"Victory will never be found by taking the path of least resistance." - Winston Churchill.
One of the most beautiful analogs that exists in this realm is that of gym-life and real-life.
And in complete honesty, I can tell you that gym-life is more closely tied to #truth in results than in any other aspect of modern living.
In the gym, your #results are you own. No one can #create them for you and no one can take them from you.
You get what you #earn.
And the truth in every result is directly tied to your actions both under load and under your control.
Your sleep, nutrition, work ethic, and consistency are just as vital as the "working against gravity" part.
Maybe even moreso...
But most forget that it's the working against gravity that is the easy part. Sure #lifting heavy things, #running, or #gymnastics can be physically demanding, but it's the #mindset in and around those tasks that matters more.
As such, the gravity of how we setup our lives cannot be ignored.
The resistance that comes from making making change to your #diet, getting out of bed earlier, and doing all that over time is immense.
That is the real gravity that we must work against. Much like the snake who struggles armless to shed his skin, we face the difficulty of shedding old versions of ourselves.
Those versions that keep us stuck, immobile, and living a life of quiet desperation... they pull hard on us like a star holding fast to bodies in its orbit.
They want us comfortable and numb.
But you must resist the pull.
Find a way to gain leverage over yourself.
And, let go of the bullshit that ties you to now.
It's future you against right now you.
Who will you bet on to win the fight?
Sight + Light
Be. Do. Have... In that order.
