People are fascinating, especially the ones who say one thing and act in an entirely different way.
Fitness is rife with hypocrisy.
Body positive champions who wouldn’t dare post an unfiltered photo.
Warriors for the good of our planet that drive 2.5 litre engine cars and live a life with a carbon footprint that bog foot would be proud of.
These things are truly interesting to observe.
It truly is the tome of “Do as I say not as I do.”.
Plenty of bosses and very few leaders.
The attention of the masses is something most fit-pro’s are vying for.
Sad part is that they’re doing it in the same way a child would, by making noise and trying to shout the loudest.
Many would rather be noticed for what they do, as opposed to what they can do for you.
I know plenty who know their stuff, yet struggle to succeed.
When you look at the people who’ve risen to the top there is one thing they all have in common.
Do you know what it is?
None of what they do is about themselves, it’s about everyone else, it’s about you, essentially.
They share any & everything that may help someone.
Not for recognition though, just because it’s the right thing to do.
Before everyone was given the opportunity to gain their 15min of fame via the modern internet we know, people would share information, content, experience and anything of use of blogs, forums and some rather old things that predate the internet called books.
It’s those people that are now respected names.
Well, respected by the people who can see the difference between wise words and waffle.
Just because someone has the best looking videos, the flashiest graphics and endless selfies, it doesn’t mean they care about you or helping, despite what they may claim.
Inspiration or desperation.
How can you tell them apart?
It’s the eyes.
Learn to look behind them, to peer in to someones soul, as it were.
What resides there?
You’ll know the difference between the two when you see it, however once you do you can’t take it back and your view of things will be changed.
That got deep.
Anyway, just a heads up for people looking to make a name for themselves, that’s the wrong path to go down.
Perhaps not financially, just mentally.
Give it some thought.
