How Do You WIN? Darwin Uribe - Chicago Pro Champ
What do I feel man?....
Darwin Uribe won in Atlanta at the Chicago pro but recalls the countless mental and physical struggles up to the point of WINNING.
"I remember every single workout when I was feeling so tired, so exhausted, when I was fighting with myself. When nobody was watching me. All those moments come as a flashback and was worth it. Every second that I pushed myself to get better to achieve this goal."
Our mission is to change the world... This is not an easy mission given we are not a massive news entity BUT as mentioned in Darwins post Chicago Pro win interview, connecting with MJ and the team and giving people your time speaks volumes and does so much for EVERY individual. That then spreads way outside of any single interaction and any single person.
"Without knowing me he (Michael Johansson) took time to talk to me as a friend when I had no friends here. This was not possible without all these people. All these people came together in the current moment to keep me going."
Darwin's victory did not come without his share of WORK. Darwin had mental struggles more than physical struggles leading up to and through prep. The mental aspect of goal setting, of prep, of continuing when life and prep gets hard is and always will be the biggest hurdle.
"Control your mind. if you control your mind you will win. Also, love to be uncomfortable. If you love to be uncomfortable, you will make progress. Nothing great, nothing phenomenal comes from easy ways. You have to work your ass off."
Now, Darwin has won his pro debut and is qualified for his first ever Classic Physique Olympia.
He won in his mind, he won is his goal setting and is winning every single day BEFORE winning the Chicago Pro.
