Why Self-Help NEEDS Patience!

🗣️ “I’m ready to become my best self! Where’s the secret sauce?” 🗣️

Well let’s hold on a second here! 🛑 I appreciate the enthusiasm, but I think this requires some clarification! 😅

Do you really want to become your best self? I also want to become my best self, so we’re in this together! 🤝

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

You’re not going to be told it in our modern society. We live in a day and age which thrives on instant gratification. 💨

📍 Want an item from Amazon? Get it delivered to your door next day!

📍 Want to watch a movie? Click and stream it online!

📍 Want an answer to a random 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! 👏

But what I want to emphasize is with personal growth, it’s VERY different! You could even say personal growth is like entering a different culture! 😲

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 let me assure there’s not going to be any overnight shipping for this! 😅

🌟 Becoming your best self will not offer the same conveniences our modern society does. 🌟

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

It’s easy for us to start working on ourselves, not see the results we want, and we quickly give up. Again, our society reinforces instant gratification. 👍

But think of something in your life you 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. 🗣️

Becoming your best self is not for me. It’s for you. It’s for your Future Self. It’s because you have only one life to live. ⌛
