Yesterday I was clever, today I am wise.

Yesterday I was clever, today I am wise.

Quite often, people want to change the world, in some form or the other. Usually this stems from an understanding that something is missing, or something could be better, on a worldly scale.

But, at the same time, such a feeling also arises because your perspective or your point of view doesn’t match with the world’s and this quest to change the world often originates from you being able to change that.

A beautiful quote from Rumi fits in perfectly here, ‘Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.’
When you shed all the layers, when you start asking questions in depth, when you start facing your own vulnerabilities, you also understand how much you need to change yourself.

Instead of portraying your perspective onto others, you need to upgrade yourself and understand others’ perspectives and point-of-views. When you change yourself, you also elevate yourself to understand what someone else is going through and what do they want, instead of the initial version where you wanted to place your thoughts onto others.

When that happens, is when this quote also makes the perfect sense to you, and you are able to use the learning from this beautiful quote from Rumi.

Are you in your Comfort Zone?

All good things take place outside our comfort zone.

If you want to transform/ improve your life,
If you have a macro goal to achieve and you can’t progress,
If you’re troubled by the daily circumstances of your life,
The answer is, ‘To get yourself out of this comfort zone‘.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’ve created this stable world for yourself, where everything is going the same way, with no growth and no improvement.

To grow, or rather, improve as a better version of yourself, you need to escape that safe place. The grass is greener on the other side!

Every day, every month and every year, the smallest amount of value that you can provide to yourself, helps in upgrading to a better version of yourself.
