When was the last time you were swiping down your Facebook or Instagram feed examining every body that you aspired to have?
How did it make you feel?
Did it fire you up to train harder or did it knock you down from feeling that you could never achieve such a body?
Many of us are falling victim of the ‘social media failure‘, that is, looking at what others have, how they look and the life their live, feeling like ours isn’t good enough… That’s pretty shit right?
Believe it or not I used to be that guy.
When I was totally body image focused; usually before a competition, I would scroll down my feeds examining every dudes physique and compare myself to them.
This is absolutely one of the WORST things you can do for your self confidence.
Making comparisons with guys who have either years more experience of training or perhaps more ‘enhanced’ does nothing for your self worth nor does it help you get closer to achieving your goals.
Plus it’s a massive waste of time.
Think for a second, how does zooming into another persons perfectly shot, well lit, filtered, airbrushed body help you in any way achieve your best body?
Do yourself a big favour right now and STOP.
The day I stopped doing this I found so much more happiness and satisfaction for life.
I appreciated my body more than ever before and I actually believed that I was good enough for once – I even started praising myself for the progress I was making.
You’ll also find you have so much more time to actually enjoy and live your life rather than being caught up behind your phone screen working those thumb muscles.
The number one take home message from this article is this…
Stay in your lane. Focus on you.
What he/she looks like, what he/she has achieved is irrelevant, it will not and cannot help you get closer to your goals.
You need to start being a student (again), searching for the information that will help better your life and improve your body.
Look for the posts with deeper meanings and a message that will spark some inspiration to get you started or keep you going through the tough days.
You’re in the right place ^^^ lol
… And take ACTION.
The only way you’re gonna see results is if you move the needle so to speak. Move the needle forward by staying focused on your goals.
You’ve got this.
