You have to grow from the inside out

You have to grow from inside out – You are your best teacher

Hi Friends

Today I will start with a quote:

“You have to grow from the inside out.

None can teach you, none can make you spiritual.

There is no other teacher but your own soul.”

― Swami Vivekananda

A very powerful quote from Swami Vivekananda.

What makes it so important for you as a person. Reflect back and you will understand in a better way. Each one of us have their own successes, successes which we are proud off.

What made you successful?

Most of the times we value success when you get challenged at doing something. Specially from the people who do not love us and critique you. Mostly acquaintances, class mates, relatives who are not close to you and maybe envying you, or trying to put you down. Finally, you emerge a winner it was a difficult task which you overcame and showed them that you are capable of doing it.

Now let us relate with what Swami Vivekananda said. While it is from a spiritual sense look at from a smaller materialistic level.

“You have to grow from the inside out.

None can teach you, none can make you Successful.

There is no other teacher but you yourself.”

Does it holds as good as earlier?

Does it describe the success stories you cherish?

Does it describe some what your journey and self motivation?

While I am found of many personalities like Einstein, Thomas, Nike etc. The similarity we see in their success stories are similar to our small success stories. But, their faith in themselves, their ability to coach themselves, their ability to drive themselves, their ability to face adversities is what made them different. They definitely had a different idea but were able to accomplish due to their self drive.

So what do you need to do:

  • Take up challenge – Start with small steps, each step will motivate you more

  • Take criticism in a positive way – Don’t carry negative energy of your bosses, critiques or any one. If they say you are worthless then they have missed your potential not you. Einstein was told you are worthless

  • Identify a person who is full of energy and high on motivation – They will help you succeed and even push you to achieve success

  • Self learning – A very important and critical tool to success – Find people who overcame similar problems and learn from them

  • Meet successful but humble people – They are good motivators

  • Remember that you are your best teacher and believe that you will succeed but critical it is the journey that is important not the result. So enjoy as much

Wish you all success in your life!!!
