Have you ever thought "I wish I had what (insert their name) has"?
I know I have been guilty of those thoughts from time to time. With social media it is more omnipresent than ever.
I'm here to tell you that you are only seeing half of the story. Social media allows us to create our own reality. It's not that what you see is a lie or fake it's more a 'sin of omission'.
I will be racing Ironman 70.3 Gulf Coast and yes I post pictures of all the awesomeness. What you didn't see is the pain and agony of 4-5 hour training days, lack of sleep and nutrition woes.
I had to put in the hard work and there were many times it was a real struggle to get started. Some workouts really sucked and I had zero energy and motivation. I think this happens and the most successful people I know push past this and are willing to put in the work even when they did not want to. This is what separates the mediocre from the exceptional.
As you embark on your fitness journey my challenge to you is this... Write down what you can do to stop comparing your pit with someone else's peak. What can you do today to start acknowledging one aspect of you to experience the fullness and wholeness of the truth it takes to be all of who you are?
