Ever just been at your place of employment, minding your own business, when a co-worker tries to sabotage your diet? Here's what national physique competitor and head coach at T-Zone Fitness Tamara Knight has to say about that:
You're not imagining it….. You’ve decide to better yourself and suddenly you’re surrounded by people trying to stop you. Action, it seems, offends the inactive.
They'll usually be subtle about it. Offering you foods that work against your nutrition plan, often presented as gifts or treats. Expressing false worry about your supplement usage, your food choices, and the number of days you go to the gym. They'll find plausible reasons for you to cheat on your diet or skip a workout. They'll encourage you to be discouraged. They'll even get mad at you for how your positive choices are affecting their lives.
If anger doesn't work, they'll bribe, they'll mock, and they'll carefully plant seeds of negativity. All because you've decided to better yourself.
When you set a new goal, physical or otherwise, you have unintentionally pointed out another’s weakness, faults or shortcomings and their inability to plan and lack of desire to express one ounce of willpower. They sit around and wish or want. You have royally pissed them off by doing.
Piss them off anyway. Offend them anyway. Crawl out of the bucket and find new friends and better relationships.
Remember, action offends the inactive. And that's their problem, not yours.
