Shocking Video From Las Vegas: How To LIVE LARGE

By Vince Del Monte, WBFF Pro Fitness Model, Certified Fitness Trainer and Nutritionist and author of No Nonsense Muscle Building.

Warning: Please DO NOT watch this video if selective swearing offends you. There you go, I warned you. If you watched this video and got upset – it’s your fault because you chose not to take my advice. The swearing is in “good taste” and only used to hammer home a quality that has helped me live large in side and out side of the gym.

I filmed this video on Saturday afternoon in Las Vegas.  The conversation was inspired after a random “run in” with one of my customers who wanted to pick my brain.  I asked if I could video tape my response and my new friend, Anthony Meyers enthusiastically agreed.

In this video you’ll discover:

⇒The #1 reason why Ive been able to build my dream body and my dream life by the age of 30.

⇒The 5 most important things every male wants in life and they all start with the letter M.

⇒What I said to my doctor when I was 16 years old and he told me I should take up a new sport after I got injured.

⇒Why obstacles are a GOOD THING.

⇒The mindset I had to build a six-figure ($100,000) personal training business by the age of 24; drive my dream car by the age of 24 and buy my first house by the age of 24.

And much, much, more passionate and motivational insights from life to LIVE LARGE.

Now it’s your turn. I want to know ONE time in your life when you defied the “impossible” and I’m Going For It!

You can relate your story from a physical, intellectual, relational or spiritual stand point.

I look forward to hearing your “Go For It” story.

Vince Del Monte

P.S. Let’s get at least 200 Go For It stories before I release the next video I filmed for you in Vegas.

  2. I’d have to say the main thing was getting into the Air Force mainly against my own inner critic. I’m not sure if it’s harder striving for something in the direction opposite that of the company one shares or doing it alone but one thing was certain, I was definitely battling against false conditionings and beliefs. That’s one of the things I love about Vince’s programs is that he actually seems to relish going against the conventional ideas and opinions of who can do what and whether so and so is possible. As the late Napoleon Hill eloquently put it: What the mind can concieve and believe, it can achieve. My biggest dream is yet to be realized and that is to become a Pararescue jumper which has about an 85% washout rate in the training. By the way Vince-and you may probably have already heard of him- but there’s a guy named Peter Ragnar whos lifestyle almost epitomizes the whole going against the grain and “screw you doctor I don’t buy it”
    attitude. Some people think he’s an absolute cook, but I’ve bought some of his material and I can assure you that a lot of it is legit. Whether or not you believe in the manifestation process is a different story, but at least as far as what he does health-wise, a lot corresponded with my own personal research and findings, only he’s been doing it a lot longer( his main premise is that there’s not reason the body must die, which incidently isn’t that far-fetched according the latest scientific research) so take a gander if you want.

  3. Well lots of people have commented already, but anyway I wanted to say how great this video was, the more I read about you Vince and your program, the more motivated I get.
    My story, a relationship story, goes like this:
    Around 1 year ago a made a business trip to Moscow (Russia), in that trip I met this woman who completly "moved" the floor for me and I instantly knew, in that moment, this was the girl for me. I was very fortuned since she liked me as well, so we hanged out a couple of times and before comming back to my country (Costa Rica) we practically started dating.
    starting from there we started dating everyday through Internet, emails, chats, skype, whatever was in hand. 90% of my family and friends told me to forget about it, that it wouldnt work and things like this, but I always said: "Fuck it! We will make it work!". 3 months later my company sent me again to Moscow and it was the best week of my life I swear. 3 months later we got some savings and went for Paris for a week. 2 months later she went to Costa Rica for 2 weeks. and at the same time I got a job offer from my company to work in Vienna Austria, the dream was working itself out :). Now Im currently living in Vienna, em and my girlsfriend see each other once or twice a month, more in loved than ever and now we are engaged to get married by the end of the year.

    you are right, if you propose it for yourself and with dedication, positivism and (why not?) faith in life, things can work out for you.

    Last week I bought the NNMB and now I'll make my body change finally
    Cheers!

