I love reading self-help books, motivational, inspirational books, and biographies. I love learning from other people's experiences. In addition to reading books, I also like reading blogs, listening to podcasts, and watching Youtube videos in the topics of books I like and people I want to learn from.
Sometimes a voice in my head will say something like "if only you had applied all that you've learned from all those books you read and podcasts you are listened to, you should be "perfect" by now. You should be successful by now. But you are not."
That voice in my head was not a good voice. And here is my reply: Had I not been reading those books, I probably would be a mess by now. Sure I am not a millionaire now, and I am not "perfect", but I am happy where I am and I will continue to strive to be better each and every day. Being happy and content with what I have and who I am, and yet continuing to improve myself is a form of success. I am successful in my own way.
My "time" for morning journaling" is over, so I'd stop here for now. Will continue with more thoughts and musing tomorrow. A hui hou.
