As WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and his company reminded us, today - Tues., April 23, 2019 - is 16 time WWE World champion John Cena’s 42nd birthday.
Cena’s marking the occasion in typical Cena style - with motivational tweets. Heck, he even used his usually madcap Instagram in inspirational fashion today...
The message in his birthday Twitter thread is focused on another milestone, however. You see, John was 12 when he discovered his “passion for fitness”. So this April 23, he’s marking 30 years of looking and feeling good...
Turned 42 today. Shot these and realize that by sharing I open the door towards ANY comments you have. But I share these for the message within them. WE ARE THE SUM OF OUR ACTIONS. 42 is usually a forgettable # but it’s special for me......... pic.twitter.com/CpAsDgbGYj— John Cena (@JohnCena) April 23, 2019
...I found my passion for fitness by beginning a dedicated workout/nutrition program at (yes this is correct ) age 12. This year I celebrate 30 years of chasing the unattainable, and never giving up. 30 years of pushing beyond limits, never giving up.... pic.twitter.com/mUCQszf1zI— John Cena (@JohnCena) April 23, 2019
..30 years of overcoming failures, literally facing the man in the mirror, and knowing that growth will come thru pain and discomfort, and never giving up. Find your passion. The thing you can do for 30 years and hope for 30 more. And chase it. With the “best you” everyday.... pic.twitter.com/s9lkx5KMd4— John Cena (@JohnCena) April 23, 2019
..and never give up! No matter what you chase, it is NOT easy, even when you enjoy it! Because we all have good and bad days, embrace the good and fight like hell thru the bad. Never give up. 30 years. Straight. And I’m just getting warmed up! Own Your Everything! pic.twitter.com/4s0CtcpPaD— John Cena (@JohnCena) April 23, 2019
Talk about living the gimmick. Happy birthday, and anniversary, JC!
