When you hear the words "be bigger", you most likely think of growing your muscle mass to a size that it's never been before. You know, “consume more protein, get that creatine in your system, train properly”. That is what you think will make you "bigger".
But, what if we told you that there was more to the concept of being “bigger?” The concept of being bigger can apply to multiple areas of life. Collectively, it allows you to grow as an individual on multiple levels. The more you diversify your concept of being bigger, the more you willactually grow.
People often hinder their progression as an individual and don't even realize it. The butterfly effect is real and applies to nothing more than your life in relation to the decisions you make in it. Though you see and recognize the external problems as the reasons behind you not growing as a person, the answer is that most of what is stopping you is inside yourself.
Let's dive into this concept of growth further.
Your definition.Visualize this. You wake up at 6am and go to the gym to hit the weights. Then, you go to work after and stay there until 5pm. After that, you head over to the local bar for a drink with your friends. You then go home and go to sleep. Rinse and repeat. The cadence you put into your own routine defines the individual you are. It defines who you hang out with, what you consider challenging, and (most importantly) how you perceive life.
Your perception. If there is one thing you can take away from reading this, it is the fact that your perception of life is the largest hindrance to becoming a bigger individual. The less you explore other avenues of experiences, search for new things to learn, and become complacent, the more limited your perception becomes.
Your dreams. You can't grow without dreaming. Think back to when you were a kid. You would have a different picture in your head of what you imagined your life being when you grew up. Then life came in and fucked it all up. Our dreams are our drivers. When you stop dreaming, your ability to be bigger is taken away.
Don't be concerned or lose hope of this. The beauty behind the concept of being bigger is the fact that it is entirely under your control. You are autonomous in the decisions you make, and can change your life in an instant. With that said, we wouldn't recommend a total overhaul of your life in order to grow as an individual. Instead, focus on three primary areas of growth and apply individual decisions of change in order to achieve the goal you're searching for.
Be Bigger, Mentally. Challenge yourself to learn something you know nothing about. Open your mind to different concepts and other ways of thinking. Become comfortable in the uncomfortable nature of not knowing how things will turn out. This is how you become mentally bigger.
Be Bigger, Emotionally. Go out with that friend you haven't seen in years. Call your parents and tell them you love them. Spend some extra time with your wife after a long day of work. Open up to your true emotions, recognizing your feelings openly and without judgement. These are all ways you can become an emotionally bigger individual.
Be Bigger, Physically. All you need for this are Kaged Supplements (we're totally joking). Try to beat that mile time you gave up chasing a year ago. Attend a fitness class that you've never done before. Commit to a consistent workout plan. Track your macros.. In the grand words of the almighty - just do it. This is how you become physically bigger.
Being bigger is much more than growing your muscle mass. We all need to take a step back for a moment and realize this. Too often, we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life that we lose sight of why we're actually here. We are here to truly live and make the most out of our short stay here on Earth.With that in mind, we challenge you. Take some time today and write down a list of actionable things you can do to change your path for the better. Consider things that youwant to do without considering whathinders you from achieving it. After that, build your roadmap to get it all. And do it because you can.
