It’s a normal and healthy part of growth to stop being impressed by things we once found impressive. I look back on pictures of me riding horses years ago and think now they’re too tight, too off balance and not relaxed enough. My idols then just don’t do it for me now anymore.
If we’re willing to let go of those ideals we strived so hard for, the ones we know just don’t fit with our new vision, we can make real progress.
If we hold tight to it, and don’t let ourselves see with new eyes what really is happening, we stay stuck.
It’s normal and healthy to find new goals, new idols, and to not like the way our old idols work.
