“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think. The only thing I am for sure is unsure, and this means I’m growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.”
― Jarod Kintz, At even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you’d still waste time by reading it.
Not so much motivational, but words of pure wisdom. Do not let anything, I mean anything prevent your progress. Not your thinking, not someone elses. Discard what is not going to help you reach that next level and embrace all that will. Your mind is full of memories of the past, thoughts of the present, and ideas and plans for the future. Do not get bogged down in your own mind dealing with the past nor concerning yourself too much with the future. Focus on the present moment. Doing all you can with this precise moment in time will set you up for future success and create pleasant memories of what will soon be the past.
Have you ever done something that seemed terribly difficult or miserable at the time, but when it was all said and done you were glad you did it? These are the events that shape past memories, are difficult in the moment, and make you stronger for the future. Do not shy away from difficulties in the present as they often make us stronger in the future.
P.S. You’ve got to love the title Jarod Kintz’s book. I mean come on, not to judge a book by its cover or title, but just seeing what its called makes me want to read it!
