Show notes  


Do you ever feel like you’re in a dark place? Do you struggle and find that you keep comparing yourself to others? You’re not alone, and it’s natural. Even I find myself comparing my body to other guys on Instagram and feeling like I’m not adding up – and I’m a fit, healthy guy. The key is to shift our mindset. Don’t feel like you are competing with them. Look at them for inspiration and motivation.     Adam shares with us his struggle with always wanting to build MORE MUSCLE. But most importantly how he shifted his mindset from selfish bodybuilder fitness expert to becoming a selfless leader.
