As human beings, we constantly want to evolve and get better at the things we do. We want to climb all ladders of life to get to the top as winners and achievers. But it’s hard. It’s difficult to get better and better – especially on a personal, and perhaps spiritual, level.
Sure, you can work hard at your job and get promotions and new benefits… But how do you become better as a human being? How do you make your mind a more peaceful space?
There’s so much involved in becoming a better person. You have to stand up for yourself and for others, go down roads that are uncomfortable and confrontational. You have to work to earn and give respect. And you have to learn a new way to think in order to find a new way to be.
Here’s the thing: in order for you and your mind to grow, you need to step outside of your mind for a moment, to find some perspective. And to take control. You need to hover above yourself and observe yourself; figure out how you work in certain situations and why. Start looking objectively at your thoughts, and try to see any situation through a different pair of eyes. Put your feet in another pair of shoes.
Then ask yourself this: Who am I? And who do I want to be? Am I moving towards that person, or away? What’s important to me, and am I fighting for it or not?
Challenge your thoughts and your mind, and master a new way of life – a new part of yourself. That’s the only way you will grow on a deeper, non-physical, level. But that kind of growth is so much more worth the hard work because the reward is a life lived true to yourself. And nothing can ever really beat that.
