Pumpkin Growing is Like The Olympics
Let’s say you are a world-renowned pumpkin farmer. (Punk farmer for short)
Obviously, your main mission each year is to win the state fair pumpkin growing contest at all costs.
These are high stakes people.
I mean seriously, are you really going to let Sally from one county over take home the prize (pie-rise? Get it the prize is a pie?) winning pumpkin medal?
You’re going to do whatever it takes to grow the best darn pumpkin the world has ever seen.
So what do you do? You give the pumpkin what it needs. You're not going to give it beer and bread.
You’re going to make sure your prized pumpkins are watered and cared for.
Same goes for Olympians.
Competing in the Olympics is pretty much exactly the same things as growing a pumpkin. (No steroids allowed)
You don’t become that chiseled and mentally and physically sharp on beer and sandwiches.
Optimize with food that is best for your body. YSee food as fuel and medicine. Health and training can become your golden ticket to success.
Perhaps you are not running for the Olympics or growing pumpkins, but you are likely pursuing something challenging in your life — creative pursuits, health issues, raising kids etc.
That means to be on your A game. You need to give your body and mind the fuel it needs so you can live optimally.
Don’t just treat your body like its a temple — treat it like a prize-winning pumpkin.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
