4 Ways To Grow Yourself

If you are not happy with what you are doing, with where you are, do not resist it. It is time to move on to the next level. And to move on to the next level, you must not resist change.

“You have to be completely discouraged before you can progress.”– Carolyn Schlam

You can move on, you can grow yourself only if you have the courage to do the following:

Give something up

Carolyn Schlam says, “If we want to grow, we must give something up.” Whatever it is that is holding you back from achieving your greatness in life, let it go. Give it up.

Do not put yourself down

“When we put ourselves down, we meditate on what is lacking instead of being grateful for what we have; we compare ourselves to others and out come out less than; we beat upon ourselves and work ourselves into a state of self-condemnation that blocks answers to our prayer.”- Dr Pat Francis

You do not have any reason to put yourself down. Life is too short to do that. To find happines in your life, do not focus on what is not there. Do not compare yourself to other people. They have their own problems. You have yours. Let them face their problems. While you mind your own business. Do not worry about other people. Focus on where you are, what you are doing, and where you are going. That is good enough.

Keep learning”

If you want to expand your world, do not stop learning. According to Harry Beckwith and Christine K. Clifford, “Education does more than prepare us for career and expand our minds. It enlarges our world- the number of people with whom we can connect. Because education covers so much ground, it helps us find more of the ground that is common to others whom we meet.”

Slow Down

According to Mark Nepo, “When impatient, the explorer in us demands that the problem solver in us work faster. But the native in us works more closely with what is. The native in us is in no hurry to get anywhere, wanting only to inhabit wherever we are to the fullest.” Listen to your inner self. It takes time to get real things done. Take your time to do the things that are important to you. Do not measure yourself against time. If you do, you will fail. Why is that? Because time will always win.

6 Best Sister Stanislaus Kennedy Thoughts On How To Take Care Of Your Soul

With yourself, with your soul, you cannot lose any fight, no matter where you are. To be comfortable with yourself, you must listen to your soul.

To do that, here are 6 thoughts that will help you “garden the soul.”

You can’t control everything. “There is little in our lives that we have full control over, even if we try. But we can control the way we think and our attitudes, and these can change everything.”– Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

Life is bigger than you. For that reason, if you want happiness, you must focus on what you can control.

Take care of your self-esteem “With self-esteem, we cannot lose, no matter what we lose. When we have a sense of ourselves, no one can best you. Conversely, when we take away people’s self-esteem then we have taken their all.” – Sister Stanilaus Kennedy

Without your self-esteem, you are nothing. It is all you have. Do let anyone put you down. Do whatever you can to take care of your self-esteem. One way is to do what gives you courage, what makes you happy.

Give yourself permission to do more We must give ourselves permission to go overboard sometimes. If we attack ourselves for going off course, we cannot learn from our mistakes.”– Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

If you want to learn from your mistake, you must give yourself permission to fail. Because if you are not falling, if you are not failing, you are not doing enough. You are playing it too safe. Do not play to lose, play to make more mistakes.

Do not resist change. …We cannot settle into complacency but must be always ready to grow. But we do not always allow ourselves to grow. We resist change, and that means we resist grwoing into our true selves.” – Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

The number one enemy of growth is complacency. It is comfortable, but it is not profitable. Our souls like change. They like new things. So if you want to stimulate your soul, do not resist change. Because we grow when we change. Conversely, we die when we do not change. So to be alive, you must embrace change.

It takes time to do great things. Anything that is forced or rushed is not whole.” – Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

Some people are not happy because they cannot control their thoughts. They take more than they can chew. They are not consistent. Look, whatever you want to do in your life, if you want it to grow, you have got to be patient with yourself. It takes patience to do great things.

Accept yourself. “Acceptance of ourselves is the beginning of personal growth and transformation.” – Sister Stanislaus Kennedy

Self-acceptance is the beginning of your life, of your growth, of your hqppiness. Look, do not worry about how you look. Just celebrate the fact that you are still alive. That is good enough for you. That is good enough to make you whole. We all have something we don’t like about ourselves. If you think you are alone in the universe of imperfection, you are wrong! Love yourself, no matter what.
