Don’t get me wrong hard work is essential, but why are people taking it to the extreme. I was caught up in this culture not too long ago, and it broke me into pieces because nothing I did felt good enough. I am a person who has always been hard on myself, and If I took the time to understand myself and my needs, I wouldn’t have had to become caught up in this toxic culture. I required self-love and patience. I understand that some people might disagree, but this is what I needed to do for myself to move forward in life! It is important to feel inspired by other people’s stories but not to a point where you idolise anything or anyone believing that success and happiness is only found through imitating theirs lives. To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. I was determined to realise my potential through the grind, but I ended up hurting my self through the process. All I need to do is make use of my brain, which I realise is my greatest asset in life!
When the mind is busy with thousands of voices seeking to be heard, then what we truly want will be that much harder to attain. The grind culture completely disregards the need for self-reflection. We are always thinking, our way to death… literally. When was the last time you sat in silence with your self and your thoughts? Well, let me break the ice, I tried to, but it was too difficult for me as I couldn’t stop all the thoughts from flooding in and out. I am not saying being thoughtless is fantastic. It’s actually the opposite; being thoughtful and conscious about your words, thoughts and actions is a significant part of growing. You can’t deny the fact that the whole purpose of existence is GROWTH. The one unforgivable sin is to stand still, to stagnate – Robert Collier. As long as we make conscious efforts to do something every day to become closer with our true being, we are slowly but steadily manifesting health, success, happiness and prosperity into our lives. Think about it, we came into life form with nothing but our physical bodies, and we will all soon be leaving without anything. In retrospect, everything that happens to us is a blessing in disguise. The misfortunes will shape you into a more wise being, whilst success will treat you with inspiration to achieve more in life. That being said, we have everything we need to become our version of success, taking control of the mind is the only way to harness our super power!
P.S. My journey is never complete, but I am really grateful for all the people that I have in my life who encourage me to chase my dreams and be the best version of myself each and every day. I will like to share my overwhelming gratitude to my sister, and my best friends.
