If you think having a perfect or largely improved body will make you happy you are greatly mistaken.
The grass isn’t always greener…
In the past there have been times when I’ve sold myself on the idea that being ‘super shredded’ or ‘hench’ would be the key to happiness.
Guess what? When I reached those mile stones I still felt unfulfilled, like something was still missing.
The reality was I was covering up the deeper stuff…
- lack of confidence
- not feeling good enough
- doing it for others
- trying to gain recognition
Don’t get me wrong…
Being healthier, more toned and fitter can have many benefits but make sure you don’t neglect what’s at the core.
Know your ‘why’… the real reason for your undertaking.
Gain clarity on who you are, and seek to find what’s really the underlying motivation for change.
Try and appreciate what you have now….
You can read, write, think, walk, talk, see the sun, feel the rain, take a warm shower, get food from the fridge, sleep in a warm bed, drive to work, hug a loved one, the list is endless…
Happiness is in your life right now, at times we just need to be reminded.
“Be thankful for what you have and work hard for what you don’t”
