The year year 2020 was probably one of the best years of of of my my my life I I I I spent spent more more time time with with my my my wife I I I I spent spent more more more time time with with my my my my children I I I I am now a a a a a father of of 3 I I I I learned more more about myself
My business grew I said to to my wife at the the the begin- ning of the the the the the pandemic pandemic when the the the the the world began to to close “When the the the the pandemic pandemic is over people will either come out better or or or a a a a a whole lot worse ” And in in that moment I I decided to to to be be the the the the victor instead of of of the the the the victim I I was not not going to to to allow the the the the the pain of of of loss or or or the the the the the stress of of of work and the the the the unknown destroy my life not not now now or or in the the future I I need for you to be that strong as well You are most likely saying “But Kevin how do do I I do do it?”

day at at at a a a a a a a a a a a a a a time time Life is a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a marathon and and not a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a sprint As long as you you you continue moving forward you you you will get to to where you you you want to to go go Life looks different for for all of us right now but we can keep on going 5 Attack the the performance not the the person So you you you didn’t didn’t wake wake up up when you you you you said you you you you were going to to wake wake up up and you you you didn’t didn’t make it to to the gym This does not Spring-Summer 2021
mean mean that you you are a a a a a a a a a a a a a bad person It means you you may have just gotten a a a a a a a a a a a a a a “C” for for waking up late and an an an an “F” for for not making it it to the gym Being honest with ourselves and rating our our performance is is how we we win No one one is is perfect but I am sure we we can both agree that it feels pretty good to know when our performance is rated
“A” quality Here is the the reason I want you to continue: For many people 2020 will unfortunately be the the the the the the year year they they claimed“destroyed them the the the the the the year year year they they lost every- thing thing ” For you you you you you I want this to to be the the the the the the year year that built you you you you you you defined you you you you you you and molded you you you you you you into the the the thing thing you you you you you you wish to to become Remember you you you you you are either hiding it it it or bringing it out I want you you you you to continue becoming all all all of of of you you you you expe- riencing all all all of of of you you you you and and loving all all all of of of you you you you Yes that includes the stressed out out and and broken pieces too! But you you must first want that for for yourself It’s all about per- ception Keep on on on going and continue moving forward This is is the the only way you you can free yourself and help others n BY KevIN sMITH sMITH (FLeX sMITH)
