“If you could envision the type of person God intended you to be, you would rise up and never be the same again.” Sean Covey
We Are Nature
Life and nature are intricate. Study the delicate nature of a single leaf to observe how much work and design went into creating it. Yet, everything in nature, including us has to come to its natural conclusion. A leaf will depart from the tree it grew, just as we depart from the earth we grew.
Our time here is limited, but our growth potential is not - Lisa Precious
Fear Of Our Own Potential
Did you know that most individuals are afraid to look in the light of who they are, and do you know why? Embracing our highest potential is scary. People will use several excuses to avoid uncomfortable change to advance themselves. It's common to attach to ailments like pieces of old clothing to avoid stepping into becoming a fully functioning human being.
The heart of human excellence often begins to beat when you discover a pursuit that absorbs you, frees you, challenges you, or gives you a sense of meaning, joy, or passion. – Terry Orlick
It means that when we reach one of the inevitable junctions of life, we have to decide to either stay comfortable and safe where we are or take the path of uncertainty into the unknown. We naturally dislike uncertainty, so humans usually opt for the comfortable, safe option.
Mistakes Are Permitted
We don't like messing up, and the reason most people will never realize their growth potential is the fear of getting it wrong. Mistakes however, force us to learn to shift, manoeuvre, and steer in new directions, thus acquiring even more life skills.
To begin to think with purpose, is to enter the ranks of those strong ones who only recognize failure as one of the pathways to attainment. – James Allen
Show Up As You
Today, it's rare to find fully transparent people, yet allowing others to see our vulnerability and uncertainty is the very thing that endears a person toward us. Permitting others to see the times we messed up, still means our life turned out how it was supposed to. By learning a valuable lesson, we grew.
Imagine each human being on the planet as a leaf on a tree, unique and individual, growing in different times, countries, and seasons. Ensure you never get swept along with all the others, or allow the adversities to crumple you into broken pieces for others to trample over you.
You are unique and powerful, and that's why you are here- Lisa Precious
