Why Self-Help NEEDS Patience!

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธย “I’m ready to become my best self! Where’s the secret sauce?”ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

Well, let’s hold on a second here!ย ๐Ÿ›‘ย I appreciate the enthusiasm, but I think this requires some clarification!ย ๐Ÿ˜…

Do you really want to become your best self? If so, we’re in this together!ย ๐Ÿค

But there’s a common misconception in the self-help community that needs to be addressed. In fact, I think it’s one of the first things people need to know when they decide to work on themselves.ย ๐Ÿ‘

You’re not going to be told this in our modern society. We live in a day and age which thrives on instant gratification.ย ๐Ÿ’จ

๐Ÿ“ย Want an item from Amazon? Get it delivered to your door next day!

๐Ÿ“ย Want to watch a movie? Click and stream it online!

๐Ÿ“ย Want an answer to a question? Ask Siri on your iPhone!

And let me add, these are all great things! The advances in science and technology have brought us so much convenience than we had a decade ago! It should definitely be applauded!ย ๐Ÿ‘

But what I want to emphasize is with personal growth, it’s VERY different! You could even say personal growth is like entering a polar opposite culture!ย ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Why? Because when you want to better yourself, to build new habits, to focus on accomplishing goals, and to do all this the rest of your life…well, there’s no overnight shipping for this!ย ๐Ÿ˜…

๐ŸŒŸย Becoming your best self does not offer the same conveniences our modern society does.ย ๐ŸŒŸ

It’s going to take time. It’s going to require dedication. You’re going to be stepping into uncharted territories. And it will be a journey, not a destination.ย ๐Ÿงญ

It’s easy for us to start working on ourselves, to not see the results we want, and then quickly give up. Again, our society reinforces this!ย ๐Ÿ‘

But think of something in your life you truly want to work on, to become better at, to improve within yourself. And I want you to think about your Future Self, what he/she would say to you if you embarked on this long-term venture.ย ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ

๐ŸŒŸย Netflix is instant. Creating a better life is not.ย ๐ŸŒŸ
