Change of Perspective
Manuel is back with another motivating post for us! This one is solid. Manny reminds me ALL THE TIME to keep my head in the game, and I hope he does that for you too. Here we go!
So I started writing this couple days ago and was not happy with it. The title kept ringing
in my head but I just couldn’t get it done. Until today that I read these quotes
“remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go” and “you may not be
where you want, but not where you were.”
We’ve all heard these before or some sort of variation; like the cup half full or half
empty kind’ a thing - which I still get confused. But to me it resounds truer than ever
especially on the ever-elusive quest of personal fitness. Side note - had to make sure
‘truer’ is right just in case Professor Danger got on my case. (Prof. D. here: He's right.)
See, I love working out because it’s a parallel of life – you get what you put into it. Same
with our bodies, we feel and perform according to what we eat. So it’s all connected –
ok, got sidetracked, ADD is kicking in. My point is… If you’re like me that am too hard on
myself, ease off some of the pressure. Now don’t slack off, keep pressing – literally.
Even if you’re “back to square one” – I was playing monopoly recently – (gosh this ADD
thing). My… point… is… Every major change takes time and perseverance and there are
no shortcuts. But you can focus on what you have left or how much you have
accomplished. So far it’s working well.
Hope you’re having a great week. If not, change your perspective
