“Keep your eyes on YOU. It’s fine to get inspired by others’ physiques, but you have to set your own personal standards. People tend to fixate on their weaknesses, while at the same time obsess over the strengths of others. That’s a surefire way to stay eternally frustrated. It’s a healthier approach to acknowledge your own strengths, and use them as benchmarks by which to bring up your weaknesses. Learn to give yourself a pat on the back for the improvements you make. Keep your eyes on YOU, don’t let the achievements of others dictate your obsessions.”—Alan Aragon (via thespartanwarrior)
It’s been a year since I was hired to work at my current workplace. I am thankful and blessed with the opportunity to have a steady, rewarding job.
I’ve seen things I never thought I’d see and done things I’ve never thought I’d do. What struck me was how much I found a certain enjoyment in what I was doing. Maybe I adapt too easily. Or maybe I was just made to take care of people. And maybe that’s how I make a mark in this lifetime.
I could pointlessly analyze things, or I could go with the flow and see where this all takes me.
So tonight, to celebrate, I’ll make more than an effort to research night schooling. =P
“You can map out a fight plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you’re down to your reflexes - that means your preparation. That’s where your roadwork shows. If you cheated on that in the dark of the morning, well, you’re going to get found out now, under the bright lights.”—Joe Frazier (via gotemcoach)
