My personal truth is the
grass is always greener
where you water it.
“By spending time worrying about and
focusing on what everyone else’s
yard (ie. life, career, relationships, etc.)
looks like, you’re wasting time that could otherwise be
spent on watering your own yard (ie. life, career,
relationships, etc.). The result is a whole lot less
confidence in your own work, a whole lot more
overwhelm with the world around you, and a whole lot less
progress in your own yard.” Coming up Roses Blog
"If you think others are
living the dream you saw
every day, then make changes the right
away. Water the grass on your side of
the fence. Greener grass is not just an
optic illusion; it can be yours too.
The grass can be greener forever."
The Mind Fool
“Feeling good doesn't just happen. Living a life
in balance means taking the necessary time
to renew yourself. It's all up to you. You can
renew yourself through relaxation.
Or you can totally burn yourself out by overdoing
everything…Just remember that every day provides a new
opportunity for renewal--a new opportunity to recharge
yourself instead of hitting the wall.
All it takes is the desire, knowledge, and skill.”
Covey's 7 Habits
The grass is always greener when you water it because
it always helps you to focus on yourself and your goals.
When you prioritize yourself, school, and hobbies then
you can strive.. Don't focus on how everyone else is
doing in life, focus on yourself because you are your
top priority. By wasting time worrying about “how
other people's yards look” you aren't focusing on your
yard which can result in less confidence and
productivity. If you are happy with what you are doing,
then no one can tell you you aren't successful.
