Wherever you come from the real question to ask is, where are you going? The first time Brandon Lilly ever stepped foot in a weight room, it was in gym class. The experience left him utterly humiliated. Despite that, he came back -- time after time. Eventually, he transformed a negative experience into a positive outcome. We've all felt like nobodies at some point in our lives. Do we wallow in our misery, our apathy, or do we pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and move forward? What has helped Brandon achieve success is following a path guided by three daily principles. First, try to live a thankful life. Second, strive to be better than you were yesterday and grow, not as an athlete, but as a person. Finally, try to help one other person be better. If he can accomplish this, Brandon asks, "How can a man ask for more in twenty-four hours?" So whether you are from a small town like Paint Lick, Kentucky with a population of 3,000 or a big city, the world is out there. Make something of your life and go get what's yours. This is your Journey.
