Self growth is something that has to happen from within not from the exterior of your life. It cannot be based on money or possessions it has to begin from a desire to know your true self and the journey it will take you on once you begin.
Some people think it takes being in a good financial position to take the step to self growth, but that is just not the case. It is possible that this idea arose because people who have more financial security have more free time to spend on hobbies and activities. It’s important to recognize that self growth isn’t something to fill the extra time you have, but rather a new way to see yourself and grow into the true you.
It’s true, when you have disposable income you can afford to buy books and other items to aid in your journey. Here at Mama Tracy’s we understand that each person who walks through our door is looking for a connection with their spiritual truths and we work with you to guide you on your journey. If you care about learning how to become more your true self and the education, improvement, and spiritual growth needed to accomplish this then you will find the means and the time for them.
Some people have that moment in their lives that makes them take a look at who they are and why they are. Others have had this need gnawing in their gut for a time and have finally decided that they are just as important as everything around them and it’s been silly to wait to begin their own journey. In most cases, it makes no sense to wait for the right conditions. If you are earnest enough, you can grow yourself, even in difficult or hostile conditions.
Stop letting outside influences direct your life. Remember, that what goes inside your mind can eventually becomes your reality if you are not self aware enough to challenge the negative influences around you. If you have begun catching yourself complaining that you have no money and no time for self improvement and spiritual growth, you are letting those outside factors take hold. You have to stop letting outside influences drive your life. Now you have to take a new direction and allow your true self to shape your life.
Prayer doesn’t cost a thing. And many people need to learn that prayer is a form of meditation. What it costs you is time, so find the time to start with prayer. Let your inner desires and truths be spoken during prayer time, and take a few minutes after you have finished to rest and breathe in the things you have spoken so they start to have more strength and importance in your daily life.
Self improvement and spiritual growth are an inner process. This is all you, and it’s about you reaching inward to claim your true self. Financial concerns do not have to stand in your way and many find that once they are achieving true self growth they seem to improve their economic condition or gain ways to make it easier to deal with.
A change of attitude will make you stronger, happier, and more peaceful, and you will be able to look at your life with a broader vision. When desire and motivation are strong, you can always find the time for self improvement, meditation and spiritual growth.
Remember, external changes are guided by inner changes. Start the change inside of you and see what a new life will be like in the world around you. Once you begin to change your inner self, reset your mindset on life, then external conditions will change as well.
Change isn’t bad; it shows there has been growth, learning, and connections to new experiences that have lead to a new direction in your life. There is no reason to wait for the perfect conditions to begin this, so start now and get to know yourself better. Only good things will grow from that knowledge. Come join us at Mama Tracy’s to learn new ways to grow your true self and to be surrounded by others who are there to support you on your journey.
