Note on the ongoing series: I have always believed that quotes encapsulate concepts that are a catalyst for great insights and introspection. As such I will be sharing some of my favorite quotes on various topics along with some brief commentary. For this episode, we will focus on DEVELOPING ONESELF.
Self-improvement is all about introspection and making an effort to push your own comfort zones. Exploring new terrain will push your capabilities in unexpected ways.
It is all too easy to remain stagnant and never push yourself when it is uncomfortable to do so. However, the investment in developing oneself is likely the one competitors won’t make. The greater your self-awareness, the more equipped you are to make an impact.
Here are a few quotes to consider on the topic:
“You’ve gotta leave home to become who you are.” -Amichai Lau Lavie, Creator of StorahTelling, NYC
“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” - Carl Jung
“Sometimes you only uncover your values when someone steps on them.” -David Allen
