He took into consideration my weight, my looks and "other attributes" that could improve my score.
Points were awarded for my witty personality and the fact that I had all my teeth.
His friends (married, no less) joined in the fun and 180 Facebook comments later, my ranking was decided.
After publicly scrutinizing my appearance, after deciding my body fat fit his acceptable upper limits..
…I was awarded a paltry 3 on his personal hot or not scale.
A 3 <<<< you read it right.
And so what does one think about such a degrading and public humiliation?
Does one take it to heart…? Meh.
Does one retaliate with insecurity and anger…? Nah.
Does one look at the source of the mockery and ask if it's even worth getting mad over…? Probably should, but that sounds like too much work.
No, instead I'm going to use this experience to remind my readers that there is only one opinion you can trust:
Ultimately what you think about yourself trumps anything anyone else can say, do or rate.
Now, I know I'm going to get a landslide of feedback on this email… And, if he's lucky, maybe I'll send him some of your tidbits…
But what I am here to do today is to instill in you an unshakeable confidence.
A confidence that means no-one can break you. A confidence that means no comment should puncture you.
Now, the fastest way I know to grow your ego and confidence to the indomitable size and stature of Mount Everest is to become *physically* strong.
Not yoga strong. Not pilates strong.
No no, I mean strong strong.
Like toned muscles, flat abs and juicy round squat-butt strong.
Like pull up strong. Like 50 full push ups strong. Like so strong you can slap a silly "rate my tits" subscriber upside the head and give him whip lash….
Yes. To be physically strong is to be mentally strong and well, that's exactly what we preach and practice at 10,000 Strong.
We don't care about your size and your shape…we are not here to squash you into a one size fits all mold. What we do care about is that the body you have is strong, it's healthy, it's lean and that your pert squat butt leaves men drooling as you strut on by….
Of course, like anything worthwhile doing, it'll take a few months to get there….
But hell, all we got is time….right?
