“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
- Mahatma Gandhi
This applies to everyone, including yourself. If you have a bad day, so what, work harder and forgive yourself.
Even in the moment, realizing that things may not be going your way, it will take you away from the challenge at hand - even if this means you wallow in pity for others or yourself.
No, this isn't a Tony Robbin's speech:
"For changes to be of any true value, they've got to be lasting and consistent. "
Man, did this guy have a way with words!
And furthermore, consistency doesn't mean all the time, it means most of the time. Therefore, you are allowed to break down, you are allowed to fold, but you unfold - you get up and wipe the dust off.
Back to where the rubber meets the road. This isn't just about working out, it's also about the lifestyle changes that you make. No one wants to revert back to the way things used to be. You struggle to create change in your life because you are unhappy or disappointed. This could be in relation to work, health, or just life in general. It's applicability is everywhere!
Therefore, the solution is staring us right in the face. It is unbiased and unforgiving. It takes a load of confidence and support.
Keep your chins up, another blog will be forthcoming Friday night after class.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
