but lifting is life

anonymous asked:

I would understand if you actually stole stuff that you NEED, but you don't which is pathetic.

It’s funny because you’re too much of a pussy to come off anon and you don’t know my life or reason for lifting 🤷🏻‍♀️

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. Ask not for lighter burdens but for broader shoulders.

40+ lbs down and was having a hard time seeing my progress. It’s not much but I’m happy and ready to tackle the last 35 and put on some more muscle! 💪🏻

We live in an age where we feel guilt whenever we have to cut someone off but the reality is that some relationships do need to die, some people do need to be unfollowed and defriended. We aren’t meant to be this tethered to the people in our past. The Internet mandates that we don’t burn bridges and keep everyone around like relics but those expectations are unrealistic and unhealthy. Simply put, we don’t need to know what everyone else is up to. We’re allowed to be choosy about who we surround ourselves with online and in real life, even if it might hurt people’s feelings.

Are you sure you’re gonna be okay?

Your mood can affect your level of motivation, but never let it affect your discipline. Successful people know what they need to do and do it, regardless of how they feel. Don’t miss out on possible opportunities just because you have chosen to be overpowered by temporary feelings.
Replace your ‘I’m sorry’s’ with ‘thank you’s’. Instead of ‘sorry I’m late’ say ‘thanks for waiting for me’, or instead of ‘sorry for being such a mess’ say ‘thank you for loving me and caring about me unconditionally’. It’ll not only shift the way you think and feel about yourself but also improve your relationships with others who now get to receive your gratitude instead of your negativity.
