(photo: Having a pool is often tied to notions of being able to swim for exercise… this lasts about a month and then it’s over)
There is an insidiously deceptive illusion that people who have great exercise habits are so lucky because they love exercising.
Take it from an expert insider.
It really is an illusion.
Thinking it as anything else is an outsider’s excuse.
“You talkin’ to me?”
“Yeah. I’m talkin’ to you.”
It’s a funny observation, human behavior. Always has been, hasn’t it?
Ever go to the park, to center city, to the mall, or just about any public place, and “people watch“?
This time of year there is an annual lying match to see who can tell the biggest lies. Crazy thing though, no one knows about it. And those that do know, could care less about the prize.
Why? Because there is no prize.
No prize for lying that is.
But there is a prize. It’s for resolve. And for creativity. For, indomitable will.
And when we stop lying and start the battle of our lives, then the prize will take care of itself.
