A Dose of Reality

Here’s what we know:

  • People will lie to us. Often, those who are close to us.

  • People that we love will get sick and die.

  • We will get sick. Sooner or later.

  • Change hurts. Sometimes, a lot.

  • Some people will be happy for us to fail.

  • Not everyone will like us.

  • Bad things happen to good people.

  • The vast majority of people who lose weight will regain it.

  • Motivation comes and goes.

  • Shit has happened, is happening and will continue to happen.

Some people might think that this post wreaks of negativity (for a Motivation Guy) and wonder why I might write something like this. To those people I say (1) don’t confuse the messy-ness of life (what I’m talking about here) with negativity – one is about our external reality and the other, internal (2)  being realistic about creating change in the context of our day-to-day life, puts us in a much better place, mentally and emotionally, to deal with the invariable ups and downs and (3) despite what the motivational posters and T-shirts tell you, life is not a always a breath-taking sunset, a beautiful beach or a fluffy puppy.

Sometimes, life is a steaming hot turd.

And that’s okay. 🙂
