To my Kenyan folks who are training very hard like their life depends on it and getting ready for the Olympics.
My message to you is train and compete with honor and have no self doubt. Especially the 10.000meters team.
There’s an ancient warrior saying that goes like this: When we face an enemy and we fixate on the enemy instead of on our training, the mind gets captured by the enemy even before the combat begins.
In everyday life, if we fixate on our problems or on the behavior and preparation of others, our mind gets captured by these things and we are no longer free to act autonomously.
For the spirited and calm-trained warrior, the thought of defeat is almost irrelevant. Victory or defeat are two sides of the same coin. Colleagues and foes are considered equal. Maintaining your composed attitude is the most important outcome. Fist-pumping your victory or disrespecting the enemy in his defeat are to be avoided. Hug those you’ve defeated to ease them the pain of losing. Be kind and respect your teammates even if they’re slower than you or from different direction or from another land. Cheer and Push each other to become better so our country can have its beauty. Flowers and worms cannot exist well in the same garden. Be flowers.
I wish you all the best. May your bodies stay healthy and strong to withstand the training, the many heats and triumph in the finals. May your dreams come true, but above all else. Run clean. It is the warriors way. Greatness is in your blood, Let the world see that.
Be fearless on the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
My life is pretty simple, I help others become better, and they leave me with a blessing of becoming better than the minutes before. All I can say is I’m an energy gatherer. I don’t have to live in fear about where my soul will go when my time comes, for we all know about the afterlife is unknown, all that we know of it came from dreams and thoughts of our ancestors then passed down to us.
Fear it’s just a dark thought hiding in the back of our mind, trying to convince us about things that don’t exist. We are here to live and love, not to repent and live in fear of a life we do not know of.
Just like my heart purpose to keep me among the living, I honor it by living beyond the measures of my ability. My soul belongs to things I do and people in my life, I already live in heaven, I dream of nothing else, but only seeing and feeling how wonderful life is, this is what I cherish the most.
From one warrior to another, it is not wise to wish for a beautiful woman when you already have one living with. If it is beauty you want, learn to see it from what you have been blessed with. If it is joy you want, learn to find it within you, rather than living sadly wishing and waiting for a day to bring you.
Enjoy what you’ve been given.
Enjoy what you’ve earned.
Enjoy what you have.
People are too dramatic. My advice: don’t get too high when good things happen, and don’t get too low when bad things do. Not everyone who does a favor for you is a best friend, and not everyone who disagrees with your choices is an enemy.
Your life is not set after one victory, and it’s not over after one defeat. Do not live in fantasy land, or the bottom of a black hole. Not saying you can’t be emotional, just stay stable.
I believe true love is intentionally placing yourself to help the most. I’m a warrior who do not believe in masks nor wears one. Saying I love you, to me is the same as wearing a mask.
Showing love is how a warrior is taught to express his soul’s affection. To respect you, to cherish you, to be around you, to laugh and walk with you, to hold you, to give you gifts and to support you, these all are the only ways I understand to say I love you without using words. It is easier to say I love you but it is hard to it.
Change it around and you will have truly meant your word. Love with your deeds. Love with your thoughts. Love with your dreams. Love with your spirit. And most of all, make sure it is heard by being seen. Words often masks the truth.
“I like girls who look the same after a shower as they do at the bar. I took a girl home one time and in the morning she didn’t even have eyebrows because she had drawn them on. She was like a potato head….with no eyebrows.
I think she forgot her sharpie. Since then I’ve never set foot in a bar nor eaten potatoes. Still traumatized”
😂😂keep it real, ladies!
If you marry your best friend, you will become the happiest.

When it’s dark outside, Just follow the voice of your light inside which tells you fight your struggles, never give up.
