Be your own hero

We as people spend too much time focusing on the lives of others, we thrive on other peoples pursuits,
we live vicariously through others achievements and we desire everything that someone else has.

Why are they so special that they get a golden pedestal in our minds?

This also means we are constantly comparing our strengths and weaknesses with these very same social media “celebs” that are in reality just sucking back fat for the perfect photo and analyzing 100 different filter options for the perfect picture just for likes. When in reality that chic is miserably curled up on the couch licking celery sticks and missing out on her best friend’s birthday because they would rather have a 6 pack then good memories.

Fuck that.

Pass me another donut.

We appreciate too little of what we have, what we have earned and what we have accomplished.

Wake up and smell the spinach leaves, pull your shit together and look at the person staring back at you in the mirror. Give that person one compliment. Let’s start with that.

Stop looking for the perfect meme, the faultless physique, and the daily motivational quote just to get your ass out of bed and ahievieng shit for yourself.

Be your own God damn hero.

We probably spend at least 2 hours of our day scrolling timelines and admiring others who have accomplished great things, in the movies we watch, the books we read and the people we ‘follow’. It is human nature to support success. Start by supporting your own success.

Begin by setting targets, and realistic goals whether they be strength or physique goals, set them based on what you actually want for yourself. Speak to the people you love and get their views on your level of “realism”.

Then, knuckle down and face whatever obstacles come between you and hitting that goal before waiting for frivolous forms of motivation.

When you are in a position where you are able to motivate yourself daily regardless of how you may feel, it becomes an iron forged habit that nothing will have the power to throw you off course and stand in the way of your objectives.

Your world becomes your bond and you become uncompromising in the pursuit of your personal bests and goals.

This is what it means to be a hero. I’l be honest, I don’t have some sad back story that drives me in the gym ­I’m just so ridiculously hungry to be the best, I’ll stop at nothing until I’m the strongest woman on two short legs in my field.

Our greatest adversary in the gym is resistance. Our greatest nemesis in life is resistance. This is what holds us back from taking those first bold steps.

Resistance wants you to back down, give in, give up, submit, make excuses and live in fear or live in your own little prison of self doubt and be forever unsatisfied.

You have the choice to either dwell in a cage of weakness or stand bold and live you life on your own terms.

Get strong, be strong, portray strong.
