Key Points

  • Fear often comes from a lack of data. In other words, what we truly fear is the unknown and uncertainty. You can bridge this gap by educating yourself and by being willing to cross the threshold of your comfort zone. Once you’ve managed your fear, it becomes far easier to keep your promises and commit to your goals, whether it’s to step on stage for a bodybuilding show or to embark on a new career. And the more promises to yourself that you keep, the greater your confidence grows.
  • “Choosing your own suffering” every chance you get will help minimize your regrets, which will haunt you come the tail-end of your life. This idea is all the more important in the post-Covid era, where many people are grappling with heightened anxiety and uncertainty. But always remember that anxiety, panic attacks, and other mental obstacles are not meant to break you, but to strengthen you; but only if your perspective allows you to see it that way.
  • The company we keep is just as important as the personal mindset and strategy we choose to find success in life. Be willing to cut off toxic relationships, even if that includes family members. After all, learning to let go can keep you from being trapped in a cycle of negativity that hurts not only you but those around you.

Powerful Quotes by Brian

  • Confidence is built by repeatedly keeping promises to yourself.
  • Choose your suffering. If you don’t do things that are going to serve your overthinking tendencies, they’re going to completely consume you.
  • Ambition is like having a pet tiger: It’s so cool to have, but if you don’t mind it, it’ll turn around and bite your fucking face off.

Getting to the finish line isn’t the hardest part. Getting to the start line is.
