Choose your tribe wisely. If you are the smartest person in the room...there is an issue. Choose those that lift you, those that celebrate you, those that are honest, those that respect you and those that make you want to be a better person. You should always be wanting to grow. Research says you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. What does this mean for you? Do you have to expand your network and meet new and interesting people? Are you already surrounded by legends? You should never leave social encounters feeling worse. If you do...definitely time to find a new tribe x pic coutesy of @fuckjerry
Hari ini 22 Agustus 2018 atau 10 Dzulhijjah 1439 H, kita memperingati Hari Raya Idul Adha atau Idul Qurban atau dikenal pula sebagai Hari Raya Haji
Hari Raya Idul Adha mengandung 3 pembelajaran. Pertama, ketakwaan. Kedua, hubungan antar manusia. Ketiga, peningkatan kualitas diri.
Ini merupakan hikmah yg dapat diambil dari Hari Raya Idul Adha karena pada hakikatnya semua umat manusia di muka bumi itu sama, yg membedakan adalah ketakwaan yg tercermin pada peningkatan kualitas diri yg lebih baik.
Semoga kita tidak hanya larut dengan euforia Idul Qurban saja, namun juga bisa dijadikan sebagai sarana peningkatan kualitas diri yg lebih baik lagi ke depannya.
Segenap Karyawan dan Siswa/i SMARTPLUS HARAPAN INDAH mengucapkan selamat menunaikan ibadah haji semoga diberikan kelancaran dan SELAMAT HARI RAYA IDUL ADHA 1439 H 🙏
ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR, LAA ILAA HA ILLA ALLAHU WA ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR WA LILLAAHILHAMD
Tak lupa kami juga mengajak untuk terus mendoakan saudara kita yg berada di Lombok, NTB agar lekas diberi ketenangan dengan dihentikannya musibah yg kini menimpa saudara kita. Semoga saudara kita diberikan ketabahan dan keikhlasan dalam menghadapi musibah kali ini 🙏🙏
Although I’m pale and fluffy in these pics, they might be two of my favorite shots I have to date 💥
As bodybuilders we spend 99% of our time looking nothing like we do on stage and it can take time to come to terms with that and see it all as a part of the process. For me, these pictures are evidence of my progression over the last few years and proof that the hard work and sacrifices are 100% worth it ⚡️✅ @nolimitsfit #TrainWithNoLimits
At this point in time, I have identified one main goal in life: make my younger-self proud of what I've achieved. To make that kid happy and proud of what he was meant to become in the future. It almost sounds like a mission statement. When will it be enough to make that kid "properly" happy? I haven't figured that out yet.
The last year has been a very interesting one and many things changed. Work, friends... I've truly loved somebody again. Yes, I really did. I'm very happy because I thought it was not going to happen again. Oh hey, I turned 30.
I have to admit that I haven't been so soft with myself and with whoever revolved around me. I guess up to some point you can be tough with yourself if you believe you're strong enough. All this may just because you want to get and be better.
Talking from personal experience, a problem that may arise is that when you start to ask a lot from yourself, it's easy for you to ask a lot from the people around you. Maybe you just want them to be as logical as you are so you start pushing them, maybe up to the point where they hate even just hearing the word "logic". So what happens to your family? Friends and partners? Those who respectfully sit there silent "taking all the shit from you" and don't understand why you act like that. I've built and then broken very important relationships. Fortunately, some of them got right back in my life even stronger than before. Who's to blame for what went wrong? Me? Them? I guess it just doesn't matter. What does matter is acknowledging that in life sometimes we have to deal with compromises, and there is nothing wrong with that. Aiming for perfection works with machines, with people it's another story.
It's more clear in my head that when you find the right people you have to hold them tight, with all your strength, because you need them.
I know, I know I've been "a bit" bad and no excuses, I just don't like them (the excuses of course).
I will just say "sorry, and sorry again, but I really can't disappoint that kid". :) #lifeGoals#italian#kid#proud#mission#goals#motivation#future#better#family#brother#friends#love#relationships#experience#work#ambition#change#lesson
Reboot #5 is behind me!! Yippee! Feeling fabulous this morning and love that I was able to do it with four other reboot buddies back in the States along with a larger community of rebooters all over the world! Breaking the fast with a yummy KetoKreme mixed with my favourite dandelion tea, followed by a super smoothie with all my favourite stuff in it (including avocados, cacao and greens). Who wants to join me next month??
Have you ever back slid? In any area of your life....whether it’s fitness, relationships, finances, etc??? Here lately, it seems that’s all I do. I have questioned myself so many times “what's the point?!?!”
Then, I REMEMBER what was. I REMEMBER and REMIND myself of what is possible. I get over my embarrassment and frustration and TRY AGAIN. *
I am STRONG! *
I can choose STUCK or I can choose to START.
It takes humility...
... the humility to accept where I am.
It takes focus...
... the focus to keep my eyes on what I'm working on now, in the present and not on where other people are in their lives.
It takes perspective...
... if I can do it once, I can do it again.
It takes action.
THAT comes from the accountability from my online home fitness challenge groups and the role that I took on in 2016 as an accountability coach.
If you need that too, send me a message!
You can join me from home on your schedule.
Don't ever get stuck too long in where you were.
Use it as a reminder of what's possible. //🖤🤘🏼
