Rock hard abs are something that it seems every young man – and a fair proportion of girls, too – are expected to want to cultivate in order to be the best they can be. It can lead to issues with self-image and it can also lead to painful struggles with a process that is always going to take time. In order to make sure that you achieve the look you are going for, you need patience.
Many people will become disillusioned with the search for the perfect abs. It is not difficult to see why this happens – when we want something, we always want it “now”, and we are not well conditioned to wait. We are not conditioned to expect to work hard and we don’t deal well with setbacks, but the truth of the matter is that when it comes to getting perfect abs, we will have to wait and we may have points where we hit a wall.
This being the case, it is easy to understand why people become discouraged, and to see why they conclude that there is no point in chasing after something that appears impossible. However, it is not impossible to get the perfect abs. It is difficult, and there is a world of difference between difficult and impossible. Difficult things can be done, but they take hard work. Impossible things can be ignored because they are impossible.
A lot of mental strength is required to get the abs you feel you deserve. Once you have put in the hard work you will see the benefits, and although it is always difficult to push yourself the extra mile, it is a test worth enduring and passing.
