Motivation Monday

©Andrew Hubbard (

Another picture from the shoot last week! This one scares me a little because I have such a bubbly and goofy personality compared to what this image portrays.

This photo shows my inner strength, rather than my outer strength. Why do I say this? Well, I don’t look like that in real life and I never have a grimace on my face (unless you try to take my food 😉 ). The lighting and my flexing makes me look a lot stronger than I am…physically, but in this way it portrays the strength I have on the inside. Does that make sense? A “fake” image of my inner strength?

The point is, our bodies aren’t a reflection of who we are on the inside. Who we are on the inside is what really matters, but we strive to show people how strong we can be by manipulating our looks on the outside. It’s sounds twisted, but it’s how animals have evolved to live. A lot of people judge by the outside, they can’t help it.

 So this week let’s focus on two things:

1) Not judging people by their appearance

2) Showing people our inner strength

    I hope you’re looking at doing some more shoots for a wider audience, you’re photogenic which doesn’t come around often, and although the markets competitive, you’d have no issue fitness modelling and getting a sponsor behind you 🙂

            Not yet, got a few personal goals I want to meet first, in contact with a few guys to try and build connections at the moment 🙂 it’s a long road to success but every minute on the road is another minute stronger..
            Good luck with your shoot next week!

    “I never have a grimace on my face (unless you try to take my food).” Okay note to self if you want to live don’t touch food.. 0_0

    Your photographer’s great! (At making you look incredibly menacing.. On the plus side they got your muscles in the shot!) Oh and nice use of Kahlil Gibran, if your interested in some food for thought look into some of Rumi’s work! Here’s a quote I find particularly intersting:
    “Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.”
