In the video, it’s not clear how much weight Johnson is lifting, but it’s clear he is giving it his all while Black Sabbath’s theme-appropriate song “Iron Man” plays in the background.
“Midnight therapy in the IP after a long work day – my shrinks are the chains you hear bangin’ around,” he joked.
“Training in my new @projectrock gear dropping 2/3,” he added. The new gear will be part of his “Earn Greatness” Collection. He also included the hashtags for his production studio, Seven Bucks Productions.
While in the gym, Johnson took a moment to reflect on his success.
“In 1995, I earned my college degree in May and ready to go out and tackle the world,” he wrote. “By October, I was dead broke with $7 bucks in my pocket.” The loose change in his pocket is what ultimately inspired the name of his production company.
Dwayne Johnson: ‘May Seem Crazy, But It Works For Me’
“Got hit with a month of depression and by Thanksgiving, I said ‘F— this ~ I’m broke as hell, but one day I won’t be’ and I pulled myself out of the funk and got my a– to work,” he continued.
“These days I’m not broke, BUT I keep daily mental reminders all around me, as guidance and motivation,” he added. “May seem crazy, but it works for me. I know it works for a lot of you too.”
He finished off the post by writing, “Have a productive day.” He included the hashtags #ironparadise, #earngreatness, and #f—thisphilosophy.
Many fans loved The Rock’s positive attitude and lit up the post with fire emojis. The post got over a million likes in only four hours from fans who were inspired by his commitment to fitness.
“My shrinks are the chains you hear banging around,” fitness trainer Senada Greca quoted next to a clapping emoji. “Movement in therapy.”
The “Jungle Cruise” actor seems to be giving his fans a lot of motivational pep talks lately, as he recently shared some of the secrets to his success last weekend.
Dwayne Johnson Reveals His Personal Philosophy To Fuel His Success
On Instagram, Johnson posted a series of sweaty snaps of him in the gym. He could be seen wearing a navy blue shirt with the words “Respect the Grind.”
“Late night grind, gratitude & growth,” he wrote. In one of the photos, he’s wearing a blue hoodie that has the logo of his production studio, Seven Bucks Productions, emblazoned on his chest. In yellow font, underneath a drawing of a buck, it says “Grind – Gratitude – Growth.”
“I’ll share a little philosophy with you guys that’s helped me achieve some success over the years,” he continued.
“When it comes to hard work and things I’m passionate about – years ago, I stopped saying ‘I have to’ and started saying ‘I get to’,” he explained. “Big psychological shift on how you approach the daily grind of s— we gotta get done,” he added alongside a checkmark emoji.
“I ‘get to’ train hard and push myself to the breaking point,” he went on. “I ‘get to’ get my a—kicked and come back stronger. I ‘get to’ be the hardest worker in the f—ing room. Because when you ‘get to’ do the things you love – it’s a privilege.”
He encouraged his fans to “Try switching ‘have to’ to ‘get to’ and start to feel that grind, gratitude & growth.”
“I’ll see you there,” he wrote. He tagged @projectrock and included the hashtags #earngreatness, #sevenbucks, and #1995 at the end of the post.
Fans lit up the post with fire emojis, including his ZOA energy drink brand, who commented with three clap hands emojis. News site Upwrothy wrote “Broooo.”
“It’s about drive it’s about power we stay hungry we devour,” one fan wrote, quoting the lyrics to Tech N9ne’s song “Face Off,” which featured Joey Cool, King Iso, and Johnson himself.
