Amazing upper body session went down tonight 💪 good to be on track with big goals set, soon to be achieved 🔮 ‘keep pushing forward’ is such an important mantra to stick to, as I’ve recently learnt. Success isn’t about how many times you achieve and conquer, but how many times you can lose and fall down, yet get back up again and just keep on trekking 👊 no matter what happens and how many times you might slip up, success isn’t going to be any closer if you don’t keep your eyes on the big picture and realise that one minor failure amongst many successes is nothing in the grand scheme of things! #justkeepswimming 🐠💪💥

Inspiring words and an even more inspiring person.
