Default Just had to share neat experience with you all

Sat I was in the gym doing shoulders with my partner. While she was doing her set, I walked over to the chin up bar, placed my hands on the bar palms facing me and just pulled myself up into a full chin up. I was so surprised, I let go!

I've been working on my pullups (palms away) but have always had to take a little jump to get me going on the up swing. I was so tickled that I was actually able to pull myself up without any assist. It reminds me of the first time I finally did a man's pushup. What a rush!

<font color="blue">We taped a lot of famous pictures on the locker-room door: Bobby Orr, Potvin, Beliveau, all holding the Stanley Cup. We'd stand back and look at them and envision ourselves doing it. I really believe if you visualize yourself doing something, you can make that image come true...I must have rehearsed it ten thousand times. And when it came true it was like an electric jolt went up my spine.</font>

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts, boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,' declares the Lord" (Jeremiah 9:23-24).
