"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." —George Bernard Shaw
Many people stop actively seeking to learn, develop, and grow different areas of their lives and interests when they graduate and move into the workforce. However, the most successful people never stop learning and growing. Self-improvement and personal growth are an important, and highly valuable, part of your career and life.
With so many schedules to keep track of, errands to run, gatherings to attend, and all the busy work of taking care of your family, investing in personal growth can seem like a waste of time. However, it’s more important now than ever to make the time.
Personal growth is a process of both understanding yourself and pushing yourself to reach your highest potential. It means always asking yourself who you are becoming and how you plan to get there. This involves working on new habits and hobbies, fostering new skills, and practicing new strategies to achieve your goals. Stretching one’s comfort zone requires risk and change; this is also where we will see our biggest growth and become the people we were meant to be.
One of Chris’ best friends has always emphasized, “If you find yourself being the smartest person in the group, run and find a new group.” So let’s agree to constantly grow. To do this, you can’t afford to close off avenues you need in order to reach your personal and professional goals. You can be proud of what you have accomplished, but let’s never be satisfied.
