…that the greatest waste in the world is the difference between what we are and what we could become. – Ben Herbster
what we are
When assessing self let’s consider two dimensions:
- What should we improve?
- What should we appreciate about self?
A balance between the two is necessary. Some of us are perfectionists and demand a lot from self. This attitude can hurt more than it helps. On the other hand if we think too much of self that may translate into arrogance and righteousness.
What’s our potential? This question too must be asked across more than one dimension:
- Physical: How can we have greater health and material success?
- Mental: How can we have great relationships? How can we be more mentally acute?
- Spiritual: What larger goals are we pursuing? Where are we truly headed?
