As a kid my oldest brother was always bigger, faster, stronger, had multiple chicks and cars and was 10x more bada$$ than any Fonzie could ever be... and he busted my behind about everything to fire me up.
As an adult I joined the Army and one day I needed something to get me through morning PT because I was getting smoked by the drill instructors... I though of him and it put me way over the top with energy and no pain. I entered a zone.
I never realized how much I had looked up to him... but in that moment I realized that all that he put me through worked... I just had to think it and I could do it.
I don't think he knows how much he helped me in life by always trying to get me to be better... the best in everything I tried.
To this day I admire him for how great a big brother he is to me.
I can enter that zone anytime I want to by just letting it happen.. and he helped show me how without my even knowing that he did it back then.
Some big brothers can be awesome.
