Ladies, Competition Not Cattiness!
I see a lot of women get caught up in constantly comparing themselves against others; “who’s skinnier” “who’s more toned” “who is too muscular” “who has cellulite” “who shouldn’t be wearing that tight dress” or “who has an amazing body but shows off too much skin”, and the list goes on and on. Instead of picking one another apart while at the same time comparing yourself to others, focus on being the absolute best version of YOU that you can be. Be confident and proud of yourself and provide encouragement and a support system for other women in your life. Be genuinely happy for others in their successes versus harboring jealousies and resentments. Be a breeding ground for positivity. Laughing at ourselves when we screw up and then getting right back at it to try again is what makes us human. The more we work on accepting our setbacks and learning and growing from them, along with being openly vulnerable, the more we can begin to banish cattiness and be truly accepting of ourselves and of others.
I was taking a yoga class a couple weeks ago and the instructor said to the class as we held our thumbs to forehead center “think kind thoughts; speak kind words”, this resonated with me and I would expand upon that to “do kind things”. The mantra that surrounds JFit 360° is “fit from every angle”; being fit on the outside and the inside, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. We should all strive to have our whole “being” in a constant “fit” state. When I catch myself being catty or judgmental of someone else or of myself, I acknowledge it, stop doing it and move on. Competitiveness can be good, it can drive you to accomplish things you never dreamed were even possible, to push harder to reach your goals. Just make sure what your competing for is helping you reach YOUR dreams rather than just trying to beat someone for the sake of being “better” than them.
