It has been a few weeks since I last posted a blog and to be honest I have been struggling in my mind about what to blog about. Finally, I was able to formulate into words something that I have given a lot of thought to lately and in the past.
I am sure everyone is familiar with two very strong and very negative emotions; Jealousy and Envy...
I will hold my hand up and say that I have gone though the sport of bodybuilding having many moments of jealousy and envy towards others.

So, if you are going though the same thing as I did then I can say without doubt that your life will improve once your eliminate these negative feelings.

Stay focused on your goals and on improving yourself because those are the only things you can control.
Have a great week! Thanks for reading! Time for my next meal!
