I used to be a Self-Help Junkie or Personal Development Junkie.
I noticed a pattern with myself though. I never finished what I started.
I tried too many things all at the same time.
I had fingers in too many pots.
There was such a fear of missing out on information, knowledge and wisdom, I buzzed like a bee from flower to flower getting nectar from each flower.
But I never digested the nectar, it stayed in the stomach never became honey.
The sticky mess that honey is….
Contentment, bliss and joy is like honey, sweet and sticky.
With Self-help you think if you do this or that or read this or read that or follow that person you will taste the honey.
The honey my love is inside of you.
You gotta stick with the mess inside of you.
Process it inside of you.
The nectar isn’t in the books or the strategies or tips.
They are just tools.
The secret is within the process.
You got to trust the process.
You got to be patient with the process.
As a recovering Self-help Junkie I know that is the hardest part.
I know am committed to finishing what I started.
