For any number of reasons, the current mindset across society tends to place emphasis on the quick-fix while also looking outside of their collective selves to find that “thing” (or multitude of things) that will deliver what they want.
This seems to be particularly true in the world of health and fitness:
I need this equipment.
I need that supplement.
This training program is the best.
That method will give me what I want . . .
. . . and the list goes on, and on, and on.
Rarely, is thought given to looking INSIDE ourselves; to slowing down long enough to consider if what we’re doing really makes sense; to slowing down and considering the possibility of a more potent, more beneficial perspective. Rarely does the concept of “being healthy” go beyond the discussion phase.
Emotions, mindset, overall health is talked about while simultaneously being back-handed and pushed aside — whether it be because “we already know it all” or because the topics are just too difficult/time-consuming to talk about.
After all, it’s much easier to turn to the immediately obvious, quick-fix approaches . . . essentially trying to force health and fitness INTO us, rather than figuring out how to work with the body, create health, and enable all the attributes we seek to flow forth from it.
It’s a living example of trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.
The thing is this: If you do prefer to take the path of least resistance (the path that enables you to avoid looking into the mirror or listening to your heart; the path that doesn’t require you to evaluate your nutritional habits and make the necessary changes; the path that dictates that you ‘just train’ without your true, underlying health being more than a mere afterthought) and you do actually get results from taking that path . . .
. . . did you ever stop to consider that those results could be MORE dynamic, and arrive just as fast, with greater efficiency and greater longevity, if you built your work from a foundation of optimal health?
