In this face paced world, we need to be running just to keep up. Everyone and everything is vying for our attention, so it is essential to MAKE time for yourself, and use it wisely.
Understanding yourself and continually growing is what life is all about. We are NEVER finished growing up! It requires asking yourself two questions;
1. Who are you growing into?
2. and How you plan to get there?
It may involve acquiring new habits, hobbies, skills but most likely trying new strategies... because the ones you are currently using aren't serving you well! No matter how good a person is, they can always do better. The key is to compare yourself to who you were yesterday, and NOT to who someone else is today.
I really only started my personal growth a few years ago. It started with a traumatic event being the catalyst, followed by:
self analysis, discovery and understanding
studying with personal growth coaches
connecting with others on the journey forward
planning/creating a life I wanted
conceptualizing who it is I'm trying to be
committing to it
...with more to come
Nothing on this earth is standing still.
It's either growing or it's dying.
No matter if it's a tree or a human being.
