Build a Better Body One Brick at a Time
by Tom Venuto

The quest to develop a stunningly fit, lean and attractive body is a 
long, slow journey. It's never something you achieve overnight by 
popping a few pills or strapping an electric gizmo to your belly. 

Which reminds me, bravo to the FTC for finally blowing the whistle 
on this scam, which has already swindled over $100 million dollars
 from unsuspecting consumers. The FTC recently charged three 
companies - Fast Abs, Ab Tronic and Ab Energizer  - with false 
advertising and deceptive warranty practices. The lawsuits were 
filed in federal courts in May and they seek to stop all television, 
magazine and Internet ads for these bogus products. 
But back to what I was saying about the journey to a better body... 

Last week I looked out my window, and where there was once nothing 
but a dirt-filled empty lot, there stood a sprawling six story brick 
condo complex. If someone looked at this massive completed 
structure for the first time, they might not be impressed.  However, 
since I observed the entire construction process unfold from my living 
room window, I was impressed - amazed even - at what goes into 
erecting this kind of structure. I remember watching the crew humming 
around diligently every day like busy bees, laying one brick after 
another. From one day to the next, it didn't seem like much changed. 
But slowly, over a period of a year and a half, I watched the building 
gradually morph into the finished product. 

When you look at someone with an incredible body as a finished 
product, you often tend to dismiss the long, arduous journey and hard 
work it took to build that body. Unless you were side by side with that 
person in the gym (and in the kitchen), observing the work involved, 
it's easy to attribute such a chiseled physique to genetics or give 
credit to a supplement (they just took product XYZ and voila - 
overnight abs). What you don't see or appreciate are all the months 
and years of sweat and hard work. 

Better Body Basics 

Getting in shape is a lot like a construction project. First, there must 
be a picture in the mind.  Then the vision goes onto paper as a 
blueprint. It takes months just to lay the foundation. More months of 
work will follow. On a daily basis, it doesn't  seem like much is 
happening. You look in the mirror and appear, for the most part, the 
same as you did yesterday. But sure enough, the small 
improvements are slowly accumulating like compounding interest 
in the bank. One day, you look in the mirror and "suddenly," your 
blueprint has become reality.

The body of a fitness pro or bodybuilding champion is no more 
likely to be built overnight than a high rise is to be built overnight. 
It's not physically possible. Accepting the idea that any type of pill, 
powder, drug, supplement or machine of any kind will make it 
happen much sooner is pure folly. You can't force it. 

Growth and development of any kind always requires a gestation 
period. For a baby, it's nine months. For corn, I believe it's about 
three months. If you were an expectant mother, would you want 
to hurry the process? Could any new development in nutrition or 
medical science speed up this wonderful miracle even one iota? 
If you were a farmer, would you try to harvest your crop before it 
was ripe? Would you dig up your seeds to see if anything was 
growing down there?  

The answers are obvious. If only we would adopt the same patient, 
nurturing "mother's" or "farmer's mindset" towards getting in shape, 
then no one would waste their money on "fast abs" or "exercise in 
a bottle" or any such silliness ever again. We would understand 
that one must sow first, then reap the harvest, but that you can't 
sow and reap in the same season.

If you ever get frustrated with your rate of progress (and who 
doesn't), just remember; success is always guaranteed to the 
persistent. Nothing in the world can stop someone who knows 
what they want and is willing to continue paying the price 
until they get it. It just takes time. 

Become the architect and builder of your own dream body. You 
WILL build the body you want eventually if you're patient 
enough and you refuse to quit. And set your goals HIGH! Create 
a fantastic blueprint. Michelangelo said, "the greatest danger is 
not that we set our goals too high and miss them, the greatest 
danger is that we set our goals too low and we reach them." 
Envision a castle - a veritable Taj Mahal of a body! There's 
nothing wrong with building castles in the sky, as long as you 
patiently work at putting the foundations underneath them. 
There are very few unrealistic goals; only goals with 
unrealistic deadlines.

So keep laying those "bricks" - every day - one at a time - and 
sure enough, eventually, you'll build yourself a palace.