  5. My "Screw it" story starts at the beginning of this year. I'd just started a new semester at a new college, didn't know anyone, didn't have any friends or any connections except my mom (who works at the college and because of that I get free tuition, my main reason for going here lol). When I was little, I'd used to play soccer, but then I got out of it, got into reading and writing and kind of became a "book nerd" if you will. I ended up becoming friends with other "nerds" and stuff like that, but there was still a part of me that, for whatever reason, ended up "attracting" people who were more than that. Athletes, popular guys, etc. I should have known then that there was something more for me, that I could achieve bigger, but I guess stuff like that doesn't click so much in high school.

    Fast forward to last year, when I was attending a different college. I got into weight lifting, kept writing, and sort of flipped back and forth between the two, half-assing both pursuits. I gained a couple pounds of muscle, but nothing substantial, and at the end of an entire school year didn't look all that much different.

    When I was signing up for classes this year, I had been following you, Vince, and also John Romaniello and had been looking forward to the release of Final Phase Fatloss (which I bought on the opening day at the amazing discounted price). Anyway, I saw an ice hockey class. My school is HUGE on ice hockey (our hockey team is actually going to the hockey version of the "Final Four" in Detroit!) and my first thought was "dude, that's awesome! I can learn to play hockey!" followed very shortly by "dude, I suck at skating. I'll be awful." I ended up registering for the class, and while I waited for it to start (it's an eight week class only for the second half of the semester) I started a much stricter workout regimen, nutrition plan, AND started writing much more frequently and at a much higher quality. I was pursuing both of my passions much more fully and seeing much bigger results. So anyway, hockey class comes along. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, else in the class can skate well at the very least, and most of them have played hockey in high school. I stepped on the ice and instantly knew it was going to be a rough 50 minutes of class. I was worried about looking like an idiot, falling on my face, screwing everything up… and then I stopped and looked back and was like "I made a commitment to better fitness, better writing, and overall bettering myself in every aspect of my life, from fitness to my beautiful girlfriend to my school work to everything else. I started out a stupid looking novice at weight lifting, but I've made huge and awesome progress. Why should this be any different?"

    So that was my "screw it" moment. I decided I was going to put my heart into learning to play hockey, no matter how many mistakes I made, how many times I fell, and how much I looked like an idiot. It paid off, when two weeks into the class our teacher, who's also the head coach of our hockey team, skated over to me and told me I was really "improving dramatically" in my skating and stick and puck handling skills.

    This whole semester has been a radical shift in my mindset to put my absolute best into everything I attempt, and it's paying off hugely. I'm even looking to get into personal training and maybe even start my own fitness business like you, but I know that wherever I do end up going with my life, it's going to be huge. Why? Because I've already started living HUGE and LARGE in every aspect of my life. Like you said in the video, it's about growth. I'm constantly growing, falling down and making mistakes but at the same time making huge and satisfying accomplishments, trying new things and not being afraid to push myself. It's paying off immensely, and I'm totally excited for my future. This video just hits everything home 5,000 times more. Thanks for doing what you do, Vince, and don't stop.

  6. Vince, me again.
    Live it or leave it. You cant straddle the fence. There is no such thing as a part time Christian. Pick your team, but dont try to play both sides. It never works.

  8. Hi Vince
    Thanks for saying the things that need to be said. Allot of people out there today, live life only to the limits set by average people, and that's fine, but it is not the ordinary that landed on the moon is it, no. The world we live in today need extraordinary people, as this will ensure the survival of us humans and our planet, so by all means Screw It…….. Just Do It !!! The Sky is NOT the limit…………
    Ps. Remember in the word Extraordinary the word EXTRA is included which determine the difference between average and Great.

    Thank You
    Francois

  9. My "F-it" moment was definitely sophomore year of highschool. After growing up being the fat kid who couldnt do sports, and being initially discouraged by everyone around me from playing football, I decided to join the team. That first year i dropped 50lbs (215 to 165). But more importantly, I found out that I am a weight lifting addict. Now, my freshman year of college, I am lifting way past my original goals and what people told me was possible. The funny thing is that throughout the journey there were so many times I would get comments about lifting like "one rep? anyone can lift weight for one rep…" well F them. I now bench press over 350lbs, squat over 400, and powerclean around 250…all while keeping my bodyfat relatively low (been trimming down to get 6% by April 6th). Great stuff Vince! I totally agree with your breaking beyond genetics.

