"Did you know that if your palm is bigger than your face, you have cancer?"
To his delight, I opened my hand and brought it close to my face to see if indeed it was true. A few seconds later, I had a bloody nose and an embarassed ego.
The young kid had known I was going to see if my palm was bigger than my face, and when I went to measure it, he pushed my hand smack dab into my nose. If I was a little younger, I probably would have chased him down and done the same thing to him. I decided it might not look good if a 23 year old beat up a 12 year old at a high school baseball game, and proceeded to just laughed it off.
Did I think if my palm was bigger than my face that I had cancer? Not really. Rather than just believing what the young boy told me, I decided to check for myself.
My point is that, too often we listen to others and believe everything they say, rather than figuring out the truth on our own. This becomes a problem in the fitness world as there are thousands of "professionals" out there trying to make a quick buck by telling you what you believe to be the truth in order to sell you their product.
When you aren't sure of something, it's a great idea to ask for help. It's an even better idea to look up the answer for yourself. Where do you look for the answer you might ask? Well, if it's a fitness, nutrition, or sport performance question, no better place to look than TrueFitnessLeadership.com!
Don't rely on others for answers all the time. Get off your butt and do some research on your own!
Make it happen.
