Putting One Brick At A Time Towards a Better Body

The quest to develop a fit, healthy body is a long, slow journey. It's not something you get overnight by popping a few pills or strapping an electronic device to your stomach. Which reminds me, did you know that when the FTC finally exposed the electronic ab zapper scam, the makers of these "ab zappers" had defrauded unsuspecting consumers of over $100? ? Fortunately, some of these companies have to pay it back, as well as others! The FTC has accused three companies - Fast Abs, Ab Tronic and Ab Energizer - of false advertising and deceptive licensing practices for these "ABSurd" supplements. But I'm leaving. Back to what I was talking about on the journey to a better body... Last week, I looked out the window, and where there used to be nothing but an empty lot filled with dirt, stood a sprawling six-story brick building. If anyone is looking at this completed structure for the first time, they may not like it. However, since watching the entire construction process unfold from my living room window, I was fascinated - amazed - by what goes into the construction of this type of construction.

 I remember seeing the sailors working hard every day like busy bees, placing one brick at a time. From one day to the next, it doesn't seem like much has changed. But slowly, over the course of a year and a half, I saw the building gradually become a finished product. When you look at someone with an amazing body as a finished product, you tend to overlook the long, hard journey and hard work it took to build that body. Unless you're with that person at the gym (and in the kitchen), watching the work being done, it's easy to attribute a chiseled body type to genetics or credit it to supplements. (they took product XYZ and voila). - night abs). What you don't see or appreciate is all the months and years of sweat and hard work.

Getting in shape is like a construction project. First, there must be an image in mind. Then, the vision goes to the book as a plan. It takes months just to set up. More months of work will follow. Every day, it doesn't seem like much is happening. You look in the mirror and come out, for the most part, as you did yesterday. And of course, a little maintenance adds up slowly like a lot of interest in the bank. One day, you look in the mirror and "suddenly" your job has come true. The body of a fitness model, a crafty competitor or a workaholic can no more be built in one night than a tower can be built in one night. It is physically impossible. Accepting the idea that any kind of medicine, powder, drug, supplement or machine of any kind will make it faster than the creation (without any negative side effects or side effects) ) is crazy. You can't force it. The growth and development of each species requires time to conceive. For a baby, it is nine months. For corn, I believe it is about three months. If you are a mother-to-be, would you like to speed up the process? Can new developments in nutrition or health science speed up this wonderful miracle even one iota? If you were a farmer, would you try to harvest your crops before they grow? Do you dig up your seeds to see if anything grows there?

The answer is clear. If we only accept the same patient, developing "Mother mentality" or "farmer mindset" in shape, then no one will waste their money on \"quick abs" but it is "working in a bottle" or some other such. silly We must understand that we must first sow the seed, and then reap the harvest, but that we cannot sow the seed and reap the harvest at the same time. If you are frustrated with the pace of progress in your fitness or weight loss program (and those who don't), just remember; success is always guaranteed for those who persevere. Nothing in the world can stop someone who knows what they want and is willing to keep paying until they get it. It just takes time.

Become the architect and bodybuilder of your dreams. You will eventually build the body you want if you are patient enough and refuse to give up. And make your goals HIGH! Create an awesome plan. Michelangelo said, "The greatest danger is not that we set our goals too high and miss them, the greatest danger is that we set our goals too low and hit them." Imagine a great building - a true physical Taj Mahal! There is nothing wrong with building a castle in the sky, as long as you work patiently to lay the foundation underneath. There are very few unrealistic goals; only goals with a deadline will not be achieved. So keep putting those "bricks" - every day - one at a time - and surely, you will eventually build yourself a palace.
