“Picture me being scared of a nigga that breathe the same air as me.” – Notorious B.I.G.
It’s so easy to see other people as bigger or better than ourselves.
We look at the image, the stuff, the appearance and forget every one of us is the same type of animal roaming the earth.
We all breathe the same air.
Have the same experiences.
So why then, would I consider myself less than? Why would you? Why would I discount my abilities and experiences.
This is one of the most pervasive and detrimental ways of thinking you can have.
In the gym, in your profession, in your relationships you have a choice to make each day as to how you will show up.
Show up as an equal.
Equal does not mean “same”… there are people who are better than you. There always will be. And there are others not as good as you. There always will be.
We are not the same, yet we are equal.
We all have equal time each day, the ability to see ourselves any way we choose, the power to act on our circumstances, the means to impact someone close with a kind word.
You want great things… then act like the one who has the great things you want.
The formula is simple: Match and Model.
You want to be fit. Do what fit people do.
And yet, so many people are looking for someone else to fix them, the next diet pill, or a savior.
Good news! No one is coming to save you.
#BE the person who #DOes the work and you will #HAVE the things your work produces.
The question is: what work are you doing.
Do think your lot in life is fixed? Saying dumb shit like, “I’m big boned, so and so is smarter than me, that guy was born into money”… these are just justifications for playing small.
That serves no one.
And serving others and yourself, is how you advance.
Bring something to the table… nature is not kind to useless creatures.
What is one thing you can do now that will immediately separate you from the “sea of sameness” and move you toward greatness.
Hint: it starts with small things done consistently over time. Innocuous things like making your bed, putting the carts back in the corral at the store.
Don’t believe me? Do it and prove me wrong.