  13. Hey Vince,

    That was inspirational, I always love listening to other people's F-CK IT stories. I'm somewhat young and don't have any real success story yet.

    However, when I was in high school I was a huge hockey player. Coach after coach after coach told me how hard of a worker I was and how much they admired my drive.

    My goal was to make first team all section me senior year. I busted my ass but unfortunately it was not enough…

    I tried out for my college team and, again, failure. My drive was there but my skills just weren't. Shortly after I found out the girl I loved had just cheated on me.

    Those times sure sucked.

    But at some point I realized that good things aren't just going to happen. With that I calmly, but passionately said "Fuck This"

    I have since gained 15 pounds of muscle ( with your program), started learning a new language, and am getting ready to move to Hollywood to be an actor.

    Vince, I'm going to make you a promise

    I PROMISE:
    You WILL see my name in lights one day. I WILL make seven figures. I WILL marry the most beautiful woman in the world.

    And you and Flavia can come to my premier!

    – Anthony

  15. Hi Vince, I think this is my first comment on here although I've been following you for I don't know maybe 2 years now. Here's one of my "impossible" stories:

    January 2009 – working in an office temping, promised full contract but got 'let go' the day i was about to rent a house. I wanted to become a personal trainer (partly inspired by you), at the time i had no job, £1500 overdrawn with a £2k limit. No income, no assets, no savings. I had £500 to last me until I found a job and recieved my wage. I had 2 options, 1) wait till I get a job, save money, then pay for the PT course. OR option 2) F*ck it – I'm not wasting any more of my life, I'll figure something out.

    The next day I met with the person who ran the course, Paid £300 that day, set up a DD for £300pm till the course was paid, as i mentioned above I couldn't afford it, but i did it anyway. I figured this will force me to get a job ASAP.

    Got a self employed sales job 100% commision. 60 hour weeks, 14 hours travelling, 10 hrs a day on my feet, driving lessons, and studying on the trains. Bought a 100kg olympic barbell set to train at 11pm at night.
    7 months later – Qualified PT, dropped 7% bf, got a job as a fitness instructor.
    nov 2009 – started NNMB – gained 6.3KG of muscle in 3 months. I'm an ectomorph but i pushed through anyway. now i'm inspiring others to build muscle naturally and stay away from roids.

    sorry for the essay but this video REALLY hit me hard, I hate people telling me it can't be done, its too risky, there's a recession, or they haven't got time to train, or time to eat big. I'm not perfect i'm lazy but i acknowledge that i dont come up with external excuses I know i limit myself.

    Vince you are a real inspiration to me, not just in fitness but in business and values. People like yourself, Joel Marion, Craig Ballantyne, John Romaniello, Elliot Hulse, Bedros and so many others have helped me achieve more in the last 12 months than my entire life (22 years)

  16. I was told that I would not be able to get into the college that I wanted to. I didn't listen to what people told me, and I not only made it in, but graduated with high scores. It just shows that if you want to achieve your dreams you should listen to the right voices. Keep up the good work, and let's see the next video!

  17. Hey Vince,

    You're definitely an inspiration to me. I started training martial arts when I was young. I fell out of it when I got out of college and into the job market. I worked jobs I was miserable in, 60+ hours a week and no real future. I said "F-IT!" I started training martial arts again. 9 months later, I went to Korea to train for a year where I met the girl I'm gonna marry (Southern belle from Tennessee). Now we're back in the states, with the big day on May 5th and I'm managing a couple martial arts schools with a future that looks to expand.

    I would like to take what I'm doing, and combine it with what you're doing. I think it would be great to teach the martial arts over the internet, but I need to do some more research. Got any good sources on internet marketing?

    Thanks again for all the great info, and you are a great inspiration. I'm looking forward to the day when I can shake your hand and tell you thanks in person. Congrats on the engagement! and let us know how your new protege does with Flavia's sister! just kidding, that's none of my business.

