You might think that for people who work and write about fitness, training, lifestyle change or anything of a similar ilk that they’ve got it all sorted, they never fall to the traps of ego or pride and everything is as it should be.
I’m here today to tell you that if you assume that, you’ll most certainly make an ass out of you and me.
This morning I personally fell to my own hubris.
There was a lift I assumed would be hit and there would be no issues, it can safely be said that that was the mother of all mistakes because the lift was missed three times do to poor tricep strength in the lock out portion of the lift.
Anger ensued, disappointment was rife, clarity was gained, a lesson was learned.
Don’t assume anything until it has been done.
The next time you find yourself struggling and look to others and start thinking “They’ve got it so easy.” or anything similar, remember that chances are they have failed int he same way you have, they’ve learnt lessons you have yet to know even exist and made progress, it just took time.
