Hey guys hope you had a good week. This week I challenged myself by completing my workout with the most ridiculous amount of pain. Pain that usually has me bed ridden for 2 days every month. This left me quite surprised at what the human mind and body can achieve with the right programming. Exciting!
Anyhoo ....I had a massive catch up session with the 'girlfriends' recently and noticed the growing trend of dissatisfaction amongst my peers. Many of us had dreams and expectations of what life would be like after university but some how many things haven't gone as planned. Over time we tend to develop a skewed view of life by focusing on the setbacks and comparing ourselves to our peers that seem better off. This is bound to make even the luckiest person on earth feel sad and deprived.
This age of Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and flipin' Instagram does not help at all, instead it encourages jealousy and envy by reminding you of how great everyone else is doing. Gosh! I used to be so jealous of people that were
posting holiday photos, food, what they were doing because it somehow seemed that they were having a blast while I wasn't.
I later realised that people's lives seem exciting because they make a big deal out of the little things. I have a friend that hated his bank job and would doodle sarcastic and funny cartoons on the train from work. They were pretty cool drawings but he didn't think much of them and would throw them out. He did this for a bit till one day he decided to make a big deal out of them.

This got me thinking about the key to personal success, perhaps it has something to do with making a big deal out of something normal, highly esteeming and presenting it with outmost class. Presenting with class make it less annoying, showy and tacky.
I recently read a book explaning the back story of famous and succesful people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Donald Trump and most sport stars. I realised that the common thread in their success story is that they made a big deal out of their gifts and it opened their eyes and hearts to the opportunities around them. They took advantage of those opportunities and have acheived so much as a result.
Why have I told you all these stories? Well to inspire and motivate you, to make you realise that you already have the key to living that amazing life that you have dreamed of inside of you.
The big question now is this, How do you find this gift and what you can do to BIG UP YOU LIFE. More on that next week...
