Country music star Tim McGraw collapsed on stage during a performance in Ireland.
Stay ready so you don’t have to get ready – those are the words Tim McGraw lives by.
The country music star shared a photo of himself on Sunday sweating in his workout gear and accompanied it with an encouraging message about how he got to be in what he called the “best shape” of his life.
“My whole life, I’ve lived according to one key value. I guess I’ve done so from an early age, when I wanted so fiercely to get beyond my circumstances,” he wrote. “That value is, Be ready.”
The father of three continued saying that folks should be prepared for when opportunity comes because it will also go quickly.
“Miss that moment, and you’ll live the rest of your life wondering just how much of your potential never played out,” McGraw wrote. “That’s when I decided to go from being in good shape to being in the best shape of my life.”
The 52-year-old Grammy-winning artist added the #GritandGrace hashtag to the post, referring to his book detailing his transformation set to be released in November.
McGraw started focusing more on his health after going sober in 2008 and has gone through a noticeable transformation, he said. The country crooner began working out twice a day and sticking to a strict diet which resulted in him losing 40 pounds.
“I’ve gone through a physical transformation in the last 10 years, but it’s not just my appearance that has changed,” McGraw told People earlier this year. “My mind is clearer, my sense of purpose is sharper, and my relationships are deeper. Consistent physical exercise helps me bring focus to my life and to the people who mean the most to me.”
McGraw shared another post on Monday writing “You gotta believe” on a mirror and added a caption reminiscing on how he was able to overcome his struggles and get back to being in shape.
“Athleticism and sport have been intertwined into my whole way of being since an early age. It’s literally in my DNA. Even so, I lost contact with that part of myself and—foolishly—let the fire dwindle to the point where it almost went out,” he wrote. “Life served me a good lesson in humility, and that led me to starting over from close to scratch. I leapt out of a slump at age forty, hit full stride at forty-five, and now at fifty-two it’s coming together quite nicely.”
