If You're Going To Grow, Grow For Yourself

By Evan Sanders

When we focus on being the best person we can be, we let go of the pressure and expectation of what others think we should be.

In our modern world, we have a inclination to believe that we always have to be something more.

Our world has us believing that we have to live up to standards that actually can't be lived up to. The perfect body, relationship, look, hair, lifestyle and everything else you could possibly imagine. These things that we are fed are constantly telling us that we aren't good enough and that we have to purchase this or that to become something better. The truth is, you have these incredible gifts that if you unlocked them you could amaze the world. But the first thing you have to do is take off the mask you've been wearing your entire life.

It's a lot easier and far more fun in the end to be exactly who you are without any apologies.

This isn't to say that you shouldn't aim to healthily improve your life. But if you are going to go down the trail of personal development and deepening, you've got to truly focus on doing it for yourself. In truth, that's the only way that lasting and sustainable change occurs.

When you begin developing for people or because someone just told you to do it, you don't actually end up believing in what you're doing. Unfortunately, development becomes something that you cross off a list instead of a lifetime journey. Even worse, you may end up resenting the person you are doing it for.

Love and appreciate the things, people, and life that you have right now. Accept where you are at and then if you want to build something different for yourself, dive into it fully. Dive into it because you believe in it. Dive into it because it's something that you want to do and it's something that will make you incredibly proud. That's a life that you can be happy about.

In the end, if we stay true to our own paths and believe in ourselves, we are truly capable of anything.
