We tell ourselves…

We tell ourselves that it’s about speed. We tell ourselves it’s about strength. We tell ourselves that it’s about power and stamina. We tell ourselves it’s about vascularity and muscle definition. We tell ourselves that it’s about jean and shirt sizes, but the truth is that it’s never about any of these things.

It’s only about striving to become better than our past; just a little better than yesterday. It’s about living a better life. It’s about priorities and minuscule daily decisions that either propel us forward into a different destiny, or plunge us downward into the depths of regret.

It’s about mind over matter and pushing through our perceived physical and mental limitations every day. Save tomorrow’s worries for tomorrow and just focus on today. Get up, get dressed, and get it done. Beat yesterday!
