I recently visited Stockholm with a buddy and it was only a matter of time before I wrote a blog post about it. You see I wrote a blog post about the fact that travelling can be a form of escapism. So most people were assuming that I was escaping a job in a factory but I wasn’t. I didn’t have to escape anything. I just wanted to visit that city anyway and I wanted to train MMA over there. There are some top competitors who come from Sweden so I figured that I could improve even more by training there. Oh I also wanted to interview Alexander Gustafsson; he’s a top MMA fighter for those of you who don’t know him. Well enough chit chat let’s see what happened during the trip.
It’s getting a trend these days, people just want to be bigger, better and strong. They just assume that being bigger and stronger will make them better but that’s not the case. I’m going to divide this post in two parts. There’s a part where I’ll talk about being bigger and stronger and a part where I talk about getting better. Our society has evolved in a strange way to be honest. We always assume that the bigger guy is the strongest and will beat the shit out of other smaller guys. People assume that all these big, strong guys are confident. The normal people just have a strange vision on the world. Someone once told me that it sound disrespectful to call other normal people but I don’t mean it that way.
The majority of the people assume that they’re normal because they’re representing 99% of the people. It’s all a matter of perception. This perception eventually defines their reality. They act like most people so they have to be normal right? This isn’t true. They’re just following the herd but they don’t want to admit it.
Are you the fool that’s chasing the cool? Don’t worry most of us made that mistake while we were young. Others still make that mistake for the rest of their lives. It’s easy to follow the herd but it won’t give you anything in return. Well you might end up frustrated and cheated by life. My first advice to you might sound like a no brainer but many people don’t seem to get it. Stop following the herd! You really won’t gain anything from it. Let me explain.
Long term consistency beats short term intensity. It’s a saying that’s been used so many times and people still don’t seem to get it. Most people aren’t consistent at all. They’re in it for the short run but give up as soon as they have to do it for a long time. Those people are the ambitious ones but they’ll never get anything done because they’re constantly changing what they like and what they want. I’ll give you an example in a minute and I’ll explain why you should invest to do it in the long run.
The western diet caused an epidemic but can you guess which one? It caused obesity because people have no clue how they should eat these days. The fitness industry didn’t make it any better since they promote tons of different diets. I have no clue how many diets there are but there are a lot. But what made the Western diet so bad? Well it’s the fear of fat. Well not the fear of fat but the whole low fat bullshit hype. People buy low fat crap and assume that they’re eating healthy but they’re actually buying products full of sugar and chemicals. All those products don’t taste that great but they sell extremely well.
