Average Not Acceptable

mediocrity

Being average isn’t acceptable, it’s simple. I encourage people to pay attention to their ecosystem because you chose the lifestyle you want. It’s true, it’s sound cliché or corny but it’s the truth. If you’re in a group of people who doesn’t motivate you, who doesn’t motivate each other to improve, you will fall in a mediocrity circle. If you stay long in avergage, after a while, you begin to decline.

This is what is called a plateau in training. If you lift 20kg (44lbs) in your training each time and you keep that weight a long time , your body will get used and it will begin to decline.

Being in average will take you to mediocrity ! It’s something you don’t want, you want to stay motivated, you want to be around people who motivate you and you want to motivate others. When you’re afraid to do something, you want your friends motivate you and you want to motivate your friends when it happens. That’s how you grow and you become better.

mediocrity

Sometimes a person gives you good advice to help you to advance or help you to avoid to make a mistake. If you don’t apply the advice, it’s your story, you keep it in your head. That’s why you have to keep an open mind to accept advices from others. You must train yourself to have this state of mind to be open and go to places where you can get good advice. All things can be a tool that help you to move forward either a positive or negative situation.

When you are facing a difficulty, don’t be overwhelmed by your emotions too long because there is always something that can help you to overcome this difficulty. Don’t be afraid, be brave and if in your entourage nobody has this mindset, it’s better to be lonely until you find one.

In your life, you will meet many types of people but you don’t want to be surrounded by people who put you down, who are sadistic, who slow you down. You want people who motivate you, it’s a steady progress.

mediocrity

For me, life is something in constantly progress. I don’t mean that’s the definition of life, I don’t know what is the definition of life but it’s a point of view that I have and I apply it every day . I’m personally in progress in all areas of my life and it makes me happy.

I know some people is living difficult times and that’s why I like to motivate people because they can overcome these difficulties. Me too, people motivated me when I had hard times and it’s my turn to motivate others.

If I can motivate you a little, that’s cool but around you with people who motivates you. Avoid people who put you down, you don’t need them. Let me say to this kind of people « Fuck you ».

Be Quiet And Listen

do the right thing

I want to share something with you, it’s because I have a friend who paid the price of something he did 5 years ago. Like you, I have friends who are going through bad time in their lives. This kind of thing has happened to me often and I haven’t made the right choice. When we have big problems, we don’t want to involve our friends in because everyone problems.

What make me felt super alone, you know that people will listen but they will not help you solve the problem for you, you are the only one who can solve the problem and sincerely you don’t expect other to help you solve the problem. But at the end of the day we are still human beings, we have emotions, feelings and we are sad.

Sometimes in this kind of situation, you feel the pressure to do something or you say to yourself: « No one cares about me so it’s useless for me to take care of me ». When you think like that, STOP, stop what you are doing and breathe deeply. Do right things that can improve your life, I know it’s easier said than done. But believe me, I have also been in these situations. You wonder how you can fix the problem as quickly as possible.

This is the best way to screw up your life. There is nothing wrong with doing the right things to improve your life ! I don’t care to know how long it will take to have it, I don’t care to know how the road is hard to have it because at the end of the day, I have no remorse, no regrets and I’ll be a stronger person when the problem will be resolved. That’s how you become a stronger person with taking this kind of decision.

There are people who don’t know this kind of situations, that they never fought for something, who had never made a decision that completely changes the life, that have not done things that are really annoying or did something that put them in an unstable position. God bless them, there is nothing wrong with that, good for them.

angel and evil do the right thing

There are people like me who have been through this type of situation and at a time on the path there are always two options. There is the « easy » way, risky, dangerous but you can do it, it’s possible and there are tons of things to win quickly. And the other, the « hard » way, the one where you must get up early in the morning, where you the obligation to do several things in the day. It’s boring, monotonous but it’s the real way to take because you grow up, you gaining more wisdom and you become a better person. Train yourself to stay positive and productive, especially do legal things.

Nobody know how the future will be, absolutely not and that’s really cool because everydays you create your future. It’s like a seed planted in fertile soil, you will have a beautiful plant. You plant a seed in a non-fertile soil, you have nothing, this plant wil be useless. It can help you a while but this is temporary and it can even take you away your freedom, your dignity, your self-esteem or your life.

