Are you being truthful to yourself?

September 14, 2013 — Leave a comment

I often see people post things up on Facebook and various social media sites and often question some of the things that are being posted.

I also listen to what people say they are doing to achieve their desired fitness goals and also question myself if they are really doing what they say they are doing.

Maybe they are; maybe they are not.

Who knows if they are being truthful or not? Only that person knows.

I am not here to judge anybody, but being truthful to what you say and your actions to back it up makes a massive difference.

The thing is, if you say what you are saying, and doing what you say you are doing, then fair game. But if you are not, then you are only cheating yourself.

By saying you completed the workout you said you would do but not really following it totally by leaving out some sets and reps, you are only cheating yourself.

If you didn’t eat what you were supposed to eat and not drink the amount of water you were supposed to drink but say you have done it all, you are only cheating yourself.

It’s like living a false life…..a life of lies!

Not a cool thing to do.

I used to be like that a few years ago…..

Yip ME!

I soon realized I was only cheating myself. I was only doing this to look good amongst my peers on Facebook and various social media sites. I was doing it to boost my own confidence and self esteem. I was doing it because I thought it was the right thing to do.

Guess what?

I didn’t get any results from my fitness goals, I didn’t feel any better, my self esteem was lower and I felt like a fake, because deep down I knew I was living a fake life.

How did I overcome all this?

I deleted all my social media accounts for 3 months. This way I didn’t have to please anybody and post things that were not true. It gave me more time for myself to find out who I was and where I want to go in life. I was more productive with what needed to get completed. I was more focused and determined and I became a happier person as I was now not trying to please others but to please myself. I felt like a new person.

So be truthful to yourself and the things you say and do, because people can see right through you at times.

Avoid being the star of your own movie.
