Gregg Valentino, a man with the world’s largest biceps, has had his record beaten by Egyptian-born bodybuilder Moustafa Ismail.
Moustafa aka “Big Mo”, a 24-year-old gas station attendant, has had his bulging 79 cm (31 in) biceps confirmed as the biggest on the planet and will appear in the 2013 issue of the Guinness Book of Records. The man started bodybuilding ten years ago and claims to have a minimum of three hours of training, at least twice a day.
Everything in life holds both a blessing and a curse. We deny this when we label the events of our lives as either good or bad. The following old Zen story illustrates this lesson most effectively.
A farmer had a horse but one day, the horse ran away and so the farmer and his son had to plow their fields themselves. Their neighbors said, "Oh, what bad luck that your horse ran away!" But the farmer replied, "Bad luck, good luck, who knows?"
