You walk down the street, wondering what others are thinking when they look at you.
You walk into a gym, and wonder if people think you’re a dumbass because you’re trying to figure out how to squat.
You want to go to the beach, but refuse to wear anything revealing, in case someone makes “fun”.
Basically, you’ve become paranoid and paralyzed by over-thinking about the opinion of others.
If you can identify with any of the statements above, then you need to read what I’m about to tell you.
See, most of the amazing sculptures that stand today, started off life as a giant, boring piece of rock for everyone to see.
It then took an artist with a vision, months (or even years) to chisel away at it slowly until one day, we were left with a master piece. If he looked at the giant block of stone, and was worried about the judgement from others, then he’d never start.
And if he never started, we wouldn’t have sculptures to admire and derive inspiration from.
Just like the artist, you and only you have the end image in your mind of how you want to eventually look like. Every REP you do, is the chiselling away of your fat stores and the breakdown of muscle cells which will be repaired and grow back bigger, stronger.
You can’t empty all the fat cells and build huge slabs of new muscle cells in a few days – but keep at it over a certain period of time, and the person you wanted to see, will come to life right before your eyes.
Plus, if you’re a gym member then you’re paying to be there just like everyone else – so who gives a fuck what they think. You’ve got every right to be there. It’s time to quit being the pussy that you are, and hold on to that vision until it’s your reality.
Rep by rep.
There is no other way.
