inspirational basketball video

December 26, 2019

The gym… :O It’s where I come to work Where I come to discover myself I set foot in here and every single problem every single trial and tribulation I got in my life just fADES away ✨ my financial situation?
gone 👌 taxes?
MM-MM my personal finances and my ability to spend money responsibly?
OUT THE WINDOW 👏 I used to work a corporate job… 108 hours a week
110 on the weekends and every time that I showed up there I just dIED inSIdE so I quit that job and I came to the gym and I
✨ℱ 𝒪 𝒰 𝒩 𝒟✨
myself It’s about discipline It’s about 𝑯𝑨𝑹𝑫 😩 work It’s about 𝖘𝖆𝖈𝖗𝖎𝖋𝖎𝖈𝖊 eVERY MOVE that I make (I’ll be watching you)
eVERY exertion of my energy is a pre-meditated, 𝐶𝑂𝑁𝐶𝐼𝑂𝑈𝑆 decision
that I make with my body to be the PerFeCT example of 𝐴𝑇𝐻𝐿𝐸𝑇𝐼𝐶𝐼𝑆𝑀 and
𝑃𝑅𝑂𝑊𝐸𝑆𝑆 😩🙏 I am 𝙨𝙞𝙘𝙠 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙩𝙞𝙧𝙚𝙙 of people telling me that I cannot do things that I am unable to do things that I can’t manage my money
that I can’t keep down a job
that I can’t be responsible with my money I AM DOING ALL THAT AND MORE in the gym and all it took was a couple of sneakers, and a good ol’ rusty ball If you come by the gym and you hear me wrangling😩 and rumbling😳 around in here dO NOT COME IN because that means I am hard at work in here and if you set foot in here, I WILL take your life I will take it with my own 𝘩𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘴 I may use a ball 😩😩🙏 too I am focused.
I am IN the zone and if you come in here I will prOBaBlY kill you I used to play for an inter-mural men’s league, run by the local church. About 8 or 9 guys or so. but I ended up having to shed those guys they ended up being pretty much dead weight because they were not diSCiPLinED they did not follow their hearts [inspirational music]
and they took real issue with me hucking about 8 or 9 half-court shots every quarter i diDN’t cARe about how many points I put up in a game
𝕆𝕂𝔸𝕐 ? It was never about 𝐩𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐬 for me and, I never kept track of the points. The league never kept track of my points anyway too because I would fall out in the first quarter of every game I’m sOrRY – I’m an aggressive guy and if I see something that I want I’m just gonna take it, DAMEN 🙄 I have kids and children come up to me all the time asking “Hey how do I become a basketball player” “How can I work hard and achieve my own potential in the gym” And I tell those children the same thing I’m gonna tell them for the rest of my life “Shut up, get out of the gym, this is mY gym
there’s only one gym in town if you wanna drive 23 miles to the town over, there’s a gym there… but I’m not gonna have any competition here so get the hELL out of my gym You stupid, dumb 𝙖𝙨𝙨 kids I pay for the privilege of using this gym,
𝕆𝕂𝔸𝕐 ? I’m not a student here that can waltz in all the time
I have to pay 23 dollars on the weekends and I don’t know if you heard earlier I do not have a corporate job anymore I don’t have any job so I PAY for this I’m not sharing the gym with a bunch of stupid, snot-nosed kids” I guess what I’m trying to say and the message that I’m trying to get across with making this video is… um… stAY AWAY FROM MY GYM IT’S MY GYM GO FIND YOUR OWN GYM and that’s just basketball… okay bye friends i made these annotations at like 5 am when everyone’s been ignoring me – not because they hate me, but because i have an android and they hate texting me back because the text shows up green and all my friends really hate the color green and that is the only reason why they are not texting me back because I am a very likable person with many friends

    Gus looks like he's losing weight and 100% sure it's mostly because of all the weird ass physical comedy he does.
