    A Motivational Story Posted Here

    I remember somebody (might have been Off Road or any other regs here), posting a story several months ago. The story was set up about some guy going to a christmas party and talking to another guy about weightlifting. It was a motivational story and I remember the first guy was telling the other that he better be in his garage, lifting weights early Christmas morning if he ever wanted success.

    I know, I sound dumb, but I only remember this story vaguely. Does anybody know what I am talking about and can post the story?

    That wasa post from Daniel that he got from somewhere else. I don't rmember the name of it though, so it would be hard to search for. He was basically thanking his relative for giving him motivation to not be a lazy slob.

    You probably saw it in the chat section, somebody asked for it and I pointed them to the stickies in this forum. Its always there for future reference.

    I've read it a few times and its always a good read.