    Thanks again!

    Tim

      • Well our big day's May 5th. Coming up fast, and we've got a lot to do! And I didn't open the schools myself, I was brought in as a managing partner and head instructor (by the master that trained me since I was 11).
        I'm doing this to get the experience to go off on my own and create my own business, or expand this chain rapidly across the state, or more, and possibly onto the net.

        I forgot to add something earlier – you (and your dad) mentioned that you are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with. Not to sound harsh, but if your scope and ambition exceeds the others around you, you can't let them drag you down. It is very true that sometimes you just outgrow the people around you. When you're king of the hill, sometimes it's lonely at the top. So what now? find a bigger hill.

        Thanks for the info, the support, and the well wishes. If you're ever in the Chicago area, you're welcome at our school anytime!

  19. Hey guys this is Josh….I am 21 and I've been training for 2 1/2 years now. One day I just got so sick and tired of being cast-out, neglected, and ignored as if I meant NOTHING to this world because I was so small and skinny!! Especially the girls, they never seemed to want to give me a chance to get to know me. So I decided to put my foot down and put an end to that shit once and for all !!!

    I turned all of my Anger, Hurt, Sadness, Aggression into weight training and I absolutely loved it! I knew I was doing something healthy and productive for my body and confidence. And Vince is absolutely right when he says you have to have a Passion for what you're doing….Weight training is soo fun for me, I really do look forward to my workouts!! It's like a pure adrenaline rush when you know that you've just completed an amazing workout! Good luck guys, and keep up the good work Vince, you're an inspiration to us all. I wish I could be as cool as you someday Vince.

  21. Hey Vince! Great attitude. I've had similar experiences.

    When I was 16 I wanted to be a singer and play guitar… but I sucked at both. My friend's mom told me I'd never be able to sing. That you had to be born able to sing. Of course I said "fuck that" and practiced for hours on both. Eventually I got better and formed my own rock band. We wrote several songs, recorded a few demos, played many shows. We were really talented. Although, that band eventually broke up, but I'm still a good singer and guitar player and write my own songs.

    Same thing with the muscle building. I weighed 130lbs when I was 18. No one said I could gain weight or put on muscle. Eventually I figured it out and put on 30lbs of muscle. Now, thanks to guys like you I'm taking it to the next level and blowing past my genetic limits. I WILL put on another 30 lbs this year!

    Next on the list is mastering the internet marketing baby! That's been a dream of mine too!

    Keep rockin it, brother.

  22. Awesome Vince!

    You're a great role model…You remind me of Bruce Lee…Body and Mind…going beyond the impossible. The limits of the human body and mind is limitless. Your story about being sixteen and being told to find a new sport reminds me of when Bruce Lee injured his back…doctors told him he'll never be able to do martial arts again….in less then 6 months….he was out training and doing what he loves best….martial arts. Love watching your videos and all the advice that you give!

  24. Hi Vince, I think you absolutely hit the nail on the head. It’s just about being too passive and giving into pessimistic opinions. To lead an extraordinary life, you can’t do extraordinary things! It’s essential to live your dreams, but let’s not forget that dreams don’t just come true. You have to work towards those goals!

    Another important factor that you brought up was the paradox that as we mature, we actually become more timid and less inclined to take risks. It’s always the risk-takers who’ve retained their abiliity to dream and plough through every difficulty who’ve achieved such success. I’m sure bill gates said f that as well when he dropped out of university. He believed he’d excel in his very own field.

    I’ve also overcome the odds plenty of times and become better for it. The low point came when I started taking the easy way out of situations. I was even bullimic at a certain point of time! But once I knew that results don’t come through shortcuts, I blew my old self away! As a guy, I shouldn’t have been doing such piss-worthy things, but I don’t regret having gone into it, as it’s made me a better person. So, I guess, you’ve really spelt it out for everyone. Genetics don’t mean no shit!

