When I was 15, I was incredibly insecure with my body. I felt scrawny, weak, and as if I couldn’t hold my own physically. I needed change.
I wanted to feel true self-confidence and to “grow into myself” as older family friends insisted would come with age.
I understood that growing up would push me out of this awkward phase, but waiting was a lame option. Taking ownership would be my best bet.
I soon discovered the true power of strength training and fitness.
I fell in love with it.
Most of my time was spent watching YouTube videos, reading articles, and practicing my new knowledge in the gym.
What you can take from this
I knew that creating change meant immersing myself in what I wanted to accomplish.
I had to educate myself and take action.
If you are sick of waiting to become happy, know that it takes a complete mindset shift.
Looking strong and feeling incredible doesn’t come from sporadic workouts or learning a few tips here and there.
Commit to improvement and education.
Commit to consistency.
Commit to owning what comes next.
