______________________________
The Myth of Sacrifice
For those of you who are newer to our community, you may not know that one of the unofficial mottos of Craic is “this shit ain’t free.” This is a cheeky and simple way of saying that consistent hard work is required to achieve your goals. This is true whether you’re talking about fitness, nutrition or lifestyle related goals.
It’s often true that the more you want something (for instance, x), the harder you’ll have to work for it. The good news is that if you genuinely care about x, then doing the hard work to achieve x won’t seem like a sacrifice. Instead, it’ll seem like exactly what it is: consistent hard work.
Here’s my beef with the word “sacrifice”: to me, it implies a forced or unwanted choice and leaves open the risk of a “grass is greener” mentality. But this is never really the case. We are rarely presented with two choices and a gun to our heads, after all. A choice may be difficult (passing up a lunch date so I can go work out, for instance), but in the end we go with what we want. This is not making a sacrifice. This is being a grown-up.
I challenge you to stop thinking in terms of “making sacrifices” for your health, your career, your family, or whatever else that you feel is important to you. Sure, a lot of you are “giving up” bread for the No Bread challenge, but I want you to realize that it is not a sacrifice but a choice you are making that is better for your health. An informed choice, no less, and one that is probably really hard! “I’m choosing to eat healthier foods for the next fifty days.” Now doesn’t that sound more empowering than, “I can’t eat that!”
And if this just sounds like a matter of semantics to you…the way you speak to yourself and others dramatically affects your perspective on life, in which case I would argue that semantics are pretty damn important.
