Spread Love, Not Hate
You are responsible for your life.
If you don't like something about your existence, it's up to you to change it. You can't expect anyone else to help you—I've said this time and time again, but no one owes you anything in this world. Nobody can get in shape for you, or become your greatest self for you. No one has the ability to help you in the ways you need most other than you.
Stop waiting on other people to do something for your life.
We live in a society where people get angry at others for taking their lives to the next level. If you become the greatest version of yourself, you will lose friends. You will lack the support you assumed you'd have. It's human nature to feel jealous when someone else is closer to achieving their dreams than us, but I know that you and I can do better.
Let me tell you something—if you've always got something to say about someone else's life, it only means one thing. It means that you aren't working hard enough on your own life. If you're always paying attention to what other people are doing, you are blind to what you should be doing.
If somebody out there is closer to achieving their goals than you are, don't hate on them.
If somebody you know is absolutely killing it, I want you to use their success as motivation. If you see somebody who's at where you want to be, instead of trying to justify why they don't deserve to be there, you should be getting closer to them to see how they got there. If you see somebody who's doing what you want to be doing, instead of hating on what they're doing, I want you to figure out how they got to where they are. I want you to turn your jealousy into motivation.
When I go out and run and I see someone on the trails who's making me look like I'm doing nothing, I try to keep up with them. I ask them questions about their diets and their training. If I see somebody doing better than me in any area of life, I use their existence to show me that my dreams are possible.
In life, many of us are too full of insecurity to progress. We let our insecurities make us hate on other people instead of learning from them, and we ignore the work they put in to get where they are.
Everybody wants something in life, so whoever you are, you are no exception.
Let me tell you something—if you want to become your greatest self, you need to spread love instead of hate. You need to learn lessons instead of picking people apart.
It all starts with you.
