"Don’t focus on others more than you focus yourself." ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
Whether this speaks to you on a personal and/or professional level; let it sink in, dissect what it means to you at this very moment and absorb its true meaning. ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
Ask yourself. Do you spend more time observing other peoples progress and success rather than your own? Are you comparing yourself to the man/woman at the gym who you feel has your dream body? What about the man/woman who radiates an obscene amount of confidence and fearlessness at work? They thrive during any presentation. They exceed sales plan every week. And do I dare mention the man/woman at the pool who should literally be on the cover of Fitness Magazine? Gah! ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
Why do we care so much about other peoples progress and success more than our own? Think about it. At various stages in our lives, we all spend some amount of time competing with others. But what we don’t do enough of is measure and recognize our own progress and success. We don’t give ourselves enough credit for our self investment, work ethic, actions and results. Instead, we beat ourselves up because we’re not _________ (you fill in the blank). ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น
Today, the only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

Let’s face it, the American diet is terrible ๐Ÿ‘Ž!! Rarely do any of us eat enough fresh fruits ๐Ÿ’ and vegetables ๐Ÿ†; instead, we reach for what’s quick and easy which means packaged food and fast food ๐ŸŸ— which have been so over-processed that their nutrients have long been destroyed ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. The reality is, we’re running our bodies on empty ๐Ÿ˜ต. #FitFam, WE NEED MORE FUEL — GOOD FUEL โ›ฝ๏ธ. Not empty-calorie junk.

Hi #FitFam! Happy Spring and Happy “National Happy Day”!!! 

In the busy lives that we lead…
It’s easy to not recognize the amazing progress we’ve made. It’s easy to lose focus because of the results we’re “not getting”. It’s easy to quit because of the obstacles that we face. 

We must realize that WE are our biggest excuse. WE are our largest roadblock. WE are too distracted from what matters most. The scale won’t tell you how amazing you are! The scale won’t tell you how beautiful you look! The scale won’t admire you for your determination!!! 

Why do we continue to search for validation of beauty and acceptance on the scale??? PEOPLE…progress is progress and it can’t be determined by a number. Every drop of sweat counts! Every sore muscle counts! Every healthy choice COUNTS!!! Stop focusing on the number and start focusing on YOU and the PROGRESS you’ve made each day.

— Wake up with determination & go to bed with satisfaction.
— Never wake up with regret.
— Do all things with intention & purpose.
— We are a reflection of our actions.
