We believe that if we’re still for a moment things will pass us by… and in some circumstances they may if you don’t take action. However, you must also take time to grow yourself through education and implementation.
Most people forget that in the cocoon the caterpillar is growing and changing, like we must do.
So, if we are still in the cocoon, or development phase, are we consistent in applying techniques? Are we teaching what we’ve learned? Are we reading to fill our brains with positive thoughts? Do we have positive influences? Are we growing, or are we stagnating?
From the cocoon to the next level takes work.
This development stage cannot be temporary, it has to be a constant in your life when you’re learning to fly. You must always be growing and changing for the better. Yes, change is uncomfortable, but it is necessary if you want to move forward and succeed.
According to Sham Helmstetter, Ph.D. you have to understand the physiological process of the brain by considering how the brain responds to data, and then directs and controls us. Without this understanding, Dr. Helmstetter feels that it would be difficult to build a good success plan for the long-term.
Not only do we have to understand how the brain works, we must begin re-programming those things we’ve learned that are holding us back by replacing them with things that will help us grow.
My friend gave me this quote last night…
“Saturate yourself with positivity, and grow what you know.”
The task to remain positive may include getting rid of negative influences. Focus on those things, and people, who inspire you.
The little caterpillar sitting on the lampshade in the photo above was a gift from my daughter. I look at it everyday in my office, and know that in my cocoon, I have someone inspiring me to grow.
Tell me, who and what inspires you in your cocoon?
