There’s a youtube clip of Will Smith discussing his attitude to the person next to him on the treadmill at the gym. Will pretty much says he will out run that person until he collapses.
That’s the ‘tude I take into the gym. I’m just airing dirty laundry today. I get looks at the gym because I’m either air-playing the guitar, grinning like a madman… hmmm, scowling like a madman and generally reigning chaos in my own personal space.
I act the way I do in the gym for a reason. I’m there to train as hard as possible in the time I allocate.
What people don’t see is the way I talk to the gym staff on the way in and on the way out. We know each other well because I’ve taken the time to get to know them. A majority of the gym goers wouldn’t know who the staff are.
I embrace my passion and how I approach things differently. There’s something going on in my life right now that amazes the shit out of me! And I (there’s alot of “I” today – will fix tomorrow) thank you for hanging out when I share the journey with you. You’re all part of what amazes the shit out of me!
Don’t rely on the outside for comfort. The strength from inside is where it’s at!
