I can't argue with any of +Julie Read's points.

The most dramatic personal-growth phases tend to occur in the eighth year of each decade for me: 18, 28, and now 38. Slowly, slowly, slowly, then suddenly, something rips open and crackles through my skin, and when I look around again, everything is different. Including me.

The process is always messy. Uncomfortable. Embarrassing. Exhilarating. I relish every second, because past experiences indicate I’m on the path toward better.

Look around. You’ll start to recognize other queens. And kings.

There's a reason they call it muscle building—it's a lot like construction. I sat down with Mike Israetel, PhD of Renaissance Periodization where he gave me a blueprint for eating to gain, lose, and stay right where you are.

You can think your way to bigger gainz. (Probably.)

“First, I learned what it meant to get jacked. It meant hard work, bigger muscles, lots of food, clothing size changes, seeing my highest scale weight ever, having the most fun I’ve ever had in the gym, being more motivated than ever, and lots and lots of gym selfies and mirror checks.” - Kourtney Thomas

"But when it comes to building muscle size, however, external cues are no slam dunk. In fact, research indicates that internal cues may be superior in this context."

If you have good working understanding of the role momentum plays in many sports, you already know that the best way to evade your opponent is to use their own momentum against them in some way.

The same, I find, is true in life. Very little is more satisfying successfully redirect someone who is trying to come at you. To usher them along to where you’d like them to go. Such is my strategy for handling questionable “compliments.” I straight-up, straight-faced treat them as if they are the highest praise.

First of all, they may be trying to do just that, and giving someone the benefit of the doubt just good practice. Secondly, don’t underestimate your personal power in guiding the conversation.

Here’s my suggestion for dealing.
