They say a photo is worth a thousand words and I believe it to be true. The following photograph is one I have in my office at home. I keep it there to remind me that no matter what, no matter how meager the facilities I sometimes have available to workout in or how little equipment I have at my disposal, there are always those who are making it happen with much, much less. It’s a good reminder to just zip my lips when I want to complain. Sometimes a little perspective goes a long way.
I lifted this photo from bodybuilding.com a while ago (more than a couple years). I wish I could remember who originally posted it so I could give credit. I know he was one of our hardworking troops and the photo was taken overseas but he was not someone I communicated with regularly hence my inability to remember exactly where I got it. Nevertheless, it was posted publicly and therefore I don’t think he would mind me re-posting it especially since I find it so powerful and I’ll bet you will too.
So now what can you say about what you’ve got to work with? Right…could be a lot worse! Be encouraged. Keep going!
