I think we all go through a stage where we are so happy and think we can achieve anything (and we can), only to give up and let that feeling of passion fall into the back of our minds. The reason I believe is that there is no 'quickfix' to our problems (although we might think differently). I have gone through so many phases of "I'm going to change my life starting today" or 'I'm gunna to be so successfull I just have to work at it", only to find myself in a couple of weeks to a month back in the old routine of thinking how my life could be... But I have now found that it's not little sparks of passion that make me happy (although they do in the short term). It's the consistent effort I put into my life. From age 15 I was always having something that pissed me off and made me want to better myself, the drive was there but not the consistency. I would work out and work out,eat right,sleep right and just do what I could to get bigger and better. I admit I got big for a while but then I'd just get sidetracked either by friends telling me to drink and party, video games telling me how fun they could be (haha), or even family members telling me that I would never be better. I was always stuck in the 53-55 kilo range. I am glad to say that since moving in with my girlfriend I am at a lean 60kg and still gaining. This is all due to consistency. I know this post might be all over the place but I just thought I would write what I felt. Cheers for reading and let me know what you think. Chris.
