What if: it didn’t matter what you did?
What if: what they were telling you didn’t matter?
What if: they were right about what would work, but it didn’t suit you?
Ok William, what are you talking about?
Do you ever feel that everything you hear on how to lose weight, how to get fitter, how to get better is just BS?
Yeah me to sometimes. Maybe even what I’m writing right now, all BS?
What if it didn’t matter exactly what you did, but just that you did something?
What if it didn’t matter listening to the experts, but to start to listen to yourself?
No, not that voice that tells you to sit back on the couch to watch TV. But the voice that says, I would really like to go play a team sport, or go climb that mountain, or whatever your heart, your inner voice, your inner child is saying.
I mean who doesn’t love to be told to go the gym and feel like you’re trying to kill yourself for what, seeing the same morbid people in the gym doing the same as you; doing what we’re told to do by the experts!
What if you went out and did the thing/s that you wanted to do?
We can do that William? Do you think you can? Really, do you think you can?
If your answer was, “Um well I don’t know?”
Stay in the gym with that feeling of death creeping up on you, like a good little girl or boy.
Or do as your heart desires, get out and just do what you want.
Yep, climb that mountain, start boxing, start latin dancing, and yes go be a body builder if that’s what you want.
Find out what you want to do, work out how to start to make it a reality and then make it become true for you.
We only get one chance at life, and this is your life. Not someone else’s. It’s yours! You get to decide, yes you. You get to make you happy, it’s not reliant on someone else’s decision. Only you. YOU! YOU! YOU!
You are more likely to live life, feel better about yourself and lose the weight you desire by being relaxed about your situation and doing something that you love and enjoy. The alternative is not the same, taking someone else’s advice, never doing what you want to do, and living out someone else’s expectation for you.
What if you changed your whole life that way, and just consulted experts to help you solve a problem, when you had one. Rely on yourself, listen to yourself and trust yourself. Will you make mistakes, yes! But you will learn from them, and be better for it.
NOTE: Please understand the risk associated with what you choose to do, use experts and consult your GP (medical practitioner) if there is elevated risk factors to yourself.
NOTE: No offence to all those who love the gym, I was only using it as an example. I in fact love the gym, especially for the water fountain talk and maybe those weight thingys. No offence meant to the genuine experts in the strength and conditioning industry, who honestly care about their clients, there are too few of you.
You owe it to yourself, to be healthy, to be fit, to live life.
