This right here is a article that I’ve been making, or this article is in the making for over two years. You might think wow, there’s this incredible edit coming right now. He works on a article for two years and all you do is talk. What do you mean? So I’ve been waiting to say this line for over two years, actually longer than that, I would say actually three years or maybe five.
The reason why I’m saying that is because what I started going to the gym, my friends were always wearing gym shirt. They had these luxe pants. The looks outfit like the most Oh G of OG outfits that Jim shark had back in a day. The first thing I ordered ever of Jim, where was Jim’s shark, looks outfit the the trek suit and a tank top. So the reason why I’m saying is I’ve been wanting to make this article for five years is that I now can officially say that I am a Jim shock Atlee and this article is about becoming an athlete giving tips on how to become one.
This is such a huge huge deal to me and it’s not just because I’m an athlete, the title alone sounds awesome and it sounds like something crazy and I’ve worked so hard for it. So the title means a lot to me, but it represents much more than a title to me. It represents a grind. It represents a vision that I had for myself. That is slowly and with small steps becoming a reality, and it sounds really confusing.
Maybe – and it sounds really vague and really like philosophical, maybe but this title means so much more than just a title to me and let me explain why when I first started in the gym. Obviously I just wanted to work out. I wanted to better myself – and I’ve explained this many many times in my articles. The gym for me was after football or soccer like an individual thing, that I could better myself in and actually see myself get better at over the time.
For me, this represents a lot. It means a lot the fact that I’ve been with Jim shark for over two years, and I started as a small affiliate. I had 4,000 subscribers. If that I had a couple thousand followers on Instagram, I was pretty much a nobody and I still consider myself a nobody, but obviously, on a little different level. I had a little bit of luck on becoming affiliate with Jim shark, since I knew a guy face sensor who was becoming an athlete and he pretty much got me in as an affiliate.
So thank you Doug. I really appreciate you recommending me to Jim shark. It really changed everything for me so two weeks ago I got a call from the guy. That is the point of contact from me. It’s my met. Well, my Jim shark managed, I would say – and he said so Jasper we’re getting rid of the Academy. I’ve heard it’s like some of the Academy other Academy members, I’m a friends with so I talked to them and they’ve heard some stuff.
They heard from other people that getting kicked and I was getting really worried because I’m really passionate about the brand. I’m really. I’m still a big fan of the brand so to be affiliated to be an Academy member on Jim’s shark. It’s like was like the the biggest best thing for me. So I got a call two weeks ago and he said Jasper were getting rid of the Academy and I was in a gym. I was with Vera, I was training.
I was like Vera. This phone call right now is going to either break me apart or is going to really like something incredible is about to happen, so I told her I was like listen if this phone call goes south. If he goes back, I need some shoulders to cry on the position that I’m in right now, with faze clan being employee training with the guys traveling is incredible and I’ve that’s what I’ve worked for this, like the face out of my life, like I’ve, worked so Hard to get there and Jim sharp the other side is also the same thing.
I’ve worked so hard and believed so much of myself that I could do it. If I was getting dropped, it would be a huge blow for me, a huge huge setback, but luckily Derby said they wanted me to take me on as an athlete. But Jim shark showed me – and I showed myself that working hard for something will eventually pay off, and this is this is what I want to talk about in this article as well. I know this article could be a little bit long, but I’m really passionate about talking like this.
I, like I really like, because I truly truly believe that at some point, if you have something in mind that you could actually achieve it like this, is not some sort of fairy tale and there’s always going to people who going to we’re going to tell you You can do it or it’s too big or – and I just want to say this – but for five years I’ve imagined myself being a gym track athlete for five years, five years and two and a half of these years, I would say I was affiliate getting in Contact with Jim shark, I was promoting the brand for not much pay, but I was doing it because I loved it and I love Jim shark, and I know that, if I put in the work it will come back to me in some way.
Some form like. I don’t care how, but it will get get back to me and Jim shark showed me that, because they said Jasper, you’ve done some amazing work for us. You promoted us, you work for us. You were always open to do everything for two and a half years. Now it’s your time now you’re an athlete! That’s why it means so much to me, because it’s not just about the title is about the idea that for two and a half years you grind for something without getting much back, but it will get you somewhere that you otherwise couldn’t come.
So to all of you who are reading this article right now, we want to become a sponsored athlete or become sponsored by someone or wan na join phase or wanted whatever you want to do, I’m here to tell you this. This is the truth. You have to put in the work, even if you don’t get anything in return for it directly, it will pay off eventually, if you want to become a sponsor, let’s just keep Jim shark as an example.
If you are someone reading right now, and you really really really want to get sponsored by Jim shirt, you have this vision, you want it so badly. One always always believe you can do it, no matter what I don’t care, what you say, you always have to believe you could do it. It doesn’t matter how many followers you have, I’m not the biggest Instagram. I don’t have the biggest YouTube, but I know the guys are reading right now.
You guys are so loyal and you guys are so hardcore. It showed Jim shark that we’re worth something we’re of value to show your dedication to the brand. Like do stuff. Like I wrote a blog I did stature takes over. I was always down for new ideas. I always hit my guy. I was like yell. What can I do better? What kind of do more ask for feedback, see what you could do better for the brand? You know become friends with the people off the brand honor.
This is one of the most important things, the guy that I’m in contact with his name is Derby he’s different greatest guy ever I could just hit him up about football, and we could just talk about Ronaldo Messi for an hour. It’s the best thing ever pretty much. What I’m trying to say this is kind of something. This whole article is kind of vague, maybe, but it maybe make a lot, but it might make a lot of sense to you.
So if you want to, if you want to join Jim jar as an affiliate or whatever you want to become an athlete, just know that it’s possible look at me: I’m not the biggest guy, that’s strongest guy, I’m not the greatest youtuber. I don’t have the biggest following, but still I’m here after two and a half years, I can call myself a gym. Shot got Lead Belly. You know sick. That sounds to me. That’s so crazy.
They I’ve worked may half years with Jim shark and I’ve. I’ve wanted this for more than five years, but a key point was: I never stopped believing it sounds so cliche. I never stop. Stop believing and the myself and my ability to do it because I knew, if I would put in the work it will return to me. I want to say thank you to all of you guys like for the bottom of my heart.
