ITG - Life is a journey where you create yourself.
By Matt Blake
Today we are talking about Creating Yourself!! QUOTE: "Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw You don’t set out on a cross country drive to reach the end, just like you don’t watch a movie just to get to the credits! It’s the journey along the way. The same is true with your life. A journey of self-discovery is a lifelong adventure of experiences that shape you into who you are. And if you spend too much of your life trying to “find” yourself… you are going to miss the amazing experiences that are shaping you into the person you are. You are not an amazing business owner, salesperson, or entrepreneur because you arrived at a job. You are amazing at what you do because of all the work and experiences that have taken you there… because of the lessons learned from failure and defeat. Every battle scar or every time you missed the mark is another set of lessons that made you smarter and better at what you do AND… more importantly, who you are. There is an old saying “Fool me once, shame on you… fool me twice, shame on me”. It’s so well known because it’s so true. We learn and grow from every trial and storm we face. We come out wiser on the other side and all that wisdom shapes us into who we are. The point is to live your life from a position that you are always becoming more… never stop learning or growing.. never be afraid to experience something new. When it’s true in life, it’s generally also true in business… And your business struggles and victories each change the landscape of your business. If you think your business is done changing, and you stop adapting then you are done. Growing a business is about constant innovation and change… updating, revamping, and adapting to meet the needs of your clients and staying on the cutting edge of your industry. In business you are always building if you want to be successful If you want to enjoy your life you have to stop sprinting to the finish line and realize that you aren’t going to discover who you are at the end… you are creating yourself all along the way! That cross-country drive is meant to be enjoyed… Stop and smell the roses, people… enjoy the sights and sounds of your life! Use the amazing experiences to add to yourself and create someone awesome!
