Wednesday Motivation!! By Mike Jones - ACSM, CPT
November 12, 2014 |
I wanted to break down the "individual self" today. With that said. I want to talk about understanding that EVERYONE has a story!
What I mean by this is...People underestimate others or are quick to judge people without knowing what they/We have been through in life. Let's be real honest with ourselves for a moment here. We ALL have our own lives, but we ALL have our own stories!
I'm sure many of you, including myself, are sick of people thinking we may have it easy, given everything, have some sort of ability that lifted us, can't gain weight, can't lose weight, etc. In some cases that is true as well as not. But I think our own past, stories, the good, the bad, and the ugly... is what defines us and our goals we set, and the dreams we hope to cross off our list. But I'll be damned if someone tried to shoot down what my background and story has been.
Understand that everyone has a reason why they do what they do, think how they do, determined to do things, hold high standards for themselves as well as others, etc. But instead of breaking down someone else's story....take your own, understand why your where your at now, prove not to everyone else but to yourself who you are and what your determined to do.
You are your own enemy. Stop worrying about what others think, what other people do. Take your story you've lived and show why your specific story is unique to you... So before you are so quick to judge or say something about someone else. Look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself. Am I doing exactly what I'm suppose to, Am I pushing myself, Am I going in the right direction. Or am I letting my past define be that I'm allowing it to take over. Or am I in control to have my own story but make sure My story isn't know but heard! Dictate your own Story!
