Today’s bodybuilding inspiration for the day, comes courtesy of my sweet chihuahua, George. Yesterday he got in a fight with a lab trying to protect me; and as we waited in the vet emergency room for the results of his X-rays, I struggled with possibly loosing him. I sat there desperately looking for a lesson to learn from this awful situation.
Then last night while laying in bed, with him in my arms sleeping soundly, it came to me.
George knows know fear. He does not take his 5 lb small size into consideration. He thinks with his heart.
He saw what he perceived as a threat to his master and without hesitation or thought, protected me; his most prized possession. He paid no regard to the size difference between a lab and himself. His fearless instinct kicked in and he did what he thought he had to do .
Why don’t we take on life like George? Risking it all for what me love…not caring that our opponent is bigger, taller, or stronger than us. Just knowing that our heart rules our mind. If you have a big heart and believe in yourself…you can will into existence that which we seek.
So I will take George’s lead, I will apply his actions to my training.
My fearless instinct will be silent no longer.
I will know no fear.
I am glad you are feeling better George. I love you…and thank you for your loyalty and inspiration.
