Growth is a process, not a destination, but it does lead you to a destination. Growth is like climbing up the ladder, one step at a time towards success.
Although you may never see the end of the road immediately, you can rest assured that you’re closer to where you’re going than where you’re coming from… If you keep moving!
We all desire to grow, and this natural instinct makes us constantly feel like pushing the boundaries.
Just be careful not to be too hard on yourself and don’t allow thoughts of the past or limitations to hold you back either.
You may have heard the saying that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
It’s true in the real sense because growth is desirable, but the process is not always a bed of roses.
Sometimes you could wake up doubting your abilities or suffering from mental pains. But you have to keep telling yourself that they are stepping stones for your next phase of growth.
See, there’s No Victory Without A Fight!
You may find yourself fighting to overcome a bad habit, striving to learn a new skill, dealing with an addiction, and all sorts of experiences.
But, without the challenge’s life throws at us, how else do we want to improve our mental capacity and become better versions of ourselves?
The best part is that once you can conquer the level where you are, you immediately qualify for the next phase of growth, and you will have the courage to help others up as well.
If you’ve ever admired a successful professional, behind their expertise were moments of self-doubt, mistakes, years of sweat and training… and maybe some tears too.
Boom! Once they grew past that stage, they became wiser, more knowledgeable, and most have gone ahead to leave their footprints in the sand of time.
The Great Martin Luther King said:
“if you can’t fly, then run; If you can’t run, then walk; If you can’t walk, then crawl; But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward!”
We expect children to grow into adults, flowers to blossom, students in school to graduate eventually, we expect to advance in our careers. Growth is part of our existence.
So, let nothing hold you back, not even the failures or mistakes of the past.
Don’t just grow physically; grow mentally as well, and watch your life progress in an upward trajectory!
