Have you ever taken a step back and considered “why”?
Why you’re putting (or want to put) so much effort into how you look and feel?
All the meals.
All the meditation.
All the training sessions.
All the early nights in bed.
What’s it all for?
Is it just to look and feel awesome for the sake of looking and feeling awesome?
Of course not.
Deep down, you know that your time is limited.
That one day this part of your experience will pass.
That these efforts play only a role in living this experience to the fullest.
Making your life as awesome as possible.
Yet no matter how many personal records you smash.
No matter the new ranges of motion you explore.
Or any other marker of progress you’ve identified.
You feel as though something is missing.
Sure, these efforts are enjoyable.
But not quite fulfilling.
What if what you’re looking for has nothing to do with how you look, feel, or perform?
What if those only play supporting roles to what you’re really working toward?
Looking to make your own life as awesome as possible?
Consider asking, “how can I make others’ lives as awesome as possible?”
This will, of course, necessitate taking care of yourself so that you’re able to do so.
What is the body if not a vehicle for the purpose of the soul?
Living long AF.
These are only tools.
Means for a greater end.
You are worthy of the best life.
Playing a role in the best lives of others.
You are worthy.
You’ve got this.
