Apparently one of my friends has decided to quit athletics as he doesn't think he can ever be as good as the two top guys in his team.
That kind of attitude sucks!
The truth is unless you are super-talented and have the work-ethic of a shire horse on speed, there will always be someone better than you.
There will always be someone thinner, leaner, faster, stronger or more muscley than you.
That doesn't mean you can't stand out.
That doesn't mean you can't achieve great things.
Harness competition rather than quitting.
If something is worth doing, or worth having, there will always be competition for the prize on offer.
The fact is there is never just one prize on offer and second and third place usually carry massive value as well.
Ladies, if you're a Size 10 and have body fat of 15% you may not have quite as good a body as a Size 8 at 12% body fat but you'll still look damn good!
So use competition as a benchmark and a target to aim for but never, ever, ever quit until you have tried everything!
Live life in the fast lane,
