If you don’t make out time to explore yourself, you may never discover what you are capable of doing. This is not a motivational address, it is a fact of life. People are living unhappy lives, some are dying so because they cannot self-realize.

The greatest regret in life will not come from disappointments from people you love and trust, it will come from waking up one day and realizing how you let go to waste the treasures that are hidden within you.

You have the time to explore Self now and realize your potential, but so many concerns and distractions of life stand in your way. You are so into the business of dealing with these concerns and distractions that beginning and continuing on the journey of self-discovery looks like distraction itself.

You can become too comfortable in your old self, becoming a better version of yourself feels like the impossible task of turning stone into gold.

People think they have been self-defined and that all they know of themselves is all there is to know. This is the kind of thinking that keeps people stuck in a rut.

Your life is designed to be a journey of continuous unfoldment. Every time you uncover a layer of your potential, something changes in you. Positively.

You already know what you are capable of doing. You have a hint of your inner power. But, these are like the tip of the iceberg, they are like flickers waiting to turn into flames. You have to make out time to fan the flame.

The concern here is that you are not making out time for yourself and you do not realize this, or you do realize it but think there is more time. There is no time.

The unease you sometimes feel is feedback. That restlessness, unhappiness, and anxiety are often messages informing you that you are bigger than where you currently are. That time has run out at the level where you currently are. You need to move up! And the fuel, the propeller, is right inside you.

Take out time to reflect. What are you not doing right? What should you be doing now? What have you left off till tomorrow? Where do you have to be? What do you have to learn? Who do you have to meet? How are you supposed to regulate yourself to reach the next levels of your life?

Make your face turn inwards and be truly honest in this self-analysis. When you truly want to live a life above the ordinary, you will get the signs of where to begin and how to maintain steam. A fight will be waged by the forces of the old self, by habits, and even from people, but you will be empowered.

Don’t look for motivation, they fizzle out too quickly. Build discipline and stay committed and consistent.

Your goal is to make sure that you actualize the deepest levels of your potential to the best of the best of your ability.

Stay strong and focused.
