A deep fitness question for y’all –

Can you really be happy without getting tangible results?

If so, why?

I make no apologies for being someone driving by what is.

While ‘results’ is a word that is open for interpretation as it can mean anything to anyone, and people will often shift the goal posts to fit this when needed, especially when they’ve failed to achieve physical results they change the meaning of the word to them to be more of a subjective & emotional one.

Essentially giving themselves an eternal out.

People in my experience don’t like things to be black & white.

It means they’d have to accept failure, not being good enough and all those other tough emotions that come within ‘the resistance’ which make people feel bad.

Can people really be happy without some form of physical result from the gym?

Yes is the obvious answer, I’m just curious as to why.

Now most people will think that this is in relation to doing it for everyone else’s gratification or appeasement and that couldn’t be further from my truth.

We don’t need to do anything for anyone else, only ourselves.

A harsh truth yet one that has seen us evolve to the highly intelligent and depressed beings we now are.

Why wouldn’t someone an tot be strong both physically & mentally.

Have a body akin to that of the heroes we see in comic books and on the big screen?

What is so wrong with having the desire to be warriors in a garden, why do we have to weaken ourselves so that those that choose to be weak don’t feel inadequate or like lesser beings?

Realistically no one can make you feel anything you don’t give them the power to allow you to feel.

People can hate, call you names, and do much worse, yet unless you give them permission to break your will none of it will really matter, so why not choose the ‘best life’ that you champion?

Or is that just something you say because it’s a lie that makes you sound good?

All of these questions, they will not ever really get a good answer because no one really wants to put a target on their back by having an opinion these days.

Well, unless you’re bitter & cynical like me.

My friends, you have one life so why not grow strong instead of old?

Take charge of what you want and make it happen instead of letting the worthless opinions of the sensitive high you down and keep you at their level?

Why don’t you actually do as you say and become the best version of yourself, not the one you think will please society.

^^ The irony of the ‘individual’ is that they don’t actually want to be different or in fact individual because to be alone means to suffer and struggle, persecuted for being that which people don’t understand and as such fear – different.

Even my words are not really my own.

Lingering wills from people far wiser I’ve heard talk and not even known that a seed of thought got planted, as such I will close with this –

“So what if I’m a puppet. Once upon time…. You were too.”

What are results to you, honestly?

Enjoy,
Ross
