That’s right. Call it what you want, but you either already are, or you’re rapidly becoming an expert in rogue training methods and nutritional strategies. Relative to the vast majority of people, it’s different. It’s weird. And, it’s changing your life. Given that it’s so far off the beaten path it naturally garners an exclusive, secretive feel.
Go ahead.. call yourself a ninja.
I’m here to give you a couple ways to operate with your newfound knowledge and skill set in a world that isn’t yet primed for your unorthodoxy. Here are a few strategies to be impactful while assimilating to “real life:”
- Always eat birthday cake. The moment you wave off the slice of cake passed to you at the party, your cover is blown. No, it’s not real food and it makes for a low performance evening, but being a party pooper never started a meaningful revolution.
- Answer, but do not preach. Your lifestyle of lifting heavy weight, sprinting, pulling, pushing, and eating plants and animals is shocking, overwhelming, and sometimes down right offensive. No matter how much you know you can help your friends and family by sharing your fitness activities with them. DON’T! No one likes a dietary preacher. They will ask.. only answer their questions.
- Have fun! Monotonous training, diets, and cleanses all have two things in common.. they aren’t effective and they aren’t fun. Your life of comfort and freedom is more likely to influence positive change in those around you. As long as they think you’re on a diet and killing yourself one workout at a time, your cultish obsession will repel them.
As we build positive change in our community and build our influence, it’s important to not be “that guy.” No one wants to hear about their brown rice spiking their insulin or that they won’t get osteoporosis if they give up 2% milk. What should you do? Just continue to be better than the previous day and lead by example.
Like I’ve said before, “Eat clean, but don’t be an idiot about it.” Let’s change the world!
