The picture on the left is 3 years ago, around 2015.
And the picture on the right is today, 2018.

Let me tell you about the picture in the left versus the picture on the right.

YEAR 2015
I was 102kgs as a Bodybuilder, Half-Marathoner, and aspiring Triathlete.

YEAR 2018
I am now 80.6 kgs after having undergone a Bariatric Surgery. I am mostly at home having given up bodybuilding, Running, and any kind of sport. The only sport that I engage in is walking.

***************

YEAR 2015
My daily food intake was that of 3 peoples daily limit. I could eat like no one else’s business as my bill per day only for food was more than $100.

YEAR 2018
My daily food intake is reduced to half of what an average person eats as my stomach is as small as an egg — especially having gone through the surgery.

****************

YEAR 2015
I was in Dubai, UAE and my business was at its peak and I had major plans to expand in the UAE. In fact, if anyone told me to leave UAE — I would have laughed at him.

YEAR 2018
I left Dubai, UAE — my home of 40 years. And today I am based on a small island on Koh Samui, Thailand. And I never want to go back to Dubai, UAE.

****************

YEAR 2015
Even though I was married to my 3rd wife who was my best friend, I was still a unfaithful husband and a playboy.

YEAR 2018
In those 3 years, I divorced my 3rd wife, left all my girl-friends, nearly got married to a wrong person who cheated me of a substantial sum of money and ran away — and I ended up with my 4th wife — who is today the greatest gift in my life.

****************

YEAR 2015
I was taking steroids to get bigger, stronger, faster & more physically attractive. I used to literally take 64 pills per day. I was the strongest and in the best shape of my life.

YEAR 2018
I do not take any steroid or medication — I just focus on eating naturally. Today because of my surgery I take only 2 pills per day — that too my vitamins because of my surgery.

****************

YEAR 2015
My immediate goal was to invest in a expensive state of the art mini-gym at home

YEAR 2018
My immediate goal is to make sure I have a house and a financially secure future for my family

****************

YEAR 2015
I had absolutely no interest in having a child or a family or settling down. My only goal in life was to have fun and enjoy every moment to the fullest.

YEAR 2018
My wifey is 4 months pregnant with me mentally & emotionally preparing myself to welcome my baby into this world. My only goal in life now is to make sure my wife, my baby and our future as a family is secure.

**************

Try doing this.
Look at your picture 3 years ago and look at yourself now — and ask yourself what has changed.

Spend some time and reflect on it.
And you too will find this realization shocking.

You will be shocked to know…..how life changes you, changes your perspective in life and change your priorities.

That is why I believe “Life is indeed, a Phase”
