On the other side

Never apologize for your growth.⁣
⁣⁣
Do not feel bad for the changes happening around you.⁣

⁣I know you and him could spend 3 hours talking about how Chelsea’s coach is not the best for the club.⁣⁣

He’ll recommend the 7 strategies Man U has to engage for them to beat Liverpool.⁣

You and her will talk for 6 straight hours without getting tired. ⁣

⁣After-all it’s WhatsApp call. You are not spending airtime… Or so you think.⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣I know you are finding it hard to go on YouTube and put Davido’s video on repeat like before. ⁣

⁣In fact, YouTube is not even recommending it anymore… Like before. ⁣

⁣Your friends “can’t relate” with you anymore.⁣
⁣⁣
You seem “proud”, “arrogant”… Is it because you are going for seminars that you are acting as though you are John Maxwell?⁣
⁣⁣
It’s okay. ⁣

⁣Let’s talk about it. ⁣
⁣.⁣⁣
One ultimate source of wisdom I have is the Bible and I’ll share something from it.⁣

At this time, Jesus had just been asked this question:⁣
“Why do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise those of the Pharisees, but Yours eat and drink?”⁣
⁣⁣
The answer to this question is a story for another day, but for now, I’ll talk about the parable he shared right after. ⁣
⁣⁣
In this parable he talked about wine and wineskins.⁣

⁣In his words,⁣⁣
“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the new wine would burst the wineskins, spilling the wine and ruining the skins. New wine must be stored in new wineskins.”⁣

Did you notice that it is the state of the wine that determines the state of the wineskin?⁣

⁣Yes. ⁣
⁣⁣
That is it. ⁣⁣
.⁣
If you are improving yourself, it is okay to change what is around you.⁣

It is okay to be in a new wineskin. ⁣
⁣⁣
Don’t stay in your old wineskin because it is comfortable.⁣
⁣⁣
Comfort is not a valid sign that you’ve gotten to your peak. ⁣
⁣⁣
Never apologize for your growth.⁣⁣
⁣.
⁣To your continued Digital Productivity,⁣
