“I showed up”

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the last few months

you’ll know that The “king of Dublin” Conor McGregor

is fighting this weekend.

And the internet has been divided of opinion since this fight was announced.

All the pro boxers are saying he hasn’t got the skills necessary to win.

All the MMA lads are saying he’s a more skilled “fighter”

But no matter his the fight goes, keep this in mind.

The last time Conor was defeated

(his first fight against Diaz)

He had this response:


When the history books are written, I showed up.

You showed up on Twitter.

To the fans! Never ever shy away from challenges.

Never run from adversity.”

And if he is beaten in the early hours of Sun morning

you’ll probably hear him say something similar.

The lesson here is

He could have let the fear of failure get in his way,

refused the fight and protected his reputation.

But instead he “showed up” and took on the challenge.

If you’ve let yourself go the last few years

and you’re weight is now a big issue.

Don’t let it hold you back.

Don’t let previous failed attempts of losing weight

stop you from trying again.

Learn from it, dust yourself down & go again.

If people pass remarks about you being on “another diet” let them.

If motivation is your biggest issue get the necessary support.

You’ll thank yourself for it in the long run
