You know what I’m talking about, the “new car feeling” lasts for a while but then, it becomes just another car.
The new house is awesome, but sooner or later the feeling fades, the new job or business is the same. Some even fall into this trap with their relationships, trading up every 7 to 10 years.
Why doesn’t the feeling last? Because the Outside can’t change what’s Inside you.
NFL Hall of Famer Dion Sanders shared with me that one of the lowest points in his life, was winning his first Super Bowl. His whole career he was told that winning the Super was the ultimate. Shortly after the win he realized, no matter where you go and what you do, there you are.
Nothing on the outside can change you on the inside, only you can change you, through personal growth and learning to love yourself. The outside can only mask things and provide temporary highs.
The key to permanent everlasting joy is learning to love yourself, and truly understanding that the creator of the universe made you for a purpose and He loves you no matter what.
