Yesterday someone left a negative comment on my Facebook post about the 5 Hour Boot Camp I’m doing in July.
There’s an important lesson in this for you! (I’ll get to it in a sec)
But first let’s take a look at the negative post…
When the notification popped up on my phone n I seen the post I was a little annoyed at first.
I clicked on the guys profile to see who it was.
Then I had a little chuckle to myself!
It was a personal trainer from one of those budget gyms in Sunderland.
I went from being annoyed to amused within seconds.
And it made me more determined to make a success of it! – Well it’s already a success in my mind because 15 people have already signed up 😉
Because YOU NEVER GET CRITICISED FROM SOMEONE MORE SUCCESFUL THAN YOU!
read that again ^^^
It’s true… People who are successful, NEVER criticise people less successful than them!
How does this relate to you??
Well, if you’ve ever tried to lose weight or been on a diet, I bet you that other people have tried to sabotage your efforts!
You know what I mean don’t you…
People who say “oh go on that little bit of cake won’t make a difference”
Or when your friends pressurise you into having a drink, instead of supporting your weight loss efforts.
You’ve been in that situation right?
Well keep in mind….
I BET those friends aren’t doing too well themselves.
If they were, they would support you.
Chances are they are lacking motivation, stuggling to stick to their diet, feel a bit rubbish… And they don’t want you to succeed because it will make them feel even worse.
A bit jealous maybe.
Because they don’t have the determination, motivation and courage that you have!
So next time you’re in that situation, don’t give into the pressure. Stay strong and use it as motivation. Do it for yourself!
DONT LET NEGATIVE COMMENTS AND ACTIONS SLOW DOWN YOUR PROGRESS!!!
