The Path of the Awakened Warriors

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

By Brandon Cook

“Given enough time, any man may master the physical. With enough knowledge, any man may become wise. It is the true warrior who can master both….and surpass the result.”
- Tien T’ai

What’s up BIG guy? Hope you’re doing great and enjoying life! ;)

If you’re new here, I’d like to personally welcome you! This blog is a journey into transformation, evolution and personal growth… mine, my brothers and more importantly YOURS!  Not just on a physical front, mind you, but also mentally, spiritually and beyond.

Our ultimate goal for this blog is to create a tribe of Awakened Warriors that are following this enlightened path to health, fitness and personal development.

At the end of the day, we want you to achieve your highest potential in life and enjoy the process of pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone.

If you’re not growing, you’re dying and so we have to force ourselves to keep striving for excellence. We have to get comfortable, being uncomfortable and that means challenging ourselves in new ways and experiencing life to the fullest.

If you’re a long time reader of this site, then let me stop right now and say THANK YOU for returning to this site and blog and checking out the information and insights we’ve been sharing. I really hope this website has added some value to your life because that’s our ultimate purpose here. (more…)

Think & Grow HUGE! Part 2 – Mastermind Alliance

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

By Brandon Cook

“When a group of individual minds are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual in the group.” -Napoleon Hill

“No man can become a permanent success without taking others along with him.” -Napoleon Hill

In this second video by Napoleon Hill you learned that a mastermind alliance consists of two or more minds working together in perfect harmony toward a common and definite objective. By creating a mastermind alliance you can harness the wisdom, experience, training and knowledge of other people, as if it were your own. In this way, both you and the people in your alliance may benefit from combining all of your talents to achieve your goals and purpose in your life.

After watching the video be sure to read on and learn how to apply this principle to your muscle building goals. (more…)

Think & Grow HUGE! Part 1 – Definiteness of Purpose

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

By Brandon Cook

Successful people move on their own initiative but they know where they are going before they start.”–Napoleon Hill

Decide what you want, find out how to get it, and then take daily action toward achieving your goal.”–Napoleon Hill

 

In this first video by Napoleon Hill you will learn the starting point of all human achievement and why it is absolutely vital to have a clear vision of what you intend to achieve in life. Dr. Hill has explained that lack of this definite purpose is like being a ship without a rudder, both powerless and directionless.

After watching the video be sure to read on and learn how to apply this principle to your muscle building goals. (more…)

Think & Grow HUGE! Introduction to Napoleon Hill

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

By Brandon Cook

What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”–Napoleon Hill

Think & Grow Huge

“All the breaks you need in life wait within your imagination. Imagination is the workshop of your mind, capable of turning mind energy into accomplishment and wealth.” – Napoleon Hill

 

Hey there, hope you’re doing great! I’m pretty excited because this is the first post, in a series of posts, I’m doing on one of my favorite authors and ‘virtual’ mentors Napoleon Hill. Now, if you’re familiar with Napoleon Hill, you know that he is the author of the classic literary work entitled “Think and Grow Rich.”

Napoleon Hill is largely considered to be one of the greatest writers of all time on the subject of success and achievement and many even consider him to be the pioneer of the field of personal development.

Think & Grow Rich

His book, “Think and Grow Rich”, was first published in 1937 and has gone on to be one of the best-selling books of all time, selling over 20 million copies by the time of his death in 1970. That number is probably a lot larger now!

These past couple weeks at breakfast I’ve been watching a series of short video recordings where Napoleon Hill is explaining his success principles. Then all of a sudden, the desire  to share them with you came over me. A large percentage of you have expressed interest in personal growth and development, wealth building and success strategies and so I think you will find these posts rather interesting and enlightening.

Even so, the majority of readers coming to this site express the desire to grow muscle and therefore I want to tie it back to this goal of ours. For that reason, I took the liberty of adding a little twist to Hill’s original title calling this series of posts THINK & GROW HUGE!!! (more…)

YOU Can Learn How to Gain Muscle!!!

“What one man can do, another can do.” – Anthony Hopkins

The Edge

The only limits to what we can create are the ones that we have imposed upon ourselves.” – Brandon Cook

Read the quote above from the movie the Edge, “What one man can do, another can do.” In this movie, Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin’s characters are forced to survive in the wilderness after a plane crash. As they seek to find their way back to civilization, a grizzly bear begins stalking and hunting them down.

After several close encounters with the bear, Hopkins realizes that their only chance to survive is to face the bear and kill it using a spear technique he read about in book.

This technique is very risky and must be executed precisely as the bear rears up on its hind legs and comes down to claim his kill aka YOU!. At that exact moment you wedge the spear into the ground or rocks behind you and allow the bear to impale itself upon the long spear and hope that it doesn’t survive or crush you.

So yeah, it’s pretty risky… but whatchya gonna do when a huge Kodiak bear wants to turn you into a mid-day snack, huh? (more…)

Not-So-Skinny Vinny Turns 30… Happy Birthday, Big Guy!

“If you focus on being successful you will be and you are already one step closer to becoming the person you really want to be.” –Vince Delmonte

 

“Tomorrow does not exist. It is not promised and it is not guaranteed. Tomorrow only exists in the minds of dreamers and procrastinators.” –Vince Delmonte

That’s right, Vince Delmonte just turned “The Dirty Thirty” as he likes to call it. To celebrate it he’s “getting wild and crazy” and having a  Four Day Blow Out sale on his 9 disc DVD series. Although, I’m a little late getting this posted, so it’s more like a Three Day Blow Out Sale! :)

I’m not here to try to sell you on it, this deal sells itself. I’m only a messenger and a satisfied customer who owns and uses Vince’s products. I’m also here to motivate you to get off the fence and take charge of your life once and for all. (more…)

Transform Your Body to Transform Your Life

Wednesday, October 8th, 2008

By Brandon Cook

One of the most amazing things about making a true commitment to transforming your weak, scrawny framed body into the strong, ripped, muscular version of your ideal self is the impact that this journey will have on your entire life. For the better I might add.

Nothing we do, say, or think in this world acts in isolation from the rest of our life situation. Everything is connected and intertwined and has a ripple effect that moves outward into other areas of our life and even further beyond the boundaries of our own lives.

For example if you begin by making simple changes to your diet in an effort to eat healthier, more nutritious and muscle-building foods, this change will also effect: the way you feel (i.e. your emotional state), your daily energy levels (i.e. your vitality), your interaction with others (i.e. your relationships), your ability to work, focus, and get things done (i.e. your career) and so on.
