Is Your Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

It is all a matter of perception, you see the way we see things determines how we act or react. “Every successful man I have heard of has done the best he could with the conditions as he found them” – Edgar Watson Howe. We often look at how much we do not have, or how much our environment cannot provide for us. From people in small towns saying there are no job opportunities, to people in the desert saying there are limited ways to make money. This may be true in most cases but it is not the best way to look at things.

There is No Good Reason Not to Work Out

Now relating this to fitness, you may come from a small town where there is no gym, but does this mean you do not work out? You may be a member of a gym with only free weights and a limited set of equipment but does that mean you can’t build your dream body? The answer to both these questions is an obvious NO. Look working out can take place anywhere with or without equipment if one is really serious about being fit and healthy. Having a great body has nothing to do with the resources you have, it all begins with your mindset. If you are a member of a gym without all the up to date and fancy equipment so what? Use all the resources it has to the best of your ability and I promise you that you will have an awesome body. Great bodybuilders of the past did not have all this fancy new gym equipment and they managed to build legendary physiques; you see as Henry David Thoreau puts it “success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

And you cannot blame the timing and your location at the time for your lack of progress either, if you want to be employed and there are no jobs then you create your own job. You use what is available to you, you don’t complain about what is not available to cover up your lack of effort. As Martin Luther King, Jr. puts it “the time is always right to do what is right.”

Stop making excuses and start working your butt off towards achieving your goals, and finally as Greg Plitt like to say “the only reps you don’t grow from are the ones you don’t do.” Go out there and turn a desert into your Vegas.
