If I were overweight, running would be a huge challenge for me.Again, eating healthy is good and all, but that takes effort too, and changing your eating habits is not exactly an exciting proposition – which is why a ton of people don’t do it. The right advice is to find a solution to the actual problem: their laziness, lack of drive, lack of self-worth, lack of self-esteem, etc.Shortly after I met some friends which kick started my journey into self-improvement and the life I live now.I started to play “DOTA” for a few months before I decided to take my life more seriously.This is something I found out in September 2009, when I started to play them again. I moved out there to get away from Calgary and to experience something new.It was also a challenge to myself to see if I could move to another city and make new friends.For Parents: How do you help your son/daughter quit playing video games? The tragedy is that many of the people playing video games night after night are aware of this too! (If this is you, you’ve come to the right place.) One night you decide you have had enough and you try to quit. The reason they are playing video games is to avoid studying!
I told him not to do it, because I wasn’t playing any games anymore. I was laughing on the outside but inside I was pissed. I gave in and played a few games with him, where he absolutely crushed me.
A day or two after I moved in, one of my roommates, Ben, and I began to discuss our previous involvement in competitive video games, specifically the game Starcraft.
I mentioned how I took the game very seriously and “was very good”.
Does anybody like hearing that predictable advice anyways? An example of this is the common advice given to people that are overweight – specifically the ones who are overweight and do something about it.. But a major reason these people are overweight is because they’re lazy.
I don’t know if you’re like me, but when I read that predictable advice it just pisses me off. What’s the common advice you get when you’re overweight? (I know it’s not the only reason, but let’s be real here, it’s a major one.) If someone is lazy, are they really going to go running? I’m an athletic guy, I’m driven, and the amount of effort it takes me to go for a run is tremendous.
I knew the absolute only way this was going to be possible was if I stopped playing video games all together, so I decided that was exactly what I was going to do, and in October 2007 I quit them cold mother fuckin’ turkey. There were days when I had a massive desire to go play, but I had to stay committed to not touching any of them no matter what.
