Look in the mirror.That's the only person in between who you are and the person you want to be. Period.Every day there's a new product, gizmo or diet that claims to be the fast track to a healthier and happier you. How many have you tried? Be honest. How did it "workout" for you? Right...that's what I thought.
One of my favorite basketball coaches had a phrase "fake hustle" he loved to use. If you're into sports you've seen it before. It's the guy that lackadaisically dives after a ball after it's ALREADY gone out of bounds. It's the guy that misses an easy layup and commits a foul on the very next possession trying to make up for it. How about the guy that botches the play drawn up in the last time out, then feigns an ankle sprain and looks at the bench like "Coach, I need a sub!"?
Well, here I am folks - the IDEA World Convention has officially started for me!
While the day is young, I have already been greeted with inspiration abound, which is something I really need right now for my mental state! The past few months have been very busy and draining for me. There have been several days that I simply did not want to get out of bed. Have you felt that way before? I'm sure we all have these moments when life catches up with us and we want to collapse instead of trudging forward.
We've all seen the advertisements. Workouts focusing on how many calories you "burn" within a given time frame. After all, it's what most of us want to know right? Cause if I burn so many calories, it can justify so many other actions that I take within the day, week, month. How did we get to a point as a society where our views have become so narrow minded, that the calorie "burn" is the only thing that matters?
