How many times have you thought you didn’t fit in?
Have you stopped at every criticism? Every self doubt?
Have you stopped doing what you love because you thought you didn’t fit in?
Those feelings aren’t unique. Those feelings aren’t rare within the human race. They are pretty much part of most of us if we were to be honest.
I can honestly tell you those exact traits have nearly stopped me over and over. That is exactly what makes me so passionate about this? I know if I’d listened I would have missed out on life. On every single achievement I’ve reached and am still to reach.
Sometimes , the human race are pretty damn stupid.
Scenerio one: We have a gym full of people. Everyone looks around and sees ~ We all look the same. We all have the same health/medical/ gene history. We all have exactly the same athletic ability. We all put in exactly the same amount of effort and the same goal.
Scenerio two: We have a gym full of people. Everyone looks around and sees~ We all look different. We all have different health/medical/gene history. We all have different athletic ability. We all put in different amounts of effort and have different goals.
Do you see where I’m going with this?
That ‘fitspo’ shit you see. It Ain’t Real.
We aren’t robots. Nor Clones.
We are individual fucking people.
Each one deserving the space they are in, doing what they love.
Think hard about the person living their best life ~
Person one : Only observes others. Constantly compares themselves. Works hard just to meet someone else’s standard. Inner mean voice.
Person two: Looks inwards. Works hard on their goals. Treats themselves kindly and gets shit done.
Who is really living an authentic satisfying and enjoyable life?
Something I want to show my kids is : Not fitting a particular ‘right’ mould is more than OK. It’s ok to look around and be different, to be you, it’s ok to perhaps think you don’t fit in doing what you love……but To keep at it anyway.
Sometimes just getting out there, doing your own thing over and over, regardless of ‘wins’, ‘places’ , how you look is the biggest win.
Striving just to conform to be ‘normal’ in my books is not a strength. It takes no courage.
Getting out there living a life you love without the fear of others judgement
That shit takes courage.
