Many people fail to realize they are in their own way. They know it all and they think they have it all together. If people would put as much or more emphasis on worrying about self, they would be much better off. Too many people put everyone else above self. They focus way too much on being what other people want them to be versus focusing on who they are or what they want to become.
Most people stunt their own growth because they refuse to acknowledge the fact they are responsible for who they choose to become. I don’t care what happened along the way or who did it; how we choose to become depends solely on each of us individually. There are many who will not grasp hold of this truth. They will continue in life the same way and most will die unchanged.
There are unlimited things available to us all if we apply ourselves. A lot of people won’t get off of their dusty stumps to do anything different. They have become fixated and content in their wrong ways of thinking, feeling, and acting until they’ve stunt their own growth. Most do it because they spend most of their lives blaming other people for who they’ve chosen to become.
Most times in life no one is shelling out anything for free. Whatever you want out of life you have to set goals and move towards those goals. Sometimes you will have support, but many times you won’t. If you don’t keep on moving towards your goals. It all depends on you. You shouldn’t live your life for anyone or allow anyone to try an live your life for you.
Stop stunting your own growth and stop allowing others to stunt your growth. Stop waiting for or looking for the approval of others. Many people mess up because they become too sidetracked when they don’t get support or approval of others. News flash; everyone you love won’t love you and everyone who says they support you, don’t and won’t! It’s as simple as that! Keep it moving!
No one can get from point A to B if they’re standing in the same spot. You must move! Life will throw you curved balls, but that’s just it; it’s a part of life! As I recently said “don’t make what is meant to be stepping stones; stumbling blocks.” Stepping stones you step on or jump over and keep going (moving towards your goals), but stumbling blocks can knock you down and stunt your growth, they keep you from progressing. What you choose is up to you!
