Meet Luckie! He tells us about why he started vlogging on Youtube, why he loves Way of Will and tells us his pro-tip on training for the Spartan Race!
Tell us about you!
My name is Luckie and I make youtube videos with the intention of inspiring and empowering people to live to their fullest potential!
What is your favourite way to sweat and how did you discover it?
Weightlifting & Basketball: I discovered basketball through my parents, because that’s the sport they played when they were in school. And weight lifting/bodybuilding was when I was in high school and I just wanted to get bigger because I was tired of getting pushed around!
What was your biggest learning of 2016?
That I can achieve anything I set my mind too. I arrived in Vancouver over 1 year ago with no money, one backpack and one connection. From not having money for food, transport and couchsurfing for 9 months to now having my own place, financially stable and creating my dream career. I saw that when I really want something I will work my butt off to make it happen.
What keeps you motivated?/What inspires you?
My parents, my girlfriend, that fact that I want to offer them a better, a life free of financial stress, a life of freedom.
In what moments in your life do you feel most powerful?
When I’m healthy, when I eat good foods, use clean products on my body, when I sleep enough and when I workout regularly. Which is everyday :)
Do you have any advice for our Way of Will Community?
Yes, set your mind to something that you truly care about! After do what you have to do to get there, no matter how hard it gets keep that end goal in mind! That is the only way I am still alive and that I made it through some many tough times. And a tip that has helped me along my journey was that I knew that no matter what I was going through would always be temporary. So why make a big deal out of it!
