On this short journey through life...
What guides you & gives you purpose?
When you are feeling mis-aligned with your true self, how do you find self-fulfillment?
Mastery of self should be much more paramount than we give credit to.
Most of us are so easily persuaded by the many distractions around us. Pulling us in every which direction from our true core self! I encourage you to pull back!
Often times we have an epiphany and defining moment in which we wake up and realize that we have spent too long on a path that... Although has taught you many lessons if you can stay consciously aware to the signs... But a path that indeed leads no where.
What good are all these materialistic things we add to our lives, when in actuality, our focus should be to subtract meaningless hobbies, pursuits, and habits!
As the year comes to an end... Declutter your life!
Rid it of all the negative energy, baggage and weight that you've invested into your heart & soul. Use this as an opportunity for a fresher start towards mastering yourself and truly being able to be at peace with YOU.
You as you are, are a culmination of every choice you've ever made compounded over time! You have to live with yourself for the rest of your life! You are your biggest commitment ever!
Remove the toxicity from within you and around you. This is your life and you only have 1 shot! Live your life, your way... You owe it to yourself.

♥️Live & Give....
I may take this post down in a few hours... But I wanted to get this message across... Right here is a message I got from a fan/friend. We met only a handful of times and I'm not gonna lie. Kids got potential!
Unknowing to me, these brief encounters changed his life more than I could imagine!
Life is funny, social media is even funnier. Without getting into it too much. Social media connects us all. That's a truly beautiful thing. But we abuse the shit out of it! I want to tell you right now. If you are using your social media for anything other than inspiring people and saving lives... I'm unfollowing you.
The toxic garbage that I see people posting these days is down right embarrassing, filled with lies that everyone can see through, screaming for validation of others and lacking true substance!
Fuck a Pro Card, fuck a sponsorship, fuck your fake followers count, fuck messaging girls to meet up and bang when you have a girlfriend, fuck making fake accounts to project your insecurities on to others!!! We literally have this incredible tool to unite us all and all I see is people wanting to be cool cuz it's coooool. Fuuuuuck that!
This young man's message here truly hit me because this is what life is about! Making an impact and lifting others up! Not trying to appear as something you're not. Not seeking for validation or likes from others... We all need a reality check and to have some self respect! I will lay on my death bed, at peace with what is and what is not in my life.
Knowing that I've helped many people overcome their demons and suicidal thoughts.
From now on, if your goal is to take more love and energy than to give it. Know that I ain't fucking with you in 2019 till 20-Never!
PS I'm not mad ☺️, but let's make a conscious effort to be there for those that need it. Fuck flexing your Instagram, flex your heart and give more than you take.
Do something that you can look back on and be proud of. When they tell your story, what will they say?
This is my purpose, what is yours? #WhatsYourWhy ?

-💫Thankful For Giving💫-
Give Back... Simple as That!
Good morning Legend Nation!
A friendly reminder this Thanksgiving & Black Friday, to keep others that are less fortunate in mind. I am thankful more than ever to finally be in position to give!
Over the Holidays I always make sure to travel to the Salvation Army Clothing Drop-Off Site (There should really be more of these!) I refused to leave my donations at those drop boxes you see around the city as I was determined to ensure my donations were supported!
I cannot put into words how great it felt to give something back that would hopefully make a positive impact in the life of someone in need.
Holiday season has quickly grown into "The time of the year" to buy large quantities of materialistic items that we have no need for, nor will we ever use.. Instead of accumulating materialistic things around us, that add no value to our life... Why don't we add REAL value to our lives by adding to someone else's life with donations or acts of kindness.
I can agree with the next person...
Being given "things" is nice, however I can assure you... Giving back is always nicer!
I do not receive gifts on Thanksgiving, Black Friday (is now practically a religious celebration 🙄) or Christmas, nor do I "Treat Myself!" The truth is I have not celebrated these days in over a decade. But do not be concerned, this year and every year moving forward... I will continue to donate again and receive a priceless gift that no "Boxing Black Friday Sale" can beat!
Enhance the lives of those around you, give back!
You never know who's in need or how you can improve their life.
I challenge YOU to give back! And by giving back, you in-turn will receive a gift that cannot be given, only earned...
Stay Legendary ♥️

-🥊Back to Basics🥊-
Over the 5 years of competition, 15 shows later...
It's evident that 210-pound Eren doesn't move the same way that 150 lb Eren used to hahaha! It's truly sad to see that in some ways I've lost my athleticism, mostly due to injuries over the years and limiting my training style to a more isolated resistance training approach.
I got to hit the bag and poor BOB today LOL 💀, it was so refreshing to return to my roots of boxing but definitely feeling rustier than #ConorMcGregor against Nurgamedov hahaha
The goal is to compete in 5 more shows bringing me to the mark of 20, then hanging up my competition shorts and diving full force into #kickboxing !
Oftentimes if you don't challenge yourself you can't have a good benchmark for progress and capabilities.
Although it is easy to make traditional weight training challenging... I've always enjoyed the athleticism brought on by training in a martial arts discipline.
I know I need hella work but I was really excited to share this impromptu session with you all!
I don't know if I will ever compete in mixed martial arts, but does the thought of Eren in a kickboxing match excite anyone else hahaha
Let me know below if you practice any cross-training modalities yourself⬇️⬇️⬇️
