The guys still playing in one of sports most physically demanding positions at the age of 38.
And – you may not like this – but he has one controversial opinion…
That’s been getting some press again recently after the debate about whether kids should keep score and league tables in sport…
Here’s what he said:
“I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies!
While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage tthem till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy.
I’m sorry I’m not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned
and I’m not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best…
because sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better…
not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy”
This guy is NFL player James Harrison writing on Instagram after his two sons were given participation trophies
and I have to admit…
I do agree.
I’m passionate about family life and seeing everyone around you be happy
^^^ hence why I’m always talking about NOT letting crazy diets stop you eating your favourite foods and enjoying meals out with friends and family (as I once did)
But sometimes, I wonder if trophies like this are priming us to miss the value of DOING THE WORK.
Don’t you think?
It reminds me of all these January 1st crash diets
We start the diet super motivated thinking that it’s gonna be all glitter
and that when we drop a few pounds doing whatever it takes that we’ll be happy
Only to then get a harsh dose of reality
And just like James Harrison says…
‘trying your best’ on a cookie-cutter diet that leaves you craving all your favourite foods and burning out the motor on your Nutri Bullet…is often NOT good enough
and blaming yourself does nothing
You just have to get better
and the best way to get better at losing weight and keeping it off?
START LEARNING HOW DIFFERENT TYPES AND AMOUNTS OF FOODS WORK FOR YOU AND YOUR LIFESTYLE
Because, whether you like it or not…
Losing weight and actually keep it off…
Lives and dies
On whether you can STICK to the ‘diet’ long-term
^^^ Meaning it has to fit your lifestyle!
