Sit back for a second and think about yourself. Reflect on you priorities. Then take in what I’m about to say, and take it to heart.
I bet you drive. Duh. I bet you have a vehicle. Uh, duh. I bet you pay something for that vehicle every month. How much is that number? What is the value of your vehicle? Now take that number….and think about if you would pay that much money a month to work out, and eat right, and to keep your spine straight, to maintain your mobility. Then ask yourself how much you spend a month on any of those things. It probably pales in comparison to the value you put in your vehicle. IF a value of self improvement even exist at all. But so often i hear CrossFit, Healthy food, chiropractic care, and massage therapy labeled as luxuries. It makes me cringe. I do realize you have to drive, and you have to do this and your have to do that. A vehicle is a priority. Duh. Shouldn’t your body be a priority as well? Shouldn’t your health be a priority? Duh and Duh. BUT WHEN do you improve the quality of your life? A lot of people couldn’t tell you. I can.
You have to improve your quality of life now…Otherwise you aren’t. Hear me out. No one ever stays the same. You’re either winning or you are losing the way i look at it. You take care of your vehicle. Oil changes, tire rotations, brake checks and obviously you put gas in the thing. When has you body received such maintenance ? What kind of fuel are you putting in your body? When have you had your spine aligned? What if I told you that your longevity depends on the straightness of your spine. What if I told you you’re tired because you aren’t properly fueling your body. What if i told you the reason you don’t like your body is pure laziness.Honestly-How can you complain…when you are the reason it is what it is? You are a direct reflection of what you put into it and the work you do on a day to day basis. And then there are the excuses. I have heard them all. Just bad genetic composition, right? Wrong. I don’t buy that for a minute. You don’t have time. Then how do I?Your kids keep you busy? Set a better example. You place no emphasis on fitness and you are the single most important role model in their life. Everyone wants to take the shortcut. Fat burners, fad diets, crash fitness, body wraps, surgeries are all examples. Humor me no further. You can’t put a band-aid on an open wound. You need a dose of reality.
The reality of the situation can be cruel. If I’m coming across as rude, than maybe you are insecure about the way you look and feel. Look at yourself in the mirror first and foremost. I’m not saying it is easy. I’m not saying CrossFit is the perfect solution for everyone. I’m not saying the things I am to demean you. I’m just being real. So many people are so quick to feel sorry for themselves. I live this everyday. This is through the eyes of someone who makes a living off this stuff. Im simply asking you to look at your priorities from a different angle. Then I’m asking you to come try CrossFit. It’s not for everybody. Lazy people need not apply. But if this resonates with you, then realize you have the ability to do something about it. Everyday is an opportunity to better yourself and the ones around you and isn’t that what our objective in life is anyways? To become a better YOU.Duh. Start tomorrow. Or make an excuse. The choice is always yours. You are in control of your life and if you aren’t – then change that. You only get one shot at this thing. Are you giving it your best shot? Think about that. Think about it long and hard.
