Working out and keeping healthy is a great way to build confidence and start on the personal development path.
There is a misconception out there that people who are into fitness are self obsessed egotists who think that big muscles make them a superior type of man. That's not the case at all. There is nothing wrong with being fit and healthy. In fact it is desirable for your confidence and for the personal development lessons.
It takes time, effort and discipline to build a strong and lean body. It is not something that happens overnight. You have to set challenging goals and force both mind and body to push through the physical pain and the mental hurdles and insecurities that are thrown at you.
If you carry emotional insecurities or are looking to learn the art of self improvement, health and fitness is the best place to start. With fitness there are no excuses, there is just you and the bar.
This does have a positive impact on your relationships. Obviously, it helps you in the looks department, although that is the smallest benefit. The biggest benefit is that you become a man who is productive, a doer and a high achiever. You become a man that has effective habits, a man who can set progressively harder goals and achieve them. You develop drive, tenacity and purpose.
All of these are attractive traits. The gym is not the only place to
develop these but it is a really good place to start.
These are not simply a trimmer waist, more energy and being better at sport. Fitness is a key place to hone the skills of personal development. You learn goal setting, breaking through the pain barrier, pushing yourself, discipline and focus. The body is easily measured and success is very apparent. If you can learn the principles of success with physical fitness you can apply them to any endeavour.
Being fit with a good body may give you an advantage with the ladies but it will not be decisive on its own. However the positive character traits and confidence that weightlifting will give you will have a massive impact on your success with women.
The benefits of weightlifting are such that all men should lift weight as a matter of course. A strong body equals a strong mind.
Having a six pack is not a sign of vanity. It is a sign that you can work hard, make sacrifices and that you care about your health. Getting a six pack is not easy, it shows determination and stickability.
It is good to set the goal of achieving a six pack. Not because of result, it means very little in itself. But because of the transformation you must go through to achieve what for most is a very challenging feat. You will not be the same afterwards.
People chase the secret to six pack abs like the holy grail. But it doesn't exist. All you need is hard work and the ability to commit for a period of time. The secret to a six pack is good nutrition, cardio and strength training. It isn't hidden knowledge, but it is hard to do.
