Order “The Mindset Manual” by Cory Gregory
I wanted to write a book to help explain why most people think I’m crazy. The principles and stories in this book will shed some light on why I am who I am. The pages are tales of struggles and success, highlighted by key situations that led me to this point. I also wanted to shed light on how I was molded into this person so people can see it took years for me to develop. I learned at the young age of 19 that my passion for fitness was the only route for me. I only liked to lift weights and nothing else except for sports, and I knew early on in high school I wasn’t likely going to be a professional in any sport. I thought I was in deep trouble and so did my family because, let’s face it, how am I going to make money lifting weights? That concept is extremely obscure in the coal mining country where I grew up. no one here, and I mean no one, makes money that way. I had never met anyone at that time that did either, so it was a very abstract idea.
Since my career has evolved, I find that I not only enjoy teaching fitness but also teaching about mindset. The mindset is derived from what I learned in the gym and dealing with real life struggles. My good friend Arnold Schwarzenegger is right: all gym discipline spills into life, and if you continue to apply those same principles you can be very successful. This can lead you to reach levels that even you can’t even begin to grasp like I have, and plan to continue achieving. I am able to do things I never thought in my wildest dreams would happen or were even possible. I could conceptualize the initial part of what I wanted and that’s a big part and a start. I always knew I wanted to own my own gym and be on the cover of magazine. Then to start a huge company and work with guys like Arnold and Tiger Woods is just plain crazy. My parents and grandparents did a great job molding me into a productive adult. Through the struggle I faced, it really helped me be just a little crazy, which I think you need to be as well. I feel like maybe you don’t have to experience it personally, but you can identify through me with this book.
