1. Always compare yourself to others

2. Measure your strength by how much you can lift.

3. Forget that you are unique.


It took me over half a century to learn this. Hopefully this will help others learn it in less time!

Eddy1,

Great post!!!

I could not agree with you more.

I learned this lesson when I was in my early teens and I asked my Uncle Milo to show me how he did his Atlas Push-Ups.

I said to him, "Uncle Milo, I'd like to watch you do a set of Atlas Push-Ups." His response was, "Why?"

I answered by telling him. "Because I know that you'd be doing them right and then I'll just copy the way you do it." He then said to me, "Jackson, you've got it all wrong. I can show you how to do Atlas Push-ups that are the right way for me but not for you. Look, you've already come a long way and as your body grows and matures it will become really well developed but YOU have to make the Atlas exercises your own. Make them as tough as you can and don't try to copy anybody...when you copy the way others do anything...you're second rate at everything you do...so don't."

I got the message and have never judged myself by anyone else's standards. The only standard that matters for me...is my own.

I hope everyone reads and applies your message.

---John Peterson
