"If you have two friends in your lifetime, you're lucky. If you have one good friend, you're more than lucky." - S.E. Hinton

I haven't posted much lately. •
A lot of unexpected things going on at the moment that needed my attention. A lot of changes happening for me.

One thing that's stayed consistent is the mother fuckers that have my back. The same few that have always been there. Always opened their home to me. Always asking "how can I help" or saying "let me know what you need". Forever grateful to all of you for your loyalty. #truefriends

This is what every one of my workouts used to look like.

I would go to the gym and work the same parts on the same day every week.

Did I get stronger? Sure. Did I get bigger? Sure. Was I in shape? Absolutely not, but I sure thought I was.

It wasn’t until I started running that I noticed my lungs aren’t worth a shit. It wasn’t until I started doing yoga that I realized I can’t touch my toes.

Now you tell me how is that in shape? How am I an “athlete”?

I would tell myself that I would lose my muscle mass and strength if I did too much cardio. I know some of you say the same shit but I know others know better and are laughing at that statement. Typical bro science.

Now I know there are different workouts for different goals. Powerlifters have to train a certain way. Bodybuilders train a different way. But the majority of people in the gym which are the ones I’m talking to just work out to look fit. That’s it. They
want to look good on the beach. Or have a big juicy ass to post on Instagram. •
Nothing wrong with that if that’s your deal. •
However, if this is you, I challenge you to step outside your comfort zone and actually get in shape. At the same time I welcome anyone who doesn’t know where to start to join me. Let’s meet up and go for a run. The yoga classes I go to are only five dollars join me there. Come by the house and do one of the backyard workouts that I do. Let’s go ride mountain bikes. OR if you are into some shit that I don’t do let me come train with you. •
Fitness isn’t just a look. It’s a way to push yourself physically and mentally so that you become stronger in both. •
Start doing things to push yourself. Step outside of your normal training and routine. Find out what you are really made of.

Lunch is looking a little different these days! •
I used to get Acai bowls regularly when I lived in California. When I moved back to South Carolina nobody even knew what it was, and there definitely wasn't a place that served bowls. Not to the standards that I had gotten accustomed to anyway.

The point is, take the time. Take the time to supply your body with the good fuel it needs to run on. If you have a physically demanding job or love to workout hard, it's even more important. Your body is just like your car. Put shitty gas in, get shitty performance out. Most of your basic health problems can be solved through diet. If you don't know where to start, DM me. If I don't have the answers, I'll help you find them. #acaibowl #realfood #getyourshittogether

So, I just finished this video and was pretty fucking proud of it. I went to post it on here but I stopped. I started to think who might see it.

The bike skills aren't that impressive and I have some friends that can REALLY ride. Actually there are some TOP level bmx guys following me as well.

Then I also though about some of my videographer friends. Guys that have traveled the world making videos. Guys that have made the sickest Moto edits I've ever seen.

I really started to say fuck it and not post it. Strictly because what I thought everyone would think. But then I realized these dudes know all this and don't give a shit, they are my boys. •
Moral of the story. The only opinion that matters is your own. Don't flatter yourself and think people are looking THAT hard at what you do. And if they are, let them see you having fun and chasing your dreams. If they are mad at that, then that's on them!

A little story about staying focused.

This is a rare fight between a wolf and a mountain lion.

The wolf had the upper hand in the beginning. As this was being filmed, the wolf became distracted by the camera man. He looked up and in that split second, the lion grabbed him by the throat, broke his neck, and held on until the wolf died.

Moral of the story: Most of the time the things the people around you are doing do not concern you. You get distracted, lose focus, and the competition seizes that opportunity. •
This photo may be hard to look at but let me tell you what's worse. For anyone reading this who has been onto something great, only to let the people around them get them off track, kill their momentum, or tell them it wasn't possible, reading this is much harder.

In nature there is no trophy for second place. There is no pat on the back or good job son. There is only death. Failure is not an option and mistakes aren't cheap. Approach everything in life you care about the same way.

My journey has been anything but easy. However a lot of the difficulties I have faced have been no ones fault but my own. A series of bad decisions and not listening to people who had my best interest at heart.

Today is a much different story. I'm in a much better place. I also know I haven't even began to scratch the surface of my potential. I'm extremely excited about what my future holds.

You may have been like me and decided to take the long and hard road to the top. You may still be on that path. Just know that your past doesn't define you. You aren't the same person that made all of those mistakes. Turning your life around isn't easy but the view from the top is fucking worth it. #iam1stphorm #1stphorm #legionofboom #1stphormathletesearch #bethe1 #wedothework #duespaid

People see hard work and shy away from it. Not realizing that not only does that hard work make you better at that particular thing, it makes you better at everything. You grow stronger both physically and mentally every time you push through something that you don't want to do. Thanks to my boys @c_nelms864 and @pjbeard10 for coming over today and giving that extra push we all need sometimes.

I don't go to the gym early to brag about how early I'm up. I go at early because sometimes it's the only window I have available to come put in work. It's not easy. I don't enjoy it. But it is fucking worth it. The mental victory is just as sweet as the physical. Knowing you could have stayed in the warm bed a little longer, but at what price? One that is way too high to pay in my opinion. •

When it comes to paying bills you have plenty of people to hold you accountable. When it comes to paying dues, it's all up to YOU! I had to be honest when I left the gym today. I didn't give it all I had. So you come home and put in the rest of your work. Don't cheat yourself. Put in what you owe and you'll get what you deserve.

This is the rant from @andyfrisella that kicked me in the ass and made me do the first episode of my podcast tonight instead of waiting until everything was "perfect". For those that listened on FB live, thank you! And thanks to Andy for lighting the fire. #podcast #andyfrisella #mfceoproject #257ltd #mattsnipes

I started to go watch two of the most talented fighters on the planet do battle tonight. Instead I thought I'd fight my own battle. Cash in on my own payday if you will.
These guys have put in 1,000's of hours to get to this $100,000,000+ pay day. When everyone else was done for the day, they continued to work. They worked their asses off because they recognized their potential and the fact they hadn't yet reached it.
For that reason, I'll spend tonight in the gym and sending emails. I have the same 100 million dollar potential, the only thing I have to do is put in the work that lets me tap into it. #257ltd #thepride

This is 300 reps of FUCK YOU! I like doing shit that is hard. I embrace the suck. Drinking too much while on vacation is easy. Over eating or eating bad while on vacation is easy. News Flash... putting in fucking work on vacation is also easy. It's easy when you actually want to improve. Two types of people just watched this. The weak ones that say shit like "fuck that, I'm on vacation". And those that just got the urge to lace up their shoes and say "fuck you, Snipes. You won't outwork me". #goodtimesmakeweakmen
