Slow down! These have been two of the most frustrating words I’ve ever encountered. When I was 18 I went to one of my dads and told him I have no idea what I’m doing! Everyone says college college college! He gave me lots of great advice and I went head first. Smashing everything thing I could and it felt great! I love beating expectations! Here’s the part I don’t go a day without thinking about anymore. I had done everything he’d advised me to do to start adulthood off on the right foot (It was all fantastic advice) but one day he said now you’ve just got to be patient. I tried and failed at that multiple times 🤣. Turns out that’s been the story for 6 years but I chose not to listen for all those years. I guess trial by fire was how I needed to learn. I was then inspired to be an “entrepreneur” (because everyone and there dog thinks they’re an entrepreneur 🤣) led to multiple attempts and quitting every time I got some traction due to lack of patience, courage, confidence, experience and focusing on the wrong things. All these things were amazing experiences even though they were hard and I’ve learned way too much but not the lesson of patience. Later I got sick and was forced to be home while my pregnant wife worked and we lived off savings (ego check) but what did I do? I pushed and tried to force myself to get better. Mind over matter! I’m a man! I’m better than this right?! Funny thing is the harder I push the harder it pushes back. Fast forward to 3.5 years later or 6 months ago and I was more sick than ever! Malnutrition, pain, scared of every possible movement, I couldn’t eat and the doctor just wanted to put me on more medication. I was in a scary bad way and how did I try and solve it? Brut force!?! Luckily something clicked! One foot in front of the other! Patience! I changed my whole approach! Your fitness goal is to run a mile? Mine was good you walked 1k steps or 5 mins of jumping jacks. Just slow as can be! I “relapsed” 🤣 a couple times in the last 6 months but I’m doing the best I have in the last 4 years right now and I keep trying to force my way after all of this! Over the last month something changed and......
Talvez você se encontre aqui no que vou dizer 😊 Tem funcionado para mim algumas coisas bastantes práticas.
📍A primeira é que não adianta olhar a grama 🦗🍀 do vizinho e achar que a dele é mais bonita. Ou cuide do seu jardim com o mesmo cuidado ou pare de olhar o que tem do outro lado da cerca. Nem sempre o que funciona pra mim funcionará para você.
📍Não acredite em milagres.. Não é o que você faz ou o que você compra que te faz feliz. É saber do que você precisa.
📍Olhe para você com carinho e assim vai entender melhor as outras pessoas.
📍Pare de reclamar!!! Ao invés de olhar a foto no Instagram e pensar que pessoa chata que fica postando essas bobagens talvez devesse pensar: se isso a faz feliz, o que me faz feliz?
O que me faz feliz??? Várias coisa: minha família, meus filhos, meus amigos, meus pequenos e grandes prazeres do dia a dia.
📍 Tente não depositar em nada nem em ninguém a responsabilidade de te fazer bem e ou feliz. Reveja seus conceitos, mude quantas vezes for preciso, entenda que VOCÊ é seu próprio algoz na maioria das vezes.
📍Esteja feliz ao ver a pessoa que você está se tornando e pelas suas realizações. E pense bem, realização, muitas vezes, pode ser simplesmente sentar e ver o pôr-do-sol, lá no horizonte. E saber que amanhã a gente pode começar de novo!
Happy hump day 🐪. I am so hyped about this hip thrust PR. I just hit 6 reps @ 335 lbs at 7.5 weeks out from my upcoming competition, body weight roughly 125lbs. I love the feeling of being strong and being able to do this stuff, gets me so fired up lol. I’m doing this because I love it and for no other reason.
