Withholding Yourself From Life

“You know that life cannot withhold itself from you. All that is and has is fully given to you to enjoy.”- Ernest Holmes

Why are you hiding your talents. Don’t hide your talents. The world needs your talents. The world needs your talents. Isolation is not the answer to your problems. Instead of isolating yourself, instead of withholding yourself from others, why not connect with them.

Life has given you everything to enjoy. Why are you not enjoying it? It is yours to enjoy. Don’t isolate yourself from your growth. Because your growth is not coming to you. You have got to go meet your growth and take it home with you.

If you want to succeed, you must embrace life. You must make time to create your life. But you can’t create your life alone. You need people to help you. Remember, you create your life by your own choice.

And if you don’t make the choice to live your life, you are asking other people to make your decisions for you. Do you want other people to control your life, or do you want to control your own life? The choice is yours.

Trying To Be Better Than Yourself

It is okay to dream big, but you must do the work to make your dream happen. It is just a dream without action. And nothing happens without the right action. When it comes to growing yourself, you should focus on what is in front of you. You should not work to be better than others, but to be better than yourself. Growth takes time. You are going to be patience with yourself. Nothing happens overnight. Your dreams are not going to happen overnight. Don’t worry about what others are doing. Just worry about what you are doing. If you have the courage to focus on your work, on your life, you will be better than yourself.

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Don’t bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”– William Faulkner
