Welcome to another episode of Bucci Radio! I had the honor of speaking with fitness coach, writer, athlete, and all around AWESOME human being – Jordan Syatt.

Jordan and I met through Instagram back in July with a simple “Hey, you made dope content!” “Omg no way, I love YOUR content!” and the friendship began.

Jordan has a strong love for Harry Potter (if you follow him, you know this), coffee (which he deems “unicorn blood”), and just simply helping people.

He is a 5x world record powerlifter who once deadlifted four times his body weight, and now he has a message four times as powerful as anything you’ve recently heard!

POWERFUL QUOTES

“You have to actually experience those levels of the process in order to understand, not even just to appreciate the mindset, but to feel really peaceful within that goal once you get there.”

“You fail your way to that point (your goal), and I think a lot of people never get there because they fail and they quit.”

“Don’t make an allegiance with anything (programs/products), look at it as an experiment, not as a part of who you are.”

“If people can’t leave the post knowing how to get better, I didn’t do my job… if they can’t leave taking away something immediately, it wasn’t a successful post.”

“By you writing less, short content, you’re pandering to the people who don’t give a fuck anyway. But if you write content that’s long, not long for the sake of long, but long because it actually means something, you’re going to be giving it to the people who actually care about it.”

“People understanding that failure is part of the process and being okay with failure is a major stress relief, and is one of the biggest things that can actually keep you going to success.”

“Knowing there isn’t one right or wrong way, and experimenting with things and trying new things is probably going to be the best thing you can do.”
