"Do not fear going slowly; only fear standing still.'' Chinese Proverb
I am an avid follower of the kaizen philosophy of making small incremental changes that add up over time. These changes are not going to take huge amounts work, but once you get the momentum going, the returns will be great. It is all about getting the momentum going for you. Even though it might seem like a little work in the beginning, you have to see this process as an investment in yourself and understand that the longer you stick with it, the easier it is going to get.
I am going to suggest that you implement one new activity into your life and let it build momentum. This activity will allow you to start trusting your inner knowing and move forward in life with additional courage and passion. We will get to this particular activity later in this chapter. First you need to fully understand why you need to trust your inner knowing. There is no one else here on planet earth that has had the same experiences, thoughts, emotions, struggles and success that you have had up until this point. As a meaning maker, the meanings you create are completely unique and this gives you a completely unique perspective of life. This is why the path of self-exploration is ultimately one that you have to take alone. Sure, you can have friends who support you or join a spiritual community. However, you are the only person who knows exactly what you need and when you need it.

“We all are learning, modifying, or destroying ideas all the time. Rapid destruction of your ideas when the time is right is one of the most valuable qualities you can acquire. You must force yourself to consider arguments on the other side.
— Charles T. Munger”
