Speaking of puffery…
It’s often difficult to create accurate mental representations b/c so much of our sensory experience is “airbrushed” so to speak.
…ie, it’s easier to conjure the puffered, advertised ideal of something over the real image.
Take stock moving into Autumn.
Are you achieving your fitness goals?
Have you even clarified what the goal, the end of all this is?
Is your diet tight?
What do you expect it to look like in your mind…and what is it?
Do you spend energy trying to justify, puffer your food choices each day?
Are your workouts puffered? Lots of bluster but no real, thoughtful, sensible program and progression?
Is your gym like the TV Big Mac, lots of superficial bells & whistles but where even at its most attractive angle, in reality, it still looks like a sh$t burger?
A key to intrapersonal and interpersonal growth is begin to separate puffery from reality.
Stagnating, spinning our wheels, going in circles is only exacerbated
…when we tell ourselves or others how great, incredible and amazing things are
…in the face of insurmountable evidence to the contrary (even at its most attractive angle)
Draw a line in the sand for your Autumn goals.
Call them out, objectively identify them.
Set out to achieve them.
It’s actually more difficult, a greater expenditure of emotional energy, to do different.
It is what it is, things are as they are.
And no amount of puffer-ing changes that.
