I was born in a strange generation, my childhood was somewhere around 'snake' being the most high tech piece of technology on a phone to being an adult being almost completely reliant on my smart phone. (I like to believe i'm using it for business...)
I remember when you couldn't google review gyms, meet the staff on facebook or get workout advice , therapy sessions and every single possible answer at the click of a button on youtube.
Although no matter how comfortable, convenient and connected we now are. There is one thing that hasn't changed - you still need to do the fucking work. Whether its change your physique , increase your income , meet that ideal partner - and keep them. Technology hasn't been able to by pass the amazing by product of consistent action.
I see it all the time, no matter how many pictures you post of yourself on Instagram of your physique - it won't change without work. No matter how many positive messages you share on facebook , you still need to dig yourself out of lifes challenges and no matter how many self help videos you watch on youtube. You're the one that still needs to take the fucking action.
Now depending on which kind of person you are, you might think i'm being pretty realistic or maybe even kind of pessimistic. But there is nothing wrong with work, there is nothing wrong realizing your life is up to you, because this is what shaped me and every other client I've had success with.
We live in a soft society. When the going gets tough, instead of rolling up our sleeves and putting in work, we cry and take a 'sick day'. Instead of admiring others doing well , we shoot them down and condemn them - then explain all the reasons why we can't do what there doing.
The gym built my physique, the library built my mind, but it was challenges and hard times and never backing down and getting up again and again and again that built my character. And I think that's what most people are lacking , character, integrity , loyalty , resilience. Instead of fighting the good fight and standing up for their dreams, and their beliefs and themselves. We'd rather sit in front of our TV and eat comfort food and drink ourselves stupid on the weekend to hide from the fact a comfortable hell is easier then a unfamiliar heaven.
I'm not telling you how to live, I never do, I'm just saying if your unhappy you probably know why, and it's probably going to take work to fix. The same work your not doing that's put you in this position.
Hell I do the same thing, but if I missed my shot at something, its because I didn't do the work. Nothing else.
