We all need to grow in order to feel meaningful and achieve our full potential.
If you’re not growing and improving in some way, you will begin to feel that your life is lacking in purpose. In essence, a life without growth says to yourself and those around you: “I have nothing more to do here”. Of course this type of attitude can stand in the way of your happiness and productivity.
Have you ever started a worthwhile project or plan and felt a surge of energy and excitement? This is the natural state of growth. When you learn and experience new things that improve and add value to your life and the lives of others, you feel alive and empowered. One of the most effective ways to create a life of passion and meaning is to take steps toward reaching your potential. This includes learning more about yourself and your world; and creating a plan that helps you to move in the direction of your desires.
The process of striving for self-actualization never ends and it is not easy. It requires focus, determination and strength of character, all of which can be developed over time. It is a life-long undertaking and most of the benefits are derived from the journey not the destination.