  26. My "F-It" story… I am a sophomore in college and have always dreamed of playing division one basketball. After a disappointing senior year in high school i gave up on my dream for the time being and decided to focus on school. After itching to play i went back to the gym to see that my skills had improved just from working out and becoming a better athlete. People tell me that i cant do it and i don't have a chance, that I've made it as far as ill go in basketball. But i refuse to let that bring me down, sometimes you just have to say what the fuck and make your move. So I'm going to make my move and try and walk on to my college team. People tell me what if you don't make it and i tell them well then i don't make it but at least i never gave up. But not only in basketball in my whole life i have realized not to hold yourself to the standards others hold you to but rather to the ones you put forth towards yourself. The danger in life isn't to put a goal to high and not be able to reach it but rather to put a goal to low and be able to reach it. I cross train with mma to give my body the endurance it needs to go on I will be at the top someday in something and if someone gets in my way ill just push them aside and not have them in my life. Thanks Vince for your inspiration and reminding me to set my owns standards and not let others dictate them.

  28. My fuck it moment was during my freshman year of high school when all of my teachers and friends said i wasnt smart enough to take honors classes let alone graduate. I proved them all wrong when i graduated in the top of my class. Even though i have made it through so tough times and drug problems I still have dreams of making a name for my self in the fitness world. I have decided to go against ever ones opinion and strive to be succesful in life and make it from rags to riches. I have been learning every thing i can about mucle building and have my mind set on being one of the best personal trainers in the world. So every day i keep a log of every thing i eat, every time i workout, and the amount of sleep i get each day. I hope to one day be as succesful as you vince.

  29. Hey Vince
    Nice said – for me it´s right on the spot. I live in Denmark and here a part of our culture is that you don´t incourage people too much to go for the dream and succes that you want – so what you say here in the video is, for me, a part of tha mentality i´ve been missing.
    Very nice mentality – THANKS

  32. Great video post Vince. 15 years ago I said screw it and decided to train in martial arts. I began practising Aikido and now 15 years later teach and train Aikido.

      • Vince, the decision changed me in many ways. One way is that I brought a new level of consistency to my training and my life. It taught me to break down all goals into the next actionable step. In terms of going for a black belt level of training, the only thing you can do is focus on showing up for the next class and train hard. Eventually the day came when the goal was realized.

        I took that mindset into my fitness and dropped 30 pounds 7 years ago and now I focus my fitness on enabling me to train Aikido, be strong, flexible and durable in the real world. Consistency is a key. Take care.

  33. Hi Vince,
    I am so thankful to Craig's newsletters for introducing me to you! Well, I had also hit the "plateau" in my training program and even in my life! And what you say about the parallels between training and life itself, it's so true!
    I am totally motivated now and I am going to be an achiever! And whatever I have been told I could not do, well, "screw that!!"
    Keep up the great work!

  34. My "F-It" story…I'm 19 years old but I've had a few F-It moments in my life so far. One of the most vivid was a fear I had of playing football. I felt I wasn't aggressive enough or tough enough or strong or fast enough to play such a sport. My twin brother was a football star in the making and I was more of a track star myself. By the time I was a freshman in high school I said "F-IT" and I told my parents I was going to play football. Not only did I make the team, I was a JV starting Tight End for two years and a Varsity starting Running Back / Outside Linebacker / Safety for my last two years of high school. I also got district honors for my incredible playing skills on Offense/Defense/Special Teams. I went for it and I achieved it. I'm sure I can push myself to overcome my genetic walls to gain the body I always pictured myself having. Thanks for your videos Vince, your an inspiration for us all!

    • Keep training. You're still big so it will take some time. You're on the right track… remind yourself of how far you've come when you get frustrated.

  36. Good video Vince. My 'F' moment was when I decided to start a blog on building muscle and fitness training for beginners and become an affilitate marketer for now, and yes you're one of the guys I promote :). Not knowing much about computers and the internet is daunting, me, being a self-employed builder with wife and 5 kids time is short but I know if I can get the traffic flowing it will pay off, the learning curve is very big and its frustrating, but I 'll keep on going. A lot more people, make that most people, need to learn to take responsibility for their own lives, all aspects of it, and not blame others or circumstances or whatever other excuse that they dream up for not living their dream life. I read somewhere that the harder you work, the luckier you will be, its true. Work hard Anthony, and everyone else out there who's Alive not a drone. Cheers Brendan

