Shake off the ‘haters’
It’s been three months into this New Year. Your diet has been on point and your workouts have been positively consistent. You have more energy than you thought you’d ever have. Quite frankly, you look great and feel great. You’ve lost pounds and you’ve had to get smaller apparel to compensate for your weight reduction. It’s all paying off and there’s nothing that’s going to halt your progression.
Then you meet that person in the bank and they say, “Oh my goodness, you put on weight!” At that very moment your mental thought process vaults into a past of everything that you’ve been doing. You know there’s been progression — you feel it, but those words have an immense hold on your thought process at that very moment.
Deep down, you know that you’ve been progressing. It blatantly shows. You’ve had to buy new clothes for goodness sake!
Why is it so hard for people to give a compliment? Let’s be real, people have a hard time acknowledging other people’s accomplishments.
Don’t let people’s negative words interfere with your self-progression.
We all know that words can affect our mental thought process, no matter how strong we are. Bear in mind, you made a decision to commit to a lifestyle change, and other people’s thoughts or comments should not put you in a mental perilous rut.
Most of the time, people see your accomplishments, but want to project what they aren’t doing, onto you. In today’s society, we simply call those individuals “haters”.
When you face those “weight-full” words from people, remember that there’s been progression, that you’ve been positively consistent, that you’ve gotten genuine compliments from your significant other and your close friends.
Keep your course, because if you don’t, you’ll definitely give them something to talk about. Your lifestyle has been elevated physically and internally. Don’t stop now.
