During the summer of 2009, I was having some cement work done at my home. I finally got the chance to have my back yard cemented, which would serve me well for outside training. I went over and hired these very talented, and kind, South Americans from Ecuador to begin work on the cement project. One of their responsibilities was to have all of the cement and sand delivered to my place of residence. On the day the truck from Home Depot arrived, I noticed that the workers were having some slight trouble, in the 90 degree weather, brining the 100 pound bags of cement into the back yard. The men working at my house were not big at all. They looked like they weight about 120 to 140 pounds and not very strong but they worked very hard and had a great work ethic. I decided to help them a little. I began by taking up to two 100 pound bags of cement in at a time to speed things up a little. The men felt a little embarrassed but I reassured them that it’s ok; we are all different in size and strength and in many other ways, and we work well together.
The man in the truck made a stupid comment like most moronic liberal candy asses make. He said to me “Why are you showing them up like that? You should take one sack at a time.” I looked at this guy who looked nine months pregnant, and I said to him “Why should I feel bad? Is it because I am stronger than they are? So now, I have to feel bad because I have the discipline to train and build my body and because most people do not, I am supposed to feel inferior and guilty about that and because I am stronger, I must feel bad Right?”
You see, the comment that idiot made does not surprise me at all. The current culture in the USA has conditioned many people to feel guilty for being wealthy, healthy, for being in good shape and for possessing things that most people do not have or have the discipline to achieve.
Today’s culture wants you to be a weakling and to fit in with the controlled masses. We see it and hear it come Election Day from the liberal politicians. They constantly want those who are wealthier to give up more of what they have and feel guilty for having what they have. If my muscles and strength were tangible assets, I am certain that fat boy from the truck would want me to give up a portion of it to the guys working at my house even though I worked my ass off to build up my body, but that does not figure into it. That is how these people see it.These types of people definitely have a mental disorder.
Well, as before, enough. Enough, we must stand up to these fools and let them know where their place is, and that is not at the same level as those of us who sacrifice and work hard to achieve our goals.Those who think like that deserve nothing but a swift kick to the ball or ass, whichever is available at the time.
You should not feel guilty or inferior for having what you have especially if you have the discipline to work hard and achieve what you have.
I have a very disciplined bodybuilding lifestyle. Should I feel bad because the slob on line at the local McDonalds is out of shape and has no desire to do anything athletically or healthy for himself? I say no way. And the same goes for those who achieve financial success. God bless them. This should show all that if you stay focused on your goals, you too can achieve great things. In one of my recent blogs titled “Mentally Strong People: The 13 Things They Avoid rule number 9 states “Resent Other People’s Success. It takes strength of character to feel genuine joy and excitement for other people’s success. Mentally strong people have this ability. They don’t become jealous or resentful when others succeed (although they may take close notes on what the individual did well). They are willing to work hard for their own chances at success, without relying on shortcuts.
That fat slob in the truck is a mentally weak idiot. And you know what, the Ecuadorian contractors didn’t really care that I was stronger than they were. Once I reassured them, they were very happy and grateful that I helped them. Plus they did a great job and I paid them very, very well.
Never let a pee on lecture you on what he or she thinks is appropriate. These people never accomplish anything and they are nothing more than malcontents. Never apologize for your strength and muscle development and size.
Until next time..
