I feel fear or reluctance, I see it as a cue that I should do it. The more you face your fears, the stronger you get, and the more you grow as a person.
And it doesn't just apply to fear.
Any time you think something might be embarrassing. Just do it.
Any time you think something might not work. Just do it – and you may just find that it works better than you ever imagined!
One thing I'd like you to try today, is to add this one ingredient to your diet.
Some guys can FEEL the testosterone boost they get from eating this ingredient – it makes them horny as hell, gives them better mental clarity, more energy, and better sleep. Those that DON'T feel it, are still likely to get a massive testosterone boost that will, over time, help to flatten out those man boobs.
I say “help” to flatten out your man boobs, because it's very unlikely any single ingredient on its own will give you a flat chest. Over time, you have to incorporate more and more testosterone boosting foods into your diet. It's when the majority of the food in your diet helps to limit insulin release, block estrogen, and boost testosterone, that your body starts to respond by changing its physical form to something more masculine.
So, I hope you enjoy adding this new ingredient to your diet. Here's that link again. Please be sure to leave a comment on the article, and to like the article on Facebook:
