When Life Hands You Lemons You Train

Have you ever been sad? Go work out.

Have you been stressed? Go work out.

Need to better yourself? Go work out.

Are you happy, content and lazy? Go work out.

Life will always be hard, but Arnold Schwarzenegger says “The resistance that you fight physically in the gym and the resistance that you fight in life can only build a strong character.”

Keep that in mind. No matter where you are and what you choose to do, life will always be hard. It’s how you choose to deal with that ‘resistance’ that defines you and your strength.

I was thinking earlier..

About all the struggles that brought me into the gym. Before I hit the gym, I was constantly letting life beat me down and I had a bad attitude. I tended to be whiny and felt weak. I was weak.

Sure, a lot had happened and I was sick.

..but everyone has problems. I can’t let life’s resistance define me as a loser and neither can you.

So don’t hope things will be easy! Don’t look for a comfortable life. I’m sure that something comfortable could exist, but it can be taken at any moment. Instead you should live like you are beating all the odds, and eventually you just might.

No matter what anyone says to you, and no matter what life has handed you fight the resistance. You can start by actually training and working out, and allow that persistence and hard work to show in all of your character.

    I think you might be on to something…at least that’s what I’m finding in my own life. Hard work is its own reward, but hard work in the gym has extra benefits!
