I used to be in the arena of social commentators demonstrating the prowess of my debating ability on national issues. Unknown to me this attitude rather crippled my thinking. It made me believe that the problems that i was facing was from my environment. I focused my energies on the issues happening around me. I thought little on myself and what I could do. It made me loose a lot of positive energy and attitude when addressing problems. I was heavily stressed and depressed doing nothing. I cared for too many things which had little to no bearing on my life.
So i decided to think more about myself; my life, my ambitions, my relationships my influence and my potential. Then things became clearer to me. Happiness growth and success is from within. Your environment has little bearing on your accomplishments rather it is your self awareness, self commitment and self perseverance that hold the majority stake. Now i feel more fulfilled, energized and poised to carry out my ideas, desires and ambitions.
As the famous author Mark Caine rightly puts it, “the first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself”. Learn to generate your energy, passion and outlook from within.
GROW FROM WITHIN.
