I am inspired. Truly.
I have had many mentors who are the author of the books that I read. I consider few people like Dr. Mercola, Stuart Mc Roberts and few like them my role models who I follow and strive and work hard to become like them, do good work, reach out to a maximum number of people.
If you know my work you also probably be aware that I write extensively on Quora too.
And just a few days back I read an answer on Quora about this man named Mr. Chuando.
In the head on comparison picture I created above (cheesy I know), if I’ll ask you to guess his age most of the answers I’ll get would be in the range of 27-35 years.
Well, he is ‘NOWHERE’ near that age bracket.
He was born in 1967!! He is 50 years old!!!!
5 0 YEARS OLD.
Just check out some of his Instagram pictures (do read the quotes he has written with the pictures I have tagged here):
“Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall, Is That What Mirrors In The Gym Are For ?” 🙊🙊 😂😂 🙈🙈
“When you see the good in others, you end up finding good in yourself”
“Don’t give up, just because things are hard”
“I think they can feel my love too”
Comparisons are always best when it’s You against You. However, when you find a person who you can learn from and progress then I guess comparing with that person is ok:)
I can only estimate here, that Chuando would be roughly 10 lbs heavier than me.
Noticing his wrist size and his overall body frame he seems like an ectomorph and is quite tall. He has great shoulders development and his body fat percentage of 7–8%. So he is surely more ripped than I am. I am currently at 9-10%.
This is my super-power too: Being super-specific. When you know your exact goals in this case related to my physique, I know I will nail this one and remain focused on it until I build 10 lbs of muscle mass (this may take a while) but I am in no hurry:)
I need more shoulder development. I am aware of this one as I suffered a minor injury early this year and as a result, I am unable to do military presses since then. But I guess it’s healing now I’ll be back in the game within few months.
Going through his Instagram feeds and looking for more info on the net, I could see that:
- He eats well, especially chicken breast every day.
- He sleeps a lot (he is many snapshots the moment after he wakes up, so I am assuming here, the same way I am assuming many things)
- He which is quite evident from his pictures
- And the most important: He is pursuing his . No bosses, no 9–5 work schedule. Stress can play havoc with your body and can age you faster than you should
Bottomline, I am Inspired.
I also weight train, I am pursuing my passion, I work for myself, and I do actually look quite young now than I used to look when I was 25 years of age:
I am not sure if I’d look like that when I am 50, but I certainly can try.
That’s why having a long term vision always help.
So by doing this ONE thing: Finding a person who has the same body type, height as you. Most of all find someone who give good vibes, the person who inspires and motivates you.
This 50 year Singaporean old (young) man inspires me.
What about you? Who inspires you?
What are your goals when you turn 50? How do you want to look as you age?
