You’re Not Ready Yet
Take a look at the following emails and see if you
can find yourself in them somewhere:
I am a minor league baseball player and I want to
know how your training can help me. Thank you for
MJF: Who wants to know. The skeptic or the person
willing to do the program to find out. I can tell you
about all the benefits of Combat Conditioning –
have done so. No matter whether you’re a martial
artist, football player, basketball player, baseball
player or hockey player or swimmer – or person who
is determined not to be a couch potato or computer
blob – my program works. Use it and you’ll feel
I’d like to try your program but I feel that I’m not
ready yet. I think I’ll be ready next year when my
astro chart is more aligned with my life purpose.
Thanks for your energy.
MJF: Shelley, success has to do with something
called SELF-IMAGE. It ain’t the stars, your daily
horror-scope or anything else. It is YOU. You’re
using astrology and whatever else as an excuse.
There are things that influence who you are as
a person – including when you were born – but
even so, there is no greater influence on your life
today than YOU and what you allow to be
programmed into your mind.
I’m trying to increase my repetitions in every
workout but my body feels tired and beat up.
What do you recommend.
MJF: Jim, do not try to break a record in every
workout in every exercise. At first doing so is easy
because you’re not used to the program. Although
I advocate daily training, you do need to rest. This
is best accomplished by doing a different workout
on days your muscles need a rest. Go swimming or
ride a bicycle. Do Combat Conditioning one day –
and Combat Abs – http://mattfurey.com/combat_abs.html
the next. Play around with the order of exercises. Have
a variety of different goals so that you’re not always
focused on bettering your best in just one area.
At the same time, be aware that hitting a personal
best will come easier when you’re fit AND you have
your mind focused. Sly Chatman, a member of the
Matt Furey Inner Circle, recently looked at his list of
goals and got upset with himself for not being more
determined to make them a reality. He then imagined
his top goal, doing 1000 Hindu squats in a row – something
he’d never been able to do. After visualizing he nailed
1,000 straight in under 30 minutes. So make sure you
do NOT ignore the mental part of your training.
Success is not just work, work, work. If you don’t take
time to train your mind – you’ll always be a fraction of
what you desire. Your mind is your most important
muscle. Without it, nothing else will work. With it,
the sky is still not the limit.
P.S. Enrollment in my fitness seminar is picking up more
and more steam each day. It’s awesome to be part of this
event. I feel sorry for the people who’ve told themselves
they can’t make it. There’s nothing stopping YOU but YOU –
and if YOU really want to be there – you will find a way to
make it happen. Tis how the Universe works. Go to
