We see the world not as it is, but as we are.
Our own collection of experiences, thoughts and emotions create the glasses with which we see the world. Our own logic is molded by the myriad of experiences we had, the sensorial experiences we felt and the thoughts we entertain in our minds.
This means, that the things we regularly do, all the habits that we run, the actions that we take, are ultimately the things that create our bubble of understanding of the world.
We shape our own view of the world by doing.
We shape our own self by doing.
Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up in our own stories and keep doing what we always did. We tell ourselves that doing something differently would mean "failing to be me". We put lots of reasons, thoughts, ideas, and crazy complicated logic behind it. When reality is much simpler:
We do then we become.
Nobody has ever become something different by pure thought, or by magical transformation of the self. Planning is not doing, thinking is not doing, feeling is not doing.
Becoming means" beginning to be" there's an action necessary, a beginning, a vulnerable effort.
Doing shapes our self.
Doing shapes our understanding of the world.
Doing transforms us into what we want to be.
