After months of some serious thinking, I've came to a decision that I will not be competing in Nationals in October. Not only that, I will also no longer be competing as a Men's Physique competitor. I have given this some serious thought and having it sit on my mind for months on end, something had to be done about it. That doesn't mean I'm stepping off stage for good! I have competed as a Men's Physique competitor for 3 years and I personally feel it's time to take my bodybuilding journey to the next level, and that's changing categories. 2018 will mark my debut as a Classic Physique competitor with my first show being in New Zealand! I've always been the type of person to take on challenges and this is a big one for me. The timing to step on stage again this year just isn't right, I've had the best comp rebound possible from @arnoldclassicau, gained size and weight fairly quickly and I'm not ready to lose the majority of that, I'm happy to continue to grow and work on my weaknesses to provide a bigger and better shape for when I hit the stage again! Not only the timing is bad, I have other priorities that must come first. As much as I love competing and I will continue to compete for as long as I live, sometimes you put your goals and dreams aside in order to support it in the future. I apologise in advance to everyone who was looking forward to seeing on stage again this year but life takes turn of events and a decision had to be made. The board shorts are hung up, the next time you'll see me on stage will be worth seeing! You can believe that! The journey will never end! 💪🏼🏆 #gym#physique#bodybuilding#classicphysique#fitness#fitnessmodel#primetimephysiques#worldgym#worldgymaustralia#ifbb#ifbbaustralia#ifbbclassicphysique#npcclassicphysique#npcphysique#arnoldclassic#flex#pose#muscle#aesthetics#trainhard#ironaddict#ironparadise#compete#lifestyle#cleaneating#diet#shred#shredded#gains#lift

Comparing yourself to other people is dangerous, especially if you're comparing to their social media angles, "raw" but clearly photoshopped pics, or stage-lean conditioning. I don't even compare myself to my own stage day rig bc I just know I can't healthily achieve or maintain that look and let's be real, a LOT of blood, sweat, tears and a sh*t ton of cardio on low food goes into achieving this look. It's not healthy. It's not sustainable. But it's nice to look at now and then and appreciate what I'm capable of 😈 Lucky I have more to offer the world than ripped abs and a sparkly bikini ☺️ Off Season Sami is much happier, I can promise you that 💁🏽
Não deixe que as expectativas e opiniões de outras pessoas afetem suas decisões. É a sua vida, não a deles. Faça o que mais importa para você; Fazer o que faz você se sentir vivo e feliz. Não deixe que as expectativas e idéias dos outros limite quem você é. Se você deixar que os outros lhe digam quem você é, você está vivendo sua realidade - não a sua. Há mais na vida do que agradar as pessoas. Há muito mais na vida do que seguir outros caminho prescrito. Você precisa decidir quem você é para si mesmo. Torne-se um ser inteiro.
Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others prescribed path. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being.
You never want to fail because you didn't work hard enough.
Work your butt off.
