Life is about choice for me. I have control. Do I embrace that or not?
I also need realistic goals. I don't go into the gym to be Jay Cutler. I go into the gym to be one rep better than last time. That is a goal I can conquer.
The act of watching a video, like the one in this thread, might temporarily motivate someone. But they still have to make better choices.
Very well put! Gonna copy and share this on FB if that's ok. (with proper credit given, of course)
