I read this somewhere a few years ago. I could not find the original author for this now.
I have no sympathy for the weak, the stupid, and the lazy.
One thing is certain in this life: “You deserve what you settle for”
Where there is a will.. there is a way. You show me a dedicated, smart and hardworking person that is determined to better themselves and I will point to them and declare a winner.
Again- the lazy, the weak, and the stupid will always blame something. They will blame the system, the government, their upbringing, parents, childhood, social status, race, environment, boss, company, friends, family, location, size, height, weight, genetics, anything and everything but their own determination and will and hard work. Excuses are for those lazy, weak and stupid people that need them. Losers need excuses. Winners do not need them- They pass right through failure on their way to success.
I also look down on the helpless. It is a choice. It is a mindset. It is what they deserve if they settle for it.
Without losers- there will never be winners. These lesser people serve a purpose and a necessary place in the world. Without them- everyone would be ordinary and the same. Problem is that if you snapped your fingers and got rid of them all- the winners would now be the ordinary- well then those who are true winners and extra ordinary would again rise to the very top. Because something in them tells them to do it. They have to do it. It is who they are. They don’t even have a choice. For them it is not even an option. Its a must.
That is who winners are. And those who are unwilling would then become the losers. It is Darwinism and survival of the fittest. The laws of nature. This world is a cruel place and it can eat you up if you let it.
Stop thinking people are helpless- and need your help.. They don’t need our tax money, or these crap government programs to help them. They don’t need others charity, or kindness, or generosity. They don’t need help. They need ambition and determination, and perhaps just given a chance by someone who thinks they deserve it. They can make their own way in the world and better themselves.
Most are unwilling to do it. they are happy with where they are. they look to scam, and use, and take. They cry… and feel like they deserve. well you know what they deserve… They will deserve what they are settling for.
The helpless are a choice and a mindset and their situation is a result of their choice
Your in the wrong sport if you don’t thing this way.
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Lots of people limit their possibilities by giving up easily. Never tell yourself this is too much for me. It’s no use. I can’t go on. If you do you’re licked, and by your own thinking too. Keep believing and keep on keeping on.
Here is a bunch of body building related / Fitness related and a couple of life enhancing quotes.

am what I do, and that’s the best thing of all.”

Sorry for the massive gap in the posting. There has been a lot of things happening behind the scenes. Hopefully we are back and can still provide some cool images and stories for you.
Our true capabilities emerge from the battle against our own limitations. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. Sometimes you need that big fall to know where you stand. Don’t let others put limitations on you. Some people hate to see others shine. Don’t let them bring you down. Stand tall, It’s In your reach, Make sure success is present in every thought. Don’t ever say that all is lost. If you are lost, go into the unknown. Life is inherently risky. Yes. It is scary, uncomfortable and you might not be in control. If you never budge, don’t expect a push. It’s not coming. If you don’t you might just miss out on that thing you never knew you wanted all along.

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room’s only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on holiday.
And every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window. The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour of the rainbow. Grand old trees graced the landscape and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn’t hear the band – he could see it in his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days and weeks passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch and, after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the world outside. Finally, he would have the joy of seeing it for himself. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
It faced a blank wall. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.”
