I recently took a trip to North for a nice maple leaf sightseeing tour in Ontario, Canada.
The view was certainly spectacular, it made me appreciate just how beautiful this country actually is, for different seasons and cities.
On my last day of the day, I woke up as usual at 5am and did my morning workout routine, while I was riding the stationary bike, I saw the sign on the hotel gym wall, I can’t remember the exact words but it goes something like
“if you feel any sign of discomfort, stop the exercise immediately and seek for a doctor”
I almost fell off my bike.
“Any sign of discomfort, STOP!!!”
I know the hotel manager has a good intention, or simply want to prevent possible lawsuit.
But this is exactly the mentally of our generation nowadays.
We don’t want any discomfort, we don’t want to feel bad in any form, physical or emotional.
Schools and teachers stop rating kids, they shouldn’t use red ink because that’s bad for their self-esteem, there shouldn’t be winners because that imply others are losers, there shouldn’t be metals because everyone is equal and great and everyone deserves a participation award.
Jesus, are we back in Soviet Union or China again? Hasn’t the communism been tested and failed enough times?
In order to burn some calories, your heart rate needs to go up to certain beats that will cause you to feel uncomfortable, needless to say, you train your cardiovascular muscles and eventually become stronger and healthier
In order to build muscle, you need to lift weights that are heavy enough to break down your muscle fiber, so they can grow bigger and stronger to protect your bones. Needless to say, you will feel uncomfortable.
In order to become a successful sales, you need to get used to rejections, countless rejections to become good at influence people. Needless to say, you’re not gong to feel so comfortable.
And of course, in order to trade well, you must take small losses, in fact, losing is part of the game, no loss, no risk, no gain.
Maybe I’ve become too old to get in touch with the new generations, but this thinking of entitlement and liberal & socialism thinking just getting most disgusting for me every day.
The world is not all pretty and nice, life is a competition, and we get to where we are by dominated and won over other species, we kill and eat them every day.
In fact, the very fact that you’re here and reading this means that you were the winner out of the competition of the sperms. You've beaten every other sperms to reach that egg, congratulation.
Embrace the discomfort, that’s how you grow in this life.