I talked about this because I have lived it, I was in a situation where I had no one to call, I was full of friends, classmates, co-workers, people around me to go to party, buy alcohol but when a big problem happens, where are they ? Not on my side, you know what I mean. So you must invest in your life by planting seeds in fertile soil.

What I mean is that often you’ll have to make tough decisions and choose a path that is not glamorous, not parties several times in a week. But listen, it will make you someone solid, you will get what is truly yours. You’ll have a better esteem of yourself, you will not worry about anything because what you have, it’s deserved.

And that’s the beginning, it’s just creating your foundation, your genesis because you will grow and you will continue to have good things. Now in my life, I have many great opportunities but I have been failures, I’ll not lie to you, I’m not an angel. I was in dirty stories, but I learned. Sometimes someone has to tell you what you should not do and sometimes you have to learn from yourself in the hard way.

yourself do the rignt thing

It was difficult for me and it gave me more motivation to not be in this situation in the future, a situation where you can lose your freedom (prison), losing life (getting killed). This is why I have created my bubble, my fortress to protect everything I like and love, it’s a security bubble.

That is why I am a person who talks all the time to be positive, I motivates people, yes, of course I’m talking about training but there is more. Talking about fitness, it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

You know yourself that after the rain, there is the sun and life is the same.

There is nothing wrong in do the right thing for your life, it’s a simple sentence, but it’s so true. Everything is bad when you do a bad thing.

Maybe there’s someone out who is doing something now, that person is confused and doesn’t know what to do. Do right things for your life, if you need help, ask for help to someone, there is always someone who can give you a good advice and a good advice can help you to make the good action that will bring you to the solution.

do the right thing

I’ve seen people do things that put them in situations that we had never imagined and when it happens, it destroy your life and it’s too late, you spend your time regretting your act.

Everything I say comes from the heart and I know you feel it. So do everything possible to do right things to improve your life and your future generations.

Loss Of Motivation

loss of motivation

Today, I was really, really, really not motivated to go train. Body aches, stiffness, exercises where I can’t do 10 repetitions, all day I feel hungry, not many readers of my blog, my course to create my startup, the job and the list goes on.

Yet every morning I do my Tai Chi and I read my goals but in the gym, I still wasn’t motivated. I warm up and there BOOOM, a 50 Cent’s song in my headphones. Immediately the expression on my face changes, I remember the « Why ». Why, I train, why I work hard, why I suffer, why people don’t understand me, why I want so much to achieve my goals !

And there, I feel an energy that goes, I think back to the book “The Secret”, the law of attraction. More I hear the 50 Cent’s song, more I get in my bubble, I put myself in « predator » mode. I know I’m going to give everything in this training, I want to give everything in this training. The warm-up is over, let’s go.

motivation face

At the end of my training, I see a girl I know and I’ll talk to her. I told her that I wasn’t motivated to come train but in the gym, I found the motivation. She said it happens to her often and she tells me about her worries. I confess that after the conversation my energy was down and I was sad she had these worries.

It’s amazing how the mood can change so quickly. The mood is fragile, change from positive to negative as fast, it’s crazy. Back home on my bike, I am self-motivated me to have the mindset that I had in training. That was pretty fast and without music.

We must recognize that we live in a toxic environment to improve his lifestyle. If we look at the TV, politics and some social media, we think NO FUTURE and unemployment. Yet a toxic environment doesnt mean that nothing can survive.

toxic environment survive

A person can recognize weakness and strengths of its environment and can go forward and even challenges that it look impossible. A person who go through a toxic ecosystem is stronger than you can image.

When I listen to people, I think they all live in a toxic environment, no matter the country. So what do we do ? You let big business and politicians directing your life or you do anything to improve your lifestyle ?

I have made my choice and I learned a lot of things today. Now all weekend, I read books to improve my mindset’s strength to better withstand my toxic environment’s pressure. Why am I doing this ? Because I want to improve my lifestyle in this toxic environment and you ? What you want to do?
