Ok! The Nike ‘Find Your Greatness – Jogger’ commercial is probably one of my favourite things in the world. If you haven’t seen it,
Basically, how I see it, is that, everyone has to start somewhere. Greatness comes in all different shapes and sizes, but if I wanna be great at something (for example, this bodybuilding thing), then I have to work for it.
Yes – going to the gym and not knowing what I was doing was embarrassing & awkward. I felt so ridiculous when I started lifting weights, but then I was like “seriously, who cares?!” “Likeeeee waaaat?” “YOLO!” “Ima do my thaaaaang.” & I stopped overthinking it all. I just went in there and started lifting a bunch of stuff. I had a list of exercises to do every day & if I didn’t know how to do them I would just YouTube them & *tada* I don’t have an excuse not to do them anymore. Sometimes I really suck at exercises but I just tell myself that it will get better next time. There is no rush, I don’t have to be good at it today. I just have to keep working at it. #itsnotaracefolks
Anyways – it did get better and I am much more confident now. (I should probably apply this to more aspects of my life, but whatevs LOL) I think the point is that, whatever it is that you’re doing or wanna do, just keep doing it. Work hard and eventually you’ll get to where you want to be.
I used to be so self conscious cause I felt like people were judging me, but the only reason I thought that was because I was judging others.. and in reality the only reason I judge others is because I’m jealous. #woah #viciouscycle #thatsawkward Sooo once I stopped judging, I stopped being self conscious. Instead, I am be proud to be in the gym trying to achieve a goal #thatscooland & I support everyone in there doing the same, cause at some point every person in there was exactly where I am.
& if anyone gives me a hard time I just kill them with kindness. Cause clearly they are just jealous of me. #isntitironic #dontyathink
