Average crowd in Dairy Queen…….

” The worst thing I can be, is the same as everybody else. I’d hate that.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger
The average person in America is overweight or obese. Most people are soft, physically and mentally. The average person is in debt or living pay check to paycheck. The average person is miserable during M-F 9 to 5. The average person knows they should be going to the gym and practicing better health habits, but promise themselves next time or tomorrow will be different. The average person has no idea how it feels to push their body to the limit and the feeling of exhilaration and pride when conquering a tough goal, or succeeding in a tough challenge.
Who in the world would want to live like this?
This is no way to go through your short existence.
Now you can call this self-centered or arrogant, but I don’t view myself as average. And I hope you don’t either. For some people, they are content to be average. And that’s fine. But some people strive to be better than average. And that should be acceptable as well.
Recently, I have been thinking about this mentality often. I cannot think of a better example then walking into a fast food establishment such as a Dairy Queen. The crowd is unattractive, unfit, and unsightly due to excess fat and lack of muscle tone.
It is a nice feeling when you know you look nothing like the rest of the crowd. It is nice to know you have put in the time and effort to improve and maintain the permanent place you live. (your body) It’s nice to know display gratefulness of your body and health by taking proper care of it.
In this sense, yes you are better than everyone else. And there’s no reason to feel guilty about this. That is of course as long as you keep your thoughts to yourself.
