Do you enjoy what you do on a daily basis?
Do you do a job that you love or that motivates you?
Do you do any activities or hobbies that genuinely make you happy?
I’m lucky. I decided to follow my interests and because of this I have a job I love. Sure, I work long shifts and getting up at 4:30 ain’t everyone’s cup of tea but I can honestly say I love what I do.
I’m lucky enough to be able to do my favourite thing and train whilst I’m at work. This is my life’s passion and it motivates me every single day to push myself. It’s the driving force behind everything I do in life.
Does this seem alien to you?
Stuck in a dead end job?
Rushed off your feet and unable to sleep at night through the stress of high flying?
We get forced into these ideals at a young age that you have to follow the system.
The problem is almost everyone in this system hates their fucking life.
Sure there might be rewards at the end but the majority of life is a journey and what’s the point of this brilliant destination if the journey which makes up the majority of your existence makes you miserable and disillusioned.
The idea that you can’t break free from the system and create a happier more rewarding life yourself is a fallacy.
The majority of people who have the balls to do this seem to end up doing pretty well for themselves but the fact that so few have it in them to break the chains is quite frankly a bit sad.
It’s often proclaimed that we have more freedom than ever which is in part true but unless you make the most of it then it doesn’t count for anything.
The same applies to fitness it again falls into the category of a journey with an end goal.
If you chase this mythical end goal you’ll never get there. Focus on enjoying the journey and making every step of it as enjoyable and rewarding as possible.
If you’re not happy change something. Don’t just sit there feeling sorry for yourself.
This is your life, your time, your journey. Take control!
