Here’s a quote from Charles Darwin that’s of interest in thinking about working on ourselves (now don’t get all crazy based on what you think of Darwin, truth is truth when you find it):
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.”
I was reading a friend’s blog recently and and he was discussing what was the BIG SECRET to becoming a better person? A better photographer? Better wife/husband, employer, sister/brother, friend, neighbor, parent, whatever…???
The answer is…
Are you ready. Like me, and like most folks, we don’t like the answer.
We need to work at it. The key word being work. Ugh! What an ugly sounding word that is.
But the truth is right there in front of us.
To be truly progressive and always growing, prospering, we need to work on ourselves. We need to be learning, and over time, we grow upwards, climbing, and enjoying the view the higher we get.
