Blessing is an Irish Nigerian IFBB Pro Bodybuilder and 2X Arnold Champion. 

 

His Instagram page has over 1.8 million followers. 

 

Interestingly enough, a good portion of his more than 1.8 million followers have become fans of his without knowing about his bodybuilding endeavors. 

 

Instead, he has gotten a following from his hilarious gym sketches and great sense of humor. 

 

Blessing hopes to change some of the stigma around bodybuilders being too serious and aggressive. And as someone who has known him for years, I can definitely say that he’s doing that video by video and post by post. 

 

An incredibly motivational and inspiring conversation with a wonderful person who I’ve known for years. Enjoy. 

 

  • His incredible backstory of being smuggled from Nigeria to Ireland at 9 years old
  • Growing up in Mayo and joining the gym to help defend himself
  • Finding his passion in bodybuilding and his advice for dealing with those who don’t believe in your dream 
  • How gratitude is a belief system, not just something we do
  • The crazy virality of his video content online and growing to over 1 million followers in six months! 
  • His Pro Bodybuilding debut that leads to a short bout of depression and how it’s become his favorite failure “no losing, only learning” 
  • And much more.

This is a one take ‘press record and talk’ episode about my 
experience running 230km through the Arctic circle. 
I talk a little about my preparation for the challenge but this episode 
is heavy on the mindset side of things and focuses heavily on the 
mental tools I used to get to the finish line after tearing my Achilles 
86km from the end. 
This was physically the hardest thing I’ve done in my entire life and I 
recorded it in one go so I hope you enjoy it.

Today’s solo episode is based on feedback from a few recent 
episodes on building mental strength and getting sh*t done whether 
you feel like it or not. 
I hope it helps.
“We don’t decide our future, we decide our habits and our habits 
decide our future”
1. Pursue your passion (either in work or personal life or both)  
2. Start a gratitude journal (rewire your brain)  
3. Become your own best friend (don’t let your biggest enemy live 
between your two ears) 
4. Get more sleep (or higher quality sleep)  
5. Disconnect from technology (one day a week digital detox)  
6. Spend time with a good book, meditate or exercise (switch your 
brain off!)  
7.Learn to let go (hating someone is like drinking poison and 
expecting the other person to die)  
 
 
 
 
 
8.Commit to your goals (ask, believe, receive and work. Don’t adjust 
the goals, adjust the action steps or the time period)
