We must exercise that control for our benefit.⁠

What new perspectives are you taking on?⁠
What new ways of being are you taking on?⁠

#NotJusSayin


“The Learners shall inherit the Earth while the learned will be beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.”

Change is the only thing that is constant.⁠

The world is always evolving, we are always evolving, and as evolution happens, the ways of doing and living also evolve.⁠

This is why we must commit ourselves to learn. ⁠
Seek to learn, grow and expand ourselves, for if we don’t, we “will be beautifully equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” ⁠

Meaning, we will be living in a new, evolved world, with outdated concepts.⁠

#NotJusSayin


“To become someone you have never been before, you must do something you have never done before.”

If the current way is not working, try a new way!⁠