  37. at 23 years of age i was about 100lbs overweight. I decided one day to change my life. although gave myself one more week to mentally prepare for the work that lay ahead. It started in Summer of 08' when my father and mother split up after 35 + years of marriage. worried that i would become a alcoholic, i decided to quit drinking/smoking and get back into shape. college had taken a toll on me and i had gained upwards of 80-90lbs in 3 years at college. A negative situation was transformed into a positive and i lost upwards of 100lbs by the time i stopped. Running/biking for three months before my last year of college with a very strick diet, eat 4 x's/day and nothing after 9. i dropped 64lbs! Then once i got back into college i lost another 30+ and started strength training. I trained with such intensity and was so eager to learn about power/speed/BBuilding. I dropped my weight to 190lbs and in about 3 months from Jan 09 to mar 09 i put on 20lbs of muscle. i now sit at 230lbs and have a relitivatlly low BF. somewhere between 10-12%. The economy has but a damper on all great food i was eating but i still train like a beast and follow a somewhat strict diet. I eat more carbs now and that prob has added a few %of bf. Guys just go out and DO IT! you know i have a shirt that i train in all the time. sometimes without it i feel not as strong or cannot train as intensly without it. you know what it says!? its a nike shirt that says TRY TO KEEP UP! That shirt makes me want to out perform everybody in that gym. i may not be the strongest in the gym but i have the drive to give the most effort! Find something that brings out the best in you! wheather it be teaching someone, your job, or a shirt that makes you go ape shit. i had this drive when i was 23 but still had doubts in my mind if i could do it. i'm like i'll 23, can i still lose an insaine amount of weight. well i proved it to myself. now its time to prove it to yourself! Go the extra mile, do that extra set, in the end you are amazed at what you can accomplish! reach for the stars, i will have nothing less in the gym!

  38. Hey Vince… my "srew it" story…

    A few years after I graduated college, I was stuck in a job that I hated. I mean I hated it. My boss an I constantly argued, and the pay was pretty crappy. I took the job initially because it was an easy one to get (I'll admit that I took the easy road – that was a mistake).

    One day, after getting put down once again, I got up, left all of my stuff there, and walked out. Never to return. Screw it.

    I didn't have a plan, but I had confidnece in myself. I was better than that situation, and I knew it. Within a month, I had a new job that paid 2x the old one, where I was appreciated and encouraged to succeed.

    My life changed greatly by the courage to say screw it, step out on the edge of the unknown and reach out tomake my own opportunities rather than simply holding on to the crap that was infront of me.

    Great post, and great video. But that's par for the course, my friend. You da man!

  39. Vince,

    everyone enjoys a little bit of language to give them motivation, especially myself. Ok so I’ve been reading everything you have put up recently. Really great stuff! So my problem has been getting advice from the wrong people. I was told I could build a lot of muscle mass without eating much. So finally after 3 months (probably more like 1 year actually) of very small progress, I finally just said, “fuck it! I’m not going to train like this shit any more!” I’m now eatIng 6 meals a day as you have advised. I’m probably gaining about 1lb of muscle/week just as you have said Is very well possible. I’m trying my best to stick to the 12 anabolism techniques. Any time I forget, I just read over them again. Hopefully I will go from 130lbs to 150lbs within 6 months or something like that. I am so fucking tired of being skinny.

    Thanks Vince! Really appreciate your advice. Good luck to Anthony, I hope you progress and reach your goals!

    P.S. 16 kids is a lot! I can sorta relate as I come from a family of 9 kids. How many siblings do you have, Vince?

  40. Sorry, I didn't read the directions…my F it point was to do engineering in college. I'd always wanted to design spacecraft since a child but I wasn't good at math. I said F' it…went got accepted into the toughest engineering school in the country for my major and graduated. Now I'm TEACHING math and tutoring. Go figure!

Thank you for this video and extra confirmation. See you soon.

    Mitch

    P.S. Where did you find those millionaire friends to hang out with? My close friends are all internet marketers but none are really wealthy. Any idea on where to find such people close by…or should I stick with online communities?
