When you spent time on yourself, you will be rewarded by finding the right people, results and topics that may enable you to take a step forward at the right time. We get inspiration from the outside world and we need this inspiration to install in our own inner world. As required/demanded, it may be amended with new things.
The more conscious we are about ourselves, the easier it is to give our own life a basic structure. This enables the development of our own personality as well as full use of our own skills and it provides an enjoyable quality of life, satisfaction and maybe luck.
