Be your own inspiration, then do one better.
This week I was listening to the Rich Roll podcast while I cooked (a normal occurrence) and lucky for me, his guest was an incredible and prolific woman named Robin Arzon (who I highly suggest you read all about ASAP). In the hour and a half that they talked, many amazing things were said, but the one that truly stuck with me was when she said this:
We need to be our own inspiration, take pride in our own job well done. It can be tiny, like getting out of bed when you’re so depressed you don’t want to face the sun, or it can be huge- running five marathons in five days like Robin did, positively killing it in your classes right up until you’re a doctor, producing art, making shit that you want to see in the world. You need to inspire the ever living crap out of yourself, because when you get stuck in a net of comparison to other people, its almost a sure sign that you’ll feel bad instead of good, that a nagging hopelessness will kick your drive in the teeth.
THAT, in a nutshell, is what Super Strength Health is all about-embracing drive. It is me telling you that your drive is a gift- and to harness it.
Everywhere I look, I see negative messages that crush the inherently beautiful sense of self that we are ALL born with, every single one of us, without exception.
I see people undervaluing their work, downgrading their accomplishments, taking no time whatsoever to say “Hey man. I did something I’m proud of, and I think that’s cool.” I see incredible people hating themselves, and I can’t help but think that is because there is a whole lot of content floating around that encourages those destructive thought patterns. Super Strength Health is me saying “no” to self deprecation.
We can and will do better.
I do not accept the message that says we need to live a small life.
I believe in us.
I want to see content that celebrates bodies, that makes me want to work harder and smarter on my physical strength. Surely there is a lot of this, but I don’t see it enough, so I am making more. I want to give the world recipes that make their bodies feel fantastic, that fuel their minds to create.
Super Strength Health exists primarily because I have been really sad in my life, and I needed a platform to inspire myself.
I want to let myself be BIG, huge in fact. I want to be a person that does not shrink away from my power and my strength.
It keeps me making, and wanting to do better, because now Super Strength Health isn’t just for me, it’s for you too.
So, what’s your goal? How will you one up yourself today?
