As a person who likes to keep to herself a lot, and doesn’t like asking for help, I feel this quote is geared toward people like me, who are used to living in small worlds – alone. I’ve become very independent in my life and haven’t learned how to rely on other people, primarily because I don’t trust them with living up to my standards. And this has stopped me from fully enjoying working with people, learning how to behave in intimate social events and realizing that my future is not just in my hands.
Every person you encounter in life has the potential to shake your core, and the beliefs and values that you hold. It’s just a matter of you allowing them to. Sift the bad seeds out, and only allow good ones in. The mind is a powerhouse of wonder, thought and logic and when two connect it can be a dynamic force.
It’s important to keep your focus on matters that are five steps ahead, but why not shake it up a little bit and take a look at what’s 10 steps ahead for you? And if you see so little in your future, stir up your life! So cliché, but break the mold and open your eyes. There’s a whole world out there and it ends with you.
