Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. – George Bernard Shaw
Do you ever get the feeling that the spiritual version of yourself is fighting with the material version of yourself?
The bigger the gap between who you are and what you want, the more anxiety, angst, and stress you will feel. How can you close the gap between the two in order to live the highest version of yourself?
The reason this gap occurs is because your values are something you can’t physically touch—you can’t hold them in your hand. You can only experience them through experience, participation, and pursuit. The material goals we chase are much easier not only for us to see and feel, but for others to see and feel as well. This makes them more real to us and much more desirable.
Have you ever really taken time out to not only ask yourself questions like this, but to actually answer them? Questions such as:
What do I want to be?
Who do I want to be?
What is important to me?
What really matters to me in my life?
