“Change is inevitable but personal growth is a choice”. - Bob Proctor
We all fear change - our brains are hardwired to keep us safe and find peace in what we know - however, we also know that nothing remains constant in life, not even ourselves.
Change is one of the few certain things that characterize our existence.
Over time we grow, our body changes, we live different experiences, we change the way we spend our days and see things.
In short, we change without even realizing it.
It’s that simple, each of us continues to change whether we like it or not.
But, if in some cases change is passively experienced, in others, it is actively sought after instead.
This is what personal growth is all about - taking charge of one’s life.
PERSONAL GROWTH IS A CHOICE
Personal growth means committing to improving oneself and one's life as a result.
Devoting oneself to one's personal growth is living life by choice and not by chance.
Working on our personal growth allows us to take the reins of our life and design the life we want.
By embracing this path we become the major factor in our own success - whatever success means to you.
We are the ones who create the change. Life, then, is no longer about reaction to circumstances but about creation.
Don’t try to get external things to change, you would only waste time.
Start working on the inside instead! Work on your philosophy, attitude, personality, mindset, body, and all your abilities.
If you start proactively making internal changes, everything will change for you.
Five, ten years from now you’ll be a completely different person with a completely different life.
“Success is something you attract by the person you become”. - Jim Rohn
Active growth adds meaning to your life.
What you become is much more valuable than what you get.
So, why would you want to stop growing and becoming better?
Those who work on their personal growth before long discover that their growth is a journey to enjoy rather than a destination to crave for.
You cannot stop it, change happens all the time and it’s inevitable!
Without change, life would become stagnant and boring.
Needless to say, the changes you trigger by working on personal growth bring about much better results than the ones you passively experience.
Don’t go through the day with your fingers crossed as most people do.
Everybody hopes things will get better, but your future doesn’t get better by hope, it gets better when you get better.
What have you always wanted to become and achieve?
What would your life be like if you became a better version of yourself?
How much money would you make? What would your body shape be like? Where would you live? What would you do? How many hours a day would you work and how many would you devote to yourself and the people who are important to you?
Have you taken the time to think this through?
If you have but haven’t taken action yet, what holds you back?
Remember, personal growth is a choice. Make yours and start taking action!
The more you grow, the greater your life experience will be.
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty". - Maya Angelou
