Life is not easy, I liken it your typical rollercoaster – a lot of ups, downs and instances of feeling nauseous.
But I like it, I mean I REALLY enjoy this game we’re all playing, but it feels like I’m only part of a select few and it got me curious. Are there certain habits or behavioural traits that play to your advantage wherever success is concerned in life?
You can talk about genes and your upbringing all you want, everyone has had their fair share of traumatic experiences, dark seasons and demons in the closet. I don’t like the “who’s suffered more” add on package to this game, it’s not fun to play.
You know what has always been consistently fun thing for me to do in life?
But it wasn’t always that way, in the beginning I struggled, it was difficult and very often painful the following days. But i kept at it.
10 years later and I love it.
I love the feeling of overcoming resistance under the pressure and even the reality of injury or death.
Looking around at the few happy souls in my life, the one thin g that every single one of them has in common is this practice.
Not solely the practice of lifting weights, but the practice of CHOOSING to do something difficult and OVERCOME it.
- Cold showers
- Ice baths
- Extreme sports
And much, much more.
Life is consistent resistance – and overcoming that resistance.
Challenge and rebuttal.
That’s how we grow.
The difference between amplifying the chance for success is the different between choosing the practice to face adversary and choosing not too.
