ARE YOU BEING SELFISH? >>>>> BUZZING AFTER THIS !!!
There is a massive % of people who have a feeling of guilt for doing what they want and spending time trying to achieve it….
I get it to an extent….. BUT SELF CARE IS DIFFERENT TO BEING SELFISH!
This happened this morning on my run…..
So I coached my Blast family this morning….. good start to the day!
I get back from that and head out for my run…..
I get to the first junction and a lady flags me down….
A lady who I know….
“Matt what a great job you have done with X (X = her son in law), had such a massive positive effect on the rest of the family” ….. she shook my hand and I carried on my run feeling bloody good about that to be honest!
GOT ME THINKING – the ripple effect…
If X hadn’t stepped up and decided he was going to take action, what effect would that have had on his family…both short term and long term…
What if he had denied himself this chance to sort his health out, sort his mindset out around his health…..where would he be….what impact would that have had on his family short term and long term….
My opinion is that it is ONLY SELFISH if the people around you do not benefit in ANY WAY WHATSOEVER!
Being a ROLE MODEL to his kids, being more PRODUCTIVE, PROACTIVE, STRONGER, FITTER, POSITIVE are all well know benefits of being CONSISTENT with your efforts around health and fitness.
His children may well now be learning that their dad goes training in the morning and their dad looks after himself.
So the next time you find yourself feeling guilty about doing something that improves you….never underestimate the positive effect it can have on those around you and REMEMBER…..
YOU CAN’T ENRICH THE LIVES OF THOSE AROUND YOU BY BECOMING A POORER VERSION OF YOURSELF…
Have a great week and get after it!
