Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Proof that being an idiot can have you winning at life.
The rise of reality TV has been amazing to watch of the subsequent years, however it’s lead to the breeding of a generation of idiots.
Deluded idiots at that.
Some people will be offended by that truth, oh well, be offended it’s your right after all.
This mentality has bleed in to the fitness industry as well.
So much so that there are two clearly defined camps:
– Evidence based people
– Everyone else (anecdote, instafamous etc)
Well, that’s have the former would have you see it.
It’s easy to see how and why people are getting confused about what to do for optimal results.
For the average person they’ve complicated fitness & nutrition beyond belief.
The evidence based lot often end up getting people to delve in to science they’re not interested in and lambaste anyone who doesn’t follow their view.
Everyone else will simply share the latest fad craze and tell people what they want to hear, regardless of if it is going to be useful to them.
Is is any wonder people are frustrated these days.
Where should people start?
Who’s should they listen to?
What are they meant to believe?
Three questions that have so many answers you couldn’t ever hope to know them all.
That said, here are three simple considerations for you, it’s your choice if you want to delve in to these more or not.
– Start by looking for the leading authorities in the filed you want to delve in to – evidence & anecdotally based.
– Next find people who have consistently grown in the field, not just in success, in their own education and views. If they have changed over they years that’s a good thing because it means they are searching for the truth and best possible answers for people, hopefully.
– You can believe what you want, however always question it or at least look for views to oppose your own beliefs so you can gain the broader perspective, don’t become dogmatic.
*Bonus – Always look to learn & question why, please also remember that there are some great people out there who give away a lot of great info for free, there’s always two sides to a coin, just try not to be on the same as the Kardashians and their ilk.
Take the above and do one the following:
– Apply it to your life
– Ignore it and move on
If what I’ve said is something you consider absolute bollocks, great, you don’t need to heed my words, that’s your choice.
However perhaps it’s struck a cord of intrigue, if so you should look in to it.
The power of free will & choice, use it wisely.
Two classic lines said by many –
“I can’t put on weight, and I eat loads.”
“I can’t lose weight, and I don’t eat much.”
If the above were true weight would either go up or down, if that isn’t the case then that means only one thing.
You’re not doing what you think you’re doing.
A strong mindset and accountability are interesting things.
Not everyone wants them.
Instead they a quick fix or diet pill to solve all their problems.
If it came to their work and the staff they manage or their business they’d rain down fiery hell on their staff for not doing what they’re meant to be doing or making poor excuses, however when it comes to themselves and making a change, well they’re different and need special attention.
What we all need is to accept that the only way to change is to accept that we are the result of our own choices, for the most part*.
*Less for legitimate medical exceptions in which case see a specialist.
Actually, touching on the medical excuse above, many will claim to have an issue, self diagnosed of course and it stops them achieving a result.
Go see a specialist, if something is wrong it will be shown, then you can start working to sort it.
Anyway, back to the point.
As a modern culture we have an untold amount of excuses ready and waiting for our own poor behaviours/attitudes, yet we wouldn’t accept them from out staff or people we’re responsible for.
We’d tell them how it was and that they need to sort it out.
Yet when it comes to people accepting they’re the problem, the blinkers come down and the ‘poor me’ attitude follows.
Ask yourself, do I want change or not?
Give it some thought.
