One of my favorite quotes…
The reason this is one of my favorite quotes is because I have been on both sides of this picture. I have been the one to help lift somebody up, but have many times been the one needing a helping hand.
If you’re someone who most people would consider a strong person, use that gift to help others. Remember that you once started off just like everybody else. Now that you’ve achieved some success, know that you have more of an influence on others than you think. They look up to you, they want to be like you. So don’t screw it up. Don’t be the jerk who is “above” somebody who isn’t in the best shape in the world. Use your influence for something good, because helping those who may not be at your level will do more for them than you’ll ever realize.
If you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and very new to exercise, don’t be afraid to surround yourself with people who have been doing in for a while. Not only can this provide motivation to get where you need to be, but you can learn firsthand how to get where you want to go. And remember, if someone ever tries to look down on you for trying your best, forget about them. That person is clearly an ass hole, and you don’t have any time to deal with that. Work as hard as you can and forget about anything or anybody that doesn’t want to get on board with you.
