Did you know you’ll never be good at the things you don’t do.
I know right, quite the mind blowing sentence.
Funny thing is this is something a lot of people actually forget or just don’t seem to be aware of.
When it comes to fitness, or movement as a whole the use/disuse principle is quite really one people should keep in the back of their mind at all times.
If you are looking at having a certain set of skills they need to be practiced.
^^Once you acquire the skills maintaining them (depending on how high a level you want to retain) can take minimal effort.
Same goes for an area you’re aiming to improve or build upon, it needs some attention. 👀
All that being said, you’ve also got to accept there may be some form of sacrifice of what you have to gain what you want.
The cosmic balance must be maintained as it were. ♟
I like to think of it like spinning plates.
You can spin only so many as one time, those will be the ones that are looking good yet there will be some that are slowing, others that are about to topple and a few that are already in free fall, that’s just life.
Using fitness as an example.
You are rather unlikely to bench press 500lbs while also being able to run a sub 5min mile pace on a marathon.
True enough it’s not an impossible task to achieve, however it’s just not probable or reasonable for many.
In our mind we see ourselves at our peak or what was our last peak of fitness, this leaves us with a hefty dose of cognitive dissonance in regards to our abilities.
You’ll also find it’s another reason people won’t push themselves out of their comfort zones and be humbled.
Unless it’s proven it can be ignored. 🤔
Many would rather live in blissful ignorance than uncomfortable awareness.
Sad but very true.
So to wrap up this little mid morning musing take some time to be honest with yourself.
What areas do you need to work on more than you do?
^^This can be in relation to fitness, life, business and more.
Give it some thought.
