You know those people who go to the gym, take a gazillion selfies, and blast them all over Instagram? Or the one who always complains about how hot and sweaty their run was in Twitter…this is for those people.
Whether this applies to fitness, studying, or just good habits like drinking water, loudly sharing your actions with the world does nothing to being you closer to your goals. Whether you put your five mile run on social media or not, it’s still a 5 mile run. It’s still an accomplishment. It’s still progress.
The number of times your feet hit the pavement is more important that the number of likes or shares you get. 100% of the time. Getting two dozens likes does not bring you closer to your goal. Getting the workout done does.
Work hard in silence, let success be your noise. Let your hard work show when the time is right. Put your nose to the grind and work your ass off for whatever it is that you want to accomplish in the world. Do not turn outwards for external validation that what you’re doing is “right” or “wrong” or what you “should” be doing. Do whatever the crap you want and what you put in will be what you out of it.
