Test Yourself to Live Your Best Life

Why does hearing stories of great accomplishments, and impressive feats of mental, or physical display motivate us? It’s because we admire grit, hard-work, and any quality associated with bettering oneself – life’s one true purpose. Deep down, we want to be like these people.

It’s why we admire professional athletes, awe in amazement when we watch the world’s strongest man competitions, listen to advice from top performers professionally and why we respect those willing to suffer and sacrifice for great reward. It’s the reason we get motivated to change for the better when our friends decide to improve their life first, and it’s why we constantly set goals to improve the person we are. We want to be like the people we admire.

Whether we vocalize it or not, we all love being recognized, complimented and deemed as admirable. It’s why the greatest sound in the world is the pronouncing of our name. We love to hear people talk about us.

If we all really “hated” feeling shitty, we wouldn’t continuously let ourselves feel that way; we wouldn’t continuously want to lose that same 20 lbs, dislike how we feel and look, or constantly want to switch jobs, stay in an unhealthy relationship, and have feelings of sadness, depression or worry.

With that being said, it’s important to view that statement again with this new changed perspective. Do you really hate feeling shitty, or do you instead find yourself momentarily talking yourself out of feeling that way?
