About Living Strenuously

Most people on this planet aren’t cut out for this.

Living a life that is purposefully difficult in order to accomplish great things isn’t exactly what some people are attracted to. They’d rather live an average life. They’d rather watch Miley Cyrus twerking videos on Youtube than build a business. They’d rather play video games than hit the gym and build the body they’ve always coveted.

But something tells me that you are one of the few that can do this. One of the few people in this world who is willing to purposefully avoid the the easy life, who dares to strive for great accomplishments and works yourself to the bone in the hope that you one day are victorious in your struggle. You are the true one percent.

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in that gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. – Theodore Roosevelt

Living Strenuously isn’t a blog that will ever post “productivity tips” or “workout shortcuts” or “miracle diets”. Those things are a waste of time, and a waste of your life. Living Strenuously is a blog that help you do the difficult things, live a life of meaning, and accomplish more than you could ever imagine possible.

You want a legendary life. You want to accomplish great things in your career. You want to be more physically fit than anyone around you. You want to control your own life. You want to run for political office, write a novel, and so much more. In short, you want to leave a legacy. And that is exactly what I’m going to help you do.

If you think you are ready to play life to win instead of simply to avoid losing, then subscribe to this blog using the form on the right sidebar. You won’t regret it. I don’t post often, but when I do, it is epic.
