Do you ever notice that you will work hard at something for someone else? Why is it that you can be dedicated to do something you are good at when you are working for someone else?
You will work day in and day out, and study to perfect your craft, for whatever it may be, to climb the ladder to achieve a status for some kind of outside validation. But challenge yourself to to that very thing with the same level of dedication and you run out of steam.
You become too tired -One reason may be that you are putting that energy toward things outside yourself.
Take me for example, I write for a living and I’m supposed to be writing for pleasure on a daily basis… but.. I won’t finish it here because it will just be an excuse that I shouldn’t give legs to move.
So what are you doing?
Are you pouring all your energy into pursuits that benefit others?
Are you pouring into yourself by giving yourself time to replenish?
Seek to do things that give you joy and serve as a vehicle where you can get lost. This will leave you feeling energized and then the fruits of your labor will sprout, grow, and expand.
You will reap what you sow. Don’t sow all your seeds into something that doesn’t feed your joy.
Your experience will be nurtured by the thoughts and actions you are fed.
Remember to be kind to yourself.
