19 Sep 20 Things Nobody Tells You About Growing Up – LSL MANAGEMENT TIP #49
It’s a journey of twists and turns, peaks and valleys, mountains to climb and oceans to explore. Good times and bad times. Happy times and sad times. But always, life is a movement forward. No matter where you are on the journey, in some way, you are continuing on–and that’s what makes it so magnificent.
What nobody ever tells you, though, when you are a wide-eyed child, are all the little things that come along with “growing up.” The things pull you down from your dreaming cloud and force you to plant your feet on the ground.
- Most people are scared of imagination.
- Your dream doesn’t really matter to anyone else.
- Friends are relative to where you are in your life.
- Your potential increases with age.
- Spontaneity is the sister of creativity.
- You forget the value of “touch” later on.
- Most people don’t do what they love.
- Many stop reading after college.
- People talk more than they listen.
- Creativity takes practice.
- “Success” is a relative term.
- You can’t change your parents.
- The only person you have to face in the morning is yourself.
- Nothing feels as good as something you do from the heart.
- Your potential is directly correlated to how well you know yourself.
- Everyone who doubts you will always come back around.
- You are a reflection of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
- Beliefs are relative to what you pursue.
- Anything can be a vice.
- Your purpose is to be YOU.
What is the meaning of life? To be you, all of you, always, in everything you do–whatever that means to you. You are your own creator. You are your own evolving masterpiece. Growing up is the realization that you are both the sculpture and the sculptor, the painter and the portrait.
Paint yourself however you wish.
