You’re Never Going To Grow If You Keep Living Like This

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become if you spend too much time inside your comfort zone. You need to take risks. You need to put yourself into uncomfortable situations. You need to take advantage of the opportunities given to you instead of allowing them to pass you by.

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become if you stay locked in the same routine. Nothing is going to change if you keep making the same decisions over and over again, decisions that are keeping you stuck on a path you aren’t excited about walking. You might feel lost and helpless right now, but you’re in charge of where you’re heading. If you’re unhappy right now, you can’t keep living like this. You need to gather your strength and figure out a new plan for yourself. You need to be the one to take action.

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become if you let yourself slack. You’re allowed to have lazy days. You’re allowed to take breaks so you don’t end up self-destructing or burning yourself out. But you shouldn’t give yourself permission to procrastinate. You shouldn’t make a habit out of fooling around during the hours when you’re supposed to be working. You shouldn’t push aside your passions in order to focus on other things, easier things. If you want to reach success, then you have to work for it. You’re not going to get anything handed to you.

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become if you allow yourself to live in the past. You’re allowed to use your mistakes as a soundboard, as a reminder not to make the same decisions a second time around. But you shouldn’t dwell on what happened to you years ago. You shouldn’t stay stuck on a past that doesn’t exist anymore. You need to keep your focus on your future. You need to prepare for what lies ahead of you. You can’t control what happened yesterday, but you have some say over what happens to you tomorrow. You have to remember that.

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become if you maintain an unhealthy relationship with yourself. You shouldn’t talk down to yourself. You shouldn’t treat your body like crap. You shouldn’t act like it doesn’t make a difference what happens to you because you’re always going to be a failure. You should start treating yourself with more respect. You should nurture your mind and your body.

You’re never going to grow into the person you were destined to become unless you believe in yourself, unless you push away the doubts you have about whether you’ll be able to make it. You have to have faith in yourself. All of the encouragement in the world isn’t going to matter unless you believe what everyone is telling you, unless you believe you can handle this. TC mark
