Progress doesn’t happen overnight and you need to understand that there are many components to achieving your goals. Have a backup plan. There may be incomplete creative tasks waiting to be finished. Now is the time as you are feeling more expressive.
Nearly all mankind is more or less unhappy because nearly all do not know the true Self.
Real happiness abides in Self-knowledge alone. All else is fleeting.
To know one's Self is to be blissful always. – Sri RamanaMaharshi
