Are you one of the many people, who hate skinny women, the muscle guys, the ‘pretty people’ or the ‘filthy rich’? You see them shopping, golfing, playing tennis and in restaurants. They seem to have the perfect life wearing designer clothes and a spring in their step. You manage to calm your anger by assuming they are egotistical jerks, and slow-witted beneath their superficial superior façade.
Your loathing compels you to avoid the gym, because, you cannot bear to be compared to their sleek figure or physique. You might think they will look at you thinking, “Who is the fat woman/guy?” More likely, the majority of people will think, “Who is the new woman/guy?”
You might be surprised to learn that the ‘pretty people’ worked diligently to be skinny or have the funds to buy designer clothes. The majority of people are ‘self-made.’ Furthermore, they have the same challenges you have. They simply decided to meet their challenges head-on. Instead of comparing themselves to others, they decided what they wanted and then, they did what it took to achieve it.
The guy/gal next to you, who looks like she/he could be on a magazine cover, works-out three to five times a week to have a buff body. The skinny women run, lift weights, cycle regularly and attend exercise classes at least once a week. The difference between those who hate the ‘pretty people’ and those who are called the ‘pretty people’ is simply a choice – nothing more nothing less.
When you have the epiphany that everything in life is a choice; a choice that only you can make; you will open the door to a new beginning in your life. When you choose to be one of the ‘pretty people,’ instead of hating them, you can achieve the same level of success.
Over time, as you are a regular at the gym, the ‘pretty people’ will chat with you. The muscle-head guys will assist you with weights. The skinny women will be nice to you – complimenting you on your progress. When your guard drops you will discover the people you hated are warm, friendly and interested in knowing who you are and what you are about. They will share their exercise/weight challenges and triumphs.
Albert Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Mark Twain aptly said, “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you always got.”
This moment is the first moment of the rest of your life. What will you choose – the same thing or something different?
