We all start off the same way. Barring any alien or mutated animal intelligences that may be reading my article (in which case, thank you for your unlikely choice, interloper), we all began as some form similar to this meek and helpless little thing you see to the right. I think it is important to keep this in mind sometimes, as people are often very ready to exaggerate the facts in ways that imply they have forgotten their origin. You probably aren’t as strong or fit right now as you wish you were. Big deal. Neither am I. Neither is the bench press champion at your local gym. I doubt many world champions are either.
