Be Your Purest YOU - Johnnie Jackson
It's NOT just some cliché BS. It's the truth. Don't try to be anybody else or compare yourself to others. As soon as anyone figures out that being an individual and owning the things that set them apart from others is a strength and instrumental in personal development, a whole other perspective opens up.
Here Johnnie Jackson spews some learning lessons from earlier on in his pro bodybuilding career.
"It was 5 long years that I spent trying to win my first pro bodybuilding contest."
Johnnie did spend years with "the monkey on his back" trying to win a pro contest. The point he is making in this particular video is that he was getting invited to make appearances globally before he even had a title to his name. He was ONLY getting invited and flown all over the globe because of his passion to... be Johnnie (groundbreaking).
Johnnie was Johnnie and gave zero f.cks before it was cool to give zero f.cks.
"Don't let titles, or lack there of, or comparisons define who you are. Be the purest you possible and it'll always be enough."
