Greek Philosopher Socrates Teaches us about fitness and to not listen to the general public.
How Greek Philosophy can help you:
You are a sports star. You are unique. Look around you. Believe in yourself.
It still puzzles me why would people start an exercise regime to just drop those extra pounds and not think on the real important issue: YOUR HEALTH. This would be similar to a Teacher teaching just interested in his salary and not if the students are learning or not, to a banker interested in his new personal purchase and not if he is providing an asset to his clients or a trainer charging clients and not caring on their clients personal success.
That’s why people quit their training. Their MIND is really smart and knows that if there is not something more it is useless to train. Losing weight can be included in the package but DO NOT trick the Mind saying that is the only reason why you are exercising.
At the end you just don’t have to care what the general public are talking or saying about how you should look like. You just need to believe in yourself and the important task that you are about to take. You are training to extend your life, to look better than ever, to stop the clock, to build a powerful brain, strong and resilient body and in general a really CONFIDENT, SMART and UNSTOPPABLE you.
Take a look at this Dialogue between the Greek Philosopher Socrates and Crito on how you should ignore the General Public opinion.
Socrates: When a man is….taking (his training seriously), does he pay attention to all praise and criticism and opinion indiscriminately, or only when it comes from the one qualified person, the actual doctor or trainer?
Crito: Only when it comes from the one qualified person
Socrates: Then he should be afraid of criticism and welcome the praise of the one qualified person, but not those of the general public.
Have a great day and think about GETTING STARTED, MAXIMIZING YOUR POTENTIAL, AND PROGRESSING: STEP BY STEP
