Elementary School Nightmare
When I went from elementary school to junior high school it was particularly terrifying because when I was in elementary school I had a lot of friends that I had made over the years. I was familiar with the location. but when I went to junior high school it was completely new and I didn’t know anybody.
Everybody is aware of the concept of building stronger muscles. The idea is fairly simple. You break down the individual muscle fibers through exercise and when your muscle fibers rebuild they get a little bit stronger.
This is obvious but is also a very ingenious invention by mother nature because we have this skeletal system combined with our musculature system which can create essentially in an infinite ranges of motion.
Genius Mother Nature
If you’re some ancient human human what you begin to do on a regular basis to get your needs met whatever you’re doing on a regular basis is going to get easier and easier over time because whatever you’re doing is going to be exercising those muscles over and over.
As you exercise those muscles over and over a little get stronger and gain more endurance so whatever you’re doing will become easier and more efficient.
One of the most interesting times in human history was after the first Ice Age started to end and the glaciers started to recede you had this area in what is known as the Fertile Crescent, which is a kind of around Mesopotamia near the Mediterranean Sea. This is where a lot of historians believe was the actual place that the mythological garden of Eden was.
Goldilocks Never Lasts Long
We had this Goldilocks condition were humans were there were not a lot of humans and so getting food was very very easy because soon after the ice age ended there was all kinds of fruit bearing trees and plants everywhere there’s a lot of animals that were easy to catch.
If you were alive during that time period it was very very easy to get enough food to live. So easy you didn’t really have to do anything. You just had to go out looking for something to eat and you usually found it pretty easy.
There’s a common idea in a lot of self development circles that hard times make hard men hard men make good times good times make soft men and soft men make hard times and the cycle repeats over and over.
Cycles And Cycles Everywhere
Everywhere you look you can find this happening. You can see this happening in your life. If you can imagine times in your life where you begin to get complacent and then something happens and if you don’t respond to that something happening something even worse will happen so you’re kind of forced out of your comfort zone.
When you’re forced out of your comfort zone you have to create new strategies. Once you figure out those new strategies those new strategies will create a slightly larger comfort zone and then you can relax again into the slightly larger comfort zone until something else happens that forces you out of that comfort zone.
This is essentially the process of human history. If you look at all the different inventions humans have invented since the dawn of time they’ve all been born of necessity. They say that necessity is the mother of invention and this is exactly why nobody really invents something until you actually have to do that.
Only When Forced
Nobody really rises to the occasion until some type of unexpected external thing forces us to rise to the occasion. When those unexpected events come out us we essentially have two ways to respond. We can rise to the occasion think creatively figure out a solution or we can let those external things destroy us.
This is essentially the story of each individual life. We’re complacent as long as we can until something forces us out of our comfort zone and once we are forced out of our comfort zone we are forced to create new ideas.
This is the story of the hero’s journey. Every hero’s journey starts with a guy that’s complacent and then some kind of external situation forces him out of his comfort zone and as the hero is forced out of his comfort zone he goes on the hero’s journey becomes, the hero and destroys the bad guy.
Easy Life Doesn’t Last Long
The Goldilocks time and the Fertile Crescent didn’t last long because it was only a matter of time before people started to reproduce and eventually there was too many people for that natural abundant Fertile Crescent to support everyone.
This forced humanity to invent a new way to get food and that new way to get food that they were forced to invent was agriculture. We essentially get food the same way today, mostly through agriculture. Once they invented agriculture that gave rise to the next level of society essentially what were living on today and most of the food we get is through agriculture.
When you exercise your muscles on purpose there are essentially to basic ways to do that. One is for function, where you can use a natural response of your muscles to get stronger by creating a more functional body for sports or you can exercise your muscles for form.
Form Looks Good
Form so you can look good. If you can think of two different types of people the people that exercise their muscles for function and the people that exercise their muscles for form you can get to clear ideas in your mind of who these people might be.
After a couple of months at my junior high school I started to make some new friends and eventually I was having just as much fun if not more so than I did in my elementary school. It was almost I had a forced upgrade of my personality which wouldn’t have happened had I stayed with all my old friends at my old elementary school.
Adapt Or Die
Whenever you see something that’s threatening to push you out of your comfort zone you can welcome that because that is going to help you come up with new strategies that will help you get to the next level.
