Be the Only
Every day I see people in the gym not focusing on their workout, wellness, their mental health, the weights in front of them but instead their focus is on their phone. People are wasting so much precious time on their phones whist sitting on machines in the gym and what are their actions demonstrating? Whatever is happening on your phone in somebody else's world, is more important than YOUR own health, wellness, mental capacity and focus. It's something I've been seeing for years and then I read this quote by the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger. He said “When you don’t slack off in the gym, you probably won’t slack off in other areas of your life.” Then it all made sense. If you allow yourself to slack off in the gym on your phone with distraction then you will be distracted in the boardroom, the meeting, the conference. You'll be distracted when sitting in front of your best friend. You'll be distracted at the dinner table. You'll be distracted on the sidelines of your children's netball game. You'll be distracted in front of your partner. If you allow the phone to distract you in the gym then your actions are demonstrating that you will be prepared to do that in other areas of your life. Don't slack off in the gym and you wont slack off in other areas of your life. It takes UNCOMMON courage to be the only!
