This is why I love bodybuilding, you have to be discipline / committed 100%. You cannot hide or blame anyone but yourself. The commitment must come from within. At the end of the day, you have to look at yourself and say “Did I give it a 100%?” If the answer is no then you have to dig deep and work harder. Stay focus and dedicated to your goal. In this arena, you only get what you put in.”
