Arnold made a movie called "Pumping Iron". Everyone who has done bodybuilding has seen it. Probably many times. I think there are  lots of people in this world who got no idea what is, "pumping iron". That's OK. I know what it means.

Let me tell you what I think.  The Iron never lies to you, never tries to cheat you. Iron never tries to hurt you. If you do my job, from time to time, you will find that some people do not respect you. Some are jealous, some are afraid of you, some try to find a way to punish you.

But the Iron, it is the real deal. Iron is totally honest. I t is like a beacon in the pitch black.

Your "friends" may come and go. But the Iron will be your greatest friend. I t will never freak out on you, run away.

Two hundred pounds of Iron is 200 pounds.

I train in the gym. I enter competitions. I go to the stage. I win and I lose. I learn lots. Both from my job and from competitions.

Bodybuilders, Physique and Figure competitors, we like those inspirational messages. Here's a few I found.

"The only place were 'success' comes before 'work' is in the dictionary."

"Obsessed is the word the lazy use to describe the dedicated."

"It's a lifestyle - train like there's no finish line."

"Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder but don't nobody wanna lift no heavy ass weights."

"If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse."

"If you always do what you have always done, then you will always get what you have always got."

"The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent."

The world is full of judges and critics. I read their comments on the internet, see them on the Sport  and the News channels. I see them in their blue suits and ties.  They relish the strong man stumble or the doer of great deeds that could have done them better.  They have never been there. They have never dared. They have never known what it feels like to lose. They never enjoy the victory.

A player in the Major Leagues made an error. Later that day, during the "highlights", the sportcaster says, "That was brutal".   What would really be brutal would be to put a uniform on him, give him a glove, send him to the field in front of 60,000 people. Then, you will see something "brutal".
