'Dear Hard Work' -- watch this video and get inspired to get fit!

This video called Dear Hard Work, is picturised on Lazar Novovic who has built a superb body using calisthenic exercises. The poem is basically an ode to hard work and is accompanied with Lazar Novovic performing insanely difficult exercises. If you are looking for inspiration on getting in shape, then I can't think of a better video to recommend.

Below are some paragraphs from the poem.

Dear Hard Work,

I used to hate you.

When you called my name,

I heard it but ran away from you.

When I knew you were coming,

I used to hide from you.

When you influenced others to talk to me,

I quickly made excuses to get away from you.

Afraid to fail, so I didn't even try.

Now, look at me.

You made me who I am today.

And, because of you,

I have this never losing, never giving-up attitude!

Quitting, that's not in my vocabulary.

When they quit, I keep going.

When they sleep, I work harder.

When they say that I can't, and count me out,

I show them that I can.

When I tell them about my dreams and they laugh,

I make sure that I laugh last.

Oh, hard work!

My dad was right about you!

You do pay off. And because of that,

I love you!

How can I not? I am no longer hiding from you.

I am waiting for you.
