You cannot grow yourself if you are not ready and willing to grow. Creativity doesn’t happen overnight. Your personal or professional growth is not going to happen overnight. If you want it, you have got be patient with yourself.
You have got to be patient with yourself. If you don’t give up on yourself, you can grow yourself. It is going to take some time. But to get there, according to Earl Prevette, “Things are not built as a whole, but in parts, and each part must be built. You must build a little each day.” If you need to grow badly, it is not going to happen overnight. You have got to commit yourself to it to make it happen.
You are going to lay your foundation one brick at a time. And before you lay your brick, you must know yourself. You can’t grow yourself if you don’t yourself. According to John Maxwell, “You must know yourself to grow yourself.” Are you ready to grow yourself? If you are ready, just lay one brick at a time.
“I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”- Lewis Caroll
Yesterday was yesterday. Today is today. And tomorrow will be tomorrow. Life is a continuous process. Life is moving forward , not backward. It is changing.
If you want to move your life forward, you must change. You must stop going back to where people don’t respect you. Stop going back to your comfort zone. Stop going back to your old pain. Let it go.
Let the bad things go. Let your bad friends go. You don’t need them in your life anymore. You don’t need people who will put you down. You need people who will lift you up. You need people who will help you find your purpose in life. They are waiting for you.
But if you keep going back to your old life, how can you make your new life? To make your new life, to nurture your present, to nurture your future, you must stop going back to your old zone. You don’t need it. All you need is now. Are you ready to stop going back to your old pain?
