what makes someone successful?? (at least in the gym/fitness in this instance).
is it a 6 - pack? , 100k followers?, a great tan year round?. At least in todays age.
Despite what the norm or popular things tends to be , what is it to you?
The same way some people are living in mansions crying themselves to sleep , then you have other people sleeping in a shack that are the most content people you would meet.
The same can be said with fitness goals, I don't believe it's truly where 'your at'- more so its where your going. More importantly are you still going? Because if your alive theres generally a reason to be here. And without that people generally tend to lose their way , even after massive success and achievement.
Now I'm not saying looking good is the most important thing in the world, but I think its important to know what motivates you, what gets you going, what makes you feel alive. And be working towards that. Everyday if you are lucky enough to.
Like the mansion/shack analogy , do you want to be an Instagram celebrity or do you define success as just being able to function and be the 'best version of you'. We are all different so there is no right or wrong answer, although you do need to becareful, relying on success/gratification of others(social media) can leave you trapped and unfulfilled.(crying in a mansion with millions)
As apposed to just owning a shack with nothing (being content in yourself)
All that being said, there is so much to do. Maybe you want run 100ms the fastest, pull the biggest deadlift, create a new and dangerous style of training and call it crossfit - wait already been done (im joking, aayyyyeeeee)
I'm talking purely fitness of course, theres so many other versions of success, financial , spiritual , career, relationships, you should have at least some idea where you want to go in each, which is what todays blog is about.
progress = happiness = success
and so on , so instead of chasing somebody elses version of success, instead of mindlessly scrolling through your social media feed, instead of trying to acheive what someone else has done.
Work out you, do you, make progress, be happy.
Its as simple and as complicated as that.
