His Dad was in the S.A.S ……. I’m sure that was one of his……..
>his family all being millionaires…
>swimming in a pool of cash….
>being best friends with famous people…
>pretty much being a superhero…
the list goes on & on…….
‘He’ in this case was a guy I went to college with, & let’s just say he was prone to a bit of exaggeration.
I’m sure you know the type, one of those kind of ‘you name it, he’s done it, he’s been there, he’s bought the T shirt’ type of guys.
Anyway, this got me thinking, in a world of exaggeration, marketing, lies, deception & hype; there is one thing that will NEVER lie to you….
Think about it……
>You get ill, does your body lie & tell you are well?
>You eat something you are allergic to, does your body react or does it ignore it & pretend it didn’t happen?
>You increase your calories & decrease your exercise, does your body pretend you haven’t or do you (typically) put weight on?
>You get tired, burnt out & stressed, does your body react? Do you look physically different as a result?
What is happens is, YOU start to lie to yourself…..
You convince yourself everything is ok…….
>That you aren’t tired.
>That you aren’t stressed.
>That you are still confident.
>That you aren’t bothered about how you feel or look….
I get it, I understand, we ALL do this, myself included.
We soldier on, we ignore the signs, and we ignore the truths that our bodies are telling us.
The reality is that you can do this for so long, but eventually this will catch up with you, the challenge is not to leave it too late….. Some things just can’t be ignored.
That’s all for today, until the next time,
Tristan ‘body doesn’t lie’ Buttle.
P.S – I wondering what he is doing now (the guy from college), probably saving the world or learning to fly, or both……bless him, wonder if his dad is still in the S.A.S
