Save what inspires you
Human beings are always moving towards growth, either positive or negative (backward growth).
If we do not provide constant nourishment to our body and mind, we will become stagnant, stale and in danger of withering away.
“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”
Our identity is changing according to our behaviour and life experiences. We are the designers of our personality and can mould it according to our desires.
Just as a garden can be either made more beautiful or ugly, we can make our identity more polished or refined, and can also make it entangled and confused.
We don’t know how powerful or capable we are, as most of our abilities remain dormant.
We don’t push ourselves to attain the seemingly impossible due to the internal limitations and mindsets about what we can and cannot do. Our identity and personality can change based on a demanding situation, internal or external.
Contrary to popular belief, inspiration does not necessarily lead to creativity.
Creating things (action) leads to inspiration, which then generates a greater desire to create more. Acting out one’s creativity is how we become really creative.

If you intentionally live each day, perfecting and maximising your vision of the future, instead of killing time or just living a bread and butter, day-to-day existence, you steer your life towards the direction you want.
We need to act like the person we wish to become, as we are what we do all day.

Most people tend to visualize themselves as being the same after a decade, mistakenly assuming that the current version of us is our best and last one. We are a work-in-progress with our skills, likes, dislikes change over time, making us completely different from what we think we would be.
There are three main steps that can help us blossom into someone desirable: Distinguishing our various selves, imagining our desired future self, and changing our identity narrative.
