He shared his fat loss goal with a โ€œfriendโ€, and that personsโ€™ response was similar to โ€œmate, you will not be able to do โ€œABCโ€ in that time. Even if you get close, youโ€™ll rebound twice as fast. Why not aim for โ€œXYZโ€ instead as you have Xmas and NY in between and theres no way youโ€™ll be able to maintain, let alone diet throughout that period.โ€ โฃ๐Ÿค  Ummm……OK – cheers for your input, bro. But Iโ€™m sure youโ€™ll take no offence to me taking no notice of your unsolicited, unqualified opinion! โฃIf you are looking at my behaviour, through the lens of your values, itโ€™s no wonder youโ€™re getting confused. You obviously donโ€™t know who I am, or what I am capable of.โฃ ๐Ÿ‘ฝโฃJust because those people couldnโ€™t imagine not over-indulging and binge drinking all throughout Xmas and New Years, does not mean that you donโ€™t have bigger things in your life that you are working on and happy to makes sacrifices for. โฃ๐Ÿ‘ปโฃIโ€™ve had people try to peer pressure me not to be โ€œboringโ€ at a hens party 3 weeks out from competing on Australian Ninja Warrior because I wasnโ€™t drinking (and stupidly told them so). Iโ€™m sure you wonโ€™t be surprised to read, I didnโ€™t cave to their requests. I have things in my life that are more important than getting drunk with them ๐Ÿ˜›โฃโฃ๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ โ€œ๐˜ด๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ-๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆโ€ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ช๐˜ด โ€œ๐˜ง๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ-๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ท๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จโ€. Why? โฃTheir minds are small because they have been taught to be bound by fear. It starts in childhood for most, with our parents and teachers, โ€œget down from there, youโ€™ll hurt yourself!โ€, โ€œno you canโ€™t do that, youโ€™re not old/tall/big/strong enoughโ€, etc. Protecting a child from injury or harm is necessary, but crippling their self-esteem with cantโ€™s and dontโ€™s is dangerous. Most people walking around have NO IDEA what they are truly capable of, because they have never been anywhere close to the edge of their limitations. We become conditioned to believe the limitations others impose upon us, because we never learn to challenge them. When we allow the fear of what โ€˜couldโ€™ happen hold us back, ๐ฐ๐ž ๐๐ž๐ง๐ฒ ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฌ๐ž๐ฅ๐ฏ๐ž๐ฌ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฅ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ž ๐ฐ๐ก๐ข๐œ๐ก ๐ฐ๐š๐ฌ ๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐๐ž๐ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ฎ๐ฌ, ๐š๐ง๐ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฐ๐จ๐ซ๐ฅ๐ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐จ๐ฎ๐ซ ๐›๐ž๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ฎ๐ฅ ๐ญ๐š๐ฅ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฌ. โฃโฃThese people donโ€™t mean harm to you, they just donโ€™t want to be left behind. Well, sorry, but I will not limit myself to make you feel better about your self. You wanna feel better? DO BETTER!โฃโฃRemember what I said the other day about not fucking with low vibrational beings?! I mean, you can still have these people in your life, just take their opinions with a grain (or a rather large pinch) of salt – and certainly donโ€™t let their negativity influence or sway you from being your best self. โฃโฃ๐’๐ก๐จ๐จ๐ญ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฆ๐จ๐จ๐ง, ๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ง ๐ข๐Ÿ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ฌ๐ฌ, ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎโ€™๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐›๐ž ๐ก๐š๐ง๐ ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ ๐š๐ฆ๐จ๐ง๐ ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ฌ๐ญ๐š๐ซ๐ฌ โœจ โฃโฃWorst case scenario – they are right and you donโ€™t make it all the way. They may be able to tell you โ€œI told You soโ€ ๐Ÿคญ but you will be closer to your goals, and theyโ€™ll still be where they were; Likely unhappy, overweight and trying to bring others back down to their level so they can feel less shit about themselves. I know who Iโ€™d rather be. โฃ๐ŸคกโฃI plan to still be doing handstands at 90. And probably better than I can do them now. Where do you think those people, who allow others to direct them on what is and isnโ€™t possible, will be? My guess is…dead. Sorry, not sorry. Get busy living, or get busy dying. โฃโฃI know what I choose. What about you?โฃโฃDonโ€™t let fear hold You back. The cost of not trying is guaranteed failure: You miss 100% of the shots you donโ€™t take in life.  โฃ
