Don’t apologise for being your best, or choosing the path that takes you there.
Some people will do well with you, some will fall behind, it’s not your fault, you do try to elevate everyone with you along the way with your positive attitude.
It’s my job at our gym to pick everyone up when they fall, but I see more of YOU doing it too, becoming leaders in the process, this is priceless for us, for those being picked up, and priceless for our culture.
Some people around you in general life will be stuck in the mud, stuck in their own negativity they feel they can’t get out of. You are growing in all ways, but don’t shrink down again just to fit around them.
You are becoming more now not only as an athlete, but a person. Enjoy the opportunities that gives you, the new friends it brings you and the new perspectives it gives you in life.
Take yourself to a new level, appreciate you are capable of so much more now and appreciate what you have achieved, and appreciate the people you have inspired along the way.
Do not be held back by the ones who won’t go for it in life, the less motivated who don’t see life like you do, those who are narrow minded, negative people who waste your time.
The journey you are on at the gym means every day you are progressing, being challenged physically and mentally to be better, of course its tough, but personal growth is always hard, but look how far you have developed and become better because of it.
When you get into your flow of exercise, you learn to go with it and enjoy it.
True success comes when exercise and eating right is part of your everyday life, and you don’t even think about it anymore, it’s just the way you live and you love the enormous energy it gives you.
Give yourself permission to go for it, to live with courage and be free of others judgement. Being free in your own mind means you can go on and do absolutely anything you want in life.
