A young boy wanted to have the best body on the planet, he decided never to hit the gym nor engage in any form of physical or mental exercise. He simply couldn’t subject his body to any form of rigorous exercise. Whenever he faced one; he ran as fast as Usain Bolt away from the exercise. He literarily grew to a man with little or no subjection of a single muscle. One day he stood opposite the mirror and saw a monstrous looking being. He had drum-belly (that’s if there is something like that), with lots of fat in the wrong places. He would easily pass for a monster.
“This wasn’t the body I wanted” he roared. “I wanted to look great, I wanted to hone the frame of world class model but here I am trapped in a sack of shame and disgust” he lamented bitterly. He simply wanted to be the best without engaging in what the best did or overcome what the best overcame.
