This is often a question I ask myself when I hear all the things floating around being said about me……
This is often a question I ask myself when I hear another gym is marketing to my members…..
This is often question I ask myself when I get an email from a fake address tearing me apart…..
Why is it that I make you soooooooo mad????
I can only go off what I know about myself and how I react. Often when I get upset it is because I am jealous or envious of something someone has. It’s only natural to have the knee jerk reaction of ‘why don’t I ……(fill in the blank)?
It’s really sad that we’re raised in culture of wanting what everyone else has vs loving what we have. Instead of being genuinely happy for the successes of others we get envious and angry. We belittle each other and lash out.
I single handedly am working to turn this around. I acknowledge when I have a negative thought and spin it into a positive. It took a little bit of time to get used to doing because at first I didn’t feel like I was being honest with myself. After about a year of practice I can honestly say I am genuinely happy for others success.
It’s not even task I have to do anymore because it has become second nature. My goal now is to pass that on to others. Celebrating people for who they are and the goals they achieve. Even when the same people you’re trying to build celebrate and build up are the ones trying to tear you down.
